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.

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.

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.

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. 


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. 



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. 


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, 

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. 


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 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.

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 



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 was 8? 


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. 

President Emeritus 


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.

feature story recently in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin. 
"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

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

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,

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. 



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. 


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 

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 


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.

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- 


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. Richard W. Post, 
Presbyterian missionary to Thailand; Rev. Dr. Court- 
land Van Deusen, Presbyterian missionary to China; 
Dr. Walter Clothier, Presbyterian missionary to Africa; 
Rev. Alex. R. Batchelor of Orlando, Florida; Rev. C. 
E. Cathey of Nashville; Rev. Dr. Robert J. Black of 
Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; Rev. C. McCoy Franklin of 
Madisonville, Tennessee; Rev. Dr. Robert F. Caverlee 
of Fredericksburg, Virginia; Rev. Dr. John A. McAfee, 
Rev. Dr. W. H. Crothers, Rev. Dr. W. T. Bartlett, 
Rev. Dr. Geo. E. Davies, and Mr. Clyde B. Emert, all 
of Maryville. 



In compliance with the request of the War Depart- 
ment, we are not publishing information which will 
identify location of any units of the Armed Forces. 
Unfortunately all the service men have not provided 
us with addresses but those addresses we have we 
shall be glad to give to anyone upon request, or shall 
be glad to forward mail addressed to this Office for 
that purpose.

The election of seniors of the Class of 1943 to the 
Scholarship Honor Society reflects the accelerated pro- 
gram. 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 

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,

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 

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 

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 

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. P. 1 2 

Maryville 7 Tusculum
