Emory and Henry has an excellent football record at the date of the writing of
this Maga-ine and promises to be a tough contender. This should be one of the
best games of the season. Maryville has the largest squad it has had in a number
of years, yet only seventeen of the men have ever been out for college football be-
fore. Buy your tickets at the barbecue at half price, (5 5c) but buy them as soon
as you arrive as those handling the tickets must go to the gate in time to handle the
regular crowd there. There will be a reserved section in the bleachers for alumni.
Please make it a point to sign the register at the barbecue.

To Maryville Alumni Everywhere, Greeting!
If this Alumni Magazine is received and read by all to whom it is
mailed by the Alumni OfFice, I have the high privilege of extending
in these words the sincere greetmgs of their Alma Mater to 2,725
Maryville College graduates in forty-seven States and twenty-live terri-
tories and foreign countries. The Magazine will not reach many of
those abroad, for the war has not only closed mails but has sent
Americans home or into other countries, and is sending an increasing
number of Maryville's younger graduates with the armed forces into
training at home and service abroad where the Magazine cannot follow
them. But most alumni will see these \words and join us all in prayer-
ful thought of those others.
Although Maryville is 123 years old, the present living alumni con-
stitute eight-five per cent, of all who have graduated. Before and for
several decades after the Civil War the enrolment was small, and
then for a considerable period the preparatory department was large
and the college students increasing but the graduating, classes still
small. The average number each year receiving degrees v^as less than ten before the year 1900. It reached 100
first in 1929. Since 1930 the number of graduates each year has averaged 120. It was startling to me person-
ally to realise that in the twelve commencements at which I have presided I have handed diplomas to more than
half of all present living graduates. Thus I have a very special interest in writing to Maryville alumni.
Increasing Pressures of War
Maryville is having a good year. The enrolment is somewhat less than in recent peace-time years. But
the Chapel is filled each morning; the freshman class is of good size and has in it a considerable number of young
people directed to Maryville by alumni; the spirit is an earnest one.
But everyone lives in a consciousness of the war; no faculty members have been called into military service
as yet, but more and more students are being called or are enlisting in the various reserves, and doubtless the
calls will increase. The writing of this page has just been interrupted by listening to the President's radio ad-
dress of October 12, in which he expressed the belief that the selective sei-vice age should be lowered to eighteen
and that before another year there may be as many women as men working in war industries. The effects of this
on education are certain to be great. The effects of rising prices and rising taxes and scarcity of materials and
labor are now being felt by all colleges.
Maintaining Liberal Arts Education
A major pressure also is expressed in this remark recently quoted by one of our college presidents from a
man in touch with many colleges, "My fear is that under present war pressures American higher education will
become merely a vast system of vocational schools." That is not an idle fear. The very fact that all our en-
deavors must be geared toward victory in this kind of war leaves no doubt as to the need of extending vocational
training. But even that does not and never can displace the present and abiding necessity for basic liberal arts
education. To balance these two necessities in the service of God and country is the difficult task of Mar^'ville
and a large number of other important American colleges with strong liberal arts traditions. This is the kind
of service Maryville is rendering.
It is both undesirable and impossible to go along in a "business-as-usual" manner. But Maryville is main-
taining a rounded program. Chapel, classes, football, intramurals, music, drama, debate, and the half hundred
other endeavors that make college life are in progress these days. We will have a serious but a good report to
make to the Board of Directors at its Fall Meeting on November 17. The semester will close December 17, and
we will have a new experience when a third of the senior class, the third who attended the Summer Session of
the Accelerated Program, complete their graduation requirements and join the 2,725 alumni to whom these words
of greeting and good wishes are written.

JOHN C. CRAWFORD, JR.
WINIFRED L. PAINTER
THE ALUMNI PRESIDENT'S
As this is being written, the thoughts and activities of all of us are con'
cerned with the titanic struggle being waged throughout the world between
fascism and democracy. This war, unlike all previous ones, is an ideological
war. The outcome will be a closer union of peoples, but the struggle will
determine whether this unity shall come by fascist force or by democracy
adequately meeting the conditions of the time.
Democracy and its freedoms are being challenged today. One of the
freedoms for which we are fighting, and which is an indispensable part of
any democratic nation, is academic freedom. All institutions of learning —
their officers, faculty, students and alumni — necessarily have a heavy stake in
the present world struggle. Christianity, also, is under challenge from the
fascist economy, and Christian colleges are essential fortresses on the home
Maryville College is doing its full part m meeting these challenges, but
not without sacrifices. We, as alumni, can and must contribute to this ef-
fort. This can best be done by an integrated alumni — an active, vitalized
Association. We boast of having more than twenty-seven hundred alumni,
yet only fifteen percent pay dues to our Association. It is hoped that dur-
ing the year more members will feci it their duty to pay current dues.
The publication of the Alumni Magazine and the management of the
Alumni Office is under the direction of our very able Executive Secretary,
Mr. James R. Smith, who is also Public Relations Secretary of the College.
In addition to his other duties, he has been building up files of data con-
cerning alumni, and they have been of incalculable value in recent months
in supplying information upon request to various governmental agencies.
In the promotion of the sale of War Bon.ds, it has been suggested that
alumni can manifest loyalty, not only to their country, but to their alma
mater, by making gifts to the College in the form of War Bonds. Maryville
College has agreed to hold all bonds thus given it until after the duration or
until maturity if requested by the United States. One alumnus, unable to
attend the reunion of his class because of being engaged in war work, con-
tributed the amount his trip to Maryville would have cost to the purchase of
a bond and donated it to the College.
The Annual Homecoming for the alumni is Saturday, October 31, the
program being printed elsewhere in the Magazine. Every one who can come
will find a hearty welcome.
John C. Crawford, Jr., '27.
John C. Crawford, Jr., received the A. B. degree from Maryville College in 1927 and
the LL.B. from Harvard in 1931. He married America Arey Moore, '2S, in 1933.
He is a practicing attorney in Maryville. In 1940 he was elected to the State Senate
from the 4th district, including Blount, Cocke, Hamblen, and Jefferson Counties. He
was reelected by a very large vote this fall.

THE 1942 COMMEiNCEMENT
The 1942 Commencement of Maryville College was
a war-time commencement, as those of 1917 and 1918
had been a quarter of a century before. Already the
ranks of the student body and the graduating class had
lost young men to the armed forces. The war furnish-
ed a sobering background for the pageantry of the oc-
casion, but it could not destroy the interest or the buoy-
ant spirits of the graduates and their undergraduate
fellow-students or of the considerable number of friends
and alumni who thronged the campus for the traditional
ceremonies. Someone suggested that Maryville was far
too experienced to be thrown easily out of its stride or
poise by even so great a catastrophe as war, perhaps be-
cause in its first hundred years, which everyone says
are the hardest, Maryville had passed through four
By a fortunate coincidence, or vdth prophetic vision
as in retrospect it almost seems to have been, the Col-
lege had set its fall opening date back to the first of
September and its Commencement date to May 18.
Thus there was no need to make the emergency change
in dates found necessary by a large proportion of in-
stitutions, in order to permit students to complete the
year before entering military or industrial service or to
make way for war-time accelerated programs.
The first of the Commencement events was the
Senior Chapel program conducted by seniors and m-
cluding the exchange of chapel sittings which has been
a custom for about ten years. On that same evening
the Commencement Play, The Truth About Blayds, was
given by a selected cast of students of all classes, under
the direction of Mrs. West and under the auspices of
the Dramatic Arts section of the Division of Fine Arts.
Saturday, May 16, was Alumni Day. Chapel was at
8:10 a. m. Reunion class luncheons were at nooi,
among them the twent^'-five year class luncheon at the
home of Mark Blaine Crum. The number returning for
the reunions was much reduced by the early date, the
new pressures of war, and the transportatioi difficulties,
but there were some. In the afternoon seniors, parents,
alumni, and others attended the reception at the home
of President and Mrs. Lloyd.
The annual alumni dinner in the evening was surpris-
ingly well attended in view of the conditions. There
were 237 at the tables. The program was interesting
and over in time for the outdoor band concert shortly
after nine. J. Edward Kidder, '16, President of the
Alumni Association, pres'ded; a brief report was made
by the Executive Secretary of the Alumni Association.
The graduating class was presented by Dean of Students
Frank D. McClelland for membership in the Associa-
tion, was received, and responded through the class
president, Ted Holman. The spokesman for the fifty-
year class ('92) was Rev. William David Malcolm; for
the twenty-five-year class ('17) Professor Augustus
Sisk; and for the ten-year class Dr. Lea Callaway.
Various other reunion classes were seated together and
exchanged news and reminiscences.
On the next morning the Baccalaureate service was
held in the Chapel, conducted by President Lloyd,
whose sermon was on "The Open Door" set before
graduates by God as they went from the College into
the uncertainties and compulsions ahead. It was a
realistic but reassuring message. He was assisted in the
service by Rev. J. Edward Kidder, whose son David
was a member of the graduating class, and by Rev.
John A. McAfee, D.D., pastor of the New Providence
Presbyterian Church which annually joins the College
in the Baccalaureate service. The Choir, the Seniors,
and the Faculty, in full regalia, formed the Procession.
For the first time there was a Senior Music Hour in
the Chapel at four o'clock in the afternoon. The
preacher at the seven o'clock Vespers was Chaplain
Frank Lewis Miller, '14, Assistant to the Chief of
Chaplains, U. S. Army, and a Colonel in the Chaplains
Commencement Day (Monday, May 18) found pleas-
ant weather and almost the usual graduation day
crowds. The Board of Directors met from 8:30 a. m.
to 9:30 a. m. to award degrees and ratify the appoint-
ment of faculty and staff for the ensuing year, and
then joined the Academic Procession which entered the
Chapel between rows of junior class girls bearing the
Daisy Chain, as the organ and choir led in the h^'mn
"God of our fathers, whose almighty hand." Rev.
Sidney E. Stringham, D.D., of St. Louis, known to most
alumni as song leader in the February Meetings, whose
daughter Jeanne was in the graduating class, offered the
prayer. Rev. Roy Ewing Vale, D.D., LL.D., of Indian-
apolis, a Director of the College, gave the annual ad-
dress on the subject "In the Shadow of the Great."
President Lloyd, assisted by Dean Hunter and Dean
McClelland, conferred the bachelor's degree on 123
graduates, and the honorary degrees of LL.D., and
D.D. respectively on John Calvin Crawford, '97, of
Maryville, and Frank Lewis Miller, '14, of Washington.
Also Fifty-Year Certificates were awarded to the seven
living members of the Class of 1892, which numbered
twelve at graduation. Of the seven, the following five
viJere present to receive the certificates in person: Mrs.
Annis Duncan Beals, Marjwille; Mr. William Edward
Hamilton, Knoxville; Dr. Ambrose Lafayette Jones,
Greenback: Rev. William McClung, Philadelphia, Pa.;
and Rev. William David Malcolm, Banner Elk, N. C.
Soon after the close of the exercises the visiting,
luncheon, and farewells were over, and the campus,
for several days the scene of many and varied activities,
settled back into a state of calm, quiet, and peace.
ARTISTS' SERIES 1942-1943
The Maryville College Artists' Series has become so
well established and has proved itself so popular and
educationally valuable that it is being continued this
year. This is in face of various difficulties, of which
two chief ones are that of securing the musicians de-
sired and that of attendance by outside patrons who
must travel from Knoxville and elsewhere. But Profes-
sor George D. Howell, Chairman of the Committee on
the Artists' Series, has announced the follov^fing ex-
November 11 — Lucille Browning, Metropolitan Opera
Meazo Soprano, and Rose Dirman, Lyric Soprano.
December 14 — John Gurney, Metropolitan Opera Bass
March or April — The Farbman String Symphony, with
Edith Shiller, Piano Soloist.
Second Annual Benefit Luncheon and Apron Sale
The first Benefit Luneh-
eon and Apron Sale held
a year ago was so successful
that a second one has been
scheduled for Saturday, De-
cember 5, 1942. As last
year the sponsors are Mrs.
Ralph Waldo Lloyd, wife of
the President of the College,
and a committee composed
of the women members of
the Executive Committee of
the Alumni Association and
other women in the Mary-
ville community. The Execu-
tive Committee on Septem-
ber 28 voted to join again
in sponsoring this effort.
There were 196 women
at the lovely luncheon of
last year. Approximately
100 aprons, donated by
alumnae and friends, were
sold to those present. After
paying for the luncheon and
other expenses, there was a
net sum of $206.26 realized
for the "Women's Dormi-
tory Improvement Fund."
This, supplemented by $?i7i
given by Mrs. John Walker,
one of the patronesses of
the event, has made possible
the building of the much
needed modern bathroom
on the first floor of Bald-
win Hall, shown in the ac-
The plan and purpose
of the 1942 Benefit Lunch-
eon and Apron Sale are
similar to those of a year
The time set is 1:H
p. m., Saturday, December
5. The price of the lunch-
eon remains at seventy-
five cents in spite of the
great increase in costs.
Graduates, former students,
and interested friends are asked to donate aprons for the sale.
Every woman is invited to attend the luncheon and to bring or send one or more aprons. Reservations for
the luncheon should be made in advance. Any one who cannot attend and wishes to send a gift of money in
lieu of the luncheon price and aprons may do so. Also those who cannot attend may purchase aprons.
If you are one of the Maryville alumnae who sent an apron last year, you will find genuine satisfaction in
the good the money is doing, and you are invited to send another now. If you are one of the number who did
not send anything last year, you are cordially invited to join the "senders" this year. More aprons than were on
hand could have been sold last year.
Reservations, aprons, and gifts should be sent to "Benefit Luncheon Committee, Alumni Office, Maryville
College, Maryville, Tennessee."

MRS. ROBERTA HOPE LOAN
In July of this year, before starting back to Africa,
Dr. Fred H. Hope established at the College "The
Roberta Hope Loan Scholarship Fund," of $1,000, in
memory of his wife who had died only shortly before.
It is on the Maryville Annuity Plan by which the in-
come earned by the Fund continues to go to the donor
during his lifetime and thereafter is to be used for
student loans or work. It is another expression of the
devotion of Fred Hope to his Alma Mater that he, a
missionary needing so much, should give this to Mary-
ville College from a small family inheritance that had
come to him.
Dr. and Mrs. Hope were in the United States last
year on their regular furlough. The war came and
Mrs. Hope was forbidden to return to Africa. But
he, with the heroic consecration which has sent him
back time after time during the past thirty-five years,
was on the point of starting last spring when Mrs. Hope
became ill and was told that she could not live very
long. He cancelled his plans and they, with one of
their daughters, went to their furlough home in
Winona Lake, Indiana. The end came quietly and in
a victorious Christian trust on April 9, 1942. Dr.
Hope at once made plans to find passage to Africa. Air-
plane travel was not available, all being reserved by
the government. Finally he sailed on a freighter, a
perilous way in the Atlantic these days. But he got
through safely according to word just received. So he
joins his daughter Elisabeth, who is also a missionary
there, for another term of service in West Africa where
he has already invested more than a third of a century.
Before he went he established this memorial to his wife.
One daughter, Winifred, is a senior in Maryville Col-
lege. Another daughter, Roberta, graduated last May.
The campaign for the Fred Hope Fund, contributed
each year by the students and faculty of Mar^'ville
College, will be held in the latter part of November.
THE SUMMER SESSION OF 1942
As part of its War-Time Accelerated Program, Mary-
ville College conducted the first summer session at least
since the Civil War for the twelve weeks from June 9
to August 28, 1942. It proved to be a successful ven-
ture even though the attendance was not large in com-
parison with Maryville's regular session numbers.
The total number of students registered for the
twelve weeks was 158, of whom 82 were men and 76
women. Practically all were regular candidates for the
Maryville College degree, pursuing the war-time ac-
celerated program. There were 18 freshmen entering
for the first time. Approximately half of the faculty
taught during the first six weeks and the other half
during the second six weeks.
Students who took a full schedule earned from
twelve to fourteen semester hours during the summer.
The normal schedule for a student in each six weeks
was two courses. Each course was completed in a six-
weeks term, each class meeting for an eighty-minute
period six da^'s a week, with necessary variations for
Four seniors completed their requirements for gradua-
tion at the end of the summer. Because of work done
in the Summer Session there are probably thirty or
more present seniors who can complete the require-
ments for graduation at the close of the current fall

AN HISTORICAL MAP
The most complete and attractive map ever made of
the town of Maryville has been completed by Nathalia
Wright, "33, Assistant in the College Library. Taking
as a basis a map made by the T. V. A. under auspices
of the Maryville City Planning Commission a year or
two ago. Miss Wright added various points and com-
piled some interesting and useful historical and geo-
graphical information and inscribed it around the bord-
The map is labeled the "Lamar Memorial Library
Edition"" and Miss Wright has applied for a copyright.
The overall si:e of the map and border is approximately
18 by IS inches. Miss Wright's purpose is to use the
money received to build a fund for library improve-
ments. The map sells for fifty cents and may be ob-
tained from the College Book Store, from the College
Library, or from Miss Wright.

THE SYNOD OF MID-SOUTH
MaryviUe College was established under the name
"The Southern and Western Theological Seminary" by
a resolution adopted in October 1819, by the Synod of
Tennessee of the Presbyterian Church in the U. S. A.
From 1819 to 1942 the Directors of Maryvillc College
were elected by the Synod of Tennessee.
In June, 1942, for the first time. Directors of the
College were elected by the new Synod of Mid-South
which has been formed by the consolidation of the
Synods of Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi.
At the meeting of the Synod of Tennessee held on
the MaryviUe College campus in June, 1941, action was
taken favorable to uniting with the other two Synods
in the central South, and they took similar action. The
154th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church m
the U. S. A., on May 26th, 1942, at Milwaukee, Wis-
consin, approved Overture 12 from the Synods of Ala-
bama, Mississippi, and Tennessee, of which three of
the specifications are: (1) "That the Synods of Ala-
bama, Mississippi, and Tennessee are hereby united and
consolidated into one S^'nod, under the name and style
of the Synod of Mid-South." (2) "That this Act shall
take effect at 12 o'clock noon on June 16, 1942." (3)
"That the said Synod of Mid-South as thus constituted
shall meet at MaryviUe, Tennessee, on the 16th day of
June, 1942, at 2 p. m."
This plan was carried out. The Synod of Mid-South
was constituted and its organisation effected on the
campus of MaryviUe College, June 16, 1942, and the
three days following. During those same days the
Women's Synodical Society for Missions of the Synod
of Mid-South was formed by a corresponding con-
The Synod of Mid-South elected the following of-
ficers: Moderator — Rev. Dr. James E. Clarke, Nashville,
Tenn.; Vice Moderator — Rev. Dr. Joseph M. Broady,
Birmingham, Ala.; Stated Clerk and Treasurer — Rev.
C. Edgar Cathey, Nashville, Tenn.; Permanent Clerks —
Rev. Dr. Frank M. Cross, Birmingham, Ala., and Rev.
C. P. Thrailkill, Louisville, Miss. The officers elected
by the Synodical Society included: President — Mrs. D.
W. Proffitt, MaryviUe, Tenn.; Executive Vice Presi-
dents — Mrs. W. J. McPheron, Binningham, Ala., Mrs.
A. N. Penland, Union, Miss., and Mrs. S. H. Lloyd,
These consolidations bring it about that the organic
relationship formerly sustained by MaryviUe College to
the Synod of Tennessee has now been transferred to
the Synod of Mid-South with its more extensive terri-
tory. The Synod and Synodical meetings will be held
on the MaryviUe College campus again in 1943, unless
prevented by the exigencies of war.

THE ALUMNI LIVING ENDOWMENT
From time to time several members of the Alumni
Association and some former students have sent in to
the Alumni Office small contributions toward the cur-
rent college expense. On several occasions interest in
an Alumni Fund has been expressed. A little over a
year ago the matter was taken up with the Class of
1941. They discussed the Fund and decided to initiate
the Fund among the alumni.
The campaign in the Class of 1941 resulted in seven-
ty-six seniors subscribing a total of $657.50 or 4 per-
cent of $16,187.50. Some made subscriptions for un-
specified amounts that could not be considered in the
totals. To date the Class has paid into the Fund
$245.80 or 4 percent on $1,627.33.
The Class of 1942 made the campaign (which is not
yet completed) and are making a good start. They
have already paid in to the Fund $17.00 on individual
pledges and the Class as a group bequeathed to the
College the residue of their treasury, which sum was
A member of the Class of 1923 has contributed
through the Living Endowment, and there will be
others who will want to make use of this channel to
make what contributions they can. The Executive
Committee of the Alumni Association heard a report
and a discussion of the Living Endowment at its meet-
ing on September 28 and endorsed the idea for presenta-
tion to the whole Association.
The term "Living" refers to giving while one is
alive rather than waiting until one has died to make a
bequest. The term "Endowment" refers to the invest-
ment that the College has in its graduates. The con-
tributions to this Fund are regarded as interest on a
principal sum. Ten dollars given annually is 4 per-
cent of $250.00. One may no't be able to give $250.00
to the permanent endowment of the College, but one
can give $10.00 which that $250.00 would have earned,
and the College is relieved of the expense and risk in
investing it. The Alumni Living Endowment Fund is
a channel through which those of us who cannot give
large amounts can give what we are able to give and its
total value will not be lost sight of.
All pledges are made on the basis of desire and
ability and are paid on that same basis. Notices are
sent from the Alumni Office only to prevent over-
sight. If you would like to make a pledge to this
Fund, write the Alumni Office for a pledge card.

THE RADIO VESPER PROGRAM
On Sunday, October 4th, the College broadcast its
seventy-eighth Radio Vesper Program. With the con-
clusion of that broadcast, the program went on a brief
vacation from the air. An announcement will be made
in the near future as to the time the program will be
resumed. If any of you who have heard these pro-
grams have any comment of suggestions to make con-
cerning them, the Alumni or Office would be glad to
hear from you.
ALUMNI OCCUPATIONAL FILE
An occupational file has been started in the Alumni
Office to meet a long felt need for quick access to our
graduates according to their occupational qualifications.
Such a file, if properly built, will enable the Alumni
Office to put a larger number of our graduates in touch
with a greater number of possibilities of employment,
provide opportunity for advancement for those employ-
ed, provide some measure of relief from the possibilities
of a graduate getting stuck on "a dead end job," and
increase the usefulness of Maryville College graduates
to society generally. In the other direction the better
response from the Alumni Office to inquiries from em-
ployers will increase the calls upon the Office for
recommendations of applicants.
Of course it must be understood that the Alumni Of-
fice is not promising to get a specific job for a specific
person. We have studied the methods of much larger
alumni associations in the universities and have found
that their placement programs in no way obligates them
to get jobs for their graduates, but that their program
is entirely one of making as many contacts between
their graduates and prospective employers as possible.
We are seeking to put the Alumni Office of our As-
sociation in a position to do the same thing: increase the
contacts between our graduates and employers.
Building such a file requires your help. If you wish
to be included in it, it will be necessary for you to
fill in the form below and return it to the Office. This
is necessary because we need information concerning
what you have done since graduation as well as that
provided at the time of your graduation. This file
will make the fifth one on the alumni in the Alumni
Office: a permanent file, an alphabetical file, a geo-
graphic file, a class file, and now an occupational file.
In addition to these we have the file of the Committee
on Recommendations which was optional with seniors
until 1942, but which is required for graduation now.
Please fill in the form, clip it, and mail it right away.
Jobs are plentiful now; therefore you may not realize
the value of filing to you and to your fellow graduates,
but remember the condition will be reversed when we
have to readjust after the war, seeking to absorb a
large part of our army in our industrial and economic
