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.

ADMISSIONS 



CLASS CAPTAINS 



Dear Alumni: 

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 
alma mater. 



William L. Camp IV 
Director of Admissions 



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. 

Paul Kenneth Vonk 

President
