Beall Elected President 

Dr. Paul R. Beall, of Annapolis, Maryland, educator and nationally-known 
management consultant to aerospace industries, has been elected president of 
Oglethorpe University in Atlanta, Georgia. 

Election of Dr. Beall by the Oglethorpe board of trustees was announced 
by Virgil W. Milton, board chairman. 

He succeeds Dr. Donald Agnew, who resigned in February to head a major 
foundation project in college and secondary school education. 

Dr. Beall assumed his duties as president of the 49-year-old institution 
October 1. In the interim Dean George C. Seward has served as acting president. 

Mr. Milton said a special committee of trustees and faculty members has 
spent the last six months searching for a new Oglethorpe president. 

"We have interviewed a number of persons," Mr. Milton said. "We are 
confident that we have found exactly the right man. He will lead Oglethorpe 
through an important expansion program that will include a number of new 
buildings and an increase in the student body from its present 450 to approxi- 
mately 1,000." 

Dr. Beall is a native of Des Moines, 
Iowa. He was graduated from Grinnell 
College in 1932 with an AB degree in 
economics. He studied law at Harvard 
University in 1935-36, and received an 
MA degree in speech and speech sci- 
ence from the University of Michigan 
in 1940. 

He received a Ph.D. in speech and 
English from Pennsylvania State Uni- 
versity in 1948. 

He taught speech and English at the 
University of Michigan 1939-41 and at 
Pennsylvania State University 1941-50. 

In 1950, Dr. Beall became director 
of information for the Research and 
Development Board of the Defense De- 
partment, Washington, D. C., and in 
1952 served as scientific advisor to the 
commanding general of Air Research 
and Development Command of the 
U. S. Air Force in Baltimore. On a 
number of other occasions he has 
served as scientific advisor to various 
air force commands in this country and 

He was advisor to the original faculty 
group that established the U. S. Air 
Force Academy. 

Since 1960 Dr. Beall has served as 
management consultant on oral and 
written presentations for numerous 
firms in the aerospace industry. 

His current clients include Lockheed 
Aircraft Corporation, the Martin-Mari- 
etta Company, Westinghouse Electric 
Corporation, the General Precision 
Company and the Allison Division of 
General Motors. 

He is a past president of the Na- 
tional Conference on Administration 
of Research, a member of several pro- 
fessional societies and of the Cosmos 
Club, Washington, D. C. 

'I am enthusiastic about the challenge 
and the opportunity at Oglethorpe," 
said Dr. Beall. "Both industry and 
education have learned that the most 
important need for young people today 
is to learn how to live a good life — not 
merely how to make a good living. 
Oglethorpe has pioneered in this field, 
and its contributions are now being 

Or. Paul R. Beall 

recognized throughout the educational 
world." He said the first steps in the 
expansion of the college will be the 
building of a new library, a new science 
building and two dormitories in order 
to provide facilities for a student body 
approximately twice as large as the 
present one.

Take Advantage 
of Your Advantages 

As a reminder, Oglethorpe Univer- 
sity's women graduates are now eligible 
for membership in the American Asso- 
ciation of University Women. 

This organization was founded to in- 
crease educational opportunities for 
women and to enlarge the fields where 
these women could put their training to 
use. Today with over 155,000 mem- 
bers and 1500 branches in the 50 
states, the District of Columbia and 
Guam, they still pursue their original 
purpose. Because of their number and 
work, they speak representatively for 
the American woman university or 
college graduate. 

For further information concerning 
this organization, Atlanta residents 
should contact Mrs. J. F. Anderson, 
6533 Cherrytree Lane, N. E., Atlanta, 
Georgia. Alumae residing out of At- 
lanta and out of state should contact 
their area representative. 

A Summary of Alumni Giving Since 1956 

AMOUNT (including 



in-kind gifts) 


















$24,977.00 (683 donors: 1 large gift) 



$28,780.00 (976 donors: 2 large gifts plus 

1 auto) 3420 

1962-63 # 

$24,352.00 (760 donors: auto) 



$22,099.00 (913 donors) 





*In these two years, large donations were contributed but due to circumstances of the indi- 
viduals involved the donations were not repeated in subsequent years. 

#In these two years automobiles were donated to the college by alumni which increased the 
in-kind gift total for the year. 

In 1960 the pledge envelope system was introduced in the alumni giving 
campaign and as evidenced by the increase in the amount donated certainly 
warrants its continued use. This system replaces the dues idea which was a limit- 
ing element in the amount of contributions which could be expected to the college. 

In 1963 a concentrated effort was made to locate the alumni who for one 
reason or other had become "lost". As a result of this, the alumni mailing list 
has been increased by about 1000 new names. 

1963-64. Although the total donated to the college was not as much as the 
previous thre'e years, (see * and # above and excluding the large gifts) more 
was contributed by the alumni than ever before. 

The President's 


Mainstream of 



"The woods are lovely, dark, and 
deep, but I have promises to keep, 
and miles to go before I sleep." 

Robert Frost Wrote . . . 

School spirit is something that can 
make a difference in the life of an edu- 
cation institution. Through the years, 
Oglethorpe University has maintained 
an active "school spirit." 

In more recent years. Coach Pin- 
holster and former Booster Club Presi- 
dent Steve Schmidt has built upon 
Oglethorpe's "school spirit" of the 20's 
and 30's. Renewed interest in athletics 
and college financial support has been 
a direct result of their efforts. All 
alumni should be appreciative to them 
for their endeavor in building "school 
spirit" among students and alumni. 

Our school spirit must continue to 
carry over into all phases of the life of 
the college. Alumni are to be congrat- 
ulated upon responding to a call for 
financial support last year by the great- 
est number of individual contributions 
in a number of years. This is an indica- 
tion of continuing "school spirit." 

Oglethorpe University has earned a 
place at the "top of the ladder" in aca- 
demic achievement. We have risen to 
the peak in athletics among the small 
colleges. We will continue to have suc- 
cess as long as Oglethorpe Alumni con- 
tinue their "school spirit." 

We have "miles to go before . . . 
sleep" in building a college second to 
none. The mainstream of American 
Education is a strong and vital force in 
world leadership. We have "promises to 
keep." Let us all strive for excellance 
in education. Our "school spirit for 
Oglethorpe can do much for contribut- 
ing to a better world of tomorrow 
through developing leaders in all fields 
to meet the promises made to a chang- 
ing complex world. Your "school spirit" 
is vital ! We need more of it !

Fall 1964

A few days ago while trying to catch 
my breath after a game of "pitch" with 
my five year old, I asked him, what, in 
addition to a fireman and bulldozer 
operator, he wanted to be when he 
grew up. His reply was that he wanted 
to be a doctor. While contemplating 
this reply many things came to mind. 
Among other things I thought of where 
he should get the training for such a 
career. It took no budding genius to 
think of Oglethorpe as the place for 
pre-medical training. But then, I asked 
myself, 'why Oglethorpe"? There are 
as many answers to this question as 
there are alumni. I personally feel that 
the type of education offered there 
cannot be equalled anywhere. This is 
so because few institutions attempt to 
gi\e the student the all round approach 
found there. And moreover, few insti- 
tutions can give it because most do not 
have the intent, the academic freedom 
or the overall atmosphere to allow it. 
Something else too — they do not have 
an Abbott, a Cressy, a Goslin or a 
Seward to provide it to the students. 

As my thoughts rambled on, I won- 
dered if there would be an Oglethorpe 
for my son to attend when he became a 
young man. I came to the conclusion 
that there may not be unless its chal- 
lenges and needs on all fronts are 
thoroughly met. I know the faculty and 
administration will meet their chal- 
lenges if they are given the tools to do 
so. One of these tools is staunch finan- 
cial support from alumni and friends. 
I know we, her alumni, can and will 
meet our part of the need if we will 
stop to think what the word Oglethorpe 
means to us. 

I pledge to meet part of our chal- 
lenge to preserve the "Oglethorpe 
Idea"! Will you do likewise when the 
opportunity is presented in the very 
near future?

Oglethorpe Sports 

Oglethorpe University sports began 
in full swing as October ushered in 
Autumn. Soccer took the headline as 
the 1964-65 opening competitive sport 
and basketball practice officially began 
on October 15. 

In soccer, Coach Billy Carter has 
organized what is expected to be his 
finest team in the four years of the 
sport's existence. Returning eight let- 
termen from last season's 1-7-2 record, 
the Stormy Petrels were able to assem- 
ble 23 men for the total squad, a fact 
that Coach Carter finds comforting. 

"Until this year," Carter emphasized, 
"we only had 12 or 13 men report for 
soccer, and it was difficult forming a 
representative team. But with 23 men, 
we have ample substitutes and the team 
has been greatly strengthened. Too, 
having eight men back from last year 
gives us a pretty good core to work 

The returnees are Roy Cowart, Ed 
Daffin, Jack Grubb, Ben Hargrove, Jeff 
Hayden, Andy Holland, Tim Marx, 
Pete Outhwaite, Robert Richards and 
Glen Rose. 

Oglethorpe's soccer opponents are 
among the finest in the South and in- 
clude Emory University, Emory-at- 
Oxford, Belmont Abbey, Berry, St. 
Bernard, Furman University and 
Davidson. With the exception of David- 
son, Furman and Belmont Abbey, the 
Petrels were to meet each team twice. 

In the season's first two games, Ogle- 
thorpe fell in defeat — a 2-1 margin by 
St. Bernard and an 8-0 blanking by 

"From the first two games it may 
sound as though we're in for a rough 
time," Carter explained. "But those are 
two of the toughest teams we'll face. We 
feel certain we'll be able to win four or 
five this year." 

Hargrove, a baseball veteran, is in 
his fourth year as a soccer regular and 
serves as captain and spiritual leader 
of the Petrels. A center-forward, he 
scored O.U.'s only points in the first 
two games. 

The addition of two foreign students, 
both formally exposed to soccer in 
their native lands, has boosted the 
power of the team. Miguel Rivarola, 
who plays wing, is from Paraguay, and 
Michael Streicher, also a wing, hails 
from Germany. 

In basketball. Coach Garland Pin- 
holster faces the 1964-65 season with 
only five men back from last year, but 

the new faces add a sparkle that could 
turn into a highly successful glow. 

Back are guard Ray Thomas, who is 
the pulse-beat of the club, guard Bill 
Garrigan, center Walker Heard, center 
Jimbo Hartlage, and forward Billy 
Parker. All have seen extensive service 
and are well-versed in the Oglethorpe 

But the addition of transfer guard 
Wayne Johnson (Headland High 
School, via Young Harris College) and 
ex-Georgia Tech center Jimmy Tumlin 
has strengthened the gaps of gradua- 
tion. Johnson, a 5-9 playmaker, exhibits 
the drive and leadership that should 
make him a Petrel favorite, and Tumlin, 
a 6-6, 220-pounder, has the potential 
to be a superior athlete. 

Yet, there is another bright note — 
the freshmen. Coach Pinholster has at- 
tracted six men who could greatly en- 
hance the future of basketball on the 
O.U. campus. 

From Georgia, the Petrels landed 
guard Doug Alexander (6-1) from 
Cross Keys High School; guard Jimmy 
Fain (6-0) from Decatur, and guard 
Roger Dodgen (5-9) from South Cobb. 
All were superior high school athletes 
and played on three of the state's finest 

Also on the freshman roster are two 
high school classmates from Albion, 
111., one of the top teams in Illinois. 
The two are forward Jerry Sams (6-4) 
and forward Bill Carson (6-4). The 
other out-of-state signee is guard Roger 
Littell (6-1) from Osgood, Ind. 

Thus far Coach Pinholster has sched- 
uled 21 regular season games, opening 
on December 2 at Oglethorpe against 
Piedmont. The annual Christmas Invi- 
tational Tournament at Oglethorpe will

"We have a lot of hope and enthu- 
siasm for this year's team," Pinholster 
said. "Of course, we have to work 
them as units before we can tell really 
what we have. But we think it could be 
a fine squad. 

"We'll probably change our attack 
a little to fit the personnel," he con- 
tinued. "We know what our returning 
boys can do and we'll work the others 
in for the best possible effect. Right 
now, I believe it'll be an exciting team 
to watch, one of the best for the fans 
that we've had here."
