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-

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.
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.
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
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.

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
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
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.
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-
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
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

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
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.
Eileen Farrell, dramatic soprano, November 6.

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.
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.

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

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."

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.
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
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
Detachment was at Retreat in front of Anderson Hall. The picture of the Anderson tower and the flag was
taken just before Retreat on the same day and includes the two soldiers detailed to take down the flag. The
Army Detachment has been given charge of the flag on the Anderson tower and raises it each morning and takes
it down at the ceremony each night.

MISS HENRY AND DR. HUNTER
ON TWENTY-FIVE YEAR HONOR ROLL
J. Henry, Direc-
tor of Student-
Help and Admin-
tary, began her
service at the
College in June
1918. After at-
served at the
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.
Chairman of the
Division of Lan-
guages and Litera-
ture, and Dean

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.

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

Here and There
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-
viewing his record through graduation from Maryville College and
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.
"Mr. Tracy is a member of the American and Michigan State Bar
Associations and was Alderman in the Ann Arbour Common Council
1938-1940. During World War I he served as assistant director of
the bureau of Exports of the War Trade Board, in which position
his corporation experience was valuable.
"Mr. Tracy is a literary contributor to several professional law
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

Mr. Tracy married Margaret Elliott, a graduate of Wellesley Col-
S" re .'" 1914 - and Radcliffe College with the Ph.D. degree in 1924
bhe is Professor of Economics at the University.
"Contact with youth and the fascination of watching students de-
velop in the business world have combined to keep Professor Tracy
away from law practice for the past 12 years."

assumed the directorship of clinical teaching. Following his gradua-
tion from Rush Medical College with the M.D. degree, he served as

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
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.

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.

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
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
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.

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
