Typical questions and the answers
are listed below:

FORWARD OGLETHORPE FUND REPORT
Dr. Agnew and the NAAOU officers wish to thank all alumni who have
generously contributed to the Forward Oglethorpe Fund during its first year
m operation. More than $1, 400 was leccivcd, which is an excellent beginning.
To a great extent, the progress of Oglethorpe is tied to the results of this
fund. As noted in the report which follows the greatest amount was used to
supplement faculty salaries, the largest single need at Oglethorpe.
Report on Expenditure of Forward Oglethorpe Funds
Total Income $1,446.50
Grant-ln-Aid for Student Employment $200.00
(These funds were added to the student employment budget which
is used to assist some 50 students who are working their way in
whole or in part through Oglethorpe.)
Faculty Salary Supplement $400.00
(Oglethorpe must continue to upgrade its faculty salaries to keep
its superior teaching staff and to attract additional tap flight
people. College teachers are in short supply and indications arc
that the supply zvill become increasingly more critical during the
Student Activity Fund Supplement $300.00
(.-/ well-rounded extra curricular program is important to the de-
velopment of well-rounded students.)
Student Lounge Improvements $119.88
(77' sets were purchased for Goodman Hall lounge and the
neivly created lounge in Lowry Hall. Inadequate lighting in
Goodman Lounge is being corrected.)
Campaign Expenses $426.62
(A necessary evil in all fund raising ventures.)
Total Expenses $1,446.50
If you approve of the manner in which these funds were used, please
endorse this program with another generous contribution. To you who have
already expressed your confidence with a gift, thank you very much.

EXECUTIVES PLEASE NOTE
The following is a reprint from the May, 1959 issue of Memo from
Bonnie DeKalb, ;i news letter published by the DeKalb Office Equipment Co.
It should be of interest to alumni who own their own businesses or who are in-
strumental in formulating their companies' fiscal programs.
A TAX DOLLAR SAVED IS MORE THAN A DOLLAR EARNED
In effect, that's the paradox of today's high tax rates. For example, the
table below shows that a tax saving of SI 00 is the equivalent of over SI. 000
in sales, in a business which has a 20' ; profit margin. . . .
The Sales Equivalent of a
SI 00 Tax Saving
(Profit margin is on sales before taxes.
Fiuures are rounded off.)
margin of :
sales of :
sales of :
This emphasizes that a tax dollar saved is worth almost twice as much as
a cost-saving of one dollar. Again taking a company with 20', profit margin
before tax, S100 saved by cost-cutting will be the equivalent, net, of around
S500 in added sales — as against a net equivalent of about SI, 000 if the saving
is in the form of tax reduction.
it may be hard to believe, but it's a fact that a company with, say a
10', profit margin, gains the equivalent of almost $21,000 in new sales by
saving S 1 ,000 in taxes.
"And note this: where profit margins are smaller, the "tax lever" means
greatly amplified savings. For a company whose margin is, say, 4%, a
SI, 000 tax saving is the equivalent of more than S50.000 in additional
"If you'd like to work out what a given tax saving would mean in sales
equivalent for your company, just fill in this simple formula:
1. Jot down the tax saving you have in mind S50 . . . S100 . . . SI, 000
and divide by 48', (assuming the company is in the 52% bracket).
2. Divide this amount by your percentage profit margin.
3. The result will show the sales equivalent of tax saving in your case."
Need we add that company gifts to Oglethorpe, a non-profit organization,
will save tax dollars?

All funds have the same fiscal year,
which begins and ends on Home-
5. What is Oglethorpe's greatest as-
Informed, interested and active
6. Are there different ways to give?
Yes. In addition to cash (including
checks.) other real or personal pro-
perty can be turned over to any of
the funds or directly to Oglethorpe.
Some alumni find it advantageous
to give stocks or bonds.
7. Is active itluiuni participation limit-
ed to graduates?
No. Records are kept on all per-
sons who attended Oglethorpe.
8 Can I give mv annual gift in in-
Yes. Several alumni mail their gifts
in three installments as suggested
in the campaign literature. If you
prefer, several checks, each post-
dated in different months, can be
sent at the same time. The alumnus
will receive additional credit after
each check is deposited. Other
methods which might make it more
convenient for you would probably
be equally acceptable.
9. Is there a limit to how much I can
give to any fund?
No. Actually, due to the present
Federal Income Tax Structure,
alumni in high tax brackets may
find it to their advantage to give a
sizeable sum. However, they should
keep in mind that whether they give
to all funds or single out one, they
are, for tax-deduction purposes, giv-
ing to one non-profit organization —
10. Can alumni meetings be arranged
for in my area?
Very probably, especially in Geor-
gia and adjacent states. Notify the
Alumni Office if you are interested
in having a meeting, and we will
send out the notices if desired.
11. Can I get information about Ogle-
thorpe, especially that concerned
with the admission of students
from the Alumni Office?
Yes. The principal function of the
Alumni Office is to serve as liason
between the alumni and the Uni-
versity. It is suggested that questions
pertaining to admission to Ogle-
thorpe be directed to the Director
of Admissions However, if re-
quested the Alumni Office will send
application blanks or catalogs to

PETRELS POST BEST
SEASON IN DECADE
Leaning heavily on the battery.
Tommy Norwood and Billy Carter,
the Petrel nine racked up their best
season in ten years with a 9-3 record.
Billy Carter, who played catcher
last year for the first time in his life,
led the squad in batting; sporting a
neat .400 average and a .700 slugging
average. He topped the team in runs
scored, too, with 17.
Tommy Norwood, a freshman, pit-
ched a 7-2 win-loss record this sea-
son and was runner-up at the plate to
Carter with a .375 average. Norwood
also is credited with 12 RBI's, high-
est for the team. Harold Adair, the
only non-basketball player on the
squad, followed closely with a .351
average and scored 14 runs. Fresh-
man Jay Rowland with a .320 batting
average rounds out the four over-. 300
These four boys crossed the plate
51 of the 81 runs scored this season.
Carter, Norwood and Roger Couch
accounted for all of the homeruns with
Joe Sewell, plagued by an infection
on his hands all season, edged Nor-
wood in pitching with 2.12 earned
runs per game. Norwood had a 2.22.
Sewell won two games and lost none.
The Petrels ended their season
standing second in the GIAC, one
game off the pace. Piedmont, which
took the championship, was never able
to play their last game due to weather
conditions. If they had played and
lost, Oglethorpe would have tied for
first, and a play-off would have been
necessary. But these are things that
might have been. During the regular
season, the Birds split with Piedmont.
One of the losses this year was
against Clemson's Tigers, the top coll-
legiate team in the South. The alumni
saw Oglethorpe lose by a very credit-
able 6-2 in a game that was close and
exciting all the way. Roger Couch led

BOOST THE PETRELS
In May I had the pleasure of watch-
ing Coach Pinholster and the Petrel
basketball team in several spring prac-
tice sessions. Now 1 know it wasn't
luck or an accident that we won 24
games last year. Every minute of the
practice session is well organized and
every ball player works intelligent!)
with 100 per cent effort. If you could
see this team, you would be as en-
thusiastic and proud of it as I am.
If you can possibly see the Petrels
play this season don't miss them.
Last year they had a great team. 1 be-
lieve this team can possibly be better.

beat Georgia on December 1 . (You're
on the spot, Coach.)

REMINISCING WITH THE
This is the season when the most
popular part of the campus is Lake
Phoebe. No matter how old an alum-
nus you are, you probably remember
the lake, under one name or another,
as a part of college life. And the lake
was there long before you were. Some
ten years ago, we met a man, probab-
ly around sixty-five, who had played
there as a boy and who introduced us
to his mother, let us not ask how old
a woman is. She averred that the dam
had been there when she came to the
neighborhood seventy-five years be-
fore. If this is true, Lake Phoebe is
one of the oldest bodies of water in
When Oglethorpe moved to this
campus, the lake, then Silver Lake,
and the property around it were in the
hands of the Silver Lake Park Com-
pany and later of the Lake Forest De-
velopment Company. In 1936, Wil-
liam Randolph Hearst bought the
whole area and presented it to Ogle-
thorpe, whereupon the name of the
lake was changed to Phoebe in honor
of his mother.
During the years of World War II
when the campus had fallen on evil
days, the lake had degenerated into
a hangout for squatters and other riff-
raff The beach was mud studded with
tin cans and broken bottles; broken-
down shacks were holding together
here and there; and old, snake-infested
walkways sagged into the water along
the shore. A committee of alumni,
trustees, and faculty was formed in
the fall of 1944 to clean it up. It was
done, mainly by alumni, I might say.
We remember particularly Tom Bar-
tenfeld '24, who donated time, trucks,
and other equipment to snake logs and
debris out of the water. All buildings
were torn down, the beach cleaned,
sand brought in, a retaining wall
made, and a fine bath house (now de-
stroyed by vandalism) built. For three
years we let the public in — for a
price, but since then it has been for
the exclusive use of Oglethorpe people.
Perhaps the most interesting episode
connected with the lake occurred in
the early twenties. An Oglethorpe
marksman, who shall be nameless,
shot the bolts off the drain valve of
the dam, whereupon the usual hap-
pened, and the lake disappeared. As
the level fell, fish collected in the
remaining water, some enterprising
students, Frank Sims '22 and Edgar
Watkins '23, to mention two, trucked
them out to sell to the fish market.
