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

THROUGH THE YEARS
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
by HERBERT McMULLEN, '63
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

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.

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
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.
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.
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
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.
PETREL MAINSTAY— One of
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.
