The elections occurred during the

About 250 alumni and friends of

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-

ALUMNI TO HELP
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
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
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
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

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
1. To build a stable basis of finan-
2. To plan a long range develop-
3. To increase teacher salaries
4. To improve the physical plant
5. To support some phases of cur-
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-
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-

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-

RECIPE FOR LIVING
Could this be your recipe for good
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

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.

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.

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
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.

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
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 —
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
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

books, black enamelled the covers.

johnny-come-latelies, turned his many
talents to taking pictures of individ-

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-

PETRELS FINISH SECOND
IN GIAC BASEBALL
Ihc 1960 edition of the Petrel nine
came out on the top side of a 9-5

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
Oglethorpe was runner-up in the
GIAC with an 8-2 record. Piedmont

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
Mitchell, a left-handed first base-
man, earned a berth on the mythical

lowed Mitchell with the stick by hit-

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
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
for 1961 look bright.
