Wilson Bunch is among the few
students who have done remarkably
well in class work during the year. Al
though he has been out of school for

Of the years away from school, two

won for himself four Presidential Unit

Before coming to State Teachers
College, Bunch was sent to the Un
iversity of North Carolina, Chapel Hill,
to take a series of tests to find the
career for which he was best suited.
The tests resulted in his being found
capable of clergical and social welfare
work. He chose Elizabeth City State

include the educational and spiritual
welfare of young people.

S.T.C. STUDENT IN THE NEWS

cattle to pasture, others wait to be

The foregoing quotation is an all-
inclusive one of all types of human
beings. It is the last phase of it, how
ever, that seems so befitting for a
student at S.T.C. The student? Dennis
Askew, a native of Ahoskie, N. C. and
junior at the College. He is a grad
uate of R. L. Vann High School in
Ahoskie, who enrolled here in the Fall
It was soon after his enrollment that
he began to play a great role in the
functions on our campus. Whenever
there are social events that call for
recordings, Dennis is generally behind
the phonograph, spinning the records.
Movies that are shown, whether for
entertainment or educational purposes,
are usually under the direct control of
The College has welcomed many
outstanding guests to its campus this
season, and it has been the privilege
of Dennis Askew to meet and greet
many of them. Two who are worthy of

Israel; and Miss Howard, a student
from Hampton Institute, who had

MY CONCEPTION OF LIFE
Life is a long, long journey
Tliat somehow never ends.
There are obstacles and backaches
And always battles to win.
It’s a long journey of disappoinment,
From those yo uthought were true.
There are many days of sorrows
Before life’s journey is through.
It’s filled with jealousy and hatred.
Of friends you loved so dear
Sometimes you feel discouraged
And wish life’s end were near.
Life is like a stormy ocean
It’s a batde of waves going on and on
Somehow the waves are ne’er ceasing
And there’s no anchor to call home.

SOCIAL STUDIES METHODS
CLASS GOES TO WASHINGTON
Recently our class in the Methods
of Teaching Social Studies, with our
instructor Mrs. Eaton, went on a trip
to Washington, D. C. We were to tour
the places we had listed and thought
important. This was a fine time for
some of us to get direct experience,
since many of us had never been to
Washington, D. C.
The first building we toured was
i;he Bureau of Engraving and Printing,
where all the money is made. We had
tO wait in line because there were
o;her classes there just like ours. When
we finally got in, a guide was assign
ed to a certain number. Our guide
told us about the process of making
money and how careful each one had
1:0 be in his work. She also told us
about how much money was in cu-
culation and that 70% of the money
was in dollars bills. She said. The
life of a dollar bill is thirteen months .
After leaving the Bureau of En
graving and Printing, we went over to
the White House. We had to wait in
line there also. When we got in, we
