The Legend of the Boar's Head Ceremony 

It is said that Queens College, Oxford celebrated the original Boar's Head 
Ceremony because a student had been saved from a wild boar by stuffing a copy 
of Aristotle down the Boar's throat and choking him to death. Having died 
at the pen of such an outstanding writer, the boar provided a fine Christmas 
dinner and gave the students of the thirteenth century an excellent excuse for a 
party so they celebrated Aristotle's choking abilities every year. 

After the tradition became well established, moral symbolations were added 
and the ceremony was given a religious interpretation. 

The boar's head, sometimes weighing nearly a hundred pounds, was cooked 
and decorated with flags, had cranberry eyes and an orange was put in its mouth. 
The head was then borne in on a large platter while the students sang the ancient 
Boar's Head Carol. After the singing the students ate. 

The Boar's Head Ceremony started at Oglethorpe in 1944, when there were 
thirty-five students and a small faculty. Christmas was like a family affair. A

joined in the singing and went out to gather the decorations. At this time, in 
addition to the familiar Christmas carols, a balladier sang ancient carols accom- 
panying himself on the mandelin. 

The Boar's Head fraternity was first established on the campus in 1920, but 
it disappeared during the years around World War II. The membership was 
honorary and based on scholarship. About 1947 after its reorganization the 
members took the planning of the Boar's Head Ceremony as a service project. 
The number enrolled in the school was too large for everyone to do everything 
and having one group responsible for the planning saw that what had to be done 
was done. 









The Boar's Head Processional 



The Boar's Head 

In 1950 a stuffed European Boar's 
head replaced the pig's head. The ro- 
mance of the new Boar's head was in- 
creased by the knowledge that it was 
shot with a bow and arrow. The Play- 
ers, along with other groups on campus, 
gave the head to the school. 

As the number of guests that at- 
tended increased so did the formality. 
The school Chorus began to take a 
more prominent part. Costumes were 
made for the pages and it became a 
tradition for the pages to be children 
of the professors. 

Although the number that attended 
has increased, the feeling of the in- 
scription over the fire place in the Great 
Hall is still present . . . "Square round 
and let us closer be, ..." A roaring 
fire and an abundance of Christmas 
spirit fill the Great Hall.

Jim Holliday '49 President 

Almost every phase of life as we 
know it is represented by those of us 
who attended Oglethorpe. Doctors, 
lawyers, religious leaders, educators, 
physicists, chemists — name it and 
there is a wide margin of representa- 
tion. Students from many nations, re- 
ligions, rich and poor, young and 
elderly — those hallowed doors have 
never failed to open to those seeking 
self improvement. Her Alumni can 
take great pride in the knowledge that 
long ago our school had overcome the 
petty grievances of prejudice, intoler- 
ance — a lack of feeling for our fellow 
man. She has been a directive for 
democracy in many corners of our 
globe — producing much, asking little 
in return. Tried as very few institutions 
of her kind have known and has risen 
to a height placing her with the best. 

We of Oglethorpe know these things 
and our appreciation can come to 
light only by routinely remembering 
her endeavors — and acting! Henry 
Thoreau once stated, "Build your 
castles in the sky and then underneath 
build a solid foundation". The founda- 
tion is strong and we, the Alumni the 
builders, must continue to keep these 
castles in focus. 



Ladies of Japan 
Visit Campus 

Japan's five most influential ladies 
were at Oglethorpe October 12-15 as 
guests of the United States State De- 
partment. They were accompanied by 
a department official and a Japanese 
interpreter. These ladies are touring 
the United States and Atlanta was the 
first city they visited after they left 
Washington, D.C. 

They were especially interested in 
seeing the type of education America's 
youth is offered. Spellman and Ogle- 
thorpe were chosen as the two colleges 
they would visit while they were here. 
They also visited the Georgia Training 
School for Girls, Stone Mountain and 
several private homes. They attended a 
meeting of the Women's League for 
Peace and Freedom the evening before 
they left. 

While at Oglethorpe they toured the 
campus, visited in the girls dorm and 
had an interview with Dr. Agnew. The 
ladies were impressed with the campus 
and the idea of a small number of 
students attending a school with so 
much space. 

When they visited the girls dorm 
they were surprised that they were al- 
lowed to see the girls as they were: 
studying, rolling their hair or ironing. 
The informality and general friendli- 
ness of the girls made their visit mem- 
orable. 

Dr. Agnew's interview with them 
showed a sharp but favorable contrast 
to the strict formality experienced 
when speaking with either European or 
Asian educators. They freely asked Dr. 
Agnew questions about the college, 
American education and the Ogle- 
thorpe students. 

A touch of humor was added to the 
interview when one of the Japanese 
ladies asked Dr. Agnew if the female 
students at Oglethorpe were like co-ed 
students in Japan who came to college 
to find a husband as well as an educa- 
tion. Dr. Agnew paused for a moment 
and replied in the affirmative. 

After they finish their tour of the 
United States two of the ladies will 
participate in a similar tour of the 
European Countries.

Oglethorpe Self Study 

Oglethorpe University has been un- 
dergoing a self-study program for the 
past year. In this self-study every as- 
pect of the school has came under 
close scrutiny. The purpose of this 
intensive revaluation is to be aware 
of any improvements needed. 

Oglethorpe is a member of the 
Southern Association of Colleges and 
Schools, which is the accrediting 
agency for the Southeast. Oglethorpe 
was first accredited in 1950. It is the 
practice of the S.A.C.S. to re-examine 
those colleges which are accredited by 
it about once every ten years. 

This re-examination came in the 
form of a Visiting Committee from 
the S.A.C.S. for the reaffirmation of 
accreditation. The committee was here 
November 3-6. While here they talked 
to students and professors, visited class 
rooms, checked records in various of- 
fices on campus, ate in the cafeteria 
and checked the infirmary. 

The Chairman of this committee was 
Dean Charles B. Vale of Hampden- 
Sydney College, Hampden-Sydney, 
Virginia. The other members of the 
committee were: Dean Edward Alvey 
of Mary Washington College, Fred- 
ericksburg, Virginia; Dr. Warren F. 
Jones, President emeritus of Union 
University, Jackson, Tennessee; Dean 
Charles I. Diehl, Dean of men at 
Southwestern at Memphis, Tennessee; 
Mr. Leon Fordem, Librarian at Day- 
tona Beach College, Daytona Beach, 
Florida. 

After three days of poking into every 
nook and cranny of Oglethorpe the 
members of the Committee will write 
a long report to be screened by another 
committee for the December Meeting 
of the S.A.C.S. During this meeting the 
screening committee will make a rec- 
ommendation to the Association as a 
whole. 



John Patrick Honored 
at Dinner 




John W. Patrick 

John W. Patrick, '33, assistant su- 
perintendent of East Chicago Public 
Schools, was honored at a testimonial 
dinner on November 18th as he marks 
the end of 20 years as athletic director 
of the schools. 

The tribute was paid to Mr. Patrick 
at St. Stanislaus Auditorium in East 
Chicago. 

Mr. Patrick stepped out of the pub- 
lic school's athletic program when the 
football season ended. He will now 
devote his time and energy as director 
of personnel in the East Chicago 
School System. 

Patrick became director of physical 
education and athletics in the East 
Chicago public schools in 1944 after 
a 10 year career as head football 
coach, dean of the school, of health 
and physical education, director of in- 
tramural athletics and dean of men at 
Oglethorpe University. At Oglethorpe 
he was an outstanding football player. 
He received his Bachelor of Arts de- 
gree in 1932, and his Master's degree 
in 1933. 

Under Patrick's supervision, local 
high school athletic teams in East 
Chicago have taken 8 sectional and 6 
regional basketball championships, 3 
semi-state crowns, one state champion- 
ship and runner-up honors another 



Definition of a Word 

Endowment. 

What is endowment? 

Webster defines endowment as "that 
which is bestowed or settled on a per- 
son or institution". 

So far, so good, but it does not ans- 
wer the question of what is endow- 
ment. Let us look at the word again. 
Endowment. Where does the word 
come from? En- meaning make, make 
into, or make like; dowry; meaning a 
gift of money, goods or property; and 
-ment: a concrete result or thing. Now 
a word with meaning has emerged. 

Endowment: make a gift of money, 
or more specifically, make a gift of 
money to an institution. 

Why? 

Why is endowment money important 
to Oglethorpe or any other college? 
Endowment money is invested in 
stocks and bonds that will produce an 
income. This income is used for the 
operating expenses of the college. The 
principle is not touched. 

Oglethorpe does not have enough 
endowment money invested to bring 
the income from the principle to sup- 
port the operation of the college and 
to raise faculty salaries to the level 
needed to retain the teaching staff we 
now have. 

Oglethorpe needs more endowment 
money to invest. 

A gift to endowment is a gift which 
keeps on giving. 

If you cannot contribute to endow- 
ment, you can make your gift replace 
needed new income from new endow- 
ment and you may be able to influence 
sources of endowment to invest in 
Oglethorpe. 

Endowment. 

What is endowment? 

Endowment can be a word in the dic- 
tionary or it can be the life's blood 
of a living institution. 



time. Also, thirteen Western Division 
conference football championships, 9 
state championships and 7 Northern 
Indiana conference titles. 

Two of his coaches attained the 
highest state recognition honors; one 
was football coach of the year and the 
other was named basketball coach of 
the year.

Walters Promoted 

Chris A. Hansen, Chief of the Di- 
vision of Research Services, has an- 
nounced the appointment of Robert 
S. Walters, Jr., '57 to the newly es- 
tablished position of DRS Information 
Office of the National Institute of 
Neurological Diseases of Blindness. 

He came to NIH from the graduate 
school of the University of Wisconsin 
where he did work in Physiology and 
zoology. 

Mr. Walters is a 1957 graduate of 
Oglethorpe University, summa cum 
laude. He majored in chemistry and 
biology. 



Development Brochures 
To Be Mailed 

Each of the alumni will receive in the 
near future a copy of the new develop- 
ment brochure, "The Oglethorpe Idea". 
This brochure will be used as part of a 
major developmental program which 
has already been inagurated. 

Oglethorpe's unusual program of 
combined liberal arts, practical arts, 
community service merits the support 
of groups, individuals and corporations 
beyond the immediate alumni friends. 
We hope that you will use the brochure 
to inform others of their opportunity to 
participate in supporting an institution 
which has been recognized f.or its con- 
tributions to the moral, ethical and in- 
tellectual life of the community and na- 
tion. 




Dr. Aqnew with Francis S. Key and Denny W. Spencer look over the projected figures lor the future

Alumni - Faculty 
Hold Dinner Meeting 

Both faculty and alumni were well 
represented at the Alumni-Faculty 
Dinner meeting held November 20. The 
purpose of the meeting was to hear 
plans for the forthcoming Alumni 
Campaign. 

After a delicious steak dinner Mr. 
Jim Holiday '49, president of the 
Alumni Association, opened the meet- 
ing and introduced Mr. Howard Axel- 
berg '40. Mr. Axelberg, a member of 
the Board of Trustees, spoke on the 
changes that have taken place at Ogle- 
thorpe in the last ten years. He said 
that these changes have helped the al- 
ready good image that Oglethorpe has 
with the general public and have con- 
tributed to the improvement of the 
Oglethorpe image in the Business 
Community. The improved image is 
also being carried to the community 
by the increased activity of the Alumni 
Association and the Board of Trustees. 
Mr. Axelberg seemed hopeful about 
Oglethorpe's future because of the now 
prevailing attitude of those concerned 
that if Oglethorpe is to get ahead it 
will be by the efforts of those most 
closely associated with it.

Mr. Holiday then introduced Mr. 
"Penny" Jones '61, head of the For- 
ward Oglethorpe Campaign. Mr. Jones 
outlined the plans for obtaining the 
sixty thousand dollar goal that has 
been set for the three year period 
1964-67. He also noted the fact that 
the Alumni Association had achieved 
much over the last six years. He stated 
that he hoped the Association would 
be able to put to use the experience 
that has been gained during the cam- 
paigns of the last few years.

Sports 



Soccer-Tied 2, Lost 9 

While the won-loss record was not 
glittering, the soccer team had its most 
successful season. This success was 
reflected by the number of boys who 
participated consistently, working dil- 
igently without any signs of discourage- 
ment, under Coach Bill Carter. They 
played a powerful schedule, with the 
strongest being N.C.A.A. contender 
Davidson. They finished with a tie 
against St. Bernard, the next-toughest 
team on the schedule. 

Soccer has proved to be a very val- 
uable addition to the inter-collegiate 
athletic program. It offers an opportun- 
ity for boys from the student body to 
participate in varsity athletics, even 
though they may not have an outstand- 
ing high school athletic background. 
We are very proud of our soccer pro- 
gram, and believe that in time the 
won-loss record will come up to par 
with the hard-working enthusiasm of 
the players and the coach. 



Basketball-Won 2, Lost 1 

As of this writing, the basketball 
prospects are very "iffy". The main 
"if" lies in the potential of the less 
experienced boys on the team. Grad- 
uation deprived us of the services of 
Morris Mitchell, Bob Nance and Dar- 
rell Whitford (Darrell is playing AAU 
basketball with the Akron Goodyears 
— a real honor). If Walker Heard, 
Bill Parker, Bill Stewart, Jimbo Hart- 
lage, Bobby Dalgleish and the other 
younger boys can take up the slack, 
we will have a fine year. Bobby Sexton 
and Ray Thomas are the only two 
returning starters. 

The season started against Piedmont 
College, which has come to be our 
traditional opening game. Piedmont is 
the only team on our schedule which 
we have played twice every year for 
the last seven years. They never fail 
to fight all the way. The final score 
was Oglethorpe 86, Piedmont 55. 
Oglethorpe was erratic on both offense 
and defense. 

Murray State nearly swept us right 
out of the state of Kentucky, beating 
us 83-57. If anything good can be said 
about such a defeat, it is that this game 
showed us many of our weaknesses 
early in the season. 



Oglethorpe came back to a respect- 
able 84-71 win over a strong Troy 
State team. The team looked better 
on offense but defense requires a lot 
of work yet. 

Our next games before Christmas 
include two powerhouses, Phillips Oil- 
trs and Georgia Southern. In the In- 
vitational Tournament we will meet the 
University of the South (Sewanee) on 
the first night. The other two teams are 
Mississippi College, the record-holder 
for points scored last year with an 
average of 114; and David Lipscomb, 
who defeated Western Kentucky last 
season. 

The schedule this year is the most 
ambitious yet. Whether Oglethorpe 
can reach the N.C.A.A. tournaments 
again this year depends on the drive, 
dedication and hustle which the boys 
put forth day after day, practice after 
practice, game after game. I would 
like to encourage all alumni to come 
to the games and support the team. 
Your presence and your cheers mean 
a great deal. Come to see the Stormy 
Petrels, at home and away, and help 
"make the Wheel roll" for 1963-'64.
