ALUMNI GO OVER THE TOP 



Our goal was 960 donors to the 1961-62 Forward Oglethorpe Fund. We 
made it with some to spare. As of June 30th. the number of Oglethorpe Alumni 
donating to the Fund numbered 971 which is 34% of our total known alumni 
on the mailing lists. This percentage is 13°o over last year. The dollar total for 
this year is $28,998.45 which includes the balance due on pledges made during 
the fiscal year. We missed the dollar total by a little less than 810,000, but per- 
centage wise, the dollar total was 75' < of the goal. In comparison with last 
year, alumni donated S4, 02 1.06 more this year than in 1960-61. 

The awards given on Alumni Day last May went to the Class of 1957 for 
having the most contributing members. Class of 1929 which had the largest total 
contribution and the Classes of 1920, 1921 and 1930 which provided the highest 
percentages of donors.

OGLETHORPE IS HOST TO 
SWEDISH STUDENTS 

Approximately 40 students were 
the guests of Oglethorpe University 
over the 4th of July holiday. These 
students, all members of the Chalmers 
Techincal University in Sweden, are 
touring the United States this sum- 
mer. They are being sponsored by the 
Rotary Club, however, the entire itin- 
inary of the trip was planned by the 
students themselves. Oglethorpe was 
happy to have been included in their 
trip. 



PHILOSOPHER LEA} 'ES 
O. L. FOR NEW POSITION 

Dr. Stanley M Daugert, who has 
his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. from Co- 
lumia University, is leaving Oglethorpe 
to be the head of the Philosophy De- 
partment at Western Washington State 
College. 

When asked what he would miss 
most at Oglethorpe after his fifteen 
years at the University, he replied, 
"My colleagues and the students." Dr. 
Daugert, described as a "full-time 
Philosopher" by Dr. Agnew. has done 
much to make true the statement that 
"Oglethorpe has more philosophy per 
square foot than any other small col- 
lege campus."

SENATOR MORTON GIVES 
COMMENCEMENT ADDRESS 

The Honorable Thruston B. Mor- 
ton, U. S. Senator from Kentucky, de- 
livered the commencement address to 
the 1962 class of Oglethorpe. 

Senator Morton is probably best 
known as a former Chairman of the 
Republican National Committee, hav- 
ing served in that capacity from 1959- 
61. which covered the presidential 
campaign of 1960. He has also serv- 
ed as Assistant Secretary of State for 
Congressional Relations, U. S. Depart- 
ment of State, from 1953-56, and as 
a member of the 80th, 81st, and 82nd 
Congresses, as Representative from 
the 3rd District of Kentucky. He is 
an alumnus of Yale University and 
served as Lieut. Commander in the 
U. S. Naval Reserve durinc World 
War. II. 

In his address the Kentuckian call- 
ed upon business to support with their 
tax-deductablc donations the "good, 
quality liberal arts colleges in the 
South" such as Oglethopre University.

THE PRESIDENT'S CORNER 

In varying numbers, the years have 
passed since we as alumni went forth 
from Oglethorpe to embark upon our 
self-sustaining ways of life. 

To some, the era of college is a 
closed chapter and reunion and remini- 
scence looked upon as youthful regres- 
sion. 

To most, there are mixed emotions 
of pride, loyalty, and senimentality to- 
ward their alma mater that endured 
through the years. 

In weighing my own thoughts re- 
garding Oglethorpe, I have come to the 
conclusion that they are basically ob- 
jective. That is to say; I maintain a 
genuine belief in the "Oglethorpe Idea" 
and being an alumnus is of almost 
secondary consideration. There are 
trustees and friends of Oglethorpe who 
are not alumni, but with this very same 
belief, have whole-heartedly dedicated 
their services to this University. 

Quality education is of paramount 
importance today. Each citizen has 
obligations to the society in which he 
or she lives. Oglethorpe in its blend of 
cultural and techncial training devel- 
opes the qualities of leadership in its 
students.

FUND RAISING AND 
DEVELOPMENT AT 
OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

We are happy to report an anony- 
mous gift of $500,000 to be used for 
a new science building. The gift, which 
is from an out-of-state industrial firm, 
will be conditional upon our raising 
S500.000 for endowment and $500,- 
000 for the new library. 

Substantial progress has been made 
toward obtaining the funds for the 
building of the library. However, we 
will need the assistance of every 
alumni in order to achieve the goals 
set forth by President Agnew. 

The goal for the immediate short- 
range development program is 
$2, 500,000 from gifts which will in- 
crease the endowment by SI, 500,000. 
build both the library and the science 
buildings and put us in a position to 
borrow 51,500,000 for the construc- 
tion of two new dormitories, making a 
grand total for the short-range program 
of S4,000,000. The total development 
program over a period of the next ten 
years will have a goal of $8,000,000— 
SI 0,000,000 which will give Ogle- 
thorpe one of the most outstanding 
small college campuses in the country. 
Plus adequate endowment. 

The present plans are to increase 
the student population over a period 
of the next several years to a total of 
approximately 800 students, about half 
of which will be dormitory students, 
and the other half, day students. 

Whereas a good deal of effort and re- 
search will be placed on the larger po- 
tential donors, as always, a substantial 
part of the total in any campaign is 
:cured from those individual donors 
who feel they would like to have a real 
part in the progress of their Alma 
Mater, as well as from other friends of 
the University. 

We are also considering several pro- 
grams whereby a donor could give a 
gift and yet increase his estate in the 
amount of his gift. There are some 
exciting new developments in this field 
and we hope to have real news for you 
on this shortly. In the meantime, how- 
ever, remember there is no substitute 
for "cold cash." 

This challenge presents one of the 
truly great opportunities of our life- 
time to benefit future generations. 

We must accept the challenge and 
move forward into the expansion and 
progress which destiny has decreed 
for Oglethorpe University.

REMINISCING WITH THE 
WENDELL BROWNS 

Oglethorpe's loss this year of two 
Old Timers from its faculty makes 
us recall those who have left us in the 
past but not before they had left their 
mark on the school and made Ogle- 
thorpe a stronger institution. 

The first of these to go was one 
of the forgers of the present Ogle- 
thorpe, Gcrhart Niemeyer. He came 
with the writers in 1944. and in his 
six years here became the most hated, 
the most loved, and the most re- 
spected member of the group. Who 
among those in his classes will ever 
forget the Spirit of the Ages and its 
time chart? Now he holds the chair 
of political science at Norte Dame. 

Two years later, to assist him, 
came Edgar Vallette, one of Ogle- 
thorpe's own, since 1950 in the Fed- 
eral Reserve Bank; and John Gold- 
thwaite, also an alumnus, to teach 
English. He is now on the faculty of 
the University of California and is 
at present in Germany. 

Next to leave was that extraordi- 
nary teacher, George Marion O'Don- 
nell, of whom we wrote in the last 
issue of the Petrel, died last January. 

We remember with affection W. 
A. L. (Lindsey) Coulborn, the most 
colorful professor of our time. An 
Englishman, hired sight unseen to 
teach economics (that dismal science), 
he arrived from England the 
formal and formidable professional 
Englishman complete with accent 
and waxed moustache. It is alleged 
that the first year students ran scream- 
ing from his classes. Nevertheless, the 
science ceased to be dismal, and many 
a student too far from home to spend 
Thanksgiving with his people found 
a turkey dinner and a friend in the 
professor's lodgings. He has now, 
since last year, returned to England 
as Head Master of a preparatory 
school. 

And now, this year, we have lost 
two pillars of faculty strength, Arthur 
Cohen and Stanley Daugert. They 
have been with us fourteen years, and 
their joint departure to the State of 
Washington is a blow that makes us 
reel. Arthur Cohen, a biologist of in- 
ternational reputation, willingly spent 
his time and wide interests in the 
help of any promising, or even just 
interested, undergraduate — a rare 
thing in these days when graduate 



schools are pushing undergraduates 
back into the class of high school 
students. He heads a microbiology 
laboratory at Washington State Uni- 
versity, Pullman, Washington. 

And Stanley Daugert, with his ang- 
ular limbs the target of every stunt 
night, leaves us taking his many talents 
with him. Philosophical scholar, con- 
cert pianist, and campus spark plug, 
he shall be missed, he shall be missed. 
He goes to head the philosophy depart- 
ment at Western Washington College, 
Bellingham, Washington. 

All of these have had or will have 
replacements but will never be re- 
placed. There will be new faces with 
new virtues, but the old will not come 
again. We who have shared these years 
with all of you cry with a note of sor- 
row Ave atque vale. 



DR. COHEN TO LEAVE 

Dr. Arthur L. Cohen, an interna- 
tionally known biologist, who did his 
his undergraduate work at Stanford 
University, then went to Harvard 
where he received his M.S. and Ph.D., 
and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. 

Dr. Cohen came to Oglethorpe in 
1947, when he established an excellent 
biology program and revived a new 
research center in Faith Hall. Dr. 
Cohen did such notable work in the 
problems of development that he was 
asked to write an article for the Ency- 
clopedia Britanica dealing with my- 
xomycetes. The Public Health and Na- 
tional Science Foundations awarded 
him several large grants which include 
two electron miscroscopes and almost 
an entire lab full of research equip- 
ment. 

Dr. Cohen will be director of the 
Electron Microscopy laboratory and 
will have an associate professorship in 
biology at Washington State Univer- 
sity.

The Flying Petrel 



OGLETHORPE BASEBALL 
1962 SEASON 

The year 1962 for the Oglethorpe 
baseball team was the season of a new 
coaeh and Tommy Norwood and the 
two of them fashioned a 14-6 record, 
very respectable indeed for the caliber 
of competition. 

The Petrels didn't make it to the 
play-offs, but they left their notices, 
especially Norwood who engraved his 
in the national figures of the parent 
organization, the National Association 
of Intercollegiate Athletics. 

Coach Billy Carter, in his first year 
as head baseball coach, took a group 
of boys weak at the plate, but strong 
in the field and mashed them together 
to beat such teams as David Lipscomb. 
Pfeffier. St. Bernard, Mercer, and 
Union. 

Only three Petrels batted over the 
coveted .300 target — Norwood at 
.463, Jay Rowland. .353. and Larry 
Abner, a freshman, .341. All others 
were down in the low .200's. 

Pitching, however, was much better. 
Johnny Guthrie and Bobby Sexton, a 
newcomer to the baseball wars at 
Oglethorpe, finished high in the na- 
tional standings. Guthrie was 5-1 with 
a 2.16 ERA average. Sexton was 4-1 
with a 2.13 ERA reading. Roy Cow- 
art was 4-2, Ben Hargrove, 1-0, and 
Norwood, 0-2. 

This was also the year of personal 
sacrifice. The sacrifice of Norwood, 
who scored 32 runs, batted in 36. had 
six home runs and 38 hits. 

Norwood, as a senior, was being 
scouted every game by the major lea- 
gue scouts. Oglethorpe, however, need- 
ed a catcher. Norwood was being 
scouted as an infielder. 

"I went to Norwood." Coach Carter 
said, "and explained the situation to 
him. He knew we needed a catcher 
and he knew he was the only boy on 
the squad who could handle the job. 
I asked him to catch and Tommy, for- 
getting all the scouts and all of his 
personal glory, jumped at the chance." 

Norwood turned out to be a tremen- 
dous college receiver. And at the end 
of the school year he signed a profes- 
sional bonus contract with the Phil- 
adelphia Phillies. They sent him to 
Williamsport of the Class A Eastern 
League where he played first string 
shortstop until he injured a knee in 
early July. 

Norwood was the 1 3th best bat- 
ter in the NAIA. was eighth in runs- 
batted-in, sixth in home runs, and 
19th in runs scored. 







V 



Morris Mitchell scores lor Oglethorpe in game 
with Union College. 

As a team, the Petrels were in pitch- 
ing with a combined 2.66 ERA 
average, and 17th in team fielding 
with a .939 average, making just 5<X 
errors in 349 attempts and 549 put- 
outs. 

There were several outstanding 
performances turned in by the Petrels 
during the season. 

The first game of the season Ben 
Hargrove faced Kalamazoo and al- 
lowed just three hits while his team- 
mates battered the visitors from the 
North for 13 runs. 

Then Sexton and Hargrove got to- 
gether against Wheaton and allowed 
those folks just two hits as the Petrels 
won. 3-2. Guthrie had three excellent 
games on the mound. Guthrie and 
Sexton held Shorter to three hits as 
the Petrels won. 15-2 on 19 hits, in- 
cluding five by Norwood. Guthrie held 
Mercer to two hits and gained a 4-3 
victory and then he finished the sea- 
son with a 6-2 decision over Union, 
allowing just six hits. 

The Petrels were in double fig- 
ures several times, scoring 12 against 
David Lipscomb. 13 against Pfeffier. 
17 against Berry, 10 against St. Ber- 
nard, 15 against Shorter, and 20 
against Piedmont. 

The Petrels lost one game to a 
Southeastern Conference opponent. 
Kentucky, renewing an old-time ri- 
valry with the Wildcats. They lost, 
6-0, but played a very fine game. 

Norwood. Guthrie, and Rowland 
have uraduated. The rest of this 1962 



team will be back as well as a few 
rookies. There will be a catcher on 
hand, Jim Hartlage. who would have 
handled the duties behind the plate had 
he not been injured in pre-season 
work, returns. 

Coach Carter will be in his sec- 
ond year. His hit-and-run, good de- 
fensive tactics will be in evidence. 
They were successful this season and 
there is no reason to think they won't 
he in the future. And perhaps there 
will be some slugger to come along 
to replace Norwood. 

Morris Mitchell has another year. 
He didn't hit any homers this past 
season, but he is capable of sending 
the ball into orbit. 

The future looks bright. These 
modern Petrels have a great baseball 
heritage to follow. Names such as 
Frank Anderson and Luke Appling 
come to mind quickly when one men- 
tions Oglethorpe University. 

These men of the sixties have their 
work cut out for them. 



PRESIDENT S CORNER 

(Continued from Page 2) 

The very fact that this is an in- 
dependent, non sectarian college gives 
it freedom of movement and develop- 
ment in changing times, with the basic 
proposition of "making a life as well as 
a living" remaining the same. The 
faculty and administrators are dedi- 
cated men and women. The school is 
endowed with sufficient land on which 
to build and it is located in a city of 
dynamic growth. 

During the next five years, you will 
see development at Oglethorpe thai 
will be the greatest leap forward in its 
history. You will feel a compelling 
desire to be a part of this growth and 
the college that you build lor the 
future will stand as a symbol of your 
own gratifying experience. 



NORWOOD SIGNS 
BASEBALL CONTRACT 

Tommie Norwood, who made 
basketball and baseball history here 
at Oglethorpe, has signed a bonus 
contract to play baseball for the 
Class A Williamsport team in the 
Eastern League. 

Norwood has been assigned a 
position as shortstop on the team.
