THIRTY-FIVE YEARS OF EDUCATIONAL SERVICE IP S 1 SP S S 3 Peace, war, and peace again have visited our campus during the last four years. Sport clothes and collegiate af- fairs were replaced hy uniforms and war. Where hoys left, wise men have returned to find that the buildings on the campus overlook the same walks and the same trees. Their concreteness has had no mark of war-time scratched on their surfaces. Still from the auditorium comes the singing of the choir for vespers. The bell is still heard — urging stu- dents to and from campus affairs. As individuals we func- tion, with responsibilities to our country through ourselves, as free people, not as slaves by blind and inflexible dogmas. Let us not forget that this freedom is created through- out sunlit streets of America, in our children ' s play, in the sound of church bells, and in the right to stand up in assem- bly and say the truth as we know it — So let us remember all this, and hope that some day people all over the world will also know the meaning of this word freedom. THIRTY-FIVE YEARS OF EDUCATIONAL SERVICE 3 Winter Scene of Main Entrance Looking Toward the Administration Build- ing — Entrance to Higher Education for Negroes in North Carolina. The College— Its Setting THIRTY-FIVE YEARS OF EDUCATIONAL SERVICE 5 FROM THE PAGES OF HISTORY By Joseph H. Taylor, Ph.D. Chairman Social Science Division, N. C. College When the Editors of the Maroon and Gray requested that I write a short historical sketch of the college for the 1946 edition, I suggested that the students and faculty might be interested in some account of the early activities of the school. As a result of two disastrous fires in 1925 valu- able records of the school were destroyed. How- ever, through the painstaking efforts of Miss Pa- repa Watson, the Librarian, there has been placed at my disposal the earliest available bulletin of the National Religious Training School. This bul- letin was issued in July, 1912, two years after the founding of the school. It therefore, is the chief source for the short story which follows. The National Religious Training School, which in later years was to become the North Carolina College for Negroes, was founded by Dr. James E. Shepard. The school began operation in July, 1910, with 130 students. The first regular term, the following October, began with an enrollment of 109 students. The first building was started in April, 1910, and by January, 1912, ten buildings had been erected on twenty-five acres of land one-half mile from the corporate limits of the city of Durham. This site ( the present location l was a gift largely of the white people of the city. One of the origi- nal buildings — Avery Auditorium — still stands on the campus. Within the short span of two years the grounds had been put into excellent condition; walks and roadways laid out; garden plots and terraces made; and a water system installed. The monetary valuation of the plant had grown from nothing on January 1, 1910 to over $100,000 two years later. There is listed in the 1912 bulletin a staff of twenty-one persons. There was one teacher each of English, History, Mathematics, Science, Music, Latin and Greek, Millinery, Domestic Science, Domestic Art, and Carpentry. Dean John Henry Moore and one assistant were in charge of classes in Religious Training and Bible. There were two teachers of commercial subjects. The Teacher Training Department had one superintendent and an assistant. The teacher of English was also in charge of physical training. There was a Regis- trar; a Business Director; a Matron. A leading physician of Durham taught classes in Physiology and Hygiene. Among the activities listed for the year 1912- 1913 were a missionary concert, a temperance concert, and public meetings under the sponsor- ship of the Y. M. C. A. and the Theological Fra- ternity. Old President ' s Hume, on site now occupied by the College Library. Students of the present generation will be par- ticularly interested in learning that the Christ- mas holiday for 1912 was December 25. The students of 1912-1913 celebrated Emancipation Day on January 1 by being excused from classes. Board and room cost $7.00 per month; tuition, $1.00 per month; boys ' washing, seventy-five cents per month. Considerable saving could be accomplished if the student paid by the term. For the fall term, from the opening to Christmas, the cost was placed at $25.00. For the spring term, from Christmas to the close of school, the cost to the student was $37.00. $25.00 would pay the expenses of a country minister for a six weeks ' summer session; $90.00, the tuition and board of a student for one whole term; $500 to $1,000, the salary of a teacher or professor for one year; while $10,000 would erect and equip a building. The 1912 bulletin devotes considerable space to the commencement activities of that year. Then, as now, the commencement speakers were of high calibre and attainment. The joint liter- ary societies were addressed by William H. Lewis, noted Negro lawyer of Boston, and assist- ant attorney-general of the United States. The regular commencement orator was the venerable Charles H. Parkhurst, pastor of the Madison Ave- nue Presbyterian Church, of New York City. Following Dr. Parkhurst ' s address diplomas were awarded to 8 students — 5 women and 3 men — from the Commercial Department. Certificates were also awarded in Penmanship. Sewing, and Millinery. The Durham Daily Sm?j, of May 23, 1912, had the following story about the commencement activities: With the band playing enlivening airs, the fe- male students attired in modest white dresses, with the male students carrying themselves in true military style, the campus of the National Religious Training School yesterday afternoon at 3 o ' clock was an inspiring scene. The occasion was the first class day and tree planting in the history of the young institution. Visitors from the various sections of the state and several other states were present and at the conclusion of the program visited the various departments having (Continued on Page 82) This is Avery Auditorium at N. C. College From this building the people of North Carolina have built a state institu- tion, the only Negro state supported Liberal Arts College in this country. Around this building have been built many buildings, classrooms, labora- tories, gymnasiums, dormitories, and a library. And many men and women have come to the buildings to spend their lives in a great work. Many have passed this symbol of the past and creation of the new, bent upon learning the way to a fuller life of usefulness. The building is old — The College is ageless, neither young nor old. For the people of North Carolina have willed that it shall be dedicated to the greatest of creative achievement — education of youth. THIRTY-FIVE YEARS OF EDUCATIONAL SERVICE 7 The Newi This is B. N. Duke Auditorium, center of community and college cultural and religious life. Campus That her students may study into the great field of science — the College Science build- ing is a meeting place for theory and practice in scien- tific achievement. The Senior Bowl — where common bonds between generations of students are held sacred. That her students may enjoy a homelike atmos- phere, beautiful dormi- tories for men and wom- en are maintained. Realizing the future problems of the home. The Practice Cottage gives to students actual experience in home man- agement and develop- ment. ACADEMIC FIELDS To give her students a broad preparation for good citi- zenship, the college otters courses leading to B. S. and A. B. Degrees in Liberal Arts courses. Here the student may delve into the social sciences and allied groups — history, political science, economics, phil- osophy, and psychology; sociology, home economics, edu- cation, commerce and public health. He may learn the ton- gues of other lands — French, German, Latin and Spanish. English becomes a major part of his training. The Fine Arts — music, dramatic art, and art — are taught. The pure sciences — botany, chemistry, mathematics, biology, and zoology are studied from the standpoint of theory aug- mented by practical laboratory experience. More than theory is imparted at N. C. College. It is a union of culture on one hand, and a broad general educa- tion on the other. From the undergraduate school, the road branches into the professional schools: law, public health, education, com- merce, science, or perhaps into the school of Library Science for special training.

In these years you saw many changes in classmates, on the campus, and in the nation. As freshmen, you heard war declared and saw our men leave for the service. And in the four years of war and sorrows, we saw your smile and behind those smiles courage; for hardly a one of you was not affected directly by the war — and many of you had rela- tives overseas. Now the world calls you as adults, and we look back on your four college years with gratitude of what State did for you. We hope that your stay on the campus was to live up to the highest of State traditions, its understand- ing, the development of priceless friendships, and the development within you of character, ideals and dreams. We regret that you leave us, but we are anxious for you to put to use the knowledge gained. And though you be scattered across the country, we look forward to your hasty return.

Almost a big frog in the State puddle— you JUNIORS As Juniors you returned this year depleted in number hut determined to carry on in the spirit of the class of 1947. We missed many of you, but en- joyed meeting others who did return to State this fall, and we welcomed those of you who transferred into our ranks from other schools. And we miss those boys who have left for the Service or who graduated ahead of you. as a result of summer study. As Juniors you are an in-between-class, you are not yet the top class on the campus, and neither are you new. We look forward to the time when you will become campus leaders. Already you are going through a training period. As a class you should have solidarity that comes from your thinned ranks and your months of living together. Now. as you begin to realize that the last year of your college life is ap- proaching, you should endeavor to make the greatest possible contribution to the college, to the community, and to yourselves.

Those of you who carried bags and trunks last year, became guides for tours of the cam- pus, gave advice to freshmen, and assisted in cheering the homesick fresh- men. You started the year with a wonderful feeling because you were sopho- mores and no longer the " babes in arms " ' of dear old State. You could now show the freshmen how to behave as you had been so painfully shown the year before. You feel that you know the " ins " and " outs " of college life, and you were ready and willing to let everyone know it. SOPHOMORE CLASS 1st row, left to right: Alexander.

Charleston, S. C. Bynum, Beatrice V. . Thorpe, Irma Lane Speed So new, but soon so wise — Freshmen The Freshman Class of 194(5 entered State with high aspirations of achievement and success. You, as a class felt that you possessed the potential qualities necessary to carry you through the four years of your college ca- reer. During Freshman Week, you received from your advisors, the faculty, and the staff, invaluable aid which helped you to become better adjusted to the new phase of your life. With their assistance you easily leaped the hurdles of registration and placement tests. The next weeks wevv filled with studying and quizzes in preparation for the first quarter examinations. After these tests were completed, Christmas and vacation loomed foremost in your minds, and in almost no time you boarded the train for home and holiday fun. As a Class, to be graduated in 1949, you must uphold and strengthen the aims of North Carolina College and during the next three years you must make the most of your college careers. College is a grand place anytime, but when it ' s State with a Freshman Class like yours, the outlook for 1949 is very consoling. THIRTY-FIVE YEARS OF EDUCATIONAL SERVICE FRESHMAN CLASS }M $ a .

THIRTY-FIVE YEARS O F EDUCATIONAL SERVICE The College— Its Glamour THIRTY-FIVE YEARS OF EDUCATIONAL SERVICE Miss Eliza Mae Jeffers Class of 1946 Phoro by Grahai Miss Ruth Spaulding Class of 1947 Miss Pauline Marsh Class oj 1948 Miss Margaret Stewart Class oj 1949 The College- Its Student Organizations Organizations have always been a stimulus for achievement. To us as individuals, they otter an opportunity for self-improvement and advance- ment. More important than that, these organizations otter us chances to form lasting- friendships with the people with whom we work. They give us confidence in our work — confidence that helps us push ahead with new ideas and improved talents. The importance of these organizations can never be underestimated in its benefits to the individual or to society. It is through or- ganizations that individuals can bring out new plans and ideas for the prog- ress of civilization. Very tew of us can achieve success alone. The older we become, the more we realize the truth of this statement and recognize the importance of having an organization to act as a goal and later to act as a helping hand to our fu- ture activities. It is the right of every individual to be able to join an organ- ization to which lie can give his ideas and from which he can gain incentive for further achievement. We get out of them what we put into them; and from them we can obtain much in the way of friendships, confidence in our- selves and our accomplishments, and inspiration for our present and future work.

Its function is to develop the individual socially, morally, and physically, and by so doing interest others in the field of physical education. The present membership enrollment is approximately 75 and with an ever increasing de- mand for physical educators, participation in this field is advisable. With a splendid advisory committee composed of Coach J. B. McLendon, Coach L. T. Walker, Miss Q. A. Walton, and Mrs. W. T.

Henderson .... Recording Secretary Miss Q. A. Walton Advisor Mrs. W. T. Bailey Advisor The W. A. A. is an organization of which one becomes a member by maintaining a " C " average. The governing body is a board of directors elected by popular ballet. By cooperating with W. A. A. ' s all over the country we try to further a spirit of sportsmanship, interest in ath- letics and physical well-being among college women. The association sponsors major, minor and individual sports, in addition such activities as dancing, swimming and hiking. Awards are made on the basis of points which are earned by participation in the activi- ties over a period of four years. The W. A. A. is a member of Negro Women ' s Intercollegiate Athletic Association which is composed of Colleges having an intramural program for women. Each year the N. W. I. A. A. sponsors seasonal sport days at which times representatives from the college W. A. A. ' s come together and participate in sports with awards given to the winning color team. This has been a favorable year for the Women ' s Athletic Association, and as more young women become interested and the enrollment increases the prospects for a greater future organ- ization are indeed very bright.

Howard University Athletics At North Carolina College J. B. McLendon Head. Division of Physical Education Basketball North Carolina College began its bas- ketball back in the 20 ' s and with no gym- nasium and few arrangements for prac- tice and games, was able to do but little. With the College ' s entrance into the C.I. A. A. in 1927 added emphasis was placed on the sport but not until the gym- nasium was built in 1935 did basketball become a popular sport. In 1939. the Eagles with a freshman team, the tallest team in the country, broke into the first division of the Con- ference for the first time. In 1940 they advanced to the runner-up position in the Conference and in 1941 won the first Conference Championship in the school ' s history and National rating as No. 1 team. Then for every year since, the team has finished either 1st or 2nd in the Con- ference winning the runner-up position in ' 42, ' 45 and Championships in ' 43, ' 44, and ' 46 and the State College Champion- ship six consecutive years. The National Collegiate Athletic Association has ranked the Eagles in the top twenty teams of the Nation for the past four years. " ' The Eagles Fly High " is a well- known slogan and one which shows the achievement of the teams of the past 8 years for they have ranked first in of- fense, first in defense, and first in games won for those periods. Good sportsman- ship is the password for all the Eagles and no team in the country takes the floor without the knowledge that a fighting North Carolina College Eagle Team will meet them in defense of their many laurels. Football of N. C. College The football teams of North Carolina College have made history; some of it as early as 1919, when one of its teams took part in what is considered as the 1st foot- ball game under lights for Negro Col- leges. North Carolina College on the heels of several very successful baseball seasons entered the Colored Intercollegiate Ath- letic Association in 1927. won its first conference football game in 1931 and fin- ished in the first division for the first time also. Again in 1935 and 1939. 1940 and finishing in first place in 1941 placing several men on the All-Conference and All-American teams. World War II reduced the number of players, made materials scarce and travel difficult, but the college took part in the 1st Annual Capital Classic in Washing- ton, D. C. before 18,000 fans, placed one player on the All-American team and took pride in one who established the drop-kick record for the Conference. No football in 1943 and 1944 made a come back in 1945 doubly difficult but a selected freshman coach with an all-fresh- man team put N. C. College in the 3rd place with only one conference loss. This team returned to the Capital Classic ' s 4th annual game. The fine calibre of men who have di- rected the football teams, the fine calibre of the men themselves, their determina- tion to excel has earned for the " Eagles " the name of " Good Sportsmen, " and a reputation for hard, clean, competition and a command of respect from all teams everywhere. Women ' s Intramural Athletic Program Inspired by the Physical Education Majors, an active intramural program consisting of basketball, Softball, archery, swimming, and many other sports headed the program for the year of ' 46! The highlight of this program was the participation of each class in a basketball tournament which aroused keen competi- tion and thrilling exhibitions of skills and techniques enjoyed by the student body. The annual Sport ' s Day held in May was a colorful and competitive event. This program composed of major and minor sports, enabled every young wo- man to take an active part. For the first time in the history of North Carolina College complete track and field events were ottered. This proj- ect was conducted, planned, and executed by Senior Physical Education Majors. The superb condition and skill of the par- ticipants afforded strong competition and the spectators marveled at the tech- niques demonstrated so expertly and with such noble sportsmanship.

The College-Its Future What is the future of such a college after 35 years of service? Will it help shape the future destiny of the State and Nation? Will it send forth men and women to become great educators, musicians, scientists, or artists? That depends upon the students themselves. The Col- lege can provide the tools with which to build the world of the future — the rest depends on the student. The tradition of achievement will rest partially upon the students. The future of the College and the future of its students go hand in hand.

The exhibits are above the average, and justly place the work of the school equal to that of the best Negro institutions of learning. What was the original purpose of the National Religious Training School? The following facts are set forth in the bulletin under the heading. THE SCHOOL NEEDED: To justify the existence of any new enterprise for the general welfare of mankind it is always necessary to demonstrate that there is a situation demanding the inauguration of such an effort. The following facts are sufficient to prove the need of the National Religious Training School: 1. There are 30.000 Negro ministers in the United States. Of this number accurate statistics show that onlv 10 per cent are trained, hence the appalling fact — 27,000 untrained ministers large- ly controlling the destiny of 10.000,000 people. Negro ministers exert a most profound influence over the race. No educational scheme for the permanent uplift and betterment is worth while that does not take into consideration the active leaders of the race. 2. The permanent uplift of the race must come through moral and religious training. The charge that the young Negro is not as reliable as the old Negro is due to the fact that religion played the most important rjart in the life of the slave, and as a result, he could always be depended on and never betrayed the trust. He was always faithful. These qualities must again become racial assets, if we are to raise up a trustworthy citizenship. 3. The increase of crime can be traced to a lack of religious training. The moral law must be su- preme. A man must be so taught that the law within will restrain him from cheating, stealing, killing and dishonesty. 4. There is no similar institution; it conflicts with none now established. It is non-sectarian and is open to all faiths and creeds. 0i U eJie ?s Jim MontouRe Moan That is, the first time we get a depend- able tip that there is NEWS up there of special interest to our readers.
