In a way of tribute for your two years of service to Athens 
College, the staff of the 1961 COLUMNS dedicates this annual 
to you, Dr. Virgil B. McCain, Jr., president of Athens College. 

We, the students of Athens College think you are a man 
of many talents and responsibilities each of which you fulfill 
in the highest, most admirable manner: a Christian gentleman, 
a scholar, and most of all a true friend. Your courage and 
vision have stood and will stand as a guiding force to our 
college. 

For your whole-hearted support and sincere personal in- 
terest in the student body, we wish to express our thanks by 
dedicating this, the 1961 COLUMNS to you, Dr. Virgil B. 
McCain, Jr.

Dear Students: 

I want to express to you my personal appreciation for the many fine 
things all of you are doing to help Athens become a better college. Your 
enthusiasm and friendliness create a joyful atmosphere in which to live and 
work. You are tops in my long list of young friends with whom I have been 
associated over the years. 

Athens College is "on the move." Of the following, we are especially 
proud : 

1. Our enrollment this year (491) is the highest on record. 

2. Standards at Athens College have been made higher than Southern 
Association requirements in admissions, graduation, faculty, salaries, faculty 
degrees, and general administration. High standards mean a better education. 

3. The first college level program in the State of Alabama for training 
Electronic and Instrument Technicians began here in September I960. 

4. Money has been provided for a new girl's dormitory to be opened 
in September 1961. This will enable us to take 50 more students on campus 
next year. 

5. Special gifts ($60,000) from friends of the college have enabled 
us to fully complete the furnishings of Waters Science Hall — now one of 
the best equipped science buildings in our state. 

You and our fine faculty have made these accomplishments possible. 
For this I shall be forever grateful. 

Sincerely, 
Virgil McCain 
Presidetit

JOHN CARTER, PRESIDENT 



To Dr. McCain, Dr. Bathurst, Dean Edwards, the faculty, and staff, I wish to express my deep appre- 
ciation and earnest thanks for your support in helping me make this the best year in our history. 

To my Cabinet, who has faithfully sup{x>rted my endeavors, I wish to express my gratitude. 

To all students of Athens College, thank you for your cooperation. 

The Student Government Asstxiation of Ath ens College set as itself a goal when it first came 
into being. The goal: to create a friendly and hospitable atmosphere within the college, to provide an 
opportunity for social and recreational activity, to sponsor worthwhile projects, to hold high the 
torch of sch(x>l spirit and to carry it down through the years. 

The S.G.A. has always held a grc^t responsibility in representing the student body. But the Cabinet 
alone would fail without the full support and interest of all students. What we have accomplished 
we have not done alone; leaders and followers together have met the goal. 

It is my hope and my Cabinet's sincere hope that we, the S.G.A., have succeeded in fulfilling 
your wishes and suggestions for improvement on our campus. 

Again, thank you — and may you retain happy recollections of our year together at Athens College.

METHODIST STUDENT 
MOVEMENT 



The purpose of MSM on the Athens College 
Campus is to serve as a channel in helping each student 
relate his religious life to his collegiate life. In MSM, 
we try to gain experiences that will deepen our 
Christian faith and provide a stimulating Christian 
fellowship. 

The initials MSM stand not only for the Methodist 
Student Movement in itself, but for Christ's work on 
campus. While the accent is on Christian fellowship, 
primarily MSM also serves in a service capacity 
on campus and elsewhere. Membership is open to any- 
one who is interested in this movement of Christian 
concern.

ATHENS COLLEGE 
SINGERS 



The Athens College Singers have several purposes, and all of 
these purposes contribute to the ultimate preparation of each of the 
Singers for post-graduate professions as teachers of music in the 
Public Schools, as Choral Conductors, as Church Music Directors, or 
as people who would have music merely as a hobby or avocation 
rather than as a vocation. The Choral Department hopes to increase 
its singers' repertoire of great choral works of both the past and the 
present. It also strives to perform as a service organization .... a 
public relations unit, carrying the name and standards of Athens 
College over an area as far and as wide as possible. 

The projects of the Athens College Singers are varied, depending 
largely on the entertainment needs of the public. More specifically, 
the Choral Department plans to present a Spring Musical and to 
represent Athens College at the Choral Contest for Colleges held in 
Birmingham during the latter part of the academic year.

It all starts with picture taking appointments, 
scheduling group pictures, the instant flash of a 
camera at unexpected times and in unexpected 
places. 

Next comes the sound of voices, the peck-peck- 
peck of the typewriter. 

Then the race at break neck speed to meet the 
deadline. 

Finally the finished product — the 1961 Col- 
umns, a pictured remembrance of our year at Athens 
College!

THE COLUMNS BEAUTY REVIEW 



The six beauties and six favorites 
featured on the following pages of 
the 1961 Columns are co-eds of 
Athens College, chosen from twenty- 
one candidates representing the 
various organizations on the College 
campus. They were chosen on the 
basis of their beauty, poise, person- 
ality, and general appearance. 

The Columns Beauty Review was 
held December 3, and followed by 
the annual beauty ball. The candi- 



dates were presented in a leadout 
with their escorts, and were then 
seen individually, in groups of five, 
ten, and then in the group as a 
whole. The judges announced their 
selections after a short deliberation, 
and the first dance following the de- 
cision was for the beauties, favorites, 
and their escorts. Then the dance 
proper began, with music provided 
by the Billy-Bob Combo.

COACH ALFORD 

In his years at Athens College, 
Coach Frank Alford has touched 
many lives. We shall cherish his 
ideal of friendship and service. As 
he leaves our campus, he goes to 
a larger field of service . . . the 
mission field. We wish for him 
and his family "Godspeed and every 
blessing."

THANK YOU . . . . 



It's been a pleasure escorting you through "OUR COLLEGE" and a year 
of its activities. I hope you've enjoyed hearing these memories as much as the 
staff and I have enjoyed telUng them. 

Now, we can stop worrying about the deadHnes that we could never quite 
seem to make; we can stop hoping to get that unending mass of copy written 
on time; we can stop bursting with desire to divulge our best-loved secret. 

The time has come when we must part, and to add a fervent "thank you." 
Thank you Miss Nazaretian — more than words can say — for working with 
us all the way, to all the faculty and staff for their contributions, to Mr. Ewing 
and the Public Relations Department, to Dan Glenn of Florence who did an 
excellent job with the photography, to Dr. Bathurst who co-operated so will- 
ingly, to Dr. McCain for the fine leadership he provides as president of Athens 
College. 

I hope that in preparing this edition of the COLUMNS, all the many 
sides of education have been included, and the fragments presented you may 
recall the excitement of your college career and the instances which profited 
your developing maturity. 

Thank you, all — • you who lived and loved this year with us. Thank you 
for giving me the pleasure and privilege of being your Editor. 

Thank you for making possible this pictorial reminder of college life. 
I entrust from my heart to your hands, this your annual, the 1961 COLUMNS.
