Dear Fellow Alumni: 

The last issue of the Alumni Magazine carried a report of the fact 
that I expected to be in China during the Fall Semester on a deputation 
visit for the Presbyterian Board of Foreign Missions. I arrived in 
Shanghai on August 31 and am now engaged in a survey of missions, 
churches, schools^ universities, hospitals, and other enterprises which the 
Presbyterian Chui'ch supports. Our report will carry recommendations 
as to policies, personnel, and budget as the program is rebuilt in this 
vast country. There are five of us, only two of whom are here as yet. 
Our return home will probably be late in December. Dr. Lloyd S. 
Ruland, a Secretary of the Foreign Board, and I came to China by air- 
plane. I flew from Maryville to New York on August 21, with in- 
structions to be ready to fly next day to London, India, and China, but 
plans were changed and August 23 I flew from New York to San 
Francisco. On August 25, we left On a U. S. Navy plane for Pearl 
Harbor, Guam, Okinawa, and Shanghai. Actual flying time over the 
Pacific was 43 hours, but in addition we spent a night at Honolulu and a night at Guam. Traveling under high 
priorities from the Department of State we had no difficulties. We are to visit the principal centers of China 
except those in Communist power and some in the far west, traveling chiefly by air. 

At the College 
This mission took me away from Maryville almost a week before college opened and as I write this I have 
had no word since we left San Francisco two days before students reported. There were still a number of 
faculty and staff adjustments to be made and the problem of housing students was a tough one. We turned 
away large numbers. I expect to hear that after students had found some rooms in town and town residents of 
the community had registered, our total would not be fa r under the pre-war figures, even though we had used 
some space in Carnegie for married veterans. Dean McClelland is serving as Administrative Chairman and Dean 
Hunter as Faculty Chairman during my absence. Judge S. O. Houston, Chairman of the Directors, Judge A. E. 
Mitchell, Chairman of the Committee on Finance, and Judge J. C. Crawford, Recorder and Acting Treasurer, 
also are carrying extra duties. 

Faculty and Staff 
We are glad to welcome back a number of our people who have been away and to introduce an unusually 
large group of new members of the faculty and staff. Their names appear elsewhere in this issue. We have 
made good progress in rebuilding. 

New Majors 
Not only are we re-establishing our major in Art, but are inaugurating new majors in School Music, Business 
Administration, and Physical Education. Alumni will be interested also in the fact that after four years' omis- 
sion, a full schedule of intercollegiate athletics will be conducted. 

New Curricolum 

The faculty are now shaping up the details of the proposed new curriculum and we hope to have them 
ready for specific announcement before the year is over, although other readjustments and my present absence 
may slow down its completion somewhat. 

Class Reunions at Commencement 

I hope that travel and other conditions next May will make possible a renewal of alumni visits and of a 
regular schedule of alumni class reunions. The fifty-year class reunion is the only one which has been kept up 
through the War. The Alumni Office will be announcing the list of 1947 reunions. Alumni Day will be Tues- 
day, May 20. 

Cordially yours.

®{f^ Alumni Pr^siJi^ut s Ul^ssag^ 

Fellow Alumni: 

Anotlier year rolls by and again our annual Homecoming Day ap- 
proaches. The date is November 2. The war is over. The boys are 
back. The college halls are crowded witli students. Morale is high. 
Prospects are excellent. Let us gatlrer in great numbers to join in happy 
recollections, and in enthusiastic expectations. 

As you know, President Lloyd will not be here to greet us, for he is 
far away in China on a special mission for our Presbyterian Board of 
Foreign Missions. Dean Hunter and Dean McClelland, who are in charge 
in his absence, and the Alumni members on the faculty will make us 
cordially welcome. Professor Griffitts and his group of helpers will serve 
as official hosts and hostesses. Carl Storey and his committee are in 
charge of the barbecue. "Nuff sed." The football game with Middle 
Tennessee State College ( Murfreesboro ) will be a fitting close for the day. 

Of course we do not wish to confine ourselves to semi-annual bmsts 
of entlrusiasm on Homecoming Day and at Commencement. As loyal 
Alumni we wiU not forget to send in our annual dues ( $2 ) to our Execu- 
tive Secretary, Rev. James R. Smith, '35, and will keep him notified of our 
whereabouts. If we can give him any items of news regarding ourselves 
or other Maryville folks, it will enable him to fill those columns of Alumni 
news in the Alumni Magazine that we all enjoy so much. 

The Wilson Fund is still open. Here is a chance to help our Alma 
Mater and at the same time to contribute to a memorial to Dr. Samuel T. 
Wilson, our loved Professor for many years, and dien one of the greatest 
Presidents any college ever had. 

The Living Endowment is a system in common use among colleges 
now, whereby annual conbibutions can easily provide tlie income that 
would be secured from large capital gifts. Maryville has such a system. 
Ai^e you participating in it? 

We are proud of om- Ahna Mater. Let us be ready and eager to 
spread her fame and extend her influence among our friends and as- 
sociates wherever our lot has been cast. 

Sincerely yours, 

H. J. BASSETT, '04

The fourteenth 
annual Found e r s 
Day Service will 
be held in Voor- 
hees Chapel a t 
9:45 a. m. Satur- 
day, November 2. 
The general theme 
will be'Tlie World- 
wide Mission of 
the Christian Col- 
lege. " The Rev. 
Dr. Charles T . 
Leber, of New 
York, will be the 
speaker. Dr. Leber 
has been a Secre- 
tary of tlie Presby- 
terian Board o f 
Foreign Missions 
since 1936 and in 
that capacity has visited missions in the Middle 
East, the Far East, and Africa. He is also a mem- 
ber of tlie General Council of the Presbyterian 
Church and of the executive committee of the 
Foreign Missions Conference of North America. 

Judge Houston, Chairman of the Board of Di- 
rectors, and Dean Hunter and Dean McClelland will 
also take part in the service. All alumni are cordially 
invited and urged to attend. 



There were three members of the Fifty- Year Class 
who attended the alumni dinner and the Commence- 
ment exercises in May. At graduation the Class of 
1896 numbered seven, of whom four are still hving. 
The tliree deceased members are James Allen Davis, 
James Moses Ewing, and Harvey Boyd McCall. All 
four living members planned to be present, but tlie 
development of tlie railroad strike prevented Rev. 
Frank Jonathan Milman of New Jersey from coming. 
The three who were present are Roger Sherman 
Boardman, Jonathan Houston Newman, and Samuel 
Bovd Parker. 

Each of these three spoke briefly at the alumni 
dinner and fifty-year certificates were awarded to 
them at the Commencement exercises. A similar 
certificate was sent to Mr. Milman. Mrs. Nevwnan 
and Mrs. Parker were also present. 

The following citations and presentation were read 
at the Commencement exercises by President Lloyd 
of tlie College: 

"Roger Sherman Boardman, who resides in Bloom- 
field, New Jersey, and has his business in New York 
City, graduated at Maryville College while his father 
was serving as the fourth President of the institution. 
After his graduation here he attended Harvard Uni- 
versity two years and received a second degree there. 
For the next three years he taught in Texas and Okla- 

homa. But in 1902 he entered what proved to be 
his life work- the pubhshing business. For ten 
years he was with Ginn and Company, Boston, and 
beVinne Press, New York. Since 1912 he has been 
with Charles Scribners Sons, New York publishers, 
in the general field of editorial supervision, except 
that following World War I he spent almost two 
years with tlie Red Cross in Paris. His writings in- 
clude a book containing the biography of his an- 
cester, Roger Sherman, and also ten biographical 
sketches in the Dictionary of American Biography. 
We are sorry that Mrs. Boardman is unable to be 
here today. 

"Jonathan Houston Newman of Johnson City, Ten- 
nessee, and Mrs. Houston are related to Maryville 
College in several ways. The one of which we are 
thinking today is his graduation in 1896. For eight 
years after graduation he taught in North Carolina 
and for three or four of those years was principal of 
tlie literary Department of the Asheville Farm School. 
Since that time he has been engaged in the general 
insurance business. For many years he has been 
known as a Bible student and teacher and is an 
Elder in the First Presbyterian Church in his city. 

"Samuel Boyd Parker of Knoxville, and Mrs. Parker, 
like Mr. and Mrs. Newman, were Maryville College 
students. Mr. Parker taught for ten years, was a 
YMCA secretary for eleven years, a newspaper man 
in Knoxville three years, and for the past 26 years 
has taught matliematics in Knoxville High School. 
He is to retire at the end of the current year. I 
first saw him and heard him speak and sing at Mary- 
ville College when I was a student here and he was 
a Tennessee State YMCA student secretary. I can 
remember him still for he made a definite impression 
on me. Singing has been his principal avocation and 
he was a church choir director for 26 vears. 

"To you the Class of 1896 who are here, and to 
the one who is absent, I extend in behalf of your 
Alma Mater hearty greetings, sincere congratulations, 
and earnest good wishes in celebration of this an- 
niversary. All of you are Christian men who serve 
in the Church of Christ and in the causes of Christ. 
In recognition of your contiibutions to your dav and 
generation, I place in the hands of each of vou a cer- 
tificate which is a symbol of affection and honor. Mav 
God bless you." 


Mr. Commodore Fisher of the Class of 1916, who 
served his Alma Mater during tlie college vear of 
1945-1946 as Associate Professor of Historv, after 
twenty years of service as a missionary-educator in 
Iran, finally answered the urgent call to return to 
Iran to re-establish certain of tlie educational \\'ork 
there. He and Mrs. Fisher and daughter, Pegsrs' 
sailed in July to resume their residence and work on 
the foreign mission field. 



Summer at the College was not the quiet restful 
time that some people imagine it was. Synod and 
Synodical, young people's conferences, and a music 
festival brought many people to the campus and kept 
the staff exceedingly busy. 

The Svnod, Synodical Society, and Westminster 
Fellowship Council of Mid-South met on the campus 
June 25-28. Over three hundred persons attended. 
Four voung people's conferences were held. The 
Knoxville Presbytery (Presbyterian Church, U.S.) 
conferences for senior young people and for inter- 
mediates were held simultaneously from June 17 to 
22, with 266 attending; the East Tennessee senior 
conference (Presbyterian Church, U. S. A.), June 10 
to 17, with 125 attending; and the intermediate con- 
ference (Presbyterian Church, U. S. A.), July 1 to 8, 
with 1.38 attending. 

From August 12 to 23 Mr. Guy Maier held a music 
festival and workshop on the campus. About 240 
musicians attended, most of them teachers, from a 
wide area including Canada and States as far away as 
New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Indiana, and New 
York. Mr. Maier is a very fine piano teacher who 
holds seminars each summer in various parts of the 
counhy. This summer his seminars were at Mac- 
Phail College of Music, Minneapolis, Sherwood 
Music School, Chicago, Juilliard School of Music, 
New York, and Maryville College. Mr. Maier con- 
ducted classes in piano pedagogy and he and his 
staff gave private lessons to those desiiing them. 
Each evening there was a concert in the Chapel. 

On May 31, the College gave a luncheon in honor 
of Mrs. Juhus Young Talmadge, of Georgia, President 
General of the D.A.R., Mrs. C. Edward Mmray, of 
New Jersey, 'Vice-President General, and Mrs. 'Van- 
Court Carwithen, of Pennsylvania, National Chair- 
man of Approved Schools. The local D.A.R. chapter 
was invited to be co-hostess with the College. 


The following four new Directors of Maryville Col- 
lege were elected in June by the Presbyterian Synod 
of Mid-South to fill vacancies on the Board. 

Rev. Harrison Ray Anderson, D.D., LL.D., Litt.D., 
Pastor of the Fourth Presbyterian Church, Chicago, 
Illinois, one of the great churches of America. Dr. 
Anderson has led the February Meetings on tvvo oc- 
casions, in 1939 and 1944. 

Rev. Chester Fred Leonard, B.A. (Maryville, 17), 
B.D., whose post office is Sneedville, Tennessee, not 
far from the northeast corner of the State, and whose 
work is at "Vardy, some miles away, where he and 
Mrs. Leonard (Josephine Wicks of the Class of 1920) 
for many years have rendered an outstanding church, 
school, and community service under the Presbyterian 
Board of National Missions. 

Mr. Hugh Rankin Crawford, B.A. (Maryville, '03), 
well known hardware merchant and churchman of 

Mr. James L. Getaz, B.S., formerly of Maryville, 



At the 19 4 6

to the College he was a pastor in Detroit and Water- 
loo, Iowa. He is regarded as one of the most con- 
structive leaders in the field of Christian education. 

The degree of Doctor of Divinity was conferred 
upon the Rev. Sam H. Frankhn, Jr., of the Class of 
1924, now Acting Secretary of the Board of Foreign 
Missions in the Chicago office. His home was in 
Maryville and his father and mother still five across 
tlie street from the campus. After graduation from 
college he attended McCormick Theological Semin- 
ary, recei\ing tlie Bachelor of Divinity degree there 
in 1928. Later he received the Master of Sacred 
Theologv degree from Union Theological Seminary, 
New York, and spent one year at the University of 
Edinburgh. For five years he was a missionary to 
Japan, where among his friends was tlie famous 
Japanese Christian Kagawa. Then he was associated 
with Dr. Sherwood Eddy in a number of his pil- 
grimages to Europe, and after that became manager 
of the Delta Co- 
operative Farms in 
Mississ i p p i , in 
whose establish- 
ment Dr. Eddy

The Ai-tists Series again will present three concerts 
of unusual attraction and high quaUty. The first

on January 15, and a considerable number of ap- 
plications have already been received for the fall 
semester of 1947. 


John Samuel Eakin, '87, died May 9, 1946, in Knoxville. At 
the tinne of his death he was the senior member of the

Rev. Calvin A. Duncan was on the Board for 58 years. Dr. 
Eakin attended Lane Theological Seminary after graduation 
from Maryville, and received the honorary D.D. degree 
from Maryville in 1918. He was a member of the famous 
Maryville College General Assembly Quartet composed of 
Eakin, Creswell, Goff, and Newman. He retired from the 
Fourth Presbyterian Church, Knoxville, in 1937, after a 
Pastorate of twenty years.

her home in Knoxville, April 19, where she had reared her 
family. Her ties with Maryville College have continued 
since her graduation; two daughters, Mrs. Samuel Blizzard,

(Dorothy Louise Barber, '42), are graduates and Mary Ruth

Several of you have written the Alumni Office for 
information on Ufe membersliips. Since others of 
you have doubtless had similar questions in your 
minds about it, it seems wise to give the information 
in the Magazine where all can have it. 

We have made a survey of what the associations 
in many of the colleges and universities are doiirg. 
This article is something of a summary of what this 
survey revealed plus the attitude taken by the Execu- 
tive Committee in session on September 16th at the 

Those institutions that put in a form of life mem- 
bership have discontinued it. They report that the 
life membership became impractical especially for 
the tliiee following reasons: (1) it required account- 
ing that was too costly since reserve funds had to be 
set up from which to draw from year to year to pre- 
vent exhausting the capital income before there was 
any source of replacement; (2) it was based upon 
the earning power of such a reserve fund invested at 
interest— the investment possibilities have been so 
greatly curtailed and the income from investment so 
small that this practice has had to be eliminated; (3) 
it rather unexpectedly resulted in ahenating the life 
members from the institution, for when the dues were 
paid for hfe the institution was dismissed from the 
mind and a gradual and subtle esti-angement set in. 

With this material before them the Executive Com- 
mittee voted to pass over tlie matter of Ufe member- 
ships until a fm-ther study could be made. The feel- 
ing was that it was not a wise procedure under exist- 
ing circumstance. Especially did they feel this to be 
true under our circumstance, for, if the large univer- 
sities with the staffs that they have find the labor too 
much, then we who are exti-emely hmited in office 
and clerical help had better be careful of it. 

But we should not leave the picture witliout tak- 
ing a look at what these institutions are doing. Many 
of them, probably most of them, have discontinued 
alumni dues altogether. Instead of alumni dues they 
have substituted the alumni living endowment fund; 

some of them call it simply tire alumni fund. The 
general principle is the same with tlrem all. They 
ask tlieir alumni to give each year (and this apphes 
to the big state universities as well as the smallei 
colleges) to this alumni fund; the minimum so far 
as we have been able to establish it is $10.00. 

Some associations are run on theii- own income. 
Many ha\'e to have supplementary income from their 
institutions. The institutions charge such supple- 
mentary funds to pubhc relations and promotion. In 
the state universities the association is either self 
supporting or the support comes from legislative 
appropriations. Maryville, like many other similar 
colleges, has no state appropriation to call upon. 
We have had $2.00 alumni dues as a purely vol- 
untary participation. Out of 3000 graduates less than 
seven hundred pay dues. As we close the year's books 
it looks now as if our membersliip will not do as 
well this year as last. The Magazine goes to every 
one regardless of whether dues are paid or not. The 
cost of that Magazine has steadily risen; it has been 
expanded some also. 

Our living endowment fund has done very well. 
We are looking forward to the day when we can 
have enough help to make a complete and accurate 
report of all who are participating in that fund. It is 
open to the whole Association, and a larger partici- 
pation of the membership would be encouraging. 

We should like to hear from you. Do you feel 
that to do away with all alumni dues and to substi- 
tute an alumni fund to which annual payments of no 
stipulated amount can be made would increase our 
income? If we did this, should we continue the living 
endowment fund for gifts to the College, or should 
gifts to the College come from the excess alumni 
fund? Let us have your thought on this matter.
