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 

full effort. 

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. 



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 
into bonds. 


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- 


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 
elected Secretary. 

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. 


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 



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 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 
9 to August 28, and be divided into two six-weeks 
terms. Each course oifered will be completed in one 
six-weeks term, classes meeting for eighty-minute 
periods six days a week. The credit for each of these 
six-weeks courses will be the same as given for a full 
semester. The normal schedule for a full-time student 
will be two courses and Physical Education. The 
normal credit a student will earn in the twelve-weeks 
session is twelve semester hours, and the maximum 
fourteen hours. 

A bulletin giving full information about the Summer 
Session has just been published and will be sent by the 
College to anyone requesting it. 

Freshmen may enter college at the beginning of the 
Summer Session, June 9, or at the beginmng of" the Fall 
Semester in September or the SpVing Semester in 


Weekly Broadcasts — 

The College is now in its second year broadcasting 
a weekly Sunday Vesper Service. This is not the 
Vespers held in the chapel each Sunday at 7:00 p.m., 
but is a special studio broadcast from the Fine Arts 
Studio beneath the chapel auditorium. The broadcasts 
are sent by the College's remote station over wires to 
Knoxville where they are transmitted by Radio Station 
WROL (620 on your dial). At present the broadcast 
is for the 30 minutes from 9:30 to 10:00 p.m. CWT. 
President Lloyd continues to conduct the service and 
speak briefly. The College choir under the direction of 
Associate Professor Ralph R. Colbert furnishes the 

The broadcasting program is under the general di- 
rection of James R. Smith, Public Relations and Alumni 
Executive Secretary. Operating at the controls this 
year are Dean F. D. McClelland and Assistant Pro- 
fessor A. F. Pieper. 

On The Mutual Broadcasting System — 

The Maryville College choir is to take part in a 
notable program at the plant of the Aluminum Company 
of America in Alcoa on May 14. At that time will be 
held the Navy "E" award ceremony in which the 
Alcoa works will be honored for their part in the na- 
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.

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: 

"I enclose dues for two years. I am not sure 

which two, but you will see by the last payment.

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. 


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 
Confederate Cabinet. 

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 
to Texas.) 

On the fly-leaf of the "Memoirs" is the following in- 

Fort Houston, Texas, 
September 15, 1941. 
Presented to Maryville College in appreciation 
of the early training and influence Maryville 
Seminary had upon the life and character of 
my father, John H. Reagan, the author. 

Jeff D. Reagan. 


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?

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 
technical training. 

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.

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. 
* * * 


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

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 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.

Alumni may find it useful to have available the fol- 
lowing principal dates in the Maryville College calendar 
for the coming year.

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 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. 


Maryville is one of a considerable number of colleges 
who, in response to the Government's suggestion, have 
adopted a war-time accelerated program. This is a plan 
of continuous work through the year, except for brief 
vacations, by which it is possible for students to com- 
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 
schedule advantageous. 

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 
accelerated schedule.
