NOV. 1967 



OGLETHORPE CHEER 




We've finally got it! It's always been 
around but now the Petrels finally have a 
whole group of leaders for it. At the 
first basketball game, December 2, with 
Wilmington, the Stormy Petrels will be 
spurred on by a new cheerleading squad, a 
pep band, and a group of dancers. The pep 
groups, formed at the beginning of the 
year, are largely a result of the efforts 
of Coach Billy W. Carter to channel that 
school spirit into organized noise-making 
at the games. 

The cheerleaders, a group of seven girls 
from all over the country, were chosen on 
the basis of pep, spirit, coordination, 
and tumbling skill. They were selected 
from a group of 14 who tried out. Judges 
were Coaches Carter and Norwood, Barbara 
Beggs and Helen Epstein, cheerleaders on 
last year's squad, and Doug Alexander 
representative of the basketball team. 
Toni Chamberlain, captain of this year's 
group, said the girls have been practicing 
a couple of hours a day since mid October. 




They have 10 basic cheers, most of them 
new this year, which will be printed in 
the program for the first game. Toni said 
the girls are beginning to look and sound 
pretty good. She just hopes the crowd, 
which we all expect to be a big one, will 
be behind them. 

The 14-piece band, which is as yet un- 
named, is a bigger project than the 
"Saints" of a few years ago. Elmer "Mat" 
Mattson, band leader, stated that the 
group might use the "Saints" name but xt 
will attempt to have more functions than 
the previous group. The band will play at 
all basketball games, hopes to have an 
outdoor concert later in the year, and an- 
ticipates the possibility of being the 
precursor of a regular college band for 
the school. 

At pre-games and half-time the basket- 
ball fans will be entertained by what 
everyone is calling "The Ogo Girls." This 
is not the official title as yet for the 
four agile young ladies, but it looks as 



if tney're tagged with it for a while. 
This group is a totally new addition to 
the spirit-makers for Oglethorpe. 

Steve White is the coordinator of all 
three of the school spirit sets and SGA is 
their sponsor. Looks as if we've got an- 
other enthusiastic student body for this 
season, doesn't it? 

TRIPLE TREAT! 

The Alumni Association and the Booster 
Club cordially invite you to attend a Go 
Petrels! Openhouse, the Pep Rally-bonfire, 
and the first basketball game of the year 
(v.s. Wilmington) on December 2. The open- 
house, to be held in the lounge of Alumni 
Hall, will begin at 6:00 p.m. Come and 
visit with old friends over coffee and 
cookies, get to see the new men's dormi- 
tories, then yell for victory at 7:00 p.m. 
at the bonfire, and then we'll top it off 
by sitting together in our own alumni 
cheering section at the game. Don't miss 
it. It'll be a fun-filled evening. 



ALUMNI FETED AT RECEPTION 

We couldn't have asked for a lovelier 
gold-leafed October Sunday to have the 
alumni visit the home of President and 
Mrs. Vonk. We had a good crowd all after- 
noon, and it seemed that time flew by to 5 
o'clock before guests were ready to say 
goodby to old classmates and faculty mem- 
bers. The mild humor of Steve Schmidt and 
the "sparkle" of Edithgene Sparks were 
still going strong at 5:10 and Coach Billy 
Carter was still giving sports reports to 
his old players all the way out to his 
car. 




STUDENT ARMY TRAINING CORPS PLANS REUNION 

During the summer of 1918, in the time 
of the country's need, the resources of 
Oglethorpe were placed at the service of 
the government. A Student Army Training 
Corps was formed in which 232 young men 
were enrolled. The courses of study were 
modified to suit the new conditions. Thi.; 
work continued for about three months when 
the end of the war made it no longer nec- 
essary and the SATC was demobilized (De- 
cember 5, 1918) . Some of the young men 
returned to Oglethorpe for their degrees, 
but due to economic conditions most were 
unable to do so. 

Recently several members of this group 
have expressed an interest in having a re- 
union of the SATC. The tentative date for 
the reunion is middle or late February, 
possibly in the Student Union. Contacting 
the members, however, is an extremely dif- 
ficult task. If you were a member of the 
SATC or know of those who were here in 
1918, please contact the chairman of the 
reunion committee, Mr. Henry C. Baldwin, 
Class of 1918, 401 Standard Building, 
Atlanta, Georgia 30303.

the Theatre 

The Oglethorpe Players have started re- 
hearsal of a three-act play, "Robinson," 
to be presented in December. Director 
Dr. Robert Fuscillo, who has the American 
rights to the play, said this will be the 
first time "Robinson" has been presented 
on the American stage. The drama is writ- 
ten in verse, a product of Jules Super- 
veille — in Fuscillo 's opinion, "one of the 
most important poets France has produced." 
The translation being used by the Players 
is by British poet Patrick Dickinson. The 
original production of "Robinson" was done 
by the Royal Shakespeare Theatre Company 
in London. Alumni are invited to attend 
the play. There will be no admission. 
For information call Dr. Fuscillo 461-1441.
