                Herb Kincey ’57, ’59 NC Xi, is a retired outdoor equipment retail, survival
                 instructor, and EMT First Responder in Sante Fe, New Mexico. 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
