You Should Hear Our Faculty Say-
"Now Don't you see "
"There's no question about it "
"I goes to New York and I comes to St. Aug. and
I flunks "
"Quit, Children "
"I don't intend to be dogmatic but ''
"I won't call any names but you take Miss or
"Quite true, quite true. I must confess "
"This class begins at 9:30 not 9:29 or 9:31...._"
"1 advise you to read chapters and "
"Well that's right but but you didn't siy
"Goodspeed has dust on it."
"Do your daily work daily."
"Mr. or Miss There's such a thing as talking
and saying nothing."
"Common sense should rescue you by now"
"What think ye of this question?"
"But girls you just wouldn't understand."
( *n a ylodiiiy, rainy JSepteiiiber day in
1I;I3,S, 102 eager individuals made tlieir
first apparaiiee at St. Augustine's and
^verl■ destined to become the Class of
"42". This versatile grou]) rejiresenteil
The customary freshman initiation
was ailministered on the second day of
our arri\;d. with the "Dogs" giving the
upiierclassmen jtlenty of tronl)le and
competition. During the first week a re-
ception was given each night by some
organization to make the freshmen feel
at home and that they miglit become
acquainted with the different individu-
One month after our arrival, Frances
Johnson, President <if the Student Coii-
ncil called for our first official class
meeting, and the following election of
officers took place: Philip Sellers, presi-
dent; Purdie Anders, Secretary; -Jean
Massey, Assistant Secretary; and ^liss
C. Perkins, Treasurer.
Earger to get the most out of college,
we soon made our presence known
through various achievements and par-
ticijiations in different extra-curricular
activities. We were represented in the
Clioral Club, Choir, Dramatic Club.
Football, Tennis, Basketball and many
After the class had weathered the
stoi'ni for one year, we could look back
and say, "Well Done". Our president.
Mr, Sellers, won the Omega Psi award
for exemplifying manhood, scholarship,
uplift and perservation.
William Young won the Phi P>eta
Signui awai'd for the best scholarship
record during the year. Frances ilary
Jilavo won the annual ]n'ize of $10.00 for
eai'ning the highest scholarsliip average
in General P)iology. Thomas Harris was
chosen most Handsome yoinig nnin on
The class was guided in our Sojiho-
<nore year by Mr. Johnnie Hort(ni. The
class had been greatly reduced, as only
(iO of the 102 returned. The first im-
portant job was to prove to the incoming
freshman class that the Class of "42"
was it's .superior. It took ;is a long tijue
to get over the loss of our friend Glad-
stone E. Abisdid who liad proved in the
previous year that In^ was always a
friend in "need."
At the end of our second year iliss
3[ayo won an award for excellence in
The cla.ss wa.s guided in oui- -luiiior
year again by Mr. Horton as President,
Andrew Allen, Vice President and Pur-
die Aiulers as Secretary. This was tiie
year in which we were t(.) prt)ve our
worth. After all the members had re-
turned, full of vigor and vitality, we
found that we had lost only four stu-
dents. We were going t(j start out at the
beginning- and show everyone now that
the Class of "42" was indeed a great
class, but the class suffered greatly from
internal disorder. However, the class put
forth a great effort at the last moment
to sponsoi- a wonderful and enjoyable
Junior-Senior Prom. At the end of the
term, the marks showed that many of
the Juniors had gained places on the
hd.Kir I'oll. Election of officers for the
incomino- ypav was held at the end of the
year with Lisle Gillman being elected
))resident ; Maurice Curtis, Vice-Presi-
dent: Purdie Anders for the fourth veav
as Secrtary : Jolmnie Horton, Pi-esident
of the Student Council and Dirtctor of
the P>i'otherhood ; President Gillman Avas
also elected in-esident of the Acies Club
for the second year, and editor-in-chief
of the Pen: Andrew Allen, President of
the Chancelhn-s Club; ^Miss >[ayo. Pres-
ident of the Zeta Sigma Rho Society:
Joseph LeCompte and Philip Sellers,
Co-Captain of the football team.
We entered our senior year with a
feeling of Joy and Sadness. We were
joyful because we were about to enter
a new era of life for which we had so
diligently prepared, and we were sad
because we were alxnit to leav<> dear
I'riends who had beediue a part of our
lives. Of the 4(i. 39 of us liad marehed

team Despite it's many errors aud othei-
faults, the class of "4'2-' has made a
defiuite contributiou to St. Auuustiue s
Colleoe. It has furnished the nucleus ot

Xow at our last step we look back at
,nir jia^t achievements. It was a hard
and rou-li road but there was .joy and
pleasure in conqueriu-' tlie obstacles

xvben thinus went wrong' and harsh
words were spoken, we knew withni our
heart that we loved every member of

I'nalterable our aim,
Tliat in this year of greatest need
We ^\ill keep lirii^ht tlie flame.
The flame of kimwledge
That was lit
Witliiii these lioiKired walls,
Tlie truth, the beauty we have learned
In St. Auji-u.stine's halls.
In cap and g-own
(^ni' scroll we take —
May it an emblem be.
In the long years that lie ahead
"We've not forgotten thee.
We fai/e to-day
A saddened woi-ld.
Demoeraey's great war
Has made our burden heavier far,
Tlian for those who've gone before.
"We strive, we pray.
We seek, we fiiuL
We will be strong and true —
That the world will not foriret
The class of fortv-two.

"May I speak to Doi-is, please?"
'■How are you ?— Fine— That is inst
p-raiid. 1 am imw workinii with the U.
S. (). laiiil army and during the eoin-s?
of my travels, T have met practically all
of the members of the class of '42 or
someone who knew sometliini;' ahont
■'What? When did 1 arrive in New
York? Why last ni-iit. Please j;et a cliaii-
because when 1 izet throu<;'h you will
need a support."
"I went thronsih ypeneer. North Car-
olina about three days ago and imagine
mv surju'lse when I stopped at a huge
dairy belonging to Leroy Clement. Such
butter, eggs and milk— to say nothing of
the cheese — you've never seen. He has
also discovered a way with the aid of
Tnlnla Parker who is his laboratory
technician, to separate onions from milk
without pastnrizing it. No. he isn't mar-
ried — "
"But I'll tell yon who is married —
Georgette Green. She has marrieil Dr.
Bond and the little one is a miniature
of him. Oh, ijicidently Olvette Hall has
actually married Gi-aham Cathey — Yes,
they are living in Winston-Salem and
the proprietors of ' ;'The Elite Xight
Club." That is jiostively the finest club
in Winston-Salem. You should see it!"
"By the way, did you read about your
three classmates? Who? Why Bob
Clark, "Tex" Allen and Sellers — they
won honorary medals for having bombed
military ob.jectives near Berlin success-
fully 1 Since I am talking abo^it the war.
Curtis is Brigadier General in the army.
;\Iy Dear, he has so nmuy medals he looks
like a sixteen hundred knighl. You
can't see poor "Curt" for the medals'.
"Pardon this rambling — but I .just
must tell you everthing about evei-ybody
as it pops into my head. I stopped by
Saint Augustine's and guess who the
college physician is? Tommy Harris! He
has taken Dr. Perry's place, ily how
time changes everything. You really
woudn't know the place. Mildred Fan-
cher is Dean of Women and Piu'die And-
ers is president!" Do you reali/.e it has
been ten years since we left ihere? The
war had ,iust begun."
"On my way to the citv, 1 stojiped at
the nation's capitol and saw Hattie Jer-
kins. She has a very fine "Job" as a
messenger for the war departnuuit. She
is doing fine because she delivers by
word of month and no spy can under-
stand it. "Jerk" informed me that A'el-
ma is working on her Phi), at the T'ni-
versity of Wisconsin. Anil what is she
getting it in? Rural Sociology!"
"Joe Boo])" is coach at Howard and
he told me that Frances :Mayo is teach-
ing French and music at :\Iinor's Teach-
ers College. She has had her PhD. for
T came as far as Philly with Dorothy
Racks. She was on her way back to At-
lantic City after attending a Social Ser-
vice Conference in Washington. For
recreation, she is teaching Bible at the
"Y". She informed me that Thomascine
Williamston is a dress designer and
seamstress in .Montana. She is indeed
talented. Dotty says that is something
in this day. It is actually a miracle."
"I had dinner in Philly at Harriet
Washingtf/n and Alice Parker's "Chick-
en Shack" on Ridge A\enue, They cook
the loveliest greens — as you know they
always could. I passed a barber shop on
Soutii St. and who do you suppose was
the owner? None othei' than John Haw-
kins! And he is actually bald!"
I took the :i:2<) out of i'hilly ,-nid Wal-
ter West was redcapping at the station.
Y(ni know he was too snuill to get into
the army. This morning 1 went over to
Lincoln training school to see some of
my co-workei-s and whom do you tliink
is one of the head nureses ? Elizabeth
Amos — and she looked (luite trim in her
uniform. As you know Holly has gone
to the front and poor Bertha Liitie de-
cided to take up nursing in liopes that
she may uvt a eliam-e to he seiit to tlie
front too and perhaps to be near him.
Well, I almost forii'ot Floivnee Simp-
kins. I saw her ab:)Ut a montli aj;() in
"Cattish"', .South Carolina, while there
on duty. She is principal, teacher, recre
ation directress and ration snpei'\ i.>"v
She is about the size of Evelyn Wriylit.
What is Evelyn doing? My dear, she has
been divorced abcuit three times and she
has decided to ^ive up the matrimonal
side of life. She is at present a volunteer
Red Cross AVorker."
■'1 almost for<;-ot to tell you, Ella .Mae
Williams is principal of Washin^tcm
Hig-h and Hypathia Saunders is head of
the History department there."
" I suppose you know Johnny is editor
of the "Afro" and Richard iVIcClelland
is foreign correspondent for the same
paper. Did you see Carmclita's play
"The Bidl Delves Into Politics" at the
Summer theatre in Hartford? Well, that
play is on Broadway and is a whale of
a success. Remember how onr English
teacher said she was going places .' And
Larkin King is dancing at the Para-
mount this week. 'Sly Dear, he is actually
in the limelight. He is practically
another Bojangles! Is there anyone I
have not mentioned ? Who ? Oh yes Lisle
Gilman. Well, lie went back to Trinadad
and at present is a doctor there.
I'xe told you about everybody else —
what in the world are you doing? So
you went back to Lincoln Nursing
School — and are now head nurse at
Hartford Hospital? How grand!!

An Anonymous Poem
dear friends four vears a;i(i I went t(i sea
on tlie good sliii) ni' learning'
i would not go again yon bet
and get my brain to chnrning
tlie elassmates were all horror strnek
\vhen pirates swarnn-'d our de^-ks
tex alien shouted not to tear
till they were right on nnr neeks
the pirates t-ame up fieree and bold
with cutlasses and sabers
sellers and leeompte eould'nt keeji tlieuj
despite athletic labors
dotty racks cooly arose
took out a can of powder
applied it to her nose
whereat the crowd spoke louder
flo sindvins put ujjon hei- feet
her dainty little shoes
and anna pearl very scaied
began to sing the blues
harriet Washington ciipd let's start a
of our beloved ijinochle
georgette green agreed tu it
with many a hearty chuckle
frances mayo came
and gazed with great sad brown eyes
while jjirates trussed up bi-ave evans
to hei- supreme sur|n'ise
then evelyn wriglit <-anie almig
a-pleadmg with those \-illiaiis
oh talve our gold but go away
and leave alone us chilinn-;
well she gut results at once
evans quickly A\as luidmic
those wicked ]ni-ates on tlic sliip
to evelyn 's side wei'e won
then bessie anios began
to cnt U]i her cute cai)ei-s
she shouted to the ])ir;ite chief
huh, go peddle your ]iapers
in came just then to the salon
one hattie jerkins flurried
and close upon her twiiddiiig heels
flirtatious purdy hurried
the pirate chief accuses him of
flirting twas quite outrageo\is
hiuiter satterwhite then shoiUed loud
a jury trial let's stage us
they called the whole class to the room
lai'kin king was the judge
the pirates were tlu' jur\' iiumi
for from their views thy would "nt bud'je
the class then s])oke their minds
about this perilous affaii-
some wished to stop the trial at once
and some just didn't care
so purily ro.se to plead his case
with hands deep within his pockets
his speech was sharjily broken by
bertha little's c\U i-a i-acket
dien tall jonny horton got n|) to leave
this most u!u-ourtly court
bat up and coming tommy
williamston stt)ppe(l him short
before they luid a chance to sjieak
some ]urates in them sank
their talon fingers yanked them up
and made them walk the jjlank
then mihired fancher g(.t up and said
you mean old jiirates you
already three of us are gone
what more do you jdan to do
velma mceweu then strode forth
to say her say ipiite tlirough
then came a liail and a parker
they were likewise tlir<iwn in too
when leroy clement warbh^d loud
in his rich throaty teiioi-
the i^irates said that he must go too
he really hatln't a choice
ella mae williams then arose
to take the witness stainl
delaine and flora iiiles
surrounded her in band
if y(ju throw us into the sea
as shredded wheal I'oi' sharks
before Ave go let's lia\'e just
one more ol' oiu' college larks
this angered so the |)irates hold
that they heaved the crow<l en masse
and made fm- sliai'k^ a In'calcfast food
of that illustrious class
the shark that swallowed liypath.i sand-
felt just like Jonah's whale
when she in ocean's curri'nt read
that day's current event tale
doris peters taught her shark
to roll around his e\'es
and carmelita iierkins fish can paint
the charm of a fail' sunrise
frances mayo's shark is spouting ffjrth
his literal french translations
John hawkins is (pielliug all
the chemic conflagrations
those 1942 sharks
procession most entrancing
matle in king neptnue's watery way
where salty waves were dancing
v.ell friends tlie sharks are now the best
of educated fisli
the hope that i may ecpial them
is now my only wish
