MRS. VINCENT RESIGNS 
AS ALUMNI PRESIDENT 

Mrs. Annette Vincent has resigned as President of 
the Oglethorpe Alumni Association. Mrs. Vincent has 
proven time and again that she is one of Oglethorpe's 
must enthusiastic and loyal alumni. In fact, it took 
stern advice from her physican for her to make the 
decision. 

All alumni and friends of the college extend Mrs. 
Vincent a wish for complete recovery and give our 
sincere thanks for her outstanding contributions to the 
college— EDITORS. 




Van K. Brock, assistant professor of English at 
Oglethorpe is a poet of national renown. His poem, 
"The Sea Birds," was published in the October 23 
issue of The New Yorker magazine. We proudly 
reprint his poem with the author's permission. 



THE SEA BIRDS 

by VAN K. BROCK 

No light except the stars, but from the cliff 
I saw in motion, out on the rolling waves, 
The white sea birds that swim beyond the surf. 

Their movements made a pattern on the mauve, 
Contorted stretch of cold, corrosive water, 
Where even the images of stars dissolve. 

When I had thought the birds were fixed in order, 
I saw the swimming rim of their starlit ring 
Minutely swerve and spiral toward the center; 

The birds that had been swimming in between 
Were shuttled outward on a wheel of light, 
Reflecting, like the sea, the stars' design. 

I paused, and looked, and saw a star burn out 
And sink back into space as through a fissure. 
It was an ancient word without a thought. 

Perhaps birds love the pattern for the measure 
It imposes on the ruptured waves at night; 
Perhaps they spiral purely for their pleasure. 

While I was trying to untie this knot, 
A motion in the motion of the weather 
Turned, and the birds turned, too, and tore the net 

I knitted for them. (A star had torn another 

I had knitted for stars.) I saw them climb the gale 

That drove small arrows in through every feather — 

One by one they spread their flapping sails. 
I think the stars are moving in a school 
With restless birds above a freezing pool, 
And no one shall put salt on their bright tails.

Ted D. Bayley, Jr., New Alumni President 



Ted D. Bayley, Jr., has been named president of the 
Oglethorpe Alumni Association. He replaces Mrs. Annette 
Vincent who had to resign the office due to ill health. 

Mr. Bayley is the District Scout Executive of the Atlanta 
area council of the Boy Scouts of America. 

Throughout his high school and college career Bayley 
found time to participate in many extra-curricular activities 
while maintaining a high scholastic average. 

After transferring to Oglethorpe from the University of 
Florida, Mr. Bayley became treasurer of the Junior Class, 
then president of the student body in his senior year. He 
was selected for Who's Who Among Students in American 
Colleges and Universities in 1958. 

Mr. Bayley was a member of the Blue Key, honorary 
leadership fraternity, and Boars Head, honorary scholastic 
fraternity, and president of the Westminister Fellowship. 

In athletics, he was manager of the basketball team and 
received his letter in baseball in 1958. 

Mr. Bayley received the Oglethorpe Award of Merit for 
the outstanding Male Graduate at his graduation ceremonv 
in 1958. 

Shortly after his graduation from Oglethorpe, Mr. Bay- 
ley married the former Ellen Kinsey, and they are the 
parents of three daughters, Angela, Barbara, and Karen. 
His 'sons' are all the Boy Scouts in this area. 

Mr. Bayley is a captain in the United States Marine 
Corps Reserve. He joined the Reserves in January, 1957, 
while still a student at Oglethorpe. He graduated from the 
Officer Training Course at Quantico, Virginia, and was 
commissioned and entered active duty in July, 1958. For 
three years, Mr. Bayley served as an artillery officer and 
an air observer in the Marine Corps. 




Ted D. Bayley, Jr. 

As a youngster, Mr. Bayley was an eager and active Boy 
Scout. He was an Eagle Scout and a member of the Order 
of the Arrow in scouting. 

After leaving the Marine Corps he entered scouting pro- 
fessionally, and has been with the Boy Scouts of America 
ever since. He attended the 235th National Training School 
for Professional Scouters, then served as Camp Director, 
OA Lodge Advisor, and Director of the Junior Leader 
Training Camp in Augusta, Georgia. He was transferred 
to Atlanta in November, 1964. 

Since his return to Atlanta, Mr. Bayley has become an 
active member of the East Point Rotary Club, the American 
Humanics Foundation, and the Oglethorpe College Alumni 
Association. 





Dr. Cressy 



Mr. Pinholster 



Garland F. Pinholster and Dr. Cheever Cressy have been 
named Vice-Presidents by Dr. Paul R. Beall, President of 
Oglethorpe. 

Mr. Pinholster has been named Vice-president for De- 
velopment and Dr. Cressy has been appointed Vice-presi- 
dent for Academic Affairs and Dean of the College. 

Mr. Pinholster will spearhead an area described by Dr. 
Beall as "most important to the college's successful pro- 
gram for growth." Development encompasses the school's 
vital need for new buildings, new money and new students. 

The author of four books on basketball, Mr. Pinholster 
is currently at work on another book on the techniques of 
the game. The new book is scheduled for publication early 
next year. 

Mr. Pinholster has served as chairman of the Governor's 
State Council on Physical Fitness, and in the spring of 
1963, he was selected by the United States Olympic Com- 
mittee as head coach of the United States basketball team 
for the Pan American and World Games. 



Pinholster and Cressy Vice-Presidents 



A charter member of the Oglethorpe Athletic Hall of 
Fame, Mr. Pinholster will also continue to guide the col- 
lege's athletic programs. 

Like Mr. Pinholster, Dr. Cressy is a long-standing mem- 
ber of the Oglethorpe Faculty. Dr. Cressy graduated magna 
cum laude from Tufts University in Medford, Mass. He 
received his masters and Ph.D. from Fletcher School of 
Law and Diplomacy, located on the Tufts' campus. 

Before coming to Oglethorpe, he taught at Tufts Uni- 
versity, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Bow- 
doin College in Brunswick, Maine. 

Dr. Cressy still teaches his course in International Rela- 
tions, and finds time to do research on a subject of partic- 
ular interest to him, the personal diplomacy of heads of 
states, particularly that between President Franklin D. 
Roosevelt and Prime Minister MacKenzie King of Canada. 

Dr. Cressy finds time in his busy schedule to serve as 
Lecturer and Discussant for the Atlanta and Fulton County 
School Systems World Affairs Seminars, and is much in 
demand to speak on international relations on radio, tele- 
vision, and before civic and church groups. 

Dr. George C. Seward, former Vice-President and Dean, 
resigned late in the summer in order to fulfill a long 
cherished ambition of Foundation work. Dr. Seward had 
been at Oglethorpe for 21 years.

ALUMNI SETS $30,000 GOAL 

The Officers and Directors of the Oglethorpe Alumni 
Association met recently to map plans for alumni giving at 
Oglethorpe and set a goal of $30,000 to be raised for the 
coming year. The meeting was the first for President Ted 
Bayley in his new capacity. Over-all, nine Officers and 
Directors attended the meeting. 

The $30,000 goal was set on the basis of 1050 con- 
tributors. 

A Special Gifts breakfast meeting was held on November 
12 and the campaign was formally inaugurated. Later this 
year, a Tele-Fund Committee consisting of women alumni 
and alumni wives will initiate a telephone campaign 
throughout the five-county area. 

The Alumni group also set January 8 as Homecoming 
Day. Festivities will include a reception for all alumni at 
Cranham, the college home of the President, followed by 
a basketball game with arch-rival Georgia Southern. 

The next Alumni Directors' meeting will be held on 
December 1 at noon in Decatur. Ansel Paulk is hosting 
the group at the Executive Club. 



Cash Named 
Director of 
Alumni Affairs 




Charlie Cash has been appointed Director of Alumni 
Affairs by President Paul Rensselaer Beall. 

Mr. Cash replaces Mrs. Joyce Minors who resigned 
earlier this summer. 

Joining Oglethorpe in April as Director of Public Rela- 
tions, Mr. Cash will continue in this capacity in addition to 
his new duties. 

Both Alumni and Public Relations will report to the 
Vice-President for Development in the college's organiza- 
tional structure. 



Five Ph.D.'s Added to 
Oglethorpe Faculty 

Five Ph.D.'s have been added to the faculty of Ogle- 
thorpe College for the fall trimester of 1965. 

Dr. Paul R. Beall, President of the College, said that 
these new faculty appointments are a part of the enlarge- 
ment of the Oglethorpe faculty occasioned by the expansion 
program of the liberal arts college. 

Dr. Ajit Narhari Bhagat, who holds a doctorate from 
the University of Bombay in India, will join the Division 
of Social Studies as Assistant Professor of Economics. Dr. 
Bhagat has lately been associated with a research project 
of the Agency for International Development (AID) at the 
University of Wisconsin. He was earlier associated with the 
Economic Commission for Asia and the Far East of the 
United Nations, serving with the Economic Development 
Branch in Bangkok, Thailand. Dr. Bhagat's undergraduate 
work was done at Gujarat University in India, and he holds 
the M.A. degree also from the University of Bombay, 
where he was a member of the faculty. 

Dr. Sandra T. Bowden has received an appointment as 
Assistant Professor of Biology. She will replace Dr. Joseph 
M. Branham who has received a research grant for study 
in Scotland for the academic year 1965-66. Dr. Bowden is 
a graduate of Georgia Southern College, and she holds M.A. 
and Ph.D. degrees from the University of North Carolina. 

Dr. Jack Brien Key has been appointed Assistant Pro- 
fessor of History. Dr. Key was a member of the faculties 
of the University of Alabama, the U. S. Naval Academy, 
and Auburn University. His doctorate is from the Johns 
Hopkins University, and he holds BA. and M.A. degrees 
from Birmingham Southern College and Vanderbilt Uni- 
versity respectively. 

Dr. Lorella A. McKinney has been appointed Associate 
Professor of Education. Dr. McKinney has previously served 
on the faculties of Emory University, Ohio Northern, and 
Ohio State. She holds the Ph.D. degree from Ohio State 



University and the M.A. from Ohio State. Dr. McKinney 
received the B.S. in Education from Ohio Northern Uni- 
versity where she was the highest ranking graduate of her 
class. 

Dr. Vera B. Zalkow joins the science faculty as Associate 
Professor of Chemistry. Dr. Zalkow comes to Oglethorpe 
from Oklahoma State University where she was a research 
associate. She holds the Ph.D. from Wayne State University, 
the M.A. degree from Smith College, and the B.S. degree 
from the University of Michigan. She has also held research

The Flying Petrel 



Development Report 

by Garland Pinholster 

Mr. Dick Loughborough, Trust Officer of the Fulton 
National Bank, will begin a series of articles in this issue 
of the Flying Petrel. His aim is to give all persons interested 
in Oglethorpe information about trusts and wills. He begins 
this series of articles at our invitation. During his 10 years 
at the Fulton National Bank as a trust officer, Mr. Lough- 
borough has accumulated a portfolio of several million dol- 
lars in bequests for Oglethorpe College. His daughter, 
Carolyn, is a loyal Oglethorpe alumnus. He is an expert 
in estate planning. Most of these funds were set aside 
for Oglethorpe as a direct result of Mr. Loughborough's 
knowledge of inheritance tax legislation. Virtually all of 
these funds would normally have gone to the Federal 
Government in form of inheritance taxes. 

We hope, through this series of articles, you will become 
better acquainted with estate planning and tax laws so that 
you can better plan for your family and still include those 
philanthropies closest to your heart. We obviously hope 
that Oglethorpe College will have a prominent place in 
these philanthropies. 

A detailed financial report for this current fiscal year 
is included. One of our aims is to keep our alumni and 
friends informed on the progress of each fund. At the end 
of the year a report will be given showing the name of 
every contributor and how the money is spent. We are 
currently making a strong appeal to corporations and 
foundations. 

We now have four full-time admissions counselors. A 
fifth one is to be hired in the near future. I am sure all of you 
are aware by now of our two million dollar loan from the 
Federal Government for the building of student housing and 
a student union. Oglethorpe is on the move. No matter 
where the majority of our funds come from the alumni 
drive will be the most significant avenue of assistance. We 
need your financial boost. We need your enthusiasm. We 
need your interest. 



YOUR LEGACY 

by DICK LOUGHBOROUGH 

Fulton National Bank 
Vice President and Trust Officer 

Your legacy . . . 

From the past you have inherited a precious thing — your 
diploma. The lives of our alumnae have been enriched and 
made more secure by Oglethorpe. 

Equipped with our college education, and with the cour- 
age of those who built for our future, we now seek ways 
to secure tomorrow. 

Do you have a will? Every single one of us should — to 
preserve our estate and to protect our families. 

Many alumnae have named Oglethorpe in their wills — 
some amounts small and some large. But whatever the 
amount, it will insure the future of Oglethorpe and the 
world of tomorrow. 

With proper planning, it is possible for you to remember 
Oglethorpe in your will and still leave more for the financial 
security and well-being of your family. 

An elderly lady dropped in last week to review her estate 
plan. She had an estate of about $300,000, an aged mother 
about 85, and a sister about her own age. The financial 
security of her mother and sister were of prime importance 
to her. Under her former will, Uncle Sam would have col- 
lected about $60,000 in estate tax. By leaving a portion of 
her estate to Oglethorpe College and two charities at the 
death of the survivor of her mother and sister, her estate 
tax has been reduced from $60,000 to about $3,000. This 
not only means that she has saved about $57,000 in 
estate tax, but she has provided greater financial security 
for her mother and sister. 

With proper planning, possibly you can effect tax savings 
and still do more for your family.

A Letter From. The President 



Dear Fellow Alumni: 

I'm sure that you have noticed that Oglethorpe is on the 
move! The student body is the largest in modern history. 
The campus is clean, bright, and building. Items of real 
quality education have been added. The faculty has been 
enlarged. Oglethorpe — its student body — its faculty — its ad- 
ministration and its board of trustees are not content to 
be propelled on the tide of American prosperity. They desire 
to contribute to this success and ultimate victory. 

As president of the Alumni Association, it is my hope that 
we, as alumni, will not be content to ride the coat tail to 
success, but will join in this Forward Oglethorpe move with 
the gusto of real supporters. 

Regardless of the years of your association with Oglethorpe, 
I'm sure that you can recall warm memories, and have bene- 
fitted from what you received. I hope that you share with me 
the pride that Oglethorpe is still a small, private, liberal arts 
institution, offering a quality education in a world that more 
and more demands the "mass" approach. 

Once again our alma mater is looking to us for support. 
It needs our spirit, enthusiasm, and yes, our financial support. 
Regardless of your circumstances, you are in a position to 
offer your contribution in these areas. In a few days you will 
receive more information about the 1965-66 Forward Ogle- 
thorpe campaign. Your support, large or small, will make a 
difference. I sincerely hope you will give this campaign every 
possible consideration. 

So, welcome aboard! I'm looking forward to meeting you 
in the coming months at one of our alumni gatherings. Best 
wishes to you and your loved ones. 

Sincerely, 

TED D. BAYLEY 

President National Alumni Association

A House SHOULD Be A Home 



President Paul Rensselaer Beall 
issued a challenge for architects 
on the new dormitory complex 
and student union buildings, yet 
to be constructed. We would 
like for our alumni to read Dr. 
Bead's essay — Editors. 




This fall (1965), action and growth dominate the atmos- 
phere on the campus at Oglethorpe College. 

Our student enrollment is approximately double that of 
a year ago. 

We have credits for $2,000,000 for use to begin to build 
new dormitories and our student union. 

In the next decade (if we succeed as we expect and pro- 
pose to), we will spend ten to thirty million dollars building 
Oglethorpe College. 

Our most urgent concern at the moment is a master plan 
for the college and architectural conceptions to support our 
master plan. 

As a dedicated liberal artist, I incline to traditionalism. 
I agree with Mr. Justice Holmes, especially in the hysterical 
atmosphere of modern times, that "We need education in 
the obvious more than investigation of the abstruse." 

This does not mean that I am reactionary. Once or twice 
a year I manage a visit with my artist friends at Big Sur. 
Of the "way-out," these folks are the outest, yet I suspect 
that two of them, a writer and a primitive painter, will live. 
I enjoy contemporary writers (Mencken, Thurber, Run- 
yon, Graves, Steinbeck, Mann, King, Day, and many others) 
as much as the classicists. 

On my first trip to Oslo I had a free day-and-a-half to 
see Norway. I spent all of my whole free day in the incom- 
parable Vigeland Sculpture Park. Here is contemporary 
sculpture the equal of Phidias, Michelangelo or Rodin. 

I enjoy some great things in contemporary architecture: 
the Pentagon, Radio City, a new sheet-rolling mill in Steu- 
benville. If these structures weren't contemporary they 
would be travesties. 

I do not know of any modern hotel in the same class for 
function or beauty (including plumbing) as such old master- 
pieces as the Waldorf, Drake, Broadmoor and Huntington. 
This is understandable and no fault of architects, since the 
purpose of the architecture in a modern hotel (as in a 
passenger automobile) is to get by and make money. The 
public can go jump. 

I think that the mission of the liberal arts is to awe and 
inspire the student with the magnificence of the best in his 
cultural heritage. 

Our cultural heritage is the lasting traditional and con- 
ventional. Most every contemporary thing is incessantly on 
trial to see if it will be good enough to become traditional. 
I know that today's technics in nuclear applications and 
computer analysis are the best ever. (Ergo, there's been no 
other!) I sincerely think that contemporary teen-age hair- 
cuts, style for the guitar, structureless theatre, meaningless 
poetry, atonal and formless music, ridiculous painting, and 
Bible editions that would monkey with the poetry of the 



Psalms or the style of the Good Samaritan parable in the 
King James Version, etc.; most such "red-hot-hit" goodies 
are on trial. 

That I happen to be disenchanted with some of these 
things is totally beside the point. 

In the liberal arts, it behooves us to expose our students 
to their heritage so that they have a frame of reference in 
evaluating contemporary hysterics. 

My superbly articulate colleague, Dr. Wallace M. Alston, 
has said of the pace and mood of modern times, 

We feel pushed, crowded, strained, and breathless. 
We are conscious of being too busy to be good mem- 
bers of our families or good citizens of our communi- 
ties; too busy to become good students; to busy to 
enjoy music, good reading, and art; too busy to be 
good friends and neighbors; too busy to pray; too busy 
to think. 

It is my purpose and ambition in continuing to build Old 
(1835) Oglethorpe to have our architecture resist rather 
than reflect contemporary "strain and breathlessness." For 
this reason I favor architecture for Oglethorpe College that 
may be readily recognized for its indebtedness to a tradi- 
tional past. 

An architect explained to us that the campus design of 
school "X" (traditional) pleases parents, uncles, cousins, 
sisters, aunts, students and youngsters who would like to be 
students — in fact, all of Mr. Public; but the architecture of 
school "Y" (very modern) pleases architects, and that should 
be our test and goal. I am skeptical that our most sophisti- 
cated public taste is so vacuous. 

It is fascinating to be with some "public"; men, women 
or children, domestic or foreign, and take them to see the 
Chapel of a great new university. Everyone guesses, "What 
is it?" Veterinary medicine, ballistics research, fine arts? 

A church? Oh. 

Religion, tending to be slightly traditional, isn't it sen- 
sible that a church look like a church? Just as an aside, I 
am so idealistic that I suspect a non-religious genius of an 
architect could not design a great church. 

I have a delight in driving twice a day over off-traffic 
streets between Tuxedo Road and Oglethorpe College 
through a residential neighborhood without peer for mag- 
nificence, charm and beauty in the world. I don't make such 
a statement flippantly. I know such neighborhoods well as 
Grosse Pointe, the Main Line, Westchester, Long Island, 
Pasadena, Pebble Beach, and others. I have never seen a 
more beautiful residential section than the above-mentioned 
Atlanta neighborhood. There doesn't seem to be much con- 
temporary architecture in this neighborhood. 

I know the merit of much contemporary structural technic 
that is economical. Certainly we must use the sensibly- 
indicated modern materials, components and fabricating 
methods. Too frequently, however, a quick-and-dirty 
method proves to be cheap and so is adopted as vogue. 
Example: it is quite the thing nowadays in painting a room 
to, by jiminy, paint it. Blind labor is satisfactory. Paint 
being selected, walls, woodwork, light and switchplate, pic- 
ture moulding, window frames, door-knobs, lockplates and 
key are painted. A cat walking in on such a paint job does 
so at his peril. The ultimately cheap paint job. Half of the 
beautiful rooms in Old Oglethorpe have been so painted. 
We have restored some of them and hope to rescue others. 



Page 10 



The Flying Petrel 



I am familiar with a small, modern college dormitory 
that has the merit of being an original. It may not be fair 
to associate this building's modernness with its poor func- 
tion, but all it needs is fixing. The roof leaks, the rooms 
have no soundproofing, linoleum floor tiles are always 
missing, plywood room doors have holes in them, the 
shingles curl, exterior wood trim is splitting, and the screens 
must be replaced. Who can afford such an inexpensive 
building? 

With gentle illustrations and restrained understatement, 
I have been trying to communicate the idea that my en- 
thusiasms are slight for building a contemporary-archi- 
tecture Oglethorpe campus. 

We don't hate everything since the Greeks nor do we 



want Easter-hat architecture where a slab-sided box having 
been decided upon for structure then the daily doodad must 
be selected for style signature. Shall we try a Greek Ortho- 
dox onion turret, a waffle screen, dentils upside down, or 
possibly a nine-pointed star? 

If I have made any of my conviction clear, is there in 
our page-and-a-half of small print yellow-page listing of 
architects a superbly good professional who can sincerely 
share any of my view? Nothing, it would seem to me, 
would be sillier or more presumptuous than for me to 
undertake to change an architect's convictions. 

Replies and comments on this essay are solicited. I am 
especially anxious, needless to say, to discover if I have 
any support. 



Architects Named for Oglethorpe Expansion Program 



by Charlie Cash 

"Dr. Beall felt that he could communicate with us." 

So stated Francis Sheetz of Sheetz and Bradfield in At- 
lanta, during an informal press conference recently con- 
cerning the appointment of his firm as the architects for the 
expansion program at Oglethorpe. Earlier in the day, Presi- 
dent Paul Rensselaer Beall had formally announced that 
Mr. Sheetz and his partner Richard Barfield had been 
selected by a special committee of trustees to make the 
formal plans for the new men's and women's dormitory 
complex and the student activities building. 

A new library follows on the agenda of new buildings 
planned at Oglethorpe. 

Mr. Sheetz said that the current architecture at Ogle- 
thorpe, "is one of the finest examples of traditional archi- 
tecture in this part of the country." His partner, Mr. Brad- 
field, echoes: "The style at Oglethorpe represents the best 
of traditional architecture." Both men nastily reminded 
that to continue the present style would cost about 6 to 8 
times more than when the buildings were constructed almost 
fifty years ago. Mr. Sheetz continued: "Oglethorpe's Tudor 



Gothic style has a heritage and we'll capture the character 
of this style in our new designs." 

Both men had thoroughly digested President Beall's essay 
on architecture, printed elsewhere in this issue, and stated 
that they plan to maintain the integrity of the current quad- 
rangle. They also said that traditional form is not as im- 
portant as traditional character in developing the new 
project. 

Examples of the Sheetz and Bradfield Company's work 
are: the First Federal building downtown, the Phi Gamma 
Delta house at Georgia Tech, the Jacksonville Beach De- 
velopment, and the much-heralded Gulf Oil service station 
at the airport. The latter has received international recogni- 
tion for its ingenuity in design. 

"Realizing that most of these buildings are contemporary 
in design, we might add that we are proud of several savings 
and loan buildings and a Town Hall for a neighboring 
community that do reflect the traditional nature," Sheetz 
said. 

Dr. Beall issued the challenge. The challenge has been 
answered by two obviously gifted young men. 

Sheetz and Bradfield — it's your move!

Teams Set for Oglethorpe 
Invitational Tourney 



Delta State College, Pfeiffer College, 
and Belmont College will join the 
Oglethorpe Stormy Petrels as partici- 
pants in the Oglethorpe Invitational 
Tournament on December 20 and 21. 

The announcement of the tourney 
teams was made by Garland Pinholster, 
Oglethorpe athletic director and coach 
of the Petrels. 

Sporting the best record from last 
season is Belmont from Nashville, 
Tenn. The Rebels rang down the cur- 
tain with a 21-7 won-lost record. The 
Volunteer Athletic State Conference 
members are coached by Wayne 
Dobbs, a Petrel graduate of 1961. 

Pfeiffer College, from Misenheimer, 
N. C, has no record about which one 
would blush. Francis Essie's Falcons 
won twenty while losing only nine 
games during the last campaign. 

Delta State College is located in 
Cleveland, Miss., and last year they 
won eleven games out of eighteen. The 
Statesmen are coached by James Mur- 
rell who has a 3 year lifetime record 
of 40 wins and 25 setbacks. 

The Stormy Petrels lost the final 
game of last year's tournament to Bel- 
larmine, 65-64. Prior to this defeat, 
Oglethorpe had won the title for four 
straight years. The Petrels had a lack- 
lustre 11-12 record last season, but 
with several returnees plus a few bright 
freshmen prospects, the Petrels hope to 
improve their mediocre showing of last 
year. 

Since assuming the reins at Ogle- 
thorpe in 1956, Pinholster has amassed 
a glowing 158 wins against 61 losses.

Coach Friday Named Honorary Coach 



Coach Friday has been added to the 
Petrel basketball coaching staff. The 
famous Channel 5 (WAGA-TV) foot- 
ball prognosticator was named an 
honorary coach at ceremonies during 
the Petrel's press day on October 14. 
Coach Garland Pinholster made the 
formal presentation in front of a 
smiling band of Oglethorpe basket- 
bailers and representatives of all of At- 
lanta's press, radio and television 
corps. 



Coach Friday, who answers pro- 
fessionally to Jane Steppe was similarly 
honored last year by Slippery Rock 
College in Pennsylvania, who made 
her an honorary football coach. Ogle- 
thorpe becomes the first to give her the 
basketball honor. 

The charming new coach immedi- 
ately went into action by drilling the 
Petrel troops. The players said that her 
passes were the greatest. 




Oglethorpe to Play 
Puerto Rican Olympic 
Team in February 

Oglethorpe College will play the 
Puerto Rico Olympic team on Febru- 
ary 23 at Oglethorpe Field House. 

The contest will be of an exhibition 
nature since it will not count as an 
NCAA game for Oglethorpe. 

The Puerto Ricans placed fourth in 
the overall basketball standings at the 
1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo. Lou 
Rossini, New York University coach, 
mastcrminder the Puerto Rico team in 
Tokyo and has worked with them dur- 
ing the summer months this past year. 

Jerry Shipp of the Phillip's Oilers, 
who was one of the stars on the 1964 
U.S. squad, says that the Puerto Rican 
club gave the United States champs 
more trouble than any other team in 
the Olympics. "They led us for almost 
three-quarters of the game," Shipp re- 
lated, "and although the final score of 
62-42 looks as if we clobbered them, it 
wasn't true. We caught fire in the last 
few minutes and won going away." 
Shipp says the Puerto Ricans are strong 
on the boards, are good shooters, and 
excellent ball handlers. According to 
Shipp, "their outstanding weakness is 
bench strength." 

Oglethorpe Coach Garland Pin- 
holster is also familiar with the Puerto 
Rican team. He was coach of the 1963 
squad in the Pan-American games that 
played the Puerto Ricans. The Petrel 
coach said the pattern of that game 
was almost identical to the Oympic 
contest. "We won by the same point 
spread," says Coach Pinholster, "and 
trailed until late in the game." Pin- 
holster also says that the Puerto Rican 
aggregation is much stronger than the 
Peru Olympic squad that the Petrels 
trounced 89-66 in Atlanta two years 
ago. 



THE CEREMONY 

Coach Friday is made an Honorary 
Coach by Coach Pinholster as the 
squad looks on. (That's Coach Pin- 
holster on the right.)
