Dear Fellow Alumni:
There are a number of important matters before the College
just now. I would like to talk a little with you about them.
Closing Another Year
The first is one which, of course, seems more important each
Spring to administrative officers, teachers, and students at the College
than it does to alumni away from the College. It is the closing of
another year. In some ways it is closing two years: one the academic
year at Commencement, which this time is May 15; the other the
fiscal year on May 31. There are many preparations to be made
before both of these dates. This year has a special significance be-
cause it is the 125th. The date of Maryville's founding was
October 19, 1819.
The number of graduates on Commencement Day will be about
65. But 11 who completed their graduation requirements last Decem-
ber and about 6 who can finish in the coming Summer will be listed
also in the Class of 1944. Thus the total will be about 80, which
is 40 smaller than the average of the past decade, largely because there are only 19 boys in the 80, com-
pared to 60 boys in the Class of 1938.
Closing the business year is a very important matter and closing it in the "black" even more important.
We hope to be in the "black" this year.
Closing the Army Program
On March 31 the Army Air Forces announced a plan to discontinue the College Training Program after
June 30. A month earlier the Army had announced the closing of the program in 70 of the 151 colleges
and universities where it was operating. Maryville's was one of those to continue. The later announcement
that all of the other 81 would also be closed came as a surprise. It was accompanied by a statement that the
training of so many Army fliers does not now seem necessary.
Maryville College, like the 150 other colleges which have had the AAF program and those which have
had the ASTP program, faces a new set of problems for next year. Thus far during the war, although most
civilian men students have gone, Maryville College has had a capacity combined civilian and army population.
The College and its officers and faculty have given more than a year of hard work and, we believe, of valu-
able direct service to the war effort and we are grateful for the opportunity.
Unless some unforeseen change comes meanwhile, next September will find the soldiers gone and all but
a very small number of civilian boys gone. That will mean a small student population for Maryville and
some serious budget questions to answer.
A Full Program Next Year
However, there will be a full college program in operation. Our several hundred women students are
just as important as would be men students. It is in fact more essential now than in ordinary times for girls
to be given the full benefits of college training. They alone are free to take it. The coming years will
depend especially upon them. Maryville will make such adjustments as are necessary for the new conditions
but will offer the advantages of its long history, high standing, and strong faculty to all students who enroll.

The 1944 Commencement
Although these are war days, travel is difficult, and the graduating class smaller than in peace times,
the Maryville College Commencement season was a very pleasant and satisfactory one.
It began with the Senior Chapel Service of Wednesday, May 10. In addition to the program by mem-
bers of the class, there was the annual exchange of sittings. This is a ceremony in which the Senior Class
turns its seats in the Chapel over to the Junior Class. On Friday of Commencement week there was the annual
public presentation of prises and awards and on Saturday morning there was a program of drama and music.
These events were surprisingly well attended in view of the circumstances. On Saturday afternoon the annual
reception of President and Mrs. Lloyd was held at the President's House for alumni, seniors, parents, faculty,
The Alumni Dinner of Saturday night was a very successful occasion, with 184 persons present, which
taxed the facilities provided since only 150 made reservations. A unique and interesting address was given by
Dr. Andrew Wade Morton, '01, of San Francisco, on the subject, "A Doctor's Life."
Dr. Morton was driven to become a physician by the untimely deaths, from unknown causes, of mem-
bers of his family. When he stated that while he wis yet in medical school in Nashville Pasteur made his
great discovery and came forth with the germ theory of disease, he profoundly impressed his audience with
a realisation of the rapid strides made in medicine and surgery within the life time of one man. The road over
wheh he has come and his accomplishments as a doctor and surgeon rank him among the pioneers of America.
The Fifty-Year Class was represented by Rev. Dr. Lorenzo R. Foster, who spoke briefly and effectively
in its behalf.
Floyd R. Watt, '21, President of the Alumni Association, presided; James R. Smith, '35, Executive
Secretary, made his annual report; Mrs. Fred L. ProfEtt (Estelle Snodgrass, '08) was elected President for the
ensuing year and other officers and Executive Committee members were elected, as reported elsewhere in this
The Baccalaureate service on Sunday morning was well attended. President Lloyd's sermon was on the
theme, "The Christian's Ideals in our Day." At the Senior Music Hour at four o'clock Sunday afternoon
there was a delightful program of piano, organ, and vocal music. The Commencement Vespers found the
Chapel full again. The sermon was preached by a Director of the College, Rev. Clifford E. Barbour, Pastor
of the Second Presbyterian Church, Knoxville, on the subject, "Youth and Religion."
At the Graduation Exercises on Monday morning the address was given by William Robert Webb, Jr.,
for the past thirty-six years Principal of the famous Webb School for boys at Bell Buckle, Tennessee. His
theme was "Education As A Tuning Process." Degrees were conferred upon sixty-four seniors. Eleven
others completed their work in the accelerated program last December and a few more will complete their
degree requirements this summer, making the number of graduates in the 1944 Class approximately eighty,
the smallest class since 1926. This small number, of course, is due to the absence of boys and the accelerated
schedule of both boys and girls. The number will not come up again until after the war, but eighty is a large
number after all.
Honorary degrees were conferred upon William Robert Webb, Jr., the speaker of the day, Rev.
Clark Neale Edwards, Pastor of the Independent Presbyterian Church, Birmingham, and Edwin Ray Hunter,
'14, Professor of English and Dean of Curriculum at Maryville College, now completing twenty-six years of
service on the Maryville
Certificates were awarded
to six living members of
the Class of 1894 in recog-
nition of the fiftieth anni-
versary of their graduation.
None of them was able to
be present on Commence-
ment Day but the certifi-
cates will be mailed. Dr.
Foster was at the Alumni
Dinner but was forced to
leave for his home in Scran-
ton, Pennsylvania, before
the Graduation Exercises.
The unavoidable delay in
getting this issue of the
Magazine through the press
makes it possible for a re-
sume of Commencement as
an occasion of genuine satis-
faction to those who were
present to be given while
it is yet fresh in our minds.
DR. VALE ELECTED MODERATOR
It will be of interest to all Maryville College alumni
that Rev. Dr. Roy Ewing Vale, Pastor of the Taber-
nacle Presbyterian Church, Indianapolis, was elected
Moderator of the 156th General Assembly of the Pres-
byterian Church in the U. S. A. at Chicago May 25.
Dr. Vale has been a Director of Maryville College
since 1919, having been elected when a pastor in
Dr. Vale went from Tennessee to Princeton Theo-
logical Seminary, and after two pastorates in New
Jersey returned to Tennessee to serve four years as
pastor of the Second Presbyterian Church of Knox-
ville. In 1921 he went to Chicago where he was for
nine years pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of
Oak Park. He was then for ten years pastor of the
Woodward Avenue Presbyterian Church of Detroit,
going to his present pastorate in Indianapolis in 1940.
He presided at the General Assembly with unusual
ability and fairness.
The fourteenth annual meeting of the Atlantic High'
landers, the Maryville College Alumni Branch in the
East, was held at the Eastern Star Chapter House in
Washington, D. G, Saturday night, June 24. There
were about fifty persons present. The number was a
little smaller than in normal years because of the im-
practicability of many people traveling from a distance.
Most of those who attended are at present in the
An unusual feature of the meeting was that there
were three members of the Maryville College Faculty
present. President Lloyd, who was in the East, spoke
concerning the present program and progress of the
College. Dr. Frank D. McClelland, Dean of Students,
now on leave of absence and a captain in the Marine
Corps assigned to Headquarters in Washington, and
Dr. Verton M. Queener, Professor of History, also on
leave of absence and serving in the Food Administra-
tion program in Washington, were present and spoke
briefly. Moving pictures of the campus and program,
some of them taken recently, were shown through ar-
rangements made by Dr. Albert F. Murray, '15, who is
one of the national group of scientists working in
William S. Fahnestock, Ex. '38, of Harrisburg, Pa.,
who has been president during the past year, presided,
and reports were made by the secretarytreasurer, E.
Lillian Cassel, '37, of Baltimore. Officers for the com-
ing year were elected as follows: Harold F. Holman,
'27, of Philadelphia, president, and Carol Celeste Cush-
man, '31, vice president. Miss Cassel's term as secretary-
treasurer has another year to run. Homer E. McCann,
'32, of Washington, was elected chairman of the Wash-
ington Division of the Atlantic Highlanders for the
coming year. It was the consensus of the group that
during the next year it might be wise to hold not only
the annual meeting of the Atlantic Highlanders as in
the past, but also additional area meetings both in
Washington and Philadelphia, perhaps in the fall.
THE ALUMNI LIVING ENDOWMENT FUND
A partial report on the Living Endowment to the
alumni assembled at the alumni dinner on May 13th,
revealed that to date $1,062.25 had been received by
the Alumni Office and turned over to the College, all
of which came in small sums.
Many members of the Association showed real pride
in the progress made by the Fund to date. While every
one seems to think that the Association has not done
nearly what it can, and will do, the steady growth in
interest reflected by a constant increase in the annual
giving looks promising.
If you want to pledge to the Fund, write the Alumni
Office of the College and a form for a conditional
pledge will be sent you. Make your checks and money
orders payable to Maryville College and mail to the
Alumni Association in care of the College. We are
up to our first thousand annually; now let us reach
our second thousand in a single year.

ALUMNI SECRETARY TO KNOXVILLE
On February 27, James R. Smith, Executive Secre-
tary of the Maryville Alumni Association and College
Public Relations Secretary, was installed Pastor of the
Graystone Presbyterian Church of Knoxville. He has
moved his family to the Manse there and except for
about one day a week which he spends at the Col-
lege, he has been on full duty at the Church since
Mr. Smith, a native of Mississippi, graduated from
Maryville College in 1935 and from the Columbia
Theological Seminary, Decatur (Atlanta), Georgia, in
1938. For two years he was pastor of the Kirkwood
Presbyterian Church of Atlanta. In 1940 he came to
his position at Maryville College where he has rendered
an excellent service. The call of the Graystone Church
was laid before him very urgently, and at last he be-
came convinced that it was his duty to accept it.
The College released him reluctantly, but of course
with heartiest good wishes to him and the Church. The
Graystone Church, organised in 1890, had as its first
pastor for years, Rev. Dr. W. R. Dawson, a graduate
of Maryville College in the Class of 1884, a Director
of the College from 1890 to 1934, and Chairman of
the Directors from 1927 to 1932. The second pastor,
Rev. B. B. Lavender, served for fifteen years. Mr.
Smith is the third pastor.
He will continue as Executive Secretary of the
Alumni Association. The Church is near enough to
the College to permit him to keep some regular touch
with the office.
THE 125th ANNIVERSARY
Maryville College will be officially 12? years old
on next October 19. It was on the corresponding
date m 1819 that the Synod of Tennessee of the
Presbyterian Church in the U. S. A. adopted the
resolution establishing the institution. Even before
that classes were meeting with Dr. Isaac Anderson
who was elected head of the institution. A much
earlier date might be taken for the beginning for
from 1S02 Dr. Anderson was conducting a school.
But the College uses the date on which Synod took
Because of difficulties and uncertainties connected
with the war, the making of definite plans for an
anniversary celebration have been postponed. Presi-
dent Lloyd announced that in the near future it will
be decided whether to attempt the major celebration
this year or have a limited observance and hold a
more extensive one when the war is over. If any
observance is held this year it will of course con-
stitute Founders' Day and Homecoming would natur-
ally be connected with it.
A NEW ADVANCE
On March 25 the National Association of Schools of
Music elected Maryville College to full membership.
This is the final step in the accrediting program.
In 1942 Maryville was elected an Associate Liberal
Arts member following application and examination.
Following the practice of the Association that a second
examination and report be made within two years an
examiner came in the Spring of 1943. The Associa-
tion did not meet after that until now and could not
act on the examiner's examination.
We are gratified that the College's work in music
meets the high standards of the National Association
and that we have been advanced. The present rating
in music is now the highest available.
One six-weeks Summer Term has been announced
for this year. It will begin May 17 and close June
29. It will be possible for an individual to earn from
six to eight semester hours of credit. The unusual
dates are due to the fact that the Army program
may close by the end of June and also that a new
Selective Service Directive requires that pre-profes-
sional students be in professional school somewhere
by July 1. A few boys need this six-weeks term
before that date. These Selective Service changes
reduce considerably the need for the full accelerated
plan. It seems wiser not to attempt more work this
year and to recommend to any students who might
have planned to attend an additional summer term to
arrange for work elsewhere if necessary and transfer
the credits to Maryville in the fall.

SUMMER ACTIVITIES ON THE CAMPUS
The Army Air Forces program will run probably
until June 30 only. A shortened Summer Session for
civilian students will be conducted for the six weeks
from May 17 to June 29.
In addition to these college activities, the Synod
and Synodical Society of Mid-South will meet at the
College June 27-29. The two Presbyterian Young
People's Conferences originally scheduled for July have
The change in the Army's program has necessitated
several other changes.

THE COLLEGE CALENDAR FOR 1944-1945
May 15, 1944— The 125th Commencement.
May 17 to June 29, 1944 — The third Summer Session.
September 5, 1944 — Opening of the Fall Semester.
December 19, 1944 — Close of the Fall Semester.

May 21, 1945— The 126th Comencement.
The "activation" program in preparation for handling
the Army Air Forces unit which came March 1, 1943,
included a number of alterations in the buildings.
Some of them were the following: wooden stair fire
escapes on Anderson, Science, Thaw and Bartlett
Halls, and on the Lamar Hospital; draft stop parti-
tions and doors enclosing all stairways in Carnegie
and Science Halls; additional wiring and lamp connec-
tions in all rooms of Carnegie and in Bartlett; re-
hanging to swing outward all exit doors which for-
merly swung inward at Anderson, Science, Thaw,
Carnegie, Bartlett, Pearsons, and the Hospital; placing
five additional exit doors in the Alumni Gymnasium.
The kitchen and refrigeration extensions reported
in the last issue (October, 1943) of the Alumni
Magazine, and financed by the College, were not re-
quired by the Government, but were desirable. The
Army program has necessitated considerable new
equipment, with the expense divided between the
Government and the College. That paid for by the
Government belongs to the Government. The Army
Detachment has a good deal of equipment in addition
to that provided by the College, including motor
During Holy Week there were readings from the
Gospel stories of Jesus' last week and special choir
numbers in Chapel each morning. On Good Friday
morning, there was held as in other recent years the
impressive devotional service built around the Seven
Words from the Cross. Also the student religious
organisations held a well-attended noon service each
On Easter Sunday, April 9, the Sunrise Service
was held in the Amphitheatre in the College Woods
for the seventh successive year. Beginning an hour
and a half before sunrise the band, choir, faculty, and
other invited groups went to the home of President
and Mrs. Lloyd for a cup of coffee and a roll. Easter
music was played from Anderson Tower and along
the road to the Amphitheatre for an hour before the
service. The service has become well-established in
form and is conducted by President Lloyd and the Col-
lege Choir. It is an impressive occasion and is now
On Easter evening the Choir, under Philip O.
Jones' of the Music faculty, gave an excellent rendition
of Dubois' The Seven Last Words of Christ.

THE COLLEGE CATALOG
The 1944 Catalog is now being prepared. It will
consist of about 128 pages. The 1942 Catalog had
144 pages. In 1943 a War Year Abridged Edition
of only 52 pages was issued. This year the Catalog
goes back to a size near the usual one although a few
things will be condensed, and the smaller enrollment
requires fewer pages for student lists. Each year
the Catalog is the May issue of the Maryville College
Bulletin. The Alumni Magazine is also in the same

STANDARDS FOR PRESBYTERIAN COLLEGES
Upon recommendation of the Board of Christian
Education and the Presbyterian College Union, the
155th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church
in the U. S. A. in 1943 adopted the following mini-
mum standards for colleges which are affiliated with
1. The college shall adopt a statement of purpose
clearly defining its status as a Christian college. This
statement of purpose shall be included in the statement
of institutional purpose in the official college catalogue
and shall furthermore indicate that the college is af-
filiated with the Presbyterian Church U. S. A.
2. It shall be the declared policy of the college to
employ as regular members of the faculty only men
and women who are active members in good standing
of some evangelical Christian Church which affirms its
loyalty to Jesus Christ as the Divine Lord and Savior.
The Board does not rule that this action is to affect
faculty members already employed.
3. The college shall provide courses in biblical
studies and shall require at least one such course for
4. The college shall submit annually to the Board
of Christian Education complete financial information
for the year on forms supplied by the Board, and shall
have an annual audit made by a certified public ac-
countant. It is further recommended that the state-
ments contained in the. accountant's report shall con-
form with the accounting principles applicable to in-
stitutions of higher education.
5. The college shall be officially and fully ac-
credited by the regional accrediting agency. If not so
accredited, it shall be required to be specifically ap-
proved by the Board of Christian Education upon
recommendation of an examining committee.
These standards were presented to the Faculty and
the Directors' Committees on Administration and Fi-
nance in March by Rev. Dr. E. Fay Campbell, Secre-
tary of the Division of Higher Education of the
Presbyterian Board of Christian Education. The Faculty
and the Directors' Committees approved and accepted
them without reservation, and they will be presented
to the Board of Directors May 15. Maryville meets
and goes considerably beyond them. For example,
Maryville requires 10 semester hours of Bible and
Religious Education while Standard 3 specifies only one
course (which could be as little as one hour, which of
coyrse is not enough). Not only is Maryville ac-
credited as specified in Standard 5, but also by all
leading accrediting bodies.
"We at Maryville College heartily approve the pur-
pose and plan of these Standards and hope they may
even be lifted at certain points," says President Ralph

PRESCHOOL AGE MUSIC
This year the Fine Arts Division has provided a
music class for small children under the school age
of six. There are about six children in each class,
with about twenty children in all. This is to provide
practice teaching credit for college students taking the
course in Methods and Technique of Teaching Music.
It has proved very popular, and there is a waiting list

THE CHAPEL FIRE
About 4:00 o'clock in the afternoon of December 3,
1943, fire was discovered in the attic of Elizabeth R.
Voorhees Chapel, at the end toward town, over the
platform and organ. The choir was rehearsing in the
main auditorium at the time. Students were prac-
ticing in various studios on the lower floor, and
other activities were in progress.
Fire and heavy smoke gained headway rapidly and
were seen at considerable distances. The city fire
department came promptly; college students, aviation
students, and faculty carried some twenty-three pianos
out of the building. The roof and its supports were
rather extensively burned, but the fire was checked
and the building was saved. Water damaged ceilings
and walls, but the pipe organ escaped in a remarkable
way. Within a week the building was back in use
with a temporary roof, and men were at work on
basic repairs. The permanent roof had to wait several
months for slate, and the plastering and painting are
still waiting until summer when the Chapel will not
be so constantly in use.
The Chapel is covered by fire insurance, of course,
but it is doubtful whether under the terms of the
policies all of the items of damage will be cared for.
All Maryville College people rejoice that the Chapel,
which has played so large a place in the college
careers of all students of the past thirty-eight years,
THE FEBRUARY MEETINGS
The 68th series of February Meetings proved to
be a highly successful series under the leadership
of Rev. Dr. Harrison Ray Anderson of Chicago. The
sincere and able preaching of Dr. Anderson, the
usual hearty and helpful handling of the music by
Dr. Sidney E. Stringham, the full schedule of inter-
views, and the total spirit and program led to a
deepening of the spiritual life of the whole College
as well as of the lives of the individual students. God
continues to use the Meetings as He always has used

SOME SENIOR BIRTHDAYS
PRESIDENT EMERITUS SAMUEL TYNDALE
WILSON was 86 on February 17. He continues to
live at his home on Indiana Avenue to which he
moved upon his retirement from the Presidency of
the College in 1930.
DR. WILLIAM PATTON STEVENSON, College
Pastor Emeritus, was 83 on December 24. He has
spent most of the winter in St. Petersburg, Florida,
and has been recovering gradually from his serious
illness of last year.
MRS. JOHN WALKER, who has lived at Morn-
ingside since she built it in the College Woods in
1932, celebrated her 92 birthday on Easter, April 9.
She is well and active and interested in many things.
THE SERVICE FLAGS
Two service flags now hang in the Chapel. Since
the first flag's picture appeared on the back cover
of the October Alumni Magazine the stars on it have
increased from 400 to the flag's capacity of 665, and
a second flag has been purchased by the Alumni As-
sociation. There are 335 stars now on it, bringing the
total to 1000 stars.
It will be recalled that the Class of 1943 at gradua-
tion purchased and presented to the College the first
flag and placed stars for its members at that time in
the service. The Alumni Association has paid for all
other stars (which cost about seven cents each) and
the second flag.
There are five gold stars. Three were reported in
the October Alumni Magazine, those for Chaplain
(Colonel) Frank L. Miller, '14; for Ensign Weldon
A. Baird, '39; and for 1st Lt. Herbert I. Turner, Ex.
'41. The two added since are for 1st Lt. Fleming
P. Griffith, Ex. '43; and for F. A. Greene, Jr., Ex. '46.

tribution just before Commencement. On December
8, 1942, in a radio broadcast, Paul R. Boardman,
President of the Board of Directors of the St. Peters-
burg Chamber of Commerce, paid a great tribute to
Roy S. Hanna as a former President of the Board,
Postmaster, and builder of St. Petersburg.

ATHLETICS AND DEBATE
It is unnecessary to report that there have been
no intercollegiate athletics at Maryvillc this year.
With a maximum of 65 civilian men students and
the Army's rule forbidding aviation students to play
in intercollegiate competition there has been no pos-
sibility of even discussing the matter. There is a busy
program of competitive play on the campus, and of
course a vigorous physical training program.
Conditions inevitably have curtailed intercollegiate
debate, but there has been a squad at work under
Dr. David H. Briggs, and it has participated suc-
cessfully in a few contests with institutions in the
