Alumni Association introduced Dr. 
Agnew who spoke briefly about the

in the University into activity in get- 
ting us new contacts with good stu-

SWEEP OPPONENTS 14-0 

(Story below written at earlier date. Full basketball summary will appear in 
next issue of The Flying Petrel) 
The high flying Stormy Petrels of Oglethorpe University can be likened 
this year to an irrestible force. They have swept away every opponent to 
date, but one, and that defeat came when only six men could play to an 
ineligibility techniality. The record at this writing with one game to play stands at 
20 contests won and one game lost. 

(Petrels won last game, Monday, February 23.) 
Coach Garland Pinholster has fused forward, sank 28 points while playing 

pivot. The night before PC downed 
Mercer"s Bears 



seven new men with three returning 
lettermen into a tightly knit, highly 
trained unit that has earned the number 
one rating in the nation for team de- 
fense over 450 reporting small col- 
leges. They have allowed their oppo- 
nents only 41.9 points per game, while 
they averaged 58. This feat seems all 
the more amazing when it is pointed 
out that only one letterman, Billy 
Carter, made the starting five, and the 
new men had never played ball to- 
gether before. 

The Petrels swept the Georgia Inter- 
collegiate Conference 14-0 for a per- 
fect record and the first trophy of the 
newly formed conference. Oglethorpe 
is seeded first in the GIAC tournament 
to be held in LaGrange from February 
26 to February 28. 

Perhaps the outstanding effort of 
the season in point of spirit came 
during the homecoming game with 
Presbyterian College. The Petrels were 
forced to play with six men due to the 
aforementioned technicality. The Birds 
won 59-55 before more than 600 roar- 
ing fans. They had no regular center 
in the game and one starting forward. 
Freshman Jay Rowland, 6" 1" guard- 



The Birds played Mercer"s Bears 
Monday, February 23 in the final regu- 
lar game of the season. Coach Pin- 
holster summed up the success of his 
team in these words: "The boys com- 
prising our squad must receive the 
lion"s share of credit. However the 
success story of the Petrels is a story 
written in part by everyone connected 
with O.U. A big chapter in this story 
has been provided by Dr. Agnew and 
the administration. A big chapter was 
written by Steve Schmidt and the 
"Boosters". The 'pep" band, cheer- 
leaders,, scorers, timers, managers, etc. 
are vital to the Petrels" efforts. Truly, 
the Petrels represent a team of all 
those who are loyal to Oglethorpe." 



Teacher's Group Meets At O. U. 

Atlanta teachers, members of the 
Association for Childhood Education, 
spent Saturday, October 25 on the 
Oglethorpe campus. The topic. "The 
Outdoors as a Classroom"", included 
an outdoor classroom, field trips, and 
special interest groups headed by Mrs. 
Annie Sue Brown, curriculum special- 
ist in science with the Atlanta Public 
Schools.

O. U. Gets Electron Microscope 

Oglethorpe University now has a 
$12,000 electron microscope which 
can magnify specimens up to 100.000 
times life size. The microscope, which 
was obtained through a grant from the 
National Science Foundation as a re- 
sult of a project carried on by Dr. 
Arthur Cohen, is in the Neill Meier 
Memorial Laboratory in Faith Hall. 

Dr. Cohen, professor of Biology, is 
using the instrument primarily for re- 
search in continuing his study of de- 
velopment in lower organism. The 
microscope will allow Dr. Cohen and 
his associates to study characteristics 
of organisms which they would be un- 
able to study with ordinary micro- 
scopes. 

Robin Wynn "61 and Joe Alexander 
"60 recently took a one week course 
in electron microscopy at Mount Ver- 
non, New York. Dr. Cohen and the 
two students brought the microscope, 
which weighs 7.S0 pounds, from Mount 
Vernon to Oglethorpe in Dr. Cohen's 
Volkswagen station wagon. 

Oglethorpe University is one of a 
handful of undergraduate schools in 
the country which houses an electron 
microscope.

BOAR'S HEAD 

Five new members were initiated 
into the Boar's Head Honorary Frater- 
nity on December 12 at the fifteenth 
annual Boar's Head Christmas Cere- 
mony in the Great Hall of Phoebe 
Hearst. The five students are Joe Alex- 
ander, Columbus, Ga.; Lee Barrett, 
Dallas. Ga.; Joe Duckworth, Albion, 
Mich.; James Griffin, Atlanta; and 
Robert Loftin of Montgomery, Ala. 
Jack Etheridge of Atlanta is president 
of the organization, and Joe Green of 
Forest Park, Ga. is vice president. 

A musical program, under the direc- 
tion of Mr. Ralph Lawton, guest tea- 
cher and director of the Chorus fol- 
lowed the initiation. Included were 
selections by the Chorus; a quartet 
composed of Raymt>nd Toubman, Oli- 
via Toubman, Julia Cohen, and Ethel 
Oldfield; and an instrumental ensemble 
with the quartet and Wendell Brown. 
George Seward, and Ralph Lawton. 
Solos were sung by Sandra Ellenburg, 
a sophomore from Atlanta and Ogle- 
thorpe Professor of Psychology, Rich- 
ard Maier. 

Faculty children who carried the 
boar's head this year are Gary Abbott, 
Tommy Bonhorst, Philip Cohen, and 
Freddie Daugert. Dr. A. Cheever Cres- 
sy, Jr. is advisor for the fraternity. 

The Boar's Head Ceremony, the 
traditional pre-Christnias program in 
several colleges in this country, was 
begun at Queens College, Oxford, Eng- 
land in the 19th century. However, the 
ceremony at Oglethorpe is derived di- 
rectly from General Oglethorpe's coat- 
of-arms on which are three boars' 
heads representing strength, courage, 
and vigor. 

The night before the Boar's Head 
Ceremony. December 11, the Atlanta 
Woodwind Quintet, composed of five 
of the better musicians from the At- 
lanta Symphony Orchestra, gave a con- 
cert of chamber music in the Great 
Hall. The program was made possible 
through a grant from the National Mu- 
sic Performance Trust Fund with the 
cooperation of the Atlanta Chapter of 
the American Federation of Musicians 
and was sponsored by the Lyceum 
Committee of Oglethorpe University. 

An outstanding program consisting 
of selections from Beethoven, Haydn, 
Elsa Barraine, Colomer, Szalowski, 
and Ibert was presented. Members of 
the Quintet are Natalie Kruger, flute; 
Raymond Toubman, oboe; Karl Bev- 
ins, clarinet; Daniel Dowdakin, bas- 
soon; and Elwood White, French Horn.

DR. PETERS RECOUNTS 
HISTORY OF CRYPT 

Dr. T. K. Peters, archivist for the 
Crypt of Civilization at Oglethorpe 
University, believes that a new crypt 
should be assembled. 

At a speech at Oglethorpe in Octo- 
ber, Dr. Peters said that "mankind has 
made more startling advances during 
the past seventeen years than in the 
entire 6,000 years of recorded history 
that preceded 1940." 

The Crypt, which was begun in 
1935, took five years to complete. To 
be opened in the year 8113, it is the 
"only complete record of a complete 
generation in 6,000 years," according 
to Dr. Peters. 

It contains records of all knowledge 
possessed by the world up to the year 
1940. It contains 960,000 pages of 
reading matter on microfilm, including 
great books written to that time. Bibles 
of every religion are on microfilm. It 
also holds typewriters, telephones, mu- 
sical instruments, writing materials, and 
recordings of the voices of the great 
rulers of that time. In case the English 
language should be forgotten, there are 
800 basic words with pictures and 
sound. 

Descriptions of the Crypt and its 
location were written in all major 
languages and were sent to every im- 
portant library and University in the 
world. Laminated rag paper was used. 
Through investigation. Dr. Peters 
learned that rag paper has been found 
in good condition after more than 
4,000 years. With improvements and 
lamination there is an excellent chance 
that the descriptions will be readable 
in 6,000 years. Before he came to 
Oglethorpe in 1935 as archivist and 
faculty member. Dr. Peters made five 
expeditions around the world, studying 
past civilizations and doing research on 
rare gases. He invented the first com- 
mercial rare gas tubes, many vacuum 
and rare gas devices, and the first 
microfilm camera. 

3 FACULTY DEDICATE SCHOOLS 

On October 26, Dr. Donald C. 
Agnew. President of Oglethorpe, was 
the featured speaker at the dedication 
ceremonies for Briarcliff High School, 
one of the DeKalb School System's 
sixteen new schools. Dr. Bohnhorst 
represented Oglethorpe at Laurel Ridge 
School and Mr. Goslin at the Oak 
Ridge School.

H Day Set For Saturday May 9 

Preparations have already begun for 
Homecoming Day, Saturday, May 9. 

During tiie past two Homecomings 
attendance has approximately doubled 
that of the year before. If this trend 
continues, some 400 alumni will re- 
new friendships and see the progress 
being made at Ogletiiorpe this year. 

Your executive connnittee wishes 
that a special effort to attend will be 
made by those alumni whose classes 
end in "4" and "9"". 

A gala program, including dinner 
as guests of the L'niversitv is being 
planned for you. Mark the date on 
your calendar now — we will see you 
on May 9. 

Dr. Agnew Receives Award 

President Donald C. Agnew of Ogle- 
thorpe University recently received an 
"Award of Distinguished Citizenship" 
from the citizens of Denver, Colorado. 
Dr. Agnew is a native of Denver. 

The award, which Dr. Agnew re- 
ceived in absentia, was presented by 
the Mayor of Denver in connection 
with the Centennial Celebration of the 
City of Denver held on October 29. 

In 1925 Dr. Agnew came to Ogle- 
thorpe as Chairman of the Department 
of Community Service. In \955 he be- 
came Executive Secretary of the Com- 
mission on Colleges and Universities, 
Southern Association of Colleges and 
Secondary Schools, the regional ac- 
crediting agency for schools and col- 
leges in the Southeastern area. Last 
January he returned to Oglethorpe as 
President. 

Dr. Agnew graduated from Park 
College in Parkville, Mississippi, and 
received his M.A. and Ph.D degrees 
from Duke University. Before coming 
to Atlanta, he was president of Coker 

January, 1959 



'^(E BARBARA BAUGHMAN O. U. Sopho 
more, was first runner-up in recent "Miss 
White Columns" contest which was part oi the 
10th birthday celebration ol WSBTV. 



SANDRA ELLENBURG, also a Sopho- J*" 
more, won the title of "Miss Congeniality in 
the 1958 Miss Atlanta contest. 



Oglethorpe Year In France 

A plan for a year of study abroad 
for qualified juniors, to be known as 
the Oglethorpe Year in France, has 
been approved by the faculty of Ogle- 
thorpe University. Under this plan 
students who are interested can spend 
their junior year at the University of 
Besancon. 

Dr. Arthur Bieler, professor of 
modern languages and chairman of 
the Oglethorpe Planning Committee, 
has made the arrangements with the 
French University through Dr. Ber- 
nard Quemada, Director of the Insti- 
tute of Languages and Civilization. 
Dr. Ouemada, who is a personal friend 
and former teacher of Dr. Bieler, has 
developed what is probably the most 
up-to-date language laboratory in the 
world. 

The University of Besancon is one 
of the smaller universities in the French 
system. This fact enables it to stress 
student-teacher relations. Besancon is 
an ancient French city located in the 
eastern part of France near Geneva 
and is about a five hour drive from 
Paris. 

Dr. Bieler said that theoretically the 
plan could go into operation next year 
but that it would probably be the year 
after before any students would be 
ready to go. The expenses for the 
whole year, including transportation, 
will be about equal to those of one 
year at Oglethorpe. 

College in Hartsville, South Carolina. 
Dr. Agnew has also served as a con- 
sultant for many colleges in the South. 
On October 28, Dr. Agnew received 
WSB Radio's "750 Award" on the 
11:00 P.M. news broadcast.

Vice— President George C. Seward at- 
tended t he annual meeting of the 
Southern Association of Colleges and 
Secondary Schools in Louisville, Ken-

the former Executive Secretary of the 
Commission on Colleges and Universi- 
ties of the Association, and is presently

STORMY PETREL MEANS 
ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE, TOO 

I'he members nl the top defensive 
team among the nations small colleges 
have a good chance to become the top 
offensive unit, ttx) — schoiastically 
speaking. 

Mrs. Marjorie MacC'onnell. regis- 
trar, announced that the team's acade- 
mic averaee for the fall c|uarter was 
85.35. 

Leading scorer for the Birds is 
sophomore guard, Wayne Dobbs, who 
is clipping his courses for a 91 average. 
He is followed closely, at MO, by fresh- 
man Jay Rowland, perhaps the most 
versatile member of the squad. Al- 
though his usual position is guard. Jay 
has played all positions this year and 
scored 28 points playing center in the 
Petrels win against Presbyterian Col- 
lege. 

Billy Carter, the senior guard who 
only knows how to play one speed — 
full speed — is third with a 88.5. Coach 
Pinhoster has said he feels he has six 
men playing defense when Billy is in 
the game. 

Every one of the remaining Petrels 
averaged 80 or better. Sophomore for- 
ward Roger Couch, 86.25; Senior for- 
ward Frankie Lentz, 86.0; Sophomore 
center Sammy Hudgins. 84.75; Junior 
center Jay Dye, 82.6; Senior forward 
Pat Steohens, 81.6; and lunior guard 
Joe Sewell. 80.0

The Flying Petrel 



REMINISCING WITH THE 
WENDELL BROWNS 

Lord and Lady Oglethorpe 

With Oglethorpe Day upon us and 
its college dance at which Lord and 
Lady Oglethorpe are crowned, it is 
interesting to look hack upon the 
start of this annual event fourteen 
years ago in May. 

At this time, as a sort of May 
Queen, the beautiful Rusty Hogan "49 
was chosen Miss O. U. and crowned 
at a fish fry at Lake Phoebe. There was 
no male partner, although all the Ogle- 
thorpe men were willing. The next 
school year (Dec. 1945) a King and 
Queen in the persons of Bettv Rae 
Olds (Villegas) "49 and James O. 
Stephens "48 were chosen by popular 
vote, the runners-up forming the at- 
tendant court. They were presented in 
the Great Hall preceding the Christ- 
mas Formal. 

It was at this ceremony that the 
Men's Free Press, the hustling but 
short-lived rival of the Stormy Pelrel, 
editor Charles Weltner "48, in order 
to scoop the competition, had printed 
and ready two papers each with a 
story about one of the two competing 
couples. The proper extra was "on the 
street" before the crowd has stopped 
applauding the announcement of the 
winners. 

In 1947 the present scheme of 
things was initiated. The popular can- 
didates were to be announced and 
crowned at a dance known as the Lord 
and Lady Oglethorpe Bail in honor of 
the new titles given the winners, iield 
on the week-end nearest Oglethorpe 
(Georgia) Day, February 12. Again 
Charles Weltner had his share in things 
by designing the hand-tooled leather 
crowns, gaily colored and studded with 
"genuwine jools"" that are still in use. 
The first Lord and Lady to wear the 
crowns and lead off for the years to 
come were Joe Brov.'n "49 and the 
late Frances Stribling (Fancher) "49.
