Foreword 




As we take leave of your cherished and hallowed walls, dear Alma 
Mater, we feel our hearts filling up with love and our well of knowledge 
brimming over. It hardly seems that four years have passed, but when 
we realize the vast store of knowledge and experience that is ours then 
we know that they have passed indeed. We are now equipped with in- 
valuable weapons with which to battle our way through the world, and 
we shall not fail you. We shall surely bring home the victory. 

We owe and give heartiest and humble thanks to the faculty and staff 
of St. Augustine's who have contributed so much in their manifold capaci- 
ties to our development and maturity. We realize that we often appeared 
to be hopeless and utterly impregnable to your efforts but "be ye not de- 
ceived" for our minds are indelibly impressed with your teaching. 

With all our hearts and everything within us, we promise to avail 
ourselves of every opportunity to make ourselves bigger and better alumni 
of our grand, magnificent and beloved Alma Mater. 

"Success is not won by wishing, but by hard work, bravely done." 



To YoM We Sincerely 
Dedicate 




Cecil D. Halliburton, Dean of St. Augustine's College, was born in Hickman, 
Kentucky, in 1900. He did his undergraduate work at Lincoln University (Pa.) 
from which he received his bachelor's degree in 1923. His Master's degree was 
received from the University of Pittsburgh, and he also holds the diploma of the 
New York School of Social Work. 

During the year 1924-1925, he taught in St. Augustine's College Preparatory 
Department, leaving to return in 1930 to the then new St. Augustine's College. 
He became Dean of the college in 1942. The Dean is a member of Kappa Alpha 
Psi Fraternity, and editorial writer and columnist for Raleigh's only Negro news- 
paper. The Carolinian. He also does a weekly column for the Norfolk Journal and 
Guide. He is the author of a book. "The History of St. Augustine's College." 

We, the Senior Class of 1947, are more than proud to acquaint the members 
of St. Augustine's family with these many outstanding qualities of Dean Halli- 
burton. What we say on this page we say with complete sincerity because he 
deserves this and even more. To him we owe a debt for the guidance he has given 
us through the years: he has never failed to give us that advice and guidance that 
has proved the most advantageous to us. 

Dean Halliburton, you have been gentle and painstaking when we were most 
in need of your suport. We are aware of the ungratefulness and utter helplessness 
we must have exhibited on many occasions, but please believe us when we say 
that our gratitude knows no bounds. We can never express ourselves on a single 
page, but as we go out into the world we will endeavor to make use of your 
every principle and teaching. 

So, Dean, please allow us to dedicate this our class annual to you in appreciation 
for all that you have done toward molding us into real men and women.

SENIOB CLASS MISTOMY 



Graduation! It hardly seems possible that the 66 eager, green freshmen of 
1943 could have evolved to form the 41 dignified, well-educated, prospective 
alumni of 1947. But, by recognition of the great power of time, we realize that 
this is possible and an actuality. We were a typical wartime class, made up al- 
most entirely of youngsters and young women. With typical wartime speed, we 
organized within two months after our arrival. Our first officers were: Charles 
Farrar, President; Doreatha McHardy, Secretary; Mayme Shuler, Treasurer, 

Immediately, we began to make ourselves felt in all activities and classes of 
the campus. Two-thirds of the class went into the pre-medical department, and 
the balance went into either French, Music or English. On the basketball team, 
our athletic prowess was adequately displayed by Jesse Boston and William 
Jackson. When organizations began their periods of initiation, our academic and 
social standing was exemplified by the large number of us who achieved mem- 
bership. As the year sped on to an end, we were the recipients of several of the 
prizes given at commencement time. Eunice Tucker received the Biology prize; 
Erma Ligon, the prize for improvement in Freshman English; and Corine Wright, 
the prize for Qualitative Analysis. 

We returned our Sophomore year minus many of our classmates for numerous 
reasons, especially the eternal draft. Martha Goodson came back as Mrs. Jones, 
thus giving us our first marriage. We began that year with the following officers: 
Hugh Marshall, President; Ruth Edgecombe, Secretary; and Mayme Shuler, Treas- 
urer. We had several new members replenishing our depleted ranks. From 
North Carolina State came Beatrice Carter, Doris McKinney, Lily Hicks, Doreatha 
Baxter and Juanita Pullen. From Alcorn A. & M. we had Adriena Carter. There 
were also Vivian Harris and Helen Gill. As this year rolled on, we held our 
various prominent places with ever increasing dignity and pride. The Clionic 
Society was organized this year and we figured representatively among the charter 
members. In the field of prizes, Eunice Tucker received the first prize for excel- 
lence in literary composition and Frances DeYoung received the first prize in 
the dramatic expression contest. 

Before we realized it September 1945 arrived and we were "privileged juniors," 
or so we thought. The end of the war had come and with it veterans — filling our 
new class membership. The.v were old St. Augustinians — Bradford Marshall, 
George Foxwell, Waymond Burton and Chester Byrd. New young women in- 
cluded Marian Lundy, Delores Peebles. Edith Taylor, Lucille Patterson, Pearleen 
Moore, and Hattie Watford. Iminediately, plans got under way for that most 
important activity of all Junior classes, the Junior-Senior Prom. Our officers for 
this year were: Helen Payne, President; Harriet Lee, Secretary; and Erma Ligon, 
Treasurer. We were represented well on the official staffs of the various campus 
organizations, befitting our academic maturity. Hugh Marshall again was Director 
of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew; Corine Wright, Vice President of Les Elites; 
Martha Jones, Vice President of Zeta Sigma Rho; Sarah McClamb, Secretary of 
the Veledas, and Helen Gill, Vice President of the Veledas. We rambled on 
through our junior year, leaving our marks indelibly on the honor roll as well 
as the memories of St. Augustine's family. Again we stood out as recipients of 
several of the awards. Bradford Marshall received the prize for the best record 
in the advanced field of the Natural Sciences; Helen Payne, for excellence in 
Dramatic Expression; Mayme Shuler, the Delany Scholarship; Leroy Thompson, 
for excellence in Biblical Literature, and Helen Gill, the Latham award. 

Our Senior Year! Here we were at last. We didn't know what was to be 
found on this last rough mile, but we determined to walk it. New members were: 
A. Richard Henderson, William Fax, Leonard McCarthy, Gwendolyn Cox, Beulina 
Roberts, Jonah Davis, Gordon Robinson and Oliver Morse. With this new, excit- 
ing blood we organized for the last time. Officers were; Oliver Morse, President; 
Helen Payne, Vice President; Eunice Tucker. Recording Secretary; Harriet Lee. 
Corresponding Secretary; and Richard Henderson, Treasurer. Again we injected 
ourselves into vital positions on the Campus. George Foxwell became Lord High 
Chancellor, Sarah McClainb was President of the Veledas, and Helen Payne, Pres- 
ident of Les Elitps. George Foxwell also captained the football team and 
presided over the Varsity Club. Bradford Marshall and Oliver Morse successfully 
reorganized the Student Council. Into Greek Letter organizations went Gordon 
Robinson, Oliver Morse, George Foxwell, Waymond Burton, Corine Wright, 
Delores Peebles, and Marian Lundy. 

This year has passed so swiftly! On into the frightening, enveloping world we 
are going. Ever before us our motto stands, "Success is not won by wishing but 
by hard work bravely done."

CLASS SONG 

Oh, blessed school, we turn to you 

To say, "forever be;" 
For what we've learned in all your walls 

Shall last eternally. 
You've been our pillar and our forge 

And have given Youths fair start. 
The wealth that you have offered us 

Includes the science and art. 
Now we will prove our gratitude 

In all we say and do; 
We'll make things bright through darkest night — 

In memories of you. 
In this great race we've set a pace; 

Your frame shall e'er be seen. 
Your beacon light, the school of might, 

A place so calm and plain.

CLASS POEM 

Oh, fairest St. Augustine's, praises to thee we bring. 

To the powers thy care has taught us, forever we will cling. 
Of these we will ever boast, while traveling along our chosen course; 

For these powers we command are powers of the land. 
Now dear Alma Mater, though leave we must. 

We feel we have knowledge we can trust; 
Not with complacence but with security; 
A security of oblation and obligation. 

So dear Alma Mater, may this be our oration, 

We shall strive to create a more perfect nation, 
Not a nation of might but a nation of right 

With God in sight. 
So wherever we see the blue and white gleaming, 

We will always know the meaning, 
Though dark the world may be. 

We can turn our thoughts to thee. 
Remembering, "The truth will set us free." 

Helen Viola Kilpatrick, '47.

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 Club has grown considerably in membership since it was 
chartered. During the past year, it led St. Augustine's in its history- 
making achievements at the North Carolina Student Legislative Assembly. 



28 



A SAINT AUGUSTINE'S ATHLETE 

I was very much enthused when assigned the task of interviewing one 
of the most interesting personalities of the campus, Coach Russell Blunt. 

Coach Blunt attended Punchard High School, Andover, Massachusetts, 
and played football and basketball for two years, graduating in 1926. In 
1927, he came south to attend St. Paul's Normal and Industrial School 
in Lawrenceville, Va. During his stay at St. Paul's, he captained the 
football and basketball teams ( 1928-29). In 1930, he was graduated from 
trade school with a diploma in printing. 

In 1932, he entered the freshman class at Bluefield State College, Blue- 
field, W. Va. Again he participated in athletics — playing against St. 
Augustine's College. Through friendships made during these games he 
decided to enter St. Augustine's College and did so in the fall of 1933. 

After playing two games of football here, he became student coach under 
Coach George Mitchell. He also captained the team during his senior 
year (1935). In 1936 he was graduated, and spent the next two years 
coaching independent athletic teams in Lawrence, Massachusetts, before 
accepting the position of assistant athletic director and assistant dean of 
Men at Southern University, Scotlandville, Louisiana. 

Coach Blunt left Southern University in 1942 to accept a position as 
head coach and dean of men at Florida Normal College in St. Augustine, 
Florida. In 1943 he began work on the degree of Master of Education, 
which he received from Boston University in 1944. From 1944 to 1946 
Mr. Blunt was head coach and teacher of health and physical education 
at the McKinley High School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. At present he 
is coach here at St. Augustine's and also head of the department of Health 
and Physical Education. 

Coach Blunt feels that no school's athletic program can be successful 
without the wholehearted cooperation of the administration. The co- 
operation of students, coach, athletes, alumni and friends is essential. It's 
not too big a job for every student in the College. 

Coach Blunt's main school interests are all kinds of athletics and pro- 
viding recreational means by which the students can be kept busy. He 
has no particular hobby. Mr. Blunt is a member of the Kappa Alpha 
Psi Fraternity. 

To Coach Russell Blunt: The senior class of St. Augustine's College 

offers you hearty congratulations for returning to our Alma Mater to give 

of your athletic ability toward building up our common interest — dear ole 

St. Aug.! 

A. Delores Peebles.

OECHIDS 

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 constructive. Personally, I like 
to see people rewarded for everything they do. Of course, the value of 
the award should be determined by the constructiveness of the ac- 
complished task which warranted their receiving it. Therefore, I hereby 
bestow upon the following persons and organizations award of ORCHIDS: 

Big Sisters' Club for its delightful Initial "Get Acquainted Ball." 

Les Elites Society for its helpful "Charm Week," with it emphasis on the 
"correct thing." 

The football team's dynamic, victorious comeback after five years of 
inactivity. 

Mrs. Delany for the entertaining one-act plays on Anniversary Night. 

Misses Alma Harris and Caroline Alexander for their magnificent duo- 
piano recital. 

All of St. Augustine's engaged couples. 

Zeta Sigma Rho Society for its "sharp" Christmas dance. 

Mr. Lynch for his heroic recovery after his illness. 

Messrs. Blunt, Boyer, and Perry for returning to their Alma Mater and 
lending such helping hands toward leading her upward. 

Veleda Club for bringing the ambitious Washington High Glee Club 
to the campus again. 

The many students for their successful entry into Shaw's Greek Letter 
organizations. 

The Chancellors Club for its thoroughly intellectual presentation of its 
Palm Sunday Tea. 

Richard Powell for letting the campus know that not all men are without 
training and courtesy. 

The basketball team for its "die-hard, fighting spirit." 

The practice teachers for a hard job "well done." 

To the Acies for showing us how Taylor Hall can look when it is really 
decorated at their Easter Monday dance. 

Those freshmen who have learned that St. Aug. is a great place, and 
have become so well adjusted.

gosh, don't they look hard. 

Turn around. Kit. At least pretend

Isn't it a pity we all cawn't dawnce
