Mr. James S. Peters, Chairman of
the State Board of Education was this
year's recipient of the School Bell
Award presented by the Oglethorpe
Alumni Association to a person who
has made outstanding contributions to
the field of education.
Mr. Peters, a native of Manchester,
Georgia, is a gendeman in his 80's and
states firmly that he has been connected
with the educational system of Georgia
for 73 years — from the time when the
school year was only three months long
until the present time working with his
fourth governor as chairman of the
State Board of Education.
Mr. Holliday, President of the
Alumni Association states that we are
honored to present the Bell Award to

Progress Report -Fund Drive
Like any private college, Oglethorpe
University needs our help — our help in
dollars. The trustees are working hard
to build endowment so that the annual
income will be larger. One way we can
help is to show the potential sources
that our own "family" is behind the
college. This means that your contribu-
tion to the 1964 Forward Oglethorpe
Fund — regardless of size automatically
increases the percentage of participa-
As of April 10th, our alumni had
contributed $17,000. We would like to
be at our goal of $30,000 by Alumni
Day, May 15th & 16th.
This is to remind you not to delay
too long in sending your check to the
Forward Oglethorpe Fund. There is
more to this business than showing an
appreciation of what Oglethorpe did
for us. We are more than maintaining
the high standard set by our country's
educational system and there is no need
for one to point to us the importance
of our private colleges in the picture.
Send in whatever you can afford and it
will be sincerely appreciated.

taken him all over the world. He ac-

in and out of the United States; and
was at Warm Springs at the time of
Roosevelt's death. Mr. Smith re-

for coverage of that story in 1945. He
was with Truman at the Potsdam Con-
ference. During the Eisenhower terms,
he traveled to Korea in 1952 as well as
Eisenhower's tour of 1 1 Asian, African
and European nations. Mr. Smith
covered the Bermuda Big Three Con-
ference and the Paris NATO Council
With the late President Kennedy, he
made all trips abroad including the
meeting in Vienna between Kennedy
and Premier Khrushchev, the visits to
Columbia and Venezuela; Mexico City
and in April of 1963 the conference
with the presidents of six Central
American nations in Costa Rico.
Headlines all over the world attested
to his greatest effort when he wrote of
the assassination of President Kennedy
in Dallas. His eyewitness account of
the tragic event is written in Four Days,
a book published by UPI about the
death and funeral of Kennedy.
Mr. Smith has written five books on
his Presidential experiences and ob-

Outside the Peace Corps.
The following "article" is really a
letter from Miss Judy Skiles, a 1963
graduate of Oglethorpe. Miss Skiles is
engaged to a member of the Peace
Corps, Arnold Baker, also a 1963
graduate now stationed in Guatemala.
With her permission, the letter is as
April 3, 1964
1 hope you will not mind the manner
in which this letter is written. I have
resorted to duplicating a letter because
I have so much to tell so many. This
way I will be able to send everyone a
long letter about my trip to visit Arnold
After months of anticipation and
preparation for the trip it was hard to
realize on December 20 that the time
had finally come for me to go. Some-
how, though, I managed to pack and
float out to the airport. My suitcases,
by the way, were full primarily of
miscellaneous articles for Arnold:
Christmas presents from his family and
mine; articles of food and clothing for
him which he is unable to get at a
reasonable price in Guatemala; and
most important of all, peanut butter.
Yes, that's right, peanut butter! This
"delicacy" as well as other American
food products cost three to four times as
much there as they do here at home.
I'll bet I was the only person going
through customs with peanut butter in
I flew from St. Louis to New Orleans
via Delta — my first jet ride. It was
quite exciting, though a little rough.
From New Orleans I flew directly to
Guatemala City via Taca Airlines, a
Central American line which provided
very smooth and friendly service.
After leaving St. Louis with six
inches of snow on the ground, I was
overjoyed to be greeted by the warm
Guatemalan sunshine and temperature
in the upper 70's. Most of all, though,
it was wonderful being greeted by that
handsome, smiling (and sun-burned)
Peace Corps Volunteer who was wav-
ing to me from a balcony overlooking
the airfield. Somehow I muddled
through customs, not understanding a
word of the Spanish directed to me by
the officials. I just smiled, shrugged
my shoulders, and thrust my passport
into their hands.
I was in Guatemala for ten exciting
days. And in that time Arnold was able
to show me quite a lot of the country
and of the Indian way of life. I hardly
know where to start in telling you of
my impressions, but I suppose I'll begin
with Guatemala City, the capital and
only large city of the country. It is a
bustling metropolis with most, if not all,
of the advantages of a large city in the
U.S. One of the unusual aspects of the
city, however, is that on every side there
are seemingly contradictory extremes.
The number of expensive American
and foreign cars was surprising to me.
At the same time, so were the many
wooden carts loaded with products,
which were pulled by the Indian men
themselves. In the same city block, one
could see women dressed in the latest
and most fashionable styles, as well as
Indian women dressed in their tra-
ditional long and multi-colored cos-
This situation, political scientists tell
us, is the tragedy of most of Central
and South America. There is no mid-
dle class to speak of. The people can
be divided into two classes: the
wealthy and the destitute. Not only is
this class division evident in the city.
The same classification also exists out
in the country, where the wealthy
people are finca (ranch) owners. These
ranchers own great tracts of land, which
are worked by Indian laborers for only
fifty cents a day. A whole village of
Indians often will be employed by one
rich finca owner, in almost feudalistic
system. One of the main objectives of
the Peace Corps in Guatemala, Arnold
tells me, is to help raise the economic
situation of these Indians who live in
the outlying villages.
Arnold works in a small village,
Patzicia, in the state of Chimaltenango,
which is located on the Pan-American
Highway only two hours' drive west
from Guatemala City. He is living
there with Pat and Cliff Gruver, a
young married couple who are also in
Peace Corps service. Their work in
Patzicia has many facets. Since their
group of volunteers is sponsored by the
National Grange, much of their work
is agricultural. In addition to this, they
have built and partially stocked a li-
brary — Patzicia's first. Arnold is
teaching five English classes a week.
Pat is teaching nutrition and sewing to
the village women. And soon Cliff will
be starting carpentry classes. Arnold
is also directing several youth activities:
soccer, soft-ball, girls' basketball, and
the equivalent of a 4-H Club for the
I was relieved to find that Arnold's
home in Patzicia is fairly comfortable.
He and the Gruvers are renting a four
room house which is about a foot from
the Pan-American Highway. (All of
the houses are built right on the street.)
There are two large patios behind the
house, both of which are enclosed by
an adobe wall. In the back patio is a
small vegetable garden, and a place to
keep livestock. In the patio nearest the
house is a water faucet (quite a lux-
ury), an out-door sink for washing
clothes and (under construction) a
kitchen with a wood burning stove!
I was very impressed by the friendli-
ness of the villagers in Patzicia. So
many of them came to see me to ex-
press their pleasure at meeting "la
novia de Arnaldo." Although I could
say only "mucho gusto" and smile, I
hope they realized how much I en-
joyed seeing them. All of them seemed
so very eager to learn about the United
States. And they could say a few words
in English, most commonly "thank
you", "hello", and "Pepsi Cola".
Arnold and I were lucky to be able
to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas
day in one of the most beautiful resorts
in Guatemala, Lake Atitlan. This is
one of the highest and largest natural
lakes in the world. It is ringed on all
sides by mountains and volcanoes, one
of which is still active. It was so
beautiful on a clear day to see the white
smoke gently rising from the mountain
The weather is warmer at the lake
than in the city, so we were able to go
swimming both days. The warmer
climate also enables trees and flowers
of many varieties to bloom all year
'round. I was so excited at seeing
oranges, pineapples and bananas grow-
ing. Carnations and poinsettias were
blooming all over the countryside. You
can imagine how brilliantly-colored the
After leaving the lake we took a side
trip to Chichicastenango, an Indian vil-
lage which is way back up in the moun-
tains. We bumped and jogged along
a dirt road until I thought my insides
were tangled beyond repair. Finally we
reached the village and looked up an-
other Peace Corps Volunteer who
works there. Dick Hedge is a St. Louis
boy who is working in association with
a hospital clinic for the Indians in this
village. While in Chichi we saw some
fascinating Indian ceremonial dances. I
hope all my slides turn out well.
The excursion which was perhaps the
most exciting to me was the bus trip
Arnold and I took to the Pacific coast
of Guatemala. We traveled on an
Indian bus nearly 150 miles for only
$1.00 each. These buses, which are
school buses bought from the U.S. and
Germany, are the life-line of the Indian
economy. The Indians travel to market
on the buses, carrying their products,
which may be large heads of cabbage,
corn, sugar cane, chickens, turkeys, and
even hogs. The inanimate bundles are
tied on the top of the bus. Sometimes
the frisky hogs are tied on top also,
squealing for all they are worth! The
chickens and turkeys come inside — with
Our destination was the port of San
Jose, Guatemala's largest Pacific port.
There, as elsewhere, the scenery was
beautiful. The sand on the beach was
black, something unusual to me.
Arnold said that it is because of the
I met so many nice people while I
was in Guatemala: other Peace Corps
Volunteers, some American Friends
working in the country, Arnold's boss-
es and several of his Guatemalan
I'm sure I have not covered every-
thing in this long epistle. If you have
any specific question about matters that
I did not touch, please write me, or
better yet, write Arnold. He could
answer your questions much better.
After all, I'm only a ten day "authority"
And so for now, hasta la vista and
vaya con Dios.

Arnold's address in Guatemala, you

Alumni participation in the For-
ward Oglethorpe Fund has "paid off".
The Gulf Oil Corporation awarded
Oglethorpe a grant in the amount of
$437.00 for unrestricted use.
This grant was one of some 692
awards totaling $500,000 that Gulf will
distribute this year as direct, unre-
stricted grants to as many Universities
and Colleges under its Aid to Educa-
This grant to Oglethorpe was calcu-
lated on the basis of a formula which
takes into account the quality of the
school's curriculum, the effectiveness
of its program and the amount of
financial support provided by the
Institutions eligible for direct grants
are those which are privately operated
and controlled and which obtain a
major portion of their financial sup-
port from non-tax sources.
The check was presented to Dr.
George Seward, acting president of
Oglethorpe by Mr. J. H. Griffith, Area
Sales Manager of Gulf Oil.

Luke Appling is Elected to Baseball's
Hall of Fame in Coopertown
Luke Appling, '32, has become
101st baseball player to be elected to
the Hall of Fame at Cooperstown,
New York. The elections took place
this past Winter.
Lucian "Bird" Hope, '21 coached
Appling in high school days at Fulton
High School. Following his gradua-
tion there, Appling played 2 seasons
at Oglethorpe under Frank Anderson
and then went on to the major leagues
where he played 2,442 games with
2,218 of them as shortstop.
In 1958, Appling ended his career
in the major leagues and began as
manager for Memphis in the Southern
Association. Last season, he was a
coach with Baltimore and this coming
season, he will be with the Athletics
at Bradenton as batting coach.
HALL OF FAME TO INDUCT
THREE NEW MEMBERS
Oglethorpe University's most distin-
guished service award in athletics,
membership into the athletic HALL
OF FAME, is expected to be bestowed
on three individuals during homecom-
ing exercises Saturday, May 16th.
Established three years ago, to rec-
ognize outstanding contributions to the
Oglethorpe University athletic pro-
gram, the award has achieved a coveted
status among its recipients, it was
created by the Oglethorpe Booster Club
to recognize not only those who have
actually participated in the sports pro-
gram, but those who have given unself-
ishly of their time and ability to for-
ward the progress of the program.
The 1964 inductees will be installed
following a noon luncheon and Booster
Club meeting on the 16th. Co-chairman
for the project are Ed Miles and Ansel
Former inductees into the hall of
fame include Luke Appling, who this
year was named to baseball's hall of
fame, Harry Robertson, Garland Pin-
holster, Frank Anderson Sr., Sy Bell,
Adrian Maurer, Steve Schmidt, L. N.
Turk, and Clay Parish.
Although the names and number of
the 1964 inductees have not been made
public, it was safely assumed there
would be no more than three new

The same common ailment effected
tennis and baseball on the O.U. campus
this spring — inexperience. But a slow
start in both sports is suddenly round-
ing into promising signs.
In baseball, Coach Billy Carter's
boys have recorded (at publication
time) a record of 2-5, but the two
victories are consecutive after five de-
The Petrel baseballers were hurt
early by the ineligibility of five boys
who figured prominently in spring
plans. However, the sudden develop-
ment of several freshmen and the
steady contributions of the few return-
ing lettermen have enhanced chances
for a .500 or better season.
Oglethorpe's two victories have been
over Erskine (3-2) and Berry (3-2).
In the Berry victory, pitcher-outfielder
Larry Abner hurled a seven-hit gem
and struck out 13 men, including
Berry's cleanup batter five times.
Abner, Bob Moreland, Roy Cowart,
Ben Hargrove and Bobby Sexton are
the proven performers. Freshmen
Larry Shattles at shortstop, Charlie
Stepp at third and Jimmy Copeland at
first, have all exhibited calm under fire.
The catching, which has been a con-
cern on the O.U. campus since the de-
parture of Tommy Norwood two years
ago, is handled by capable Robert
"We've been fairly pleased with the
progress," said Coach Carter. "Cold
and wet weather hampered us early,
and the loss of those boys before the
season started, but the team is getting
accustomed to switching around and
I feel we could make, or better, .500
for the season.
"The pitching is pleasing. Abner's
game was encouring and we have good
men in Cowart, Moreland, Hargrove
and Sexton, plus Jabo Johnson. Then,
too, we've cut down on errors. They
really hurt at first but we only made
one in the last two games."
The tennis team, coached this year by
athletic director Garland Pinholster,
has gone through some of the same
problems as the baseball team, and,
like baseball, has solved most of them.
At publication date, the Petrels had
accomplished a 4-3 record, which
speaks well of a team depleted by
"We lost three of the first six men
from last year," Coach Pinholster said.
"We've filled in with intramural boys
and they've responded wonderfully."
The three returnees are Bill Pate,
Ray Thomas and Dan Cowart. The
three intramural graduates are Bob
McMains, Hoyt Wagoner and Hank
Alexander. Also Clark Raby has made
Pate, the No. 1 singles man, has lost
only one match while winning six.
Thomas is No. 2 in singles; Cowart,
No. 3; Raby, No. 4; McMains, No. 5,
and Alexander, No. 6. Wagoner would
be listed, except for illness.
No. 1 doubles team is Pate and
Thomas, followed, in order, by Raby-
Cowart and McMain-Alexander.
"A lot of people put emphasis on
the No. 1 and 2 man in tennis," said
Coach Pinholster, "but that sixth man
is just as important. His point counts
just as much, and we've been getting
fine play out of those boys, especially
Alexander. He's a fine competitor.
"Thomas, who was hurt in basket-
ball, is not quite up to snuff yet, but
he is gradually coming around. This
is good for him, helps strengthen his
The Petrel tennis team has defeated
Cumberland, Shorter, West Georgia
and Berry. There are seven more
matches to go and Coach Pinholster is
confident his boys will do well.
"We really want to be right for
Homecoming day," Pinholster empha-
sized. "The tennis team plays Georgia
State in the morning and the baseball
team takes on Valdosta State in the
afternoon. It will be a big day for our
spring sports program."
Robert Clark, '32, founder of Clark
Manufacturing Company, has been re-
quested by the US Department of Com-
merce to exhibit his rotary lawn mow-
ers in the Foire de Paris this coming
