ALUMNI ARE CHALLENGED 



Our alumni association has a tre- 
mendous challenge! At this period in 
the history of Oglethorpe University we 
find that the college must move for- 
ward. The enrollment is at an all time 
high. The addition of the evening 
classes places greater emphasis on the 
need and desire of students seeking an 
education at Oglethorpe. 

With increased enrollment, academic 
standards have also been raised even 
higher, the quality of our faculty has 
been able to keep pace with this growth 
thus far. However, it should be of con- 
cern to all of us to realize that with 
quality comes added financial and ad- 
ministrative burdens. 

Oglethorpe University as a small, in- 
dependent college receives very little, 
if any, financial support from govern- 
ment agencies. The main source of 
income to the college comes from stu- 
dent tuition. The money is used to 
maintain our present operation without 
capital for expansion of facilities and 
supplements for faculty salaries. 

If Oglethorpe University is to main- 
tain its present high standard and status 
among the top institutions of higher 
learning, then we the members of the 
alumni association must take an active 
financial interest in its operation. Our 
graduate list is comparatively small, 
therefore it is vital that each former 
student contribute at least something. 
Many of our more recent graduates are 
in the process of establishing homes, 
etc. Regardless of our position, we 
must all make every effort to pledge or 
contribute as much as feasible. 

In the very near future you will re- 
ceive through the mail a letter with a 
pledge envelope enclosed. It would be 
a great accomplishment for Oglethorpe

University if over the next three year 
period we could build our goal and giv- 
ing up to $60,000. This is a minimum 
of what is needed to keep pace with 
increased expenses of operation and to 
supplement faculty salaries. Faculty 
salaries must be increased if the college 
is to maintain its reputation and qual- 
ity teachers. As you know, recently 
several of our outstanding teachers left 
the college for other positoins in similar 
colleges that could pay more. 

Oglethorpe has to compete with col- 
leges that have large endowments, etc. 
Facilities are important to a college but 
the faculty makes the college come 
alive. Let's meet our obligation and 
responsibility. 



Three New Trustees 
are Appointed 

Two Oglethorpe alumni and a Bir- 
mingham businessman were elected to 
the Board of Trustees of Oglethorpe 
University recently. This brings the 
total number of Board members to 
twenty-three regular members and two 
ex-officio members. 

Those appointed were; Mr. Norman 
Arnold, '50, Mr. Stephen J. Schmidt, 
'40, and Mr. Nelson Weaver. 

Mr. Arnold resides in Columbia, 
South Carolina where he is president of 
the Ben Arnold Company. He was 
married recently to an Atlanta girl, Miss 
Gerry Sue Siegel. Mr. Arnold served 
four years in the U.S. Navy after re- 
ceiving his degree from Oglethorpe in 
1950. 

Mr. Schmidt is president of the Dixie 
Seal and Stamp Company and owner of 
the Dixie Metal Tag Company, both of 
Atlanta. He is active in numerous civic 
organizations, is a member of the At- 
lanta Rotary Club, the Atlanta Cham- 
ber of Commerce and has coached 
Little League Baseball for several years. 
He was elected to the Oglethorpe Hall 
of Fame in 1963. He is a 1940 gradu- 
ate of Oglethorpe and is married to the 
former Jeanne Fuller, an Oglethorpe 
alumna. 

Mr. Nelson Weaver of Alabama is 
president of the Nelson Weaver Com- 
panies, Inc. of Birmingham, Alabama, 
a real estate and mortgage banking con- 
cern. Sports enthusiasts know Mr. 
Weaver as the President and Chairman 
of the Board of the Atlanta Interna- 
tional Raceway, Inc.

From the Editor 

With this issue, the Alumni Associa- 
tion will begin publishing the "Flying 
Petrel" six times a year. The dates of 
publication will be October, December, 
February, April, June and August. 

I should like to ask that you — for 
whom this magazine is published, to 
write and tell of news that would be of 
interest to your classmates, to the 
alumni — a promotion, a marriage, an 
appointment. 

There are over 4,000 of us now. 
Over 40 years of graduates and former 
students. The newer classes learn of 
the successes and high attainments of 
the older classes and the older classes 
learn of the achievements and oppor- 
tunities of the more recent classes. 

Since the continuance of an alumni 
publication depends a great deal on the 
news of the alumni, it is vital to write 
me of your achievements. 

Joyce B. Minors, 
Editor 




THE PRESIDENT'S CORNER 

Dear Son, 

Last week I felt so proud to see that 
you were old enough to take hunting 
with me. Happy and yet somehow a 
little sad to realize that my eleven year 
old child was so little back a few 
yesterdays. A few more tomorrows and 
you and your friends will be entering 
the doors of some college or university. 
Of course the decision as to which 
school will be your choice but as your 
grandfather, mother and I did we hope 
it will be Oglethorpe. Not because she 
accepted us but because she's a great 
university. Recently while talking to a 
boy who is a senior in high school, I 
asked him what he thought about Ogle- 
thorpe and his reply was, "Well, I don't 
know about going to school there — I 
hear her curriculum is murderous." 
What a wonderful compliment to this 
school! From a neighbor that moved 
down from New York came these 
words — "I think the buildings, campus 
and the setting of Oglethore University 
is one of the most beautiful scenes in 
our country." 

Son, all of this makes one feel proud but once you really take an active interest 
in the school, you realize that it doesn't exist without a tremendous amount of 
effort. 

As sure as our spiritual life is centered around a church, a school's success is 
centered in the work of her alumni. To insure Oglethorpe's future, each alumnus 
must plan, contribute, sell and work for present and future needs. Unless we do 
these things, you and your friends will not have the outstanding faculty now en- 
joyed, there will be no modern library, dormitories, science equipment and dozens 
of other necessities. 

There is now an up-to-date list of over 4000 alumni. If each alumnus on this 
list will do whatever he can to help, Oglethorpe University can bask in the light 
she so rightly has earned. Receiving no federal or state funds, the main source of 
money must come from tuition and grants. To receive grants, the one question that 
is invariably asked, "What per-cent of the alumni contribute to keep her going?" 

You see son, why should others be interested unless the Alumni are? 

I feel sure you now understand why the appeal we extend to every alumnus is so 
very, very important. Over 600 students now are honored by being able to improve 
his education at Oglethorpe and we who attended only a few years ago can readily 
see the strains she is feeling. 

Well, ole Buddy, I'm determined to do what I can to help and close in comfort 
that the coming year will see an all out effort by everyone with a memory of 
Oglethorpe University to do his part.

the Pait 



Dr. Thomas K. Peters was a consultant archivist at Oglethorpe University dur- 
ing the thirties. He is best known for his work on the Crypt of Civilization with Dr. 
Thornwell Jacobs. While connected with Oglethorpe he designed and built a 
Japanese garden that was located along the stream behind Lowry Hall. 

Dr. Peter's imagination transformed three ponds, built by daming up the small 
stream, into a beautiful Japanese garden. Numerous plants for the garden were re- 
ceived from the Japanese government, among them two Japanese flowing cherry 
trees and a number of large Japanese Iris. To add to the oriental atmosphere 
Japanese fern and bambo were planted. The wild azaleas which were already on 
the land were left to mingle their foliage with that of the Oriental plants. Water 
lilies nearly covered the third pond. 

The building of the garden was started in the thirties, during the depression. The 
land where the garden was to be built had to be cleared of heavy undergrowth and 
the dams had to be built. Men who were with the WPA supplied the labor to build 
the garden. 

After the plants had been arranged a Japanese footbridge was built over the "lily 
pond" as the lower pond was called. The bridge was built by putting hand rails on 
an overturned boat. Between the "lily pond" and the middle pond another, smaller 
footbridge crossed the winding stream. 

The upper pond soon became known 
as the "frog pond," the frogs seemed 
to prefer it as a place to bred. Here in 
a small wire enclosure, aptly named the 
"frog house," they replenished their 
number yearly and the variation of 
their croaks formed the mood music 
for visitors to the charming garden. The 
splash of lish, the wind whispering 
through the bamboo and the birds 
formed the accompanyment. 

Dr. Peters built a Budda to be placed 
in the garden, never realizing that the 
statue would last much longer than the 
garden it was meant to enhance. At the 
base of a tall stately pine Dr. Peters 
built a pedestal and around it he 
planted ivy. The ivy soon covered the 
pedestal and crept high up the trunk of 
the pine, giving the Budda's observers 
the impression that the silent figure sat 
on thick cushions of green leaves. A 
delicate moving lattice work was 
created by planting waist high Japanese 
fern and bamboo behind the solemn 
faced god. 

Budda sat on his pedestal and a 
legend grew that a student could not 
pass a test unless he had thrown a 
penny into the waiting hands of the 
statue. Before exams the hands of the 
Budda would be filled. The tradition 
was established and lasted as long as 
the Budda held court in his garden. The 
neighborhood children were pleased by 
the practice because they regularly col- 
lected the coins thrown to the Budda. 

Money for the upkeep of the garden 
was hard to find in the years around 
World War II. Slowly the garden be-

c^ J^ew Math 

Uo the present 

Johnny will soon be learning a new type of math. Professor Roy M, Goslin, 
consulting physicist at Oakridge National Laboratories and a teacher of physics 
and mathematics at Oglethorpe University, taught this "new math" and Boolean 
Algebra during Oglethorpe University's sununer session. A large percentage of 
the fifty-five high school and grammar school teachers who took the course were 
requested to do so by their school boards or their principals. 

Regular course sequences in mathematics are bing speeded up. Courses in ad- 
vanced algebra and trigonometry that were considered strictly college material a 
few years ago are now being taught in high school. The freshman college course in 
algebra and trigonometry have been integrated; calculus and other advanced maths 
have been added. 

The "new math" that Johnny will be learning is not just a speeded up course. 
The changes that have taken place because of the automation revolution and the 
advent of large-scale, high-speed, automatic digital computing machines have made 
certain types of math almost obsolete. The logarithm tables that were emphasized 
for computing large numbers are now primarily taught to explain the principle. 
Their former job is now done more quickly by slide rules, adding machines and 
complex computers. 



Students will learn to work with 
number systems other than the ten 
system on which our currency is based. 
This has been made necessary by the 
use of electronic computers. The ma- 
chines only register "on" (represented 
by 1 ) or "off" (represented by 0) mak- 
ing it necesasry for them to operate on 
a binary system. 

Changes started when the College 
Entrance Examiantion Board ap- 
pointed a commission in the summer of 
1955 to study and revise high school 
math courses. This in turn required a 
revision of grammar school math. Their 



findings, published in 1958, stated that 
obsolete material should be cut, the re- 
maining material regrouped and new 
material added. Outlines for improve- 
ment in the training of mathematics 
teachers were drawn up by the Com- 
mittee on the Undergraduate Program 
in Mathematics. 

High school and grammar school 
students will soon be learning intersec- 
tion, union and complementation along 
with addition, substraction, multiplica- 
tion and division. They will form a

a chair and find that these elements may 
form a set because they all have four 
legs. They will form another group 
consisting of a dog, a man and a bird 
and find that these may form a set be- 
cause they are all warm blooded. Then 
they find the only point of intersection 
beteen the two sets is the dog who has 
both warm blood and four legs. 

Johnny may soon be asking, "Mom, 
can you help me find the intersection 
between a cow and a table?" 




Charles L. Weltner '48 

WELTNER SPEAKS OUT 

Amid all the confusion and "who is 
responsible" speeches made after the 
bombing of the church in Birmingham, 
Congressman Charles Weltner, '48 
Fifth District Congressman of Georgia 
delivered a speech on the floor of Con- 
gress that was picked up by the wire 
services and given nation-wide acclaim. 

For those of you who, for some rea- 
son or other, missed the remarks made 
by Congressman Weltner, the text is as 
follows: 

"Mr. Speaker, there was a time when 
a Southerner was moderate for what he 
did not say. There was a time when 
silence amid the denunciations of others 
was a positive virtue. But in the face 
of the events on Sunday, who can re- 
main silent? 

"Those responsible for the deed in 
Birmingham chose a Sabbath morning 
as the time, a House of God as the 
place, and the worshippers within as 
the victims. I do not know what twisted 
and tortured minds fashioned this deed. 
But I know why it happened. It hap- 
pened because those chosen to lead 
have failed to lead. Those whose task 
it is to speak have stood mute. 

"And in so doing, we have permitted 
to voice of the South to preach defiance 
and disorder. We have stood by, leav- 
ing the field the reckless and violent 
men. 

"For all our hand-wringing and 
head-shaking, we will never put down 
violence until we can raise a higher 
standard.

son, David Wylie on July 8. The Halls

Cecil P. (Cy) Todd, '32, died Febru- 
ary 9, 1963 in Tampa, Florida. 

Sidney M. Swope, '29, February, 
1963, in Orlando, Florida. He had 
been associated with the Orlando 
Transit Company. 

Miss Colea M. White, died July, 
1963 in Atlanta. Miss White had 
taught school for over 30 years and at 
the time of her death was a teacher at 
Wesley Chapel in DeKalb County. 

Ida Nevin (Mrs. J. Robin) Brook- 
shire, died July, 1963 in Knoxville, 
Tennessee where she had made her 
home for the past eight years. The 
daughter of the late James B. Nevin, 
editor of the ATLANTA GEORGIAN, 
Mrs. Brookshire wrote a society col- 
umn called "Polly Peachtree" in the 
early 1930s. 

Aline Timmons (Mrs. Sam E) Nel- 
son, '36, died August 14, 1963 at her 
home in Atlanta. 

Dale C. Benoy, '65, was killed in an 
automobile accident September 14, 
1963. Mr. Benoy was returning from 
North Carolina when the mishap 
occured. 

"Though honest men may difl'er as 
the means, can we not affirm as a great 
goal of this Republic the concept — 
equality of opportunity. 

"Mr. Speaker, we need not so much 
paragraphs on books of the law, as new 
precepts in the hearts of men. We need 
to raise, and to follow, this standard — 
as old as Christianity and as simple as 
truth — Let right be done".

came over grown and little by little 
the dams were washed away. Paths be- 
came indistinct as rushes and bambo 
spread where they were not intended 
to be. People forgot the tradition of the 
Budda and children in the neighbor- 
hood told he was an evil idol. A group 
of young boys came and taught that 
they would have no idol worship here. 
7 hey shot his face off with air rifles. 

Some of the botany students who had 
tried in vain to keep the garden up took 
Budda to Dr. Peters, by that time re- 
tired. Dr. Peters rebuilt Budda's face 



and he was returned to the school. 

The garden had deteriorated to near 
non-existence, yet the idol waited. His 
wait was repaid when a group of Fresh- 
men came and adopted the old idol as 
mascot for the Basketball Team. Budda 
was rechristened "Oggie" and is 
brought in triumphantly before the first 
Basketball game of the season each 
year. 

All that remains of the garden now 
are the cherry trees, scattered clumps 
of bamboo and rushes among the other 
undergrowth.
