21. '43. '57 IN LEAD - SO FAR 


The Forward Oglethorpe Fund is rolling along with SI5,324.3.S of this year's 
$38,500 goal in hand through November 30. 

Leading all the rest in the amount of gifts is the Class of '43 with S2.063.50. 
Champion last vear in total uifts for the entire campaiizn was the Class of '37 
with S6.794.50.' 

Total receipts for the 1960-61 drive 
were S24,977.39. That is the equivalent 
of a year's income from an endowment 
of S624.433.75 invested at 4 per cent. 
When the current Forward Oglethorpe 
Fund Goal is reached, the University 
\*/ill have the same income as that de- 
rived from S962,500 in endowment. 

You can determine the equivalent 
amount of endowment you give by 
multiplying your gift by 25. For ex- 
ample, if you contributed ten dollars, 
it would be the same as a gift to en- 
dowment of S250; if you gave SI 00, 
the endowment equivalent would be 
$2,500. So you can see how valuable 
each dollar you give is to Oglethorpe. 

The drive will continue until late 
summer, 1962, so there is plenty of 
time for some enterprising class to 
overtake the Class of "43. Other classes 
in the top five in amount of gifts are 
'40 with 51,811.50; '37, SI, 626. 50; 
'28, Sl,455.00; and '32, $1,202.50. 

The Class of '57 is in the forefront 
in number of donors with 21 persons 
contributing. Next comes '58 with 
19. Tied for third place with 15 each 
are the classes of '50 and '61. There 
is a triple tie for fourth place with 14 
each for '36, '39, and '54, and another 
tie for fifth with 1 3 donors each in '34 
and '40. 

The percentage of former students 
who have given to their Alma Mater 
in the present campaign reflects honor 
on the Class of '21. Twenty-two per 
cent of their number contributed. Next 
in line come '49, and '61 tied at 20 per 
cent. The Class of '58 is third with 19 

per cent; '20 is fourth with 17 per cent, 
and another triple tie at 16 per cent 
links the classes of '30, '36 and '57. 

Champions in percentage of donors 
in last year's effort were members of 
the Class of '20 with 36 per cent an- 
swering the call. Second was '30 with 
35 per cent and '50 was third with 32 
per cent. 

Through November 30, 367 donors 
have given in the current campaign. 
One hundred and twenty-one of these 
are new contributors — a significant 
figure indeed. More new givers and 
continuing support from regular con- 
tributors are needed. Ouota for the 
drive is 960 donors. So far. 38.23 per 
cent of the donor uoal has been reach-

(Continued from Page 1 ) 
In number of donors, the Class of 
'40 were champs last year with 36. The 
classes of '39 and '54 were second and 
third with 29 and 28 respectively. 

Heading the parade of investors 
last year in amount (in addition to top- 
flight '37) were the classes of '28 with 
$r,835 and '43 with 81,463.50. 
Is your class one of the leaders'.' 
We still have eight months to go on 
this campaign, but don't wait! We need 
your contribution now. If you cannot 
give at this time, send your pledge 
for future payment. 

The breadth of alumni support is 
of the gravest importance to a univer- 
sity when it asks big corporations and 
foundations for the sizeable contri- 
butions a growing institution must 
have. Among the first questions key 
men ask are, "What percentage of your 
alumni contribute? What are they 
willing to invest in the type of educa- 
tional program you offer?" 

As a result of last year's effort, Ogle- 
thorpe alumni support has penetrated 
the top half in national rankings of 
colleges in our category — up from 
the bottom quarter the year before. 
The achievement of our goal of 960 
donors will place us in the top ten per 
cent. And we will reach that rarefied 
atmosphere of top colleges if you add 
your investment in Oglethorpe for 
future generations of students. 



Good talk and good steaks marked 
the first planned meeting of the facul- 
ty and alumni at an on-campus dinner, 
November 6. 

Purpose of the gathering was to give 
the members of the two vital groups 
a chance to exchange views, to know 
one another better and to plan for 
Oglethorpe's future. 

The hard work being done by many 
aiunmi was emphasized and needs of 
the college were dramatically put for- 

The visiting grads learned that a 
large portion of the faculty, bread- 
winners of their families, have to take 
outside jobs to bolster their university 

Among other major needs at Ogle- 
thorpe at present are books, especially 
reference books — and additional li- 
brary space. The library is the pulsing 
heart of any university and attention 
to its shortcomings is of gravest im- 
portance in the opinion of the faculty. 

Dr. Stanley Daugert, professor of 
philosophy, delivered the princiob 
speech of the evening. He said the aim 
of Oglethorpe's curriculum is to gradu- 
ate persons with truly liberal educa- 

Howard Axelberg, president of the 
alumni association, was master of 
ceremonies and Dr. Donald C. Agnew, 
Oglethorpe president, welcomed the 
guests and introduced Dr. Daugert.

Thirty six years ago. Oglethorpe 
University graduated its finest class. 

Both Euls and Coeds were of the 
fighting caliber that makes good citi- 
zens. Not wealthv citizens, but good 
responsible men and women. 

Through the years, the Class of "25 
has been a recurring source of pride 
to 0,U, and we of "25 have remember- 
ed. Remembered the guys and gals we 
"checked"" with and who fought the 
battles of Routh, Sellers, Gaertner, 
Nick, Maxwell, Jacobs, Anderson, etc, 
with us. 

With pride and thanksgiving we 
remember, not so much what we uave 
O.U, but what 0,U. gave us. The "Un- 
iversity gave us an opportunity to know 
each other (a swell bunch of guys and 
gals if we do say so), to know the 
classes from "21 through "28. a chance 
for wider horizons and a set of clearer 
ideals and tools to turn hope into real- 

Of the 63 original members of "25, 
19 have gone to where all good Petrels 
go — finally. 

The balance of us, middle-aged

or bald or broad — or all of these 


Younger, less tough, less bald or 
grey, as follows; 

Although, as we gathered years we 
did not gather as much of the world's 
goods as our grandchildren wish we 
had. we did mellow and gain some 
understanding. So, we the Class of "25 
do challenge any and all classes from 
Sidney Lanier to next year to partici- 
pate in the alumni drive during "61 -'62. 
We diin't say we will give more, but 
more of us will give percentagewise 
than any other class!

Recently we have observed lliat the 
hedge running along the walk from 
Lupton to Phoebe lias been removed 
and planted in various other places 
around the campus. This is the latest 
act in our not always too happy at- 
tempt to improve things. But looking 
back over 17 years, we can observe 
an ever-increasing neatness and order. 

In 1944, Oglethorpe was not a part 
of Atlanta. We lived in the big woods 
with only Peachtree Road connecting 
us with civihzation. Ail around was 
forest with a few lanes leading here 
and there. The campus, neglected for 
some time, was woods too. One could 
get into Lupton or Phoebe without a 
safari, but Lowry lay in the trackless 
wilderness behind Poulet Hill. 

From time to time we made at- 
tempts to spruce things up. In our 
amateurish way we did what we could, 
which was largely quarreling about 
whether that hedge should come up 
or stay. We did get a gardener, a 
Scotsman who was to work for board 
and lodging until other work picked 
up. Well — he got board and lodging, 
and we still lived in the woods. Another 
"gardener" came and worked. He cut 
all shrubs under eight feet down to four 
feet and everything over eight feet had 
its branches cut up to four feet. This 
left somethings to be desired aesthe- 
tically but at least one could make his 
way around the front of the campus by 
crawling under branches. 

Then Atlanta came to Oglethorpe. 
Roads were made, apartments sprang 
up, business districts developed, and 
we became a city school. Hermance 
Drive, which used to cut through the 
campus, was traded to the univer- 
sity for an equal strip on the south- 
ern edge of our property. With this 
new road went the old name and it 
became Hermance Drive. The old road 
became a path, lately revived under 
the name of Luther Drive, serving the 
Field House. 

With all other things, we did manage 
to make improvements. Lowry is part 
of the campus. Faith is restored. 
Poulet Hill, alas, has fallen to bull- 
dozers; even the name is lost. 

And some people even feel good 
about the hedge. At least there will be 
no more quarrel. But we shall miss 
its gay blossoms and especially the 
weeping cherry that stood behind it. 
now gone too, that used to burst forth 
with the first announcement of spring. 


"They really open up a whole new 

Dr. Arthur L. Cohen, the stocky, 
earnest professor of biology at Ogle- 
thorpe University, was speaking of the 
two electronic microscopes used in his 

These scientific aids enable Dr. Co- 
hen and his students to look into the 
infinitely small and endlesslv fasci- 
nating world of cell structure. 

Complicated and powerful, they 
don't look at all like the old-fashioned 
light microscopes. Electron micro- 
scopes use beams of electrons instead 
of beams of light as the more familiar 
instruments do. "With the beam of 
electrons one can see much finer de- 
tail," Dr. Cohen said. 

The electron microscope bears the 
same relationship to the light micro- 
scope as the light microscope does to 
the naked eye," he explained. 

Of course, the new wonders haven't 
displaced the old light models in the 
teaching field. They have supplemented 
them, providing a wider and better 
course of instruction and research. 

Dr. Cohen's specialty is the study 
of the growth and development of the 
myxomycetes (slime molds). He is em- 
phasizing the investigation of the fine 
(sub-microscopic) structures of the 

This noted biologist, a Guggenheim 
Fellow, received his doctor's degree 
from Harvard in 1940. He is known 
for his ability to train and use under- 
graduate assistants in biological re- 
search programs at Oglethorpe. Studies 
are currently under way aided by funds 
from the U.S. Public Health Service 
and the National Science Foundation. 

"Students of reasonable competence" 
are allowed to use the smaller of the 

two electron microscopes and some 
"experienced undergraduate assistants 
are permitted to use the larger one," 
Dr. Cohen added. 

Research is an important part of 
Oglethorpe's entire biology program. 
Dr. Cohen pointed out. Care and 
thought are given to the training of the 
general student as well as the specialist. 

So many colleges keep their aca- 
demic and their research programs sep- 
arated, he added. "It is rare that 
undergraduates are allowed to see and 
use the instruments. We are using 
equipment and research results in 
teaching. This gives the undergraduates 
a feeling of participation." 

The university's purpose is to show 
students the relation of science to the 
other fields of knowledge and to human 

"We are attempting to give a 
thoroughly modern biology so that, 
when they leave, our students will be 
well-grounded for advanced work in 
the swiftly moving fields of medicine, 
biological research and teaching," Dr. 
Cohen said. 

He places great emphasis on learn- 
ing from experiments instead or mere- 
ly reading from a text or manual, he 
added. A flexible program, which 
bolsters students' weak points and 
encourages the development of their 
academic strong points, is a major aim. 
"1 feel that is a specific function of the 
small college," Dr. Cohen stated. 

Oglethorpe's biological research pro- 
gram has been greatly strengthened by 
the two electron miscroscopes. But the 
entire science section, including bi- 
ology, is sadly in need of teaching 
space, light microscopes, specimens, 
slides, films and other teaching aids. 
And as for the laboratory furniture. 
Dr. Cohen could sum it up in one 
word: "decrepit." 

A group of alumni attended the dinner in the school cafeteria before walking over to watch 
the game against St. Bernard.

The Flying Petrel 

The Petrels are shown 
storming St. Bernard 80 
to 46 at the Fall Home- 
coming Game. In the 
stands, alumni watch 
the opening game in 
Oglethorpe's crowded 
basketball season. 


The Oglethorpe Petrels have won six and lost one after 
seven games of their toughest basketball schedule in history 
and the most surprised man in the inner circle is Coach 
Garland Pinholster. 

"I don't know if this is going to be a short honexnioon 
or a long honeymoon," Pinholster said. "'All I knou is that 
I'm awfully surprised that we are 6-1 at this stage of the 
season. Every game is a big game for us and we will con- 
tinue to play them one at a time. We can't afford to look 
ahead to anyone on our schedule." 

The big ones have come and the 
big ones, all but Mississippi Southern, 
have been knocked for a loop b\ this 
edition of the Petrels. 

They have whipped St. Bernard, <S()- 
46; Piedmont, 78-52; Mississippi Col- 
lege, 103-70; Carson-Newman, 69-63; 
Rhode Island, 64-47, and Georgia 
Southern 77-67. The only loss was to 
Mississippi Southern in Hattiesburc, 

The Mississippi College and Carson- 
Newman victories came in the Ogle- 
thorpe Holiday Tournament, and once 
again the Petrels won their own festi- 

■'Of course," Pinholster said, "the 
sweetest of all these victories, and per- 
haps the sweetest during my years at 
Oglethorpe, was the Rhode Island vic- 

"The Rams came into Atlanta with 
a national reputation. They were 
NCAA quarter-finalists last year, whip- 
ping NIT Champ Providence. They 
brought in nine of the 10 players from 
that team and when they left they were 
a soundly beaten bunch of boys. 

The way the Oglethorpe boys hustle 
and the way they play offense and de- 
fense." Rhode Island coach Ernest 
Calverly said, "they could play any 
team in our part of the country. Those 
boys wanted to win and they did." 

The Petrels defense, coached by 
assistant Billy Carter was superb 
against the Rams. Using a zone, which 
one sportswriter said looked like a 
"mop", they reduced the Rams' po- 
tent fast-break offense to a slow walk 
and nothing else. 

Thus far Morris Mitchell, Jay Row- 
land and Tommy Norwood have led 
the Oglethorpe offensive attack. Nor- 
wood carries the best combination 
statistics, scoring and shooting percent- 

"However," Pinholster said, "our 
most consistent performers have been 
Rowland and Bobby Sexton." 

Against Rhode Island Sexton, the 
sophomore from Opelika, Ala., was 
at his best. He peppered the net when 
the Petrels needed some pepper early 
in the second half and finished high 
scorer for the night.

The crowds at the games have also 
increased considerably over the past 
years. The new field house has been 
filled for three of the last four games, 
with a near-capacity crowd on hand 
for the finals of the tournament. 

The season isn't old. There is much 
yet to come. Peru Olympians, Pike- 
ville, Belmont Abbey, Cumberland 
and such teams of that stature. 

"I would certainly settle for a 6-1 
record for the next seven games," Pin- 
holster said. 

The five freshmen have looked im- 
pressive, especially when they played 
Georgia Tech, losing by five to what 
Tech calls "our best freshman team 
in history." 

Things are bright indeed. 


Oglethorpe Alumni will induct and 
honor the first members of the Ogle- 
thorpe Athletic Hall of Fame on Alum- 
ni Da\ in May, 1962. at the Booster 
Club meeting. 

Approximately lU of Oglethorpe's 
greatest athletes will be honored this 
year. Additions to the roster will be 
made in future years. 

A section of the Field House will 
be designated for the posting of pic- 
tures, records and other data on Ogle- 
thorpe's legendary athletes. 

Alumni who wish to propose some- 
one for the Hall of Fame should con- 
tact the committee member who is 
most likely to know the person in ques- 
tion. That is, a member who was at 
Oglethorpe at the time of the athlete's 
greatness or who had knowledge of 
his record. 

If you can't decide on a suitable 
committee member, send your pro- 
posal to Coach Garland Pinholster. 

The following men have been invited 
to serve on the Hall of Fame Advisory 

Coach Frank Anderson, Coach John 
Patrick, Coach Garland Pinholster, 
Earl Mann, Ed Danforth, Ralph Mc-
