Frank Garson Library
to be Erected
By ARNOLD W. BAKER
At long last, Oglethorpe has con-
crete plans concerning the building of
a badly needed library. The proposed
structure will be of modern architec-
tual design, though at the same time
being in harmony with the overall
Gothic mood of the campus. It's facil-
ities will include study desks for stu-
dents, a record room and other up-to-
date library equipment. Although the
final draft of the plans is still on the
drawing board, construction is sup-
posed to begin in the fall of 1963.
The realization of these plans is due
to one of Oglethorpe's most disting-
uished alumni, Arthur Garson, who
has pledged 5100,000 to the build-
ing of the new library, which will be
named after his father, the late Mr.

Coincidence In Science?
From different parts of the coun-
try, coincidence has brought two
people together that are closely con-
nected to Oglethorpe. A boy from
Texas but now a freshman at Cross
Keys High School in Atlanta, and a
girl from Brunswick and a senior at
Miss Cheri Harben is the daughter
of Lt. Commander Luther A. Harben,
a 1942 science graduate of Ogle-
thorpe. Mr. Grady Rylander is a stu-
dent of Mr. J. W. Burgess, a 1960
science graduate of Oglethorpe.
These two students are the grand
prize winners in the 15th Annual
State Science Fair held at the Univer-
sity of Georgia earlier this month.

I was one of them.
When I opened the door to my of-
fice, located in the historic Old
House Office Building. I found two
sacks of mail and a stack of furniture
piled in the middle of the floor. That's
how the office was left by the former

moved to new quarters.

Ralph L. Dempsey, "27, died sud-
denly at his home in Tampa, Florida
March 1. 1963, of an apparent heart
Although he had not been a mem-
ber of the Board of Trustees but one
\ear, his association had been an
inspiration to others.
Mr. Dempsey was born in Fulton
County and attended school there,
graduating from Fulton High School.
After attending Oglethorpe Univer-
sity, he married the former Virginia
O'kelley "29. They moved to Jack-
sonville, Florida, and from there to
During World War 11. he enlisted
in the Army in 1942 and spent 37
months in the European Theater.
Returning to Bartow, Florida, he
opened the Dempsey Chevrolet, Inc.
in 1948, and the Dempsey Chevrolet,
Inc. in Tampa in 1954.
At the time of his death, he was
Chairman of the Board of the Semi-
nole Bank, a Director of the Univer-
sity of South Florida Foundation, a
Director of Berkley Preparatory
School and a member of tJie Univer-
sity Club and Tampa Yacht Club.
He was a Methodist and a Mason.
Oglethorpe mourns the loss of a
newspapers. Having completed Crew
Street grammar school in only two
short years. Mr. Carson was qualified
for Atlanta's Boys High at the age
of eight. Upon first entering high
school, he was given a mental test
along with several other boys ranging
from fourteen to sixteen years of age.
The group averaged around eighty
points, but Mr. Carson stepped up
and rang up a mark of 169! At the
age of ten. he was admitted to Ogle-
thorpe as a regular freshman, upon
the results of extensive tests which
revealed his mental development equal
to that of a boy of nineteen years. His
freshman courses included English,
history, economics, French, German
and the Bible.
One can imagine the many diffi-
culties and adjustments that conl'ronl
a person of youthful years who finds
himself in such a mature environment.
When he was attending school here at
Oglethorpe, for instance, many of his
classmates were getting married and
going into the service. For most stu-
dents, such an adjustment would have
been almost impossible to make. Mr.
Garson, however, consistent with his
unusual abilities, successfully com-
pleted his stay here at Oglethorpe.
As we trace Mr. Garson's life from
this early age to the present, one can
see that his capability along with
hard work has made him a most
successful businessman. After graduat-
ing from Oglethorpe in 1928, he
joined his father's young and strug-
gling clothing firm. At the age of
seventeen he knew the entire function
of his father's business. In 1934 one
of the major steps in his climb to
success in the business world was his
move to New York. His mission there
was to open a sales office for his
father's goods. This trip in itself was
an accomplishment for a boy of
twenty. New York then was not a
mere hour away by jet.
His career has stcadil\ climbed
upwards since then. Today he is the
president of his father's original small
clothing firm, now called the Lovable
Company. At present this company is
the acknowledged leader in its field,
having factories in seventeen foreign
countries as well as in many locations
in the United States,
loday, in addition to his business
duties, he is on the Board of Directors
of several social welfare and charit-
able institutions. He retains an avid
interest in sports, playing a good
game of golf himself. His intellectual
interests continue with his further
study of Russian, Japanese, and Span-
ish in his leisure time. And perhaps
of most immediate interest to us is his
active position on the Board of Trus-
tees of Oglethorpe.
Not only is he contributing SIOO.-
000, but is undertaking to raise
substantial additional funds. The
development of new and expanded
facilities on the campus will he a
stimulus to intellectual t;rovvth.

Mr. George C. Powell, Southern Zone
Vice President of Allstate Insurance
Company, to the Board of Trustees
of the University.
Mr. Powell comes to Atlanta from
Detroit, Michigan. He has been with
Allstate since 1945 and prior to that
time he was in investment banking
and served as a Captain with the 15th
Air Force in Europe.
Mr. Powell firmly believes in the
future growth of Oglethorpe Univer-
sity by stating "There is a strong
economic, social and educational need
in our system of free enterprise to
perpetuate the ideals found in our
independent liberal arts colleges.
Oglethorpe University has a great
challenge and responsibility to expand
its facilities in order to adequately
meet these needs and demands of the

It is exciting to be a part of this
challenge and with a dedicated alumni,

REMINISCING WITH THE
The present is an egotist. It grudg-
ingly gives a vague glimpse of the
future and is positively brutal to the
past, bludgeoning it further and fur-
ther into the remote dimness of
memory until it disappears complete-
ly. In writing this series, we have been
amazed at the number of instances
that kept our early days exciting, for-
gotten and brought to mind only by
Before our time here. Oglethorpe
had several literary magazines, printed
on its own press, the unusable re-
mains of which were still around at
our coming. Since then a new Ogle-
thorpe Literary Magazine has been
started, publicizing the work of stu-
dent hopefuls in prose and poetry, the
last giving the writer, who never had it
so good, a chance to cry out in ang-
uish at the pain of his situation.
But one of these poems, not for
the appreciation of the average under-
graduate, is not of this kind and is
one of those happy accidents that
recall the all-but-dead past. We here-
by give these verses by Ann Crowder,
'62, to you who also may remember.

the alumni the purpose and aims of
the Self-study project now in progress
at the University. He stated that
educational beliefs require it; that it is
more than a study, it is a blueprint
of growth of what Oglethorpe is to
become in 10 years. The study in-

sity; faculty, alumni, trustees and
Mr. George Goodwin spoke for the
Board of Trustees in saying that the
most difficult task of the trustees was
conveying to the faculty the apprecia-

and to Oglethorpe University.
The Flying Petrel
Petrel Basketball —
Petrel basketball is over for the
year, baseball and tennis are just start-
ing, and Coach Garland Pinholster has
gone overseas with a force that is fav-
ored to sweep Central and South
America and then turn its power on
the whole world.
Oglethorpe completed its basketball
season with a 2 1-7 record, not the best
in its history, but probably the finest.
The Petrels, rated at best a dark-
horse, finished 17-6 in regular season
play and accepted an invitation to the
NCAA regionals. From that moment
on, the story of Cinderella was almost
duplicated. It is history now.
The Petrels went to Louisville, won
two games, both upsets. Then they
went to the national NCAA finals.
They came away third in the nation,

Already honored with the title of
"The Daddy of Baseball at Ogle-

"Dean of Southern Baseball Coaches",
Anderson will see his career of 28

opened," reminisced Anderson when
contacted by phone in Albany, Ga.,
"but they were only playing basket-
ball in those first few years, and that
on an outdoor court. We just didn't
have enough male students to field
a baseball team!"

Letter From Saigon
The following article "Letter From

It has been, and will be, a long

Not long ago, a company of sold-

There is a war on in Vietnam.
Unable to report of my activities
regarding the war here, I concentrate
this writing on Saigon, the capitol
of South Vietnam.
Except for occasional incidents, to
the casual stroller down any of Sai-
gon's tree-lined boulevards, this city
does not give the appearance of a city
Yet Saigon is virtually surrounded
by Viet Con guerillas, and heavily
armed policemen guard streets and
government installations in the city.
Saigon is like a poised, confident,
sophisticated woman. She is not con-
fronted by the Communist mouse. In-
stead, she gathers her skirts and goes
about her business.
And business is good. An interna-
tional port, ships come and go every
day. The central market flourishes.
The influx of the American dollar
has given a noticeable boost to the
Art exhibits, both local and inter-
national, are almost weekly events.
Touring music groups are frequent.
Movie theaters feature Vietnamese,
French and American films. And
Vietnamese opera companies play to
packed houses nightly.
Spending the American dollar is
the American soldier, sailor, airman
and marine. Every bar, restaurant,
nightclub and "sing easy" does land
office business from midafternoon on
— and on.
(Some Vietnamese songs, very ro-
mantic, very popular and very beauti-
ful, have been deemed "un-nation-
alistic" and have been banned by the
government. Hence, a "sing easy" is

In this Far Eastern international
city, streets are crowded with a con-
glomeration of vehicles: sleek limo-
sines of the various embassies, mili-
tary vehicles, taxis, the various crop

hundreds of thousands of bicycles.

The spirit and character of the
Vietnamese is a wonderful thing.
Fortunately, I have been able to get
acquainted with many of them, and
to some I have become quite close.
These people have lost a lot. Ap-
proximately 1,000 South Vietnamese
soldiers are killed every month. And
the killing will continue this year, and
probably for several more.
Yet the people can still laugh.
Their humor is infectious. Their opti-
niisim is commendable, and I am often
envious of their genuine national pride

The majority of the people, I be-
lieve, like American citizens. Yet
some do not. Americans make friends
easily here, but the stupidity and
lack of foresight and understanding
of some Americans also helps to make
enemies. But this is a reciprocal thing.
Some Vietnamese make enemies of
Americans. Man, largely, still has to
learn to get along with man.
Sometimes late at night, I lie awake
listening to sounds of guns — and they
are not far off — reminders that a war
is going on here. Yet America is

It is interesting to observe the pait
that the Alumni plays in the major
development campaigns conducted by
other colleges and universities over
the country. As individuals or as a
nation, we are all at our best when we
arc most severly challenged. Certainly
the greatest era of progress of all col-
leges and universities has come when
the "chips are down". With the rise
of the Alumni, those workers going
out on the firing line to meet the
public are encouraged and heartened
by the solid support that their own
association must give them, as well
as the help and encouragement that
comes from the faculty, administra-
tion and students.
It is not too early to start thinking
about the gift that you will want to
make to the Oglethorpe Development
Campaign. This should be over and
above and apart from your regular
support of your Alumni Association.
This is something special and requires

has ever known. Every Alumni, every
student, every professor, every mem-
ber of administrative staff, every
janitor, as a matter of fact, everyone
that is now, or has been, connected
in any way with Oglethorpe University
must stand up and be counted with
your gifts and support. There can't be
but one goal and one final result —
committed to South Vietnam as it is
in spots all over the globe.
The question "Why Vietnam"? is
easily answered. First, no country, nor
its peoples, should be subject to an
ideology it does not want. We are
assisting the Vietnamese in combating
an ideology it does not want. And
second, I would rather be committed
to stop Communism in the Far East
than on the west coast of the United
