TO THE MEMBERS OF THE SENIOR CLASS OF 1952 

As you become additional links in the chain of St, Augustine's 
contributions to the leadership of the world, please accept n^r 
commendation and best wishes. 

You and the Alumni of St. Augustine's College since its founding 
are the College itself in so far as the outside world thinks of this 
institution. 

What you do is worth vastly more than the largest contributions 
of money that we can get, 

I am sure that this final year as a student of St, Augustine's 
College is Just one more layer of brick in your structure of effective 
living. _ y^ sincerely.

To You . . . 

Mr. Lynch, we sincerely dedicate the 1932 edition of THE FALCON. 

It was for many reasons that we selected you as dedicatee. Sentences will not 
allow us to thoroughly tell you why. In phrases we will say that you were selected 
because of your sincerity, humility, intense love for your work, and your appreciation 
for the spiritual in harmony with that which is intellectual. 

We further endow you with all that is between these covers because of your en- 
joyment of the classroom and your desire to aid youth in seeking the truth. Refer- 
ring to your personal philosophy, we cherish your aim: Culture, not for culture's 
sake.

MISS ST. AUGUSTINE'S and HER ATTENDANTS 




MISS ST. AGNES ?.nd HER ATTENDANTS 



CLASS HISTORY 

As we depart from the portals of St. Augustine's College, we, the Class of 1952, proud- 
ly look back on a bright day of Indian Summer in nineteen hundred and forty-eight. 
On this date a group of one hundred and fifty-five young men and women bewildering- 
ly entered the walls of this institution to further their education physically, morally and 
mentally. 

We were a little afraid, but possessed a strong determination. At the end of the first 
semester, we had begun to write a chapter in the history of the Class of 1952, when on 
publication of the Dean's list, such names as Susie Davis, 'Viola DeLaine, Charlie San- 
ders, Carol Slaughter, and Richard Gambrell appeared there. Class officers for this 
year' were: President, Bobby Clark; Secretary, Eula Gadson; and Treasurer, 'Willie Jones. 

Our second semester brought great encouragement because we had now been accepted 
as members of the "big family" and were on our way to accomplishments of great things. 
We parted that year with a tinge of regret, but with high hopes of returning the next 
year. 

The second year we came back fewer in number, but with a stronger determination 
to do well. We elected as our officers, Bobby Clark as President; Madeline Grissom, Sec- 
retary; and Treasurer, 'Viola DeLaine. We sent to the Student Council Carl Tavares, 
Ehzabeth Tomlinson, and Melvin Miller. As outstanding athletes, we had in our midst 
'Van Henderson, Bobby Clark, Jesse Clements, James Evans, Hudson Reed, Claud Burch, 
Joseph Clayton and others. Such members of our class as CharliQ Sanders, Elizabeth 
Tomlinson, Helen Chavis, Susie Davis, Jane Jackson, Dorotha Jackson, and 'Viola De- 
Laine were recipients of scholarships and awards. 

During our time spent here, we have had such actors and actresses as W. Juanita 
Mitchell, Glenda Hall, Eva Green, Joseph Swain, Anthony Ellis, Sarah Traeye, and 
Carol Slaughter. These have starred in major productions given by the Dramatic Club. 

In the summer of 1951, our ship sank; few were saved, and we returned to Saint 
Augustine's, fewer in number, but stronger in mind and will. We lost many outstanding 
members, but our sister junior college replaced them with such students as John Bellamy, 
Oliver Burnett and Madelle Wade, who was the originator of our present Charm Club 
among Freshmen young ladies. 

This successful year was prompted by our officers, Melvin Miller, President; Eliza- 
beth Tomlinson, Secretary; and Dorothy Carnage, Treasurer. We elected Dorotha Jack- 
son, Joseph Swain, and Kathryn Barge as representatives to the Student Council. During 
this, our junior year, we contributed such persons as Charlie Sanders, Elizabeth Tomlin- 
son, Anthony Ellis and Susie Davis to Alpha Kappa Mu Honor Society. 

At last we entered our final year of struggles. Although we started out with one hun- 
dred and fifty-five, we have dwindled down to only forty-eight, and we still possess 
some force. 

At the helm this year was Anthony Ellis, President; 'Viola C. DeLaine, Secretary; 
Evans Booker, Treasurer. We sent to the Stuident Council Olivette Merrick, Annie Mc-

CLASS OF 1952

CLASS PROPHECY 



412 North Dooley Street 
Hawkinsville, Georgia 
May 26, 1967 



Dear Annie, 



Welcome back to the States. We are all very proud of the wonderful work you have 
done while you were engaged by the Medical Association in India. I'm sure it makes you 
feel very happy to know that you have played such an important roll in helping to re- 
duce the high death rate in India. We can never express our gratitude to you for discover- 
ing Formula X which will add at least five years to each of our lives. 

Well, I'm sure since you have been out of this country for quite a few years, you're 
not exactly up to date on the whereabouts of our classmates. I've tried to keep tabs on all 
of them and I have been fairly successful. I know you're anxious to hear about them, so 
I'll try to tell you briefly about each as I think of them. 

Our ex-next door neighbor, Willie Jones, has at last had her dreams come true, she 
is a successful social worker in Paris. She received her degree in social work at N.Y.U. 
From the looks of her two children, I'd say Paris really agrees with them. I understand 
Willie has had the pleasure of hearing Susie Davis and Olivette Merrick in concert on 
many occasions. I'm sure you've heard of their fame. They have made two world tours 
thus far. It's really wonderful how they have managed to run their families so successful 
and yet remain such great career women. 

Remember Helen Chavis and Evelyn Gregg? Well, both of them are holding important 
positions as French interpreters at the United Nations. They seem to be keeping up with 
each other, both have three children. You know, I always did think Anthony Ellis deserved 
a place in Washington; well, evidently, the citizens of North Carolina are of the same opin- 
ion, because he is now one of their senators and from all reports, he is doing an excellent 
job. 

If you remember, Bright-Davies always did tell us she would become Mrs. Coleman, 
well, she knew what she was talking about. By the way she just returned from Europe, 
after completmg a series of news articles on world affairs. I received a letter from Eliza- 
beth Tomlinson last week. She's all wrapped up in work as usual. She recently became 
'Vice President of a large business firm in Frankfort, Germany. She was telling me that 
Dorothy Strachan is head of the Business Department at Florida A&M. 

Howard Bethea stopped by here last month. He was on his way to the convention of 
Southern principals which was held at Florida A&M. You can imagine how happy I was 
to see him. He was fortunate to become principal in his hometown. He was feeling very 
proud over having Ella Hannon Nance and Eva Green as members of his faculty. 

I received an invitation to the graduation of Claud Burch, Jr., from Elementary School, 
a few days ago. His father is chief coach at the University of Illinois. Elsie is doing a 
good job of keeping up the home front. It's really hard to imagine them with a son twelve 
years old. I heard from Dorotha Jackson, she had just spent two weeks with Elsie. She is 
instructor of Physical Education at the University of Ohio. 

Melvin Murrell or Snuffie is a very outstanding dentist in New Orleans. I know you 
heard about his discovery of a method of preventing tooth decay. It has really given him 
world-wide recognition. I know he hopes Melvin, Jr., will follow in his footsteps. D. Belle 
■Vandergriff Carter is also in New Orleans. She is enjoying life as a reception clerk in her 
new ultra-modern motel. I have a picture of her twins. Have you heard that Melvin Miller 
has recently been appointed Chief Justice of the Supreme Court ? 

Shirley Rolle is head of the Department of Elementary Education in Southern Florida. 
Last month, Ellen Wilder Chambliss played for her daughter's voice recital at Carnegie 
Hall. Mary Murphy Moore and Mary Jones are presently employed as private secretaries 
to Metro-Goldwyn-Meyer motion picture czar, Samuel Goldwyn. Carrie Ivy Cobb ended 
her visit in Columbus last week. She is employed by Warner Brothers as a private secre- 
tary. I understand she was offered a screen test, but her heart must really be in her work, 
because she refused to accept this offer. Hudson Street Reed has opened a school of aero- 
nautics in Asbury Park. 

By the way, Bobby Clarke has really made a name for himself in sports. He set a new 
broad jump record at the Olympics. 



I received a card from Preston Grier while he was in Atlanta attending the National 
Convention of the Omegas. Of course, you know he is Dr. Grier now, and one of the 
best. John Hairston and James Cobb are also well established doctors. 

Evans Booker and Donald Bailey have almost completed their space ship. I think it is 
to start it's trip to the moon sometime in the near future. Just imagine what the success 
of this ship will mean to our country. Since Jesse Clements won the title of "Mr. 
America," he has been offered several T.V. contracts and also quite a few screen tests, 
but it seems he'd rather remain a coach than go to Hollywood. James Evans was a top 
basketball coach, but he preferred art to coaching. He is now a United International 
Artist. I was reading in the Kappa Alpha Psi Journal where Joseph Swain, National Pole- 
mark, has returned from Scotland where a new chapter was recently chartered. 

Albert Clark is manager of the Cuban All Star Baseball Team. They are to meet the 
Brooklyn Dodgers in an exhibition game. The Dodgers are really fortunate in having 
Leroy Lassister as their manager. 

Dorothy Carnage is resting a few days at home after just winning her one-hundredth 
Civil Rights suit. I think she deserves some rest, don't you? Madell "Wade or Mrs. Keith 
Woodroffe is residing in Jamacia, New York. The last time I was up that way, I attended 
one of her fabulous dinner parties. Keith — Dr. 'Woodroffe — was planning to attend an 
international meeting of doctors in Berlin. 

The last time I had any news concerning Ed Joyner, he was still in Raleigh and had 
opened a youth center there. John Bellamy has made millions on 'Wall Street. I think it 
was very generous of him to give St. Augustine's a new gym. Oliver Burnett is instructor 
of French at the IJniversity of California. He did advance studying at the University of 
Paris. Charlie Sanders is National President or Phi Beta Sigma. I've read quite a few of 
the short stories he has written during his leisure hours. They are excellent. 

Ozie Belle Mitchell was librarian at Howard, but her husband convinced her that she 
should devote all of her time to their home, so she is now living a quiet and happy life 
as Mrs. Battle. 

Annie S. 'Wilkins, Elsie Herndon, and Madeline Grissom have joined forces in founding 
the best business school in the country. Their graduates are so capable, they are assured 
of securing jobs. I heard from 'Viola DeLaine a few days ago. She was employed as 
business instructor in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but she resigned in order to accompany her tenor 
soloist husband on a world tour. Juanita Mitchell and Glenda Hall gave a splendid 
performance yesterday on piano playhouse. They are scheduled to appear at Carnegie 
Hall next month. 

Carl Tavares writes me quite often. He is head surgeon at the private hospital he 
established in 'West Philadelphia. As we all expected, he married his college sweetheart 
and they have twins. 

'Well, Annie I guess this is about all the data I can give you concerning our classmates. 
Just to think, today, fifteen years ago, we were leaving St. Augustine's not knowing what 
our futures would be. And now, all of us have made accomplishments of which I am 
sure St. Augustine's is proud. I suppose I'll begin thinking on an idea for my sixth novel 
after my soprano performance tonight. I will be looking forward to hearing from you 
soon. Until then, you have my very best wishes. 

Sincerely, 
Pennie

CLASS SONG 

We smile as we past through the portals 
Which lead to the highway of life; 
For this we have shared with our fathers 
Our Alma Mater's pride. 

CHORUS 

St. Augustine's, our honor springs from thee, 
Your pleasure, your teachings and our God. 

The years we have spent together, 
Were of happiness and good cheer 
We've worked and shared in joy and tears 
At last our goal appears.

CLASS POEM 

To Saint Augustine's as we prepare to leave, [ 

And each day's events turn to memories; 
Memories of past days which now we find 
We must "smile on" and leave behind. 

Thru joys and sorrows, thru want and tears 
We've emerged complete after four long years, 
Guided by a hand divine yet unseen, 
Beloved and blessed Saint Augustine's. 

We have lost the simplicity of youth, 

And replaced folly with knowledge and truth; 

To Saint Augustine's we all owe a debt, 

A debt we can never repay. 

And yet, as we go through the world, let us try 
Think back on men like Penick, Deiany, and Cheshire; 
When at the communion rail the final day we sup, 
Pause — think back — smile on — 
But continue to look up! 

— Virginia E. Bright-Davies

IDEALS . . . jerninine and masculine 

THE IDEAL GIRL— 

In the making of an ideal girl for the Senior Class of 1952, we must take into consid- 
eration the statements of Holmes and Lessing: "Nature is in earnest when she makes a 
woman and nature intended that woman should be her masterpiece." We are earnestly 
making our masterpiece — Our Ideal Girl. 

The Ideal Girl will possess the hair of Pennie Peay and the velvet-like complexion of 
Viola DeLaine. Her smile will be that of Mary Jones and sparkling eyes of Willie Jones, 
and nose like Mary Murphy. Her lips will have that irresistable look like Ozie Belle 
Mitchell and her height will be equal that of Nannie Hargrove. Her scholastic ability will 
equal that of Susie Davis and her cooperation as good as Elizabeth Tomlinson. She will 
have the petite waist of Shirley Roole with hips like Carrie Ivey. She must 
maintain the popularity of Madeline Grissom with the coolness of Dorothy Strachan. 
Her personality must be none other than Dorotha Jackson, possessing a line of jive as 
Daisy Vandergriff. With the simplicity of Dorothy Carnage, she must display Elsie Moul- 
trie's taste in clothes. Her ambition will be as lofty as that possessed by Juanita Mitchell 
and conscientious as Elsie Herndon. She will always be as faithful as Helen Singletary and 
as studious as Annie Wilkins. She will dance as well as Helen Chavis, having the musical 
ability of Glenda Hall. Her legs must be like Eva Greene with a bust like Olivette Merrick. 

That's not all my friends. Such a girl, dear boys, who possesses all the qualities 
should be well on her way to a successful and happy life. She should be set on a high 
pedestal for some young man to admire, honor and desire.

HE'S MY IDEAL BOY— 

From the Class of 1952, we made a careful and thorough study of all the boys in the 
class and arrived at the conclusion that by taking the outstanding qualities each has and 
molding them into one, we can get the Ideal Boy. 

To this boy we are giving the physique of Claud Burch, the height of Evans Booker, 
with the black wavy hair of Keith Woodroffe, and that teasing brown complexion of James 
Evans, the laughing brown eyes of Jackie Queen, the mouth and provocative smile of 
Oliver Burnette, accentuated by the acqualine nose of Nathaniel Sorrell. We have given 
him the captivating personality of Melvin Murrell blended with the ambition of 'Van 
Henderson, and the par intelligence of Francis Clark, enhanced by the scholastic ability 
of Charlie Sanders. He will be the embodiment of the loyalty and sincereity of Hudson 
Reed, the trustworthiness of Preston Grier and the manliness of Willie Harris which pro- 
duces the business ability of John Bellamy. 

Believing that the possession of these qualities alone would only serve to make him 
more or less a bookworm and an anti-social being, we decided to give him the other 
traits that would make him a well-rounded personality; therefore, we are giving him 
the ability to "tickle the funny bone" like Albert Clark and to "send me" with the 
crooner's voice of Joseph Swain. To this we add the good taste in clothes of Carl Tava- 
res and the athletic prowess of Bobby Clark. .We made him as handsome as Jesse Cle- 
ments and as versatile as Melvin Miller. To these qualities will go the popularity of 
Joseph Swain and the refinement of Anthony Ellis. 

Now girls, remember, the war is now on hand, so "be aware," the boy possessing these 
qualities should be placed on a tower for all to honor and respect.

OPEN LETTER TO SAINT AUGUSTINE'S 

Dear Friends, 

I wish to address you in the form of a letter with thoughts from Zimmermon. In his 
essay, he wishes to remind everyone that the deeds of life must be compensated. 

The universe pays every man in bis coin; if you smile, it smiles upon you in 
. return; if you frown, you will be frowned at; if you sing, you will be invited 
into gay company; if you think, you ivill be entertained by thinkers; and if 
you love the world and earnestly seek for the good that is therein, you will 
be surrounded by loving friends, and nature will pour into your lap the 

treastures of the earth. Censure, criticize and hate, and you will be censured, 

criticized and hated by your fellow men. 

Every seed brings forth after its kind. Mistrust begets mistrust, and confidence 
begets confidence; kindness begets kindness; love begets love. Resist and you 
will be resisted. To meet the aggressive assault every entity rises up rigid and 
impentrable — while yonders mountain of granite melts atid floats away on 
the bosom of the river of love. 

We, the members of the senior class do believe success is achieved by those who seek 
the truth. You have much work to do, a task to accomplish, so don't give up today, because 
tomorrow you will sing your victory song. So hold high your ideals and principles of 
life. Endeavor to make your life one of giving and receiving, and when failure comes, 
try again and don't give up until you have made your contribution to the world. You 
know everyone has a contribution to make, be it great or small. So ask God for courage 
to pull through. We believe that you will agree with Greene when he said: 

There's the courage that n'erves you in starting to climb 

The mount of .success rising sheer; 

And when you have slipped back, there's the courage sjtblime. 

That keeps you from shedding a tear. 

These two kinds of courage, I give you my word. 

Are wofthy of tribute — but then. 

You will not reach the summit unless you have the third — 

The courage of try it again! 

Affectionately yours, 
DOROTHY A. CARNAGE 

Associate Editor
