...they didn't play.
PJC's well mannered student body got up on
its ear just once since January. When it did,
three tardy and famous negro boys were the cause
of a near riot. On January 9, the King Cole
Trio was hired to apear in assembly. On January
9, three minutes before assembly drew to a close,
the Trio arrived, 55 minutes late. Bells jangled.
Students were supposed to hop off to classes.
Not a one stirred. Five minutes later Sexson
Auditorium was still full of waiting students.
Tension rose when King Cole and the boys came
before the curtain to plead for permission to
play. Shouts and clapping reechoed through the
big room. But Principal John Harbeson walked
cooly on stage, told students to go to classes.
Grudgingly they did.

friendship among Negro students in the college,
the Armulite Club was established. This group strives
to inspire interest in the maintenance of good scholastic
records and to urge more active participation in
extracurricular affairs. A young man or woman enrolled
in the twelfth grade or in Upper Division may become
an active member. Freshmen students may become inactive
members. The club holds its own dances and social
activities of which there were many.
