Weltner is Commencement Speaker 



Charles Weltner 



Congressman Charles L. Weltner, 
Representative from the 5th District of 
Georgia and also a 1948 graduate of 
Oglethorpe was the commencement 
speaker for the 89th commencement 
exercises of the University. Here, for 
those unable to attend, is the text of 
his speech. 



"President Agnew, Trustees of Ogle- 
thorpe, members of the faculty, and 
members of the class of 1963. 

I am deeply honored by your invita- 
tion to address you on this most im- 
portant and significant occasion. This 



is a joyful and happy day for each of 
you and for your loved ones. It is one 
that you will remember throughout 
your lives — and I thank you for per- 
mitting me to share in it. 

It is always good to come home. 
And Oglethorpe University is most as- 
suredly "Home" to me. For better 
than half of my life, I have enjoyed 
association with this college. And, 
quite naturally, this campus looms 
large in my store of pleasant memories. 
As a student, an instructor, and, more 
recently, even as a politician, I have 
found here valuable and lasting help.

I would talk with you this afternoon 
in something other than the usual role 
of the commencement speaker. You 
and I share a great treasure — an educa- 
tion at Oglethorpe. As fellow gradu- 
ates, let us examine for a moment the 
meaning of our diplomas. 

Well, it means, for one thing, that 
we have given the necessary months 
and years here. It means we have 
given the required tuition and fees. It 
means that we have given at least 
something of our intellect and energy 
in study. Yes, we have given to receive 
this treasured document. 

But our giving — our contribution — 
is as nothing in comparison to what we 
have received. Someone wrote the 
phrase "I am heir of all the ages" — and 
how magnificent is that heritage. The 
understanding and knowledge we have 
acquired here is not our own, but a 
distillate, a composite of the minds of 
countless scholars and sages, reaching 
back into the dim mists of antiquity. 
Scholars have forsaken every pleasure 
that earth offers in pursuit of some 
small bit of comprehension — and we 
are their heir. Patriots laid down their 
lives and fortunes to establish the great 
principles of government under which 
we live — and we are their heir. Sol-

diers faced the cannon's mouth, and 
the deadly rain of steel to preserve our 
freedom — and we are their heir. 

Yes, we are the heir of the whole 
body of human wisdom — the whole 
measure of human freedom. What did 
we give for our heritage? A few years, 
a few dollars, a few exertions of the 
mind. We have given but little, and re- 
ceived much. 

One hundred and thirty years ago, a 
charter was granted, establishing Ogle- 
thorpe University near Milledgeville, 
Georgia. Those men of so long ago 
nourished and nurtured a dream that 
was crushed some thirty years later, 
when the faculty and students of Old 
Oglethorpe put aside the scholar to 
assume the soldier. Fifty years later, 
another man rekindled that dream, and 
set about to build anew here on this 
spot. Hundreds — thousands — gave of 
their wealth that these buildings might 
rise. They gave, and gave again. But 
adversity seems to be a part" of Ogle- 
thorpe's legacy, and again, now some 
thirty years thereafter, she found her- 
self once again upon evil times. There 
was, then, another man, with a new 
dream for Oglethorpe. And once again, 
he began to rebuild — not with stone 
and steel, but by concept and char- 



acter. Today, men and women are still 
giving. Your loved ones have given, 
that you might come here. Strangers 
to us, but not to Oglethorpe, have 
given. The members of this faculty- 
past and present — have given. And we 
are their heirs. 

Let us then be mindful of what we 
have received— for it is infinitely 
greater than what we have given. Let 
us acknowledge our great debt — to his- 
tory — to country — to university — and 
to loved ones. 

This then, is the true meaning of this 
time of commencement — not your 
achievement, but that of your bene- 
factors. Not the end of learning, but 
only the beginning. Not the comple- 
tion of your work, but only the tools 
for the greater work ahead. Not the 
discharge of obligations to our school, 
but the start. 

Nothing in Oglethorpe's history has 
come to her without struggle. How 
well named is the Stormy Petrel, for 
there have been many storms in which 
to fly! How apt her motto "Nescit 
Cedere," "He Did Not Know How to 
Give Up," for had our founders and 
builders been lesser men, we would 
not be here. 

Thus, in the history of our past, we 
find a guideline for our future. Be 
prepared to fly in the face of any storm. 
Nescit Cedere! Don't Give Up! 

A favorite verse is found in Long- 
fellow's poem "The Ladder of St. 
Augustine." 
Heights that great men reached and 

kept 

Were not attained by sudden flight 
But they, while their companions slept 
Were toiling upward in the night. 

If we are mindful of our deep and 
abiding obligation to this university — 
if we are worthy of the sacrifices that 
have been made for us — there will be 
many nights of toiling upward. 

If we are worthy heirs of our heri- 
tage and dutiful beneficiaries of our old 
university, we will welcome a life of 
toil — for only toil is the road that leads 
upward. 

Let us therefore be grateful for our 
many gifts. Let us never forget the 
good years we spent here. And, let us 
be about the business of life — and go 
to work!" 

The Flying Petrel 



Record Enrollment for 
Summer School 

Oglethorpe University's first session 
of Summer School opened with a rec- 
ord enrollment of 328. Regular stu- 
dents represented 103 of those enrolled 
with 8 new students and 59 transient 
and special students. Teachers-in- 
service, taking advantage of the sum- 
mer vacation, form nearly half the day- 
time students. Review courses in High 
School mathematics and English are 
being offered in addition to twenty- 
three courses from the regular curric- 
ulum and two special courses in history. 

Dr. Martin Abbott teaches the spe- 
cial history courses that treat in depth 
the American South, 1607-1860 and 
the Civil War and Reconstruction Era. 

This year for the first time there are 
Summer Evening classes with 102 en- 
rolled. This brings the total summer 
enrollment to 430. The Evening classes 
are on the regular quarter system. 
Ten courses are being taught, among 
them a seminar on the problems of 
education. 

Twenty-two courses will be available 
during the second day session of sum- 
mer school. 



Here, There and Yon . . . 

Summer is not idly spent with the 
faculty and students of Oglethorpe this 
year. Travel, study, research, teaching 
and work is the story. 

Of the faculty, 6 are doing work on 
their Ph.D. degrees. 

The Wendell Browns will travel the 
New England states and take in the 
Shakespearian Festival being held in 
Stratford, Ontaria, Canada. 

Dr. and Mrs. Cheever Cressy will 
tour France, Germany, the Nether- 
lands, Sweden, and Denmark. Their 
trip also will include a two week stay 
in London at which time they will visit 
with the Lindsey Coulborns in Essex. 

Dr. and Mrs. Arthur Bieler will 
spend the summer in France at the 
University of Besancon, where Dr. 
Bieler is doing further study. 

Dr. Martin Abbott will participate 



in a three week American Studies Sem- 
inar at Falkstein, Germany for German 
graduate students planning to become 
university professors. 

Mr. Grady Randolph has been 
granted a Fulbright Scholarship to par- 
ticipate in the 1963 Institute in Chinese 
Civilization at Tunghai University at 
Taichung Taiwan (Formosa). 

Dr. Richard Reser is going for 10 
weeks to the University of Colorado to 
attend a Summer Institute in An- 
thropology. This is being sponsored 
by the American Science Foundation. 

Mrs. Kennedy Hodges, wife of Dr. 
Hodges, chemistry professor, will be 
touring the Eastern European countries 
for two months. She will be concen- 
trating her travels to see how the Iron 
Curtain countries educate children who 
are mentally and physically handi- 
capped. Mrs. Hodges will visit Russia, 
Poland, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia of 
the Communist countries. Denmark, 
Norway, Israel, Turkey, Jordan, 
Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal will 
also be visited. 

Dr. Ignacio Merino, Spanish profes- 
sor, is devoting his summer to teaching 
Cuban refugee children in the Atlanta 
area. A refugee from Castro himself, 
Dr. Merino has been appointed Direc- 
tor of a summer school designed to 
give Cuban children a background in 
the geography, history, civics and lan- 
guage of Cuba. These subjects are not 
taught in the public schools of Atlanta 
thus the special school. The school will 
be staffed by qualified Cuban teachers 
on a volunteer basis. 

The students are just as busy as the 
faculty. There are approximately 130 
regular students enrolled in summer 
courses on the campus. Two science 
students Dennis Kerr of Jacksonville, 
Fla. and John Lipham of Atlanta are 
training in research projects at Oak 
Ridge; Conan Rudd and Marty Gil- 
reath are with the "Theater Under the 
Stars" productions. Conan as the tech- 
nical director and Marty will sing and 
act in the production "Call Me 
Madam." 

Cherry Hodges will serve an intern- 
ship in Charles Weltner's office in 
Washington. There are a number of 
Humanics students working and train- 
ing in nearby Scout camps and one 
student is on a scout ranch in Arizona. 



1963 

And Away We Go - 

Teaching, business, housekeeping 
and graduate study are among the fields 
Oglethorpe's 1963 graduating class will 
be entering. Teaching with eighteen 
graduates is represented with the larg- 
est number entering one profession. 
Primarily they are going into elemen- 
tary and high school teaching, with one 
student on the Research faculty at 
Georgia Tech. Most of the new teach- 
ers plan to remain in Atlanta and the 
surrounding area, although Savannah, 
Ga. and Raleigh, N. C. will also have 
teachers from Oglethorpe. 

Three of the graduates planning to 
continue their education are entering 
the Ministry. Ken Borden and Jack 
Turpin are going to Columbia Semi- 
nary and Layman Edward Kelly will 
enter Emory University's Seminary. 

The Medical College of Georgia and 
Georgia Tech will both have Ogle- 
thorpe graduates attending. 

In the Technical fields, Miss Joyce 
Tebeau is employed as a Medical Tech- 
nologist and Mrs. Martha Mobley will 
be working as a Research Physicist. 

Two students will be working for the 
IBM Corporation. Lynn Drury will be 
trained in the application of computers 
to Government work and eventually 
enter research. Thomas Winn will be 
trained to be a computer programer. 
Walter Music will be employed by the 
Bell Telephone Laboratories and at- 
tend graduate school at Duke Uni- 
versity. 

A Peace Corps member and two Dis- 
trict Executives in Professional Scout- 
ing are also among the graduates. Only 
three students are going directly into 
the Armed Services. 

Many of the ladies are becoming 
housewives, a full time profession. Sev- 
eral graduates are still undecided about 
the field they will enter.

By KEN DAVIS 

Although the Oglethorpe baseball 
team has not had one of its best sea- 
sons this year, it has come through 
when it counted, to down such foes as 
the University of Georgia. 

Without a doubt, the Petrel nine has 
missed the batting and all round skill 
of former ace Tommy Norwood (now 
playing with the Chattanooga farm 
team), pitcher Johnnie Guthrie, and 
infielder Jay Rowland. However, this 
year's team has not stopped to worry 
about past problems or trophies. 

The team began its season and 
played three complete games before 
the whole team even had time to prac- 
tice together, due to many of the play- 
ers just getting back from the national 
tournament on the basketball front. 

The first encounter was dropped to 
the Virginia Military Academy, in At- 
lanta, by a score of 4-1. This was on 
March 28. In the following two days 
the Petrels fell victim to the hard- 
hitting team of their recent basketball 
foe, Carson-Newman of Tennessee. 
The first game ended with the Petrels 
on the short end of a 16-3 score while 
the second game ended 10-0. 

At this point, Oglethorpe fans were 
beginning to shy away from baseball 
discussions. Things weren't looking too 
good with the next encounter to be 
with the University of Georgia while 
the Petrels were practicing. When the 
Bulldogs arrived on that fateful day of 
April 1, they were in for one of the 
biggest April Fool jokes ever played in 
Georgia. 

While Georgia put forth its best in 
the form of former all-staters such as 
Don Woeltjen, Benny Cheek, and foot- 
ball players such as Larry Rakestraw, 
Oglethorpe assembled its unknowns, 
who proceeded to clip the Bulldog's 
tail. 

Both Larry Abner and Ken Borden 
hit home runs, just to show the big city 
boys that O.U. knew how to play ball, 
too. The Petrels collected six hits and 
two walks in the fourth inning and went 
on to win the game by a score of 8-7. 

On April 8, the baseball squad met 
with Berry College at Anderson Field 
and walked away with the win by a 
score of 3-2. The game went to eleven 
innings before the Petrels were able to 
pull away by a run. Morris Mitchell 
led the field of 7 hits with a home run 
in the sixth inning.

Four days later, in a return meeting 
with Berry in Rome, the Atlanta nine 
dropped a close decision by a score of 
9-8. Ben Hargrove picked up the loss 
as the losing pitcher, but the team al- 
most picked up the win, gaining a few 
runs each inning. After scoring twice 
in the first, the Petrels scored once in 
the third, once in the fourth, once in 
the fifth, once in the eighth, and twice 
in the ninth. 

The next game was with Wake For- 
est of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. 
The Atlanta team couldn't seem to find 
the range and got only three runs on 
seven hits to drop the game 13-3. 

The O.U. players bounced back on 
April 16 to beat Mercer University, an 
old basketball foe, by a score of 10-9. 
The Petrels picked up 10 runs on eight 
hits, led by Larry Abner with a home 
run in the sixth inning. Ben Hargrove 
picked up the win as the team won 
despite seven errors. 

Wheaton College of the greater Chi- 
cago area invaded the South on April 
19, and commenced to split a double- 
header with Oglethorpe. The Atlan- 
tans got the first blood when they 
picked up the first win 9-7. Larry Ab- 
ner was the winning pitcher as he got 
fine support from his team who had 14 
hits, 24 putouts, 7 assists, and no 
errors. 

The second game, on April 20, did 
not prove quite as successful, as the 
Yanks pulled ahead to win 4-2 by the 
end of the game. Bob Moreland tried 
to start the team off as he hit a home- 
run in the first inning, but this and one 
other in the third, were all that the 
team could produce. The team got 
only six hits while committing three 
errors which gave the final loss to Ben 
Hargrove. 

The next Petrel foe was Piedmont 
who revenged their recent basketball 
losses by downing the team by a score 
of 5-4. The team picked up three runs 
in the fifth inning and one more in the 
seventh led by Larry Abner who hit 
the only double of the afternoon. 

Then on April 27, Shorter College 
also defeated the O.U. team 4-1 at 
Anderson Field. Even though there 
were no errors, the Petrels could not 
seem to find the range after they scored 
their only run in the first inning. 

St. Bernard gave the Oglethorpe 
team its fourth defeat in a row on a 
2-0 score. The team only got five hits 



while committing one error as Roy 
Cowart picked up the loss. 

However, when the real opponent 
and foe appeared, the Petrel flew its 
highest. The team traveled to Athens 
to meet the University of Georgia and 
again picked up the win by a score of 
7-3. The team had 9 hits 10 assists 
against errorless defense. Roy Cowart 
led the hitters with a grand slam home- 
run in the third inning. 

Union College of Tennessee stepped 
into the picture next and dealt the team 
two decisive blows in succession, 10-0, 
and 6-3. 

On May 14, the Petrels won a fine 
game over Piedmont and revenged an 
earlier defeat by a score of 12-5. This 
was the second game of the season that 
two homeruns were hit by the O.U. 
team. Both Ben Hargrove and Roy 
Cowart put the ball over the fence for 
scores. 

Statistics as of the last University of 
Georgia game showed Larry Abner 
leading the individual batters with a 
.400 average, followed by Morris 
Mitchell with .370 and Ken Borden 
with .300.

The Flying Petrel 



Turk, Parrish and Schmidt 
Elected to the Hall of Fame 

Three more distinguished alumni 
joined the select ranks of Oglethorpe 
University's Athletic Hall of Fame at 
annual homecoming ceremonies in 
May. Plaques bearing the name of 
Dr. L. Newton Turk (baseball), Clay 
Parrish (baseball and football) and 
Steve Schmidt ("Mr. Booster") went 
up on the walls of the university's 
show-place field house to join those of 
six "charter members" chosen in the 
Hall's first balloting last year. 

These names, as well as the original 
6 were picked from a long list of nom- 
inations submitted by alumni and 
friends of the school, by an election 
committee composed of Ed Miles as 
chairman, Earl Mann, Frank Ander- 
son, Sr., John Patrick, Jim Hinson, 
Garland Pinholster, Luke Appling, An- 
sel Paulk and Ralph McGill. The 
plaques bear the following citation: 
"This honor is in recognition of out- 
standing contributions to the overall 
excellence of athletics at Oglethorpe 
and complete dedication to the univer- 
sity." The recipient's name and desig- 
nated category are inscribed below. 

Dr. Turk was one of the finest pitch- 
ers the collegiate world has ever seen, 
and a probable long major league ca- 
reer was eliminated when he decided to 
continue his studies towards the prac- 
tice of medicine. 

Clay Parrish, in addition to being 
one of the best of the early "long ball 
hitters," could also be described as a 
practicing exponent of the idea of 
"hard-nose" football. 

Steve Schmidt, named as vice presi- 
dent of Oglethorpe University Athletic 
Booster Club when it was organized 
some six years ago, was elected presi- 
dent of the organization in its second 
year and has served continuously in 
this capacity until retiring to the post of 
chairman of the board this year. Next 
to Coach Garland Pinholster, his con- 
tribution in time and effort has been 
the greatest single factor in raising the 
standards of the school's athletic pro- 
gram to its present level. 

Charter members of the Hall of 
Fame, elected in 1962 were Frank An- 
derson, Sr. (coach), Harry Robertson 
(coach), Luke Appling (baseball). 
Garland Pinholster (coach), Cy Bell 
(football) and Adrian Morrow (foot- 
ball). 

The Hall of Fame will be a continu- 
ing affair, with nominations solicited 
each spring before Homecoming, but 




Jim Holliday leads alumni meeting in plans for 1963-64 



The knowledge of fulfilling success- 
fully the duties we inherit as an alumnus 
is our reward. This bounty now belongs 
to Sam Hirsch, Jr. and the other offi- 
cers of our Alumni Association for 
their work during the past Adminis- 
tration. All of us have benefited and to 
each of you — our gratitude. 

As your incoming President, I pledge 
to each of you that a core of deter- 
mined, conscientious officers of our 
Alumni Association will do everything 
possible to further the goals of our 
great University. 

One of the first and greatest goals is 
to bring the Alumni together in an even 
more successful bond with their Alma 
Mater. 

If you could personally see the tre- 
mendous strides our school is now be- 
ginning to take, you would be mighty 
proud. 

Please keep us informed as to ways 
you think our Association can better 
achieve its purpose — that of aiding 
Oglethorpe University and her doors 
opened to us. 



each year's selections will be limited to 
three persons to be chosen by the elec- 
tion committee from the nominations 
submitted. 

The idea for such a select group of 
course is not new, but its adoption by 
the Oglethorpe University Athletic 
Boosters Club is simply another indica- 
tion of the vital and growing alumni 
support of the athletic program at the 
school. This year's program, incident- 
ally, culminated in national third place 
honors for the basketball team and a 
tennis team which went through the 
entire season unbeaten! 



Do We Outgrow Our Responsibility 

to Our Alma Mater? 

How often we remember with fond 
memories past associations in church, 
social, civic or business life. And cer- 
tainly we reflect upon our years "on 
campus" with utmost affection and a 
deep sense of joy. But do we fully 
realize that the continuation and pro- 
gress of our Alma Mater is directly de- 
pendent upon the support that we, as 
Alumni, give Oglethorpe? The first 
thing that is asked of those seeking 
Foundation support is, "How Many 
Alumni do you have?" "What is the 
total of their gifts?" "What percentage 
of your total alumni are making some 
contribution?" 

Someone has aptly said, "There are 
lots of excuses for not giving, but no 
real reasons." Do we promise ourselves 
that next year we are going to make 
a gift to our Alumni Association; next 
year we are going to attend Alumni 
Day; next year we are going to work 
with those Alumni we know to secure 
support for the Development Program; 
next year we will do better than we 
have ever done before in lending moral 
support and encouragement to the col- 
lege that did so much for us? 

Do we ever really stop and consider 
that no matter how grateful and thank- 
ful we are, for our Alma Mater, it 
doesn't mean anything until we express 
it in our actions. An active develop- 
ment program is under way with a defi- 
nite time table for the much awaited 
expansion. Is the missing ingredient 
our support? Will the ship not be 
launched on time because we didn't do 
our part at the right time — NOW! This 
is more than just a challenge — it is an 
opportunity. An opportunity that must 
be met and fulfilled by each and every 
alumni.
