21. '43. '57 IN LEAD - SO FAR
FORWARD OGLETHORPE FUND
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
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
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
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-

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.

REMINISCING WITH THE
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
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.

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.
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.

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.
