OGLETHORPE COLLEGE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION
GULF GIVES MONEY FOR LIBRARY
Mr. Kenneth S. Griggs, District Manager for Gulf Oil
Corporation, is shown above presenting a check for
$5,000 to Dr. Paul Kenneth Vonk, President of Ogle-
thorpe. The grant is a part of the company's educational
assistance program which will distribute over $2 mil-
lion to students and institutions of higher learning for
various aid-to-education programs.
The grants by Gulf are made to privately operated and
controlled institutions like Oglethorpe. These institu-
tions obtain a major portion of their financial support
from non-tax sources such as Gulf Oil Corporation.
The Gulf Oil Corporation stipulated that the grant be
used for library improvement. Oglethorpe President
Vonk commented, "This grant will be a tremendous
boost to our campaign to increase greatly the number
of volumes in Oglethorpe's newly renovated library.
This gift will be used to establish the Gulf Collection."
OGLETHORPE COOKBOOK A SUCCESS
The Oglethorpe Cookbook, just off the press, has been
an overwhelming success.
The history of Oglethorpe College is so closely inter-
twined with the history of Georgia, as well as the history
of Atlanta, that no publication of this type would have
been complete without including recipes of some of the
historic figures of Georgia. Recipes by Franklin D.
Roosevelt, Joel Chandler Harris and many other famous
people who have contributed to the history of Georgia
are included in the cookbook.
The Cookbook has been so widely accepted that Rich's
is currently selling it in their stores throughout the met-
ropolitan Atlanta area. The Board of Directors of the
Oglethorpe Alumni Association, in conjunction with the
Women's Club, is also trying to promote the sale of
these books to alumni and friends.
Oglethorpe enrollment has experienced dramatic
growth during the past three years. In 1965,
our student enrollment numbered 425. Today we
have over 1,000 students.
While we are proud of our current student body, we
seek always to enroll students of outstanding
quality, both in academic ability and in
character and citizenship.
Dr. Vonk has said "no single aspect of the college
affects its excellence more than the quality
of its student body . . . not a new president,
not faculty and not buildings:"
Thus, we strive constantly to upgrade the student
quality. There is no dearth of students and numbers
represent no problem. However, the challenge
is to enroll the sought after outstanding graduating
high school scholar and student leader.
Toward this end, I urge your participation in the
Oglethorpe admissions program. Call me at (404)
233-6864 or write anytime you have a prospective
student that you think should receive a visit
from an Oglethorpe admissions counselor.
The alumni have no better opportunity to serve their

I would like to give public recognition to APO Service
Fraternity for the contribution they have rendered to
their College. APO has never failed to respond when
asked to serve in behalf of the College. Truly, these men
reflect the spirit of service upon which APO was founded.
