Mrs, Vincent to Head Alumni 

for 1965-66 

The Annual Meeting of the National 
Alumni Association of Oglethorpe Col- 
lege was recently held on campus. In 
attendance for the annual event were 
some 300 persons from 21 states and 
one foreign country. 

Presiding over the meeting in the 
auditorium was E. P. Jones, Alumni 
President. The annual fund report for 
the Forward Oglethorpe Program was 
presented by Francis S. Key. He re- 
ported the total donations at date to be 
$17,979, an increase of $2,066 over 
the amount of this time last year. 

Following the progress report, Jones 
recognized Oglethorpe administrators 
James E. Findlay, Dr. George C. 
Seward, and Garland F. Pinholster and 
Stormy Petrel editors in attendance. 

In a poll of "Who came the further- 
est??" alumni stood up from Illinois, 
Florida, Connecticut, Ohio, and Mexi- 
co. Mrs. Liz Mathieu Frias from Mexi- 
co City was recognized as the alumnus 
who traveled the furthest for the an- 
nual events. 


"This next item should have hap- 
pened many years ago," said the 
alumni president in his introduction of 
Chip Mobley, president of the new 
Science Oglethorpe program. 

Mobley noted that Science Ogle- 
thorpe was organized on the day fol- 
lowing Alumni Day 1964. Mobley re- 
lated that the organization is currently 
composed of 40 members, and said, 
"So far our most significant accom- 
plishment is the publication of the 
Science Oglethorpe brochure." 

The current projects of the new or- 
ganization are the sponsorship of three 

science scholarships, aid to the biology 
division with raising funds for the Na- 
tional Science Foundation grant which 
must be matched, and conduction of a 
membership drive. Mobley concluded, 
"We are off to a good start, but we 
need your help." 


Plaques were presented to the Class 
of 1948 for "providing the largest total 
contribution to the Oglethorpe Alma 
Mater," and to the Classes of 1929 and 
1954 for "providing the largest num- 
ber of contributing members to the 
Oglethorpe Alma Mater." 

In introducing Dr. Paul R. Beall, 
Jones referred to the new president as 
"... a man who has meant much to 
Oglethorpe in a short period of time, 
... a man who is best described as 
a real sport, and a man who needs no 

Dr. Beall said, "I cannot tell you 
how satisfying and rewarding it is for 
myself to be associated with you." He 
added, "I am proud of you and think 
we are going far together." 

Following his greeting, Dr. Beall was 
presented with a pair of book-ends on 
which were engraved the Oglethorpe

Music Studio to be 

Harry M. Dobson, assistant pro- 
fessor of music at Oglethorpe announc- 
es that his music studio is to be com- 
pletely revamped this summer. The 
improvements will include the addition 
of an accoustical ceiling, new cabinets 
for books and records, new furniture, 
draperies and carpeting. The studio 
will also be air-conditioned. 

The expenses of the remodeling of 
the workshop are being contributed by 
Mr. Mills B. Lane, Jr., one of Atlanta's 
leading bankers. The gift was secured 
by Miss Betsy Primm, a recent gradu- 

Plans for the studio have been drawn 
by William Trapnell, an Atlanta inter- 
ior decorator. He will oversee the con- 
struction and the decorating of the 
room. Dobson added that Mr. Trapnel 
has graciously donated his services to 
the school in order that the consulting 
fee might be used to buy records for 
the music department. 

Approximately $6,500 is to be spent 
on the remodeling and construction 
will begin shortly. 

First Inaugural Ceremonies in Modern 

History of 0C Install Dr. Beall as 


Rev. Fitihugh Legerfon delivers the Charge of office to Dr. Beall 

In a ceremony unprecedented in the 
modern history of Oglethorpe College, 
Dr. Paul R. Beall was formally inaugu- 
rated as Oglethorpe's tenth president, 
May 15. 

Over 650 alumni, students, and 
guests present at Oglethorpe's field 
house witnessed the inaugural proces- 
sion, led by Marshals of the College, 
Leo Bilancio and Harry M. Dobson. 

Following the marshals in order of 
procession were members of Ogle- 
thorpe's Senior Class and faculty, del- 
egates from 156 colleges and univer- 
sities and 30 learned societies, trustees 
of the college, and the inaugural party. 

Following the invocation, given by 
The Rev. Father Michael A. Morris, 
the combined choruses of Oglethorpe 
and St. Martin-in-the-Fields Episcopal 
Church sang "Go and Subdue." 

Robert L. Foreman, chairman of 
Oglethorpe's trustees, who presided, 
recognized official representatives of 
the inaugural party. 

Frank Hughes, president of Ogle- 
thorpe's student body, welcomed those 
present at the inauguration and said, 
"Dr. Beall, in the short period he has 
been among us, has already taken great 
strides toward the building of stronger 

and more effective ties between the 
students, and the faculty and adminis- 
tration. I know that I speak for all stu- 
dents when I state that I am certain 
Dr. Beall's administration will continue 
to be fruitful in providing the finest 
liberal arts education possible for the 
students of the College." 

"We are convinced," said E. P. 
Jones, president of Oglethorpe's Alum- 
ni Association, "we have in Dr. Beall 
the quality of leadership that will make 
Oglethorpe a growing institution." 

"We are happy to join forces with 
you in promoting through the educa- 
tion of the next generation all of those 
great unfinished items of business on 
the agenda of civilization . . .," said 
Dr. George C. Seward, Dean of the 
College speaking for the faculty and 
added, "Success in this endeavor is 
dependent upon cooperation between 
administration and faculty . . . We 
pledge to you our support and coopera- 
tion in the achievement of our mutual 

Dr. Donald C. Agnew, speaking in 
behalf of former presidents at Ogle- 
thorpe, said Dr. Beall has "all my very 
good wishes and I'm sure, the good 
wishes and congratulations of those 
who preceded me at Oglethorpe."

The Flying Petrel 

Fitzhugh Legerton, Minister of the 
Oglethorpe Presbyterian Church ad- 
ministered the charge, Dr. Beall replied 
that he would try to move Oglethorpe 
forward "with all my heart, with all my 
strength and energies ..." 

Foreman completed the installation 
of Dr. Beall, and a prayer by Rev. 
Legerton followed. 

In Dr. BeaH's response as president 
of Oglethorpe, he stated, "I appreciate 
the honor you have bestowed upon me 
today, but I am mindful that honors 
carry obligations . . ." 

He commented, "As educators, we 
have an awesome responsibility to dis- 
cover new knowledge and equally a 
responsibility to inspire, teach and gen- 
erate such wisdom that that knowledge 
may be beneficially employed." 

"We must educate and inspire the 
men and women who tomorrow must 
meet and solve problems already with 
us today." 

The audience sang Oglethorpe's 
Alma Mater after Dr. Beall's response 
and Hans Erman, Jewish Educational 
Bureau director, gave the benediction. 

Following the recessional, official 
representatives and guests were invited 
to attend a buffet luncheon in Ogle- 
thorpe's quadrangle. 

(greeting from \5ne 


The year 1965-66 promises to be the 
best year that Oglethorpe College has 
ever known. 

Dr. Paul Beall is moving forward at 
a rapid pace with many plans and he 
is a real stem winder. 

The National Alumni Association 
of Oglethorpe College certainly sup- 
ports Dr. Beall in every way and we 
want to move forward with the College. 

The Inauguration and Alumni Day 
was a huge success and those of you 
who had to miss all of the festivities 
really missed something to be remem- 

It is my plan to give the very best 
that I have to the progress of the Na- 
tional Alumni Association of Ogle- 
thorpe College and for the Forward 
Oglethorpe campaign.

Inaugural Assembly 

Dr. Reser Chosen for Overseas Program 

Dr. Richard M. Reser, professor of 
sociology, has announced that he will 
be on leave next year from Oglethorpe 
College. Dr. Reser will take part in an 
overseas faculty program, the Euro- 
pean Theater, under the direction of 
the University of Maryland. 

Under this program, Dr. Reser said 
that faculty volunteers are "assigned 
to teach classes held at over 100 mili- 
tary institutions throughout Europe." 
Dr. Reser is one of the two teachers 
who has been appointed to the Euro- 
pean Theater to teach sociology on a 
full-time basis. In addition, approxi- 
mately 25 instructors will teach on a 
part-time basis. 

The European Theater is one of the 
three programs (Atlantic, Asiatic, and 
European Theaters) which are primari- 
ly designed for teaching military per- 
sonnel at military bases throughout the 
world, said Dr. Reser. 


Dr. and Mrs Reser plan to leave for 
Europe around the middle of July or 
August. Dr. Reser said if he and his 
wife leave during the middle of July 
they will have the opportunity to tour 
Europe for a month. If not, they plan 
to report on Heidelberg, Germany, cen- 
tral headquarters of the European 
Theater, August 28. 

The Resers will fly to Europe by 
either "commercial or military" plane. 
They will take a car in Heidelberg, 
Germany, as soon as they arrive. Dr. 
Reser added that he would have mili- 
tary privileges but not military rank. 
"The educational advisor at each base 
makes available accommodations and 
apartments. We will probably live off 
the base," said Dr. Reser. 


"Classes start on September 12," Dr. 
Reser said. I will teach four night 
classes a week. "We teach in one place 
for eight weeks, and then we are moved 
to another area. There is a 10-day 
break between each eight week ses- 
sion." Dr. Reser added that he did not 
know in which areas of Europe he 
would be teaching as the teaching as- 
signments depend upon registration. 

"This trip will be a tremendously 
valuable experience, particularly in my 
field of anthropology and sociology, 
studying various cultures of Europe," 
stated Dr. JAeser. "This will be an ideal 
chance to study the sociology of the 
military in peacetime." 

Dr. Reser said he and his wife are 
"very enthusiastic" about this trip. He 
added that this will be his first trip to 
Europe, although he has been to every 
other continent in the world.

Oglethorpe Sports 

Basketballs in July? The familiar 
sound of rubber against hardwood is 
very much in evidence during the 
month of July as Coach Garland Pin- 
holster conducts his sixth annual 
basketball camp. 

The first weekly session drew a full 
house with 72 male basketballers and 
60 girl cheerleaders reporting. The 
second and third weeks feature boys' 
and girls' basketball and baton twirling. 

Several familiar faces are among the 
instructors assisting Coach Pinholster. 
They are: Morris Mitchell, '63, who 
coaches at Pope Pius X in DeKalb 
County; Wayne Dobbs, '61, who is the 
cage mentor at Belmont College in 

Nashville, and Coach Pat Stephens, '59 
of Druid Hills High School. Current 
Petrel players Bill Garrigan, Doug 
Alexander, and Walker Heard fill out 
the instruction team. 

Three high school teams invaded the 
camp en masse. Cullman (Ala.) High, 
Baylor Prep from Chattanooga, and 
North Hardin High from Vine Grove, 
Ky. are the schools being represented. 

Coach Leon Braddock of North 
Hardin paid the Petrel's Pinholster a 
real compliment recently in the Ken- 
tucky press. He said: "We had three 
summer camps definitely in mind. We 
selected Oglethorpe's camp over 
Georgetown and N. C. State because 

Miss Killan elected 
to AWRT 

Margaret Kilian '30 program director 
of Station WABE in Atlanta, has been 
elected for a two-year term as a direc- 
tor-at-large of the American Women in 
Radio and Television, Inc. at a con- 
vention held in New York City this 
past spring. 

Miss Kilian is also president of the 
President's Council in Atlanta, a group 
of 30 leaders of professional women's 

of Coach Pinholster's apparent ap- 
proach to teaching fundamentals. I am 
informed that Pinholster is one of the 
outstanding fundamentalists in the 
coaching ranks." A great slap on the 
back for the Wheel's Wagonmaster, 
since the N. S. State camp has a pro- 
prietor named Everett Case, the man 
who probably has done more than any- 
one to bring big-time collegiate basket- 
ball to the South. 

Basketball recruiting is just about 
over and Coach Pinholster reports that 
several outstanding athletes have 
signed grant-in-aid pacts with Ogle- 
thorpe. A prize catch was Earl Blair, 
a 6-2 guard from Elizabethtown, Ky. 
whose potential is ranked by Pinholster 
and Co. to be along the lines of Tom 
Norwood, '62. 

To quote Pinholster: "Earl's tre- 
mendous ability coupled with a high 
IQ means that he should gain a posi- 
tion of leadership and play a lot of ball 
during his freshman year." 

Blair's high school coach, Hardin 
McLane says that Earl is a real coach 
on the floor and saves a ball club many 
time outs. McLane flatly stated that 
Blair had more cage savvy than any 
player he has ever coached. Fans will 
remember Elizabethtown Catholic as 
the school which also produced Jimbo 
Hartlage, '65. 

Blair was heartily sought by Army, 
a good indication of the lad's scholas- 
tic abilities. 

Another strapping 6-1 guard named 
Jim Hoggarth is also in the Petrel fold. 
Jim hails from Nashville, Tennessee, 
where he matriculated at DuPont High 
School, which had a 26-3 record this 
past cage season. Jim will also boost 
Bill Carter's Petrel baseballers. He 
was a catcher at DuPont. Scholas- 
tically, Jim is also a thoroughbred — 
he ranked fourth in his senior class of

Filling out the guard posts among 
the new recruits are 6-1 Ronnie 
Clevenger from Alexandria, Va., and 
Brown High School's Jerry Lee who 
also stands an inch over six feet. 

The frontcourtmen are BIG! Three 
of the men up front hail from Illinois. 
Centers Al Smith, 6-5 from Danville 
and Mike Dahl, 6-5 from Libertyville 
and Forward J. P. Bruzek, 6-5, from 
Lamont were all Illinois high schoolers. 
Tallest of the new recruits is Center 
Paul O'Shields who towers at 6-7 and 
calls Pickens, S. C, home. One-inch 
shorter from Fayetteville, N. Y., is for- 
ward Tom Thomas. 

Remember, some of these boys are 
possibly still growing!
