Dear Fellow Alumni;
Spring is in the air and days are getting
longer but time is getting short for us to
reach our campaign goal by Alumni Day.
I am counting on you to send in your con-
tribution today. I would like to write each
of you personally but that is impossible with
over four thousand aiumni on our rolls.
This method of commimication does not
le.=sen the urgency of the appeal.
The Booster Club, through a challenge
goal, has done their share. Now it is up to
us. The size of your gift isn't the most im-
portant factor. 1 am confident that if we
reach our contributor goal of 1,050, we will
meet our monetary goal of $.^0,000. We are
one-half of the way there now, but ;:till need
S47 contributors to reach our contributor
Oglethorpe will start an ambitious build-
ing program this Spring. The faculty and
student body are expanding rapidly. Now
is the time for us to really let our Alma
Mater know we are behind her. Your check
today will add your name to your class
honor roll in the next issue of the FLYING
PETREL. Look now in this issue. If you are
not listed there, do something about it. It
will make you feel good as Spring bursts
out all over.

Final National Basketball
Statistics Give Petrels
The Oglethorpe Stormy Petrel basketball
team made an impressive showing in the
final statistics released by the National Col-
legiate Athletic Bureau.
The Gold and Black hoop togs have been
packed away for another season and Coach
Garland Pinholster and his coaches have
turned their fancies to spring sports and
recruiting for next year's basketball team.
The Petrel camp rejoiced however when the
final stats arrived.
The Petrels were in the nation's elite in
four team categories and one individual
Oglethorpe ranked ninth among the lead-
ers in average scoring margin over all op-
ponents. The average Petrel victory margin
was 17.7 points per game. The Oglethorpe
defensive average of 61.6 was good enough
to tie for tenth among the nation's defen-
sive teams. Offensively, the Petrels ranked
13th in field goal percentage with .511 and
the free throw percentage of .762 was ninth
in the nation.
Individually, senior Walker Heard's free
throw accuracy ranked 23rd in the final
statistics. The 6-7 Atlantan made good on
107 of his 125 attempts for a batting aver-
age of .856.
The NCAB statistics added a final icing
to the already outstanding Oglethorpe rec-
ord of 22-6.
