MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



OCTOBER 1943 



HOMECOMING AND FOUNDER'S DAY 



The Founders' Day exercises were held in the College 
Chapel at eight o'clock on October 30. The general 
theme was "Maryville College During Other Wars." 
Some general introductory remarks and sketches of the 
relationship of Maryville to the war with Mexico and 
the war between the States were given by President 
Lloyd. Dr. Verton M. Queener. Professor of History 
at Maryville College, now on leave of absence for 
Government service in Washington, spoke on "Ten 
Minutes of the War with Spain." and Dr. Susan A. 
Green, who has been Professor of Biology at Maryville 
College since 1906, spoke on "Ten Minutes of the 
First World War." The choir sang two anthems and 
various responses. A brief responsive memorial service 
completed the exercises. 

The annual Homecoming was held on the evening of 
October 30. Supper was served on the baseball field 
to the visiting alumni and the students at 5:30 p. m. 
This was followed by a program at which the Rev. 
Floyd R. Watt. '21. President of the Alumni Associa- 
tion, presided. The Queen of the Homecoming. 
Catherine Payne, of the Class of 1946. elected by the 



students, and her attendants were introduced and seated 
on a dias covered in orange and garnet. 

The service flag, pictured on the back cover, was pre- 
sented by Edith Monroe, vice president of the Class 
of 194 3 to the President of the Alumni Association 
who in turn presented it to President Lloyd of the 
College, who accepted it in behalf of the College and 
announced that it would be bung in the Chapel. The 
flag was unfurled from temporary standards. Follow- 
ing these exercises there was a football game played on 
the college field between Everett High School of Mary- 
ville and the Tennessee School for the Deaf of Knox- 
ville. 

The Homecoming committees appointed by the 
Alumni Executive Committee were: Food Committee —

Dear Fellow Alumni: 

If an individual should enter his 125th year on the earth it would 
be heralded abroad. Well, it is quite an achievement for a college also. 
Only 49 or 50 of the more than 1700 higher institutions in the United 
States have yet reached that age. Maryville College joined them when 
its Fall Semester began on August 31. In no other of the past 125 
years or of the past 325 years in America have there been parallel con- 
ditions. Never before have colleges opened when the nation's law 
made it impossible for any boy over eighteen to enroll except he be in 
some military classification or in uniform. Never before have American 
colleges been so largely used for military training, almost one tenth of 
the nation's vast armed forces being in uniform on college campuses 
according to some estimates. 

Enrolment 

Maryville College under a Government contract is engaged in train- 
ing several hundred preflight candidates of the Army Air Forces. Each 
of these men is scheduled to remain with us five months, moving in 
and out in small contingents at regular intervals. With these we have as many civilian students as we can 
well handle. The dining hall is filled to the last table, with a few "second tables" necessary. The top floor of 
Carnegie is crowded with our civilian boys. This floor is not being used by the Army because of standard 
regulations forbidding housing soldiers above the fourth floor in that type of building. The number of civilian 
students enrolled is: girls 353, boys 68, a total of 421. Of these, 124 are freshman girls and 24 are freshman boys. 
This means that we have about 50% of our normal enrolment of recent years, 90% of our usual number of 
girls, 15 r /f of our usual number of boys, and 40% of our usual freshman class. 

The large combined enrolment, the operation of two campus programs instead of the normal one, the un- 
relenting non-holiday schedule of the Army, the loss of a number of our important people, and the manifold 
pressures of war, create new and vigorous demands on staff and faculty. Meeting those demands is a significant 
part of the contribution of Maryville officers and teachers to the war effort. 

Recent Losses 

The war has taken a number of our strong officers and teachers. And once more death has entered our 
circle. The wholly unexpected going of Treasurer Proffitt, reported elsewhere in the Alumni Magazine, has laid 
upon the College a heavy loss and upon all of us a deep sorrow. In the thirteen years of my work at Maryville 
many of the notable leaders in Maryville's modern history have been lost by death — Dean Barnes, Miss Clemens 
Miss Jones, Dr. McMurray, Dr. Cummings, Dr. Giffen, Dr. Rodgers, Mr. Thrower, and now Mr. Proffitt. It is 
only the providence of God which enables the College to continue and increase in face of these losses and those 
which have resulted from retirements. But that providence has so far enabled us. 

After The War 

We must be ready for the day when our prayers and efforts for the end of the war are successful. Millions 
of boys will take off their uniforms; many will return to college, some partly disabled; jobs will be fewer and 
workers more numerous and more girls will go to college than now do so; money will be less plentiful and 
possibly less valuable; government subsidies for students from the armed forces appear probable; college liberal 
arts training will have been pushed more and more aside by the specialised war-time training programs: spiritual 
losses will have to be recovered; a whole world will be stunned and awaitincr services of reconstruction 
where destruction rages now. To see that Maryville College may be strong enough, wise enough, and Christian 
enough to play its due part in those days is also part of the present task of all who love her.

THE ALUMNI PRESIDENT'S 
MESSAGE 

Greetings to the many members of our Alumni Association! Some of 
you are in Maryville and Blount County; others are in East Tennessee; many 
others are scattered throughout the nation; and never has there been a time 
when so many of you were scattered in so many foreign countries as today. 

Our Alma Mater continues her program of Christian training which she 
has specialised in for almost 125 years. She has had to readjust her program 
to meet the new needs that have arisen due to war conditions. The members 
of the faculty are overworked in their determination to solve the new prob- 
lems brought about by the revised schedule. The students also are very 
busy m their desire to prepare themselves for some post of usefulness which 
they fear will be calling before their preparation is completed. 

Your Executive Committee is endeavoring to carry on the work of the 
Association m these difficult days. The annual Homecoming was set for 
Saturday, October 30, details of which you will find in another section of this 
Magasine. Alumni Day is set for May 13. Likewise, the Alumni Magazine 
will be published as in recent years. 

Your Executive Secretary's office is getting to be quite a source of in- 
formation and thus renders a great service to fellow- Alumni and various 
agencies as opportunities afford themselves. Your cooperation in sending in 
your dues ($2.00 per year) to Mr. James R. Smith, also any news of interest 
about yourself or some fellow-Alumni whom you may know about, will be of 
great value in helping to carry on the work of our Association. 

Floyd R. Watt, '21.

JAMES R. SMITH 



DEATH OF TREASURER PROFFITT 

Mr. Fred Lowry Proffitt, '07, Treasurer of Maryville 
College for the past twenty-nine years, died after a brief 
illness on Thursday, September 30. He had been to a 
physician for an examination a few days before and had been 
told he must take an extended rest because of the condition 
of his heart. He was able to be out on Wednesday but 
that night suffered a severe heart attack, was taken to a 
Knoxville hospital in the morning, and died in the afternoon. 
The funeral service was conducted in the College Chapel on 
October 3, with President Ralph W. Lloyd and Rev. Dr. 
W. H. Crothers officiating, and burial was in the College 
Cemetery on the campus. 

This unexpected death of Mr. Proffitt came as a pro- 
found shock and sorrow to his host of friends and is a 
heavy loss to Maryville College, which he served so long 
and devotedly. He was but sixty-one years old. 

Few people who have been connected with the College 
were known to more former students or to more people in 
East Tennessee. Mr. Proffitt lived practically all his life near 
or in Maryville. He was connected with the College for 44 
years, nine years as a student, three as Instructor in Mathe- 
matics and Physics and Proctor of Carnegie Hall, three as 
Principal of the Preparatory Department and Professor of 
Education, and twenty-nine as Treasurer. He was a Director 
of the College for thirty years, was Recorder and Treasurer 
of the Directors as well as Treasurer of the College for 
twenty-nine years. In the 124 years since the founding of 
the College he is the seventh in the succession of Recorders and sixth in the succession of Treasurers. His term 
as Recorder has been longest with the exception of one and his term as Treasurer longest with the exception 
of one. At his death he was First Vice President of the Southern Association of College and University 
Business Officers. 

President Lloyd based his address at the funeral service on these words in Nehemiah 7:2, "He was a faith- 
ful man, and feared God above many." The address reviewed the life of Mr. Proffitt, emphasizing that these 
words applied to him among his people, in his home, in the Church, in the community, and in the College. 




OTHER FACULTY LOSSES 

The retirement of Librarian Horace L. Ellis, because 
of age, announced in the April issue of the Alumni 
Magazine, became effective at the last Commencement 
and he was elected Librarian Emeritus. Miss Martha 
Ruth Grierson, Assistant Librarian, was elected Libra- 



Associate Professor Raymond J. Dollenmayer became 
a Chaplain in the Navy in September. 

Assistant Professor Richard W. Vine found it neces- 
sary to resign during the summer and continue work 
with the Clinton government project while awaiting 
orders as to military service. 

Miss Genevieve L. Cowen, Instructor in Music, ac- 
cepted a position at Tennessee Wesleyan College be- 



cause until the semester opened the number of teachers 
to be needed at Maryville was uncertain. 

Mrs. Emma Lee Worley, who for many years was 
head of one of the dormitories and more recently has 
given part time as assistant to the Manager of the Din- 
ing Hall, is this year giving full time to duties at home 
where she and her sister, "Miss Mollie" Caldwell, live 
together. 

Due to reduced enrolment Mrs. West is handling all 
of the work in Dramatic Art. Last year Annarine 
Atkins Hamilton, '23, gave part time as Instructor. 

Floice M. Smith, Irma H. Criswell, '43, and Catha- 
rine Pond Minear, '39, have given up their work in 
the Alumni Office, the Personnel Office, and the Physi- 
cal Education faculty respectively. Harriet M. Miller, 

'40, Assistant in the Student-Help Office, has recently 
been called home by the illness of her parents. 



FIVE 



HONORARY DEGREES 



ELECTION OF COLLEGE DIRECTORS 



Two honorary degrees 
were conferred at the May 
Commencement. The de- 
gree of LL.D. was confer- 
red on Colonel Joseph 
Benjamin Pate, '04, who 
has made a distinguished 
record as an officer in the 
U. S. Army. This in- 
cludes a notable service 
in diplomatic missions in 
the Latin American coun- 
tries. 

The degree of D.D. was 
conferred on Rev. Lester 
Everett Bond, '15, pastor 
of the First Community 
Church of Chula Vista, 
Calif., and formerly a mem- 
ber of the Maryville 
faculty. Dr. Bond has 
been a leader in several 
spheres of service and 
since Commencement has 
become an army Chaplain. 



COMMENCEMENT AND GRADUATIONS 

The two nouns above are used advisedly in the 
singular and the plural. Since the last issue of the 
Alumni Magazine there have been one commencement 
and three graduations. 

On May 16 and 17, the 124th Commencement exer- 
cises were held. President Lloyd preached the Bac- 
calaureate sermon; Colonel J. B. Pate, '04, was the 
Vesper speaker; Rev. Lester E. Bond, '15, was the 
Commencement speaker. The number of graduates 
that day was 85; there had been 36 in December and 
14 more were to complete their work in the summer 
of 1943, making a total of 135 listed in the Class of 
1943. 

In the Accelerated Program there are students com- 
pleting their graduation requirements at the end of 
each semester and term. Recognition services are 
held each time but formal graduation exercises arc 
held only once a year. 

* * * 




The Synod of Mid-South on June 24 re-elected as 
Directors of Maryville College, in the Class of 1946, 
the following: Rev. Dr. Theron Alexander, of Hum- 
boldt; Judge John C. Crawford, of Maryville; Rev. 
Dr. Charles R. Erclman, of Princeton, N. J.; Joe C. 
Gamble, of Maryville; Dr. Fred H. Hope, of Elat, West 
Africa; President Ralph W. Lloyd, of Maryville; Rev. 
Dr. T. J. Miles, of Maryville; Fred L. Proffitt, of 
Maryville; Rev. Dr. John V. Stephens, Jr., of Alliance, 
Ohio; Rev. Dr. Roy E. Vale, of Indianapolis, Ind.; 
John H. Webb, of Maryville. 

Also the following new Directors were elected to 
rill vacancies: Rev. Dr. Stuart N. Hutchison, of Pitts- 
burgh, Pa., in the Class of 1946, to fill the vacancy 
caused by the death of Rev. Dr. John M. Alexander; 
Mr. Ernest Koella, of Rockford, in the Class of 1945, 
to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Mr. J. 
Willison Smith; Rev. C. E. Cathey, '25, of Nashville, 
in the Class of 1944, to fill the vacancy caused by the 
death of Mr. William Alexander Lyle; Rev. Dr. R. Dale 
LeCount, of Birmingham, Ala., in the Class of 1944, to 
fill the vacancy caused by the death of Rev. Dr. Robert 
I. Gamon. 



ARTISTS' SERIES 

The Maryville College Artists' Series has for a 
number of years been acquiring fame in this territory. 
Many of the world's great and near-great musicians have 
been brought to the chapel platform. Music lovers 
from Maryville, Knoxville, and all East Tennessee have 
come in considerable numbers. 

Professor Howell, chairman of the Artists' Series 
Committee, has often demonstrated his ability to select 
and secure artists of high quality and developing repu- 
tation just before they attain such prominence as to 
put them financially out of reach of a budget built on 
an auditorium of one thousand capacity and popular 
prices. But by combining these superior but still less 
expensive artists in series with some world renowned 
musicians like Josef Hofman and John Charles Thomas, 
it has been possible to give students and others, at small 
expense, opportunity to hear and see at the center of 
our own campus some of the best musicians. 

The student body is smaller, the travel of people 
from Knoxville and elsewhere is more unlikely, but 
an excellent series has been arranged for this year. 



THE PAST SUMMER ON THE CAMPUS 

The summer of 1943 was unlike any other in Mary- 
ville history. For the second year there was a twelve 
weeks Summer Session, with a civilian enrolment of 
110. At the same time there was the full Army Air 
Forces College Training Program which ran continuous- 
ly throughout the summer. Even with all this going 
on, the College once more rendered a large service to 
the Church by taking the annual meeting of the Synod 
of Mid-South for three days in June, and two young 
people's conferences for one week each in July. It was 
a busy summer on the campus.

DEATH OF MR. COLBERT 




Mr. Ralph R. Colbert, 
for six years a member of 
the Maryville music faculty 
before his resignation in 
1942 to accept a position 
with the Aluminum Com' 
pany of America, died on 
August 3. He had suf- 
fered a serious heart attack 
in May and had been con- 
fined to his bed and then 
to his home but was ap- 
parently making a good 
recovery. A sudden new 
attack brought his death. 



DEATHS 

Hettie Moore McCampbell, '85, died at her home, 
Valley View Road, Knoxville. The funeral service was 
held in the Fourth Presbyterian Church, Dr. John S. 
Eakin and the Rev. Robert Hamilton officiating. She 
was 81. 

William Edward Hamilton, '92, died July 2nd. _ He 
attended the 1943 Alumni Reunion, receiving a fifty- 
year certificate as a member of the Fifty-year Class. 

William Clinton McCammon, Ex. '98, died at his home 
in Knoxville on June 3rd, after closing 43 years of 
medical practice in that city. 

John Woodside Ritchie, '98, died at his home, Flem- 
ington, N. J., May 29th. After completing his under- 
graduate work at Maryville College, he did two years 
of graduate work at the University of Chicago, then 
returned to his Alma Mater as an instructor in biology, 
1899-1901. He collaborated with Leila Perine in writ- 
ing the Alma Mater, composing the lyrics, and later he 
composed the lyrics of another song, Firm, Firm She 
Stands, set to a Mendelssohn melody, which he pre- 
sented in 1936 at the time he received the L. H. D. 
degree from his Alma Mater. From 1902 to 1904 he 
taught in the normal schools of the Philippines, return- 
ing in 1905 to the professorship of biology at William 
and Mary. He resigned this position in 1919 to become 
science editor for the World Book Company which po- 
sition he held at the time of his death. He was the 
author of several books, one of which was "Biology 
and Human Affairs," copyrighted in 1941. He is 
survived by his widow, who was Sara Pearl Andrews, 
'01, four daughters and a son. 

Enoch Garfield Penland, '04, died at his home in 
Kansas City, in September, after practicing law in that 
city for 25 years. He was buried at Weaverville, N. C. 

Edith Wilson Moore, '21, died at her home in Pasa- 
dena, California. She was the daughter of a former 
pastor of the New Providence Presbyterian Church, 
Maryville, and at the time of her death, was a beloved 
school teacher. 

Herbert I. Turner, Ex. '41, First Lieutenant in the 
Army Air Corps, was killed in action in September. He 
was the pilot of a flak damaged bomber returning from 



an attack on Germany when his plane collided with an 
eastern English hill and the entire crew were instantly 
killed. He" had married Miss Lee Pramori in December, 
and had arrived in England only in July. 

F. A. Greene, Jr., Ex. '46, was killed, October 16th, 

in a taxi which collided with a train at Maxwell Field 

where he was stationed with the Air Corps. Air Corps 

Cadet Ross Honaker, Ex. '45, accompanied the body 

to Maryville for the burial service. His mother was 

Ruth Kate Quinn, '22.

THE ATLANTIC HIGHLANDERS 

Since a letter from E. Lillian Cassel, '37, constitutes 
a good report on the last Atlantic Highlanders reunion 
it is quoted here: 

"The 13th annu:d reunion and banquet of the Mary- 
ville College Atlantic Highlanders Association was held 
in Philadelphia on May 22nd. Only 27 of our mem- 
bers were present owing to war conditions, but the 
informal program was enjoyed by all who came and 
we are looking forward to next year in Washington. 

"Those participating in the program were the presi- 
dent, Lloyd Geist, Vaughn Lyons, Lou Holman, and 
George Tibbetts. Unofficially every one told his name 
and occupation and any news he might have of absent 
Maryville alumni. There was a definite Maryville 
spirit in those present and almost every one lingered for 
an hour after we left the tables. 

"Officers for the next year were elected from the 

floor and are: Bill Fahnestock, Ex. '38, President, and 

Miss Frankie Clark, '14, Vice-President. I have two 
more years as Secretary-Treasurer. 

"Dr. Vincent Shipley was present with his wife and 
reminded me several times to be sure to write you 
about the reunion. I am glad that it was possible for 
us to have it as I believe things like this are important 
and mean much to a war weary world. We are look- 
ing forward to the future and will not let this war kill 
those fine things that will make up the post-war era."

COLLEGE FINANCES 

President Lloyd recently made the following general 
report about college finances: "Our last fiscal year closed 
May 31 with some current surplus due to the fact that 
for the last three months there was some income from 
certain departments of the army program which had 
not been anticipated when the budget had been set up 
last fall. But it may require that surplus and more to 
balance the budget this year because now we have only 
half our usual income from civilian students, must expect 
a continuation of decrease in rates of income from 
invested endowment, must pay the cverrising prices, 
and the government contract, contrary to popular opin- 
ion, calls for payments conservatively figured on the 
basis of Maryville 's low student and operating costs of 
the past and on the principle that the College is neither 
to make nor lose money on the number of trainees as- 
signed. We are to need careful management and new 
gifts to avoid debt, to conserve Maryville's present sound 
financial condition, and to make the needed improve- 
ments and advances. Such management and such gifts 
we are constantly endeavoring to secure." 



men to play and teams like those of 
Notre Dame and Duke and smaller 
colleges also are made up almost 
wholly of Navy men who have play- 
ed at various institutions. Maryville 
has an Army Air Forces unit and its 
men are not allowed to play. Hence 
there is no football at Maryville. 

Unless different orders are issued 
by the Army Air Forces there will 
not be any intercollegiate athletics at 
Maryville for the duration. If 

the army men are permitted to play 
basketball or other sports there may 
be some kind of a schedule. But 
there are no plans as yet. 

It will be of interest to alumni to know, however, 
that there are a number of football games being played 
on the college field. Permission has been given to 
the Everett High School to play its home games at the 
College, its own field having been made unavailable by 
a new building program. College students and soldiers 
are admitted free and attend in considerable numbers. 




INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS 

Practically the only colleges playing football this 
year are those with Navy training units. There are 
few civilian boys in any college. The Navy permits its 



CHRISTMAS VACATION 

Again to avoid Christmas rush traffic, the Christmas 
vacation will begin December 16 and end January 12. 
The Army Training Detachment will continue with 
only Christmas Day off. 



THE ARMY PICTURES 

The picture of men in formation was taken a few weeks ago as the 42nd Army Air Forces College Training

MISS HENRY AND DR. HUNTER 
ON TWENTY-FIVE YEAR HONOR ROLL 

Miss Clemmie 
J. Henry, Direc- 
tor of Student- 
Help and Admin- 
istrative Secre- 
tary, began her 
service at the 
College in June 
1918. After at- 
tending the 
Maryville Poly- 
technic School 
and Maryville 
College, she 
served at the 
Polyt echnic 
School as a 
teacher, was em- 
ployed by an insurance firm, and later was office man- 
ager and secretary for a manufacturing company. She 
brought the values of these experiences to her work at 
Maryville College in 1918. As director of the student- 
help program, counsellor to individual students, and 
representative of the College in the field, she has done 
much both to organise and to develop a program which 
has become widely known. She often speaks to 
women's organisations and church groups in the East 
and elsewhere, presents Maryville's needs to individuals 
and carries on an extensive correspondence. Alumni 
will be interested to know that she has been instru- 
mental in securing approximately a half million dollars 
in gifts for the College during the past twenty-five 
years. Yet her chief interest is in the individual 
students with whom she counsels and whose plans she 
helps to make. Miss Henry was elected a member of 
the Board of Directors of Maryville College in 1938. 



Dr. Edwin R. 
Hunter, Professor 
of English, 
Chairman of the 
Division of Lan- 
guages and Litera- 
ture, and Dean 
of Curriculum, 
began his service 
as a Professor at 
the College in 
September 1918. 
M He graduated at

-.'fs B^^B 1914 ' an d taught 

^fl ^k^W ■ one year at 

At B Evansville Junior 

College (Wise.) 
and one year at East St. Louis High School, served one 
year as lay minister of a church, and received his M.A. 
degree at the University of Chicago during the four 
years between graduation and his return to the Mary- 
ville faculty. He was a Fellow in General Literature 




at the University of Chicago in the year 1924-1925, 
receiving the Ph.D. degree in 1925. In addition to 
his service as Professor for twenty-five years, Dr. 
Hunter was Director of Debate from 1918 to 1927, 
Secretary of the Faculty from 1921 to 1931, and has 
been Dean since 1931. During the three months be- 
tween Dr. Wilson's leaving and Dr. Lloyd's coming 
he served as Chairman of the Faculty. Not only has 
his service on the campus been constant and effective, 
but he is well known also in general educational circles 
as a teacher, writer, lecturer, and administrator.

"MISS MOLLIE" EIGHTY 

Miss Mary E. (Miss Mollie) Caldwell celebrated her 
eightieth birthday on September 11. She really had 
a good deal of help in the celebration — many callers, 
cards, letters, and flowers arrived at her home on Miller 
Street that day. Her friends had quietly reminded one 
another that "Miss Mollie will be eighty." 

As alumni know, she retired from active service in 
1936 after thirty-seven years of service on the Mary- 
ville College faculty and staff, most of that time as 
Head of Baldwin or Pearsons Hall and Dean of 
Women. She is in better health than she was a year 
ago and occasionally visits the campus or attends func- 
tions at the College.

NOTABLE EXTENSION AT COLLEGE KITCHEN 

During the summer and early fall the College has 
made some important and extensive improvements at 
the kitchen and dining hall. In addition to several 
items of new equipment made possible by the army 
contract, the College has added a dishwashing room, 
a salad and dessert room, a meat refrigeration room, a 
vegetable refrigeration room, a large porch extension, 
a dressing and recreation room for the cooks, a sup- 
plementary office, a new dishwashing machine, and a 
concrete-floored, screened enclosure for garbage cans 
and waste material. The cost will total between $8,000 
and $10,000. It is not paid for by the Government but 
by funds 'given by friends of Maryville College.

CLASS OF 1943— (Continued from page 9) 

William Sweeney is at Maxwell Field, Alabama. 

Marguerite Taylor is in training in the Naval Re- 
serves at Northampton, Mass. 

Lauramae Weber is employed as a research librarian 
at the Goodrich Rubber Co. plant in Akron, Ohio. 

Mary Virginia Williams is taking dietetics training in 
St. Luke's Hospital, Cleveland, Ohio. 

Ruth Wynn is in training with the Naval Reserves

THE ALUMNI LIVING ENDOWMENT FUND 
WE LACK ONLY £836.00 OF OUR GOAL! 

In presenting the Alumni Living Endowment Fund to 
the Association as a whole this year we suggested a 
goal of $2,000 to be contributed during the calendar 
year of 1943. We have only $836.00 more to raise 
between now and December 31. A check-up, October 
22, reveals that we have contributed through the 
Fund program $1,164.00. 

We had hoped to have a detailed account of the 
Fund with a list of contributors ready for this issue 
of the Magazine, but a shortage of help has made that 
impossible at this time. However it is stimulating to 
reveal that these gifts ranged from $1.00 to $100.00 
and that they were sent by doctors, lawyers, nurses, 
students, housewives, business men, school teachers, 
missionaries, men in the Army and Navy, and many 
other sundry occupations from the homeland and from 
foreign fields of labor. In this $1,164.00 is much of 
the. kind of stuff of which Maryville College is made. 

Totals for the three years are as follows: 1941, 
$30.00; 1942, $333.30; 1943, $1,164.00, all years totaling 
$1,527.30. While we want to reach our goal if possible, 
what we have done is no mean achievement: $1,164.00 
is 4% of $29,100.00. 

Much of the $1,164.00 was contributed in War 
Savings Bonds which are not available to the College 
to be used until they mature, and actually will not be- 
come a part of the Living Endowment Fund until that 
time. They are being kept in a separate special ac' 
count in the Treasurer's Office to the credit of the 
alumni, as contributors, by classes. For the time being 
we are not separating the bonds from other gifts in 
reports to the alumni. 

Remember that gifts to your Alma Mater are not 

"inflationary" and are fully in harmony with the best 

economic interest of the Nation as well as that of the 

College.

Here and There 

1898 

William Francis Phillips. Ex. '9S. The Huntington (Cal.) Park 
SlKnal recently carried a picture of "Bill Phillips" under the heading 
.BILL PHILLIPS. AT 74, STARTS NEW LIFE AS MERCHANT 
MARINE." "At 74. most men would consider their lives finished. 
But not Bill Phillips who is shipping out soon on his first voyage as 
a merchant marine. 

"Phillips, who tried twice to see action as a soldier or sailor and 
was rejected because of his age, boarded ship last Friday (May 28) as 
a steward in the officers' quarters of the Josiah N. Cushing, new 
victory ship from the Calship yards. 

"Phillips, who will celebrate his 74th birthday next month (June), 
is not a stranger to war. During the Spanish-American conflict he 
spent 25 months overseas under General Fitzhugh Lee, and saw action 
in several battles. His stories of the fighting in Cuba are hair-raisers. 
In 1923. Phillips moved to Huntington Park and spent ten years 
in the city hall as water superintendent and in charge of the city 
pumps. During that time he made friends here and was active in 
lodge and civic affairs."

John E. Tracey was the subject of a recent article in the Miehican 
Alumnus, which also carried his picture, under the title: LURED TO 
TEACHING AFTER SUCCESSFUL LAW PRACTICE. After re-

the Honorary LL.D. degree twenty years later by Maryville College, 
the article states. "Professor Tracy started his law practice at Mar- 
quette. Michigan, before moving to New York as a corporation lawyer 
and finally on to Chicago. 111. It was while he was there that the 
University Law School brought him to the campus in the winter of 
1929-30 as a special lecturer on Corporation practice. His work was 
so successful he was asked to join the law faculty, which he did in 
the fall of 1930.

Associations and was Alderman in the Ann Arbour Common Council

reviews and journals and is the author of four law text and reference 
^fc. CORp ORATE FORECLOSURES.' 'CORPORATION PRACTICE ' 
•HINTS ON ENTERING THE PRACTICE OF LAW ■ and 'CASES

IRWIN BROTHERS ON HONOR ROLL 
Ralph W. Irwin, Night Watchman has been at Mary- 

ville College since October 
1, 1917, a service of 26 
years. He worked on the 
campus and in the heating 
plant for three years and 
has been Night Watchman 
for 23 years. Except for 
short vacations and periods 
of illness he has come on 
duty early each evening 
during that long period 
The hours of his work 
are such that some of the 
other members of the staff 
seldom see him. He is a 
civil deputy officer, and his presence on the campus 
and his visits to the buildings during the hours of 
the nights give valuable protection against fire and 
lawlessness. 

James I. Irwin began his service as Farmer at the 

College in 1918, and is 
therefore one of those 
celebrating a twenty-fifth 
anniversary this year. Dur- 
ing this quarter of a cen- 
tury he has seen some 
prominent changes and 
improvements in the Col- 
lege's dairy facilities. The 
small barn used for all 
purposes when he came 
disappeared in favor of 
the "Lamar barn," which 
in turn was abandoned in 
favor of the "Brown barn" 
at the east side of the campus. The Brown barn has 
now been trebled in size, a large silo added, a modern 
milking barn and an up-to-date refrigeration unit built, 
and the dairy herd improved. Jim lives in the ad- 
joining house and manages the dairy, the other stock, 
and the hundred acres of campus and the more exten- 
sive nearby land under cultivation.

BENEFIT LUNCHEON 

The Benefit Luncheon and Apron Sale held die 
last two years to raise funds for the improvement of 
the women's dormitories has been cancelled for this 
year. It would be difficult not only to obtain food 
but also next to impossible to serve a luncheon at 
Pearsons this year because of the heavy schedule of 
soldier and civilian meals. It is expected that this 
event will be resumed when conditions allow.

FOREIGN MISSIONARIES 

In Maryville's "Foreign Legion," as the band of 
Foreign missionaries who have gone out from the 
College since 1873 are called by Dr. Wilson in his 
compendium written in 1934, there are now 142 per- 
sons. Of these, 27 have died, 58 have retired or 
withdrawn from missionary work, and 58 are on the 
field or at home on regular or forced war furlough. 

Many of the Maryville Foreign Legion who were in 
Japan and Japanese occupied countries have been sub' 
jected to confinement in concentration camps or to 
other military restraint. Some have been exchanged 
for Japanese nationals and sent home by the Govern- 
ment. From some no word at all has come. Recently 
word was received by the Presbyterian Board of 
Foreign Missions that the wife of Rev. Dr. Charles N. 
Magill, '99, had died in the Philippines. Dr. and Mrs. 
Magill have been missionaries to the Philippines since 
1905. His three sisters, Mrs. J. E. Johnson, Mrs. 
Robert C. Jones, and Mrs. Joe Mcllvaine, now live 
in Maryville. There has been no word concerning 
him. 

Three members of the Foreign Legion have returned 
to their work in war areas in the past year. They 
are Fred H. Hope, '06, to West Africa, Lois C. Wilson, 
'16, to Syria, and Dr. Dorothy L. Ferris, '28, to India. 
Word of the safe arrival of Fred Hope has been re- 
ceived; no word of the arrival of the other two has yet 
come. 




DR. ANDERSON 

THE FEBRUARY MEETINGS OF 1944 

The 68th series of February Meetings will be held 
February 2-10, 1944. The student body is smaller this 
year and the war program is different, but Maryville 
College believes that the purposes of the February Meet- 
ings are fundamental in wartime as in peacetime. The 
preacher for the Meetings this year will be the Rev. Dr. 
Harrison Ray Anderson, Pastor of the Fourth Presby- 
terian Church of Chicago. This is the second year in 
which Dr. Anderson has rendered this service, the 
other year being 1939. He is making a significant 
sacrifice to come, taking two weeks from his heavy and 
important work as pastor of one of America's greatest 
churches. He comes because he believes in Maryville 
and in the February Meetings. Once more the song 
leader will be the Rev. Dr. Sidney E. Stringham, Pastor 
of the Shaw Avenue Methodist Church, St. Louis. 
This will be Dr. Stringham's 22nd series.

SERVICE FLAG 

The picture on the back cover is that of the first 
Maryville College Service Flag of World War II. 
There were 400 stars on the flag when the picture was 
taken. The number to be added grows daily as reports 
are received in the Alumni Office. Already the total 
number of Maryville graduates, former students, faculty, 
and former faculty known by the College to be in the 
armed forces is over 700. This flag is being filled and 
a second flag is being secured. They will hang for 
the present in the Chapel. 

There are two gold stars on the flag now and a 
third to be added. One is for Chaplain (Colonel) 
Frank L. Miller, "14, killed in an airplane crash in Ice- 
land. One is for Ensign Weldon A. Baird, '39, a 
pilot in the Navy, killed when his plane went down in 
the Pacific. The one to be added is for 1st Lieut. 
Herbert I. Turner, Jr., ex-Mi, of the Army Air Forces, 
killed in action over England. 

The Class of 1943 gave the flag shown in the picture 
and stars for its members in service. The Alumni As- 
sociation is placing all other stars and supplying the 
second flag.
