Forward Oglethorpe Fund Over $19,000 

The Class of 1940 with 27 donors is outstripping all others in total number 
of contributors to the Forward Oglethorpe Fund. It is followed by the Class of 
1953 with 19 donors, a tie for third with 18 each between the Class of 1939 
and 1954, and fourth place with 17 
by last years winners the Class of May 13 
1958. 



Seventeen classes with 10 to 15 
donors are bunched behind the lead- 
ers. They all add up to 452 donors 
who have contributed a record S19,- 
202.07, and there are still eight months 
remaining in this fiscal year. 

Some 400 alumni who have con- 
tributed at least once during the last 
four years have not given during the 
present campaign. If they were to give 
again this year, our percentage of 
alumni donors would top that of 
Emory University, and Emory is in 
its twelfth year of a unified alumni 
loyalty fund. 

While total gifts are at a record, we 
are still about $7,800 short of our 
minimum goal of S27,000. Several 
substantial gifts will probably be 
needed to reach our goal, but many 
alumni pitching in with ten, five and 
one dollars will help a great deal 
toward closing the gap. Equally im- 
portant, each gift received, regardless 
of the amount, raises our alumni giv- 
ing to a more significant percentage. 

We need your help. Write your 
check today for a greater Oglethorpe.

O. K. Sheffield, president of the 
National Alumni Assn., announced 
that Alumni Day will be held on Sat- 
urday, May 13. 

Plans for the gala event are not 
completed. Among the attractions will 
be a rifle match, baseball game with 
the Citadel, a play, and a delicious 
complimentary buffet dinner. 

Alumni Assn. and Booster Club 
officers for the coming year will be 
elected and awards will be presented 
to representatives of classes which have 
led in the support of the Oglethorpe 
program. 

A traditional feature of Booster 
Club meetings has been the showing 
of a film of an outstanding Petrel 
basketball game. 

This will be the twentv-fifth anni- 
versary of the Class of 1936. We hope 
its members will make a special effort 
to attend.

A MESSAGE FROM 
YOUR PRESIDENT 

As this issue of The Flying Petrel 

reaches you, over one-half of this 
Administration's term will have been 
completed. As you know, the FOR- 
WARD OGLETHORPE FUND Drive 
(a united Alumni and Booster Club 
effort) has been "The Project of the 
Year." We are most grateful that at 
this time almost $20,000 of the 
327,000 goal has been raised. 

Of equal importance is the number 
of alumni who give their financial 
support to their Alma Mater. Last 
year we had 350 alumni who con- 
tributed. Thus far over 450 have 
pledged their support which is a step 
in the right direction, but there should 
be at least 600 of us this year who 
would be glad to lend their support 
whether it is SI 00 or Sl.OO — so, 
please talk to your friends who are 
alumni, and ask that they show their 
interest in their school by helping at 
this time. 

In addition to The Drive and our 
annual Fall Dinner-Dance, a commit- 
tee chaired by Phil Hildreth "34 is 
busy completing plans for a breakfast 
for teachers who are alumni. It will 
be held on March 24 during the Geor- 
gia Education Association Meetings in 
Atlanta. This should be quite an im- 
pressive affair. 

It is my sincere wish that each of 
you could visit the Oglethorpe Campus 
in order that you could feel the en- 
thusiam which dominates everyone and 
everything. Moral is probably at an 
all time high. It is a real thrill to 
attend the basketball games in our new 
Field House, not only to see our ex- 
cellent team in action, but also to 
watch the cheering crowds, the en- 
thusiastic cheerleaders, and hear the 
student band, "The Saints". 

Once again I urge each of you to 
renew your interest in our Alma Mater, 
and make your faith known through 
vour support to the FORWARD 
OGLETHORPE FUND Drive. 

See you in May? 

Sincerely, 

O. K. Sheffield, Jr., President 
National Alumni Association 
Oglethorpe University 



ALUMNI ATTRACT 
UNSOLICITED GIFTS 

Two gifts, totalling S350, have been 
received recently from corporations. 
The largest gift of S300 was given by 
the Gulf Oil Corporation, and a fifty 
dollar gift was donated by the House- 
hold Finance Co. 

Oglethorpe has received several 
corporate gifts this year. These two 
are significant because they were un- 
solicited. 

Of special interest to the alumni is 
the fact that the size of the gifts are 
determined by a formula which uses 
the percentage of contributing alumni 
and the amount of alumni contribu- 
tions relative to the size of our student 
body. 

We have received gifts from these 
firms for three years. The size of the 
gifts this year were determined by 
alumni giving last year. Next year, un- 
solicited gifts will be larger because 
Oglethorpe's alumni are supporting 
their alma mater this year in record 
numbers and amounts. 

When the Need Arises 

. . . help yourself and Oglethorpe ath- 
letics by using the following three co- 
operating business firms. 

Oglethorpe now has an agreement 
with Global Van Lines for your mov- 
ing needs. In Atlanta, the Global agent 
is Cherry Transfer & Storage Com- 
pany, MUrray 8-6660. 

Your move may originate and end 
almost anywhere in the world. Simply 
tell your local agent "This is an Ogle- 
thorpe Move", and notify the alumni 
office. Several hundred dollars have 
been received as a result of Oglethorpe 
moves. 

Covington Auto Service a franchised 
Ford dealer twenty-five miles east of 
Atlanta, will help the cause. When 
you buy a new or late model used car 
or truck tell them it's an "Oglethorpe 
Car ". If you see Wendell Crowe '25, 
say "Hey". 

Now is the time to line up Butt- 
rill Builders, Inc. for your new swim- 
ming pool. Call Jim Hinson '49 at 
me" 6-3730, and tell him you want 
to have an "Oglethorpe Pool" by 
swimming time. 

The above firms will offer their 
services to you at prices which are 
competive. 

Keep them in mind when you need 
a MOVE, a CAR, or a POOL.

The Flying Petrel 



Honor Roll of Investors 

Private business and industry sup- 
ported educational tree enterprise in 
Georgia with record gifts. In the year 
ending June 30, 1960, they gave the 
Ga. Foundation for Independent Col- 
leges 225 gifts totaling 5119,488.25. 

Oglethorpe is one of nine Georgia 
colleges which will benefit from those 
contributions. 

The underlying reason for most of 
tlie gifts can be summed up by M. E. 
Grant, president of the Plantation Pipe 
Line Co. 

Mr. Grant said, "Never before have 
such demands been placed on our 
colleges and universities to supply in- 
telligent and accomplished men and 
women to business and industry and 
to governments — national, state, and 
local. Our future as a nation is inti- 
mately linked to our solution of the 
educational problems confronting al- 
most every educational institution in 
the country. Many of these problems 
can only be solved through additional 
financial support. America's place in 
the world today demands a solution."

REMINISCING WITH THE 
WENDELL BROWNS 

This fall, Oglethorpe dedicated its 
new field house. Many students felt 
it was high time. They had been hear- 
ing talk all their academic hves about 
getting out of that undersized cellar, 
laughingly called a gymnasium, and 
not having to beg around at other 
schools to get a chance to play basket- 
ball on a regular sized floor. 

Few of us could remember, though, 
back beyond the undersized cellar, 
when there was no gymnasium at all. 
Oh, the old gym had been built into 
Lupton Hall (second part) all right, 
but in later years, with the wing of 
the medical school, it, as well as many 
other places around Oglethorpe, suf- 
fered with a new identity thrust upon 
them. 

The old gym was divided into two 
halves — horizontally. A floor swung 
from the balcony straight across to 
the other wall making two levels. The 
upper floor did fairly well as a biology 
laboratory. If it had no heat, at least 
it had windows. The lower floor, lec- 
ture rooms, had no heat, windows, or 
ventilators. Heaters and electric lights 
did their duty nobly, but not much 
could be said for the fans, which 
merely moved the same old tired air 
around from place to place. The lec- 
tuers could not have been as dry as 
some like to recall, for the moisture 
had worked the floor into fourteen 
inch waves. 

When we got the debris out of 
there and the floor relaid, the effort 
and the cost and the rejoicing made 
us feel that we had just built a new 
field house. 

A good many other fine features 
were left over from the medical school 
— piles of broken equipment in a 
room known as the physics lab., a bag 
of bones (human) in the basement of 
Lowry, one of which got Charles 
Weltner booted out of the Buckhead 
Theater, but in the words of Kipling 
that is another story, and what was 
found in the Gaertner house, then 
known as the Bloody Bucket dormi- 
tory, memory blanches to recollect. 

All of these are becoming dim in 
the dazzle of modern Oglethorpe, but 
students still go into the old gym, look 
high up on the wall behind a basket, 
and see a door with no approach lead- 
ing into a room that none of them 
has ever seen, a closet that is the last 
remnant and, to some of us, the last 
reminder of the biology lab once sus- 
pended in the upper air of the gym- 
nasium. 



BOOST THE PETRELS 



If you missed the Oglethorpe-Georgia Southern game you really missed 
the most important athletic event the Petrels have played in 30 years. (We won 
60-48) This game proved that we are really Major League. 

Come see our fine team, coached by our great coach in our beautiful new 
Field House. There are many good games left on our schedule. Bring your 
family and friends,

The Flying Petrel 



9^ 

Petrels Undefeated 

The Stormy Petrels enter the new 
year with a perfect slate — nine 
wins and no defeats. The key to the 
successful start may lie with "the com- 
ing of age" of sophomore Morris 
Mitchell. 

"Mitch", the 6"6" center, is the only 
tall man on the starting five, and he 
leads the squad in total points (81),* 
highest average points per game, 
(16.20), and in rebounds. 

The two forwards, as college ball 
goes, are short. Roger Couch is 6"2y2" 
and Buddy Goowdin is 6'V\ yet this 
trio has helped Oglethorpe control the 
backboards in every contest. Five 
game totals show Mitchell with 34 
rebounds, Couch 27 and Goodwin 25. 

Among the leaders is 5' 10" guard 
Tommy Norwood with 26 rebounds. 
Norwood is also the team's second 
highest point maker with 61. 

Rounding out the starting five is 
6'1" all-state guard Jay Rowland who 
is leading the team with a 62.5 field 
goal percentage. He has contributed 
19 rebounds. 

The Petrels have become known for 
their precision, ball-control kind of 
ball. While not seen as readily. Coach 
Garland Pinholster has worked equally 
hard on the player's psychological 
readiness for the season as well as for 
each game. 

Before each season, the team and 
Pinholster set as their goal what they 
feel would be reasonable for a seasons 
won-loss record. Last year they de- 
cided on an 18-5 record and actually 
bettered it with a 21-5 chart. This 
year they are on schedule toward a 
predicted undefeated season. 

Pinholster justifies the forecast by 
saying, "we're tired of talking about 
poor little Oglethorpe. When we walk 
on the floor it's nothing to nothing 
with everybody we play." He added, 
"about half of our toughness is a 
change of philosophy." 

Good bench strength has been sup- 
plied by 6'4" sophomore forward 
Bobby Nance. He has 22 rebounds 
and 6.8 points per game. Nance plays 
an average of less than half a game 
per outing.

Their opponents, who seldom get a

Hopes are high that Oglethorpe will
