Published bythe Students of
Arkansas A. IVI. and N. College
Pine Bluff, Arkansas
This yearbook represents a promise and a prophecy,
which, should they materialize, will mark an important
milestone in the development of this institution. The
year l949 finds A. M. and N. College looking forward to
full accreditation as a Grade "A" institution by the North
Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.
lt is therefore fitting that the Class of '49, standing at the
point of their greatest appreciation and concern for the
welfare of A. M. and N., should present a pictorial inven-
tory of their Alma Mater. lt is fitting that any college
facing our future world should invite examination and
demonstrate its potentialities. This is a service which the
Class of '49 has sought to render in the interest of the
great responsibility which weighs upon this institution.
lt is not a perfect service, but it is what we thought just
and proper for the time. The future course of this insti-
tution will be shaped by those who earnestly seek to un-
derstand its needs and who put themselves to the more
difficult task of supplying them.

LAWRENCE A. DAVIS, A.B., M.A., LL.D.
President Davis has gained wide popularity as a speaker, and has
appeared before large audiences in many colleges and outstanding
meetings in the South. He has attended national educational meet-
ings in different sections of the country. At present he is president
of the Conference of Presidents of Negro Land Grant Colleges, member
of the Governing Board of Equalization of Educational Opportunities,

An integral part ol' the col-

Wlhile not actively engaged in

sponsibility of the great task of
moulding the lives ol the stu-

not be stimulated to do his best

come the gl ad
Again we have a college annual. l s
This publication represents the first such effort since the
Class of l9LJI and its sponsor, hiss L. L. Jones, did themselves and
the college great credit in a magnificent edition.
blow, the Class of l9u9 under the able guidance of Yr. h. Berne
ette lgung committed itself to eicell-lrlg anything our college had
ever produced. The assiduous industry and enthusiasm which they
have displayed over the past months have provided rewarding dividends
in this rumor able work of art. l heartily congratulate them.
horeover, the college annual is T166 definitely estaolished as
a yearly publication and will be financed through the payment of a
student fee collected at the time of registration. This 'dill guar-
antee continuation of the project.
lt will be remembered that in my message for the last yearbook
promises of certain physical improvements , increased appropriations
and a more highly trained staff were made. 'fhose cgnmlitments have
been fulfilled in a large measure.
at this time it is my pleasure t0 announce that we have assurance
of an appropriation from the State approaching one half million dollars.
also, it is almost certaln that the legislature will grant sufficient
funds to construct a science building and an agricultural building.
lil addition, plans are underway to secure funds to construct a student
union-dining hall combination building, a field house and more dormitory
space. All this should enhance our services. Qur goal is to become a
member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary
Schools in l95O.
To each one of you this beautiful annual should be a storehouse
of fine mauories and an imperishable link between you and unborn

HONORABLE SIDNEY SANDERS MCMATH
Arkansas is extremely fortunate to have as its governor the able
Sidney S. McMath of Hot Springs, Arkansas, who recognizes and has
approached the problems of the state in a statesman-like manner. His
government is progressive and is pledged to all the people of Arkansas.
His slogan "The People Rule" gives to all citizens the right to deter-
mine the future of our government in a way that all will benefit.

Alpha Phi Alpha, a national fraternity, is the oldest ol' Negro fraternities, having been founded at Cornell
University in 1906 by a group of young men who believed in scholarship and "closer contacts among them-
On March 25, ISHS, this new fraternal spirit came to the eampus ol' Arkansas A. Nl. and N. College with
the establishment ol the Gamma Delta Chapter. Since that time the lraterntiy, realizing' that the college ae-
tivities and responsibilities do not rest completely upon the ,Xdministration and faculty, but on the reliable
Character ol' its students, has participated extensively in eampus activities.
ln an ellort to stimulate high scholastic attainment, each year the lraternity awards a 350.00 scholarship to
a high ranking' young man whose conduct warrants such consideration.

Evidences of the love and devotion of the alumni can be seen in the
following pages. Although graduates and former students find themselves
in various parts of the United States, there are traces of this love manifested
through the organization of a chapter of the alumni association wherever
sufficient numbers congregate. Chapters of the association extend from
Los Angeles to Detroit. Other out of state chapters are found in Chicago
and Saint Louis. Local chapters are active in the following cities: Pine
Bluff, Little Rock, Camden, El Dorado, Prescott, Wynne, Helena, Cotton
Plant, and Arkadelphia.
The staff and sponsor of the yearbook wish to thank the various
chapters for their splendid cooperation in sending pictures lor this publi-
cation. It is regretable that the l949 Lion must go to press without pic-
tures of the Detroit and Helena chapters.

IN DAYS OF OUR CHILDHOOD

We, the Staff of the T949

cere appreciatioh to those who
have advertised with us. We
ask that our readers show their
gratitude with their patronage.
TI-I E STAFF
SEXTON SEELS MORE TRAINED BUYERS
THAN ALI OTHER WHOLESALE GROCERS
Woman buyers judge largely
by intuition. Appreciate
immediately the value of new
products in brightening their
service. Weigh the value of the
product in their individual
service rather than by a
price standard alone.
Buyers for the institutional and restaurant
field-whether men or women-a re the shrewdest and
most experienced there are. They are skilled in the
technique of appraising foods. They make full use of
scientific methods of ascertaining food cost. They
weigh the cost of waste in making their decisions.
Sexton sells to 60,000 individual units in this great
Divided Between Men and Women
Mon buyurs are apt to depend
upon careful analysis. Slower to
accept new items because they
prefer to have things more
standardized. Sometimes over-
emphasize price as a factor in
market. The remarkable growth of the company has
been based entirely on quality and service. A policy
of fine merchandise, carefully packaged, fairly priced
and promptly delivered has won the confidence and
good will of these trained buyers. Throughout the
years Sexton has based every step of its growth upon
