Board of Directors of the Atlanta Coca

Anything for Alumni — The sun rose brightly on Alumni Day, but torrential rains during the
four previous days left the baseball diamond somewhat damp. Quick thinking Coach Pinholster
ordered the pictured helicopter. It hovered over the infield for forty-five minutes and dried it
out sufficiently so that the Petrels could play a double-header with the Citadel.

was ideal. The sun rose bright on a
nearly cloudless sky. A slight breeze
wafted over the campus throughout the
day, and before dusk, a delicious cool-
ness settled on the smorgasbord area.
People-wise it was better. Hundreds
of alumni visited the campus, and class
representation was better balanced than
on any Alumni Day in recent years.
For example, five members of the
class of "20 were present.
Since, Alumni Day, your officers
and directors have met twice in month-
ly meetings. The organization of the
years activities have been completed
and many arrangements are underway.

A THING CALLED PRIDE
There's a thing called pride. Witii-
out it a person doesn't amount to much.
Pride in family, pride in job, pride in
possession, pride in accomplishment is
the thing that makes life worth living.
Pride is what makes us all a little better
than we think we can be. And pride is
what makes a school great.
1 wish you could see the pride the
students have for Oglethorpe Uni-
versity. They are proud of their athletic
teams, and that pride has made the
teams better than they are, because the
players feel it, too. They are proud of
their campus and the campus
warrants pride. They keep it
far prettier than when you and I were
in school. They are proud of the
faculty, and that's understandable be-
cause Oglethorpe has one of the finest
faculties of any school in the country.
And the students are proud of their
school because Oglethorpe University
of today is a bustling, growing, proud
I wonder if you realize just how big
a part the alumni — you — have played
in helping to establish this pride that
is so evident at Oglethorpe. You have
a far greater part than you think. Your
contributions — monetary and other-
wise — have been wonderful.
And, speaking of pride, when the
Forward Oglethorpe Fund goal was set
for last year (which, incidentally, was
three and a half times more than the
preceding year) the trustees said the
alumni wouldn't do it. We said you
would, and you sure made those of us
who work actively with the Alumni
Association proud. And like I said, a
job isn't worth doing unless you have

educators studied Oglethorpe's cur-
riculum. At the time, it was unique.
According to Mr. Montgomery, it
evoked the consensus comment, "There
is no finer college anywhere in the
United States than Oglethorpe".
Active in many major Atlanta civic
projects, Mr. Montgomery is perhaps
most proud of his part in setting up
the first pathological laboratory at

The Flying Petrel
The Development Corner
By Norman B. 1 homson
Director of Development
The pressing need for operating casli
in most universities and colleges has
influenced them to adopt crash pro-
grams for immediate dollars. In doing
so, they have lost sight of long-range
needs and objectives.
Oglethorpe, through the years, has
constantly felt the press of immediate
dollars and overlooked the significance
of stimulating the very area which,
historically, has made institutions
Studies in money sources for col-
leges show that 80'; of the assets of
such institutions have come from de-
ferred gifts such as bequests under wills
and living trusts. If, during the past
twenty years, Oglethorpe had been ac-
tively seeking wills and trusts, the as-
sets of our Alma Mater today would
have been multiplied many times.
At the first meeting of the Develop-
ment Committee held this Spring. Mr.
Richard Loughborough. Trust Officer
of the Fulton National Bank in At-
lanta, stated that he was aware of
S3,(KK),0()0 ear-marked for Oglethorpe
in the Trust Department of his bank.
Last week a trust officer of the Na-
tional Bank of Atlanta reported that
one of the wills recently filed with his
bank included a gift to Oglethorpe of
several hundred thousand dollars.
Several of our alumni in responsible
positions as attorneys, certified public
accountants and bankers mention the
privilege of tax-saving gifts to Ogle-
thorpe when discussing carefully inte-
grated, modern estate plans with their
The income from endowment in-

Mrs. MacConnell. ten scars in her
present position, was referriiig to the
552 warm-weather students wlio flock-
ed to Oglethorpe this summer. They
included regular Oglethorpe students,
transient students, in-service teachers
and high school students taking re-
fresher courses in English and math.
The preference for an Oglethorpe
education is increasing. This fall, en-
rollment is expected to top 400, up
from 361 last year. Classroom and
library space is at a premium, and
apartments adjacent to the campus
have been rented to add room for
women who wish to live at college.
A women's residence hall is urgently
needed. It is hoped that a new one will
be available for use in the fall of 1462.

REMINISCING WITH THE
THE POPULATION EXPLOSION
At the present writing, the Admis-
sions Office is working overtime to
handle applications, place worthy pros-
pects, say "no' in a gentle voice, and —
Oglethorpe has been hit, along
with'other colleges, by the Baby Boom.
Rumor has it that the starting number
will be better than four hundred. If this
is so, the finishing number will be con-
siderably less taking into account
those who will be trampled to death
in the halls. The dormitories are full;
girls who had to have space have been
turned down for some months.
Time was when no such problems
beset us. At our arrival in 1944, of the
seven buildings now on the campus,
three did not exist, and, during that
year, we occupied only two of the
others, the present Hearst and Lupton
Halls. Lupton then, as now housed the
administration offices and the library.
The second floor had classrooms; the
third was empty, Hearst, then called
the Administration Building, had its
name changed to Arts, because we set
up a gallery on the first floor. Actually
there were more chemistry labs there,
unused, than anything else. The second
and third floors were our dormitories
— four boys and a house mother on
the second and four girls with some
bats and a stray owl on the third.
Lowry was unoccupied, and Faith was
a shambles from a recent fire.
School started with thirty-five stu-
dents, at least they said they were stu-
dents, but ten changed their minds by
Christmas, leaving perhaps (and we
hope) the all-time low of twenty five
to sit under eight faculty members.
The next year there were fifty, most
of whom stayed on. And the third year,
when enrollment approached a hun-
dred, we remember a complaint from
Joe Brown '49, "The place is just get-
ting too large. It's lost that cozy family
quality it used to have."
And it continued to. Back came the
G.I.'s. A temporary barracks was
moved from old Fort Lawson to make
boys' dormitory space along with the
third floor of Lupton and the second
and third floors of Lowry. The girls
occupied all of Arts above the first
floor. A temporary chemistry building
was donated by the government. The
enrollment climbed above two hundred
and approached the peak we desired,
285, all we could reasonably handle.

The Flying Petrel
The 1461 edition of the Storms Pe-

best won-lost records in Oglethorpe's
history with a 14-3 chart. The effort
was good enough to give the Petrels
the NAIA 25th district championsiiip.
a duplication of the basketball team's
While a solid team performance was
evident throughout most of the year,
Tom Norwood was the stickout per-
former. Norwood played in every game
as pitcher or short stop or both. He led
the hurlers with six wins and one loss,
and socked a fabulous .491 with the
stick. Fast, and somewhat erratic, Nor-
wood struck out 56 batters while walk-
ing 50. He set the team pace in runs
(26) and hits (32) and came in second
in doubles (5), home runs (6| and
stolen bases (9).
He has had many offers to play
professional ball since his high school
days, but Tom has wisely decided to
complete his college education first.
He will be a senior next year. After
graduation, he may decide to give pro
ball a flang.
Bobby Dalgleish. southpaw pitcher
and center fielder, won 5 games and
lost two. He followed Norwood in bat-
ting with .394. including 24 runs. 26
hits, seven doubles, one triple and one
homer. He also led in stolen bases with
10. The Petrel pitcher-batter combina-
tion seems to be contagious and pro-
Morris Mitchell was the clean-up
batter. "Motor", a 6'6" left-handed
first baseman, slammed nine home runs
and three doubles to push in 29 runs.
He collected 24 hits in 61 at bats for
a .393 average. Other .300 or better
batsmen were Wayne Dobbs (.333),
