REV. EDGAR H. GOOLD
Of Thee we sing, dear Alma Mater! To you within whose walls we have spent
these four vears so fraught with laughter and tears, we raise our song! What price-
less gifts have you bestowed upon our heads! Wisdom, truth, humility, honor,
service, lovalty, brotherhood, manhood, womanhood and reverence with which you
have imbued us. seeking to prepare us not for school but for more abundant life.
To the members of the faculty who have struggled so diligently to help us on our
journev. we offer our sincere thanks, and it is to them that we dedicate this book
as an outward and visible sign of an inner and spiritual appreciation for their efforts
which we know at some times seemed to be directed toward a helpless cause. To our
fellow students who have helped to make our book a success, we say "Que dien vous
lienisse."' To all people connected with Dear Saint Augustine's we offer our heartfelt
thanks, and as we go out into the cold, cold world to meet the foe, we give you our
sincere pledge. "We shall not fail; we shall toil and toil with the tools you have
gi\en to us: we shall hold high the torch and finallv emerge victorious over the enemv.
for We Face a .\eir Day oj Problems and Chunf^es: But With Courage."

Here we are on that home stretch, htokiiig back with pride u]3on the ground already covered. Let us reminisce
a bit. Monday. September 20. 1942. was a beautiful sunny day when !U frightened and "green" freshmen entered
St. Augustine's Campus. The first week of initiation sent shivers over us all and started a number of us repacking
our trunks to go back to old familiar places — home. We managed to breast these ills and quicklv entered upon
our studies with zest and heart-ridden ambition. In our second semester, having the feeling of belonging, we or-
ganized our class with .Joseph Saunders. President: Harold Wright. Vice President; Cordelia Blackburn. Secre-
tary; Edith Sands. Assistant Secretary; and Queen Moore. Treasurer. Our student council representatives were
George Sadler and Lucretia Anthonv.
In this same year we represented nearly every extra-curricular acti\itv on the campus. The freshmen girls
organized for the first time the Thomas Building Council under Miss M. L. Fancher. We're even prouder of
ourselves for having been the first Freshman Class to present an assembly program. It was in this year that
Joseph Saunders and Pattie Laws won the prizes for the highest scholastic averages in General Biology. George
Sadler won the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity award and Joseph Saunders the Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity award.
Algie Mayo was awarded the prize for the greatest improvement in Freshman English. Hattie Redden received
the Zeta Sigma Rho Society award. As freshmen, we were well represented academically, socially and also re-
ligiously as we remember our large and steady Sunday s:hool class under Mr. McStallworth.
As the months passed, the war waged on. not sparing our class at all. When we returned as Sophomores,
there were only 38 of us. We began to miss such familiar faces as T. Johnson. E. Williams. M. White. A. L nder-
due. 0. Crump. Muse, Miller. Piper. Anderson, Robinson — all of whom had fallen victims of the draft. To
offset this a bit. we welcomed two new-comers — Catherine Williams from Benedict College and Hilda Lewis, a
former member of St. Augustine's. Our class officers for the year were Harold Wrigiit. President; Xeal Stitt.
Vice President; Pattie Laws. Secretary; and George Sadler, Treasurer. We held up our once-begun representa-
tion in all activities. Remembering the motto, "Climb though the path be rugged," we did not allow any of our
plans to be annihilated. We were destined to excel in all our endeavors. We led the honor roll for the year
and participated in every activity with leading roles.
At the end of the year Neal Stitt won the first prize for e.xcellence in literary composition and Charles
Farrar won second prize in the Du Bignon speaking contest.
Though we were becoming more and more aware of the evils of war. we were carrying on. We returned
for our Junior year in College with the realization that we were living in turbulent times and that we had to work
diligently and keep the faith of those who had departed from our ranks. We tried to elect a strong group of
officers who would lead us in successful channels. Neal Stitt was elected president; Prezell Robinson, vice
president; Richie Sands, secretary; Queen Moore, assistant secretary; Rebie Wilson, treasurer, and Cordelia
Blackburn, chairman of the program committee. Among new members were: Prezell Robinson. Jackson Wheeler,
Mary Wright, Helen Morton, and Minnie Wright.
Many of us made the honor roll and at the beginning of the second semester our plans were taking shape
for the Prom and other activities. During National Music Week we presented a delightful program of music
of all ages. Later we entered the popularity contest with Minnie Wright, a new-comer, as our candidate. Our
Junior-Senior prom was very successful and everyone had a delightful time. Neal Stitt became president of the
Acies, Cordelia Blackburn, first president of the Clionic Society, George Stanley, Director of the Brotherhood
of St. Andrew. Pattie Laws, Vice President of Les Elites Society, Augustine Morrison, Vice President of the
Zeta Sigma Rho Society, Queen Moore, Secretary of Veledas and Margarita Lewis served as Secretary of Girls
Service League. Pattie Laws was also president of the Delanv House Government. George Sadler captain of
the Basketball Team. Charles Farrar became first colored president of the N. C. Episcopal Students" Conference.
At the end of the year after tears and worries, we realized that we were rising seniors and that a great task
lay before us. Hattie Redden was awarded the Delanv Scholarship based on scholarship, character and promise
f future usefulness; Auarustine Morrison won the Latham award for constructive leadership during sophomore
d junior years; Pattie Laws won one of the prizes offered for excellency in English Composition. So the year
Jrew to a close and ahead of us lay the goal post — the last mile. God only knew what it would bring.
Seniors! The word struck a deep note in our hearts. We felt that we had come over the rough and steep
lills and we lost no time in organizing ourselves and making plans for a memorable vear. After much delibera-
ion and meditation we elected Charles Farrar, President; ISeal Stitt. Vice President; Sarah DuPree, Secretary;
']dith Sands. Assistant Secretary; and Rebie Wilson. Treasurer. We began to plan for our senior publication,
''he Pen which was to be the best in the schooFs history. We also decided to be the leaders in reorganizitig
he Student Council. Pattie Laws became editor-in-chief of The Pen, ]\eal Stitt, Associate Editor; Prezell
vobinson, business manager and Augustine Morrison and Cordelia Blackburn, co-advertising managers. TSew
iienibers were: Frieda Strickland and William Perry.
George Sadler became President of the Acies. and again Captain of the basketball team; Cordelia Blackburn
/as reelected president of the Clionic Society; Hattie Redden became president of the Girls' Service League;
Villie Fennell president of the Big Sisters; Pattie Laws president of Les Elites Societv; Queen Moore president of
/'eleda Club; Margarita Lewis president of Zeta Sigma Rho Society. Margarita Lewis and Hattie Redden repre-
ented the seniors on the Altar Guild and Neal Stitt, George Sadler, Joseph Saunders, George Stanlev, Prezell
lobinson. and Charles Farrar were our senior Lav-readers.
As tiie time jiassed, we began to tliink in term of programs. We presented two interesting and well-received
irograms: The first program, directed by Cordelia Blackburn, showed the rules of etiquette for all time; the
econd program, directed by Queen Moore and Prezell Robinson, was a panel discussion of the timely topic
Are Sororities and Fraternities desirable on any college campus?"
The seniors made history when twenty-one of the thirty-two members made the honor roll for the first
jemester. Our boys made history, too, when they went en masse into Greek fraternities. Shirley Williams,
oseph Saunders and Charles Farrar became members of the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity: George Sadler and
I'rice Braithwaite became members of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity and George Stanley and Prezell Robinson
lecame pledged to the Omegas.
The time is passing so swiftly! Soon we must leave the old familiar place and people. Our four years
ire filled with memories that bless and burn! May Saint Augustine's stand forever!

the office, receiving phone calls at 2 a.m. that "there's a special in Tuttle Building to be delivered" — in other

Dedicated to Yon • • •
THROUGH the years you have kept high the buming torch
of womanhood. You have never deviated from the high
moral standards that we know were imbued in you from
birth. Gentle, dignified, wise and motherly, you have
strived so diligently to make women of us all. Never,
never once have you shown us that you saw no good in us;
never have you refused to listen to our childish pleas.
You have nursed our ills, you have dried our tears and
soothed our wounds. Your kindly advice always found
its way to our hearts even if our heads ignored it. In so
many simple ways have you tried to be a mother to us who
are so far away from home.
If we have seemed ungrateful; if we at times seemed
incorrigible; if we have rended your heart with our care-
lessness, thoughtlessness and often our callousness — if we
have done any of these things. FORGIVE US. MOTHER,
DEAR. We want you to know that we are weak and fool-
i-li and often do things that we regret the minute .they are done. Although we seem incorrigible
,it time- there is some good in us and we shall try to bring it forth from day to day.

To Class of 1948:
Having traveled tliree-loiirlhs of the rough road to Education, we the members
of the Junior Class feel that we are in a position to give vou advice and helpful
hints that we have picked up along tile way. We feel, too, that vou will appreciate
these suggestions coming from us as older brothers and sisters.
We have found that in anv- organization, be it an organaization for business or
one for pleasure, little can be accomplished without the cooperation of each member.
"No chain is stronger than its weakest link." Nothing much is gained when it is done
in a haphazard sort of wav. System is essential. Enough emphasis cannot be placed
As members of a student bodv that is well-known and respected in North Carolina,
vou must remember that evervthing vou do reflects on the institution. Alwavs think
before you act. Speaking in a frai\k manner, this refers to a lot of you members
There's one thing needed in the fight for learning that cannot be called anything
but "stick-to-it-iveness." That is as plain as we can make it. Diligence, faithfulness
and constant pursuit of a definite thing brings rich rewards.
Then, there's that feeling of responsibility. Remember there are some people who
care whether vou succeed or not. care whether vou hold vour head high or let it drop,
care whether vou forget how much it means to them to have you on the top shelf.
Those people are vour parents. To them vou exemplify the finest maidiood and
womanhood in the world, because you're all their own.
So keep in mind the aforementioned necessities for a really successful college career,
namely: Cooperation, self-respect, "stick-to-it-iveness," responsibility and regard for
others. Armed with these weapons plus the earnest desire to really "go places, " how
can you avoid being a class in the future, of which Saint Augustine's may be justly

these into practice.

The Big Sisters' Club has pledged to be big sisters to the freshmen girls of Saint
Augustine's College and to entourage them to utilize all of the worthwhile opportuni-
ties offered them during their vears in college. This organization is composed of
the young women of the Senior Class. During our years here we have become
acquainted with the problems that confront the freshmen in becoming adjusted to
college life. \^ e have tried to make this transitional period easier in order that our
little sisters will ha\e pleasant memories of their first college davs and will endeavor
two years hence to accept the responsibilitv to be Big Sisters to the freshmen girls
THE CLIOIVIC SOCIETY
The Clionic Society is the outgrowth of the interest on the part of the students of
Saint Augustine's College in current issues and problems. Mr. T. L. Spraggins
realized that many of the students enjoyed debates, group and panel discussions.
Therefore, in the fall of 1945 he gathered together representatives — students of different
classes — and organized the Clionic Society.
The qualifications for membership are very simple: an average of "C" in academic
work and an interest in current topics, magazines and other periodicals. The Clul)
has grown in membership to twenty-eight. The members are still very enthusiastic
and the programs presented are always well received. Beside panel discussions and
the like, the club sponsors several social affairs, including an annual fall banquet
and an annual spring picnic. Miss Cordelia Blackburn is serving for the second
time as president of the group.

LITERARY EFFORT OF STUDENTS
WHOSE BLOOD SAVED CORPORAL JOl^ES?
It didn't matter to this young taxi driver from Harlem. It didn't matter to his widowed mother
and sisters and brothers either. Nor did it matt?r to the hundreds of thousands of Americans all
over the country. But it did matter a great deal to Adolph Hitler. Why? Because, simply that blood was
one of the great reasons why he and his murderous henchmen were facing inevitable defeat.
Thousands of us gave freely of our blood during the war. Mr. Contu. the little Italian peddler
contributed two quarts in behalf of his only son who died at Pearl Harbor. Jacques, the French chef
at the big hotel, gave also. So did Mr. Rause, the Dutch jeweler; Fa Lung, the Chinese laundry boy,
and Albert, the Greek student at the Liniversity. Mr. Gallosky. the Jewish storekeeper, down at the
corner, closed shop early one afternoon so that his blood could help to save the lives of hundreds of
our boys at Bataan.
All during the war. there were vicious propagandists who would have had us believe that
Negro blood was inferior, that any nation that had even a drop of it running through its system
was a weak, degenerate nation. But Corporal Brown proved that these stories were all lies, that there
is only 0\E strain of blood— HUMAN BLOOD!
Because of the discrimination that was made towards our blood by the Red Cross, many prejudiced
people believed that if the blood of a different people were transferred to another, that person receiv-
ing it would inherit some of the qualities and physical characteristics of this other people. Scientists
have proved this statement to be wholly untrue. Plasma, when mixed with water, could and was used
to sa\e the life of any man or any woman of any race or color wounded in action anywhere in the
So. what difference did it make if the Red Cross did label our blood? When the need for this
life-restoring liquid arose, that little tag on the jar became just another scrap of paper. Our blood
saved the life of an American boy who may have been our own brother, father or husband. That is all
But. still you ask. whose blood did save Corporal Brown? Well, suppose we just sav that it
was the blood of Jew and Gentile. Catholic and Protestant. Negro and White. Democrat and Republican.
Northerner and Southerner. \^ e shall never know, and we should not even care.

THE FUTURE OF THE ]\EGRO YOUTH
The abrupt ending of the second world war has definitely affetted the future of the American
Negro. During that conflict many of our boys made the supreme sacrifice without flinching. They
were found in all theaters of the war fighting to preserve that which thev hold so dear and value so
highly — libertv. As a result of their constant struggle and numerous achievements, they have, in the
last two or three decades, caused many thoughtful Americans to wonder just what part thev would
plav in the postwar world.
Today, our boys are returning home by the thousands to an America which they hoped would
no longer be veiled with prejudice and hatred. They are trying to elevate themselves above the
mountains of indolence, fear, sloth, ignorance and superstition which have engulfed for more than
a century. This means that they will soon demand their rights, and in so doing, they will in all
eventuality open many doors for us. But how many of us will be able to enter these doors? Only
the Negro youth can answer this question. Let us turn to them with renewed hope and uplifted heart.
Their eagerness to defend the principles of democracy has caused our hopes to soar to unheard of
heights. If they gird on ambition, they will surely win. With that one incentive worlds have been
We must awaken them to the realization that preparation is the key to success. In preparing
themselves, they must remember that education is their chief asset. We were stopped once before
because of lack of education. We can't let it hinder us now! We must stand behind our vouth
with unfaltering trust and staunch belief. Never before has the field been so ripe with opportuni-
ties. It is up to our youth to choose some v^ocation for which each is best fitted. They must become
extremely efficient in their chosen work. Let us remember that our tomorrow must be built on the
foundation of perseverance and faith.
In planning for today's task, we must remember that along with every opportunity comes to chal-
lenge to prove our worth and convince our fellow-Americans that we should be allowed to share in
the peace that is yet to be won.
It will be well for us to remember and put into practice the motto of the late Dr. George W.
'"Start with what you have,
Never be satisfied."
At last the day for the game we've all been waiting for has arrived. The whistle blows, the ball
is thrown into play, and the great test of skills begins. Backward, and forward, the players dash over
the court, dribbling, trying tricky shots, and when the timing is perfect, sinking the ball into the
basket for a score. This coordination, cooperation, or whatever you may call it, among those five
boys on the court determines the outcome of the game. Win or lose, this hand of fellowship among
the players which we would like to call sportsmanship has influenced their attitude toward their
So it is in the game of life. From the moment of birth we begin to gather unto ourselves some
feeling and respect for the rules of sportsmanship — good or bad. In our daily life our attitudes in
playing this all important game fairly, become a silken cord which binds us to others and others to us.
We know that we cannot win all the time, but by learning to be more skillful in dribbling and
trickv shots the time will come when we shall make a score. We must learn to take our losses with
a smile on our faces and to shake hands with the opponent sincerely and honestly.
Sometimes we may feel that we have done all that we can in abiding by the rules of "the game"
and still we are cheated; but let us remember this that "the harder the defeat the sweeter the victory."
How much more we appreciate this victory, then, because we know that to our opponents we have ex-
tended the hand of fellowship and found in them an eagerness to accept it.
THE TRUTH SHALL If IKE YOU FREE
Today, nineteen centuries removed from the time of the utterance. "The Truth Shall Make You
Free." the workl is not free. Instead of there being perfect truth, the world is filled with confusion
and gropes in darkness.
Sometimes, we hear the expression: "What is truth?" There are any number of definitions of
truth, but I like to think of truth as being steadfast and sincere — dealing with one"s self and his
fellow men and following in the way and statutes of one's creator and leailer.
Men must know the truth and must be able to distinguish truth from falsehood. They must
know when people are preaching false doctrines and must be able to withstand them lest they lead
them into utter chaos. Whenever this idea of false doctrines comes to my mind. I inevitably think
of the people of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy who were led into the vallev of darkness and
despair by despots who filled them full of lies and deceitful doctrines. We must be able to analyze
the teachings of such persons and not fall victims of the same. It is true that the Germans proved
superior in many ways. They proved this without a doubt. They had tenacity, perseverance, fore-
sight, and dexterity which enabled them to advance with staggering swiftness. But. as the saying
goes: "Truth crushed to earth will rise again" and. thus, today we look at our warped and vengeful
enemy, a beaten nation, looking to the people they scorned for meat and shelter.
We can bring our minds to an even clearer event when we think of the abuses hurled at the
Negroes, and after having been abused, falsely accused, oppressed and desolated, they have achieved
some of the highest places ever in world society. They have made more progress in eighty years than
any race under the sun.
Men who know the truth are brave and unafraid. In this connection we can carry our minds
a long way back to the oppression of the Jews in Palestine by people who called themselves religionists
and descendants of Abraham. The Jews were beaten, devastated, and distressed until a certain Nazarene
came to their rescue. He gave them the truth as he knew it. He spoke in the temple among enemies
who were ready to take away his life at that same time; but he was not afraid. We ask ourselves
this question: "Why did this Nazarene speak so boldly with complete freedom from fear of
religionists who attempted to mob him?" There he stands speaking in the temple to those belie\ing
in him. Listen to him! Hear for yourselves his own answer to the question: "If ye continue in
my word, then ye are my disciples indeed and ye shall know the truth and The Truth Shall Make
you Free." He was finally arrested by religionists, held in custody, and abu.sed and derided, falsely
accused, and then nailed to a tree till lifeless. But he died a free man. He died because he did not
choose to fight back with powers that were at his command. He died because the interests of truth con-
cerning Himself and his Father would be more fully served by suffering innocently unto death than
by continuing to live as a man.
In conclusion, it is well to note that one must buy the truth at the cost of his time and effort
spent in searching for freedom.
Charity Begins at Home
When Hitler's stridenl l)attle-cry
Eniliillered and ernliroiled the world
A dcizen nations" war-Hags
Proud England smiled al Ireland.
And lifte<l thence lier maUed hand.
Removed her sword from India's throat
And loosed from Egypt her garrote.
Atoned for her harsliness to each colony.
And sent the call throughout her span
For every alile-hodied man
To take up arm? for Liherty.
And stately France sent to Morocco
Algeria. Madagascar, and the Congo
Saying. '"Take your sword in hand. Black Brothers,
Get your rifie out and clean it:
When we slew your sire and mothers.
You know we didn't really mean it.
All your sores fr<tm knives and lashes
We will gladly salve.
All those unfair tithes and taxes
We will gladly halve.
No more pitiful dole for you.
No forced labor with pick and bar
In those mines we stole from you.
You may have equality
And freedom while we are at war —
Come and fight for Liberty!"
Japan, hypocrytic and vain.
Plotted with the German maniac.
Said "So solly if honorable blade cause pain,"
And plunged her knife in America's back.
America reeled from the coward blow —
Reeled and recovered with her rage aglow.
The brazen trumpet-calls rang forth.
East and West, South and North.
To muster men, supplies, machines.
Soldiers, sailors, flyers, marines.
To avenge the deadly hypocrisy
And fight to protect democracy.
And down in Georgia or Tennessee.
A mob of Southerners around a tree
Heard their country's call and never flinched.
With firm foot-steps that did not lag.
They rallied to Democracy s flag.
Leaving hanging in that tree
A burnt and tortured amorphy —
A 'nigger" they had lynched.
When Hitler's strident battle-call is stilled, no more to blast.
And the world has seen the Rising Sun fall to a final
setting at last.
May all the folk of the world agree
To follow this ancient epitome:
Freedom. Justice. Love . . . Charity
SHOULD BEGIN AT HOME.
Who would think, that in a raindrop —
Tlie geometric symmetry of a snowflake latent lies.
The lake is a singing turquois blue —
But when I dip up some in my palm, it feigns a clear hue.
Out upon the plains of hesitation.
Lie the bones of countless millions —
Who upon reaching the threshold of success — rest, and
resting died —
This . . . is . . . Life.

My arms are the proper setting for a jewel like her;
But I'm too shy
I fix a smile upon my face when she passes by.
She returns an answering smile and slightly nods.
Passing me by.
I should overwhelm her with ardencies, but I'm too shy.
She smiles demurely, yet intriguingly —
It makes me sigh
And dream of storming her heart's portals — but I'm too shy.

to assist in the Building Fund campaign carried on by that church.
To the Young Women of the Campus:
Since Saint Augustine's is a Co-edurational college, we realize that harmony among its inhabitants is to be
achieved only through the striving of members of both sexes to be a brother or sister to his or her mates.
So as a brother to you all — and I do consider myself a brother — may I voice the young men's opinions of
you? It is not that I wish to down you; rather, it is that we seek an understanding on both our parts.
I know that from time to time you have been puzzled with the actions of the young men and have asked your-
selves "what's wrong with the boys?" Well, we've done the same and now we wish to lake a trip around the
campus and seek to remedy these many shortcomings.
Let us venture to the dormitories for a while. There we see — every day— a certain group of young ladies
entertaining a certain group of weak males, not thinking to give the other girls and boys a chance, and causing
these weak males to be conditioned and flunked in class work. Had you ever stopped to think that you're causing
your future husbands to spend a lifetime trying to prepare themselves to care for you? Okay, then, so lighten
up on the dates and give the fellows a chance to study. They're weak, so you must be strong, 1 know that SOCI.\L
HOURS are every day from 2:30 to .S:.30, but that does not mean the SAME GIRLS AND EVERY DAY? Be-
sides, the less he sees you the prettier you become, and vice versa. Since the campus is so small that one cannot
step out of his dormitoi? without seeing everybody, then why not limit your dates to once a week and maybe Sundays?
That's common sense, for then you're giving the other hundreds of girls a chance to sit on a sofa with their guys.
And, by the way, if you must wear those top coats within the Dining Hall, then please stop reaching so far for
food. We'd rather see your pretty dresses when we're eating— show them more often, please. And the least you
could do would be to take off those campus caps when seated at a table. And sister, by all means, please stop walking
out of the dining hall only because the food isn't what you want. Remember that there are hundreds of others
who don't have the money you have, and, all cooks burn food sometimes, and besides, it reveals poor intelligence
and thoughtless actions. Sit for at least ten minutes even if you don't eat.
Let us go to our beloved Chapel. Shall we go to giggle, move and replace our hymnals as noisily as we can, sit
inattentively, or shall we go to meditate and secure as much spiritual uplifting as possible? Then, shall we resolve
to make this a better place for spiritual food? Wonderful! \ step forward!
Oh, it's library hour, so grab your book and meet that guy, he's waiting. Just the thoughts of being beneath
a silver moon and the beautiful landscape make you long for nightly caresses. What do you think that guy thinks of
you for meeting him in such an illegal manner? The library is a place for studying and should be used for
such in a quiet way. And by all means encourage him to take you by the Cheshire Building on the way home!
The monthly social comes up tomorrow night. Are you planning to attend? No? Why? The Boys only dance
with a "few" girls? Oh sis, you're forgetting that the meaning of the word SOCI.AL is not limited to dancing alone.
Besides, the boys are only human beings, seeking in a world of preservation, to conserve leather — dancing with those
who offer the most entertainment for the length of a rec rd. You must admit that an intelligent conversation while
dancing adds much to enjovment. So, to the "few" las you say) who have been fortunate enough to dance every
dance, we say 'THANKS SIS, FOR A LITTLE COMMON SENSE AND KNOWLEDGE OF HOW TO CARRY
ON AN INTELLIGENT CONVERSATION."
Sister, don't be a cheer leader unless you can control your tongue, for we all know that school spirit here is
poor. Sometimes we are emotionally drained and don't feel like yelling, although the boys are playing a swell game.
If you must be a cheer leader remember "A slip of the lip (with the boysi really sinks a ship. '
And about dormitory secrets, they're to be kept within the dormitory. Boys will listen to your telling them,
but their opinion of your reliability, in the end, is lowered.
Sisters, we don't mean to be harsh in any way, we only wish that you be nice young women by remedying
your shortcomings, thus causing us to become better and more alert brothers. It is then only that Saint Augustine s
will be the college of our ideal and a campus conducive to work.
In other words, before you act, think through the matter and say, "I'm going to give the other fellow, as well
as myself, a chance."

O'Daiiiel for the Pe.n. I have been associated with her since
-lie lias been with the Music Department here and I Icnow her
a> a very charming person with whom all students can feel ut-
!<m1\ at ease. Of course. 1 could not talk about everything
idiinected with her life because time would not permit. There-
fore, after chatting about this and that we got down to business.
Naturally her music career was the highlight of the tete-a-
li-le. She started from her childhood and worked up to the
present and after she had finished I knew perfectly well why
our music department ha;- been so enriched since she has been
A? a child. Mrs. O'Daniel began study of the piano under
a Quaker woman who saw thai she had exceptional musical
talent and encouraged her mother and father to keep up her
lessons. Thus, further strengthened by a distant relative
ulio was a gifted musician in Philadelphia, she launched out
oil licr musical career. At fifteen years of age Mrs. O'Daniel
ua? chosen bv voung church people to organize and direct the
I liurrh choir. This was her incentive to do choral work.
After graduating from high school, she entered the State Teachers College at Cheyney. Penn-
-\hania. where she received the Bachelor of Science degree. She was greatlv encouraged there by
the college President and the music teacher, and was verv active during this time, appearing as soloist
for the choir, as dramatic star and in many other activities.
After graduation, she taught music in the Washington High School in Washington, N. C. It was
,1- the result of this work that her marriage came about. She studied at Chicago Musical College,
and being encouraged further by her piano and voice teacher she later went to the Lniversity of
r(Miis\ hania where she received the Master of Science Degree in Music Education. She has done
additional studv at Pennsylvania University and State College even after this.
<)uickl\ we came to her career here at Saint Augustine's where she has made such great progress
uilli the raw material. She says that she prefers to leach music although she likes her literature
I oiirses as well. The Choral Club here at Saint Augustines has been a great inspiration to her because
-lie can see what can be done in spite of the manv handicaps we ha\e. She finds the students eager
.irid willing to work, and for the most part, musical and intelligent. It gratifies her to no end. you
' .in imagine, to see the rapid progress and development that freshmen students make in the musical
' la-se- and choral club.
>lie finds a very sound and helpful Music set-up here at Saint Augustine's. Her onlv advice for
iiKantement would be an expanded instrumental department A\here students mav learn to plav other
in-truinents besides the piano. She feels that any teacher of music needs to be familiar with at least
"Hi' in-trument in everv class.
.^o the afternoon came too quickly to a close. I thought of the progress that had been made in
inu-K since Mrs. O'Daniel's arrival here and I silently prayed that each year would issue in some
one who would do as much as she has for the progress of Dear Old Saint Augustine's.
Dr. L. L. Woods
A CAMPUS SCHOLAR
Perhaps one of the most outstanding personalities on Saint
Augustine's campus, taking all things in consideration, is Dr.
Lloyd L. Woods. I feel that when we get an insight into the
factors that have contributed so much to the success of the
enviable person, we can well understand why students of the
campus have benefited so much by his brilliant presence. His
life, like most men of his peer, really began in college.
Born in Tola, Kansas, and educated in the Wichita public
schools, Lloyd Woods embarked on his chemical career af
Friends University in Wichita. After a brilliant college career
he was graduated in 1930. In the fall of 193L he began his
teaching career far from home at Saint Augustine's College,
in Raleigh, N. C. A year later he married Miss Dora Keeton
also of lola, who was in her senior year in college.
The year 1934 was a year of dual happiness for the Woods.
Their only child, Elaine, was born and at the same time. Dr.
Woods received the Master's degree from Kansas State College.
Continuous hard work and study in the years that followed
led to the earning of the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in
the field of Chemistry. This degree was conferred in the
summer of 194-i at Kansas State College.
Dr. Woods is connected with several national organizations pertaining to science, namely: The
American Chemical, the Phi Lambda Upsilon Honary Chemical Society and the Kansas Academy of
Science, also a social fraternity, Kappa Alpha Psi. During the summer of 1945, he taught Inorganic
Chemistry at the summer session of New York University. Numerous papers on chemistry have been
written by Dr. Woods and have been published in such national magazines as the Journal of Chemi-
During the past years Dr. Woods has proved himself to be not only a teacher well-versed
in his subject matter, but also a favorite with the students because he's a "regular fellow." Chem-
istry majors fondly call him "boss." In extra-curricular activities, both with the facultv and the
student bodv. Doctor Woods has rendered his services conimendably. Before the war called the
members of the Chancellors Club, he led them in a very admirable fashion. Now he is faculty
adviser to the ACIES Club and the Sophomore Club. He is also co-chairman of the Activities
Dr. Woods has launched many men on successful professional careers for by his splendid
method, he made them really learn the things that were worth while. The chemistry which seemed
a burden to them while here in pre-medical school proved to be a life-saver once they entered
medical school. Dr. Woods is justly proud of his many students, several of whom have graduated
with honor as physicians, dentists, or technicians.
Therefore, with pleasure and pride, the Pen Staff presents the "Scholar of the Year," Dr. Lloyd L.
Woods, the "right guy."
It's only human for people to like to receive awards. Perhaps I should say that it's only
natural for people to like to receive awards for something which they may have done that was con-
structive. Personally, I like to see people rewarded for everything they do. Of course, the value
of the award should be determined bv the constructiveness of the accomplished task which warranted
their receiving it. Therefore, I hereby bestow upon the following persons and organizations award
Mr. George Mask, Miss Cecile Beatty. Mr. Neal Sritt. and
Miss Yvonne Brown for their splendid representation of
St. Auyusline at the Omega Talent Hunt.
Mr. Aul)rey Lawson for liis brilliant performance in his
first dramatic jierformance.
Zela Sigma Rho for tlieir delightful January' dance.
The Clieer Leaders for their "revived spirits" after

cratic in a smoldering environment.
The veterans who adapted themselves so admirably to
a changed situation.
Mrs. Elizabeth Vincent Mayo who. in her unique
IJerformance. gave the students a recital they had long
Miss Eulalia Bailey, who has '"come out of her shell,'"
and is well on her way to becoming a well-integrated
Mrs. 0"Daniel for her excellent Choral Club.
Miss Freida Perry. Choral Club accompanist for the
Our B.W.I.'s, Miss Ina Barnes. Mr. Hugh Marshall.
Mr. Stanislaus Solomon. Mr. LeRoy Thompson, and
Mr. Coleridge Reeves for their academic success.
The Practice teachers for a job "'well done."
Mr. Price Braithwaite for providing entertainment for
the campus when he became the "Bearded man."
Mr. Lynch for his general spirit of cociperativeness,
friendliness, and helpfulness.
Mr. Charles "Mack"" Williams for coaching such a
Les Elites Society for presenting an interesting and
helpful workshop on "The Worthy Use of Leisure Time."'
To all of the recipients. I say '"wear your ORCHIDS proudly. It's a wonderful thing to have people like you."

Pity costs nothin' and ain't wuff nothin'!
Here lies my wife; tears can't bring her back:
Therefore. I weep.
Nature never makes a mistake. If she makes a fool

He who fights and runs away
Will live to fight another day.
There was a litle boy from York

He came to Saint Aug
Where one eats like a hog
And now he don't eat with no fork a-tall!

A KILOWATT HOUR?
A kilowatt hour is really not difficult
to understand Electricity is measured in
units of pressure (volts) and in units of
current flow (amperesK Multiply these
two together and you have a unit of
power, the watt. The watt is a relatively
small unit and it is customary to use
1,000 watts, or kilowatt as a practical
base of measurement of electricity. A
KILOWATT HOUR represents the use
of one kilowatt (1,000 watts) for one
hour. It represents energy equivalent to
one and one third horsepower. It is the
unit of measurement used in your electric
bill, and the residential customers of the
Carolina Power & Light Company pay
an average of two and seven-tenths
cents for each kilowatt hour of elec-
