Dear Fellow Alumni. 

A New Year is here, and we are 
well on the way to reaching our goal 
of supporting our Alma Mater. As 
you will see elsewhere in this issue, 
many of you have responded already. 
I hope that your resolutions for 66 
included support for your college. If 
you haven't made your pledge, do it 
now, yes right now. Start '66 off by 
adding your name to the supporters 
in your class. 

You may feel that what you might 
send isn't much toward a goal of 
$30,000 but every gift, regardless of 
size, counts in equal weight toward 
our goal of 1050 contributors. From 
now on you will receive the Flying 
Petrel monthly. Make sure your name 
helps your class lead the way. 

By now you have received an invita- 
tion to an Alumni Reception at "Cran- 
ham" the new home of Doctor and 
Mrs. Beall on January 8, our Annual 
Homecoming Day. That evening we 
play Georgia Southern in what will 
probably be a critical game in the 
success of the team this season. 

Best wishes and success to you in 

Sincerely , 

TED BAYLEY, President 


This month we hare a special article by an 
alumnus. He is Ensign Herbert McMullen. 
USN '63, who finished his education at Ogle- 
thorpe through the Pop Crow fund. He re- 
calls fond memories of Pop in this article 
that all former Humanics students and 
alumni in general will want to read. 


The Pop Crow Fund 


It was late February of 1963 and time to 
start signing up for the last quarter of my 
senior year. It was no problem getting the 
classes that I needed to graduate, but the 
money for that quarter was nowhere to be 
found. I knew that the North DeKalb Rotary 
Club had started the Pop Crow Fund but 
never thought that I would qualify. Yet it 
seemed that like the spirit of Pop, they were 
there to help. Help they did. for with the 
$233.00 made available to me from the 
Rotary. I was able to get through that last 
quarter. You might say that without the 
help of the Rotary I wouldn't have made it. 

In any young man's life there are certain 
relationship with his elders that help mould 
him and lead the way. Pop was one of these 
people in my case. On a number of occa- 
sions, I can remember walking into the 
Crow's Nest (Pop's office) so bewildered and 
disgusted with school and any of a number 
of problems and Pop was always there to 
listen. He would sit back and puff away on 
his pipe, let you finish your say and then in 
his own special way guide you in making 
the right decision. His door was always open 
to any student as was his pocketbook. He 

Bernard Dekle, '27, is the author of a newly 
published book titled "Night Angel Street." 
Light and entertaining, "Night Angel Street" 
presents a view of Japan that never appears 
in the guidebooks. The book is published by 
Charles E. Tuttle Co., Inc. of Rutland, Ver- 
mont, and Tokyo, Japan. 

Mr. Dekle is presently employed by the 
U.S. Government as editor of Freedom 
Magazine, which is distributed in Korea. He 
is married to the former Mariko Niki, who 
starred for three years in the Broadway hit 
play, "Teahouse of the August Moon." 

The Dekles currently reside in the resi- 
dential outskirts of Tokyo with their six- 
year old son. Bobby. 

Stephen J. Schmidt, '40, was re-elected Vice-

President of the Fed-

to 1950. after which 
he joined the Reserve 
Bank's staff. He has

would co-sign a loan to help you get through 
school or even give you ten dollars for that 
special date. The small loans were always 
there and he never asked what they were 
for or even if the money would be put to 
good use. When Pop believed in something, 
he would fight for it and if he believed in 
you. he would fight for you. There seemed 
to be no obstacles that Pop could not con- 
quer in his own way. When the North 
DeKalb Rotary Club started the Pop Crow 
Fund they seemed to pick up a tradition 
started by a grand gentleman. It was a proud 
day for me when I was told that I would be 
the first recipient of the Pop Crow Fund.

Petrel Basketball 
Team Romps To 
Four Straight Wins 

The Oglethorpe Stormy Petrel 
Basketball team is off to a rousing 
start, with four straight victories to 
their credit as of December 13. 

Here's a brief rundown of the first 
four games: 

December 2 
Oglethorpe 65 Northwestern Louisiana 61 

The Petrels were outrebounded 25-14 in 
their first win, but it was a sweet one. 
Training 35-30 at halftime, and with thir- 
teen minutes left, by ten. the Petrels stormed 
from behind and pulled out the win. Bill 
Garrigan was high man with 18 points, 
followed by Roger Littell with 1 1 and Wal- 
ker Heard with 10. Freshman Jim Hoggarth 
helped spark the come-from-behind rally 
with 7 points, all at crucial moments. 

December 4 
Oglethorpe 97 Georgia State 48 

Roger Littell gunned 16 points in the first 
half and 12 in the second, as the Petrels 
completely outclassed Georgia State at the 
O'Keefe High Gym. Oglethorpe took the 
lead early and coasted to a 43-23 halftime 
lead. They also amassed a total of 42 re- 
bounds, with Jim Hoggarth. a guard, leading 

with nine. In addition to Littell's 28, Jerry 
Sams had 13, Walker Heard had 12, Hog- 
garth 12, and Doug Alexander chipped in 10. 

December 7 
Oglethorpe 86 Belmont Abbey 51 

Jerry Sams picked off 12 rebounds as the 
Petrels slugged toe-to-toe with Belmont Ab- 
bey during the first half and won going 
away. Once again Roger Littell was high 
scorer with 23 points, but four other players 
scored in double figures. Heard had 11, 
Doug Alexander, 16 and Sams and freshman 
J. P. Bruzek had 10 each. Coach Pinholster 
praised the excellent defensive effort of the 
squad after the game. The score speaks for 
the offense. c 

December 13 
Oglethorpe 75 Shorter 52 

The Petrels traveled to Rome in the un- 
derdog role against a Shorter team that came 
into this one, 7-0, including a win over 
Georgia Southern in Statesboro. 

The Pinholstermen forget to read the press 
clippings and thrashed the taller Hawks. 
Once again, the Petrel defense was outstand- 
ing. They kept Shorter away from the boards 
and roared to a 37-29 halftime lead. In the 
second half, they did even better, holding 
Shorter to a meager 23 points, 8 of which 
were field goals. 

Doug Alexander shot 8 of 10 from the 
floor and 6 out of 7 from the free throw 
line to lead all scorers with 22 points. He 
also grabbed 9 rebounds. Roger Littell had 
13 and Walker Heard and Jerry Sams gar- 
nered 10 apiece. 


the leading lights of Ogle- 
thorpe's cagers in the early sea- 
son going has been Roger Lit- 
tell, sophomore from Osgood, 
Indiana. Littell has averaged 
18.7 through the first four con- 
tests and is second on the club 
in rebounds with 18. Defending 
against Littell here is co-ed 
Marie Anderson who is a grand- 
daughter of Oglethorpe's former 
coach Frank Anderson.

Pistol Teams 
In Action 

Oglethorpe College's Black Pistol team has 
won two of their first three matches. 

Led by Mark Gray's 281 and Jeff Mc- 
Gowan's 276 they defeated Wisconsin, 1333 
to 1322 and Colorado State 1329 to 1286. 
The loss was to Arlington State 1380 to 

Chief Sewell Edwards reports that the 
team is improving every week and should 
have a winning season with a representative 
team for the Regional Intercollegiate Cham- 
pionships at Knoxville. The Gold Team led 
by Fred Ackley has a much tougher schedule. 
The Gold Team has lost their only match 
so far to Army 1329 to 1421. Even in de- 
feat, the marksmen made a worthy showing 
against the cadets, one of the nation's best 
pistol teams.
