FOREWORD 



We, the Senior Class of 1956, present our yearbook, The Falcon. 
The task of publishing this volume has been arduous but pleasant. In 
producing this annual, we have acquired a richer experience in human 
relations, in making decisions, and in perseverence. All of these exper- 
iences should make us better citizens and prepare us to overcome the 
many obstacles that will confront us in life. 

The yearbook Staff has attempted to record for each of you some of 
the memorable episodes during your college life at Saint Augustine's 
College. We sincerely hope that the 1956 Falcon will cause each of you 
to continue to work to preserve the customs, traditions and ideals of the 
college.

TO YOU . . . 



Mrs. Walker, we sincerely dedicate the 1956 Falcon, the fruit of our labor. Our 
choice was not made in haste, but after many hours of deliberation and thought. 

There are many reasons why you should be our dedicatee and all of them are 
sound, yet, too numerous to state in the space allocated for this dedication. Yet, 
suffice it to say that because of your sincerity, humility, and devotion to your work, 
and helpfulness to us, you have epitomized an ideal person. No less reason is your 
maintaining all the records and advising us of our progress during the past four 
years. You have constantly made us conscious of our academic standing and moti- 
vated us to excel in all undertakings. 

The one regret we have in dedicating our Yearbook to you is that words are so 
ineffectual when it comes to expressing how we really feel toward you; yet, believe 
us when we say simply, "Thank you, and may The Good Lord-forever bless and 
keep you. - ' 




Dear Senior Class: 

On the occasion of your leaving St. Augustine's College after an academic sojourn 
of four years, I congratulate you. Your graduation will truly be the commencement 
of a new chapter in the book of life. We have attempted to acquaint you with the 
religious, scientific and humanistic implications in the matter of everyday living. It 
is my wish that you will now be better able to evaluate change in terms of continuing, 
human progress rather than as a threat to human stability. 

Always carry with you a Christian optimism based upon reality. Forever be 
true to God and vour fellowman. 



May success ever attend you. 



Very truly yours, 




a.

CLASS HISTORY 



One, two, three, four years have sifted 
through the sands of time; and we, the Class of 
'56, can look back with grateful thoughts, 
memories of hardships, failures, and many 
moments to treasure. 

Have you ever felt the air of dignity or like 
the world is at your feet? Well, this is the feeling 
of 'every senior. To really understand this 
feeling let me relate the history of the class. 

It was September, 1952, that we entered the 
gates of Saint Augustine's and began our regis- 
tration for the first year of working toward a 
degree. 

To the upperclassmen we were just a bunch 
of "green" freshmen, but to ourselves there 
was no group of students who were more 
dignified and knew so much as we. We had a 
lot to learn. It is not true, however, that in 
every instance we were dumb and had no 
common sense, because most of us knew that 
it was here that we would begin to lay a firm 
foundation and prepare ourselves not only 
intellectually, but spiritually and socially as 
well. 

Our class worked hard during the first se- 
mester to prove ourselves worthy of all the 
struggling our parents and teachers were doing 
for us, and we did prove it. 

We were organized, and James Clark was 
elected president of the class. 

All of us finally began to catch on to the 
swing of campus life and so we learned to apply 
ourselves socially. Many joined such activities 
as the Dramatics Club, Choir, Canterbury Club, 
and other groups of interest. 

It was November and Homecoming had 
rolled around. We worked diligently to decorate 
our float, and Winifred Lee could not hove 



been prouder to reign as our "Miss Freshmen 
Class." 

Let us not forget our great athletes, Yes, 
the ones this class brought to Saint Augustine's. 
Do you remember Tony Washington and Owen 
Duncan in football, Leroy Harrison in track, 
and our contributions to basketball? 

The CIAA tournament was a highlight our 
first year. We showed off such players as Donald 
Young, Richard Mosely, Tony Washington, 
and Clarence Burks who was named "Most 
Valuable Player for '52-'53." These great 
players helped the Falcons win the title of 
runners-up in the tournament. It was this year 
that Coach Roy D. Moore was given a trophy 
for "Outstanding Coach of the Year." We were 
broken-hearted because we lost the game to 
Winston-Salem by two points, but our spirit 
was high for we knew that we couldn't win 
everything. 

The tournament was over and we resumed 
our studies for soon there would be a reckoning 
day on the "Ole Campus." The spring was 
here and some of us got just plain old spring 
fever, but there were books to be read and 
term papers to be written. How did we make it? 
The end of May was here, exams were taken, 
and clothes were packed. We were headed for 
home and the first year was completed. 

We hear dire stories of how, at the end of 
the School year, students throw their books in 
a trunk and vow they will not think of school 
again until vacation is over. This was not 
true for us because memories of classmates 
lingered in our hearts. 

It was September, '53 and we were back at 
the "Ole Camping Ground" greeting old faces 
and preparing to initiate the freshmen. In a 



14 



few weeks we had settled down to the same old 
routine. 

James Clark was again elected president of 
the class and from this time on remained 
president. 

As in everv class history a few of the tribe 
were lost, but fortunately we gained more. 

The year was full of events. Homecoming 
was here and Shirley Cherry was our "Belle 
of the South." 

By this time the year was in full swing and 
many of us were pledging sorcrities and fra- 
ternities. Ilene Moore and Yida McCon- 
neaughey were pledged in an honor society, 
Alpha Kappa Delta. Some of us had not quite 
reached this step but we were still striving. 

Football and basketball seasons were over 
and we were looking forward to the spring 
dances. 

As each day unfolded, we ventured into new 
experiences, and sought new tasks to undertake. 
The class was knitted close together. We were 
one for all and all for one. 

By the end of the year, we were looking for- 
ward to becoming sophisticated juniors. 

When the summer of '54 was over and we 
returned as juniors, the air of sophistication 
was with us. 

We dreaded the loss of so many girls who 
were majoring in pre-nursing. The ratio of the 
class decreased tremendously, but they were 
our classmates from the beginning and quite 
often they are mentioned by us. 

Life on the campus was nothing new to us 
by this time so becoming adjusted was no longer 
a problem. When the year began to move 
along smoothly, we began to think about events 
for the year. Would there be a Junior and Senior 
Prom? Who would make the honor societies? 
Will I ever cross this burning sand? All of these 
were questions which ran through our minds. 



In January of 1955 James Clark, Vida Mc- 
Conneaughey, Julia Bryant, Sarah Leach, 
George Brown, Samuel Brown, Marjorie Forte 
and Shirley Addison were initiated into Alpha 
Kappa Mu. In Phi Kappa Alpha went Vida 
McConneaughey and Samuel Brown and to 
Sigma Rho Sigma was added Vida McCon- 
neaughey and Ilene Moore. To Beta Kappa 
Chi went Robert Turner and Janes Hill. 

By this time we had in our class a queenly 
court. Shirley Cherry was chosen "Sweetheart 
of Alpha Phi Alpha," Barbara Parker, the 
"Sigmas Sweetheart" and Lela Amons, "The 
Sweetheart of Kappa Alpha Psi." 

When the year was over, we had prepared 
ourselves in every respect to be called seniors. 

We came back with work in our systems and 
co-operation in our minds. 

To the queenly court was added Vivian 
Mackey, "Miss Saint Augustine's," and De- 
lores Thomas, "Queen of Omega Psi Phi." 

To the honor societies, James Hill was initi- 
ated into Alpha Kappa Mu, in Phi Kappa 
Alpha went George Johnson, Willie Newell, 
Ilene Moore, Sarah Leach, and Shirley Ad- 
dison. James Clark, George Johnson, Vida Mc- 
Conneaughey, Marjorie Forte, Willie Newell, 
Robert Turner, Samuel Brown, Julia Bryant, 
Dejuanna Browning, and George Brown were 
named Who's Who Among Students in 'American 
Colleges and Universities. 

We prepared ourselves in every way for 
graduation, and at last May 21, 1956, was here. 

Four more chapters were added to the history 
of Saint Augustine's, four years of work and 
time. We have completed our studies on this 
campus, but where shall we go from here?

CLASS PRAYER 

Dear Lord, to Thee we come today, 
With our College Parting Prayer; 
We ask that with us Thou will stay, 
As we go here and there. 



We hate to depart from this dear School, 
But we realize that we must do so; 
Therefore, help us to remember this rule, 
'Do your best where'er you go." 

Our Heavenly Father, we Thank Thee, 
For the learning that we have received 
From the wonderful teachers at St. Aug, 
Whom we regret much to leave. 

During our stay at Dear Ole St. Aug, 
We've enjoyed and loved it so; 
That we ask Thy Blessings upon this School, 
Which is honest and worthy, we know. 

When the last student of "56" cannot be found. 

God will be with us we know; 

But memories will still linger behind us, 

As all classes come and go. 

Guide us, The Senior Class of "56" 
Watch o'er us from day to day; 
Keep us loyal, kind, and cheerful, 
Make us more like Thee, we Pray. 

Betty J. Hartsfield

LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT 



We the class of 1956, being in good mental condition 
as usual, and in much better temper than usual, do 
hereby declare this to be our last will and testament. 
As to such estate as it has pleased the fates and our own 
capable hands and brains to win for us, we do dispose 
of the same as follows: 

To our President, Dr. James A. Boyer, we bequeath 
our undying love and affection for the guidance and 
justice he so graciously gave us. 

To our Deans, Faculty and Staff, we bequeath our 
sincere love and appreciation for their unfailing kindness 
and aid. 

To our Advisor, Mr. C. H. McLendon, we bequeath 
our gratitude and thanks for being our rock and main- 
stay, and wish for him success with other students in 
years to come. 

To the Junior Class, our rightful heirs, we leave our 
most important and valuable properties, our self-satis- 
faction, our importance, and our wisdom we possess in 
enormous quantities and we hope that the said gifts 
will be used with pride. 

To the Sophomore Class, we bequeath the ability to 
face and overcome any tasks which confront them be- 
fore graduation. 

To our friends, the Freshman Class, we leave the 
courage to endure any obstacles which they might 
encounter before they become Seniors. 

The following may seem trifling bequeaths, but we 
hope they may be accepted, not as worthless things, 
lavishly thrown away, but as valuable assets to those 
who may receive them, and a continual reminder of 
the generosity of heart displayed in our bestowal. 

Dejauanna Browning leaves Leon Patton her undying 
love and affection and hopes that he remembers the 
happy hours they spent together. To Francis Evans, 
what could have been; and to Zenobia Browning and 
Barbara Mosee her sophisticated and 'dapt airs. 

To my fellow Pre-theologians, I, Samuel Browne, will 
the effort to follow in my footsteps faithfully in the 
Chapel. Also to Marlin Poitier, the right to qualify as 
the Chaplain's Student Assistant for the next three 
years. 

To a Freshman, Gloria Brown wills the ability to 
change a major three times without losing any credit.

sition in Alpha Kappa Mu.

dying affections to William Whitaker that it may shine

ability to be able to live' four years on St. Augustine's

scholastic average.

Foster and the ability to make any grades below "B."

leaves her ardent and everlasting friendship and her 
love for Business Education with hopes that she finds 
the subjects as fascinating as she.

dying affections to Opal Boyd, that it may shine through- 
out her entire years and to Robert Johnson he leaves 
his ability to be cool, calm, and collected.

CLASS PROPHECY 



The Scene: The action of this skit takes place on a 
straight through train from California to 
North Carolina. 

The Time: May 19, 1981. 

(A middle-aged lady comes in the train and is having 
difficulty in placing her bag on the rack. An eminent 
gentleman, professionally dressed, is seated in front of 
where the lady is standing. The lady speaks): 

Vida: Pardon me sir, but would you mind helping 
me with my bags? 

Wade: (suddenly realizing that someone is behind 
him) Certainly not, Madam. Excuse my rudeness. (He 
immediately rises and places the bag securely on the 
rack.) 

Vida: Thank you, Sir. (She proceeds to look for her 
seat number, mumbling to herself) 41 — forty — Oh! 
Yes, here it is, number 42. I believe it is beside you sir. 

Wade: Yes, it is. Do have a seat. (She sits after the 
gentleman removes her coat. Then, she scans her 
present surroundings and notices the initials on the 
written document from which her seatmate reads — 
J. W., Attorney at Law, Berkeley, Calif. She then notices 
the name JAMES WADE on the brief case on the 
floor. She repeats the name, but not wanting to be 
inquisitive, she sits idly.) 

Wade: (Scanning his paper) The weather in Cali- 
fornia is beautiful these days. Do you live here? 

Vida: (Happy for a moment to talk) No, I have been 
on tour and I am making a return trip. I noticed your 
name is James Wade. I remember a friend of mine in 
college by that same name. 

Wade: Is that right? Where did you attend college? 

Vida: At St. Augustine's in Raleigh. Oh, that has 
been years ago. 

Wade: (Astonished, but reserved) St. Augustine's? 
That happens to be my Alma Mater. 

Vida: It is? Then you are probably the James Wade 
I knew. Do you remember a naive little girl by the 
name of Vida McConneaughey? 

Wade: Do I? Why I will never forget her even if it 
were fifty years from now. She was a busy-body young 
lady. No, indeed, I could never forget my adopted sis, 
Vida. She was quite a girl in college. 

Vida: (Fully aware of the fact that he has failed to 
recognize her.) Yes she was. Where is she now? 

Wade: Well, I don't know, to tell the truth. I never 
heard from her after graduation. I certainly would like 
to hear from her or see her now. 



Vida: (A little resentful) Well, Mr. Wade, you are 
looking at Mrs. Vida McConneaughey Germany right 
now. 

Wade: (Jerking his glasses off) No. It can't be? 
Vida? 

Vida: (smiling) None other. 

Wade: (Not quite recovering from his shock) You 
have changed so I hardly recognized you. After twenty- 
five years, I should forget. After all, I am aging everyday. 

Vida: You may be, but I am certainly not. It only 
seems like yesterday that I was at dear ole St. Aug. as 
a student. 

Wade: Say, do you ever hear from any of our old 
classmates? 

Vida: Well, while I was traveling, I went to Florida 
and spent a few days in Tallahassee with my old room- 
mate, Carolyn Mackey. She is Mrs. Andrew Knight, 
now. She has two lovely children and her son is a junior 
at St. Aug. Of course you know St. Augustine's is a 
university. Jeffrey Cuffee is Dean of the School of Re- 
ligion and his wife, Ilene Moore, is Dean of the School 
of Social Work. She has Eudora Ector and Molly Bur- 
well as her assistants. 

Wade: Isn't that fine. Walter Swindell has founded 
a School of Social Work in the Virgin Islands. Robert 
Turner owns a medical clinic down there. James Hill is 
employed as Supervisor of Labratory Technicians in 
this clinic. He and Turner found a cure for cancer. 

Vida: I was reading about that in the Wooden Journal, 
which is edited by James Wooden! Ina Holloway is 
directing an English Clinic in this same building in 
Chicago. I visited there during my tour. Ad61ph Greene 
and Doris Burney are married and are living there, 
also. Adolph is proprietor of Greene's A. B.C. Business 
College. He has on his staff Eloise Washington, Lillian 
Roberts, Dejuanna Browning, Bettye Burgess and Betty 
Hartsfield. Doris is supervising a kindergarten. She has 
Mable Spearman, Valerie Fields, Margaree Jones, 
Samuel Williams, Betty Jones, Richard Cox and Wini- 
fred Lee working with her. 

Wade: Speaking of Illinois, I saw Frances Coble in 
Danville. She is supervising elementary schools there. 
Gwendolyn and Teola Jones are working with the Dept. 
of Education on the Advisory Board. Both of them are 
married and living in Danville. 

Vida: I attended a concert in Los Angeles given by 
Thelma Bowens. She performed beautifully at the piano. 
Leroy Harrison and John Freeman are her managers. 
Theressa Newkirk and Myrna Home are their secre- 
taries. 



38 



Wade: Oh, yes I heard Thelma on a superb per- 
formance in the Dunston Hall of Fame in New York 
city. Samuel Dunston is proprietor. He has Marjorie 
Forte, Ethel Ford and Sarah Gibson working with him. 
Eva Nell Sanders and Lena Duncan are joint pro- 
prietors of THE SANDERS-DUNCAN ATHLETIC 
CLUB in. New York. Ruth High and Lydia Utley are 
supervising physical therapy in this club. James A. 
Jones, Frank Terrell and Sydney Smith are also on the 
staff. 

Vida: Did you read where James Clark was inaugu- 
rated as president of Cornell University? Robert Robin- 
son is Dean of the School of Law and Lela Amons is 
on the supervising committee in the School of Ele- 
mentary Education. Helen McClamb is Dean of the 
School of Business. Roberta Hinton, Ruby Moses and 
Clyde Terrell are on the teaching staff. 

Wade: Mamie Reynolds is traveling with the Art 
Designers, Inc. I saw her in Topeka, Kansas, while I 
was visiting J. B. Small and Shirley Addison. They are 
married and J. B. owns a Veternarian Hospital there. 
He has George Brown and Bessie Barco working on his 
staff. Vivian Mackey, Mary Evelyn Peay, and Jeannette 
Moore are doing research at the Smith Labratory in 
Witchita, Kansas. Ruvel Smith owns this place. Ger- 
trude Holden and Gladys Jiles have permanent jobs 
there. 

Vida: The class of '56 is really making its contri- 
bution to the world. George Johnson, who has received 
his Ph.D. in French is president at Mdidlebury College 
now. Willie Newell is Dean of Instructions. Goldie 
Buffaloe and Barbara Parker are in charge of Leach's 
School for Elementary Education Trainees in Detroit. 
Sarah Lou Leach, who has her Ph.D., is founder and 
president. She makes frequent trips to Florida to visit 
her beloved husband. Julia Bryant is Registrar at this 
school. 

Wade: Had you heard that Samuel Browne is Bishop 
of the Diocese of South Florida? 

Vida: I certainly had. Ilene wrote and told me when 
he was ordained. Speaking of Florida, Randolph Miller 
recently bought a resort in Key West. Goldie Thomas 
is his private secretary. George Scott is a practicing 
physician down there. Did you hear that John McRae is 
Dean of the School of Social Work in Atlanta at the 
University? Ronald Washington is Director of Recre- 
ation in the city of Atlanta. He certainly has done 
wonderful. 

Wade: Speaking of Tony, what ever happend to 
Donald Young? 

Vida: Why, Donald Young is working with the 
Naval Orthopedic Division. He recently toured the 
world. He appeared once on the THIS IS YOUR 
LIFE, show. 



Wade: We have talked of everybody, but where is 
Shirley Cherry? 

Vida: Shirley y Cherry, after receiving her Ph.D. in 
Art Designing, is directing a models school in Baltimore. 
She fashions sometimes on these world tours. She is 
married now and is making her home in Baltimore. I 
met Alma Taylor there. She owns a cosmetologist 
school. Gloria Brown is her assistant. 

Wade: When you mentioned Gloria, it made me 
think of Dorothy Frizzell. She is a lecturer for the 
American Friends Association. Her home is in Connecti- 
cut. Oh yes, Helen McDowell is supervisor of the New 
Haven Hospital. Joseph Carter was a patient there after 
fracturing his knee in this game between Army and 
Navy. He plays for the Army Team. 

Vida: I read about the wonderful record Joseph 
Carter has made. I saw him about ten years ago in 
Miami, Florida. He was in the MAGGIE GREENE 
HOSPITAL at that time. By the way, Howard Todd is 
training the Navy team. Catherine Moye is a Medical 
Social Worker and Doris Jones is a Psychiatric Social 
Worker in Jacksonville, Florida. 

Wade: Oh, yes, Lillie Weston was crowned as the 
Most Outstanding Woman of the Year by Woman's 
Home Journal last year. Annie Ruth Monk is Editor 
of this magazine. Delois Thomas is secretary to the 
President of the United States. She had a job offered 
to her in Washington before her graduation you know, 
and now she has worked up to this position. 

Vida: I was really happy for her when I read about 
it. Lois Jones is Director of Physical Education at 
Howard LIniversity. 

Wade: Yes, Yes. Just look at the progress the Class 
of '56 has made in twenty-five years. 

Vida: It is quite remarkable, isn't it? What have you 
done for yourself? 

Wade: Well, nothing much in comparison to what 
some have done. I am an attorney in Berkeley, Cali- 
fornia. At present, I am enroute to St. Augustine's 
LIniversity to deliver the commencement address after 
twenty-five years. What have you done? 

Vida: I have been touring the United States and 
Canada giving a series of lectures for the American 
Federation of Women. And I am also enroute to "dear 
old St. Aug." to attend my son's graduation. Just think 
twenty-five years ago today, we were preparing to 
march down the aisles of St. Augustine's College to 
receive our Bachelors. How time passes! (And so it 
ends. The Class of 1956 has taken its rightful place in 
this dynamic world.)
