THE EFFECT OF THE WAR UPON MARYVILLE COLLEGE
For two college years the pressure of war upon Maryville and all other colleges has grown steadily heavier.
During 1940-41 students were permitted by Selective Service regulations to remain in college, but men over twen-
ty-one had registered and knew they were subject to call for military training any time after July 1, 1941.
When colleges opened in September, 1941, most of them had fewer students than in the preceding year. Women's
colleges were affected least, men's colleges most. The average decrease for all colleges was something over ten
per cent; the decrease at Maryville was about seven per cent.
The direct effects of the war on every college are now and will continue to be of at least five kinds: reduced
enrolment, decreased income to the college from students, from gifts, and probably from endowment, rising costs
for the college and the faculty, uncertainty on the part of all, necessity of adjustments to meet the emergency.
Maryville's War-Time Service
We have revised Maryville's peace-time schedules, procedures, and curricula to meet the imperative new
needs suddenly created by the entry of the United States into the war. The College's war-time service to the
nation and its youth is being made in four principal ways: (1) By maintaining with full effectiveness the insti-
tution's century-old function of educating young men and women for Christian American citizenship. (2) By
offering a considerable number of courses of special value to those planning for military, industrial, or other
government service; these include regular and new courses in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Govern-
ment, History, International Relations, and other fields. (3) By providing a War-Time Accelerated Program.
(4) By conducting a Summer Session. Elsewhere in this Magazine is a brief description of the Accelerated Pro-
gram and the Summer Session, which are new in Maryville's life.
In addition to the courses offered toward the degree the College is participating in the organized Civilian
Defense program of the community. In cooperation with the Defense Council, Red Cross, Chilhowee Club,
and other groups, there are standard classes in First Aid, in Nutrition, m defense against air raids, and m gen-
eral civilian defense; there is cooperation in various registrations, and other services.
We obtain and transmit to students all available information about the Selective Service procedures and the
opportunities in military and industrial service, and our officers provide counsel to students concerning their plans.
These are indeed momentous days for young men, and for young women too, especially for those in a college
group, whose age and training are of such importance in the vast military enterprise now claiming the nation's
Maryville has no military training on the campus such as that given through the S.A.T.C. in 1918. The
Government has no present plans for military training in colleges except through the R.O.T.C. units already in
existence at the land-grant universities and a few other institutions. In 1918 students could enlist in the S.A.T.C.
and remain in college at government expense. Maryville had about seventy-five S.A.T.C. students. This kept
the boys in college and also held up the College income.
How Alumni Can Help
For the past ten years we have had no difficulty in filling our self-imposed quota of eight hundred. In most
of those years we have turned students away. We have been glad that there was no necessity of expensive ad-
vertising, or of keeping agents in the field to seek students, or of offering so-called scholarships to induce students
to come,' doubtful practices all too common among American colleges. We have been glad also that we could
lift and 'enforce our academic standards and make a rather careful selection of students. We hope to be able
to continue these policies.
But we must be realistic. We may find our enrolment dropping until the loss of income from student fees,
modest as they are, will create a serious financial situation. Our faculty and staff and facilities are geared for
eight hundred stud'ents. We need that many. But the war will keep us from having them unless loyal alumni
become recruiting representatives of the College.
Maryville alumni can do two important services for their Alma Mater: (1) Send us more students of Mary-
ville quality; (2) Put Maryville into their budgets for regular and special gifts, because even with full enrol-
ment there are the increased costs to be met.
Maryville Faces Tomorrow With Faith
This is the fifth American war in Maryville's long history. There have been the Mexican War, the Civil
War, the Spanish-American War, and the first World War; and now there is the second World War with all its
terrible immensity. Dire predictions are being made by some people about the future of colleges not supported by
taxes. But we at Maryville have such confidence in the nation's need for the Christian church-related college, in
the deep foundations of Maryville College, and in the unfailing providence of God, that we face the days ahead
with patriotic devotion to the cause of liberty and our country, and with renewed faith in God and his purposes
for our Alma Mater as she enters upon her one hundred and twenty-fourth year of ser\'ice.
RALPH WALDO LLOYD
GIVE WAR SAVINGS STAMPS AND BONDS
Mr. Orville Poland of the Defense Savings Stafi:'.
Washington, D. C, has, through The National Alumni
Council, requested that all alumni associations acquaint
their membership with the three-fold purpose served
by giving to their Alma Mater War Saving Stamps and
Bonds. He has pointed out that bonds given to an
educational institution will (1) provide ready cash for
the war effort, (2) will help to prevent inflation by re-
ducing cash in circulation, (3) will help to provide a
cushion to absorb the shock that all educational insti-
tutions are bound to receive as a result of the read-
justments that will follow the war.
While bonds are not transferable. War Savings
Stamps are. It is recommended that the alumni, who
wish to contribute to the College in this way, iill War
Savings Stamp Books and send them to The Alumni
Office at the College. The College will convert the
stamps to bonds and will pledge itself to hold the bonds
until the national emergency has passed or until their
maturity date. Bonds given to your Alma Mater are de-
ductible from your income tax returns under "Contribu-
tions" which may be as much as 15 percent of your
The Alumni Office is making an effort to secure suf-
ficient copies of the 25c denomination War Savings
Stamp albums to enclose one with each Magazine.
Look for yours. One of these albums when filled totals
$18.75 and may be exchanged for a $25.00 series "E"
or "F" bond. If you cannot iill an album, then put as
many stamps in it as you can and return it to the
Alumni Office. Do not send bonds; they are not trans-
ferable. Send stamps and the College will convert them
AT GENERAL ASSEMBLY
The annual Maryville College General Assembly
breakfast will be held in Milwaukee on Saturday morn-
ing. May 23, at eight o'clock, at the Wisconsin Hotel,
720 North Third Street. This hotel is but a few
blocks from the Auditorium, where the sessions of the
General Assembly are to be held. There will be posters
in prominent places in the lobbies of the Auditorium.
All former students, all Directors, and all parents of
students of Marj^ille College, are invited to be guests
of the College at the breakfast. Alumni living in the
Wisconsin area should notify Rev. W. Clyde Wilson
('23) at 140 East Dayton Street, Madison, Wisconsin.
All attending General Assembly should sign the register
provided with one of the posters at the Auditorium.
President Ralph W. Lloyd will be at the breakfast
and plans to show colored moving picture iilms of the
campus and some of the faculty and students.
President Lloyd has certain duties in the General As-
sembly as Chairman of the Department of Church Co-
operation and Union. Also he is this year one of the
two ministrial Commissioners from the Presbyter)' of
Union, within whose bounds Maryville College is lo-
ATLANTIC HIGHLANDERS PLAN 12TH
The Atlantic Highlanders plan their twelfth annual
meeting for May 23 at the Hotel Alamac, New York
City. At their last meeting in Washington, D. C, they
decided to rotate the annual meeting from Washing-
ton to New York to Philadelphia. John Tope, '33, was
elected President; Mrs. Majorie Jones Spilatore, '34,
was elected Vice President; Harold F. Holman, '29, was
For further information write to Harold Holman at
Girard College, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The only way the Alumni Association can hope to
meet the increased cost of everything without raising
its rates is through an increase in the number that pay
dues to the Association. No dues are to be paid by gradu-
ates the iirst year they are members of the Association,
but dues are payable by them the second year and each
year thereafter. The alumni year runs from July 1st
to June 30th. When you send in your dues please in-
dicate what year or years you are remitting for.
MARYVILLE'S STEADY ADVANCE
From the beginning, Maryville College has magnified
high academic standards. Twenty-five years ago and
earlier both its college and preparatory departments
were doing a high quality of work. Within the past
quarter of a century the plan of official accrediting has
developed widely in the United States until now in-
stitutions are rated largely by their place on various
standardizing and membership lists. Maryville College
has, especially in the past decade, gained increasing
recognition in the academic field. Most of these recog-
nitions involve, as did the recent accrediting of the
music work, extensive reports and examinations.
In 1922, Maryville became an accredited member of
the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary
Schools, the basic official standardizing agency in the
South. A place on the approved list of the American
Medical Association was a valuable advance. In 1932,
Maryville was placed on the approved list of the As-
sociation of American Universities, which is the most
selective accrediting list in the nation, and in 1941 was
approved for full membership by the American Associa-
tion of University Women, one of whose prerequisites
is a place on the list of the Association of American
Universities. And now in 1942, comes approval for
membership in the National Association of Schools of
Music. Maryville has various other memberships and
listings hut the ones named above are those of special
importance in the matter of accrediting. They place
Maryville among the most highly accredited American
liberal arts colleges.
Katharine Currie Davies
MARYVILLE'S WORK IN MUSIC NATIONALLY
The National Association
of Schools of Music, after
a thorough examination of
the standards, teaching, and
results of Maryville's work
in music, notified President
Lloyd m March that the
College had been approved
for Associate Liberal Arts
College membership. This
carries official accreditment
by the Association, which
is the principal accrediting
body of the nation for
conservatories, schools, and
departments of music.
Maryville is listed in the Association's Bulletin for
March, 1942. In the Maryville College Catalog for
1942 is this statement concerning the institution's work
in music: "Maryville College is an associate liberal arts
college member of the National Association of Schools
of Music. Requirements for entrance and for gradua-
tion as set forth in this Catalog are in accordance with
the published regulations of the National Association
of Schools of Music."
In the organisation of the Maryville College curricu-
lum, music, dramatic art, and art are grouped in the Di-
vision of Fine Arts. A major is given in each of these
three fields. The accreditment reported in this article
applies, of course, only to music. Katharine Currie
Davies, B.A., B.Mus., Mus.M., is Professor of Music
and Chairman of the Division of Fine Arts. Other
members of the music faculty are Ralph R. Colbert,
B.S., M.A., Associate Professor, in charge of the work
in voice and of the musical organizations; Dorothy D.
Home, B. Mus., Mus.M., Assistant Professor, who
teaches violin and theory; Genevieve L. Cowen, B.Mus.,
Instructor in piano and school music; Ethel Davis,
Mus.B., A. A. CO., Instructor in organ.
The National Association of Schools of Music has a
membership of approximately one hundred and thirty
institutions in the United States. During the past year
the president of the Association has been Howard Han-
son of the Eastman School of Music, Rochester, N. Y.,
and the chairman of the Commission on Curricula has
been Earl V. Moore of the University of Michigan.
The secretary is Burnet C. Tuthill, of Memphis. There
are only four members in Tennessee. They are: Mem-
phis College of Music with which Southwestern College
maintains a cooperative arrangement; Cadek Conserva-
tory of Music in Chattanooga with which the Universi-
ty of Chattanooga maintains a cooperative arrangement;
Ward-Belmont College, Nashville, a well-known junior
college for women which does not give degrees; and
Maryville College. Maryville is the only degree grant-
ing institution in Tennessee accredited by the National
Association of Schools of Music which conducts all its
music work by its own faculty and within the college
When Maryville College reorganized its music cur-
riculum in 1936 the standards and requirements of the
National Association were taken as the pattern. It did
not seem practicable to apply for accreditment until
there had been at least four year's opportunity for the
program to become established and the first music
majors to be graduated. In the fall of 1941, Maryville
first made application for accrediting. A detailed re-
port was compiled and submitted to the National As-
sociation; an examiner appointed by the Association,
Mr. Price Doyle, spent two days at the College and
made a report to the Association's committee. Upon
authority of action taken by the Association at its
eighteenth annual meeting, held in Minneapolis, De-
cember 30-31, 1941, Maryville was approved and ad-
mitted to membership as stated above.
Alumni will be interested in the following statistics
concerning the number of students taking work in
music this past year. In addition to the scheduled
classes, there were 125 to 150 individual lessons given
by the music faculty each week. There are in the 1942
senior class six music majors; there are 40 students in
the choir, 30 in the orchestra, 54 in the band, 120 in
the glee clubs, 100 in the Disc Club, and 220 in the
Christmas Messiah Chorus. Alumni will be interested
also in the music equipment which was reported to the
Association and examined by their representative. The
music equipment on the first and second floors of the
Voorhees Chapel building includes one Wicks two
manual pipe organ, one Estey two manual organ, one
Steinway Concert Grand piano, three small grands, and
nineteen other pianos; a Victor electric reproducing ma-
chine, two victrolas, one extra turn-table which plays
through the radio equipment, and a limited number of
orchestral and band instruments. This list does not in-
clude the ten pianos in other buildings on the campus.
The old reed organ, which was at the College for
about sixty years, was bought recently by Frank R.
Neif, Jr., '33, who played it while in college and writes
that he is repairing and refinishing it and is delighted
to have it.

THE SUMMER SESSION— 1942
The Summer Session is an integral part of the Ac-
celerated Program, although it is open to anyone who
wishes to attend. It will last twelve weeks, from June

tional defense program. There will be high officials
of the Navy and other branches of the government and
plans are being made for an audience of several
thousands of people.
The program will be broadcast over all three Knox-
ville radio stations, WROL, WNOX, WBIR, and a part
of it over some two hundred stations of the Mutual
Broadcasting System. The program will begin at 12:15
noon CWT and the first fifteen minutes of it will be
broadcast over the Mutual System.

HERE AND THERE WITH ALUMNI
Representatives of this year's reunion classes cO'
operated with the Alumni Office in circularising their
class memberships with a form questionnaire. Many of
the questionnaires were filled out and returned to the
Alumni Office and were a great help in correcting ad-
dresses, planning for Alumni Day, and gleaning infor-
mation for the Alumni Magagine. All the historical
materials are recorded on the alumni permanent file
cards, and material of recent date is included with that
gathered here and there.
The Alumni Office has received a letter, dated May
2, 1941, from the Rev. T. Worsley Maguire, Heales-
ville, Victoria, Australia. We quote the letter in full:

THE HONOR SOCIETY
The local Scholarship Honor Society, Alpha Gamma
Sigma, was organised in 1934 and now has a member'
ship list of 113, of whom 94 are student members, 10
associate members, and 9 honorary members. In the
eight years only one member, Dr. George Alan Knapp,
Phi Beta Kappa, Hamilton College, 1884, has died.
Dr. Knapp was one of the prime movers in the organi'
:;ation of our local society; he was a member of its
committee on constitution, and was actively interested
in the program of the society.
This year seven members of the Class of 1942 were
elected to membership; Helen Louise Cone of Salt Lake
City, LItah; Ruth Elizabeth Duggan, of Knoxville, Ten-
nessee; Marian Elisabeth Jenkins, of Erie, Pennsylvania;
Mary Hathaway Jenks, of Groton, New York; Ruth
Marie Sutherlin, of Cincinnati, Ohio; and Henry Moore
Wick and Hilton A. Wick, of Scottdale, Pennsylvania.
The officers of the Society for 1942-1943 are Harriet
M. Miller, '40, President; Henry Moore Wick, '42,
Vice-president; and Edwin R. Hunter, '14, Secretary.
At its last meeting held on March 17, the society
elected three honorary members. Their citations follow:
Henry Jewell Bassett, '04, (Ph.D., University of
Michigan) for a distinguished record in the field
of classical scholarship and for an outstanding
career as teacher in that field at Maryville Col-
lege, Evansville College, and Southwestern of
Clinton Hancock Gillingham, '05, (D.D.) for a
distinguished record as a minister and educator.
For many years head of the Department of
Bible and Religion at Maryville College and
Registrar of the College, and since 1929, Presi-
dent of the Tennant College of Christian Edu-
cation in Philadelphia.
Ann Ethel Fanson, '13, (M.D., University of
Chicago) for a distinguished record in the field
of medicine and surgery. On the staff of the
Los Encinas Sanatorium of Pasadena, California,
and promiently connected with many lines of
medical interest and service.
The recognition ceremony was held at the Chapel
hour on Wednesday, March 18, with President Charles
E. Diehl of Southwestern of Memphis, as the speaker.
President Diehl is this year President of the Association
of American Colleges, and Moderator of the General
Assembly of the Presbyterian Church, U. S.
MEMOIRS OF JOHN H. REAGAN
One day in August of last year Mr. and Mrs. Jeff
D. Reagan of Fort Houston, Palestine, Texas, paid a
visit to Maryville College in which they were interest-
ed because Mr. Reagan's father, John H. Reagan, was
a student here in the eighteen hundred and thirties,
more than a hundred years ago. On the same trip they
visited Sevier County, where a monument is to be erect-
ed at the site of his father's birthplace.
John H. Reagan became one of the best known men
in the South. Going to Texas from Maryville by way
of Mississippi at the age of twenty-one, he became a
surveyor, a lawyer, a soldier. In 1852, at the age of
thirty-four, he was elected a district judge, and five
years later a member of the U. S. House of Representa-
tives. In 1860 he resigned his seat in Congress and
became a delegate from Texas to the Provisional Con-
gress of the Confederate States. He was appointed
Postmaster General in 1860 and Secretary of the Treas-
ury in 1865 in the Cabinet of Jefferson Davis, with
whom he was captured at the end of the war. After
an imprisonment at Boston, he was released and return-
ed to Texas where he practiced law and conducted his
farm. In 1875 Congress removed his political limita-
tions and he was re-elected to the U. S. House of
Representatives where he served until elected to the
U. S. Senate in 1887. In 1891 he resigned from the
Senate to become Chairman of the Texas Railroad
Commission and served in that ofHce until 1902 when
he voluntarily retired to private life at the age of
eighty-four. He died in 1906 the last survivor of the
His son, Jeff D. Reagan, is a civil engineer and at the
age of seventy-one lives in the family home. Fort Hous-
ton, Palestine, Texas, where he was born. He has
generously sent to Maryville College a copy of the 351-
page "Memoirs" written by his father and published
in 1906, a book now difficult to obtain. Also he has
sent the original copy of a letter of introduction written
by Mr. Augustus M. Foute of Maryville and carried
by John H. Reagan to Mississippi when he left Mary-
ville College "at the end of the second session" to earn
money to return to Maryville. (He did not return
but after working in Mississippi for sometime went on

ALUMNI IN THE ARMED FORCES
The Alumni Office is trying to compile a list of all
graduates and former students of Maryville College serv-
ing in the armed forces of the Nation. Neither the
College nor the Alumni Office has any way to know of
their entering the service except through reports sent
by them or others. We are not attempting to publish
a separate list of those in the armed forces at this time
although there are various references to them in other
parts of this Magazine. We are sure that there are
many more in the service now than are on our list and,
of course, more will be entering each month.
We are appealing to all alumni to send this informa-
tion about themselves or any others which they know
of. We hope to publish as complete a list as possible
at a later date.
Two service flags were placed in the chapel during
the first World War. The number of stars on these
flags when Armistice Day came on November 11, 1918
was six hundred fifty-eight. If the College should
find it helpful later to place a service flag in the chapel
for this second World War, the Alumni Association
would like to be able to furnish a full list of names.
Will you help?
FACULTY SONS IN THE ARMED FORCES
Three sons of Maryville College officers and faculty
are now serving in the armed forces of the United
John Vernon Lloyd, son of President and Mrs. Ralph
W. Lloyd, is an Aviation Cadet in training at Ellington
Field, Houston, Texas. Vernon, who graduated at
Maryville in the Class of 1941, was an employee of the
Aluminum Company of America until he enlisted in the
Army Air Corps soon after the entry of the United
States into the war. In March he was ordered to
Kelly Field for flight training and later was transferred
to Ellington Field.
Harold Eugene Orr, son of Professor and Mrs.
Horace E. Orr, is in the Medical Detachment of the
120th Infantry at Fort Jackson, South Carolina. Eugene
graduated at Maryville College in 1939 and entered the
graduate school of the University of North Carolina
where he received his M. A. degree and proceeded on
his work toward a Ph.D. degree in Biology. After the
declaration of war he enlisted in the Army Medical
Corps and was ordered to duty in February. He has
now completed his basic training and is taking special
Miles A. Snyder, son of Mrs. Grace Pope Snyder,
Supervisor of Women's Residence, is in an Army Radio
Mechanics School in Kansas City, Missouri. He grad-
uated in 1940 at the University of Illinois where Mrs.
Snyder was located before coming to Maryville, con-
ducted his own photographic studio until February of
this year when he enlisted in the Army and was as-
signed to the Signal Corps at Camp Crowder, Missouri.

INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS AT
All of the regular intercollegiate schedules, except
that in track, have been maintained during the year at
Maryville, although some institutions have found it
necessary because of the war's effect on enrolment and
transportation to curtail their intercollegiate programs.
Maryville did not attempt a track schedule because very
few colleges in this area have track teams and it did
not appear practicable this year to attempt a schedule
with the larger universities only. The same competition
difficulties exist in wrestling and swimming, but Mary-
ville had teams in both sports and tied with Vanderbilt
for the State wrestling title. Incidentally, this was the
twelfth State championship in wrestling won by Mary-
ville since that sport was introduced at the College on
an intercollegiate basis thirteen years ago.
Many colleges are canceling their football schedules
for next fall due to anticipated lack of players and
transportation. Maryville is planning to continue in-
tercollegiate football if it is at all possible. For both
the training and the interest it is a valuable war-time
activity. A full schedule has been made but it is ex-
pected that some of the teams will cancel. Maryville,
unlike most colleges, has been operating on a strictly
non-subsidisation basis, and therefore does not now
face some of the problems of colleges which have de-
pended on special recruiting of athletes. However, the
problems of enrolment and transportation are sure to
be much the same at all colleges.
An enlarged intramural program has been successful
this year and will be further extended next year, and
the physical education requirement for each student has
been increased from four to eight semesters.

GAMES AND MATCHES WON AND LOST
During the college year of 1941-1942 the team
records have been very creditable, although most of
the teams started with a large proportion of new men.
The football season was one of the best in years, with
eight wins and one loss. The wrestling record has
been referred to. The tennis team has won four
matches, tied one, and lost two, with one yet to be
played; it has won from all opponents except the Uni-
versity of Tennessee to whom two close matches were
dropped. At this writing the baseball games stand at
eight wins and three losses, with two games to be

IMPORTANT SYNOD MEETINGS ON THE
For the fourth successive summer the Synod of Ten-
nessee, with which Maryville College is officially con-
nected, will meet on our campus for the four days of
June 16 to 19. For the second successive year the
Synods of Alabama and Mississippi will join in this
But there are two new important facts about these
meetings this summer. First, this is the 125th anniver-
sary of the organization of the Synod of Tennessee.
Second, the three Synods of Tennessee, Alabama, and
Mississippi have adopted an overture to the General
Assembly, which meets May 21-27, asking for a union
of the three Synods into one Synod. If the General
Assembly takes favorable action the meeting of June
16-19 will be that of one united Synod.
The Women's Synodical Societies of Tennessee,
Alabama, and Mississippi join with the Synods in these
annual meetings and conferences. A strong program
of addresses, classes, and business sessions is arranged
by a committee of which President Lloyd of Maryville
College is chairman.
THE FEBRUARY MEETINGS
The sixty-sixth series of February Meetings, held
February 4-10, 1942, maintained the high standard of
former years. There was genuine interest and participa-
tion on the part of students, a sound spiritual note,
many decisions, and a campus-wide influence which will
be permanent. Rev. Dr. Clifford E. Barbour, Pastor
of the Second Presbyterian Church, Knoxville, Tennes-
see, served as the preacher as he had done also in 1938.
His leadership was vigorous, attractive, and effective.
Rev. Sidney E. Stringham, Pastor of the Shaw Avenue
Methodist Church, St. Louis, Missouri, was the very
acceptable leader of the singing for the twentieth year.

VISITING SPEAKERS AT THE COLLEGE
Visiting speakers and lecturers constitute one of the
very valuable features of a college program. Their
work supplements that of the resident faculty and of-
ficers. In the course of a college year at Maryville
there are many invited speakers in the various all-col-
lege meetings and in the YMCA, YWCA, Student
Volunteer, and student club meetings. Since Dr.
Stevenson's retirement from active preaching as College
Pastor the number of visiting ministers in the course of
a semester or year is considerably larger than formerly.
The College invites a guest speaker for each Wednes-
day morning and occasionally for the Sunday evening
Vespers, although usually the latter service is conducted
by one of the members of the Faculty.
In addition to the ministers who have conducted the
regular services there have been a number of other
speakers on special occasions, among them being Mr.
Charles Morgan, author and dramatic critic, of London,
England; Dr. Fred H. Hope, well-known Maryville Col-
lege missionary in Africa; Rev. Dr. William Barrow
Pugh, Stated Clerk of the Presbyterian General As-
sembly; Senor Ernesto Montenegro, of South America,
author and journalist; and Dr. B. O. Duggan, Commis-
sioner of Education of the State of Tennessee.
THE COLLEGE CATALOG
The Maryville College Bulletin for May each year is
the annual catalog issue. The 1942 Catalog is now
being printed. It contains the register of faculty and
students for the year just closing (1941-1942), and the
announcements for the coming year (1942-1943) which
will be the 124th in the College's history. The catalog
is not mailed regularly to all alumni, but will be sent to
all who request it.

of continuous work through the year, except for brief

plete graduation requirements in approximately three
years (actually two years and eight months) instead of
the usual four years. There are three periods in the
year, a Summer Session of twelve weeks and a Fall and
a Spring Semester of approximately seventeen weeks
A student may enter at the beginning of the Summer
Session or at the beginning of either the Fall or Spring
Semester. One entering as a freshman in June, 1942,
has an expectation of graduation in December, 1944;
one entering in September, 1942, has an expectation of
graduation in May, 1945, and so on; provided he at-
tends continuously. Many students anticipating some
type of war-time service will find the accelerated
Students not interested in the Accelerated Program
may follow the regular plan of four years of two
semesters each. Students may enroll for the Summer
Session whether or not they expect to proceed on the
