Corporations Help Alumni
Give Two for One
Many Oglethorpe University alumni
have the opportunity of giving twice
as much money as before for the sup-
port of the NAAOU program with no
additional personal expense. This
seeming paradox is the result of the
Corporate Alumnus Giving Program
which some 40 American corporations
now have in effect to help institutions

The Program, established by Gen-
eral Electric Co., consists of corpora-

least 200 alumni, double the number last year, are expected to attend.
The first function of this type was
held at the Ansley Golf Club where ca-

which Dr. Cohen has carried on at
Oglethorpe for several years under the
auspices of the American Cancer So-

Inquiries from high school seniors
showing an interest in Oglethorpe are
some 300 per cent over last year at
this time. It now appears that dormi-
tory space may not meet the demand
for the coming year.
Specific information about entrance
into Oglethorpe is being given at "col-
lege days" in high schools in Georgia,
Florida, North Carolina, and South
Carolina during the Fall Quarter. In-
formation bulletins are made available
at these meetings or will be mailed up-
All requests should be directed to
Dean George C. Seward, Oglethorpe
University, Ga. His office can be
reached by telephone at CE 3-6772.
A student National Education Asso-
ciation has been organized at Ogle-
year for prospective
Frequent seminars will be held at
which teaching problems and their so-
lutions will be aired.
The first seminar consisted of a
panel discussion, on October 17, with
Oglethorpe professors taking part. They
explained the ideals of education and
the Oglethorpe Plan.
BODY IS TOPS
Scholastically, Oglethorpe Universi-
ty has the strongest student body it has
had in many years, perhaps stronger
than it has ever had.
This situation has been brought
about by a strict enforcement of higher
admission standards for the past two
As a result of this policy, classes
are livelier, and the school spirit of
faculty members and students is higher.
Our students take pride in the fact
that Oglethorpe now has one of the
toughest admissions standards in the
State of Georgia.
As we expected, our total enrollment
has decreased during this same span
of years, even though applications for
admission have risen considerably.
This year, we accepted approximately
two of every three applicants.
In previous issues of THE FLYING
PETREL you have read of our plans
for expansion. We are pointing toward
a goal of 600 students which we intend
to reach within ten years, but not at
the expense of quality in the classroom
or in the student body.
Our plans for attaining this number
include hiring Mike Murphey last
February for full-time student recruit-
ment, upping the appeal of our litera-
ture, a limited amount of advertising,
increasing the amount and coverage of
news releases and public relations, and
urging our students to write and talk
with their high school friends about
We invite you to join in this expan-
sion program by talking to parents of
high school students, and to the stu-
dents, too, about the advantages of an
Oglethorpe University education. You
will be talking about one of the finest
educational institutions in the nation.
We have discovered that personal
contact of this sort is more convincing
to students and parents than all of the
other methods combined.
For more information, have them
write, call or come by to see Dean
George C. Seward, Oglethorpe Univer-
sity, Atlanta, Ga.
Make it a point to mention "Ogle-
thorpe University" everyday.

Oglethorpe University Holds
First Pre-School Conference
In a successful effort to get the cur-

school conference of Oglethorpe facul-
ty and staff was initiated by Dr.
Faculty committees, the various
Divisions, and administrators con-
ferred individually and collectively, on
September 1 ! and 12, on all phases of
the Oglethorpe program. They were
joined on September 15 by members of
the Board of Trustees.
The results were comparable to an
automobile's automatic transmission
as the transition from summer vaca-
tion through orientation week to full
speed classwork was made with ex-
ceptional smoothness and speed.

A three-day Leadership Training
Institute was held on the Oglethorpe

American Foreign Policy
Oglethorpe University is the site of
one of six Atlanta area study groups
sponsored by the American Founda-
tion for Political Education.
The subject discussed is "American
Foreign Policy". The group first met
on Monday, October 6 and will con-
tinue to meet each Monday for a total
of eleven weeks.

for the Atlanta area, stated that "the
purpose of these sessions is to help the
individual who participates to have a

An official of Prentice-Hall did in the

Coach, a national coach's publication.
As a result, the well-known publishing
firm asked the author. Garland F.
Pinholster, Oglethorpe University Ath-
letic Director, to write a book contain-
ing the best and most-complete set of
basketball drills ever compiled.
After six months of constant work
reviewing nine years of notes and talk-
ing with hordes of coaches throughout
the South, Pinholster finished "The
Encyclopedia of Basketball Drills" in
time for it to be the September, 1958
feature of the Coach's Book Club.
"Drills" has more than 250 drills
with diagrams (art editor, Mrs. Gar-
land F. Pinholster) packed into its 228
Dr. Martin L. Abbott, Professor of
History at Oglethorpe University, has
had an article published in the Autumn
issue of the Journal of the Illinois State
Entitled "President Lincoln in Con-
federate Caricature," it undertakes to
show how Confederate writers lam-
pooned and ridiculed Lincoln, stress-
ing his deficiencies and exaggerating
his foibles, largely for purposes of pro-
moting morale on the home front within
the Confederacy. Lincoln, in other
words, became the symbol toward
which Confederate writers, through
caricature, encouraged the people at
large to direct their spite and contempt
of the enemy.
Dr. Abbott also addressed the youth
fellowship group at the Tucker Metho-
dist Church in Tucker, Georgia in
October. His subject was "The History
of the Christian Sacraments."

have been completed. However, the

what over the limit set by the Board. A

and rebounder as well as a sharp shoot-

Open Letter to Boosters
May 1 point out the purpose of the
Petrel Booster Club? It is to promote
the physical education, intramural and
varsity athletic programs through our
moral and financial support.
This year we have fine prospects
for an excellent basketball season.
Come see some of the games, renew
old acquaintances and see some real
college spirit plus some nood basket-
Shortly, you will receive a letter re-
garding dues and pledges. We invite
you to take part in this program and
be a part of the successful athletic team
Oglethorpe is now enjoying.
Dues for the Booster Club is ten
dollars per year. For those of you who
are going to graduate school or have
not been in the work-a-day world for
long, ten dollars is a mighty big sum
to you and to Oglethorpe. Your sup-
port will be greatl\ appreciated. How-
ever, we who are established can be
of more financial aid.
During its first year of existence,
your OABC has provided the means
for three boys who could not afford to
attend college to gain an education.
Also, without Booster Club support.
Oglethorpe would not have been able
to field a baseball team last year.
We have been challenged by the
Oglethorpe University Board of Trus-
tees to raise S5.8(X) this year to further
this program. Some S 1.230 has been
received in dues, gifts and pledges to
date — over 20 per cent of the goal.
Your help is necessary to meet this
You can be proud of the vital role
your organization is playing in our

Competition is keen for the forward

Mr. Maier is also a psychologist at
the Georgian Clinic, a state supported
project set up solely for the study and

His article reports the findings of a

were probated to the Clinic by the
municipal court of Atlanta after they
were convicted of a variety of charges.
All of them have had previous jail
The use of group psychotherapy, un-
der Mr. Maier's direction, produced
