Dear Fellow Alumni: It is as president of the College that I am asked to write this page; but it is inescapable that I should write as an alumnus of the College also. Both of these relationships influence my interest in the developments of these days and in sharing with other interested alumni current news about the College. Various articles elsewhere in this issue of the Alumni Magazine contain considerable such news and I need not retell it in detail here. But I am prompted to summa- rize and comment on several important recent events. Revised Physical Training Requirements In view of the increased national emphasis on physical fitness we increased last fall the graduation requirements in Physical Education from four to eight semesters. For this spring semester we adopted in general the Army-Navy requirements, increasing the weekly sched' ule from two to five hours for men and from two to three hours for women with additional electives for women. There are "condition- ing" exercises given to large groups and intramural sports have a larger place than ever before at Maryville. For lack of time and transportation intercollegiate sports have been much curtailed. All of this represents adjustment to war-time conditions and tasks. Men Leave College for Military Service Hundreds of Maryville alumni and other former students have been entering the armed forces. Some students enlisted or were inducted last year, but this year the number has increased rapidly even though students of the enlisted reserves attending Maryville have had an advantage this winter over those at most colleges because of the closing of our first semester in December and the ruling that most of those in the reserves would be allowed to remain until the end of the next semester in May. Yet a large number of men have gone into military service or some related training. We had 336 men students two years ago this month, 287 one year ago, and 250 the first semester of this year, but there are only 152 men students actually on the campus now, making the loss of men in the two years 184 or 55%. With the draft age at 18, most occupational and educational deferments being can- celled, and the enlisted reserves being called, there cannot possibly be many boys in any college next fall. The Chapel still appears well filled each morning, and our three womens' dormitories are full, but there is not the usual overflow and there are fewer women students than usual from the town. Unprecedented op- portunities for employment are reducing sharply and will doubtless continue to reduce the number of girls ap- plying for admission to colleges. There were 425 women students at Maryville College two years ago this month, 416 one year ago, 389 the first semester this year, and 360 as this is written; this represents a decrease of 65 women (15%) in two years. During this year three of our faculty men have gone to the armed forces: John A. Davis, Assistant Pro- fessor of Physical Education, in December; Archie F. Pieper, Assistant Professor of Political Science, in January; and Frank D. McClelland, Dean of Students, in March. The loss of these and George F. Fischbach, Assistant Professor of Physical Education, and Mary Rachel Armstrong, Assistant Professor of Home Economics, who took other positions, has increased the tasks of those who remain, but the general program is going well and hopefully. J\OJt^ /Un>~^Lo ^S^ ^C^K^L^J t\^ THREE THE ARMY AIR FORCES COME TO COLLEGE On February 5 the War Manpower Commission re- leased to the press a list of institutions which had been approved for the training programs of the Army, Navy, or Marine Corps. Maryville College was one of those designated for the Army Air Forces College Training (Preflight) Program. Events moved rapidly and the first contingent of soldiers arrived on the campus dur- ing the first week of March. There are now several hundred men (Army rules forbid publication of num- bers) in uniform, under rigid discipline, commanded and given military training by Army Air Forces officers. The College has entered into a contract with the Gov- ernment to provide housing, meals, medical care, and physical training, and to give instruction in seven pre- scribed subjects. Thus comes a new experience in Maryville College history, the brief and limited S. A. T. C. program of World War I not being comparable to the present plan. And instead of a falling off in population at the Col- lege, every possible space into which a bed can well be put, including two gymnasium floors in Bartlett, is filled. With the full College program and the new Army Air Forces College Training Program going forward side by side, life and work on the Maryville College c"ampus are interesting and vigorous even though a little com- plicated and accompanied by some new problems. We sincerely hope that as our thoughts and prayers follow Maryville Alumni into civilian and military life all around the world, so their thoughts and prayers will follow these war-time educational tasks on the College Campus at Maryville. ^ $ ^ NEW TEACHERS FOR ARMY PROGRAM It has been necessary to engage several additional teachers for full time or part time to handle classes in the Army Air Forces instruction program. Ben W. Chambers, graduated at Maryville Col- lege in 1931 and recently has been Principal of the Walland, Tennessee, High School. He came to the College March 1 as a full-time teacher of Physics. Another full schedule ofj Physics classes has been handled since April 1 by Arthur S. Bushing of the Class of 1943, who is president of the Senior Class and will be enrolled in classes until he receives his degree. Medical Aid classes (based on the First Aid course of the Red Cross) have been taught since March 1 two nights each week by Mrs. Queener of the Mary- ville faculty, and four men of the staff of the Alumnium Company of America: Andrew L. Alexander, '34, Harry Blankenship, 'Ex. '28, Allen A. Surratt, and Ned J. Tucker. Guy W. Sneed, '24, Principal of the Alcoa High School, is assisting Coach Honaker each afternoon in the Physical Training program. 1943 REUNION CLASSES 1893- -Fifty-year Class '04, '05, '06, '07, '08 -Twenty-five-year Class '23, '24, '25, '26 1933 — Ten-year Class 1918- ARMY PROGRAM AT MARYVILLE On an earlier page in this issue reference is made to the establishment of the Army Air Forces College Training Program at Maryville College. The officers and non-commissioned staff came in the latter part of February and the first contingent of men soon after the first of March. The College has nothing to do with selection of the men sent here for training. The number to fill the quota are sent by the Army and placed in charge of the commanding officer and his staff assigned here. Be- fore assignment to the College the men have been in the Army at least long enough to be "processed," are outfitted and in uniform, and are on army pay. They are not "aviation cadets," who form a special classifica- tion in training for "wings" and commissions, but are privates in the Air Corps who have been accepted as candidates for appointment as aviation cadets. The trainees here at the College are sometimes called "air crew students," although there does not yet seem to be a generally used name for them. Their quarters (now in half of Carnegie Hall and all of Bartlett), meals (now in the Alumni Addition of Pearsons Dining Hall), and classes are separate. They march in formation to all meals, classes, and other ap- pointments, spend the evenings in supervised study in Anderson Hall classrooms, go to bed early at night and get up early in the morning. They do not leave the campus except at weekends. After arrival they spent the first weeks in quarantine but are now having op- portunity to associate some with our students at off hours which, however, are not many. The instructional program conducted by Maryville faculty includes classes in Physics, Mathematics, English, History, Geography, Civil Air Regulations, and Medical Aid. The training period is designed in general on a five months' plan. A limited amount of instruction in flying is given each man by the Government at the Air- port during the latter part of the training period. The present commanding officer of the Training De- tachment at Maryville College is 1st Lieutenant Donald B. Ladd, a young man six feet and five inches tall, from Niagara Falls, N. Y., a graduate of Michigan State Col- lege. He and the officers with him are men of high personal standards and have won the genuine respect of Maryville faculty and students. SUMMER ON THE CAMPUS The Maryville College campus is due for the most active summer of its history, as may be seen from the following schedule: Army Air Forces College Training Program will proceed continuously College Summer Session — June 1 to August 20 Synod-Synodical of Mid-South — June 22-24 Senior Young People's Conference for the Pres- bvteries of Union and Chattanooga — July 5-10 Intermediate Camp for the Presbyteries of Union and Chattanooga — July 19-24 It will not be easy to handle the Synod and Young People's Conference and Camp, but it can be done suc- cessfully and the College wishes to render this service to the Church. FOUR COMMENCEMENT The Commencement program for this year is planned on approximately the same schedule as that of last year. The calendar is given elsewhere. How many visitors can come is not known but it is hoped that many may be present in spite of traveling difficulties. A considerable number of out-of-state people visit the army students now on the campus. There will be one marked difference in the roster oi graduates, due to the accelerated program. There were 36 seniors who completed their graduation requirements at the end of the Fall semester, reducing that much the number to participate in the graduation exercises May 17. However, they are counted as part of the Class of 1943, as well are those who complete their course at the end of the coming Summer Session. RECENT FACULTY LOSSES Dr. Frank D. McClelland, ex-T8, Dean of Students since 1937, left the College on leave of absence March 1? to enter the military service. He was an officer in the Marines during World War I, and was decorated for gallantry on the Western Front. He has now been commissioned a captain in the Marine Corps and as- signed to important duties at Marine Headquarters in Washington, D. C. Mrs. McClelland and their two sons continue to make their home in Maryville. Archibald F. Pieper, '36, Assistant Professor of Political Science at Maryville College since 1939, left at the end of the first semester to enter the Marine Corps as a candidate for officers training and is now at Quan- tico, Virginia. Mrs. Pieper (Mary Gladys Brown, '36) has a position with the TVA and is living at Norris, Tennessee. John A. Davis ("J- D."), '30, Assistant Professor of Physical Education and Assistant Coach at Maryville College since 1940, left at the end of the first semester to enter the Army, and since that time has been at Camp Phillips, Kansas. He is at present on special duty as one of the directors of athletics in the camp. Mary Rachel Armstrong, Assistant Professor of Home Economics since 1934, left March 1 to accept a position as Nutritionist at the Wolf Creek Ordnance Plant of the Procter and Gamble Defense Corporation at Milan, Tennessee. LIVING ENDOWMENT To date the response of alumni to the bulletin sent out by the Association on the Living Endowment is gratifying. If pledges and contributions continue to come into the Alumni Office as they have during the first ten days after the bulletin was mailed, the Associa- tion will have an interesting and heartening report for the October issue of the Magazine. Pledges have ranged from five to fifty dollars a year, some being for five years and some for an indefinite period. Contributions have been received in the form of War Stamps and Bonds, money orders, and checks. It is hoped that many others will yet be heard from and that many War Savings Stamp books are now being filled for ultimate mailing to the Alumni Office. THE PRESBYTERIAN GENERAL ASSEMBLY The 155th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the U. S. A. will meet in Detroit on Thurs- day, May 27, and the days following. All Presbyteries have been asked by the General Council to elect only one half the constitutional number of commissioners and will undoubtedly comply with this request. In that case the General Assembly will be only half its usual size, with approximately 450 commissioners. This will mean fewer Maryville College alumni pres- ent, and since Detroit is not in a very thickly populated Maryville alumni area and this is a difficult travel year, there will hardly be a normal number of visitors. Plans are being made, however, for a Maryville Breakfast somewhere in Detroit on either Friday or Saturday morning of the Assembly. Two years ago at St. Louis there was a large crowd at the Maryville Breakfast. A year ago in Milwaukee the number was comparatively small but the "quality" was good. This year the number is sure to be limited, but there are Maryville alumni at every Assembly and they like to get together. All are asked to watch for posters and any other an- nouncements. President Lloyd of the College will be at the Assembly as Chairman of the Department of Church Cooperation and Union for which he will be making the annual reports to the Assembly. He hopes alumni and also parents of Maryville students will look him up. =& % # BENEFIT LUNCHEON AND APRON SALE SUCCESSFUL In the October issue of the Alumni Magazine an- nouncement was made of the Second Annual Benefit Luncheon and Apron Sale, to be held at the College on December 5, 1942. It proved to be a great success in spite of the fact that it came the very first week of gasoline rationing in Tenne'ssee and on the day of a heavy snow storm. There were 134 women at the luncheon, from which the gross income was $107; there were about 150 aprons donated and sold for $87.70; gifts of money totaled $185.19. Thus the gross income was $379.89. The expenses were: to Dining Hall for luncheon $82.64.; for printing, mailing, and decorations $29.20; total ex- penses, $111.89. Thus the net amount realized for the Dormitory Improvement Fund was $268, as compared with $206.26 realized the year before. Due to conditions this year there were fewer at the luncheon than last year, but more responded by send- ing aprons and gifts of money. This increased interest is cause for appreciation on the part of the committee in charge and of the College. The money of last year was used toward the new bathroom on the first floor of Baldwin Hall. As all know, it is impossible to purchase plumbing fixtures now for further improvement. Therefore, the $268 has been deposited with the Treasurer of Maryville College subject to order of the committee, made up of a number of alumnae and friends of the College, when conditions permit work to proceed. Margaret B. Lloyd (Mrs. Ralph W.) Chairman, Benefit Luncheon and Apron Sale Committee FIVE RETIREMENT OF LIBRARIAN ELLIS President Lloyd has announced that Libra- rian Horace L. Ellis has asked to be per- mitted to retire from active service at the close of the present college year, May 17, since he was seventy years old last Novem- ber 20. Mr. Ellis, or "Pro- fessor Ellis" as he is generally called by those who knew him through the many years he was a pro- fessor, will be greatly missed from the Col- lege from which he was graduated in 1898 and to which he has given 31 years of service. After his graduation in 1898, Mr. Ellis taught in the Preparatory Department for two years, taught in other institutions 14 years, came back to Maryville Col- lege in 1914 as Principal of the large Preparatory De- partment and Professor of Education, and became College Librarian after the closing of the Preparatory Department in 1925. He returned to Maryville from Carson-Newman College where he had been Professor of Latin seven years, during three of which he was also Dean and during one of which he was Treasurer. Mr. Ellis has been in educational work 47 years, and at Maryville College 31 of those years. He is now to make his year-round home at Burrville, Tennessee, where he has long had his summer home. ^ & % DR. WILSON'S EIGHTY-FIFTH BIRTHDAY Dr. Wilson was 8? PROFESSOR ELLIS years old on February 17, 1943. He is more surprised than any- body that he has lived so long. He is up and around each day, but has not been able for some time to leave his home or to do any work. After he re- tired from the presi- dency of the College in 1930 he did some very valuable writing for a number of years but gradually came to the place where he could no longer write or carry on his ac- customed study or in- terests. He makes his home on Indiana Ave- nue, Maryville, with his daughter Olive and her family. DR. WILSON President Emeritus OTHER NOTABLE BIRTHDAYS Mrs. John Walker, who has made her home at "Morningside" in the College Woods for over ten years, celebrated her ninety-first birthday on April 9. Many friends greeted her and the College Choir went to her home for a surprise informal concert. She was in excellent health and spirits. Rev. Dr. William Patton Stevenson, College Pastor Emeritus, was eighty-two on December 24, believe it or not. He no longer plays golf because of a lame shoul- der, but he drives his car as always, preaches occasional- ly, keeps the Woods in order, reads much, and is the same gracious and cheerful companion whom Maryville students of the past quarter of a century have known. Miss "Molly" Caldwell, Dean of Women Emeritus, will be eighty on September 11 of this year. She lives at her home, 213 Miller Street, Maryville. While not able to leave home very often, she attends church and some of the services at the College Chapel, greets her friends who call.

"At present he is working on a group of canvases to be hung in the library at a Hawaiian air base. For a studio he uses an empty office at post headquarters. His canvases, besides being in demand among officers and men at the post, are widely distributed among friends in Tennessee, Arkansas, Georgia, and Texas." The Alumni Office has just received a letter from James W. "Yankee" Lewis mailed from Quibyshev, Russia, enclosing his alumni dues and stating that he is receiving the Alumni Magazine. "Yankee" has been in the U. S. Foreign Service since graduation. Charles W. Muir has entered the Army as a chaplain. Robert Edwin Rummel was recently a visitor on the Campus on his way to Camp Murphy, Florida, where he is a lieutenant in the Signal Corps. SEVEN HERE AND THERE WITH ALUMNI— (Continued) Leslie Webb has written his father, E. L. Webb, Si\, that he is "doing fine physically" but that he has not seen anything that he likes like East Tennessee. He attended the Christmas service in Westminster Abbey for American soldiers which was pictured in the No- vember 11 issue of Life. He saw Ernest Coldwell, '35, in London just before they left for North Africa. "Les" is in a tank destroyer battalion. He says their main oc- cupation now is trading with the Arab natives. One day he traded an old pocket watch (of the dollar va- riety) for a piece of sausage. A buddy traded some cigarettes for eggs. They went off together, cooked the sausage and eggs "and had the best meal since leaving the States." A letter from Mrs. Harry Wood, Jr. (Marjorie Sal- mons, '34) reports that Harry was in Pearl Harbor during the Japanese Hit;, but was not injured. On the same day that Patty Ann was born, Nov. 3, 1942, Harry underwent an appendectomy in Honolulu. In addition to the demanding work of a chaplain, he had command of a first aid station during battle and as- sisted with operations. He has been ordered to shore duty on the North American coast where he will be joined by the family. His picture was in the February 18, 1943 issue of The Presbyterian. 1934 Arthur Gordon Courtenay is a chaplain in the Canadian Army. Thelma lies is working for TVA, Norris, Tennessee. Howard Kipp has accepted the pastorate of the First Presbyterian Church in Connersville, Indiana. The Alumni Office has received two letters from C T. "Tillie" Goodwin: "February 3, 1943. Alumni As- sociation: Just to notify you that another of your sons has graduated from 6. T. S. at Miami Beach and the School for Special Service at Ft. George G. Meade, Maryland, and is in Australia doing his part in winning the War. Hope to see my old classmates of '34 at the next reunion. P. S. I would like to hear from members of the Class of '34." Letter dated February 23, 1943; "To Alumni Association: If you know of any former students of Maryville College in Australia I would appreciate it very much if you could send me their addresses. Not one graduate of Maryville have I met. I have been in New Guinea where I found con- ditions much better than I expected. There is much to tell but until the War is over many experiences will remain dormant in the minds of many. I would like to say 'Hello'' to my friends, particularly the Class of , 34." ' Stroud Gwynn is coaching athletics in connection with the Cadet Training Program at Cumberland Uni- versity. Richard K. "Dick" Orr has recently completed the Chaplains 1 course at Cambridge, Mass. Mrs. Orr (Helen Rusk, Ex. '36) and their daughter, Carolyn, are at Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. John E.

It has been reported that James Herman "Maggie" Magee is convalescing at an army hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. 1936 Walter Coker has been made head coach at Everett High School. A letter has just been received from Mr. John P. Downes, father of Robert D. Downes, saying Robert was reported missing July 15, 1942, and they have not heard anything from him since then. Robert joined the Army Air Corps in April, 1941, and was in serv- ice on Bataan. Robert K. Godfrey is in Washington, D. C. Word has been received from Mrs. George F. Greiner saying George is somewhere overseas. Elizabeth Christine Hope, Ex. '36, sailed for Africa in May, 1941, and is stationed at Elat Station of the West Africa Mission. She is still on the field and will be due a furlough in the summer of 1944. William S. "Bill" Quigley has gone to New York City to direct a Greek orphanage in preparation for postwar reconstruction in Greece. Harold J. Quigley is now pastor of the Zion Presby- terian Church in Wheeling, Illinois. Stuart "Stu" Snedeker has been assigned as a chaplain to an Artillery Group "deep in the heart of Texas." Stu says the work is very demanding but extremely in- teresting and that the men are very eager for real Gospel messages there in the services. His wife and son, Edgar, are with him. The Office has just received a letter from James H. "Jim" Wade telling something of his work and family. Soon after graduating from Union Seminary, Rich- mond, in 1939, he married Mary Elizabeth Mulcay of Augusta, Georgia, whom he met at the Training School in Richmond. Since 1939 he has been at the Sand- ston, Virginia, Presbyterian Church. Sandston is a suburb of Richmond. 1937 Mrs. James P.

ALUMNI DUES The Alumni Office would like to have an expression from members of the Association concerning the dues notices recently mailed. Is this new style envelope a help in the payment of alumni dues? With money so plentiful this is the year to double the number paying dues and to begin to provide for expansion of the program. The one cent postage on this year's dues notices will be paid by Atlantic Monthly for the privilege of en- closing their magazine advertisement. The Association will receive a commission on each subscription handled by the Alumni Office. ELEVEN DEATHS AMONG ALUMNI AND FORMER STUDENTS Rev. Silas Edward Henry, D.D., Class of 1883, died Febr 1943, at the Methodist Hospital, Inch anapolis, Indiana, at the age of 75. He was born in East Tennessee, was graduated at Maryville College and Union Theological Seminary, New York, and served many years as a pastor in Missouri and elsewhere. In recent years he has lived in or near Indianapolis and is survived there by two daughters. In 1938, the fiftieth anniversary of his graduation, Maryville College con- ferred upon him the honorary degree of Doctor of Divinity. Rev. Robert Andrew Parham, Class of 1894, died at his home in Knoxville, Tennessee, on January 5, 1943, at the age of 76. Upon graduation from Maryville College he was associated for a time with his father and brothers in the Riverside Woolen Mills, Knoxville, later entering the Methodist ministry. He served pastorates in Scott and Knox counties, his last pastorate being one in South Knoxville from which he retired to the home where he died. Minerva Isabel Freeman, Class of 1897, died at Dover, New Jersey, on October 5, 1942. She was one of the first women of Dover to attend college and after her graduation became a teacher in the public schools there. At the time of her death she was the oldest teacher in point of service in the Dover schools, having taught Latin there for forty-five years. Major General Hugh Matthews, Ex. '03, died April 9, 1943, at the U. S. Naval Hospital, Bethesda, Mary- land, at the age of 67. General Matthews was a native of Loudon County, Tennessee, and both he and his brother, Brigadier General Calvin B. Matthews, who died in 1939, attended Maryville College but did not graduate, leaving college to enter the Army. General Hugh Matthews has served in many parts of the world, received various decorations for his service in World War I, and was Quartermaster General of the U. S. Marine Corps for eight years. In 1937 he reached the compulsory retirement age and he and Mrs. Matthews came back to Tennessee and established their home near Loudon, not far from Maryville. He gave an ad- dress in Voorhees Chapel in November this year. Other members of Gen. Matthews' family who attended school at Maryville College are Stephen Mitchell, Sue Marie (Mrs. Simpson) who died at the Loudon home on April 15, 1943, Winifred, and Roy Lafayette. Arthur Roll McCammon, Ex. '05, died at his home in Maryville on April 9, 1943. He had been a promin- ent business man in Maryville and was mayor of the city for 10 years before his retirement in 1939. His daughter, Jean (now Mrs. Ernest Koella, Jr.), is a member of the Class of 1941, and his son, A. R. Mc- Cammon, Jr., attended Maryville College. Andrew E. McCulloch, Ex. '08, died February 28, 1943, at his home in Maryville. His jewelry store has been a leading business house in Maryville for over a third of a century, Mr. McCulloch, at his death, being the senior business man on Maryville's Main Street. He was active in the New Providence Presbyterian Church and the Masonic Lodge. Mrs. McCulloch (Freddie Goddard) is a member of the Class of 1904. His daughter, Eleanor, who died in November, 1941, and his sons, S. Lloyd and Albert F., attended Maryville College. Nannie" Maness, Class of 1909, died in Sebring, Florida, on February 21, 1943. She was with the Sal- vation Army for many years until her retirement be- cause of the failure of her health. Since that time she has lived in Sebring where many men and women on the retired list of the Salvation Army make their homes. Chaplain (Colonel) Frank Lewis Miller, of the Class of 1914, was killed in the recent plane crash in Iceland in which Lieut. General Frank M. Andrews, Bishop Adna W. Leonard of the Methodist Church, and eleven others also were killed. After his graduation from Maryville in 1914, Chap- lain Miller entered Princeton Theological Seminary, graduating in 1917. In 1925 he attended the Chaplains' School at Fort Leavenworth and in 1927-1928 Columbia University, receiving there the M.A. degree. He served as a chaplain during the first World War and in 1920, after two years in the pastorate, became a chaplain in the Regular Army. Since 1940 he had been Chief of the Plans and Training Division in the Office of the Chief of Chaplains, in Washington. He became a colonel in February, 1942. Last May Maryville College awarded him the honorary degree of Doctor of Divini- ty. At that time, General Arnold, Chief of Chaplains, wrote that "his ability, character, and record of ac- complishment make him highly worthy of the honor you propose to confer upon him." Others wrote: "Besides conducting the usual religious exercises he was the friend, brother, and advisor of the Command. In time of trouble he was always first on the scene. . . He has risen rapidly and is outstanding among the intellectual leaders of his branch of the United States Army." "Colonel Miller has written himself into the lives of men the world over to their everlasting benefit." Those who attended Commencement will remember him as the speaker at the Commencement Vespers. Chaplain Miller is survived by his wife and three children; one son, Frank Lewis Miller, III, attended Maryville College for two and a half years, 1940-1943, and is now at the George Washington University School of Medicine. THE FEBRUARY MEETINGS The sixty-seventh series of February Meetings, held February 3-11, 1943, proved to be the channel of great blessing to the College as so many series have been be- fore. The established plan and schedule were followed, with no curtailment because of the War. There were two services a day in the Chapel for nine days, with large attendance both morning and night. The private conference schedule was filled. Several forums held after the evening services were crowded. The preacher, Rev. Dr. William M. Elliott, Jr., of Atlanta, was a most effective leader, his preaching be- ing of the highest order. Students, faculty, and visitors heard him with enthusiasm and spiritual profit. Rev. Dr Sidney E. Stringham, of St. Louis, leading the sing- ing for the twenty-first year, added greatly to the services as always. TWELVE EASTER SUNRISE SERVICE For the sixth successive year an Easter service was held at sunrise in the College Woods amphitheatre. The morning was a beautiful one and a large crowd on the hillside took part in the impressive service with the President, Dr. Lloyd, the College Pastor Emeritus, Dr. Stevenson, the Choir Director, Mr. Vine, and the Choir, who in robes were at the foot of a great white cross built on the grass covered stage of the Amphi- theatre. The sun came up over the Great Smoky Mountains beyond the cross during the service. But the program had begun two hours before sun- rise. A group of girls from the Home Economics de- partment arrived at the President's House at 3:45 a.m. to help in the serving of rolls, coffee, and orange juice to the band, choir, faculty, and guests who arrived at 4:00, 4:45, and 5:00 o'clock respectively. At 4:30 the band began its playing, first several trumpets from the Anderson bell tower, then the whole band at the center of the campus and finally groups of the band at points along the way to the Amphitheatre as hundreds of people walked or rode into the Woods. This Sun- rise Service is one of the more recently established but one of the most impressive programs of each Mary- ville College year. PAINTING OF THE LIBRARY One of the most satisfying improvements made at the College during recent years was the painting of the interior of the spacious Library in Thaw Hall. The work was done under "Brownie's" supervision during the extended Christmas vacation this year. The walls and columns of the large main reading room and the walls of the front stack room and of the three lobbies are a mural gray, a color just a shade off cream. The ceilings and beams of the main room are ivory. The whole impression is one of strong, clean beauty. This was a needed improvement because the interior of the Library had never been painted. When the building was erected in 1920-1921 the walls were smooth white plaster and painting was not immediately necessary. But during more than twenty years many discolorations from radiators and general use had ap- peared and detracted from an otherwise impressive in- terior. The great sige (the reading room is 170 feet long, 66 feet deep, and 20 feet high) and the fact that its painting was not absolutely essential had postponed its redecoration. A large proportion of the money with which the work has now been done came through sale of the historical map made by Nathalia Wright, '3 3, which was de- scribed on page ten of the October issue of the Alumni Magazine. Miss Wright, who is Assistant in the Library, and Miss Grierson, Assistant Librarian, both did a great deal of work distributing the maps and generously advanced the money for those yet to be sold. (Alumni may order maps through the Alumni Office for fifty cents.) The College received from them $450 to apply on the total painting expense of $684. THE SUMMER SESSION For the second consecutive year Maryville College has announced a Summer Session. It is part of the Accelerated Program in which a student may take his full college course in an actual time of two years and eight months if he attends continuously except for brief vacations before and after Summer Sessions and at Christmas. The 1943 Summer Session, like that of last year, will be divided into two terms of six weeks each. Each course taken is completed in six weeks, classes meeting daily and for extended periods. A full semester of credit is given for each such course. Normally a student can take two courses each six-weeks term. The dates set are: First term, June 1 to July 10; second term, July 12 to August 20. A student may attend either term or both terms. ^ H* % RADIO BROADCASTS After an absence of several months Maryville Col- lege is "on the air" again until after Commencement. Each Sunday afternoon from 4:30 to 4:55 p.m., over Station WROL of Knoxville (Dial 620), there is the Maryville College Radio Vespers conducted by Presi- dent Ralph W. Lloyd and the college choir of fifty voices under the direction of Assistant Professor Richard W. Vine. These programs are under the supervision of James R. Smith, Alumni and Public Relations Secre- tary. SPEAKERS AT THE COLLEGE Each Wednesday morning at the Chapel service and each Sunday evening at Vespers there is an address or sermon, and of course there are other addresses in the many group meetings during a college year. At most of the Sunday Vespers the speaker is one of the facul- ty or someone from the community, but there are usually out-of-town speakers on Wednesdays and oc- casionally at Vespers. Visiting speakers so far this year have included the following: Rev. Dr. Joseph A. Vance of Detroit; Gov- ernor Prentice Cooper of Tennessee; Maj. Gen. Hugh Matthews; Rev. Dr. Joseph M. Broady of Birmingham; Rev. Dr. J. McDowell Richards of Atlanta, President of Columbia Theological Seminary and Vice-President of the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America; Mr. Baen Chu of China; Dr. Sigmund Skard, formerly Royal Librarian of Norway; Rev. Dr. Frank H. Caldwell, President of the Louisville Presby- terian Seminary; President John McSween of Tusculum College; Rev. Dr. John O. Gross of Nashville; Rev. Dr. C. E. Barbour of Knoxville; Rev.

From the group of thirty-six graduating in De- cember four were elected to membership and recently from the group of approximately eighty May graduates six were elected. There is still a possibility that one or two might be chosen from the group graduating in August. The December group were Carl Alette of Phila- delphia, Pennsylvania, a Music major, now in the army, who transferred after his junior college course at Girard College; Irma H. Criswell, of Miami, Florida, an Eco- nomics major, who since graduation has been working as assistant in the Personnel Office of the College; Frances E. Sisk, of Maryville, a French major, daugh- ter of Dr. Augustus Sisk of the Mathematics depart- ment, now employed at the Alcoa Plant of the Aluminum Company of America; and Evelyn A. Williams, of Maryville, a History major, now in the Office of the Chief of the Signal Corps, Washington, D. C. The six members of the May graduating group are Jean Barnes, of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, a Psychol- ogy major, and in her senior year Editor-in-Chief of the Highland Echo; Clyde R. Brown, of East Water- ford, Pennsylvania, a History major, and retiring President of the Y.M.C.A.; Sidney W. Duke, of Arlington, Texas, a Chemistry major, now entered at the School of Medicine of Northwestern University, in Chicago; Josephine Gillette, of Vineland, New Jersey, a Mathematicsi major; Marjorie Gugger, of Dunmore. Pennsylvania, a Chemistry major, who did her first two years of college work at Marywood College, Scranton, Pennsylvania; and Jean Patterson, of Orangeville, Pennsylvania, an English major, this year President of the Y.W.C.A. The Recognition Ceremony was held at the regular chapel hour on Wednesday, April 27. The speaker was President Everett Derryberry, of Tennessee Polytechnic Institute, Cookeville, a former star athlete and honors student of the University of Tennessee, and for three and a half years a student at Oxford University as Rhodes Scholar from Tennessee. Also there should be mentioned here that at the November meeting of the Society Jackson C. Kramer, a member of the Class of 1942, graduating last August, was elected to membership. Jack is a native of Mary- ville, a Political Science major, and is now in training as a Photographic Laboratory Commander in the Ground Crew of the Army Air Corps at Boca* Raton, Florida. * * * THE ATHLETIC PROGRAM The pressure of the accelerated and military pro- grams, the difficulties of travel, and the steady with- drawal of men from college have necessitated a con- siderable reduction in intercollegiate athletics and an increase in intramurals and other types of physical training. The College had a good football team chiefly of younger men, a team better than the won and loss columns indicate. The schedule of necessity included more teams than usual of the larger conferences. Maryville won two games: from Hiwassee College of Madisonville 33-0 and 32-13. We lost six games: to Newberry 25-7, to Chattanooga 51-7, to Milligan 19-0, to Tennessee State Teachers 19-12, to Appalachian 20-7, and to Morehead 18-6. There were no basketball and swimming teams this year, wrestling being given the right of way in the winter season. The wrestling team, as usual, defeated all comers. Maryville won matches from Appalachian State, Uni- versity of Tennessee, Georgia Tech and Georgia Pre- Flight. ' One match was lost to the University of Tennessee. It was decided to omit varsity baseball and track this spring for the reasons already mentioned and the additional reason that the grounds must be used daily for military drill and calisthenics of the Army Air Crew students, and our physical directors are busy with the special wartime army and college physical training program. However, there is a tennis team playing a limited schedule and doing very well. It has won all of its matches played so far: Maryville 6 Sewanee 1 Maryville 5 T.
