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 
Southern Illinois." 

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 
American writers. 


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 
March, 1963. 

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 
Wendell Browns 

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- 
dox sheet what a paper should really 
be like. 

He was invited into Boar's Head, 
and in his junior year, 1947, was 
elected president of the student body 
and chosen for Who's Who in Ameri- 
can Colleges. 

In spite of his age, he tried for and 
made professional option. That is, he 
entered professional school after his 
junior year at Oglethorpe and did his 
first year of law and last year of col- 
lege at the same time, a feat only 
accomplished by a superior mind and 
strong determination. 

Even at this time he was certain of 
the way he would order his life. He 
would earn a law degree, practice for 
experience, and go into politics. This 
he did. 

And now, after a hard race, Charles 
Longstreet Weltner, '48, stands ready 
as Democratic nominee to Congress 
for the Fifth District to battle his Re- 
publican opponent in the general 

P. S. Just to keep it somewhat 
in the family, that opponent, Jim 
O'Callahan, is the brother of Mrs. Ben 
Lorenz (Catherine 'Cuz' O'Callahan. 

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- 
sheim, Germany. 

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 
Coach Pinholster. 

July, 1962 

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 
State, Centenary, Belmont Abbey, St. 
Peters, and others like these on the 

The Booster Club has started its 
financial drive for this year and Presi- 
dent Steve Schmidt feels confident of 
reaching the goal. 

"I think we have the finest group 
of Boosters we have ever had," Presi- 
dent Schmidt said. "And I think we 
have a group of officers and directors 
who will dedicate themselves toward 
the fulfillment of our goal and will do 
whatever work is necessary to reach 
this target.

our Stormy Petrel basketballers several 
times in his popular Atlanta Journal 
sports column, has written his first
