He wrote about life at Davidson: “Davidson was a very different place back in the fifties. The school was all male for starters. Freshmen had to wear beanies during the first semester, as I remember and run errands for upper classmen. Getting caught with or drinking alcohol (even off campus) was a very serious offense, but many of us frequented Hatty's Polynesian Tearoom (a crummy tavern) just north of town anyway. Beer was 25 cents a can. I still remember competing with other student wrestlers to see who could crush the most beer cans with one hand. They were steel back then, not aluminum. Fraternities were a very important part of student life. Several friends and I who had just graduated from Woodberry all joined SAE. I have never regretted that decision and still keep up with some of the brothers from that era. Religion was also an important part of campus life. Students were required to attend a service in the big student assembly hall at least 3 times a week during the day. And we also were required to attend church services on campus every Sunday evening. In those days we were assigned numbered seats and had to appear before the student-led "Court of Control" if we missed a service. This "court" was composed of the largest jocks on campus. They were not people you wanted to cross very often. I was only at Davidson for year and a half, then transferred to UNC-Chapel Hill. But I will always remember fondly my short time at the school, the friends I made while there, and the experiences we all had as we moved on toward becoming adults. It was not an easy process.” Reach Herb at email@example.com. ANNUAL DUES Annual, voluntary dues for the NC Theta Alumni Association are welcome.
