thorpe University Field House on the
athletic field at 1:00 p.m.
Oglethorpe students and main-
tenance staff have pitched in to get the
new baseball infield in shape for H-
Day. The Petrels will play the Valdosta
State Rebels at 1:30 p.m.
A brief refreshment period will fol-

O. U. GETS SEISMOGRAPH
Oak Ridge National Laboratories, a
subsidiary of tiie Carbide Nuclear Cor-
poration, has donated a seismograph
to Oglethorpe University.
Roy N. Goslin, Oglethorpe Profes-
sor of Physics, estimates the value of
the instrument at $3,000.
It is the hope of the University to
become an official seismograph station.
It would then be a part of the national
network which reports to the U. S.
Coast & Geodetic Survey, a division of
the Federal Department of Commerce.
Before acceptance as an official sta-
tion, an installation must be in opera-
tion for approximately one year during
which time its accuracy is checked
against that of the other stations. Mr.
Goslin, who was instrumental in get-
ting the instrument for Oglethorpe,
pointed out that it is "like a year of
A seismograph works somewhat like
a lie detector. Several pens wliich are
free to vibrate ride on a rolling drum
which is covered with calibrated light-
An earth tremor causes the pens to
vibrate, and the calibration indicates
the time of the tremor. When a number
of reports are received by the Survey,
it is able to determine where the tremor
occurred by comparing the different
amounts of fluctuation at each station.
The purpose of Oglethorpe's station
would be to increase the accuracy of
reporting nuclear explosions, earth-
quakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes
and other natural or man-made earth

"The need for financial support of

exist without receiving a substantial
amount of outside funds. Matching
plans offer you the opportunitv of giv-
ing your alma mater the benefit of two
dollars for every one that you give.
Alumni have contributed a record
amount of $7,044 to Oglethorpe in
the current fiscal year. This surpasses,
by far, all previous annual amounts
given of which there is any record.
And alumni may add to this up to
Homecoming Day for NAAOU dues

REMINISCING WITH THE
Oglethorpe University, Georgia
It has been some time now since we
have been getting our mail in a reason-
able time after mailing. Memory is not
taxed, however, to recall the day when
letters, parcels and all things vitally
important took the grand tour before
ending in our box, often long after
their worth was over. Anything ad-
dressed to Oglethorpe University,
Georgia, went first to Oglethorpe,
Georgia, then to Fort Oglethorpe,
Georgia, then, the postal official for
the first time seeing the word "Univer-
sity", to Emory University, coming at
last to its intended destination, old
The change of the old address to
just plain Atlanta, Georgia, was not
made without a wrench in the hearts
of many of us. Oglethorpe University,
Georgia, looked very fine on our letter
heads. But we gave up our tradition
for progress, and, unlike much that
goes by that name, this progress
brought benefits. We do get our mail.
The change was not the only one
made in the Post Office since our ar-
rival. Then the location of that center
of activity was what is now the alcove
of the Great Hall of Phoebe Hearst
(Administration Building to the Old
Timers; Arts Building to the Middle
Timers) and was run by one Mrs. Al-
ward. The mail came (when it came)
by train, thrown off with nonchalance
but accuracy right into a water hole.
Outgoing mail was grabbed by a hook.
At train time a little green, two-wheel-
ed cart was pushed to the station
across Peachtree and back to spend
its remaining hours in a little alley, in
front of which was written on the pave-
ment "No Parking Pease."
In 1945 Mrs. Alward went and so
did the Post Office from the Great
Hall. It was moved to the White Hall
across from the stairs going down to
the cafeteria. Here it was presided over
by Louise Watkins, the guardian angel
of our early years, and later by Marian
Weltner, who afterwards became the
wife of Joe Cannon '48. She was fol-
lowed by Betty Goldthwaite (nee Bene-
field) '41, wife of John Goldthwaite
'43, then an instructor here. In 1949
came many changes — a family for Bet-
ty, a temporary postmaster, Elgin Mac-
Connell, now in the Education Depart-
ment here, and in the summer a per-
manent postmistress, Mrs. Dan Grip-

The Atlanta Century
There is nothing as old as yester-

prise, which appears weekly in the At-

Shavin and Edwards became in-
terested in the feature sometime last
year. It was triggered by the forth-
coming centennial of the Civil War,
called the "War Between the States"
by true Rebels.
The newsmen could handle the writ-
ing chores, but the complete research
needed for such a project was pro-
hibitive to other than an historian who
specialized in that era. Dr. Abbott was
contacted to fill this role, and he ac-
cepted, completing the staff of the
newspaper within a paper.
Dr. Abbott, an Oglethorpe faculty
member since 1952, has written nu-
merous articles about the Civil War
and Reconstruction Days which have
been published in many historical

to the railroad station. The closeness
to the route of travel did not help the
situation. The next year, Mrs. Grippo

The Flying Petrel
'59 -'60 BASKETBALL
"It's like eating a good meal follow-
ed by a poor desert." was Coach Gar-
land Pinholster's comment when he
was asked to summarize the 1959-60
The desert, of course, referred to
the Petrels" double loss in the 25th
District playoffs of the NAIA which
was held in Tampa, Fla., during the
latter part of February.
Regular season and GIAC tourna-
ment play found the Birds with an ex-
cellent 21-3 won-lost record. Two of
these games were lost by two points.
The first against St. Bernard 68-66
and the second with Stetson 66-64.
The University of Georgia took the
opening contest of the year 68-50.
Jay Rowland, sophomore guard led
Oglethorpe in point making and in the
with 352 and 14 respectively. Jay Dye,
who earned pivot post on the All-
Georgia All-Star squad, followed with
313 total points and 12 per game.
Tommy Norwood was named to the
second squad All-Star team. The
flashy guard scored 286 points in 26
games for 1 1 markers a game average.
"Dye," said Pinholster, "was steady
throughout the season. He is my kind
of ball player and will be hard to re-
Morris Mitchell, 6" 51/2" freshman,
probably has the best chance to fill
the center position. He is a lefthander
who moves exceptionally well for a big
man. Although he played in 22 games,
his actual playing time was little. How-
ever, Mitchell scored 126 points and
grabbed 93 rebounds, which placed
him second to Dye in rebounds per
game with 5.73 to his credit. Dye col-
lected a total of 181 in 26 games for
6.96 per game.
Pinholster had that "wait "til next
year"" look when he talked about the
way his freshmen, Mitchell and Bob
Nance 6"4"" forward, handled them-
selves in the playoffs. Their play, he
said, was the "biggest consoling factor
of the trip."
"Mobility was my only concern; I
knew they could go offensively, but 1
didn"t know if they could go defensive-
ly. I believe they can hold their own

was Buddy Goodwin. The 6"1" hustler
from Silver Grove, Kentucky, filled
the forward spot opposite Roger Couch

They opened their 16 game season
against The Citadel on March 18 and
The play was ragged and the prac-
tice handicap proved too great. The
cadets took the two-day double header
8-2 and 11-0.
Eight boys familiar to those who
followed Oglethorpe"s basket-
ball team are on the baseball roster.
They include Tommy Norwood, Jay
Rowland, Buddy Goodwin, Roger
Couch, Wayne Dobbs, Morris Mit-
ship from the LaGrange Panthers.
With 45 seconds remaining in the
game, and the Petrels on the wrong end
of a 41-37 score, he followed Jay
Dye's field goal with two more after
intercepting two LaGrange passes. He
added another point at the free throw
line. Goodwin made seven points in
that contest, five of which came with-
in 30 seconds of the final whistle.
Next year Goodwin will probably
make the fight for a regular guard slot
interesting, because Pinholster hopes
to field a tall front line. He discovered
in the playoffs that a team cannot win
unless they have forward height. Good-
win at 6'!" does not meet that require-
Another lesson the Petrel mentor
learned was that a team competing in
stiff playoff games is at a disadvantage
unless it plays a tough regular season
schedule game in and game out. Coach
Pinholster is making every effort to up-
grade the opponents list for next year.
Jay Dye, a hard man to replace, is
the only senior on the squad. The
1960-61 team will be an experienced
one, and the prospects look good for
another fine season. If Pinholster can
find two big men, preferably junior
college transfers, to go with the present
group, the Petrels will have an excel-
lent chance of making that Kansas
City trip in the next go "round.

Weakest spot? Catching!
"We'll really miss olc Billy Carter
behind the plate," offered Pinholster
witsfully. "He hit .435 — a real team
leader. If I had Billy back this year,
I'd be one of the cockiest baseball
managers you ever met."
Goodwin and Couch, neither with
much experience with a mask, will
share the catching burden. If either
or both come through, the Petrels
could better last season's 10-3 won-lost
Both the infield and outfield should
be stronger than in previous years.
With evident pleasure Pinholster
said, "Guthrie and Norwood can really
roam that outfield.""
Dobbs and Rowland are best bets
to repeat at the keystone positions.
Mitchell and Nance are fighting it
out for first base. Physically, Mitchell,
a 6'5y2" southpaw, has the edge. He
can slam that ball, too, as was evi-
denced by his 400 foot home run in
the high school All-Star game last year.
Third base is wide open. Several
players can handle the job including
Adair, Norwood and possibly Borden.
Team batting looks better. More
players can hit moderately well, and
Mitchell and Guthrie could develop
Left handers should cause less
trouble with Guthrie, Mitchell, Adair

from the wrong side. An interesting
sidelight is that Nance throws right
and bats left. Dalgleish is the other way
Forecast for the season?
"We're out to win the GIAC pen-

with his new association with Boland
Associates, a San Francisco sales pro-
motion and advertising firm. In an un-
solicited testimonial. Jay said. "My
own accounts are in electronics, which
continually surprises me for it was less
than a half year ago that I didn't know
the difference between an amp and
a lamp, much less what a tunnel diode
or complementary NPN and PNP
transistorized circuit was. If ever any-
one asks you of the benefits of the
Oglethorpe Plan in a broad back-
ground, refer them to me for it was
just that as opposed to a specialized
training which made the new field pos-
sible." Thanks, Jay.
