FOREWORD 



The "1959 Falcon" sums up in brief, 
if not entirely, four unforgettable years 
of studying and living at what has been 
called "The Big Family School." You will 
cherish the memories of these years for 
the remainder of your life. 




It is hoped that, as you peruse these 
pages, you will relive happily the past. If 
this is possible, then our efforts will not 
hove been spent in vain. 



Courage and perseverance have been 
a magical talisman by which many of our 
difficulties have disappeared and our ob- 
stacles hove vanished into the air. 

Richard Lacey

DEDICATION 



To you, Mr. Taylor, we the members of the 1959 graduating 
class proudly dedicate the '59 edition of the Falcon. 

Many years from now when we take a retrospective view of 
our years spent here at St. Augustine's, there will always be many 
events and people that will come to our minds. You are one of 
those persons. Our four years here hove not been wasted. We have 
had many memories and experiences— some pleasant, some not 
so pleasant, but in spite of this we remember you. 

This yearbook is a condensation of our thoughts, deeds, and 
efforts We consider it to be the fruits of our labor, our most prized 
possession Although we offer to you what we consider our best, 
it is very insignificant in comparison to the love and service you 
have so graciously rendered to our "Dear Ole Alma Mater . 

Because many years, experiences, and tremendous efforts, as 
well as labor, have gone into the formation of this book, we dedi- 
cate it to you in appreciation of your many unselfish efforts ren- 
dered over many years. 

We really appreciate your every endeavor to encourage, stim- 
ulate and guide us to achieve greater heights, and you shall 
always be to us a personality whom we shall try to emulate. 

May the beacon light of God's many blessings be focused 
upon you, and may health and happiness always be yours.

Dear Senior Class: 

Please accept my sincere congratulations as 
you prepare to join the ranks of many loyal 
Alumni of Saint Augustine's College. You have 
wrought well! You have undergone spiritual, in- 
tellectual, and physical training. The Faculty 
and Staff have striven to inculcate in you those 
high ideals of Christian education that are so 
indispensable to the well-rounded citizen. 

Keep ever before you the "Two Great Com- 
mandments." ; ^ - 



Best wishes. 



Very truly yours.

DEAN'S MESSAGE 

To the Members of the Class of 1959 

I wish to commend you for your efforts for 
'bringing into fruition this excellent yearbook. 
I am sure that the hardships and sacrifices 
encountered or the fellowship established in 
reaching this goal will all in the end tend to 
make you a more worthwhile contributing 
member of our society. 

As you leove these hallowed walls of Saint 
Augustine's, I hope you will carry with you 
renewed vigor and a greater determination to 
uphold her high ideals and help extend the 
frontiers of knowledge. Remember, too, your 
Alma Mater needs your support — both moral 
' and financial. Don't wait to get rich to help 
her, but as you become increasingly able, 
remember that Saint Augustine's got you 
started along the way. 
Best wishes. ^->. 



/Prezell R. Robinson, Dean

CLASS HISTORY 



On September 13, 1955, 138 proud, but 
mature young men and women registered 
at Saint Augustine's College as Freshmen. 
Like freshmen usually are, green is exactly 
what these freshmen were not. We adjusted 
ourselves gracefully and quickly. As the 
year began to move onward, we advanced 
accordingly. Class officers elected to lead us 
were; President, Robert Royster; Vice-Pres- 
ident, Jacquelyn Johnson; Secretary, Poca- 
hontas Jones; Assistant Secretary, Jane 
Blakely; and Treasurer, William Woods. 
Chosen to represent us at Homecoming and 
other similar events during the year were 
Yvonne Hart and Jane Blakely, Miss Fresh- 
man and the freshman attendant to Miss 
Homecoming. 

Thelma Becton, Stafford Sweeting, and 
George Flemming represented us on the 
Student Council. Freshmen in the dramatics 
club who made outstanding performances 
were Patricia Briscoe, Richard Lacey, and 
Theodore Catchings. We gave to the choir, 
Arline Tilley, Jane Blakely, Helen Braxton, 
Mary Williams, Jacquelyn Johnson, Gladys 
Ford, Joseph Gray, Walter Gilford, Theo- 
dore Catchings, Richard Lacey and Marlon 
Poitier. Never could we leave out those who 
represented us so well in sports. In football, 
Jesse Lucious, Mark Harvey, Freddie Davis, 
Joseph McNeil, and Lester Spease. In bas- 
ketball, Albert Stirrup, Robert Hicks and 
Freddie Davis. A number of us pledged sor- 
orities and fraternities our second semester. 
With our class being well represented on 
the dean's list both semesters, the door of 
our freshman year closed quietly. 

With the turning of the leaves in Septem- 
ber 1956, we returned as Sophomores. As 
always happens, we lost some members but 
gained others to replace them. We started 
the year with a bong. Class officers were: 
Stafford Sweeting, Joseph Gray, Pocahon- 
tas Jones, Helen Braxton, and Theodore 
Barnes. Student Council members were Tal- 



modge Hunt, Thelma Becton, and Helene 
Spencer. Again we were well represented in 
all phases of sports and the college choir. 
Patricia Briscoe was chosen "Miss Sopho- 
more Class", attended by Thelma Becton 
and Opal Boyd. Mildred Tetterton was 
Sophomore attendant to Miss St. Augus- 
tine's. Also to be recognized is Yvonne Hart 
who was chosen Sweetheart of Omega Psi 
Phi Fraternity. As the year passed on, we 
didn't seem to mind because we were ex- 
cited and anxious to see what it would be 
like to be Juniors. As the summer passed, 
and September 1957 finally arrived, we re- 
turned to Dear Ole St. Augustine's. Again 
we lost and gained some classmates. Mak- 
ing this adjustment, we progressed rapidly. 
This was to be one of our best years. We 
started the year off under the leadership of 
our capable officers, Joseph Gray, Theodore 
Barnes, Helene Spencer, Pocahontas Jones, 
and Stafford Sweeting. We had big plans in 
mind with the Junior-Senior prom coming 
up as the main event. Homecoming was 
again a gala event. Juniors who took special 
part in the activities besides the members 
of our class on the football team were Ann 
Wilson, Miss Junior Class attended by Lena 
McLean, Barbara Ellis, and Edwinna Wil- 
son. Yvonne Hart was again chosen Miss 
Omega Psi Phi and Pocahontas Jones, Miss 
Alpha Phi Alpha. Other interesting feat- 
ures during the year included the annual 
meeting of the North Carolina Student Edu- 
cation Association at which two of our very 
own were chosen President and Secretary. 
They were George Flemming and Helene 
Spencer, respectively. Honor Societies any- 
one: Our class was well represented. Theo- 
dore Barnes, Thelma Becton, Joseph Gray, 
and Delores Rogers were initiated into 
Alpha Kappa Mu Honor Society. Into Beta 
Kappa Chi were Joseph Gray. Clinton Dug- 
ger and Harriet Malone were initiated into 
Sigma Rho Sigma, and Jane Blakely, Hel-

CLASS HISTORY 



ene Braxton, Gladys Ford, Walter Gilford, 
and Delores Rogers were intiated into Phi 
Kappa Alpha. Mary Burnette and J. Ken- 
neth Major, Jr., represented us at the North 
Carolina Student Legislature Assembly. 
The Junior-Senior prom climaxed our year, 
and surely it was not one that will be soon 
forgotten. With so much excitement, the 
year soon ended, and we were slowly near- 
ing our goal. Expectantly, we awaited our 
return in September 1958. As was expected, 
the summer seemed to pass slowly because 
we were so anxious to return. Quite a few 
of us were lucky enough to work together 
during the summer, but the old familiar 
excitement of seeing each other was still 
in the air when we returned as sophisticated 
seniors. Right away, the class started work, 
led by Joseph Gray, Theodore Barnes, 
Helene Spencer, Thelma Becton, and Mar- 
lon Poitier as editors, and George Flemming 
as Business Manager. Again at Homecom- 
ing we were represented everywhere. 
Charles Boler was captain of the 1958-59 
FALCONS. Others on the football team 
were Mark Harvey, Joseph McNeil, Fred- 
die Davis, Jesse Lucious, Marion Brown, 
Lester Spease, and Albert Huey. Pocahon- 
tas Jones reigned beautifully as Miss Saint 
Augustine's. As the floats passed, seniors 
were everywhere. On the senior class float 
were Arline Til ley, Dorothy Cooke and Har- 
riet Malone. On the Omega-Delta float were 
Yvonne Hart and Thelma Becton, and on 
the Alpha-AKA float rode Helene Spencer 
and Barbara Thomas. The choir toured the 
southern belt, all the way to Miami, Florida. 
Seniors attending were Gladys Ford, Bar- 
bara Thomas, Jane Blakely, Harriet Ma- 
lone, Mary Williams, Helen Braxton, Irene 
Hill, Wanda Copeland, Joseph Gray, Theo- 
dore Catchings, Walter Gilford, Richard 
Lacey, and Marlon Poitier. Helene Spencer 
reigned as May Queen with senior attend- 
ants Jane Blakely and Naomi Crandol. Ben- 



jamin Redmond did a wonderful job of 
keeping us well informed of the news. He 
was Editor of THE PEN, our school paper. 
Catherine Arline was chosen to represent 
our class at the Student Legislature. Theo- 
dore Barnes, Joseph Gray, Clinton Dugger, 
Mary Burnette, Harriet Malone, Barbara 
Thomas and Robert Taylor were inducted 
into Who's Who in American Colleges and 
Universities. 

At prom time, our own Miss Senior Class, 
Arline Tilley and attendants Thelma Bec- 
ton, Dorothy Cooke, and Harriet Malone 
took a bow. The leadership in our class was 
outstanding in all respects and all organi- 
zations. These are just a few of the organi- 
zations that had senior presidents: 
Student Council Clinton Dugger 

College Choir Joseph Gray 

Alpha Kappa Mu 

Honor Society Delores Rogers 

Beta Kappa Chi Joseph Gray 

Phi Kappa Alpha Delores Rogers 

Sigma Rho Sigma Clinton Dugger

Big Sister's Club Thelma Becton 

inter-dormitory Council Patricia Briscoe 
N. C. Student N. E. A. George Flemming 
Pan-Hellenic Council Mark Harvey 
Dramatics Club Richard Lacey 

Certainly we are happy to reach our goal, 
but we must say that the four years slipped 
past almost before we had time to realize 
it. We truly hope that we have given to St. 
Augustine's as much as we will take with 
us when we depart from these familiar 
grounds where we got our start in life for 
our individual professions.

A PRAYER FOR GRADUATES 

O Lord of all learners and oil teachers, fountain and source of all wisdom, all 
knowledge and all truth; Grant that being nourished by the healthful spirit of thy 
grace, upon harvest we may yield the same fruits in hundred fold; Make us an in- 
strument of thy love, wisdom, knowledge, and truth; May we in our chosen walks 
of life, serve with all virtue. Grant that in our being instructors, we may instruct 
in the way of truth and beauty; that in our being ministers, we may minister in all 
humility; that in our being doctors, we may doctor in humbleness of heart; that in 
our being nurses, we may nurse in loving kindness and care; and, in our being law- 
yers, we may practice the true laws of all humanity; Bless us in our several callings, 
Oh Father of all professions and humanity. 

And now great teacher and master, grant us wisdom, grant us courage for the 
living of these days; Bless us and guide us as we graduate from school life to life's 
school; Preserve our going out and our coming in from this time forth and for ever- 
more; for the sake of Him who graduated from a life of human quest to a life of 
all and everlasting wisdom, Jesus Christ, thy Son, our Lord. Amen. 

J. Kenneth Major, Jr.

CLASS POEM 

Even if we knew at the time, saying, This 
is a time I will remember, 
It would not be the strong time, the long 
times, not even the 
rattled days, the everything-went- 
wrong-today times. 

It might be much committed, built up big, 
and big bulletin-boarded. 
And still not be the gold time, the have 
and hold, the good old 
told long after, and told, and told, and 
told-again time. 

It's probably the anytime, the many times, 

the time and time again time. 
The no particular time at all and I can't 
remember-when time 
that you'll remember the best, some after- 
ten, now-and-then time. 

Some day a coat recalls, or by the way you 
wore your hair, or trees bare. 
But, not a he and she were there, not a 
who and who was there time, 
a really-care time, and 1 remember- 
exactly-where time. 

The times that we remember longest are 
the times we never knew we knew. 
The in-the-meantimes, the before and 
after teens times, the seen 
and lost, the tick cli^ck quick, the in- 
between times.

with a two-fold purpose utmost in our 
minds. First, that it might sum up, in brief 
if not in entirety, four unforgetcble years — 



years filled with memories that we shall 
cherish for the duration of our lives. Sec- 
ondly, that it might present to us a means 
of reliving the past — in the future.

BASKETBALL TEAM 



It is an old axiom in sports that while building 
around the inexperienced and the young often 
makes the road a bit tougher and longer, never- 
theless if enough talent is present, then the end 
results will prove all the difficulty to be worthwhile. 



That enough patience was used this year is 
evident from the way the coaching staff stayed 
with the youngsters to the game in the roughest 
spots. That enough talent is present in regards to 
the team is evident from some of the bright streaks 
that highlighted the season, such as our two 
victories over Show. The ingredients to moke that 
axiom come true have been found. Next year the 
axiom will be proved to be right

FOOTBALL TEAM 



This year the football picture looked its 
best in quite some time. As Coach Walker 
valiantly attempted to put St. A back on the 
football map and succeeded with a season of 
two losses and six wins, losing only to our old 
rivals Shaw and North Carolina College. 



With an octet of seniors returning and 
engineering the team this was accomplished 
and our hats go off to them — Charles Boler, 
their captain, Jesse Lucious, Mark Harvey, 
Joseph McNeil, Freddie Davis, Lester Spease, 
Albert Huey, and Marion Brown. Mention 
must be made of the ploy calling of Robert 
Bridges and the running of Donald Thompson, 
two juniors, also.

TRACK TEAM 



This years track outlook is o colorful 
one with most of lost years team of both 
the field and track events returning. Last 
season was a fairly successful one for 
the team and with that year of experience 
under their belts nothing but the best 
should evolve this season.
