Since the Dinner comes at the end of the college year when left-overs cannot be used, we cannot expect the College to plan to serve many more than indicate they are coming. It is always an embarrassing moment for us when some are standing without places. None of us want to resort to refusing to sell tickets at the door, but we shall have to do it if we cannot get the people to let us know that they are coming. The dinner was a lovely affair with a novelty which will be reported in the October issue. OFFICERS OF THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 1945-1946 ^President Charles F.

MARYVILLE COLLEGE BULLETIN Published by Maryville College, Maryville, Tennessee Ralph Waldo Lloyd, President Vol. XLIV April, 1946 No. 9 Published quarterly by Maryville College. Entered May 24, 1904, at Maryville, Tennessee, as second-class mail matter. Acceptance for mailing at special rate of postage provided for in Section 1103. Act of October 3, 1917, authorized February 10, 1919. Jtomtettt iCbgin a fag? Mr. Smith, our loyal and capable Executive Secretary, tells me that it is time for the President of the College to write his page again. We all hope that problems of printing will be less this next month than they have been during the fall and winter, and that this issue of the Alumni Magazine will be in the mail well ahead of Commencement time. First Postwar Commencement The last four Commencements have been held under the shadows and limitations of the war. Travel conditions were so difficult that alumni could not be encouraged to come and families of those graduating could not always be present. Traveling is by no; means on a prewar basis yet, with automobiles growing old, tires still scarce, and lodging places in Maryville crowded. But many of the hindrances have disap- peared and we hope the 1946 Commencement will see on the campus an increased number of alumni, former students, returned veterans, and families of students. All who can come will be heartily welcome. How Many Students Do You Have? This is the question most frequently answered by a college official in 1946. The reasons are obvious, although the answer is not so im- portant as it seems. What kind of students do you have? would be a better question. But the right number for the faculty and facilities of each college is important, too, and just now the rapid changes give the answer special interest. We are not crowded yet although the number of men students doubled in January and we have about the right number for our arrangements this spring. It is reported that seventy-five per cent, of the veterans who have enrolled in college up to this time are at five per cent, of the colleges — for the most part State and other large universities that have a variety of vocational departments. But many are returning to liberal arts colleges like Maryville and if the predictions heard at educational gatherings are correct most institutions may be overflowing next fall and for two or three years to come. I still think it will be 1947 before Maryville's quota of men students is full again, but we'll see. The veterans who have returned mean business and we like them. New Majors Alumni will be interested to know and glad to tell interested young people that Maryville College is adding majors in Business Administration, Physical Education (for both men and women), and School Music, beginning next fall. These will increase the vocational offerings without reducing the central liberal arts core curriculum or emphasis. We are well along in a far-reaching curriculum revision, perhaps for year after next — but more of that another time. Maryville College Publications Within the past few weeks we have prepared and published the following bulletins which contain material of interest to alumni. If you have not received any one of them, you may do so by writing the Alumni Office: (1) The Religious Program at Maryville College; (2) Fifteen Years at Maryville College — the President's Report; (3) The Student-Help Program: (4) Information for Prospective Students. Two other bulletins are being pre- pared, one on the Fine Arts Program and the other on vocational opportunities. The 1946 Catalog is now at the printer's. Renewed Activity I went out to the athletic fields today. There I saw some fifty college men in orange and garnet jerseys at spring football practice, and twenty more on the baseball diamond, and ten others on the tennis courts getting ready for a match with Lincoln Memorial, and still other men and women at intramurals. And I thought, "Ath- letics are not the main business of college, but they are a desirable part of college life and I'm glad they are back." Sincerely, J\Outp^ /Utzl^Lo ^t 1946 COMMENCEMENT The delay in getting the April issue of the Alumni Magazine printed makes it possible to add this article on Commencement. The Editors think it will seem fresher here than in the October issue. The schedule was carried out as announced. The weather on Baccalaureate and Graduation days was clear and cool, even though rainy on some adjacent days. The crowd from out of town had some appearances of pre-war crowds, but was smaller for at least two reasons: (1) the senior class is still only about half the size of the pre-war classes; (2) the railroad strike was first called for the day before Baccalaureate and actually occurred the day after Commencement. Many people gave up traveling. Among these was one of the four living members of the Fifty-Year Class. The Senior Breakfast given annually by President and Mrs. Lloyd was on, Wednesday, May 8. The Senior Chapel program was on Wednesday, May 15. The Commencement Play (Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion") was presented to a full house on Saturday night, May 18. There were three events on Baccalaureate Sunday, May 19: the Baccalaureate Service, at which President Lloyd preached a sermon on the theme "You Will Need Religion"; the Senior Music Hour, m which the artists were Catherine S. Sisk, Soprano, and Jean Keen, pianist, both music majors, and four other students; the Commencement Vespers, at which the preacher was Rev. Dr. Herman L. Turner, Pastor of the Covenant Presbyterian Church, Atlanta, and a Director of Mary ville College, and the message a vigorous and timely one. Dr. Lloyd's text for the Baccalaureate Sermon was from Ephesians 2:12, 13, "Remember that you were at that time separated from Christ — having no hope and without God in the world. But now — ." In develop- ing the theme, "You Will Need Religion," he empha- sized: I. That there is today a new sense of the need for religion; between the two world wars there grew up a widespread doubt as to whether religion is really needed in view of what science can do; but man is in fact incurably religious and the events of the years just past have shocked him into a realisation that both civilisation and individuals are lost without religion. II. Only religion can provide the interpretation, the con- trol, and the spiritual power necessary to meet the demands of life. III. And only a Christ-centered re- ligion is sufficient. Not just any religion will do. It must be a vital spiritual religion of Christian doctrine, ethics, service, and love; not a religion held for what it will do for us but for what God can do through us. Monday was an open day except for the examinations then in process. Tuesday began with a chapel program of music by the All-Girls Choir and a skit by students of Dramatic Art. In the afternoon President and Mrs. Lloyd gave their annual reception for alumni, seniors, parents of students, faculty, and other guests. The Annual Alumni Dinner and Meeting attended by alumni, seniors, parents of seniors, and faculty marked a return to pre-war numbers. There were 275 who made reservations; the Dining Hall set 300 plates; 325 people came. More carefulness about reservations would help, but all were finally cared for and had a good time. In addition to the business and election of officers, the features of the program were the presence of three out of the four living members of the fifty-year class and the showing of two moving pictures. The first picture was the sound film entitled "The Church Related College" produced by the Presbyterian Board of Christian Education and filmed by a professional moving picture director and crew on five campuses of which Maryville was one. The second picture was in color, taken this spring in Mrs. John Walker's azalea garden in the College Woods. The alumni officers elected for 1946-1947 are: Dr. H. J. Bassett, '04, President; Dr. F. A. Griffitts, '25, Vice-President; Winifred L. Painter, '15, Recording Secretary. The Executive Secretary, James R. Smith, '35, continued in office. The new members of the Executive Committee are Mrs. Earl Blazer (Conchita Bertran), '31, Mrs. Ray Foster (Winston Cordelia New- ton), '20, and Marvin D. Minear, '39. On Commencement Day the Directors met at 8:30 in the morning and the graduating exercises were held at 10:30. There were fifty-two women and ten men who received the bachelor's degree that day. There were nine women and one man who completed their work in December 1945 and three or four will probably finish elsewhere at the end of this summer, all of these being counted as of the Class of 1946. That makes about seventy-five in the Class, which is much smaller than the pre-war classes. The reasons for this number are obvious — the few boys in college these four years, and the "war-time accelerated program" which graduated many students ahead of schedule. The number will be- gin to climb from now onward. The Commencement Address was by the Rev. Dr. Her- bert Ware Reherd, President Emeritus and Chairman of the Board of Westminster College, St. Lake City. He spoke on "The Crucial Question of the Hour," which he defined as what is to be done in face of the atomic bomb's peril to civilization. His answer was "to make one good world and do it quickly." He outlined five advancements necessary to this task: I. World Order in Government; II. One Great Program of Scientific and Industrial Development; III. Advancement in Human Relationships to be Shared by All; IV. Ad- vancement in Learning Eevrywhere; V. The Dynamic of God's Power to Make Our Unity Effective. Two honorary degrees were conferred. One was that of Doctor of Laws upon President Emeritus Reherd. The other was that of Doctor of Divinity upon Rev. Sam H. Franklin, Jr., '24, now an Acting Secretary of the Pres- byterian Board of Foreign Missions, during the war a Navy Chaplain in the Pacific, formerly a missionary to Japan and under appointment to return there. The first post-war Commencement was, from every point of view, a good one. There was a spirit of grati- tude that the war was over, of deep concern for the future of civilization in the years ahead, and of dedica- tion to the tasks at hand. ALUMNI DUES Alumni dues have been coming in encouragingly for the last two months, but now as they slack off, it is ap- parent that many who usually pay their dues have not yet got around to it. Also there are always some new ones to begin payment for the first time, and some that seek to catch up with the back years. A full financial report for the year ending June 30, 1946, will appear in the October issue which we are doing everything in our power to have out on time. FOUR MRS. WEST RETIRES At the Commencement exercises President Lloyd an- nounced that Mrs. West is retiring from active service. His statement is as follows: "The Directors have with genuine regret acceded to the request of Mrs. Nita Eckles West that she be permitted to retire after 42 years of service on the Maryville College faculty. It was only because of her insistence and because she granted them no alternative that the Directors and President acceded to her request. "Mrs. West, in point of service, is the senior mem- ber of the Maryville College faculty and staff. She is today completing 42 years. It is now 47 years since she began her teaching in 1899, but she was away three years from 1901 to 1904 and two years from 1912 to 1914. Otherwise she has directed plays and taught expression and drama continuously since the turn of the century. She and Mr. West have seen a son and two daughters grow to manhood and womanhood and are now rich with live grandchildren. Yet she is not really so very old in years and is not old at all in spirit. I am sure she will not object to my referring to the fact that in all the 127 years of the College's life only one person has served longer on the faculty. Dr. Samuel Tyndale Wilson's 17 years as Professor and 29 years as President totalled 46 years, four more than Mrs. West's 42 years No one else so far has remained beyond 40 years. It is for this reason that today we are breakins our rule by which we do not customarily include such recognitions in the- Commencement pro- gram. "Mrs. West's students have always been her friends also. When they return they seek her out for they love her as she loves them. Her standards of work and life are high. She is a Christian in belief, loyalty, ethics, and disposition. Not many of us qualify in all of these areas. She has done widely recognised work with very limited equipment. This Chapel is dear to the hearts of Maryville College people everywhere; but ali know that it was not built for theatrical productions, although Mrs. West has staged excellent ones here ever since it was built. She collected costumes for over a quarter of a century, and then they burned two years ago. Yet her buoyant spirit has enabled her to continue her high quality of work. "And for the encouragement of us who remain, I am glad to announce that although her official retire- ment becomes effective today, she will next year con- tinue to direct the three or four major plays given here in the Chapel. "I take this occasion to congratulate her upon a re- markable career at Maryville College and extend the af- fection and good wishes of the whole college family." SOME OF PRESIDENT LLOYD'S GENERAL SERVICES The Editor has just conducted a little research in which he found among the services which President Lloyd is currently giving in addition to his "regular" duties as President of Maryville College are the fol- lowing: In the Presbyterian Church in the USA: Moderator of the Synod of Mid-South and Chairman of its Com- mittee on United Promotion; Chairman of the Depart- ment of Church Cooperation and Union of the Office of the General Assembly; member of the Presbyterian Council on Theological Education and of its Executive Committee and Chairman of the Council's permanent Committee on Non-Ministerial Church Vocations. In the ecumenical movement of the Church at large: A delegate to the last several meetings of the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America, an alternate member of the Executive Committee and a member of the Department of International Justice and Good Will of the Federal- Council; an alternate on the American Committee of the World Council of Churches; one of the Presbyterian members of the Western Section of the Alliance of Reformed Churches Throughout the World Holding the Presbyterian System. In the YMCA movement: President of the Southern Area Council, member of the Southern Area and Blue Ridge YMCA Assembly Boards of Directors, and of the National Student Committee. In the college field: Member of the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education and its permanent Committee on Standards and Reports of the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools; Secre- tary of the Conference of Church Related Colleges of the Southeast. Terms in several other state and na- tional offices in college service have expired since the opening of the war. There are other responsibilities, especially in the Maryville and Knoxville communities, but those named will give an idea of how Maryville College service is extended through her officers and faculty. Of course President Lloyd can give very little time to some of the relationships which develop as the years pass, but a few require considerable attention and travel. All ' have a bearing on the task Maryville College is at- tempting to do. SABBATICAL LEAVE PLAN The Directors of Maryville College at their meeting on May 22 approved the inauguration of a Sabbatical Leave Plan for all permanent members of the faculty and staff. In general outline it provides for a leave of absence, with compensation, at intervals of not less than seven years, for the purpose of professional study or other training. It will become effective, under speci- fied limitations, in 1947. FIVE PRESIDENT LLOYD TO CHINA President Lloyd has been appointed a member of a deputation of five to visit China during the fall for the purpose of conferring with national leaders and mis- sionaries, appraising present conditions and future needs, and reporting to the Board of Foreign Missions of the Presbyterian Church in the U. S. A. as to strategy and program for the Presbyterian Church's evangelistic, educational, medical, and other work in China. Although the demands of the program at Maryville College will be heavy in these coming months, it was finally decided by Dr. Lloyd and the Board of Directors of the College that in his acceptance of this appoint- ment the College might make a contribution to the foreign missions enterprise in China where the Presby- terian Church has its largest foreign program. The deputation was announced and approved on May 29 at the 158th General Assembly in Atlantic City. According to present plans Dr. Lloyd will go to the Orient by plane as soon after the opening of the fall semester as possible. The deputation will spend about three months in the different areas of China where the Presbyterian Church in the U. S. A. conducts work in churches, hospitals, and educational institutions. While there Dr. Lloyd will participate in the study and recom- mendations concerning the whole program in China, but his appointment was especially as a Christian educator. The other members of the deputation are Rev. Dr. Lloyd S. Ruland, of New York, Secretary for China on the Board of Foreign Missions; Miss Margaret Shannon, of New York, formerly of Beirut, Syria, now Secretary for Women; Rev. Dr. John B. Weir, of India, Execu- tive Secretary of the India Council; Dr. William J. Barnes, a physician of Englewood, New Jersey, formerly a medical missionary in China. Dr. Ruland will go to China in July to begin prepara- tions for the work of the deputation. Miss Shannon and Dr. Barnes are expected to leave this country by steamship sometime in August. Dr. Weir will proceed to China from India. Dr. Lloyd expects to be back at the College before the opening of the second semester. DEATHS Mrs. C. H. Norman, '14, (Alma Mabel Armstrong) died at St. Petersburg, Florida, December 28, 1945. She had been teaching in the Dunedin, Florida, High School. She is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Helen Youmans. Benjamin Horace Brown, '39, was killed, February 17. 1946, in the crash of single engine Luscombc plane on his father's farm over which he was being flown to take aerial photographs. The pilot was also killed. He had received the LL.B. degree from Duke University in 1942, in addition to his work at Maryville, and was just released from the Army. George Omar Beall Ex. '44, failed to return from a mission over Yap Island, October, 1944, and has been listed as dead by the U. S. Marine Corps. George graduated from Binghamton High School (N.Y.) in 1937 and came to Maryville College in the fall of 1940 as a ministerial student. He entered the Marine Air Corps in 1942 and was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant, May 11, 1943. One month later he married Ethel Hanners, '45, and was promoted to 1st Lieutenant in October,' 1943. HERE AND THERE 1896 In some unexplainable manner we made a serious mistake in the October issue mailed in February: we listed James Allen Davis instead of J. H. Newman as the fourth living member of the fifty-year class. We were seeking information about J. A. Davis whom we had heard was dead, but all knew that Mr. Newman was very much alive and active in Johnson City, Ten- nessee.

ALPHA GAMMA SIGMA, 1946 Six members of the Class of 1946 have been elected to membership in Alpha Gamma Sigma, Scholarship Honor Society. One, Carol Titus, now Mrs. Donald Hardy, now living in India, was elected at the time of her graduation in December; the other five elected in February are Olinde Ahrens, of Osborne, Kansas; Margaret Cross of Brent, Alabama; Catherine Sisk, of Maryville; Jane Trotter, of Maryville; and Betty Wells, of Cranbury,. New Jersey. The recognition ceremony for this group will be held at the regular Chapel Assembly on Tuesday, April 30, when Dr. Archibald Henderson, of the University of North Carolina, will be the speaker. Including the present class, the membership of the Society in its thirteen years has now reached one hundred and twenty-six student members, forty-eight men and seventy-eight women. For these student mem- bers we do not have full information, but these facts may be of interest. Thirty-five are housewives; nineteen are students in graduate or professional schools; four- teen are teaching; twelve are in the ministry; six are scientists; five are working in government agencies; two are physicians; two are directors of religious education; one is in Y. W. C. A. work; one is a nurse; one a lawyer; one a missionary; and one a journalist. The Society has, also, three associate members, eight honorary members, and seven Phi Beta Kappa members. Three members have died: Dr. S. T. Wilson, '78, Honorary; Dr. George A. Knapp, Phi Beta Kappa, Hamilton College; and Irma Criswell, '43, of Miami, Florida. NINE GOLD STARS In the Alumni Magazine a year ago the names of twenty-seven Gold Star men were listed. Since that time six additional Gold Stars have been added to our flags. Four of them are for men previously listed as missing and now officially declared dead. A dedication service for those of whom we then knew was held in chapel on January 23rd. The six are as follows: Clifton Kirkland Pool, ex-'44, Baltimore, Maryland, at Maryville one year, in the Army Air Forces, reported missing off the coast of Puerto Rico December 21, 1942, and on December 21, 1943, officially reported dead. James Victor Chittick, ex-'36, Frankfort, Indiana, at Maryville College three years, killed in action in Germany in August 1944. Oscar Rankin Proffitt, ex'M-5, Maryville, Tennessee, at Maryville College a year and a half, a gunner on a B-17 based in Italy, reported missing over Jugoslavia November 7, 1944, and on November 7, 1945, officially reported dead. Griffeth Harrison Fort, ex-'43, Rogersville, Tennessee, at Maryville College one year, a radio-gunner in the 15th Air Force in Italy, shot down December 17, 1944, over Germany, and on December 18, 1945, officially re- ported dead. Edward Ackerman, ex-'3S, Cincinnati, Ohio, at Mary- ville College one year, later graduated from the Naval Academy, Annapolis, a Lieutenant Commander in com- mand of the submarine U.S.S. Kete which on June 30, 1945, was reported overdue and presumed lost. George Omar Beall, ex- , 44, Binghamton, New York, at Maryville College two years, a Marine pilot lost on a mission against Yap in the Caroline Islands Novem- ber 8, 1944, and officially reported dead in February, 1946. The death of Marvin Long, Ex. '44, has been report- ed by the War Department. No details are at hand. He was "missing" for some time. On June 3, Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal notified the relatives of Ensign Albert Kinrxl Murrian, Ex. '45, that the Navy considers the flier officially dead. On May 2. 1945, he was missing on the return flight of his Naval plane after a raid on the Japanese home islands. He was married to Man' G. Epps and had a son, Robert Phillip, 14 months old. VISITING SPEAKERS This year at the College has been notable for the number of distinguished speakers who have been pre- sented. One of the outstanding events of the fall was the Founders Day Address of Wiley B. Rutledge, As- sociate Justice of the Supreme Court. Another event of the fall was the visit of Dr. Fred H. Hope, when he spoke twice on the work of the West Africa Mis- sion, his last public addresses. Rev. Dr. Luther E. Stein will long be remembered on the campus as the very excellent leader of the seventieth series of Febru- ary Meetings. In February we were privileged also to have Dr. Robert E. Speer and Rev. Dr. Henry Sloane Coffin as chapel speakers. In March, Rev. Dr. George L. Robinson, Professor Emeritus of McCormick Theo- logical Seminary, spoke and in Holy Week Bishop Paul B. Kern of the Methodist Church was the chapel speak- er. Mr. Donald Grant, of London, well known lecturer on International Affairs, speaking under the auspices of the Institute of International Affairs, gave a series of nine lectures this spring. Many alumni will recall Mr. Grant for he -gave similar series here in 1938 and in 1941. And Dr. Archibald Henderson, Professor of Mathematics at the University of North Carolina, spoke to the Faculty Club, at the recognition service for newly elected members of Alpha Gamma Sigma, and to several class groups. NEW COLLEGE OFFERINGS The new catalog now being printed will carry an- nouncements of the following additions to the major offerings of Maryville College. A new major in public school music is added to those now provided in piano, organ, voice, violin, and theory. This is designated for those students who wish to quali- fy to teach music in the public schools of the various states. To the major in economics which has been offered for several years is added a major in business administra- tion with an emphasis somewhat more on the vocational aspects of the general field of business. This will meet especially a need felt by returning veterans and other men students but will be open for men and women alike. The details will be developed gradually over the next two or three years but work will begin this fall. A third new major is in physical education. This will qualify either men or women to take positions as physical directors in the schools of Tennessee and other states. Like the two foregoing majors it is part of a policy to meet in a practical way the needs of a con- siderable number of veterans and others and to balance the general and vocational values of the College's pro- gram. All three of these will be available in this next college year. "MARYVILLE VICTORY" A recent letter received by President Lloyd from E. L. Bloomfield, Chief Radio Officer on the SS Maryville Victory, contains information which will be of interest to Maryville alumni. This is the ship named for Mary- ville College and launched at Wilmington, California, on February 22, 1945. It was put into service as a cargo ship with a capacity of 9,100 tons. Later it was con- verted into a troop ship carrying 1,600 men. Part of Mr. Bloomfield's letter, written from Seattle. April 2, is as follows: "When I wrote you last we were bound for Japan. After arriving in Nagoya and remaining there about three weeks we were rerouted to Jinsen Korea where we picked up a load of approximately 1500 troops. From there it was back to Seattle via a north route. We are now in the shipyard undergoing reconversion and the "Maryville" when she comes out will be a freight- ship again. We expect our next voyage to commence sometime around the middle of this month. We prob- ably will go to Canada and pick up part of a cargo of grain and from there to Cuba to finish off with sugar and then over to Europe via the Panama Canal-Carib- bean-Atlantic route. "I am very sorry that I don't have any snapshots of the vessel as you request. However, I am enclosing the souvenir edition of the Maryville Monitor — a little daily paper which the troops published aboard ship last trip. I am quite sure you will find it interesting, especially the daily log on page two. Should I be able to secure any films I will keep you in mind." TEN ATHLETICS This semester, for the first time in three years, Mary- ville College re-entered intercollegiate athletics, with a very acceptable basketball team. Most of the squad was built around veterans of the military services who entered at the beginning of the second semester in January. In spite of the short time allowed for prelimin- ary training, the team played creditable college basket- ball, winning 6 out of 10 games. Some good material was developed for next year. Forty men reported for spring football practice, in- cluding several seniors from Maryville and Everett High Schools. Prospects are fair for a strong team next fall, strengthened by the expected return from the Services of several well-known Maryville gridmen. The tennis team this spring has several matches scheduled with East Tennessee colleges and the Uni- versity of Tennessee. Material is good, and with the resumption of faculty coaching next year, there should be excellent prospects for this sport. A few baseball games will be played this spring, but there is a short- age of experienced players. Coach Honaker is laying the groundwork for a good team next spring. Full resumption of intercollegiate athletics, including swimming, wrestling, and track, and extension of the intra-mural athletic program is planned with the increase in men's enrolment next fall. It is believed that the new Physical Education major and the revised offerings in that field will have a stimulating effect on the entire athletic program. COLLEGE FORENSICS and Southeast held a joint conference for the two days. The outstanding debate colleges and universities of the two sections took part in this meet. The teams of the South competed with the teams of the North. Mary- ville's team of "freshman boys, David Campbell and John Briggs, against much more matured speakers won two of their seven debates. The women's team composed of June Garland, Judy Turk, Audria Stinger, and Miriam Wickham won the women's debate championship. Turk and Garland were voted among the first five debaters of the meet. June Garland and Judy Turk have won nineteen of their twenty debates during the year. With the return of Dr. Verton Queener, '24, who has coached championship teams during the last fifteen years, the College can look forward to even more suc- cessful seasons in the future. During the war years, Dr. David H. Briggs, '19, has substituted for Dr. Queener, '24, who has been on leave of absence. The Maryville College debate teams, during the present academic year, have continued to win honors in intercollegiate competition. The war years have re- duced considerably the number participating in forensics; this has been true of men especially. Twenty-five men and women reported for the speech classes at the begin- ning of the fall semester. For various reasons many dropped the courses until the squad numbered only twelve during the second semester. The first contest of the year was held at Charlotte, North Carolina, in December. The Maryville affirma- tive team, composed of June Garland and Judy Turk, won the Dixie Women's championship by taking six out of six debates. The other Maryville teams did well in their contests also. The second competitive contest was the Tennessee State meet at Cookeville in early February. The Men's team composed of David Campbell and John Briggs (son of Dr. David H. Briggs, class of 1919) won four out of six debates and placed second in debate. John Briggs won first place in impromptu speaking. In the women's division June Garland and Judy Turk, affirm- ative, Audria Stinger and Miriam Wickham, negative, tied for first place by winning all six rounds of debate. Audria Stinger won second place in extemp and Miriam Wickham won second in impromptu speaking. Mary Annis Beals (Grand-daughter of Mrs. Annis D. Beals, class of 1892) won second in oration and first in after- dinner speaking. The most important meet of the year was held at Georgetown College at Georgetown, Kentucky, on April 19 and 20. Pi Kappa Delta provinces of the Lakes THE COLLEGE CHOIRS Mary College has two excellent choirs this year. One is the College A Capella Choir of 5 5 voices, 30 women and 25 men, the successor to the choirs of former years. The other is an All Girls Choir of over 50 voices which was organized early in this college year. The College Choir is sometimes called the Vesper Choir because it sings regularly at the Sunday Vespers. But it serves at an increasingly larger number of other events both on and off the campus. It sits on the platform and leads the singing regularly at morning Chapel, sings on such special occasions as Commence- ment, Founders' Day, and Easter, and is being invited to give special sacred music programs at church and musical events in various cities. More of these invita- tions are being acecpted this year than formerly and enthusiastic and appreciative reports reach the College about these appearances. The first real tour by a Maryville College Choir was made during the week following Easter, to Huntsville and Birmingham, Alabama, and Chattanooga, Athens, and Etowah, Tennessee. Evening concerts were given at the first three places named, under auspices of the USA Presbyterian Churches there. At Huntsville, Bir- mingham, and Etowah, the Choir gave daytime programs at high schools, and in Athens at Tennessee Wesleyan College. All told it traveled 650 miles in a large Trail- ways bus and 3 ordinary cars, and gave seven sacred concerts ranging in length from two hours down to twenty minutes. The bus carried a full length sign reading Maryville College A Capella Choir. The tour was counted a successful inauguration of what is hoped will be a series of tours in the coming years. The financial receipts covered but about two- thirds of the actual expense of the trip. There were large and appreciative audiences for each appearance, the people of the churches and schools were most hos- pitable and generous, and the trip was not only enjoy- able to the choir members but also valuable to the com- munities visited and to the College. The same Choir this year also has sung in Knoxville several times and at Loudon on Good Friday night. The All Girls Choir now takes one Sunday Vespers each month and sang at the Maryville Community Three-Hour Service on Good Friday. ELEVEN The College Choir is under direction of Richard Vine, Assistant Professor of Music, and the All Girls Choir is directed by Curtis Hughes, Instructor in Music. It is counted a distinct honor to be selected for one of the choirs, especially for the College Choir. The con- tribution of this service to the religious, cultural, and social life of the campus is marked. THIS SUMMER ON THE CAMPUS Because of the relatively limited number of Maryville students who desire to attend summer school and the convenient availability of regularly conducted summer schools in other institutions, the faculty has decoded not to return to the wartime accelerated program conducted for three years but discontinued after 1944. But there will be both younger and older people at- tending events on the campus during almost half of the summer of 1946. There will be four Young People's conferences as fol- lows: June 10-17, Presbyterian USA Senior Conference; June 17-22, Presbyterian US Young People's and Pioneer Conferences (simultaneously); July 1-8, Presbyterian USA Junior High Conference. For the four days of June 25-28, the Synod and Women's Synodical Society of Mid-South of the Pres- byterian Church in the USA (covering Tennessee, Western North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Miss- issippi) will hold their annual business meetings and conferences at Maryville College, after but a skeleton meeting last year. It is expected that three or four MARYVILLE IN THE MOVIES You remember that the last October issue of the Alumni Magazine carried an article under the above heading. At last the film has been released for general use and is obtainable from the Board of Christian Edu- cation, 1105, Witherspoon Building, Philadelphia, 7, Pennsylvania. Also some Field agents of the Board have copies of it and machines with which to show it as well as others. We at Maryville saw it with considerable interest for the first time on Friday evening, May 17, in Voor- hees Chapel. It is a black and white sound film with a commentator carrying the narrative. Dr. Lloyd thinks that the narrator is Mr. Hamilton McFadden, who di- rected the taking of the picture. At the beginning of the film several of the boys are from Tusculum Col- lege, but the tallest bne who takes the positive argument is Harold Kidder who will graduate from Maryville Col- lege next year. He -is the son of J. Edward Kidder, '16, who was Presi- dent of the Alumni Association in 1942-43. Although the picture was made from shots taken on all the Presbyterain college campuses, no col- lege's name was to appear in the film. One college was able to surmount this problem by getting in a photograph of its student newspaper which carried the name in the masthead. Several scenes are recognisable from the campus of Maryville College, especially those of the front of Thaw Hall and inside the Chapel. One of the most interesting scenes during the photographing was that one hundred may be in attendance, including about fifty young people representing the Westminster Fellowship of Mid-South Synod. For the sixth year Rev. Dr. Charles R. Erdman of Princeton will lead the daily Bible Hour. The President of Synodical Society is Mrs. W. J. McPheron of Birmingham, and the Moderat- or of Synod is President Lloyd of Maryville College. For two weeks (August 12-23) there will be at Mary- ville for the first time a seminar for music teachers from over the South conducted by Mr. Guy Maier, noted pianist and teacher. In several former years he has conducted a similar program in Atlanta or Asheville, but this year desires to bring it to Maryville because of the living and music facilities. Mr. Maier holds similar Teachers' Workshops at Juiliard School of Music in New York, Sherwood Music School in Chicago, and Mac- Phail College of Music in Minneapolis. There will be master classes, lectures, private lessons, and evening concerts by well known musicians. from which the picture in the lower right hand corner of this page was made. The log cabin was a painted set on the Maryville campus. In the movie Mr. E. E. McCurry, '34, Dr. Lincoln Barker (psychology), Dr. Augustus Sisk, '17, (mathematics), Dr. David H. Briggs, '19, (psychology), and Mr. Curtis Hughes (music) march out of the log cabin, hold a brief con- ference and disperse. Doesn't Mr. "Mack" look like business with that old musket? The opening music is a bit on the disappointing side which may be due to the mechanics of reproduction of voice on film in this manner, but we hasten to say that it is not the Maryville College Choir that is doing the singing at this point. Some recording of the choir was taken but not of these numbers; therefore it can be said that this part was not sung by them. The College has a copy of the film for its historical record and since it is for the record it will have only a limited amount of use and will not be available for general showing on a lending basis as those copies of the Board will be. This would make a good film for Maryville College groups to plan to show at their gatherings in the future. It is constructive and inspiring and conveys a great deal of information about education on the college and university level in general.
