One of the most important and
crucial epics in Oglethorpe's exciting
history has begun. We have embarked
on the greatest expansion and improve-
ment program we have ever had.
The tremendous physical enlarge-
ment in store for Oglethorpe Universi-
ty during the next decade is only a
part of Ihe picture. We are steadily
improving the appearance of the pres-
ent buildings and grounds through in-
tensive effort. The faculty are critical-
ly analyzing our curriculum, modifying
it when needed, culling outmoded
courses and adding new ones to keep
the Oglethorpe Plan always abreast of
the times. Dr. Agnew is studying every
phase of our operations in order that
Oglethorpe will continue to be one of
the finest educational institutions in
The call by the NAAOU for your
financial suport, via the Forward
Oglethorpe fund, is unique for us, but
not for our sister institutions. Many
of them have depended on alumni an-
nual giving for more than half a cen-
tury. The request for aid which you
have received recently is not a plea,
but a challenge.
The United States is in desperate
need today for adequately trained peo-
ple who can advance science, cope
with diplomatic and economic prob-
lems and deal expertly with all aspects
of human endeavor. This need will
continue indefinitely. The people who
will solve this situation will come from
colleges and universities like Ogle-

ber of the university and at the time
of his death held the title professor

years ago, he was head of the
School of Education and dean of

most eminent educators have been able
to do in a quarter of a century. It
shocked people into the realization
that education is important for their
protection. They have also realized
that it vitally touches every facet of
our way of life and is the greatest
single factor governing our high
standard of living. It makes sense to
support education, because one way
or another, education supports us.
There are many avenues you may
follow to help, but which one is more
natural than that leading to your
real academic beginning — your alma

very existence is being threatened.

A fascinating talk concerning
"Africa Today" was given at Ogle-
thorpe University on Sunday, April 12,
by Dr. Gwendolen M. Carter, pro-
fessor of government at Smith College.
Dr. Carter, a former instructor of
Dr. Cressy, stated there were three
primary factors causing the great ad-
vancement in contemporary Africa.
First, a wide segment of the population
is getting a broader and more ad-
vanced education than has been pre-
valent in the past. Second, industriali-
zation has been taking place at an
ever increasing rate. Third, the people
are aware of the independence move-
ments that have occurred in southeast
Asia and this spirit is contagious.
Referring to the various territories
in Africa. Miss Carter said. "What-
ever advances are made in one terri-
tory has an impact on the others."
Generally speaking, she said, "Their
intention is to move to greater control
over their own future."
Dr. Carter's field of specialization
is the British Commonwealth of Na-
tions, with particular emphasis on the
Union of South Africa. Her latest work
on the "Politics of Inequality: South
Africa Since 1948" has just been pub-
lished by Frederick A. Praeger.
Miss Carter has also visited and
studied the political situations in
Southern Rhodesia, the Belgian Congo,
the Gold Coast, Australia, New Zea-
land, India, Pakistan and Ceylon.
She is the author of "The British
Commonwealth and International Se-
curity" and of numerous articles on
South Africa and the Commonwealth.
She is co-author of "The Major
Foreign Powers", a leading textbook
in the field of comparative government.
Miss Carter is a member of Phi
Beta Kappa, the American and Ca-
nadian Political Science Assns., and
the American Assn. of University
Women. She served a two-year term
on the Council of the American Politi-
cal Science Assn. and is currently vice
president of the African Studies Assn.

The Flying Petrel
Petrels Post 2nd Best Cage
Record in 0. U. History
by BOB OLIVER '57
A successful chapter in Oglethorpe
basketball history was written during
the 1957-58 season on the North At-
lanta campus as the Stormy Petrels
posted an impressive record of 18 vic-
tories in 24 outings.
The 18-6 reading is second only to
the fine 22-5 mark chalked up by the
1948 team, the latter being the best
in the school's cage history.
The "road back" for Oglethorpe
athletics has been much shorter than
many expected when Garland Pin-
holster was hired as athletic director
at the beginning of the 1956-57 school
year. In" his first year Pinholster
guided his charges to an 8-12 record.
As his second year at the basketball
helm came to an end Pinholster com-
mented: "We're very proud of the boys
and our record this year; the spirit on
the team, and among the student body,
Personnelwise, there were but two
major additions to this season's club
over the team that posted the 8-12
slate a year ago. Coach Pinholster
accredits most of the improvement to
"more experience with the offense and
better spirit and greater effort."
However, the two additions cannot
be overlooked. Freshman guard Wayne
Dobbs and junior college transfer
John Mobley added strength to the
club. Dobbs, who is destined to be an
outstanding player for Oglethorpe, had
a good rookie season. Mobley, who
stands 6-5, came on strong at the sea-
son's end after a slow start and proved
to be a definite asset on the back-
But returnees from the 1956-57
club carried most of the load: Eddie
Starnes, Bruce Hauck, Billy Carter
and Scotty Shamp. Senior Starnes led
all scorers and rebounders, averaging
better than 15 points and some nine
rebounds per outing. Hauck had his
best scoring year in his three seasons
on the Petrel club; Carter was second
only to Starnes in the point-getting
derby and continued his ball-hawking
ways; and Shamp's work on the back-
boards more than offset his on-again-
off-again scoring habits.
Joe Sewell, who fires at the basket
from the portside, was sidelined the
first half of the season with glandular
fever, but came on to win a starting
berth at guard as the campaign closed.
Freshmen John Powell and Scott
Stevenson and senior Jimmy Clower
Baseball has returned to the Ogle-
thorpe campus after a one year lapse.
The momentum of previous seasons
has been lost, so the 1958 team must
begin from scratch.
Coach Pinholster feels that it is in
"much the same position as basket-
ball was last year." He stated "we have
several fine players, but our main
problem is that we don't have enough
good players, especially at the key
positions." This is understandable, for
the 1958 edition has but 1 1 men on
Most of the players are not assigned
to play one position as is the usual
case. For example, when Joe Sewell,
our only pitcher with previous experi-
ence has to be pulled, he goes to first
base. Joe Duckworth moves from first
to third. Third baseman Bruce Hauck
catches so catcher Billy Carter can
pitch. This is hardly an enviable situ-
ation for a coach, even one as able
and imaginative as Pinholster.
Another interesting item is that nine
of the eleven were on the basketball
team including cage manager Ted Bay-
ley, who plays right field. John Mobley,
the tenth member, is expected to re-
join them in a week or two. John was

rounded out the nine-man squad.
Clower, Starnes and Hauck will be
lost to graduation — but Pinholster
feels he can fill their places with sev-
eral strong prospects in the offing for
In chalking up their 18 victories
the Petrels captured dual wins over
Jacksonville (Ala.) State Teachers,
Georgia State College, the University
of Chattanooga, West Georgia College,
Valdosta State College, Piedmont Col-
lege, North Georgia College; and
single wins over Athens (Ala.) College,
Shorter College, College of Charleston
and Berry College. The six losses were
suffered at the hands of Mercer (twice),
Newberry, Athens College, College of
Charleston and Berry.
The Oglethorpe team was the best
defensive club the school has pro-
duced. In 24 games the opposition
averaged but 50.9 points a contest;
this was the third best in the country
among NAIA member schools.
Coach Garland Pinholster and
three of his basketball charges came
in for statewide acclaim at the end of
the 1957-58 cage season. Pinholster
was named Georgia small-college
Coach of the Year by the Atlanta
Journal "on the basis of Oglethorpe's
1 3-6 chart - - considering the inex-
perienced personnel Pinholster was
forced to work with."
Eddie Starnes, Petrel center, was
selected unanimously for the Georgia
small-college all-state first team and
chosen for the second team of the
Georgia all-college squad. Bruce
Hauck and Scotty Shamp were given
honorable mention for both the small-
college and all-college All-Georgia

He added, "We are cleanly and
neatly uniformed, thanks to our
Booster Club, and we are doing our
dead-level best, thanks to the fine
carry-over of morale by the boys from
our basketball squad.
Pinholster said, "with these things
in mind, my deepest respect is ex-
tended to these boys who are paying
the price of an organizational year,
and, who, even so, are doing their
best to make their opponents live as
hard as possible."

Dr. Martin Abbott, professor of
history, has brought to light another
little-known event of reconstruction
days in his latest article, "A Mountain
School in Tennessee: Some Recon-
struction Letter". It appeared in the
March 1958 issue of The Tennessee
It is little realized today, except by
historians studying Southern history,
that some areas of the South remained
loyal to the Union during the Civil
War. During the reconstruction, a
great deal of Federal money was used
to rehabilitate the freed men. However,
no funds were allocated to help the
poor whites, who comprised the
southern Union element.
Dr. Abbott's article relates the 1866
founding and early operation of a
school, by the New York philanthro-
pist C. R. Robert, purposely designed
for that group. The school was located
atop Lookout Mountain near Chatta-
nooga, Tennessee, and it was prob-
ably the only school of its kind.
