Dr. Agnew Accepts New Position 




Dr. Donald C. Agnew, president of 
Oglethorpe University, has resigned his 
office to accept a newly created posi- 
tion with the Southern Association of 
Colleges and Schools. Dr. Agnew will 
be the director of a multi-million dollar 
project to improve Negro education. 

The association will receive grants 
from a number of national foundations 
to carry out the educational effort. 

It envisions the establishment of a 
number of "centers" in the Southeast- 
ern states. These centers would work 
at all levels of education, from ele- 
mentary schools to graduate studies. 

Dr. Agnew will begin work in his 



new position immediately, but will re- 
main Oglethorpe president until a suc- 
cessor has been named. 

Formerly president of Coker College 
in Hartsville, South Carolina, Dr. Ag- 
new has worked with educational in- 
stitutions throughout the South and in 
a variety of capacities with the South- 
em Association. 

During his six years at Oglethorpe, 
the college has trippled its enrollment, 
improved the physical plant, increased 
faculty salaries and benefits, completed 
a comprehensive self-study, developed 
an overall plan for development, in- 
creased alumni support tenfold, im- 
proved the quality of the school's of- 
fering by continuous restudy of the 
curricular offerings. 

In speaking of Oglethorpe, Dr. Ag- 
new states: 'This is a fine college, with 
a very competent faculty, a wise vice- 
president in Dr. George Seward, an 
unusual and effective curriculum, a 
high quality student body, a growing 
alumni support, a Board of Trustees 
with increasing sense of responsibility. 
I have every confidence in its future, 
and pledge whatever support I may 
be able to give. I am glad that I can 
continue to live in the Oglethorpe com- 
munity and I will watch the inevitable 
progress of the college with great per- 
sonal interest".

Mr. Hanson Receives Grant 

Duane F. Hanson, Head of the Art 
Department of Oglethorpe University 
and an Atlanta sculptor, has just re- 
ceived a S2,000 grant by a Harvard 
University trust fund as financial as- 
sistance in the experimental use of 
synthetic resins and other space-age 
materials. 

The trustee of the Ella Lyman Cabot 
Trust, Inc. awarded the grant to Han- 
son who has completed several re- 
liefs for buildings in Atlanta some of 
which are the Tech Motel, Oglethorpe 
University Field House and the Lovett 
School. He is currently working on 
several new works to be erected in this 
area soon. 

Hanson received his training in 
sculpture from Cranbrook Academy of 
Art and snent seven years teaching and 
exhibiting in Germany before coming 
to Atlanta in 1960. 

"These materials seem to symbolize 
this age of the cosmonaut, interplanet- 
ary missiles and atomic energy," says 
Hanson. I also believe that since sculp- 
ture is by tradition a public art, its 
proper place should be integrated with 
architecture or placed in relationship 
to buildings or the landscapes. Sculp- 




James M. Stafford, Jr., ('24) has been 
awarded the 1963 Advertising Federa- 
tio nof America-Printers' Ink Silver 
Medal Award by the Advertising 
Round Table of Kansas City. The an- 
nual award, administered by AFA and 
Printer's Ink, is presented "for out- 
standing contributions to the advertis- 
ing industry." 

Stafford was a member of the adver- 
tising department of Georgia Power 
Company for 21 years, following his 
graduation from the Harvard Business 
School in 1925. He has served as di- 
rector of advertising and publicity for 
Kansas City Power & Light Company 
since December, 1946, and was named 
to the newly-created position of direc- 
tor of public information in August of 
last year. 

He has been as active in various 
Kansas City community affairs as he 
was in Atlanta before his move to Kan- 
sas City. He received the 1961 Aviation 
Man of the Year Award from the 
Chamber of Commerce for his work in 
promotion of local aviation. Stafford is 
a past president of the Kansas City 
Press Club and of the Pubhc Relations 
Society and a third-term member of the 
board of governors of the Advertising 
and Sales Executives Club. He served 
as public relations chairman for the 
1963 Heart of America United Fund 
Campaign. 

ture has a great future in America 
wherever building is going on." 

Mr. Hanson is married to the former 
Janice Roche who was an opera star in 
Europe. They have three children and 
reside at 2375 Woodleaf Lane, De- 
catur, Georgia. 



Founded in 1882 by 65 graduates 
of 8 colleges and universities, the 
AAUW's purpose was to increase ed- 
ucational opportunities for women and 
to enlarge the fields where these wom- 
en could put their training to use. To- 
day with over 155,000 members and 
1500 branches in 50 states, the District 
of Columbia, and Guam they still pur- 
sue their original purpose. Because of 
their number and work they sf)eak 
representatively for the American 
woman university or college graduate. 

AAUW's Fellowship program is de- 
signed to give financial aid to women, 
outstanding in their field, who wish to 
do research. The applicant must hold 
the doctorate or be an established, rec- 
ognized scholar in her field. There are 
forty-six fellowships ranging in value 
from three to five thousand dollars per 
year for American women. There is 
also a number of international fellow- 
ships open to women of other countries 
who wish to study or do research in 
the United States. 

The AAUW Educational Founda- 
tion sponsors a College Faculty Pro- 
gram which is designed to give mone- 
tary assistance to college graduates 
who want to return to school to pre- 
pare for teaching on the college level. 
The applicant must be at least thirty- 
five years of age and hold a bachelor's 
degree. The program is limited to resi- 
dents of: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, 
Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, 
North Carolina, South Carolina, Ten- 
nessee, Texas and Virginia. 

The roster of women holding ad- 
vanced degrees in a service to locate 
women for positions in teaching, re- 
search, administration and in higher 
education. It is a central intelligence 
agency of qualified women in numer- 
ous fields of endeavor. The roster 
offers a wider field of qualified person- 
nel than individual and sectional agen- 
cies or placement services. 

Realizing that learning and under- 
standing should continue to grow after 
a woman has left college, the AAUW 
has developed a study-action program 
for 1963-64. The topics under study 
are: Bridging the Gap Between Science 
and the Layman, The American Fam- 
ily in a Changing World, Occident and 
Orient, and Expectations for Educa- 
tion.

Education is a responsibility re- 
quiring that the individual be aware. 
Knowledge of legislation to be pro- 
posed and voted on is a duty of a good 
citizen. The AAUW at the national 
convention develops a legislative pro- 
gram which they support and closely 
watch the progress of throughout the 
year. 

Each branch develops its own pro- 
gram along the lines drawn by the 
National organization. The four pri- 
mary areas of interest covered are: 
Community Problems, World Prob- 
lems, Cultural Interest, and Education. 
In addition to these activities local 
AAUW groups support qualified wom- 
en candidates and support local legis- 
lation that furthers the aims of the 
AAUW.

name of the elementary school in 
Lithia Springs, Georgia renamed in her 
honor. It is now the Aimette Winn 
Elementary School. Mrs. Winn has 
been principal of the school since 
1946.

AMERICANA MOTEL 

8:00 A. M. 

JAMES S. PETERS 
SPEAKER 



On behalf of the Alumni we extend 
our gratitude of Dr. Donald Agnew 
for his outstanding work at Oglethorpe 
Univ. Under his leadership our school 
now has the largest student body in 
her history — over 600 with an ex- 
pected 800 in the near future. If cur- 
rent plans become reality we should 
soon see ground broken for even fur- 
ther expansion. Our best wishes go 
with this most capable leader. 

Where does Oglethorpe Univ. stand? 
What is her future? This affects each 
of us. It has been stated that our 
future is not a question of what hap- 
pened to us yesterday but where we 
are heading today. This applies di- 
rectly to our school and the answers 
are not always kind. One of our major 
problems lies with the alumni. There 
are far too many that can contribute 
to her success and don't. It has been 
heartening to see the increase in the 
number of alumni pitching in with his 
efforts — yet, Oglethorpe needs the 
help of those holding back. Our 
Alumni Fund Drive for 1963-'64 has 
approximately 4 mos. to go. To date 
it looks as if we may reach our goal 
and to those of you that have sent in 
your contribution our many thanks. 
Everyone connected with your As- 
sociation realizes the headaches con- 
nected with asking for money but 
these are overcome with the realization 
that its a must. 

Results of all our endeavors will be 
announced at the Annual Alumni 
meeting May 15th and 16th. Why not 
plan now to attend and see first hand 
what your school and school friends 
are doing? 



A graduate of Cochran High School 
Oglethorpe University and Emory Uni- 
versity, Mrs. Winn has a total of 37 
years of teaching experience. 

She was the Douglas County Teach- 
er of the Year in 1955, a member of 
ADK and president of the local unit 
of the Georgia Education Association, 
1962-63. 



$5,000 Gift 
to University 

A gift of $5,000 to the endowment 
funds of the college has been anounced 
recently. The gift is from the Charles 
A. Frueauff Foundation of New York.

Fund Drive Report 

Your "Forward Oglethorpe Fund" 
has been moving at a rather slow pace. 
Our progress is above anything that 
we have ever done to date, but this 
is far from our established goal. It is 
our hope that by Alumni Day, May 15- 
16th, we can report that the 1963-64 
Fund drive ended on schedule exceed- 
ing the goal. This can only be accom- 
plished if all our alumni who have not 
renewed their subscriptions to Ogle- 
thorpe and those who have never con- 
tributed, do so in the near future! 

If Oglethorpe University is to main- 
tain its present high standards and the 
status among the top institutions of 
higher learning, then we — the alumni 
— must take a more active financial 
interest in its operation. In 1963, we 
brought together many of the former 
senior class presidents. It was gratify- 
ing to see their response to the chal- 
lenge that we face in raising money 
for Oglethorpe. This is a job for all 
of us and if we all do our individual 
part, then success can be assured.

Oglethorpe Sports 



Although the Stormy Petrels of 
Oglethorpe have little worry of finish- 
ing this season with a winning record, 
nevertheless, will have great difficulty 
in finishing with a 20 win season as 
the past several years have been. At 
this point in the season, the team has 
proved to be one that seems to lack 
a steadiness and stableness in its play. 
On occasion everything has clicked to 
perfection. Yet, at other times erratic 
is the word to use in describing the 
team as they threw the ball away, 
played lax defense and generally look- 
ed bad. 

With all this has been added the 
difficulty of injuries to key members 
of the team. Junior guard Ray Thomas, 
a starter and key man from last year's 
champion team, has been laid up sev- 
eral times and at present is out be- 
cause of a bad leg. Billy Parker, who 
holds the Oglethorpe modern record 
for rebounds in a single game, has 
likewise been out on a couple of occa- 
sions. Walker Heard, 6-7 sophomore 
center, has been out once because of 
a bad elbow. Without making excuses, 
we can readily see the difference that 
this has made in the team. 

Yet with many difficulties, the team 
has played a fine year. They have 
come through with key wins at times 
and have played the brand of basket- 
ball that Oglethorpe is famous for. 
Since the last printing of this paper, 
the team has played 19 games, winning 
1 1 of these to raise their season's rec- 
ord to 13 wins and 9 loses. 

After their win over Troy State of 
Alabama in early December, the team 
played host to a very strong AAU 
team from the Phillips 66 Oil Com- 
pany. The Phillips team included 
several former college Ail-Americans 
including Jerry Shipp. Coach Pinhols- 
ter coached Shipp last year in the Pan 
American games and labeled him "the 
finest shooter I have ever seen." This 
particular game turned out to be one 
of the slowest of the season and very 
possibly in Petrel modem history. The 
home team finally bowed by a score 
of 32-22. The game was dominated 
by holding tactics on the part of both 
teams. 

The big game of the early part of the 
season came with the first meeting of 
the year with rival Georgia Southern. 
This year's meeting was particularly 
significant since it marked the begin- 
ning of a rivalry for the Georgia Small 




College Cup. This is a trophy which 
will be given to the winner of each 
successive Oglethorpe-Southern game. 
The winner of each game will keep the 
cup until the next encounter when the 
winner will take the cup home with 
them. 

This year the Petrels were fired up 
for the first win and were able to take 
it with a 76-60 win over the Eagles 
from Statesboro. The game was by no 
means an easy one, however, as no 
Southern game ever is. The winning 
margin is no indication of how the 
teams battled ou on even terms most 



of the game. It appeared that the 
Southern team was not quite on its 
best game as evidenced by the low 
31.9% that the team shot from the 
field. This is quite low for Coach J. B. 
Scearce's Eagles, even with a tight 
Petrel defense on their backs. The 
Petrels were led by Billy Parker with 
21 points and hit on a phenomenal 
85.7% from the field. 

The next encounter for Oglethorpe 
was in their traditional Invitational 
Tournament, held December 20 and 
21 at the Field House. Mississippi 
College, David Lipscomb College, and

Sewanee College were the participating 
schools along with Oglethorpe. 

In their first game with Sewanee, 
the Petrels were pressed all the way 
before they pulled away to a 60-58 win 
at the end. In the other opening game, 
Mississippi fought a hard pitched bat- 
tle with David Lipscomb to finally 
salvage the game 59-57. 

This left the Petrels to face Missis- 
sippi in the championship game. The 
game was played at 1:30 in the after- 
noon to allow for its being televised. 
This first game in history that was tele- 
vised at Oglethorpe unfortunately 
proved to be one of the least interest- 
ing of the season. It soon developed 
into a slowed down game of the caliber 
of the Phillips game and dragged to 
an enivitable end at 31-24 with Ogle- 
thorpe winning. The Mississippi, nor- 
mally a fast breaking team has aver- 
aged over 100 points per game in the 
past several seasons. In the O. U. tour- 
nament of two years ago they scored 
over 100 points in one game. Yet in 
this encounter, they chose to hold the 
ball. They did not lose possession of 
or even take a shot at the basket for the 
first 1 3 minutes of the second half. The 
Petrels, nevertheless ground out a mea- 
ger win to take the tournament crown 
for the fourth straight year. Sewanee 
took the consolation game and third 
place with a 97-85 win over David 
Lipscomb. 

With little vacation rest, the team 
journeyed to Lenoir Rhyne, North 
Carolina for their invitational tourney 
on December 27-28. After winning 
their initial game over East Carolina, 
the Petrels were unable to stop a come- 
from-behind effort and dropped the 
championship game in the closing min- 
utes by a 65-61 score. As at other 
times, the real problem seemed to be in 
getting rebounds. As the old adage 
goes, "You can't score without the 
ball." 

Following the tourney, the team 
journeyed again, this time to Green- 
ville, N. C. to face East Carolina. This 
second time the Atlanta team was not 
as hot and lost to the Tarheels 79-67. 
The apparent trouble came from two 
factors, East Carolina ball control, and 
poor free throw shooting for the Pet- 
rels.. While having trouble cracking the 
Pirate's zone, the team hit only 13 of 
22 chances at the free throw line, just 
a little over 50% . 

The next encounter was one with the 
Lima Athletic Club of Peru. This club 
was the Peru entry in the Olympics 
and played at Oglethorpe for the sec- 




ond time in three years. O. U. fans 
remembered the Duarte brothers, Ric- 
ardo, Rual, and Enrique who traveled 
with the team on their last trip. A 
much improved team took the floor 
against the Petrels after an exchange 
of flags from Peru and Dixie by the 
respective team members. Yet the 
Spanish speaking team could not cope 
with the superior experience of the 
Atlantans. They stuck with the Petrels 
until into the second half. At this point, 
they just seemed to run out of gas. 
The final score was 89-66, Ogle- 
thorpe's favor. 

One of the worst displays of the 
season was against Belmont Abbey of 
North Carolina on January 8. The 
Petrels could not seem to do anything 
right. The tarheel team, however, were 
able to capitalize on some good breaks 
and turn to win the game. As a team, 
Oglethorpe hit on a very small 22.8% 
from the floor as compared with 56% 
for the Abbeymen. Coach Al McGuire 
handled his less talented and experi- 
enced team with superb craftiness to 
pull out the win 44-35. 

Not to be downed, the team from 
Atlanta went out to win and came from 
behind all the way to win over Val- 
dosta State 57-55 in the last mmutes 
of the game. The Petrels scored 6 
points in the last 55 seconds, tieing 
the score with just 15 seconds left. 
Ray Thomas made the key basket as 
he drove the length of the court for 
a lay-in. Jimbo Hartlage led the team 



with his finest night with 23 points. 

Going against a tall and strong Chat- 
tanooga team on January 15, the 
Petrels played at their best to win 58- 
54. Playing under pressure all the way, 
the Atlanta quintet kept up the pace 
hitting on 52% from the floor and 
77.8% from the charity line to take to 
to victory. 

This game was a must-win for the 
Petrels if they hoped to gain an invi- 
tation to the NCAA post season tour- 
nament for small colleges as they did 
last year. The invitation in the south- 
em region is apparently going to one of 
three schools. Either Chattanooga, 
East Carolina, or Oglethorpe seem to 
be the logical choices for the invita- 
tion. Our beating Chattanooge would 
likely put us ahead of them, but we 
had split our games with East Carolina, 
one on a neutral court, and one on 
their court. 

The team handled a strong Jackson- 
ville team on January 1 8 staying ahead 
the whole way, but finally winning by 
forfeit rather than points. The Jack- 
sonville five were not hitting at their 
best and ended the game with only 
35.7% from the floor. At the half the 
score was 45-30 in favor of Ogle- 
thorpe. Jacksonville's coach had made 
repeated verbal comments to the ref- 
erees about their calls and was ob- 
viously upset over the way things were 
going. In the second half, he was quite 
upset over a call and sent his team 
to the dressing room. One of the ref- 



Page 6 



March 1964 



erees thought that Jacksonville was 
quitting and declared the game forfeit 
in favor of Oglethorpe with the score as 
it was. The team then came back arid 
the coach said he was only showing 
them plays on the blackboard. But at 
that point it was too late and the game 
was over with Oglethorpe winning 61- 
46. 

Keeping up their recent spurt, the 
Petrels moved to Cullman, Alabama, 
for a return match with St. Bernard. 
The team came through once again 
under pressure, hitting 66% from the 
field to win 73-68 in a close game. Ray 
Thomas and Captain Bobby Sexton 
led the team with 20 points apiece. 
Guard Bobby Dalgleish collected 15 
points. 

On January 23, the Petrels had lit- 
tle trouble handling a tall but inex- 
perienced team for Florida Presbyter- 
ian College. Bill Garrigan, sophomore 
guard from Pennsylvania took over for 
injured Ray Thomas and hustled the 
team to a 71-55 win. Garrigan poured 
in 16 points, 12 in the first half to 
put his team in the lead and played an 
aggressive defense to spark the team 
to the win. 

The journey of the team to Alabama 
to face Troy State was not as profit- 
able as many would have liked. The 
Petrels lost by two points in an over- 
time as Troy guard Tom Whitehurst 
hit on a last-second jump shot to win 
the game. Bobby Sexton did his best, 
collecting 31 points and 12 rebounds 
to lead both teams, but it wasn't quite 
enough as the Atlanta team lost 70- 
68. 

Bouncing right back, the team de- 
feated St. Bernard for the second time 
of the year. Although the team seemed 



somewhat erratic, they were still too 
much experience and talent for the 
Alabamians. Oglethorpe had trouble 
stopping the Bernard fast break, but 
Bill Garrigan again added the spark 
and the team walked away with a 75- 
56 win. 

Looking objectively at the remain- 
der of the season, post season bids 
do not look too likely. The Petrels 
dropped their last three games. Two 
of these. East Carolina, and Jackson- 
ville were close. The other, against 
Centenary College of Louisiana, was 
hardly a contest. The Petrels were no 
match for the tall talent of the team 
that defeated Loyola of New Orleans, 
Mississippi, and Texas Tech. 

The East Carolina game was a cru- 
cial one, the rubber match which the 
team lost by a hair, 64-61 on their 
Homecoming. Against Centenary, the 
score was 86-63. Two slim sopho- 
mores, Barrie Haynie and Larry Shoe- 
maker tore the nets all night, hitting 
31 and 25 points respyectively. At 
Jacksonville, the team lost a narrow 
one 82-79. Sexton again led the way 
with 23 points and 9 rebounds, but 
it was not enough. 

The Petrels now have four games 
left on their schedule. Two tough ones 
away with Chattanooga Southern will 
be followed by two comparatively easy 
ones at home with Valdosta State and 
Piedmont. 

All four of these are critical if there 
is to be any possibility of after season 
play for the Atlanta team. This is the 
critical and crucial part of the season 
when the team needs all the support it 
can get. We hope to see you at the 
last two home games. Let's show the 
team we're proud of all their efforts 
this year. They've done a fine job.
