Sheffield, Schmidt 
Lead '60-'61 Alumni 

Two veterans. O. K. Sheffield "53 
and Stephen J. "Smitty"" Schmidt '40. 
were elected to head the two major 
alumni organizations for the coming 
year. 

Sheffield moved up from the first 
vice-presidential post in the National 
Alumni Assn., and Schmidt was re- 
elected for the third consecutive year 
to the Booster Club helm. 

The elections occurred during the 
;innii;il hipsiness mpetinijs of the twn 
organizations which were held on 
Alumni Day, April 30. 

About 250 alumni and friends of 
Oglethorpe braved heavy rains during 
the early part of the day to help dedi- 
cate the field house. They remained 
to take care of the annual alumni

business, see the Petrels win another 
baseball game, and try their best to 
consume all of the food at the smor- 
gasbord dinner. Food had been pre- 
pared for 450 people. 

Although the floor had not been 
completed, spectators were visibly 
awed by the size and uniqueness of 
the field house. Both Sheffield and 
Schmidt, representing their respective 
organizations, expressed gratitude to 
the Oglethorpe trustees for making 
the building possible. They also pledg- 
ed increased alumni interest and sup- 
port for the total Oglethorpe program. 

Your Alumni Assn. leaders for 
1960-61 are:

ALUMNI TO HELP 
MAKE PLANS 

The long, black lines of people 
with colorful hoods filed slowly out 
of the crowded auditorium, and an- 
other graduation day is over. 

Faces caught between smiles and 
tears finally resolve themselves into 
one or the other during the goodbyes 
around the punchbowl. Remarks such 
as. "I didn't realize I could get such 
a fine education at Oglethorpe until 
I actually attended." or "I've been to 
other colleges, but none has "iven me 
what I received at Oglethorpe," are 
predictable because each class of 
graduates has much the same thing 
to say. 

Alumni may feel as proud as these 
in the long lines that an Oglethorpe 
education means a significant educa- 
tion. They may feel proud of the firm 
foundation of quality that is being 
layed for coping with this complex 
society. 

Plans are being made to do an even 
better job in the years to come. Dur- 
ing the latter part of July, administra- 
tion and faculty members and repre- 
sentatives of the trustees and alumni 
will spend two or three days discuss- 
ing the future of Oglethorpe. At that 
time it is hoped that a general outline 
will be developed to guide Ogle- 
thorpe's destiny for several years. 

A major part of the discussions 
will undoubtedly concern the finan- 
cial support needed for program im- 
provements. It is believed that during 
the next five years a definitive pro- 
gram of development can be under-f 
taken so that funds for capital outla 
and endowment may be assured. 

But during this process, there is 
need for adequate additional support

225 in Summer School 
2nd Session Begins July 18 

Mrs. Marjorie MacConnell, regis- 
trar, stated that Oglethorpe has the 
highest summer school enrollment 
since 1956. Some 225 summer 
scholars are attending the first ses- 
sion which began on June 13. 

Notable among these students is 
that 1 1 are regular college students 
who are accelerating their college pro- 
gram. Sixty Oglethorpe students are 
in the group, including seven who will 
receive degrees in August, The re- 
maining 50 will transfer earned 
credits "to schools in which they are 
regularly enrolled. 

In-service teachers comprise the 
next largest group with 93 enrolled. 
They study in the summer to com- 
plete their undergraduate work, gain 
an increment advancement or update 
their teaching certificates. 

Relative newcomers to the summer 
program are high school students, 
graduates and non-grads, who have 
their eyes on college. Twenty-three 
of these youngsters are taking non- 
credit refresher courses in high school 
English and math, the major college 
stumbling blocks. This is the third 
year Oglethorpe has offered such a 
program. 

Thirteen courses will be offered in 
the second summer school session 
which begins on July 18. They in- 
clude: English; Speech and Writing II; 
Trigonometry; History: Western Civ- 
ilization III; Comparative Govern- 
ment; Southern History; History of 
the Symphony; Introduction to Phil- 
osophy; Man and the Universe; Ele- 
mentary French (second quarter); Ele- 
mentary School Art; Seminar in

Alumni Plan (cont.) 

This support we have called the Fund 
for the Future. 

In essence, the Fund for the Future 
consists of 5100,000 per year for five 
years to come from a limited number 
of sources — foundations, organiza- 
tions, and individuals. Each of these 
sources would contribute from S5,000 
to $20,000 per year for five years. 

This $100,000 per year would be 
used: 

1. To build a stable basis of finan- 
cial support 

2. To plan a long range develop- 
ment program 

3. To increase teacher salaries 

4. To improve the physical plant 

5. To support some phases of cur- 
rent operations 

6. To support special projects 

7. To contribute to the endowment 
Your alumni executive committee 

voted to support this new Fund by 
depositing all Forward Oglethorpe 
funds into it. A goal of 815,000 has 
been set as the alumni's share from 
September 1, 1960 to August 31, 
1961. Your gift may be earmarked 
for one or more of the areas listed 
above. If unmarked, it will be used 
in the area that has the greatest need. 

These funds will not overlap areas 
that are supported by Booster Club 
members, and Booster Club contribu- 
tions will be kept in a separate ac- 
count. 

Groundwork is being laid to form 
regional alumni groups. It is felt that 
this move will bring the alumni closer 
together through greater contact with 
each other. It can also be an effec- 
tive organization for solicitation dur- 
ing our annual alumni fund drives. 
It is hoped that during the drive this 
fall, virtually every alumnus will be 
personally asked to support the alum- 
ni program. 

Oglethorpe University has reached 
a point from which it is moving for- 
ward to become a truly great institu- 
tion. Through the efforts of the Board 
of Trustees, the faculty, the alumni, 
and friends of the college, progress 

Problems of Education; History of 
the English Language; and Philosophy 
of Religion. 

Each of these courses will be taught 
for five weeks ending on August 19. 
Additional information, for those 
wishing to enroll, can be obtained 
from Mrs. MacConnell. Call her at

McGill Charges Seniors, 
Klein, Jackson Win 
Oglethorpe Cups 

Six hundred spectators, including 
thirty-five graduating seniors, listened 
in excited silence as a master of words 
and ideas, Ralph McGill, charged the 
Class of 1960 during the 85th Ogle- 
thorpe University commencement pro- 
gram. 

McGill. publisher of The Atlanta 
Constitution, told the graduates that. 
"My generation needs your help in 
faith that law is founded on morality 
and that morality finds its foundation 
in the individual; that life does have 
values which sustain one in loneliness 
and frustration." 

He added. "A people that loses its 
self respect, its inner faith, is easily 
demoralized. With such people every- 
thing is for sale, including themselves, 
their ideals, their integrity." 

The baccalaureate sermon was de- 
livered by Bishop Costen J. Harrell. 
Visiting Professor in the Candler 
School of Theology at Emory Uni- 
versity. 

G. Arthur Howell. Jr.. chairman of 
the Oglethorpe University Board of 
Trustees, presented several annual 
awards to outstanding students. 

Charles O. Jackson, Jr. and Fran- 
cine A. Klein received the coveted 
James Edward Oglethorpe Cups as 
the man and woman who have best 
realized the ideals of an Oglethorpe 
education. 

Jackson, who graduated summa 
cum laude, also received the Faculty 
Scholarship Award. Miss Klein added 
the LeConte Science Society Award 
to her honors and graduated cum

has been made in all the basic areas 
connected with the institution. The 
curriculum has been and will continue 
to be studied. The objectives of the 
college have been restated. The finan- 
cial operation has become more effi- 
cient. The student body is larger than 
at any time during the past twenty 
years. The quality of the faculty has 
been steadily improved until it is sec- 
ond to none for small colleges in the 
area. 

The efforts of alumni and others 
in the past have led to the position 
that Oglethorpe holds today. Each of 
us is asked to support many worthy 
projects every year. May we suggest 
that you keep Oglethorpe in mind 
this fall? Continued help is needed 
to keep the long, black lines moving. 

The Flying Petrel 



BARTENFELDS HAVE 
RECIPE FOR LIVING 

Could this be your recipe for good 
iving? 

Take 400 acres of land 25 miles 
north of Atlanta, Georgia. Carefully 
separate the rolling, wooded tract 
from the bottom section. Fence bot- 
tom land into six pastures. Sprinkle 
enerously with 100 ponies and a 
score of dairy and beef cattle. Add 
I 15 acre lake stocked with bass and 
brim. Blend gently and top with a 
beautiful ranch style home overlook- 
ing the lake. 

That is the dish created and en- 
joyed by Mr, and Mrs. Thomas A. 
Bartenfield '24/'26. 

It took many years to gather the 
ingredients. 

In July, 1924, the year Mr. Barten- 
eld graduated from Oglethorpe, he 
and a sophomore co-ed, Carol Gif- 
ford, were married in the Founders 
Room in Lupton Hall. (They will 
celebrate their 36th wedding anniver- 
sary this month.) 

During the next 13 years Mr. Bar- 
tenfeld taught school and coached, 
sold insurance and cars and learned 
ibout electricity. "I never did find 
anything 1 liked," he said, "until 1 
started playing with electricity." 

He liked it so well that he formed 
the Bartenfeld Electric Company in 
1937. With an office in one room of 
his home in the Kirkwood section of 
Atlanta, and with one helper, Mr. 
Bartenfeld grossed 525,000 in his first 
year of operation. 

Today, the company has grown to 
about 25 regular employees, increas- 



ing to as many as 40 during peak per- 
iods, and grossing S70(),000 a year. 

But the business wi^rld is not the 
only one in which success has been 
met. The Bartenfelds have five child- 
ren — a daughter and four younger 
brothers — and five grandchildren. 

T. A. "Gus" Bartenfeld, Jr., a 
graduate of the U. S. Naval Academy, 
is associated with Bartenfeld [£lectric. 
Charles, second oldest son, is in the 
mortgage loan department of Adams- 
Cates, one of the largest realty firms 
in Atlanta. 

Turner and Jerry are studying at 
the University of Georgia. Turner is 
working for a masters degree in real 
estate. Jerry is a current recipient of 
a Dumbarton Oaks Scholarship. Only 
two awards of this kind are given an- 
nually to college juniors and seniors 
who are majoring in Landscape Ar- 
chitecture. After studying in Wash- 
ington, D .C. and touring the coimtry 
this summer under the auspices of the 
scholarship, Jerry will return to Geor- 
gia to complete his undergraduate 
work. 

The newest addition to the Barten- 
feld family is Seth Thomas, Jr. He is 
a champion Shetland pony who was 
bought this spring. According to Mr. 
Bartenfeld, "Junior was shown 36 
times and was in the money 3 1 times." 

Breedmg Slietland ponies was tak- 
en up seriously by Mr. Bartenfeld 
about seven years ago. The lovable, 
little animals can command a surpris- 
ing price of 81,500 to S6,500 dollars. 
With the acquisition of Seth Thomas, 
Jr.. the Bartenfeld breeding ranch 
has become one of the most import- 
ant in the country. 

Last November, at the 73rd an-

Mr. and Mrs. Bartenfeld chat at ertry way 
of their ranch style homee. 

nual meeting of the American Shet- 
land Pony Club, Inc.. Mr. Barten- 
feld was elected Director from the 
Southeast. He is also chairman of the 
first Shetland Pony Club convention 
ever to be held in Atlanta. The three 
day event will take place from Octo- 
ber 31 to November 2. 

Anonymous quotes depicting eacii 
senior's philosophy are printed under 
the appropriate pictures in the 1924 
Yamacraw. Under the picture of 
Thomas Augustus Bartenfeld is stated, 
"Anything that is worth doing at all 
is worth doing with all your might." 

That philosophy has paid off hand- 
somely for Mr. Bartenfeld by bring- 
ing him success in his business, suc- 
cess in his avocation and, above all, 
success with his family. 

O. U. Rifle Coach 
Wins First Match 

Chief of Campus Protection, Sew- 
ell Edwards, entered and won his 
first rifle match. 

Mr. Edwards shot in the unclassi- 
fied division at a River Bend Gun 
Club tournament in Atlanta. 

Barbara Marsh "60, a member of 
the Yamacraw Gun Club at Ogle- 
thorpe, came in third in the same con- 
test. She will graduate in August. 

Mr. Edwards reactivated the Ogle- 
thorpe Gun Club two years ago. It 
had about 25 active members during 
the past year.

Reminiscing with the 
WENDELL BROWNS 

YAMACRAVV 

At this writing. Commencement, 
with all its tears of regret and sighs 
of relief, is just over. As has been 
the custom in the past few years, the 
last official act of the day was the 
handing out of the yearbook — the 
Yaniacraw — and again, a very hand- 
some job is the result. And well it 
should be considering costs. All too 
often those tears and sighs of the dear 
departing are for tlie yearbook debt 
still towering over head. We are as- 
sured that this year all is well. 

Oglethorpe has been particularly 
fortunate in its output. These books 
are usually a fairly standard sort of 
thing — imitation tooled leather cov- 
er printed in gold enclosing page on 
page of faces and names, either singly 
or in groups. But somehow the Yania- 
craw has managed a little life, a little 
art. in the years since our arrival, the 
books of '31, '52, and '53 seem par- 
ticularly good. The first, under the 
editorship of Martha Mayson (now 
Bator) '51, has a burlap cover with 
a fine, almost abstract, line drawing 
of Lupton Hall. Inside all pictures 
were taken by Ed Bator '53, formerly 
a professional photographer, who, as- 
sisted by some talented colleagues, 
produced real portraits and beautiful 
campus views as well as plenty of 
candid shots that were really clear — 
and candid. 

The next year, Ed, himself, became 
editor. The cover is bound in Ox- 
ford gray flannel (genuine, too — 
the moths have been into ours) with 
a hole cut through to show a picture 
on the fly leaf of Lupton doorway. 
More good pictures, many used in 
subsequent Yaniacraws we notice, and 
excellent art work largely by Bob 
Stanley '53 and Dave Fischer "53. 
Again in 1953, the same gang under 
the editorship of Jean Kast (Shelton) 
'53 put out a book covered with 
stage scenery canvass and full of their 
usual excellencies. 

There was one time when costs and 
a small student body forced an aban- 
donment of the book, but the next 
year it came out as a double issue, 
1947-48, not a bad job except for the 
quality of the printing of the pictures. 

But perhaps the very most unusual 
Yamacraw of them all was our first, 
1945. The war was just ending, costs 
were prohibitive, and the student body 
under fifty souls. We purchased scrap 
books, black enamelled the covers.

pasted yellow Oglethorpe stickers on 
them, and varnished over the whole 
job. George Seward. Dean Seward to 
johnny-come-latelies, turned his many 
talents to taking pictures of individ- 
uals and groups on the campus. Ev- 
eryone, faculty or student who was 
not completely inept helped develop 
and print. Then each student was giv- 
en an empty scrapbook and a bundle 
of pictures and told to go to it. Some 
of us did nothing at all, some of us 
produced indifferent but highly per- 
sonal volumes with all the pictures 
of ourselves on the first page and no 
picture at all of our enemies, and 
some made very good looking Yania- 
craws. Frances Templin '47 had prob- 
ably the most artistic work but mis- 
sed being the winner because she 
did not quite complete it. The prize, 
and there was a prize, went to Charles 
Weltner '48. It is the only time in 
the history of education when every 
student got a different yearbook.

at the Atlanta Athletic Club, some 90 
people sat for ten minutes and stared 
at a box. 

The occasion was the annual Bas-

The Flying Petrel 



Dr. Agnew has just 
received a S2,000 
check from Bo^st-.-r 
Club treasurer 
James "Mac" Hen- 
derson. 




Among the dignitaries present were 
Dr. Donald C. Agnew, president and 
Dr. George C. Seward, vice-president 
of Oglethorpe, Mr. and Mrs. Virgil 
Milton and Mr. and Mrs. William 
Perkins, Oglethorpe trustees and their 
wives, several faculty members and 
the host of the evening, George Kolo- 
wich "43. 

Mr. Kolowich is president of the 
Denver-Chicago Truck Lines, one of 
the nation's major carriers. He is 
president of the National Industrial 
Basketball League this year, and he 
was co-chairman of the Denver Open 
Golf Tournament which was held in 
Denver this summer. 

During his short informal talk, Mr. 
Kolowich said, "There's a great thing 
about athletics. I would venture to say 
that not one Ail-American has had 
a taint of communism." 

Coach Garland Pinholster, conva- 
lescing from his second attack of 
mumps, could not attend the function. 
He spoke, in absentia, with the aid 
of the tape recorder. 

Coach Pinholster expressed his 
thanks to all who supported the Ogle- 
thorpe athletic program and especial- 
ly paid tribute to the team who "buck- 
led down everytime they were called 
to do so." 

In Pinholster's absence. Dr. Martin 
Abbott, professor of history and mem- 
ber of the faculty athletic committee, 
presented the letters. 

Receiving the big "O" were Roger 
Couch, Wayne Dobbs, Jay Dye, Bud- 
dy Goodwin, Johnny Guthrie, Sam- 
my Hudgins, Morris Mitchell, Bobby 
Nance, Tommy Norwood and Jay 
Rowland. 

The two managers. Bob Olson and 
Ken Borden, were also given letters. 

Trophies were presented by Dr. 
Agnew. The top award "Best Effort" 

July, 1960 



and "Best Free Throw Shooter" went 
to Roger Couch. 

The "Best Rebounder" and "Most 
Tap Ins" awards went to Jay Dye. 
only senior on the squad. 

Other trophies were earned by 
Dobbs, "Best Field Goal Shooter"; 
Goodwin, "Best Defensive Player"; 
and Norwood, "Most Ball Recover- 
ies." 

Special Booster Club awards were 
presented by Dobbs to Mr. Kolowich 
and Steve Schmidt, Booster Club pres- 
ident, for the exceptional interest and 
support they have given to the ath- 
letic program. Similar awards were 
announced for Wendell Crowe and 
Thomas A. Bartenfeld, who were not 
in attendance. 

L. "Pop" Crow, resident adminis- 
trator of the American Humanics 
Foundation, presented the cheerlead- 
ers' letters to Captain, Nancy Willi- 
ams, Charlotte Shirah, Pat Miller, 
Margaret Blank, Barbara Baughman, 
Amy Williams, Pat Griffin, Penny 
Wilson (now Loftin) and Dana Lou 
Howe. 

Nancy Williams, Charlotte Shirah, Pat 
Miller, Margaret Blank, Barbara 
Baughman, Amy Williams, Pat Grif- 
fin, Penny Wilson (now Loftin) and 
Dana Lou Howe. 

Mr. Crow, in turn, was given the 
"Best Faculty Fan" award, and Terry 
Ingerson received the "Best Student 
Fan" award. 

The Saints, seven man pep band, 
received the last of the 43 awards. 
This group probably caused the op- 
posing coaches more anxieties and 
ulcers than anything else, with the 
possible exception of the Petrels on 
the court. 

Letters were given to Dwight Bay- 
ley, Bob Booker, Capot Gupton, Bob 
Loftin, Ronnie Knopf, Jan Mundorff, 
Charles Teachey and Jack Warren. 



PETRELS FINISH SECOND 
IN GIAC BASEBALL 

Ihc 1960 edition of the Petrel nine 
came out on the top side of a 9-5 
season. Down four losses out of the 
first five games, the Birds snapped 
back to take the last eight of nine 
contests. Included among the early 
season losses were two by The Citadel 
and one at the hands of the Auburn 
Tigers. 

Oglethorpe was runner-up in the 
GIAC with an 8-2 record. Piedmont 
topped the conference hn the second 
consecutive year. 

The biggest disappointment this 
year has been the stick work. Only 
four regulars managed to bat higher 
than .200, which makes the record 
all the more remarkable. 

Morris Mitchell, nearly six and a 
half feet of natural athlete, led the 
team with a torrid .388 at bat. He 
paced the squad with 19 hits includ- 
ing three home runs, two triples and 
two doubles. 

Mitchell, a left-handed first base- 
man, earned a berth on the mythical 
All-Conference team. A freshman this 
year, the magnificent Mitchell has the 
earmarks of becoming a Petrel legend 
on the basketball court as well as on 
the diamond. 

Roger Couch, a junior fielder, fol- 
lowed Mitchell with the stick by hit- 
ting .302. He had 13 hits including 
two doubles and a triple. Couch was 
also runner up in the stolen bases de- 
partment with five. 

Johnny Guthrie, the Petrels' sec- 
ond man on the All-Conference 
squad, pitched and played outfield. 
He allowed a meager 1 .07 earned 
runs per game. 

Guthrie managed his bat real well, 
too. He stroked 13 hits in 48 at bats 
for a .271 average. He rapped four 
extra-base hits including two doubles 
and two homers, and he crossed the 
plate 12 times to top the team in that 
category. 

Prospects for next year are encour- 
aging. The squad will remain intact 
with the exception of one graduation 
loss, utility man Harold Adair. 

A dramatic rise in batting averages 
was shown in the last four games. 
The Birds scored 46 runs, or an aver- 
age of 1 1 .5 per game. 

Next year the Petrels will have the 
advantage of a landscaped diamond 
from the beginning. That and an ex- 
perienced team make the prospects
