What Do They Say?
More than a building, the long
awaited Field House which is under
construction had become a symbol
representing the direction Oglethorpe
would take in the future. The direction
is now clear; it is forward!
Dr. Agnew said recently that, "We
are highly grateful and pleased to
launch the building of the Field House.
Our Trustees, alumni and friends," he
added, "have worked hard to accom-
plish this step in Oglethorpe's progress.
"The Field House will be a center of
student activities and will be of service
to the community at large.
"It is the second step, Goodman
Hall being the first, within Oglethorpe's
accelerating development program, to
match its academic excellence with
Athletic Director, Garland Pinhols-
ter, said, "Oglethorpe has been recog-
nized widely as an institution with a
strong academic program. Construction
of the new gymnasium eliminated the
biggest obstacle we have faced in de-
veloping a sound physical education
and athletic curriculum, A new build-
ing clears the way for improvement in
physical education activities, intercol-
legiate athletic play, recruitment, sche-
duling, intramural activities and minor
"The greatest contribution," he
said, "of the new gym will result from
the renewed interest in all Oglethorpe
University people whether they be stu-
dents, faculty, alumni or fans. This
building will symbolize the courage

Students from 10 states and 8
foreign countries are represented in
Oglethorpe University's record enroll-

Oglethorpe registrar, Mrs. Marjorie
MacConncll, reported that 292 stu-

Both the men's and women's dor-

Donald C. Agnew, President, estimates
that Oglethorpe's capacity is limited
to some 300 to 325 students including
both day and boarding students.
Indications are that "the space prob-
lem at Oglethorpe will become critical
in the fall of 1960, since more than
2,800 requests for information have al-
ready been received from students in-
terested in entering college next year.

About Dr. Abbott
Dr. Martin L. Abbott, Professor of
History at Oglethorpe, has had an-
other article published in a historical
magazine. It appeared in the June
issue of the ""Tennessee Historical
Quarterly" and it is entitled "The
South as Seen by a Tennessee Unionist
in 1865: Letters of H. M. Watterson".
It consists of several letters written
to President Andrew Johnson by H.
M. Watterson, father of the famous
"Marse Henry" Watterson of the
Louisville Courier and Journal, who
toured the South as an agent of the
President in the summer and fall of
1865. His letters are a particularly re-
vealing commentary on the political
thinking of the South in the immediacy
of defeat from the Civil War, and thus
add to our knowledge of what war
and defeat had meant to the leaders of
the fallen Confederacy.
Dr. Abbott was a visiting associate
professor in history last summer at
Recently, by the authority of the
governor of Georgia, Dr. Abbott was
appointed to membership on the Com-
mittee on Publications of the Georgia
Civil War Centennial Commission. It
is a committee which consists of his-
torians, art and advertising men and
publishers. It will have the responsi-
bility to study the proposals of publi-
cations commemorating the centennial
and make final decisions as to what
should be published and to see that
all publications come up to a worthy
standard. He is also serving as chair-
man of the local arrangements com-
mittee for the Southern Historical

Oglethorpe's Trustees are to be
commended for their diligent efforts in
overcoming almost insurmountable
problems in order to get the Field

rewarded through greater confidence
and faith in Oglethorpe University
among its alumni and in the alumni's
increased support of Oglethorpe's pro-

According to Coach Garland Pin-

Pinholster said, "We're playing a lot

going to have to be satisfied losing a

In an attempt to evaluate his team's
chances this year, he feels that the Pe-

ing .667 ball if they progress as he be-
lieves they will.
