AXELBERG LEADS COMBINED DRIVE
Oglethorpe University alumni kicked-off the first united Forward Ogle-
thorpe Fund on October 12.
Howard G. Axelberg '40, chairman, was pleased to announce that more
than a third of the S27,000 goal had already been received.
He added that the emphasis this
alumni support. If every alumnus gave
tial sums would be greatly encouraged
The combined goal is the largest
undertaken by Oglethorpe alumni ex-
clusive of a building fund campaign.
The Alumni Assn. has pledged to
raise SI 5,000 as its share of the Fund
for the Future. This fund was created
by Dr Agnew to get Oglethorpe in
position for a major expansion effort.
Gifts earmarked for the Alumni
Assn., go directly into this working
fund, not into the Alumni Assn's.
Alumni will receive^ some direct
benefits, however, since some of these
funds will be used to set up a De-
velopment Office. This would include
an enlarged and better equipped
Alumni Office for improved service.
The Booster Club goal is 512,000.
These funds will be used mainly as
athletic scholarships to qualified stu-
Before his account may be credited
with these funds, a boy must meet
admission and academic standards set
for all students.
The success Petrel basketball and
baseball teams have had in recent
years are partly a reflection of in-
creased alumni support.
A new library building, the center
of campus life, and a new women's
residence hall are urgently needed.
While Oglethorpe has a good, small
college library, it is felt that new, high-
er standards should be set. A facility
which will house a minimum of 100,-

A Message From Your President
As you can tell from this issue of The Flying Petrel, things have really been
happenmg m your Alumni Association, the Booster Club, and on the campus
of Oglethorpe. It has been an exciting five months of this administration, and
I trust that the various articles will point this out to you.
Don't miss the articles pertaining to the new joint fund-raising project of
the Alumni Association and the Booster Club under the leadership of Howard
Axelberg, '40, This is a new and exciting approach to Alumni giving, and Howard
is doing a terrific job.
Another article you will want to read is the one about the Annual Fall
Dinner Dance to be held October 29th. This project has been in the capable
hands of Elmer George, '40. Elmer is promising an evening which all Alumni
will really enjoy.
It has been a privilege to serve as an Ex-Officio member of the Board of
Trustees of Oglethorpe University. These men are really dedicated to the ideals
and principles of Oglethorpe forward. Let me assure you, that under their guid-
ance, the future belongs to Oglethorpe.
As a closing note for this article, I want to express my sincere appreciation
to a man who is really devoted to our cause. Dan Uffner, '51, who is the Assist-
ant to the President of Oglethorpe, has done a magnificent job in all phases of
our Alumni activities and deserves an enormous vote of thanks from all of us
On behalf of your Board of Directors, I ask the wholehearted support
of each of you throughout the year in order that 1960-1961 will be all that it
should be for our Alma Mater.
O. K. Sheffield, president

000 volumes is needed. It will then
be possible to have a wider variety
of books and periodicals in each field
of concentration. At present, less used
though still useful, books must be
discarded in favor of newer ones.
At peak periods, students have diffi-
culty in finding a place to sit down
and study. As our student body in-
creases, this problem could seriously
threaten our academic standards.
Due to lack of residence space,
Oglethorpe has had to refuse admit-
tance to women boarding students
Two years ago capacity for female
campus students was set at 44. Last
year, renovations enabled the limit to
be increased to 54. Additional re-
modeling brought the total this year
There is no other way to increase
capacity without adding a new build-
ing. And the demand is increasing.
A modern, attractive facility for 100
to 150 women is needed.
Initial receipt of gifts for these pro-
jects has been gratifying. Both the
amount and number are unprecedented
for this early in the campaign.
If you have not yet sent your gift
or pledge, now is the time to join
those who have. Your gift, large or
small, is important for a greater Ogle-

electron microscope which has been added to the research laboratory. The instrument was
purchased with part of the 334,060 Public Health Service grant which Oglethorpe received
earlier this year.
Dr. Cohen, who directs the biological research, said that "Oglethorpe now has one of the
best equipped electron microscope laboratories in the southeast." He stated that this instru-
ment will "increase our research capacity and expand the facility for advanced undergraduate
courses in the biological field."

IN TWO YEARS
Oglethorpe University enrollment
has doubled in two years. A twenty-
tliree per cent increase over last year
pushed the current total to 361 stu-
dents. The student body numbered 181
While Georgians predominate, stu-
dents representing twelve states and
nine foreign countries are in attend-
All residence halls arc full. It was
reported that the last vacancy in the
female residence hall was filled in
Applications received to date for
the fall of 1961 are somewhat higher
than at tiiis time last year. However,
it is likely that the student body will
have to be limited next year to about
its present number until additional fa-
cilities become available.
The geographical location of Ogle-
thorpe students are listed below. The
high percentages of Atlanta and Geor-
gia students are caused by limited
boarding facilities. Most Atlanta and

REMINISCING WITH THE
Boar's Head Ceremony
Perhaps we, like American busi-
ness, will be accused of getting out
our Christmas wares too far in ad-
vance. We can only plead that the
publication dates are at fault, not we.
Besides Christmas will be on you
before you know it.
Back in the fall of 1944, with a
total enrollment of thirty-five (to be-
come twenty-five after Christmas ex-
ams), and with ties to the past all
but non-existant, Oglethorpe was look-
ing desperately for some foundations
tobuild upon. We started at least two
traditions a day. One could not
stumble on the iron step rims without
it becoming a tradition. We still
stumble but no one celebrates it any
longer. One tradition that does re-
main, however, is the annual Christ-
mas party — the Boar's Head Cele-
There was nothing original in our
getting this going; Oueen's College,
Oxford, had ante-dated us by some
seven hundren years. The story, as
they tell it, began one pre-Christmas
season with a student walking in a
wood near the college reading a Greek
book, when he was attacked by a
wild boar. Lacking any other defense
he shoved the book down the boar's
throat, choking him to death. Stu-
dents salvaged the creature, and the
head was cooked for the holiday feast.
When it was carried into the hall the
college greeted it with song, including
a boar's head carol. Yearly, to the
present time, the ceremony has been
repeated in all aspects except the kill-
ing of the boar.
Many colleges have since started
a similar event, and so, said the pio-
neers of 1944, what could be more
appropriate for Oglethorpe, whose
patron had heraldic arms showing
three boar's heads.
That first year we had the late
Roosevelt Walker from the University
of Georgia, well known as a singer
of Elizabethan ballads and carols, to
carry the head (uncooked) in on a
platter while he sang the Boar's Head
Carol. This done in costume gave
the old English air to the occasion.

TEACHES ON TV
Dr. Cheever Cressy, Oglethorpe
professor of international relations, is
teaching a non-credit "International
Relations" course on an Atlanta tele-
The timely course, which was be-
gun on October 19, will run for a
total of eleven weeks. It is scheduled
on WAGA-TV, channel 5, at 7:30
a.m. each Wednesday through Decem-
Among the elements which will be
covered are the state system, inter-
national law, diplomacy, political geo-
graphy, and collective security sys-
tems such as the United Nations.
Prior to his Oglethorpe appointment
in 1950, Dr. Cressy taught at Tufts
College, Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, and Bowdoin College. He
served as research assistant to the
World Peace Foundation in 1946.
Dr. Cressy received an A.B. degree
from Tufts in 1944. He earned his
M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from Fletcher
School of Law and Diplomacy in 1945
and 1952 respectively.
NORMAN B. THOMSON
FILLS NEW POST
Norman B. Thomson has been
named to the newly created post of
Director of Development at Ogle-
Mr. Thomson is well prepared for
the duties he has assumed with exten-
sive experience in both business and
Prior to his current position, he
taught classes in management and
corporation finance at Ft. McPherson
in Oglethorpe's extension program
while he served as southern manager
of Robert T. Phillips Assoc, Inc.,
Mr. Thomson's career began in
1922 as director of finance for the
Illinois State Chamber of Commerce.
After four years, he formed an invest-
ment banking partnership in Chicago
called Thomson-Laadt & Co. The
highly successful firm handled under-
writings and distribution of investment
securities until the company was sold
to another investment firm in 1945.
While he states that he retired at
that time, Mr. Thomson has since led
an extremely active and rewarding life.
Always interested in young people,
he turned his interests to teaching. He
served on three college faculties from
1946 through 1959, including Penn
State, Temple and the U. of Florida.
He was also sought as a consultant
by numerous business firms during
As for his reason in coming to Ogle-
thorpe, Mr. Thomson said, "I'm inter-
ested in Dr. Agnew's idea of develop-
ing a good, well-managed college of
liberal arts at Oglethorpe.
The Abbott family waved good-bye as they
prepared to drive to New York City last
September. Dr. Martin L. Abbott, professor of
history at Oglethorpe, received a Fulbright
grant to teach in Germany, near Frankfort am
Main. He is on a one-year leave of absence
A firm near Oglethorpe needs a
laboratory technician who is strong
in organic chemistry. The position
will include research in plastics and
a good salary for a qualified man

The Flying Petrel
With the return of virtually the same
team and schedule, the 1960-61 edi-
tion of the Petrels should do at least
as well as last year's squad, accord-
ing to Coach Garland Pinholster.
Of course there is one notable loss.
Jay Dye, the all-state center, graduated
in June. It remains to be seen whether
sophomore southpaw Morris Mitchell
and Sam Hudgins, Dye's understudy
for two years, can take up the slack.
Pinholster feels that we are definite
underdogs in three contests of our 21
game slate, including two games with
Ga. Southern and one with Stetson.
Ahhough the Petrels bested Chatta-
nooga twice last season, he rates these
games as toss-ups.
For the remainder of the schedule,
the Birds must be given the nod, but
not a shoo-in.
Valdosta State has beefed up its
squad with eight junior college trans-
fers whose crew cuts measure 6' 4"
or more from the floor.
Overall, team defense should be im-
proved over last year, but "to be as
good as we were in 1958-59, we'd
have to get Billy Carter back." Ogle-
thorpe led the nation's 500 small col-
leges in team defense for the last two
"We've got everybody on weights
Monday, Wednesday and Friday," the
Coach said. "It strengthens their hands
and arms, and they handle the ball
with more assurance. The added
muscle should help us on the back-
One doubtful note is 6' 4" forward,
John Kuiken. An exceptionally strong
rebounder, Kuiken hurt his back dur-
ing an October practice. The injury
may keep him out for the year.
The forward slot also brings a bright
note in the 6' 4" frame of Bobby
Nance. Pinholster believes this sopho-
more is just about ready to go with
the best of them.
Bobby Sexton, 6' 5" forward, is
the only freshman on the team. He
is probably the best shooter, but his
action this year will be limited by his
inexperience on defense.
Work horse Roger Couch, a 6' 2"
senior, forward, is "real hungry." He
is playing the best basketball in his
AT 5 TILTS
Coach Pinholster believes that the
2,000 seats in the new Field House will
be taken during each of five big games
Come extra early on the following
nights when the Petrels play: Ga.
Southern, December 5; St. Bernard.
January 5; U. of Chattanooga, Janu-
ary 28; Stetson, February 9; and Pem-
broke State, the all-Indian team, Feb-
Ga. Southern, year in and year out,
has one of tlie strongest teams in the
state, bar none. St. Bernard beat the
Petrels in Atlanta last year, their first
loss at home since the 1957-58 season.
The Birds intend to correct that flaw.
Oglethorpe will be out to revenge
the loss they experienced at the hands
of Stetson in DeLand, Fla., and again
in Tampa at the 25th District NAIA
life. He will have to, to keep his start-
The Petrel mentor said, "Buddy
Goodwin at 6' 1" is a kind of lost
soul. We've got two good guards, and
he's short for a forward." But there
is no doubt that Goodwin will see
a lot of action.
A real dogfight is going on at the
pivot. At this writing the experience
and determination of 6' 2" senior
Sammy Hudgins gives him a slight
edge over an improved, but still some-
what erratic and shy, 6' 5" Morris
The guard line-up mirrors that of
last year with Jay Rowland and Tom-
my Norwood in the lead with compe-
tent understudies in Wayne Dobbs
and Johnny Guthrie.
One comment though, Rowland is
25 pounds heavier and faster than last
year, and Norwood is more consistent
and he has never shot better.
Another top flight season is in store
for the Petrels. Clip and keep the
1960-61 schedule that appears on
