AS on evidence of the high esteem in which he was
held, and proof of the reverence with which we regard
his memory, and as an expression of our appreciation
for all he has done for us, we dedicate this first volume
of "Le Cheval" to the late Rev. A. B. Hunter, D.D.
TV W ANY colleges issue an annual publication of the graduating class portraying
iVl the activities of each individual member during his stay under the wings
of Alma Mater. This attempt is the first of the classes graduating from the stand-
ard four year college course of St. Augustine's.
We are conscious of the errors, both in arrangement and material, that follow,
hut trust that they will he looked upon as errors of omission and not ot comrmss.on.
Our zeal and earnestness in creating a new spirit of good will toward our Alma
Mater in all previous graduates and former students in the sixty-seven years
of the history of the institution is our primary purpose.
The desire to express gratitude and appreciation of the services of those who have
either materiallv or spiritually aided us in our sincere endeavor is paramount. 1 he

tive improvements gradually is our criterion.
We acknowledge with thanks and gratitude the financial aid of the advertisers

A MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN
To the Class of 1934 :
You have for a brief period, a very important peri oil of your life, been under (he fostering care of
this institution your Alma Mater; and "believe it or not," your welfare, physical, intellectual, moral and
spiritual has rested heavily on the hearts of your instructors,
You are about to emerge into a larger life of responsibility and trust in the great world beyond the
walls of the institution which has thus far borne much of your responsibility.
As you go forth. 1 urge you to carry the following view of life witli you:
From Milbou : "Nor love thy life nor hate, but whilst thou livst Live well; how long, how short, permit
Your teacher and friend.
Chas. H, Boyek, Dean.
As editor of this the first graduating <das^ annual in the history of St. Augustine's College, 1 wish
to take this opportunity of expressing my sincere appreciation of and heartiest gratitude for the wonderful
cooperation given by the whole senior class, faculty, and other classes. And to fellow members of my
staff I wish to humbly offer my thanks for the great support they have given me throughout. Needless
to say without the full support and cooperation of all mentioned it would have been practically impossible
to put this annual over.
Though hampered by financial difficulties and lack of precedent I have attempted to make this small
effort worthy of the name of '34's Class Annual. And though not as extensive as it might he I have at-
tempted to embody those features which seemed most cordial to a souvenir of this type and may it ever
serve to bring back fond memories of the glorious undergraduate days at dear ole' St. Augustine's.

To render service and subdue our fears.

And starts our feet upon the path to fame

It is not given to reach the highest aim
Or outward vestige of a fair success,
Still shall our reward he not the less

THE history of the class of nineteen hundred and thirty-four of Saint Augustine's College,
City of Raleigh, County of Wake, State of North Carolina is this wise:
In the month of September in the year of nineteen hundred and thirty there entered upon
these grounds about eighty young men and young women who said that they came in search
They hailed from the various parts of the world from the Sunny Southland, from the
mountainous regions of New England, the rolling billows of the Atlantic, and the sweltering
sun of the West Indies. Xot all of these seekers of knowledge were in new surroundings
for several of them were escapees of the School of Dean Lynch. Therefore organization of
these young freshmen was not a great task. They organized themselves so that they might
gain strength and had as their leader Earl Alston.
Full of zeal and courage they at once became active in student activities — showing their
capabilities as politicians and noble leaders. The young men organized the Aeies Club so
as to instill into the minds of other students, "The Power of Vision." Toward the end
of the year the class of nineteen hundred and thirty-four planned for the orientation of the
Alas — at the beginning of their second year a few had dropped out and lagged behind.
They found themselves under their same leader who brought them through the warfares of.
that mighty freshman year. As a decreasing host, they found themselves strong and a solid
unit. To this day they will remember the Freshman-Sophomore Football Classic, in which
their solid unity was unending.
As these seekers of knowledge entered the third year of their warfare they found them-
selves decreasing but gaining more strength and courage. To this happy hand were added
two studious young ladies, Doris Telfair and Alice Perry.
This year brought the change of leadership to Lloyd Davis, who is now full of zeal and
struggling to the end. During this year we find the class has played an important role in the
campus life. Most of the organizations had members of this zealous class as their leaders.
We find them in the following activities — St. Augustine's I'm, Ferguson Club, Dramatic Club,
Choral Club, Varsity Basketball and Football and College Student Organization.
Toward the end of the year these seekers of knowledge decided to entertain the graduating
class. This was given in the form of a Garden Party, which delighted the hearts of the
As time drifted slowly onward we find these seekers of knowledge landing their anchor in
the fourth year of their college warfare. This host full of courage had decreased to the
number of thirty-three and we find them still waging their warfare.
The young women of this class organized themselves into the Delta Sigma Nil Society
and had as their aims — Dignity, Sociability, and Neatness. They regret to leave lint wish
that the society might linger on.
The first annual of the college was forwarded by this class of seekers of knowledge. This
Annual was a way of expressing their love and devotion id' St. Augustine's, and that they
never wanted to be forgotten. Now we find that out of that host of eighty that thirty-three
of the Juniors remain and are now hoping to depart. And in looking over the courses taken
we find seven in the Science Department and twenty-six in the Arts Department.
And now for four years the class of nineteen hundred and thirty-four has roamed these
"rounds and sought to get the knowledge for which it came in search. Now it must depart
into the various parts of the world to show. "In Veritate Victoria."
Clara M. Jacksox, Historian.
PROPHECY FOR THE SENIOR CLASS
THE class of 1934, being no exception to other college classes, in their bold and daring as-
sumption that the class has every type of genius, with all confidence, nine attempts to make
easily possible whal has heretofore been impossible, and spreads before your eager eyes the
wondrous panorama of thai which lias never been seen — the future.
Just 10 prove the undeniable powers of this stage or savant who knows very little about any-
thing and practically everything about nothing, you may look as tar into the future as you wish.
Well, since you are just a mere mortal and not a member of I he class of 1934 you probably
can only see as far as 1940.
The problem of reducing or increasing distance in a minimum of time was almost most easily
solved by this dynamic group. Heboid them then in six short non-existent years, starting out.
situated in every conceivable place.
On the morning of May 1. 1940 thirty-three of this nation's most learned, talented and
cultured men and women find a letter from the Registrar, Ora Maim at St. Augustine's.
The letters state that the wish of the administration is to honor the greatest class in the
history of the college at the commencement of 1940.
In New York, Howard Henderson, whose orchestra was making a howling success and
creating a screeching sensation, or so the critics said, walked into a very modern establishment
displaying an arresting sign. "A Princely Haircut and a Close Shave." Manager Prince
Simmons rushed up to ascertain if Henderson were going back to the reunion.
They decided to round up all the classmates in the big city and to plan the trip together.
Having had no breakfast they went to Bond's "Coffee Shop" where that artist of the kitchen
served the world's best breakfast on the shortest possible notice. After six years Bond was
really homesick for bis old haunt. Before leaving the cafe the boys called up Katie Lou
Haywood, the designer, at her studios at Greenwich Village, tint on learning that she had
an appointment at Hallie Jones' Beauty Parlor, they went there to see her, telling Bond that
they would round up Mildred Smith in her dancing Salon and that they would all meet at
eight at Radio City to see Doris Telfair act in a play "Whispered Words" written bv
Meanwhile in Chicago, Editor Earl Alston (even after six years he still handles papers) was
checking a report that Mary Staples was returning from a year's study of music in Europe
and that Lila Taylor, still awed into speechlessness over French, had been in France and was
now returning to America.
Out in Detroit, Annie Stiles executive Secretary of the Y. W. C. A. waited impatiently for
her assistant Janice Albury, to see if they could make the trip together. They planned to go
by way of Pittsburgh where Doctors Creft and Joseph were attracting world-wide attention
for their astonishing treatment for a very dangerous malady, known as "Spring Fever"
most often contracted by students in the heat of the pursuit of a higher education. Mrs.
Creft was none other than Eldora Stevens.
In New Jersey, Philadelphia and Savannah, Charlotte Callaway and Clara Jackson and
Lottie Williams were also upholding the humanitarian spirit of the class by efficient service
in social work.
On this same eventful day, Mrs. Mabel Gray Williams, in Virginia, wrote to Cornelia
Saunders and Owena Haywood that her household duties might prevent her attendance. She
also sent the information that Theodosia Jones, Dean of Women, at Virginia State would
make the trip with Georgia Pugli and Henry Johnson who were going to give a Musicale or
Recital at Virginia State.
On the same day Bishop William Turner almost lost his ecclesiastical dignity in the heartv
welcome he accorded William Paytou who was just back from hunting "Moose" in Africa. He
was on the yacht of Frank Davis who bad taken the same trip to complete his search for
the "missing hook" which St. Augustine's Library would so much appreciate.
In Philadelphia Lloyd Davis is honoring his class and school by his leadership of the United,
Loyal. Progressive and Cooperative Stores. Gene Graves is his publicity agent and every
evening he gets the supreme satisfaction in lift — when lie broadcasts to an audience, numberless.
Anna Gill, Alma Herndon, teachers at Washington High School and Mrs. Nellie Coble, the
proud mother of a promising son Cecil Jr., were on hand to welcome Ida Mackye Allen, Super-
visor of Music at Atlanta University and Miriam I.. Duke, librarian at Atlanta University.
Now here arc all the members of this glorious class, once more together at our Alma Mater.
If looking at them here you cannot believe that they have achieved all that you have seen, just
consider that Class Prophecies are like biscuits: many ingredients go into the making but the
height of the biscuit depends on the amount of "elevating power" used.
Nothing is impossible — to the class of LI34 — in the future.
Miriam Lkoxie Duke.

of mind and body, realizing that our college days are drawing to a close, do take this means of
disposing of some of our treasures which we have laid away in the preceding four years. Realizing the

THE ATHLETIC PARADE
IX retrospective the I!i3:i-:i4 athletic season offers an interesting picture. A variety of feelings are
aroused ns we review the parade. As our warriors pass the reviewing stand \vi> observe mingled
emotions Pathos here ami overwhelming joy over there. But everywhere there is a sharp glint in the
eye that murks a true crusader, one who has given his all in the game, and who counts not the score
but the playing. As an envelope of all the feelings, the showings, the sums of victories, and defeat, we
have a picture of premise, of able, willing and experienced men. This encouragement serves to brighten
the perspective of the reviewer, and we feel, that in the season to come, St. Augustine's Athletic
representative will earn that place in the sum of complete achievement.

to feel the. leather or I.) plow open holes for the "ball-tntcr." When training bit its peak along the

cracked arm. "Red" Perry had forsaken the flanks and was doing signal duty. ".lay Bird" Blount
was showing promise and a bit of running ability. Louis Von Evans had drawn out of the front ranks
and was doing a mean piece of line bucking. Numerous new fellows were trying with varying degrees
of success. Everybody was working hard and the grid squad looked good from the "grandstand."
Then came October 7 and the Blue and White took the held looking like a million bucks and full of tire
Kittrell College was game and fought the horses all of the way but a 7-6 count gave St. Augustine's one
point margin and its first victory.
In the Thanksgiving Classic the Shaw University grid squad turned the tables on a Saint team thai
lacked everything, punch, tight, coordination ami all the other essentials of a good football squad. The
Saints were humbled 13-6 in the concluding gam.' of the season.
As we go back to the Basketball season we find virtually the same pattern. Heart breaking d, deals
accompanied by startling victories. But the learn looked good throughout the season. Anion- the
most interesting of the games was the St. Paul game, which was neck and neck until the whistle. In
this contest the Saint*, emerged the victor with the count 59-56. Another was the Virginia S'tate en-
counter where St Augustine's came up on the long end of a 33-32 score. This game was a real scrap
and the tension of the gallery was relieved only once when "Busty" Blunt brought the stands to their
feet by a R'ring shot from the center of the huge State cage. Three classic games with Shaw provided
thrillers. The Saints took the first in their own pen 30-29 but dropped the other two — one at Shaw and
tip. other in the City Auditorium. In other court games the St. Augustine tossers showed up well losing
and winning with the ease of true sportsmen anil deporting themselves creditably. In the other games:
S*t. Augustine took one from Winston-Sa'.eni Teachers' Coll,--,, to the tune of 37-23. The loeal quint
bow,,; to Virginia State en tin- home court 24-lfi. They lost to Henderson in a good smif — 32-28. Smith
tool; the Saints for a rid? twice. 41-23 was the first score and 41-39 was the final score of the series.
In the Shaw gymn the St Augustine hasketeers dropped the second of the Shaw series 30-27. Union
topped the Saints twice during the season. 26-20 was the first count and tin' whistle found the score
38-17 in tile second scrap. St. Paul avenged its earlier defeats as they took the Saints in 31-15 on their
home lot. To conclude the first C. I. A A. season for St. Augustine the boys played a thriller in the
City Auditorium against their arch rivals, the Shaw Cagers. Each team bad one victory under the belt
and each was out for blood, A thrilling contest that wast decided in the last 15 seconds, with a beautiful
field goal. Williams brought the game to a close, with Shaw leading 19-17.
The tennis team composed of Hubert Creft, Leroy Perry. John Jones anil Lemuel Graves, Jr., is
looking forward to a few dual matches anil lite C. I. A. A. Tournament at A. and T. in Greensboro.
The team is fairly good and hopes to achieve something before school closes.
The track team is concentrating on the C. I. A. A. track meet at Howard. Captain Arnold .1 pli
Rozii Sineletary. Eric Clarke. Raphael Mi'lin and Frank St, -wart nun all gel a chance to compete
in tin- cinder path's events. Russell Blunt is trying lor one field event, the shot-put.
And as we come to the end of the parade, as the athletes pass in review and go on to the pursuit of
prowess, achievement, or honor, or what have you.' We find the picture interesting and encouraging and
indicative of greater athletic endeavor and accomplishments by the representatives of St. Augustine.
