THE SHAPE OF THE FUTURE
Definite phases and steps in the Oglethorpe University development pro-
gram have been completed and the artist's rendering shows how the campus
is to look several years hence. We should all be encouraged at the con-
tinued evidence of progress. Monies received and "on the way" will make
it possible for us to think about the time when we will actually break
ground. However, Dr. Agnew feels, and correctly so, that we must get
the endowment picture strengthened as a necessary first step toward the
realization of our goals.

Graduate Of 1925 Awarded
Diploma In 1962
Dr. Agnew with M. V. Braddy — Class of '25
A diploma was awarded 37 years
late to Mr. M. V. Braddy, a graduate
of the class of 1925. The event took
place at the summer commencement
exercises held at the University on
Friday, August 17.
Dr. Donald C. Agnew, President,
presented the diploma to Mr. Braddy
explaining to the audience that rules
governing the awarding of diplomas
in 1925 required that a graduate must
have been present to receive the certi-
ficate. As Mr. Braddy had been of-
fered a teaching position in another
city, he had to leave the campus before
he was to participate in the graduation
In August, 37 years later and hav-
ing retired from active business, Mr.
Braddy received his diploma as Bache-
lor of Arts in Education — Date:
May 21, 1925.

With the unprecedented response of nearly 829,000.00 and 97 1 donors to
the Forward Oglethorpe Fund drive of last year, the 1962-63 campaign lias a
real challenge ahead. The goal is S40.000.00 and 1100 donors.
With the growth of the alumni the 1 100 donors represents nearly one third
of all known alumni.
This year, there has been added a new category to which alumni may
contribute — Endowment. In addition to the library and Women's Residence
Hall, this new category will represent another permanent project for the Alumni
to help build for Oglethorpe.
With the help of interested alumni for Oglethorpe, we can make this year
one of the biggest and best that the school has ever had. We can show that the
alumni are interested in the growth and development of a great institution. We
can show that Oglethorpe alumni are strong in spirit and support of their school.
Mr. Cohen Authors
Book Of Poems
Mr. William Cohen, Assistant Pro-
fessor in English and Human Under-
standing at Oglethorpe University, has
had a book of poems published by the
Southern Illinois Inc., located in
Cartersville, 111. The book is entitled
"A House in the Country-Poems From
The jacket of the book contains a
statement by Peter Viereck in which
he calls Mr. Cohen "a poet of life
and ever renewing himself." Mr.
Cohen, whose poems and Rilke trans-
lations have been praised at the Li-
brary of Congress by Peter Viereck,
is completing his Ph.D. courses at
Emory University in Atlanta.
In addition, the library at Ogle-
thorpe University will display the
original manuscript along with letters
of comment from leading modern
HAVE ART FESTIVAL
Plans are underway now to hold
the first Art Festival at Oglethorpe
University. Areas to be included
will be theatrical performances, mu-
sic, an art show, poetry and dance.
It is hoped that lectures, readings
and performances can be obtained
by outstanding persons in the area.
The Festival is tentatively slated
to begin the last week of February
and run into the first week of
The next issue of the FLYING
PETREL will contain more defin-
ate and detailed information.
University Marker Is
Gift of Class of 1962
Inspired by President Jack Warren's
determination to open Oglethorpe's
striking campus to view from Peach-
tree Road, the class of 1962 recently
dedicated its unique gift to the Uni-
versity. The handsome granite and
marble entrance marker, pictured be-
low, replaces an unsightly transit
shelter and a tangled and overgrown
clump of shrubs.
Class members moved the transit
shelter to an unobtrusive location and.
incidently, improved its appearance;
cleared away the shrubbery, graded
and curbed the area. Class member
Bob Olsen was a leader in accomplish-
ing the physical work involved.
The marker, with its gold lettering
in polished marble surrounded by a
granite frame will stand through the
years not only as an asset to the Uni-
versity, but also as an enduring re-
minder of the thoughtfulness and
originality of the Class of 1962.

Reminiscing With The
We remember the first year of our
life at Oglethorpe the pathetically
small class of twelve entering fresh-
men. We remember one freshman
trailing across the campus (we were
then still in the country) with a gun
under his arm, his coon hound Cinna-
mon at his heel, the two followed by
what looked to be a faithful colored
retainer to bring in the game. This
squire of the Old South lent a great
deal of color to the campus even
though he turned out to be only six-
teen years old and the faithful retainer
only Fletcher, the janitor, who, as
usual, was dodging real work. But
the spirit was genuine enough, and in
the years this freshman was with us,
he led the campus in memorial cele-
brations of Robert E. Lee on the gen-
eral's birthday and master minded the
battles against the Yankees (we had
and have many) determined to keep
the stars and bars off the flag staff.
As time went on, he became active
in school affairs as diverse as design-
ing the crowns (still in use) for the
Lord and Lady of the Oglethorpe Ball
and helping to start a rival newspaper
to the Stormy Petrel called the Men's
Free Press in order to show the ortho-

What Are We Waiting For?
Some of you may be asking at this
point, "What are we waiting for?"
Well, the fact is, we're not waiting!
More gifts are being received — some
challenge, some with strings.
Definite plans for what's first and
what's next are taking shape. A fine
artist's drawing of the proposed cam-
pus has just been completed, and you
will be seeing more of this.
Sometime within the next few weeks
you will receive a letter outlining plans
whereby you can make contributions
to the University and yet retain the
equity of your gift in your estate plus
receiving substantial tax advantages.
Many are saying there is a wonder-
ful new spirit of progress at Ogle-
thorpe, both on and off campus. Our
"image" is emerging in a constructive
and truly positive light. Heads are
turning at what we're doing at Ogle-
thorpe. And this is only the beginning.
Dreams are nearer reality than they
have ever been. And we will keep you
informed, for you will have a big part
in the total development picture.

Dr. Abbott's Essay To Be
Published By Fulbright
During 1962 the Fulbright Com-
mission plans to celebrate the tenth
anniversary of the Fulbright Program
in Germany by the publicaiton of a
volume of essays written by certain
elected contributors who have served
as Fulbright lecturers in Germany dur-
ing the last ten years.
Dr. Martin Abbott of the Ogle-
thorpe faculty was asked to contribute.
Dr. Abbott spent the year 1960-61 at
the University of Mainz in Gerner-
The title of Dr. Abbott's essay is:
"Ferment of American Freedom: So-
cial Reform and Reformers, 1820-
1860." In this he has undertaken to
show how and why the tradition of
social reform developed so early in
America, and to treat some of the
more and significant of these: the tem-
perance movement; women's suffrage;
better care of the insane; the various
Utopian communities that were estab-
lished; and of course, the drive to rid
the nation of the blot of Negro Slavery.
The volume is scheduled for publi-
cation sometime this Fall.
The Flying Petrel
Notes From The Athletic Department
The intramural program is off and
running again at school, destined to
be the most successful in the history
of Oglethorpe University.
Spearheaded by Coach Billy Carter,
this program has attracted the enthusi-
asm of a majority of the students,
offering each student some sort of
sporting competition in which he or
she can compete.
With the beginning of the new year,
the intramural touch football league
started. Other activities planned in-
clude volleyball, basketball, softball,
tennis and ping-pong and badminton
"We think the success of the pro-
gram last year," Coach Carter said,
"has created a warm climate for an
even larger program this year. And we
further feel this interest will be shown
in the larger participation by the
It's also time for the soccer team
to get underway. Again Coach Carter
is the bossman of the operation. Ogle-
thorpe plans to play six matches this
season, with one trip being considered.
The schedule will be more ambi-
tious than last year, the first season
for this new sport.
"We expect to have an excellent
nucleus with our returning players,"
Coach Carter said, "and then add sev-
eral new players from our freshman
class. We hope to make soccer a major
sport on the campus. We have games
with Emory, Berry, Emory at Oxford,
Maryville Tennessee, and plan to
schedule one trip to Florida to com-
plete our schedule. The matches with
the two Emorys and Berry are sched-
uled on a home-and-home basis. Last
season, a get-acquainted year for soc-
cer at Oglethorpe, we played three
matches and they were well received
by our students. We anticipate a large
increase in that interest."
Coach Garland Pinholster has
signed for 21 basketball games with
the hopes of adding two more before
the start of the season. The Petrels
will defend their Christmas tournament
title against three strong opponents —
Georgetown, Newberry, and Valdosta
State. Both Georgetown and Newberry
were ranked high among the small
colleges in 1961-62. Valdosta State
won the GIAC championship, capi-
talizing, we might add, on the Ogle-
thorpe Wheel offense, the invention of
The Petrels will also travel North,
playing St. Peters in New Jersey and
possibly one more team in that area.
Other clubs scheduled include
Carson-Newman, Georgia Southern.
Murray State, Belmont Abbey, Cen-
tenary, and New Hampshire. The
New Hampshire battle will undoubted-
ly be the highlight of the home slate.
Freshmen signed by Oglethorpe are
Ronnie and Donnie Owens, twins from
Kentucky; Pasco Tilson, Jr., of Forest
Park, Georgia; Walker Heard, of At-
lanta; and Bill Garrigan, an Air Force
veteran from Pennsylvania.
"Our main question mark is at
guard," Coach Pinholster said. "We
have two big guards returning from
last year, senior Darrell Whitford and
sophomore Ray Thomas. But we have
no third guard in sight. If we are
plagued by illness or injury at this
position we could be hurting. Our top
five boys are potentially as strong as
the top five last season. Of course, we
will have to sacrifice whatever in-
tangible qualities Tommy Norwood
supplied our team.
"We hope Garrigan will develop
fast enough to give us a No. 3 guard,
or possibly challenge Whitford and
Thomas for a job. Garrigan is 22 years
old. We also hope Billy Parker will
develop into a No. 3 forward and that
Heard will come along to be our No.
2 pivot. Our fall practice will be dedi-
cated to the development of these
three boys and others who must im-
prove so that we may have adequate
bench strength to play a schedule that
is probably our toughest of the last
seven years. We have to play Murray

Peters, and others like these on the
