DR. DONALD C. AGNEW
More than 100 Oglethorpe alumni
attended a dinner-dance at the Ansley
Golf Club on Wednesday evening.
October 9. Guests of honor were Dr.
and Mrs. Donald C. Agnew and Dr.
Ed Miles "27, Atlanta sports writer,
introduced guest speaker Harry Mehre,
also an Atlanta sports writer. During
his highly entertaining talk. Mr.
Mehre, a former University of Geor-
gia coach, recalled his 1929 football
team's defeat by the Oglethorpe
Petrels in their first game of the sea-
son. The following week the Bulldogs
became the first Southern team to de-
feat a major Northern power when
they downed Yale University.

Donald C. Agnew
l-arly in '5S our new President, Dr.
Donald C. Agnew, will assume his
duties at Oglethorpe on a full-time
basis, when he will terminate his po-
sition as Executive Secretary of the
Commission on Colleges and Uni-
versities of the Southern Association
of Colleges and Secondary Schools.
He has held that position since June,
Dr. Agnew"s experience includes
two years of high school teaching and
college teaching in Duke University
■iiininier schools, Winthrop College.
Lander College, Coker College and
Oglethoriie University. During his 1 5
years at Coker College he was suc-
cessively professor, registrar, dean
and president. After seven years as
president of Coker College he came
to Oglethorpe University as Chairman
of the Division of Community Service.
His teaching fields are educational
psychology and philosophy. He holds
an A.B. from Park College and M.A.
and PhD. degrees from Duke Uni-
Born in Denver, Dr. Agnew had his
early schooling in Delta, Colorado.

Many alumni have shown under-
standable concern iwer the resigna-
tion on September 1 of Dr. Donald
R. Wilson. The question they ask
most is. "Why did Dr. Wilson leave
after such a short time at Oglethorpe's
helm?" Perhaps they recall the simi-
larly short term of Dr. Bunting, The
average tenure of college presidents
is five years.
At first glance it would appear that
something may be amiss at Oglethorpe
or with these men. Neither is the case.
The trustees and staff of Oglethorpe
University are vitally interested in
getting top men to fill the president's
post. I he trustees obviously have done
a good job, for as soon as these men
became president industry's leaders
were drawn to them. They were offered
positions so financially attractive that
they could not refuse to accept.
Much has been written about the
immediate need for raising faculty
salaries and the fierce competition for
top teachers. This situation is both
true and critical. It also applies to
college presidents and other adminis-
trative staff members.
Many colleges have instituted alum-
ni campaigns to help alleviate this
condition. Until now, Oglethorpe has
tried to meet this problem alone. Last
year it was realized that outside help
was needed urgently. Consequently,
Oglethorpe, together with the other
eight accredited. 4-year, non-tax sup-
ported colleges formed the Georgia
Foundation for Independent Colleges.
(See other article in this issue on
progress of this organization.)
In addition, the NAAOU officers
were asked to establish an annual
"giving" campaign. The funds from
the campaign, which will begin in the
Spring, will be used directly and in-
directly to retain our excellent staff
and continue our academic eminence.
It is regretable that we could not

Dr. George Seward
Ask Industry Aid
Dr. George C. Seward, vice-presi-
dent of Oglethorpe University, and
representatives of Georgia's eight other
non-state supported, 4-year colleges,
visited some 300 business firms last
month to acquaint executives with a
new plan for "free enterprise in edu-
cation." These schools comprise the
newly formed Georgia Foundation for
Independent Colleges described in the
July, 1957 Flying Petrel.
Although most of the visitations
are over for the present school year.
Dr. Seward believes that industry will
contribute at least 5100,000 this year
to the support of independent colleges.
If this estimate holds, Oglethorpe's
share will approximate $10,000. The
distribution plan for funds collected
is that 60' , of all unrestricted gifts
will be shared by the nine institutions,
with the remaining 40' . prorated on
the basis of enrollment. This arrange-
ment does not prohibit the separate
schools from soliciting funds indi-

1957-58 Student Council
The Oglethorpe student body cre-
ated as much spirit and enthusiasm
during Campaign Week last May as
a South American revolution. Officers
for the 1957-58 Student Council were
to be elected and the campaigners
left no hoopla unhoopla-ed in their
efforts to get out the vote.
Backers of the hopefuls created
and displayed some one hundred
posters throughout the campus, boost-
ing their candidate. Presidential nomi-
nees presented their platforms to the
students from the auditorium stage.
One aspirant organized a bicycle-cade
in his behalf. Another made frequent
political speeches during class changes
via a public address system located
atop an automobile between Lupton
and Phoebe Hearst Halls.
When the smoke cleared, Ted Bay-
ley "58 was elected president of the
Student Council. Others elected to
office are: MacDonald Willis "60,
vice-president; Peggy Compton '58,
secretary; Tom Deacon "60, treasurer;
and Ina Foster '58, parliamentarian.
Ted Bailey "58 Attends
Ted Bailey 58, president of the
student body, attended a student pres-
idents" conference held at the Uni-
versity of Michigan in Ann Arbor
during the second week in September.
This was the first time one of our
presidents took part in a meeting of
this kind. Ted said he found the con-
ference most enlightening, and he be-
lieves several problems concerning
student affairs on the Oglethorpe
campus will be solved as a result of it.
members. "It is important,"" he added,
"that we undergird our private colleges
as centers of private enterprise with
freedom of thought and research,"'
The crux of the message spread by
Foundation members is that "free en-
terprise, independent of government
domination, is as important in edu-
cation as anywhere else."" Spokesmen
believe that industry"s response will
"mean the difference between quality
education and mediocrity in the pri-
vate institutions that serve a vital
role in Georgia.""

self-improvement, rather than the in-
tensive training programs so often
instituted by management. In this con-
nection, Mr. Egerton defined training
as the transfer of a particular skill or
knowledge, whereas development is
the growth of a human being; the one
you can do for another, the latter, only
each of us can do for himself.
The classical references with which
the discourse was illuminated, in the
opinion of one enthusiastic listener,

In his commencement speech to
the Oglethorpe graduating class in
August. 1957, Dr. Agnew described
the theme of the Oglethorpe curricu-
lum as the relationship between hu-
man understanding and the obligations
of citizenship and comnumity service.
He laid particular stress on four obli-
gations of the scholar in American
life: rigorous objectivity, creativity,
ethical commitment — establishing a
set of values about basic issues, and
the obligation of sanity in a world
in which it is popular to be insane.
In assiuiiing his new duties. Dr.
Agnew predicted a period of "vigor-
ous advancement" for Oglethorpe.
"Confidence in the sound future of
Oglethorpe University makes me par-
ticularly appreciate the honor of being

Dr. Martin Abbott, Division II, has
written an article entitled "The First
Shot at Fort Sumter" which was pub-
lished in the March, 1457 issue of
Civil War History. Dr. Abbott stales
that "lliis is an article which concerns
itself with the dispute which has per-
sisted through the years over the
question of whether the Virginian Ed-
iiuind Ruffin actually fired the 'first
shot of the Civil War'."
Dr. Abbott, who has dt)ne con-
siderable research on this period of
American history, and "using all avail-
able evidence from those who wit-
nessed the affair, comes to the con-
clusion that the first blow against Fort
Sumter on April 12. 1861, was struck
by someone other than Ruffin." This
conclusion, supported by strong argu-
ments, is opposed to that of the ma-
jority of textbooks now being used in

Mr. Rich, an Oglethorpe trustee, offers

iness and political leaders in recent
Mankind faces greater opportunities
for good than at any other time in his-
tory, an Atlanta business executive de-
clared here Thursday. But the oppor-
tunities for evil are equally great, he
Richard H. Rich, president of Rich's,
Inc., told an assembly of Georgia State
College students they are living in a
■"marvelous and unexplored universe."
"The opportunities ahead for both
good and evil are greater than at any
time since the beginning of civiliza-
tion." he said.
NEW DEVELOPMENTS in the
electronics, chemical and nuclear fields
offer "great new frontiers" for man-
kind, Mr. Rich predicted. But how they
are used will determine whether they
are blessings, he added.
"The atom is a gift of God," Mr.
Rich said. But it is up to the I'resent
generation to decide whether the atom
will create a "new earth" or a "ghastly
hell," he said.
Mr. Rich told the students he be-
lieves automation would be as import-
ant a development in the second half
of the 20th century as mass production
was in the first half.
Through the use of machines, fac-
tory work which required an hour in
1900 now requires only 23 minutes to-
day and will require only 15 minutes
in 1975, he said.
But the increased use of machines
won't mean more unemployment, he
"Instead, I believe the number of
jobs will increase," he declared. "Auto-
mation will increase the opportunities
for women because less physical
strength will be required."
MR. RICH URGED the students to
study "the science of human relations"
if they would be successful in the busi-
ness world. People are more important
than things and ideas are more import-
ant than gadgets, he said.
The human being is more important
"than anything anybody can make or
sell or buy," he declared.
Mr. Rich said finding a job he likes
should be the student's standard for
selecting a vocation. Select a job
where "you can make a game out of
work," one that gives you "a sense of
accomplishment" and "an inner glow,"
