Dear Fellow Alumni: 

Six months ago, after crossing the Pacific by air, I mailed from Shanghai a lettei which was published on I 
page of the October Alumni Magazine. I am writing this from Maryville where I arrived on January 24. 

Between the two letters were three months in China, one week in the Philippines, a month in India, and now 
two months in the United State-. At the request of the Editor I have written for another page a summary oi 
the trip and the purpose for which it was made. 

The Chapel Fire 
Main- ol you already know of the calamity which came to the College near midnight of March 26, when 
an uncontrollable fire destroyed Elisabeth R. Voorhees Chapel. This letter, which, except this paragraph, was 

written before that occurred, is about other things and 1 am letting it stand and writing a brief article elsewhere 
DOUt the fire. But we arc so grieved and absorbed just now by the loss of our beloved and useful Chapel that 
it is only by an effort that I resist the tendency to rewrite the letter around this one subject. It is imperative 
that we undertake at once the tremendous task of rebuilding the Chapel and the Fine Arts facilities destroyed, 
and I shall be saying much about that in the months ahead. May I appeal to all alumni to assist as much as they 
possibly can. There was insurance but of course it could not approach the amount needed to build under 
present conditions the facilities we must have. 

A Vigorous College Year 

One finds that the return of men students to American colleges has changed the complexion of campus life 
markedly during the past two years and especially during the last year. The fact that so large a proportion of 
the men are veterans makes the difference greater than would be the case otherwise. When college closed 
last spring Maryville had 497 students, of whom 119 were men. When college opened for the present year 
there were 833 students, of whom 433 were men; 26S of the men and five women were veterans. Most of 
the G.I.'s at Maryville, as at other colleges, are doing good academic work and are fitting into the College's life 
satisfactorily. There have been fewer personal adjustment problems than might have. been expected after the 
fighting of a war. But, of course, the whole situation makes this a vigorous and at times a difficult year — with 
facilities suddenly crowded, with available additions to faculty and staff scarce, with the revival of athletics and 
other lapsed activities, with steadily increasing prices, and with echoes of all the turmoil of the postwar world. 
But it was good to see the College filled again with the high quality young people whom Maryville attracts. 

It Is the 128th Year 

The end of the academic year, the 128th in the life of Maryville College, falls on May 21, 1947. It is not 
quite accurate to say that this is the 128th Commencement or even the 128th year of college work, because dur- 
ing five academic years between April, 1861 and September. 1866, the College was closed by the Civil War. 
Thus, in fact, we are completing the 123rd college year of classes, but we use the full age of the College to 
designate the year in progress and even the particular Commencement. On the page opposite this one is a 
schedule of appointments for the 1947 Commencement, designated the 128th; it is the 17th since I began my 
service as President; it is the second since the surrender of Japan ended World War II. This 128th year is 
an important one in which the College is re-establishing many prewar activities, making adjustments to an 
overflowing enrolment, and initiating a number of plans, of which the new curriculum is probably the most 

The New Curriculum 

After several years of exploration and two years of specific work, a new curriculum plan has been formu- 
lated and approved by the Faculty, the President, and the Directors for use next fall. Included on another page 
in this issue is a general description of the new plan. 

Next Year 

Five facts about next year are prominently in our minds here just now: 

(1) We must conduct a vigorous campaign for a new Chapel and meanwhile get along without; (2) .ill 
dormitory rooms have been promised and there is a long waiting list; (3) operating prices appear to be going 
up rather than coming down; (4) the new curriculum will be in its first year; (i) we must have an unusually 
large number of new faculty members to care for the enrolment and the additional requirements of the new 
curriculum. We are announcing some increase in tuition, from $75 to $90 a semester, and retaining an increase 
in room and board made at Christmas this year. We wish no increase were necessary for we are permanently 
committed to a policy of "low expense to students," but it seems necessary under present economic conditions. 
ind it leaves our charges still in the lowest brackets found among American colleges. Educational statisticians 
estimate that the nation's college enrolment will not reach its peak before 1950. This year there are over two 
million college students, of whom more than one half are veterans, compared to a total of one and one-thud 
millions, the high prewar mark. While the number of our applications is very large we think it wise to continue 
for the present at least to limit the enrolment to approximately eight hundred, rather than to follow the example 
of the many institutions which have taken far more students than faculty, dormitories, or laboratories warrant.

The annual appeal for the Fred Hope Fund was 
made November 27. The amount subscribed was 
$1,715.35, the largest on record. 

The history of this Fund goes back to 1900 when 
Fred Hope was a student. He was one of a little 
group of students (Fred Schell and Clinton H. Gilling- 
ham were others) who felt that Maryville students 
should have a direct share in financial support of the 

foreign missions enterprise. They collected a fund of 
$50 toward support of a native worker in China. 

Fred Hope himself went to West Africa as a mission- 
ary m 1907. Sometime between 1907 and 1911 the 
Fund, being promoted again, was named for him. The 
campaign became an annual event and the funds were 
sent to Fred Hope for his use until his retirement. 

His last public work was to speak in Voorhees 
Chapel in behalf of this Fund on November 21, 1945. 
He went back to Florida ill and died January 4, 1946. 
He had then retired from active service and was not to 
go back to Africa, but his appeal made a deep im- 

He and President Lloyd talked of the future of 
the Fund. President Lloyd told him of the desire of 
the College to continue to raise a fund each year under 
the name "The Fred Hope Fund." The two of them 
decided that as its inception was for China and its 
use had followed Fred to Africa, its future use should 
be wherever the College, in consultation with the 
Presbyterian Board of Foreign Missions, might 

The 1946-1947 Fund, the first after Fred Hope's 
death, is designated for China, as was the first he 
helped to raise. 


The College Woods make the Maryville College 
campus one of the really beautiful campuses of the 
country. Their aesthetic value is large. The Col- 
lege is fortunate that the "Fathers" were far-sighted 
enough to add them to the front campus on which the 
post-Civil-War college resumed operation. Great oak 
and walnut trees and tall pines like ours do not exist 
extensively in many areas now. 

Occasionally there are also some financial benefits 
that accrue from the College Woods. Trees become 
old and need to be cut and some fall before heavy 
wind; they can be made into lumber, and twice within 
the past dozen years the College has engaged the 
owner of a sawmill to bring his mill into the Woods 
and saw lumber from trees that cannot be preserved 

Last fall approximately 170,000 fe?t of lumber were 
sawed and piled for curing and later use. In these 
clays of lumber scarcity and exorbitant prices this plan 
has unusual value. 


There will be a complimentary breakfast for all 
Maryville College alumni, honorary alumni, former 
students, students, parents of students, faculty, former 
faculty, and directors who may be at the Presbyterian 
General Assembly in Grand Rapids. 

The breakfast will be on Saturday morning. May 24, 
at 7:30 a.m., at "The Colony," 209 Monroe^St., N.W. 
Posters will be placed at the Pantlind Hotel and at the 
Auditorium. All who plan to attend should sign their 
names as early as possible on one of tbiese posters. 

President Lloyd will be present to report on his trip 
abroad and on college plans. 






The pictures printed on this page, on the front cover 
;md elsewhere, tell the story of the Chapel's destruc- 
tion better than words can tell it. But they cannot 
convey the feeling of sorrow, the sense of loss, or the 
tremendous problems which this calamity has created. 

It was about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 26, that 
one of the two college students who, as janitors, lived 
in a room on the ground floor of the Chapel, detected 
smoke in their room, opened the door and found the 
basement hall full of smoke, waked his roommate and 
ran to Carnegie to telephone and obtain help. The 
fire departments of Maryville and Alcoa came and with 
staff and students attempted to halt the fire. But it 
was no use, the flames swept through the building so 
rapidly that within an hour it was in ruins. The pictures 
show something of the terrible and dramatic progress 
of the flames. 

The evidence points to the probability that the 
origin was in the floor of the main auditorium 
near the main entrance doors. Various theories 
about the cause have been offered, but although 
the College continues to explore the possibilities no 
conclusion has yet been reached. There is something 
very perplexing about the fact that there have been 
three fires starting at different spots in the Chapel in 
less than four years. The first was on an afternoon 
in December 1943: the second was just last fall, .it 
about nine o'clock at night on Thanksgiving Day. 
Several thousand dollars damage was done by both of 
these fires. Restoration after the second fire was not 
quite completed when this last destructive fire came. 
The first two began high up in the building at the 
platform end. Why this, a building not occupied in 
the usual way and certainly nol possessing hazards com- 
parable to those in buildings all over the city, should 
be the scene of these three fires is a mystery indeed. 

It was impossible to save anything at all. Even the 
clothes of the two students who discovered the fire 
were burned. The pipe organ, the Steinway Concert 
Grand piano, twenty-one other pianos, a practice organ, 
the furnishings of the Chapel and the studios, the 
stage curtains and lights, the hymn books, the libraries 
of music and recordings, over one hundred choir robes, 
the band uniforms, orchestra and band instruments be- 
longing to the College and to individual teachers and 
students, and everything else in the building, were 
destroyed. The task of replacement of equipment is 
very large as this recital indicates. Already a choir 
robe fund has been initiated by Mrs. Ralph W. Lloyd 
and gifts are being received for these, for other equip- 
ment, and for a new chapel. 

The four walls that were left standing have now 
been taken down and moved away by a contractor en- 
gaged for the purpose. It was found that it would not 
pay to attempt to reuse the walls or even the brick. 

Barber and McMurry. Architects, Knoxville, have 
been engaged to draw plans for rebuilding, facts 
being brought together, preliminary sketches will be 
ready soon, decisions will be made by the Dire. 
and the necessary financial campaign will be outlined 
and organized. Meanwhile alumni are asked to stand 
by ready to help. The love and prayers of all Mary- 
ville men and women are needed just now. 


We have just received a new Addressograph com 
plete with plate cutter, trays and cabinets. If the 
address to which this Magazine is mailed is not correct 
in every detail, please let us know immediately. ft' 
you expect to have a new address by next October, 
please let us have it together with the date it is to 
be changed. 



It was not practicable, or even possible, to engage in 
intercollegiate athletics between the college year of 
1942-1943 and the present year. But the teams came 
back with the men. Maryville College authorities be- 
lieve that a well balanced intercollegiate athletic pro- 
gram has a valuable place in the total physical educa- 
tion plan of the institution. They do not believe in 
the practice of subsidisation now so general in colleges 
as well as universities and Maryville teams are strictly 
amateur teams made up of men who are in college on 
exactly the same basis as are other students. There 
are none of the concessions or enticements commonly 
called "athletic scholarships." Because of this policy 
the College does not at present belong to an athletic 
conference, having withdrawn before the war because 
all of the existing conferences now permit subsidisa- 
tion. Maryville is working with Sewanee and a few 
others for a genuinely amateur conference. 

A college without subsidisation as an inducement 
to athletes is admittedly at a disadvantage. But Mary- 
ville is getting along all right. 


In football our team won nine straight games in 
the regular season, was invited to play in the Tangerine 
Bowl game at Orlando, Florida, on New Year's Day 
and there lost the only game of the year. Following 
are the schedule and scores. 

September 21 Maryville — 33 Hiwassee —

November 22 Maryville — 41 Tusculum — 

January 1 Maryville — 6 Catawba — 31 


The results in basketball were not so impressive but 
were good, especially in view of the fact that the squad 
was composed almost wholly of new men and there 
was little chance for work together until after the 
long Christmas vacation that ended at the middle of 
January. Following are the results: 

Maryville — 49 Hiwassee — 34

For many years the Maryville wrestling team has 
been a strong contender among colleges and universities 
of all sises. The current season was no exception, even 
though the final count was five matches won, one lost, 
and two tied. Here are the scores: Maryville — 26, 


Georgia Tech — 10; Maryville — 18, Chattanooga — 16; 
Maryville — 21, Vanderbilt — 9; Maryville — 13, Auburn

Lincoln Memorial University here on May 10. It is 
expected that about three other matches will be 


Under provisions of the Mead Act, the College has 
obtained two temporary buildings to supplement 
present facilities for the training of veterans. These 
buildings are being constructed from surplus buildings 
located at Camp Forrest, Tullahoma, Tennessee. The 
work of tearing down the structures, transporting 
them to Maryville and setting them up again on the 
College campus is being carried on by a contracting 
firm employed by the Federal Works Agency, with 
no cost to the College. 

One of the buildings, a six-room frame structure 
25 by 45 feet in sise, has been erected south of 
Anderson Hall, near the site of the old heating plant. 
Although originally intended to furnish additional of- 
fice space, this building is being used temporarily for 
music students and practice rooms. Painted inside and 
outside, it presents a surprisingly neat appearance, in 
view of the materials used and the temporary nature 
of the building. 

A larger structure, 60 by 85 feet in sise, is being 
erected between Science and Bartlett Halls. It will 
serve as a supplementary gymnasium and recreational 
building. The contract calls for a new maple floor 
to be laid over the present rough floor, and a clearance 
of 20 feet between floor and ceiling, with no interior 
supports. This building will furnish additional much- 
needed floor space for intramural athletics and other 
recreational activities. 






Each of these buildings is to be equipped at govern- 
ment expense, provided such surplus equipment is 
available. The office building will have desks, type- 
writers, chairs, tables and file cabinets. The gym- 
nasium will be equipped with various items of gym- 
nasium apparatus. Although temporary in nature, 
these buildings should serve well for several years, and 
will be invaluable in the present emergency. 

Three other temporary buildings were approved by 
the Federal Office of Education for Maryville College, 
a building with music practice rooms, a recreation 
center, and a dramatic art studio and workshop. The 
appropriation for this purpose, however, has become 
exhausted, so it is not likely the additional buildings 
will be available. 


Six members of the class of 1946 were elected to 
membership in Alpha Gamma Sigma, local scholarship 
honor society. In December, 1945, Carol Titus, now 
Mrs. Donald Hardy with residence in India; and in 
February, 1946, Olinde K. Ahrcns, Margaret M. Cross. 
now Mrs. Richard Scruggs, Catherine Sisk, now Mrs. 
Harold Kidder, Jane Trotter, and Betty Wells. 

Of the class of 1947, nine members have been elect- 
ed to membership, three in December. 

Betty C. Congleton, Mary Julia Turk, now Mrs. 
Robert Schwannebeck, Vera Ross, now Mrs. Rupert 
Boyatt, and in February: Jayne Shouse, Mary C. Case, 
Lilybel Gunn, Alnri Lancaster. Carolyn Ulrich, and 
Fred Wilson. 

The 1946 Recognition Day Address was delivered by 
Dr. Archibald Henderson of the University of North 
Carolina on April 30. 

The 1947 address was by Dr. Alwin Thaler of 
the University of Tennessee on April 23. 


Mrs. R. N. Hood (Sarah M. Henry, '77) died in 
Knoxville, August 21, 1946. She had held the honor 
of being the oldest living graduate of Maryville Col- 
lege for a number of years. The honor now falls to 
Mrs. Arthur Cort (Nellie Eugenia Bartlett, '78). 

Mrs. D. A. Heron (Sue Sloan Walker, '83) died at 
Maryville, Tennessee, August 22, 1946. The Shannon- 
dale Church here was the first pastorate of her husband 
(also a Maryville graduate) , but very soon they moved 
to Ohio and finally to Wooster where Jessie. Louise, 
Ruth, and David took their college degrees. On the 
death of Mr. Heron the family returned to Maryville 
where Dorothy took her B.A. degree and where, in 
1919, Jessie Sloan Heron became a member of the 
English teaching staff of the College. 

Will E. Parham, Ex. '80, died at his home in M r 
ville on December 28, 1946. 

Andrew Lamar Campbell, "90, died March 19, 1946. 

Mason A. Bartlett. Ex. '95, died January. 1947, at 
Doctor's Hospital. Maryville, after several week- of ill- 
ness. He was the son of Dr. P. M. Bartlett. former 
president of Maryville College, .ind is survived bv his 
brother. Dr. W. T. Bartlett. '01. 

Leo Alexander, '97, died December 26. 1943. 

William Divine Hammontree. '01, died on August 
19, 1946, after a month's illness. 

Rev. and Mrs. William Preston Peyton, Ex. '15, were 
found dead on their garage floor in Arlington. Virginia, 
February 5, 1947. Evidently they were killed bv gas 
fumes from their car as they were attempting to tie 
ige on their radiator. Mr. Peyton was rector of 
tin- Epiphany and Grace Churches in the Northern 
section of Arlington. 

Isabel Stuart Mitchell. '05, after many successful 
years as a teacher in New Haven, Connecticut, died 
On i Vtoher 28. 1946.

Dr. Earl R. North, '01, died suddenly on November 
28, 1946, in Cincinnati. He was also a graduate of 
Auburn Seminary. After serving pastorates in Ash- 
tabula, Ohio, and Shelbyville, Indiana, he entered Y. 
M.C.A. work during the first World War. Since 1925 
he has been the Executive Secretary of the Presbytery 
of Cincinnati and Stated Clerk since 1933. In 1940-41

Ralph W. Lloyd 

The October issue of the Alumni Magazine carried 
reports that I was in China as a member of a deputa- 
tion sent out by the Board of Foreign Missions of the 
Presbyterian Church in the U. S. A. I had left Mary- 

ville on August 21; I returned on January 24. The 
Editor has asked me to write a sketch of the mission and 
the journey. 

The Journey 

American Air Lines to New York, United Air Lines 
to San Francisco, Naval Air Transport Service to 
Shanghai, landing at Pearl Harbor, Johnston Island, 
Kwajalein, Guam, and Okinawa, and arriving in 
Shanghai on August 30. Rev. Dr. Lloyd S. Ruland, 
of New York, Secretary for China of the Presbyterian 
Board of Foreign Missions, and I crossed the Pacific 
together. After ten days we were joined by two 
other members of our Deputation, Dr. William J. 
Barnes, a physician of Englewood, New Jersey, and 
Rev. Dr. John B. Weir, of Dehra Dun, India, Secre- 
tary of our India Council. On September 16 we 
started a two months' tour of the interior of China. 
Three of us flew north on a plane of the China Na- 
tional Aviation Corporation (48% Pan American and 
using American pilots) over the Communist lines to 
Tsinan, the capital of Shangtung and seat of Cheeloo 
University and other important work in which our 
Church participates. After two days we flew on 
to Peking where we were joined by Dr. Weir and by 
Dr. Walline and Dr. Wells of our China Emergency 
Executive Committee, and later by Miss Margaret 
Shannon, of New York, the fifth member of our 
Deputation, who had crossed the Pacific by ship. 
Miss Shannon is Secretary for Women's Work of the 
Board of Foreign Missions. Thus our study was well 
under way. 

After two weeks we went by air south to Nanking, 
then, after two more weeks, west to Hankow and 
south to Changsha, Siangtan, Hengyang, Chenhsien, 
and Canton. At the middle of November we flew 
back to Shanghai for three weeks of conferences with 
Chinese Christians and missionaries from all parts of 
China, as at other principal cities we had held con- 
ferences with leaders from points distant from those 
cities. By the end of the first week of December our 
report to the Board had been formulated and the 
Deputation started home by various routes. 

I had made plans to extend my visitation to our 
mission work in the Philippines and India. So I flew 
to Manila and through the good agencies of our mis- 
sionary leaders visited a number of our important 
centers in the Islands. A week later I flew back to 
Shanghai, then westward across China, via Kunming, 
over the Hump and Burma to Calcutta. Then fol- 
lowed a month of intensive visitation across the North 
India and Punjab Missions, Christmas with Dr. Weir at 
Dehra Dun, and arrival at Karachi on the west coast 
in time to take a BOAC (British) seaplane for London. 

We flew by day and put up by night at Basra, Iraq, 
at Cairo, Egypt, and at Marseilles, France. On suc- 
cessive days our flying boat landed on the Euphrates 
River, the Nile River, the Mediterranean, and the 
English Channel. After three days in London I took 
an American Overseas Airlines "Constellation" for 
Ireland, Newfoundland, and New York, leaving Lon- 
don at 2:40 p.m. and landing at LaGuardia Field at 
3:20 a.m. (of course turning the clock back several 
times enroute) . Next day I flew home and was given 


.i hearty welcome by family, students, Faculty, and 
neighbors. 1 had been gone five months and three 
days, had circled the globe, had travelled 36,000 miles 
of which 32,000 were by air, had been free of accident 
and illness. I lost fifteen pounds of weight and three 
inches of waistline but could well spare both. My 
present fear is that I may gain them back. 

In Shanghai I saw Orrin R. "Hornybuck" Magill, 
ex. '09, who was a member of the famous football team 
of 1906 and has long been in YMCA work in China. 
In Peking my host was Wallace C. Merwin, ex. '27, 
who is serving as chairman of our Presbyterian work in 
North China. In Manila I stayed in the same build- 
ing with Alexander Christie, '36, who is treasurer of 
our work in that country, and I visited the grave of Dr. 
Charles N. Magill, '99, who died while interned by the 
Japanese during the war after almost a half century of 
notable missionary work in the Philippines. In Ferose- 
pur, India, I saw Dr. Dorothy Lee Ferris, '28, who is 
in charge of the hospital and a large medical program 
there. And elsewhere I was in touch with other 
Maryville people or learned of their work. 

The Mission 

Our purpose in going has been somewhat in evidence 
in the review of the trip itself. But I must write 
more. Sending out deputations to survey and report 
on war-torn countries where the Churches have had 
missionary work has been a rather general postwar pro- 
cedure. The Presbyterian Church in the U. S. A. has 
so far sent three — one to Europe, one to the Philip- 
pines and Siam, and one to China — and is planning at 
least one more, to Japan and Korea. Some other 
denominations have been doing likewise. In China we 
met several such representatives. 

China is the country in which our Church has had 
its most extensive work. I was asked to go partly 
because of our considerable participation in Christian 
colleges and schools there and because of Maryville 
College's Christian program and missionary spirit. Our 
three months' inquiry included more than ?,000 miles 
of travel within China, visitation to mission stations, 
missionaries, churches, Chinese church leaders, colleges 
and other schools, hospitals, cities and villages, public 
officials, such Christian institutions as the YMCA, and 
other enterprises and people related to the Church's 
task or useful in forming estimates and judgments. We 
attended important meetings of the General Council of 
the Church of Christ in China and the National 
Christian Council. We conferred with the American 
Ambassador to China, Dr. J. Leighton Stuart, with 
( reneral Marshall, with Madam Chiang Kai shek, 
with the American Consul Generals in Shanghai and 
elsewhere, and with various Chinese officials. We 
brought to such centers as Changsha. Canton, and 
Shanghai representatives of outlying districts we could 
not visit, for report and counsel. We held a two week 
planning .-(inference with more than sixty Chinese 
Christian leaders and missionaries from throughout 

Out of this process our Deputation formulated tor 
our Board of Foreign Missions a report and an extend- 
ed body of recommendations under the following nine 

heads: Administrative Organization, The Lite and Work 
of th< Church and Women's Work Within the Church, 
Educational Work, Medial Work, Cooperative Work, 
Personnel, The Restoration Fund, Finance Report, 
I'm iperty. 

Since my return home I have been to New York 
twice for presentations of this report. The Hoard 1 
adopted some of the recommendations and is consider- 
ing the others as rapidly as possible. The two great 
problems ahead are those of finding sufficient funds and 
sufficient missionaries to do what needs to be done in 
China and in other countries as well. For example, 
in the China educational field alone we now have obli- 
gations in five universities, two medical colleges, two 
or more theological seminaries, three regional training 
schools for women church workers, ten or more other 
training schools for women workers, ten or more 
nurses training schools, thirty senior and junior middle 
schools, one school for the blind and one for the 
deaf, to say nothing of our direct or indirect relation 
to several hundred elementary schools and kinder- 
gartens, and our opportunity to place missionary per- 
sonnel in Government universities and other institu- 
tions. Some of the Christian schools lost their build- 
ings in the war, all lost practically their entire equip- 
ment, all have insufficient faculty and especially 
Christian faculty, and all have inadequate operating 
funds. Add to this the vast needs of the churches, 
chapels, and medical centers, and the demands are 
staggering indeed. 

The call is the more imperative because the way is 
open to Christian work in China. Missionaries are 
welcome and wanted by officials and common people, 
by Christians and non-Christians alike. Christian ed- 
ucational and medical institutions are earnestly desired 
and overwhelmingly patronised. There is serious 
conflict in China and if the Communists should over- 
throw the Government the attitude toward Christian 
missions would be uncertain. But such an overthrow 
is not expected and the overwhelming body of Chinese 
leaders urgently ask our western Churches to continue 
and increase their work. The end of the foreign mis- 
sionary enterprise in China (or elsewhere) will not be 
in our generation, with ninety-nine per cent of Chinese 
people yet to be won for Christ and a nation with 
one fourth of the world's population to be made 
Christian. There is no more challenging opportunitv 
for the investment of money or of life. There is 
no more rewarding service open to the youth of our 
American churches and colleges. 

Similar words may be written concerning the Philip- 
pines and India. Our own son, Hal. who graduated 
from Maryville in 1943 and from McCormick Seminarv 
in 1946, is now a special-term missionary in the 
Philippines under our Foreign Board (I left Manila 
two weeks before he arrived and so missed seeing him 

India was not over run by war but she face- a new- 
crisis as she face- independence. Courage and patience 
will be needed by the Christian community there and 
by the sending Churches. The Philippine-; have an 
immense physical rebuilding program ahead for the 
war destroyed whole cities. China suffered less from 


property destruction than might have been expected, 
but the damage is very deep. The Japanese invasion 
lasted eight long years. People are still hurt and 
fatigued. The Chinese Church remains vital but it 
was weakened and disorganized. Restoration and 
long range encouragement and assistance are essential. 

Our mission was to discover how much and how 
soon and how! The American Church's mission is to 
find a way to rebuild and renew and reinforce the 
Christian enterprise all around the world! And Mary- 
ville has always had a share in that kind of mission.

Lois C. Wilson continues with her mission work at Nabotiyeh, 
Lebanon. A recent letter corrects earlier information re- 
ported in the Magazine to the effect that she had received 
the Ph. D. degree from the Hartford Seminary Foundation. 
She reports that the opportunity to return to her work in 
Syria came before she had finished her requirements; and 
since such opportunities were rare during war years, she 
left her work uncompleted and returned to her mission post. 
She was given special permission to finish the work on the 
field, but has not found the time to do it.

The new curriculum which wili go into effect at 
Maryville College next September is the result of 
studies started before the war. interrupted somewhat 
by the intrusions of the war program, an J resumed a 
year ago. 
The major changes arc three: 

I. A revised program of general graduation require- 
ments different from that formerly in effect only 
in details. Something like forty per cent of the 
student's work is prescribed in the fields of: 
Science: Social Science: Bible. Religion, and 
Philosophy; English Language and Literature. 
Foreign Languages. Perhaps the most marked 
new item in this program is the year Survey in 
Social Science (Economics. Political 
Sociology). Also full major sequences are inaugu 
rated in Business Administration. School Music. 
Physical Education, and Speech. 
H. The reorganization of" the courses offered so as to 
give all courses as tour semester hour units, in- 
stead oi as three. This is designed to enable 
both student and teacher to attain greater con- 
centration of effort. Normally the student's load 
will be lour courses and the teacher will teach 
four classes. A superior student after the fresh- 


New Curriculum — (Continued) 

man year may be permitted five courses. 

is an effort to avoid the fragmentation and scatter- 
ing of effort that has been too much the rule 
under a more diverse plan of courses. 
III. The institution of a program of Special Studies 
(individualized study under supervision and a 
thesis) to be carried out by all students in the 
last half of the junior and the first half of the 
senior year. This work is to be, while it is in 
progress, in lieu of one course, the student normal- 
ly carrying only three other courses. The faculty 
supervisor of such students is also to be released 
from one course for each eight students under his 
supervision The work will be in the student's 
major field and, while not expected to be of re- 
search level, may take many forms varying with 
the individual student and with the nature of the 
subject. It is not assumed that brilliant papers 
will be written by all. but it is a hope, bolstered 
by some experience, that even the weaker student 
will be called out and developed in a way not 
possible under the old classroom pattern of treat- 
ment. Some of us even hope for an aroused 
intellectual spirit on the campus — granted always 
that we have the convinced cooperation of the 
faculty — in which faculty and students will to- 
gether participate. 

The faculty supervisor will work closely with 
these students through the year, but in matters of 
form and style a general editor, who will prob- 
ably be a member of the library staff, will have 
final word. 

The institution of these changes is not expected 
greatly to increase the instructional item in the 
College budget. 


Since 1938 President Lloyd has been a member and 
since 1941 the Chairman of the Department of Church 
Cooperation and Union of the Office of the General 
Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the U. S. A. 
As Chairman he is responsible for presenting the re- 
ports to General Assembly, introducing fraternal visit- 
ors, and other matters. The Department is the 
channel of contact with other Churches and church 
and religious bodies such as the American Bible So- 
ciety, the Federal and World Council of Churches, the 
Lord's Day Alliance, and the like. Perhaps its better 
known duties are those of conducting church union 

The two principal negotiations of recent years have 
been those with the Presbyterian Church in the U. S. 
(Southern) and the Protestant Episcopal Church. 
President Lloyd has been almost from the beginning 
on the responsible committees in both of these negotia- 
tions. At its General Convention last fall the Protest- 
ant Episcopal Church declined to transmit for study 
a plan of union which had been prepared by a joint 
Presbyterian-Episcopal committee, and the future of the 
negotiations is at present uncertain. 

However, there is encouraging progress in the re- 
union negotiations of the Presbyterian Church in the 
U. S. A. and the Presbyterian Church in the U. S. 
In 194? the two Presbyterian General Assemblies re- 

ceived and transmitted to ministers of the Churches for 
This study and report a tentative plan of reunion and a 
constitution. Since that time considerable revision has 
been made. In March of this year, the joint drafting 
committee and the Department and Permanent Com- 
mittee of Church Cooperation and Union of the respec- 
tive Churches, meeting in Cincinnati, agreed upon a 
revised tentative Plan of Reunion and Constitution for 
transmission to the respective General Assemblies with 
the recommendation that it be transmitted to the 
Presbyteries of the two Churches for "study and com- 
ment." It is the hope that the Plan, as it may be 
revised by the committees during the year, will come 
back to the General Assemblies in 1948 for vote and 
transmission to the Presbyteries for their votes. If this 
is done and the required affirmative vote is given in 
both Churches, a reunion might be voted in 1949 and 
consummated in 1950. This is an end for which many 
in both Churches are working and praying. 


Another successful series of the February Meetings 
has come and gone. Seeing them through was one of 
President Lloyd's first activities after his return from 
abroad. Rev. Dr. John H. Gardner, Jr., Pastor of 
the First Presbyterian Church, Baltimore, preached six- 
teen thoughtful and earnest sermons that presented 
various aspects of the Christian message, and filled a 
steady schedule of personal interviews. Rev. Dr. 
Sidney E. Stringham, Pastor of the New McKcndree 
Methodist Church, Jackson, Missouri, led the singing 
for the twenty-fifth time. The campus is a more 
spiritual place because of this 71st series of the Meet- 
ings that continue through years of war and peace. 


One of the interesting events on the campus during 
the current college year was the marriage of Dr. 
Susan A. Green, long Professor of Biology, to Mr. 
Louis A. Black, for the past fifteen years Director of 
Maintenance. The wedding was performed on De- 
cember 30 by Dr. Horace E. Orr. Needless to say, Mr. 
and Mrs. Black not only had the interest of students 
and faculty but the heartiest good wishes. Mrs. Black 
continues to serve as Professor of Biology and Chair- 
man of the Division of Science and Mr. Black con- 
tinues his work on the college staff. She had been 
living in the Studio House and when she was married 
just moved across the street to Mr. Black's house. The 
Alumni Magazine offers congratulations and good
