Dear Friends: 

An alumni bulletin is pretty much a "family" affair — and properly 
so. Most of its contents concern matters of special interest to our own 
college people But it is a world-wide family inescapably concerned 
with world-wide events. Those who write and those who read these 
pages are keenly aware of the ominous possibilities in the days ahead. 
Yet in a very real sense the gravity of the times accents the significance 
of the very things about which we write and read. 

Maryville's Essential Service 

What could be more convincing evidence of the importance of 
Christian higher education than the tragic results of secular efficiency 
seen all over the world? What could make clearer the call to strengthen 
the foundations and facilities of the Christian college than the immense 
growth of state and other secular colleges? When has Maryville's min- 
istry been so essential? 

An Organized Opportunity 

The way a college serves is to gather students and make training available to them. It cannot really edu- 
catc them. It is but "an organized opportunity for self-education." Over the years it organizes faculty, cur- 
riculum, students, library, buildings, emphases, procedures. In this process 1947-1948 has been a good year, with 
the student body held down to workable size even though the largest thus far; with the new curriculum and 
Special Studies well under way; with an enlarged faculty; with remakably good work and tone in spite of no 
chapel, no fine arts quarters, crowded space, and mounting costs. But the challenge is upon us to enlarge the op- 
portunities offered. All domitory space for girls next year has been engaged since February- Laboratories over- 
flow. The hundreds of students studying fine arts have no place of their own. Daily chapel services continue 
in the gymnasium and vespers in the library. 

The Building Campaign 
There are several articles in this Bulletin concerning plans to secure the additional funds needed for our 
four-fold building program — the Chapel, the Fine Arts Center, a new Women's Dormitory, and an additional 
Science Building. Each of these four projects is of major importance. A Maryville alumnus and his wife have 
provided funds for the Fine Arts Center, as reported in a special article. A substantial beginning has been 
made toward the amount needed for the dormitory by individuals and organizations of the Daughters of the Amer- 
ican Revolution. Miss Clemmie J. Henry is leading in the presentation of this cause to the DAR and other 
friends. Other interested persons will be asked to provide the science building. 

The Chapel 

The funds in addition to insurance and gifts now in hand necessary for rebuilding the Chapel will be 
sought among alumni everywhere and among the people of Maryville, Blount County, and Knoxville. This will 
constitute the largest and most urgent appeal ever made to our alumni. May I urge upon every one the full- 
est possible participation in giving and enlisting others to give. The new chapel will be named for Dr. Samuel 
Tyndale Wilson, the fifth president, who obtained the funds for and managed the building of the Elizabeth 
R. Voorhees Chapel. I have reported details in a separate article. 

Alumni Clubs 
We at the College count it good progress that there is strong interest among alumni throughout the coun- 
try in forming Maryville College Clubs. They can be effective means of fellowship and service. Maryville has 
not done as much in this direction as have most strotv.: colleges. In this movement are new possibilities for 
Maryville College alumni to do things together. 

Hearty good wishes to all of you.

Chapel Campaign Plans 

Alumni and Local Friends 
Pledge Their Support 

The Directors' Committee on Administration on April 6 made some 
very important decisions in connection with the rebuilding of the Mary- 
ville College chapel. 

The first decision, one of great interest to alumni, is that the new 
chapel will be named for Dr. Samuel Tyndale Wilson, president of the 
College from 1901 to 1930 and connected with the institution for 65 years 
as student, professor, dean, president and president emeritus. 

A second decision was that funds, in addition to those received from 
insurance on the old chapel and gifts already made, will be sought from 
the people of Maryville, Blount County, and Knoxville, and from Mary- 
ville College alumni. Alumni in the local communities will take part in the 
campaign as part of the communities rather than as part of the alumni 
association. It is estimated that to build a modern fire-proof chapel to seat 
twelve hundred and to provide facilities for drama fully equipped will 
require $300,000 in addition to the money in hand. 

The third important decision made on April 6 was that intensive cam- 
paigns for funds will be conducted in Maryville and Blount County 
during September and October of this year and in Knoxville during 
November. Committees to plan these campaigns are now being formed. 

The fourth decision was that the Chairman of the Board of Directors, 
the President of the College, and the President and Executive Secretary 
of the Alumni Association were authorized to appoint a national alumni 
campaign committee, subject to approval of the Executive Committee of 
the Alumni Association. This Committee is now being formed and will 
be announced as quickly as possible. 


New Chapel To Be Named 
In Memory of Dr. Wilson, 
Beloved College President 

The Directors of the College have made a very im- 
portant decision about the new chapel. The decision 
is this: the name will be The Samuel Tyndale Wilson 
C Impel. 

This will bring great satisfaction to all alumni who 
knew Dr. Wilson during his sixty-five years of con- 
no. turn with the College as student, professor, dean, 
president, and president emeritus. And to younger 
alumni also, who have not had the privilege of know- 
ing him, it will seem a most appropriate decision, for 
no one, unless it be the founder himself, has had so 
much to do with the history and development of Mary- 
ville College as did Dr. Wilson. And nothing was 
quite so important to him as was the religious work 
of the College that centered and will continue to 
center in the chapel. 

Some history and explanation are necesary, however, 
to make clear the basis for the change in the name. 

In 1905 Mr. Ralph Voorhees and his wife Elisabeth 
R. Voorhees, of New Jersey, gave Maryville College 
$100,000 on the annuity plan. Of this $15,000 was 
set aside with their permission for a chapel. Later 
Mrs. Voorhees added $10,000 and other friends added 
$9,000. It is almost unbelievable, but true, that the 
Elisabeth R. Voorhees Chapel was built in 1906 for 

The building rendered an invaluable service for forty- 
one years and then came the tragic fire that destroyed 
it on March 26, 1947. The College had hoped that it 
would continue to serve indefinitely. Distant plans 
had been in mind, however, to build a larger and some- 
what more "churchly" companion chapel and name it 
for Dr. Wilson, using the Elisabeth R. Voorhees 
Chapel for the more general purposes of an auditorium. 
After the fire that possibility seemed distant indeed 
in view of the amount of money required under modern 
conditions for large fire-proof buildings. 

In view of the relatively small proportion of the 
Voorhees money invested in the old chapel (the other 
$85,000 is in the endowment), in view of the long 
period through which the memorial feature was con- 
tinued, and in view of the fact that there was no re- 
quirement or commitment in the matter, the officers of 
the College and the Voorhees heirs talked over the 
appropriateness of naming the new chapel for Dr. 

There was hearty and unanimous agreement by all 
concerned. The Voorhees family have graciously en- 
tered into the plan to name the new chapel The 
Samuel Tyndale Wilson Chapel and to place in it a 
marker giving the history of Elizabeth lv Voorhees 
Chapel and setting up a permanent memorial as part 
of the new chapel. Thus, it is believed, there will be 
accomplished fittingly and effectivelj in one new and 
enlarged chapel building the memorials formerly con- 
templated for two buildings.

The constitution of Alpha Gamma Sigma, local 
scholarship honor society, permits the election of ten 
per cent of the number of persons graduatim; with a 
liberal arts degree in each class provided there are that 
many eligibles. The prospect is that there will be L08 
such graduates in the class of 1948; accordingly eleven 
have been elected from a larger list of eligibles. 

The scholarship requirement is a point-hour ratio of 
6.5 or above. 

Two were elected from the group of December grad- 
uates: Harold M. Russell, now in Princeton Seminary, 
and Thomas Hoist, now in McCormick Seminary. 

Nine others have been elected since the beginning 
ot the current -emestcr: Esther Cornelius, of Pitts- 
burgh, Penna.; Margaret Howell, of Maryville: Scott 
McClure. of Lebanon, Ohio; Carl Murray, ot' Maryville; 
Loretta Nunn, of Mt. Vernon, Missouri; Mildred Orr, 
of Maryville; Anne Sakaizawa, oi Barrington, Illinois; 
Dorothy Vawter, of Maryville; .\nd Thomas Wheeler 
ot IVekskill, New York.

Donors of Fine Arts Center 

The gift of a Fine Arts Center, to replace and ex- 
tend the fine arts facilities which were lost in the 
chapel fire, was announced last spring. The two 
donors asked that for the time being they be permitted 
to remain anonymous. 

At the Founders Day exercises last October the first 
public announcement of their identity was made and 
released to the press. Now it is appropriate that the 
first Maryville College publication to carry their names 
as the donors should be an alumni publication because 
one of the donors is an alumnus. 

They are Mr. and Mrs. Glen A. Lloyd, of Chicago. 
The Fine Arts Center is to be a memorial to Ann 
Baldwin Lloyd, their daughter who died suddenly, 
while still less than three months of age, on March 27, 
1947, the day after the chapel burned. 

Glen A. Lloyd, a brother of President Ralph W. 
Lloyd of the College, is an attorney with offices at 135 
South LaSalle Street, Chicago. He is a graduate of 
Maryville in the Class of 1918 and of the Law School 
of the University of Chicago. His wife, Marion Mus- 
ser Lloyd, is a graduate of Vassar College but is much 
interested in the work Maryville College is doing. 

Detailed plans of the Fine Arts Center are not yet 
completed because decision as to the date to begin 
building is awaiting more stable construction conditions. 
But it is to provide facilities for the teaching of music 
and art, and will be modern in design and function. 
The estimated cost is $300,000, The Fine Arts Center 
and the new chapel will be separate units, although the 
ground floor of the chapel will contain quarters for 
drama and perhaps for large musical group rehearsals. 

In providing the funds required for this Fine Arts 
Center, Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd become the donors of 
the largest single gift ever received by Maryville 
College. It is a gift of love which will increase the 
quality and the scope of the College's service and will 
be a beautiful and permanently useful memorial. 


Note: Only those reported marriages of May 1947 and 
later are being listed in this column. 

Alumni Organize Chapters 

Throughout the Country 

Before World War II considerable progress had 
been made in organising Maryville College clubs in 
different parts of the United States. The oldest con' 
tinuing organisation is the Atlantic Highlanders in the 
Philadelphia, New York and Washington area. Others 
came into being in Los Angeles, Chicago, St. Louis, 
Cincinnati, Chattanooga, and elsewhere. Like other 
organisations of this kind, most of the Maryville College 
clubs ceased to be active during the war. The Atlantic 
Highlanders was the only one which continued to 

Recently the Executive Committee of the Alumni 
Association voted to encourage the developing of Mary- 
ville College clubs wherever practicable. These can 
be for Maryville, as similar clubs are for many American 
colleges, a means of fellowship for Maryville College 
graduates and former students in the various areas, 
and a means for advancing the interests of the College 
throughout the United States. 

At the present time alumni in a number of Southern 
cities are planning organisational meetings in connection 
with a tour by the College Choir, April 20 to 23. 
Meetings are scheduled for Chattanooga, Birmingham, 
Montgomery, and Atlanta. The Atlantic Highlanders 
met in Philadelphia April 16, and plans are afoot to 
form other organisations also in the East. Western 
Pennsylvania alumni are meeting in Pittsburgh, April 
20. Chicago alumni are planning a meeting some- 
time in May and plans are also being made in Cin- 
cinnati, Louisville, Cleveland, Detroit, and Hickory, 
N. C. 

There will be a Maryville College breakfast in con- 
nection with the Presbyterian General Assembly in 
Seattle on May 29, and present plans call for President 
Lloyd to be in San Francisco and Los Angeles for 
alumni meetings following General Assembly.

1948 A Cappella Choir 

Choir Makes Extended Spring Tour 

The College A Cappella Choir is making a tour of 
southern cities April 20-24, appearing in Chattanooga, 
Birmingham, Montgomery, and Atlanta in evening 
concerts. Radio programs have been arranged in three 
of the cities as well as some high school appearances. 

Two 33-passenger buses will be used to transport 
the group of approximately 65 persons. The Choir 
will carry with them their vestments in specially con- 
structed cabinets and folding "risers" to be used for 
proper arrangement of the group while singing. Dean 
McClelland, Mr. and Mrs. Ted Pratt and Mrs. Harter 
are accompanying the Choir on its trip. 

The local itinerary this spring includes appearances 
at the Second Presbyterian, Graystone and Second 
Methodist Churches of Knoxville, at Knoxville College, 
at Oak Ridge and at Loudon. 

The Choir is directed by Mr. Harry H. Harter, 
Assistant Professor of Music in the Division of Fine 
Arts of the College. The performance of the Choir 
continues the splendid record of previous years. Not 
only does it contribute greatly to the spirit and effec- 
tiveness of the campus program, but judging from 
the enthusiastic reports received, it represents the 
College as a worthy emissary of culture and goodwill 
in its off-campus appearances. 

The Latest Word . . . 

From latest reports, the choir trip was a noted suc- 
cess. The choir's program of sacred choral music was 
presented to more than 2000 listeners, not including 
three radio audiences. As a result, it is felt that Mary- 
ville College has many new friends. 

Alumni clubs were organised in Chattanooga, Birm- 
ingham, and Atlanta, officers were elected, and future 
plans were discussed. At the same time Alumni were 
brought up-to-date on the latest campus events, and 
many acquaintances were renewed. Eight hundred 
miles were well-covered and the choir and representa- 
tives returned tired but happy. 



Note: In this edition of the Alumni Bulletin, it is 
impossible to print all of the births reported in the 
Alumni questionnaires. Therefore, only those births 
later than April 1947 are being announced here.

Record Crowd Turns Out For 
Adantic Highlander Meeting 
In Philadelphia on April 16 

The Atlantic Highlanders held their annual dinner 
and meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on Friday 
evening, April 16. This is the oldest and largest of the 
Maryville College Clubs. 

There was a record-breaking attendance of 1 30. 
While a majority were from the general Philadelphia 
area, a considerable number came from as far north as 
New York City and as far south as Washington and 
one from as far west as Harrisburg. 

The oldest graduates present were Judge Samuel 
Ward Boardman, Jr., '94, and Roger Sherman Board- 
man, '96, sons of the fourth president of the College, 
and Mrs. Mary Carnahan Hill, '99. 

President and Mrs. Lloyd were present. President 
Lloyd spoke concerning the plans for development 
of alumni clubs, the year's campus events, and the 
building campaign. 

William S. Fahnestock, '38, of Lewistown, Pa., 
retiring president, presided. There was a full discussion 
of proposals that because of the constantly increasing 
number of alumni (now approximately 725 graduates 
and former students), in the area for which the Atlan- 
tic Highlanders has so far been the only Maryville 
College Club, there be organized clubs in various im- 
portant centers. The following resolution was adopted: 
"That the Atlantic Highlanders proceed to elect of' 
ficers for the coming year, and encourage the 
formation of Maryville College Clubs in the vari- 
ous centers of the area." 
The following officers were elected for the ensuing 

President — Duncan J. Crowley, '36, Penns Grove, 

New Jersey 
Vice President— John B. Taggart, '30, Ambler, 

Secretary-Treasurer (reelected) — Dorothy Leaf 
Gallant (Mrs. Wayne E.), '37, 6 Court

The Neiu Look In Memorial 

One of the best advances made this year in the 
physical equipment of the College was the complete 
refurnishing of Memorial Hall just after the Christmas 

Through the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Robert J. 
Maclellan, Mrs. B. G. Brown, and Mrs. Walter Hoyle, 
all of Chattanooga, new beds, dressers, and desks were 
purchased for all rooms in Memorial. 

When the fifty eight girls who live in the building 
had arrived after the holidays and were on hand to 
shift their possessions from old to new dresser drawers, 
the old funiture was moved out and the new furniture 
was moved m. The new is of a modern light finish 
birch and has been pronounced both practical and 
handsome. Much of the old furniture had been in 
the building for decades, some of it being home made. 
An "open house" on the evening oi February 28 drew 
several hundred interested visitors.

Maryville Takes Lead In 

Improved Curriculum 

The new program in Special Studios got under w;iy 
with the opening of the second semester in January of 
this year. One hundred and twenty-three juniors 
arc now engaged in this program of work. 

Each special-studies student has a faculty super- 
visor from the faculty in his major field. He meets 
with this supervisor and together they work out a 
choice of subject and develop a plan and program of 
study. Ordinarily they confer at least once a week 
and the supervisor is especially concerned to see that 
Steady progress is made and a close adherence to plan 
is maintained. 

This program is carried for two semesters, the great 
majority of the students finishing their work at the 
end of their first senior semester. The visible prod- 
uct of the work will be a thesis or written report. 
These reports will all have temporary place in the 
Library and the ones having superior quality and 
utility will be kept there permanently. 

This special-studies program is the heart of the New 
Maryville Curriculum. It is thought of as having 
special value as a means of developing individual 
initiative in intellectual pursuits, as an occasion for close 
working association of faculty members and students, and 
as a practical training for all in the processes of scholarly 
method. In each student's program this is treated as a 
full course and he receives course credit for it. The 
faculty members who supervise this work also count 
this work as part of their teaching load at the rate of 
eight special-studies students as the equivalent of one 

Essentially this new phase is an extension of honors 
work that was inaugurated at Maryville in 1932. It fol- 
lows similar programs that have been set up at Prince- 
ton University and other well-founded universities. 
Maryville College is without a doubt a leader among 
southern colleges in the development of improved

Former College Teacher Dies 

Miss Almira Elizabeth 
Jewell died at the home of 
her sister Mrs. Frank R. 
Bradford (Ruth Jewell) at 
Benton, Tennessee, March 
7, 194S. 

Miss Jewell had been a 
teai her in Maryville Col- 
lege for thirty-four years, 
from 1911 until her retire- 
ment because of failing 
health in 1945. For thir- 
teen of those years she 
taught Latin, English, and 
mathematics in the Preparatory Department. Then 
for twenty-one years she taught history in the College. 

She received the B.A. degree from Maryville College 
in 1908 and the M.A. degree from the University of 
Virginia in 1930. She studied also at the University 
of Tennessee, Peabody College for Teachers, Duke 
University, and Johns Hopkins University. 

Several members of her immediate and related fam- 
ilies have been students or teachers at Maryville. Her 
cousin, Miss Almira C. Bassett, is at present Assistant 
Professor of Latin. 

Miss Jewell will be remembered by eight student 
generations for her clear Christian faith, her emphasis 
upon true character, her friendly spirit, her love for 
teaching, and her loyalty to the College and its ideals. 

February Meetings Without A Chapel 

In one respect the February Meetings of 1948 were 
different from any of their predecessors: they were 
different in setting. The Chapel burned six weeks after 
the Meetings of 1947. This year the morning services 
were held in Alumni Gymnasium and the evening 
services in New Providence Church. 

But all worked out remarkably well in view of the 
situation. The weather was bad, but the attendance 
and the spirit were good. 

Rev. Dr. Clifford E. Barbour, of Knoxvillc, proved 
to be a most effective preacher, and Rev. Sidney E. 
Stringham, of Jackson, Missouri, once more rendered 
a distinct service as leader of the singing. 

The results were marked in decisions and new depth 
of spiritual life among the nine hundred students who 
are at the College this year. 


Up to the middle of April, only thirty-eight Alumni 
had P.ud their dues for 1948-49, The Alumni year 
ends with the last day of June and most Alumni like to 
send m their $2 from May to July. That means Alumni 
dues .ire just about due . . . 

There should be no need to elaborate on rising costs. 
Suffice it to say that printing co<ts are sky high now 
and represent about one half oi the expenses of this 
OH ice. The work oi the Alumni Association depends 
upon your support. Won't you send your check or 
currency to the Executive Secretary immediately?

Maryville enjoyed quite a successful fall and winter 
in the field of sports. Although this write-up does not 
include life-saving, women's point system, and the 
myriad of other sports events on the College program 
throughout the year, it does give a concise picture of 
the major events on the sports calendar. The sports 
staff of the Echo should be given credit for the follow- 
ing tabulations: 


The Highlander football squad came from behind a 
13-7 defeat in the second game of the '47 season to 
remain undefeated throughout the remainder of the sea- 
son. The big game of the year found the Scots fight- 
ing their way to a thrilling tie with the big, bad Eagles 
from Carson -Newman. In the final game on their 
home field, Coach Honaker's gridders matched drive 
for drive and pass for pass to leave the scoreboard 
Carson-Newman 7, Maryville College 7. 

The single defeat came on the first away game 
on Tennessee Polytech's field at Cookeville. It was 
Coach Honaker's first absence on account of illness 
in his 32 years of coaching. The Scots held the game 
on even terms until after the first half, when a couple 
of Tech passes provided the victory. Maryville's score 
came later on a blocked punt. 

Three undefeated teams — Sewanee, Middle Tennessee 
State, and Carson-Newman— felt the weight of the 
Scot attack. This attack was powered by the crashing 
drives of Hershell Merriman, the quarterbacking of 
King Berrong and big Dave Clark, the speed of tail- 
backs Leon Berrong and Bill Fogarty, and the fleetness 
of wingback Allen Law. 

Up front Maryville had 6 foot 4 inch Bob "Pie" 
Garner, who has received Little Ail-American mention 
at center. Captain Ronald "Cotton" Easter from Lou- 
den and Lloyd" Anderson from Philadelphia held down 
the guard spots. Alan Rock, brother of Les, '43, and 
captain-elect, for 1948, and Fred Kluth, co-captain- 
elect, worked hard as tackles. At the ends, co- 
captain Ken Talbott and Frank Still finished their last 
season as Orange and Garnet performers. Both boys 
were especially good on offense. 

After the 34-0 defeat the Highlanders landed on 
Sewanee — their worst defeat in 35 years — a United 
Press writer dubbed the Scots as "true Tennessee Giant 
Killers." It was then that the Scottie "Giant Killers" 
polished off Middle Tennessee State, the only unde- 
feated, untied eleven in the state at that time. But the 
climax remained for the annual Carson-Newman - Mary- 
ville game, and the Scotties deadlocked the score to 
make it the first tie score in the 22 clashes of the teams 
since 1903. 

Although Maryville was approached about playing a 
post-season game at Knoxville as a benefit game for 
Kerbela Temple Shrine, the game did not become a 
reality because of the late date at which the officials 
attempted to choose the participants. The complete 
schedule follows: 

Maryville 3 3 

Maryville 7 

Maryville 27 

Maryville 31 

Maryville 24 

Maryville 34 

Maryville 13 

Maryville 7 

Maryville 20 

Hiwassee - 

Tenn. Poly. Inst 13 


East Tenn. State 6 

Emory and Henry 7 


Middle Tenn. State 6 

Carson-Newman 7 



Maryville's basketball quint went through a stren- 
uous 22-game season with varied competition and won 
13, lost 9. Among the teams the Scottie cagers played 
were Western Kentucky State's Hilltoppers, who 
walloped Maryville 77-37, the same Hilltoppers who 
climaxed their season in Madison Square Garden as 
semi-finalists in the NCAA tournament in March. 

Captain Ray Lillard of Maryville finished his fourth 
year on the Scot five with a 10.2 average in points- 
per-game. Top scorer of the season was sophomore 
Bobby Boring of Friendsville with an average of 10.7. 
Boring's calm foul shooting provided Maryville with its 
34-32 victory over Carson-Newman in the closest and 
sweetest game of the year. 

Other standouts for Maryville were Hugh Hamil, 
guard from Friendsville; Bob Garner, lanky center; 
Gene Reynolds, speedy foward; and Brick Brahams, six 
foot four one-arm-shot specialist from California. 

A list of the five top opponents for the season would 
probably come in this order: (1) Western Kentucky 
State (2) Lambuth College (with 49-36, 58-54 victories 
over the Scots) (3) Lincoln Memorial University (1st 
game 62-57 for Maryville; 2nd game 79-56 for LMU) 
(4) East Tennessee State (1st game 43-36 for Maryville; 
2nd game 85-82- overtime - for ETS) (5) Carson- 
Newman (1st game 40-36 for C-N; 2nd game 34-32 
for MC). 


Wrestling as usual grabbed a big spotlight in Scottie 
sports this year. The gym was packed every match 
to see Coach "J. D." Davis' "rasslers" floor four teams, 
tie three and lose to three. The season opened before 
Christmas with the University of Chattanooga on De- 
cember 13. Maryville took the Moc grunters 18-11. 
After trimming the Knoxville Y 31-5 at the start of 
the second semester, the Scots tied Georgia Tech in one 
of the hardest-fought matches of the season. Ap- 
palachian State Teachers, Southern Champs last year, 
then took the Highlander matmen for a ride 25-8 on 
February 7. 

The Maryville matmen downed Western North Car- 
olina 29-5 and the "B" team tied Knoxville Y 16-16. 
The University of Chattanooga invaded the Scotties' 
home for the final home match of the season, and took 
home a tie. The Scots then hit the road and fell be- 
fore the highly-touted Auburn Plainsmen 5-26. Little 
Western North Carolina again fell to Scot talent, 24-5; 
but Georgia Tech's Yellow Jackets, angered by their 
earlier defeat, earned revenge by trimming the Scotties 
17-10 in the final dual match of the season. 


Special mention should go to the team for their cf- 
torts in the Southeastern Invitational Tournament held 
in Chattanooga on March 5 and 6. The Scots won 
second place; Auburn earned first. Four Maryville 
grapplers went to the finals: J. A. Cameron, 128 pound 
freshman from Elisabeth, New Jersey: "Tubby" ( a] 
laway, L45 pound sophomore from Maryville; Hersh 
Merriman, 165 pound sophomore who made fame as a 
fullback last season: and Herb Palmer, 175 pound frosh 
from Kcnilworth, New Jersey. Palmer won first place 
in his class and the Other three men won seconds. 

Captain of the team this year was Ken Ross, a senior 
from Long Island who has been wrestling at Maryville 
(off and on) since 1940. Next year's captain, by 
lettermen vote, will be Henry Callaway, Jr. Ten men 
were awarded wrestling letters. 

Spring Sports 

Spring has arrived on "The Hill". From behind the 
swimming pool comes the crack of a well-hit baseball; 
from the tennis courts the soft thud of ball on racket 
and the sound of the fans cheering another love set or 
good placement; on the football field, the usual chatter 
from perspiring gridiron hopefuls polishing off their 
spring training; and from elsewhere comes news of the 
track team at the Milligan Relays. The rest of the cam- 
pus is literally agog with sports, intramural or otherwise. 
Softball, golf, tennis, track, swimming, skating, archery, 
and hiking all have their adherents among the student 
body and faculty. 


Coach Lombe Honaker's nine opened its season on 
the home diamond April 6 against the Tigers from 
Hiwassee College, only to be rained out before a 2-2 
tie could be broken. Later on April 10, the season 
made its official start as the Scots split a double- 
header with Western North Carolina Teachers, 4-6, 
and 5-4. Hiwassee came back to surprise the Scots in 
their next meeting on April 1 3 in Madisonville, the 
final score being 6-2 for the Tigers. 

The schedule follows: 

April 6 Hiwassee (Home) 2-2 and the rains came 

10 Western North Carolina (Home-2) 4-6, 5-4 

13 Hiwassee (Madisonville) 2-6 

16 T P. I. (Home) 7-6 

19 East Tennessee State (Home) 6-2

1948 Grad To Receive 
Fred Hope Fund Backing 

The annual appeal for the Fred Hope Fund was made 
in December and resulted in gifts and pledges totaling 

During the lifetime of Fred Hope the money con- 
tributed each year was allocated for his use in West 
Africa. Two years ago he died, only a few months 
after his retirement. Before he died he consented to 
allow the College to retain his name for a missionary 
fund to be raised as might seem wise, and he joined 
in the idea that the Fund, which had been raised 
originally in his student days for China and then sent 
to him in Africa for nearly forty years, might well be 
rotated among different Presbyterian mission fields, 
beginning again in China. 

Thus the Fred Hope Fund of 1946-1947, totaling 
$1,400, was sent through the Presbyterian (USA) 
Board of Foreign Missions to the School of Gentleness 
(for girls) in Peking, China. It is being used for the 
development of a religious center or court in the school. 
The supervisor of the Presbyterian missionary work in 
that area is the Rev. Wallace C. Merwin, who was a 
student in Maryville College for two years between 
1923 and 1927. 

Recently the Faculty set up a Fred Hope Fund Board, 
composed of the six Officers of Administration of the 
College and the four students who are the Presidents 
of the Y.W.C.A., Y.M.C.A., Student Volunteers, and 
Student Council. This Board is to have general man- 
agement of the Fund. 

The Board has allocated the Fund of this year to 
China again and has approved its use for the support 
of a new missionary to be sent out from the present 
Maryville senior class. It has promised the Presbyterian 
Board of Foreign Missions that $1,500 will be provided 
in each of the next two years to finance this missionary. 

Miss Mary Edna Smith, of Grove City, Pennsylvania, 
a senior, has volunteered to go and has been approved 
by the Presbyterian Board of Foreign Missions, the 
Faculty of the College, and the Fred Hope Fund Board. 
It is expected that she will go out this coming summer 
to teach in one of the Christian schools in China. 

Neil' Recreation Hall To Be 

Ready For Use In Fall 

Work was recently begun on two additional tem- 
porary bindings allotted to Maryvillc College by the 
Federal Works Agency under its Veterans Facilities 
Program. These buildings, one of which will he used 
for music practice rooms, the other for a recreation 
center, will he constructed from government surplus 
materials. They will be built at no cost to the College 
other than that of preparing the sites and bringing 
utilities to the buildings. 

The music building will be 21 by 60 feet in sisc 
and will contain sixteen small practice rooms. It will 
be built as a wing to the present temporary building 
constructed last spring between Anderson Hall and 
the varsity tennis courts. Specifications include sound 
proofing the partitions. Completion of this building 
will relieve the shortage of practice rooms occasioned 
by the loss of the Chapel. 

The recreation building will contain 2400 square 
feet of floor space and will be located across the road 
from the swiming pool, near the football bleachers. 
The building will contain an office, storeroom, refresh- 
ment stand, and two recreation rooms approximately 
22 by 46 feet. It will serve as a center for the student 
social and recreational program. 

Both buildings will be of frame construction on 
concrete-block foundations. They will make a total of 
four buildings received by the College under the Vet- 
erans Facilities Program. The other two, an office 
building and a supplementary gymnasium, were com- 
pleted last spring. Both have proved most useful, 
the office building having been used temporarily for 
music practice rooms. 


What is an Alumnus? 

There is no outright definition of such an "animal" 
in the Maryville College Alumni Association's By-Laws. 
Prevailing customs throughout the country makes 
any graduate and former student who has attended for 
at least one year eligible for membership in his college's 
alumni association. That provision can be found in our 
own By-Laws. 

But do we practice the same? Are graduates and 
former students considered alike? Not exactly, but the 
trend has been in that direction. The Alumni Office 
desires to take a stand on the point and to go on record 
so that all concerned may know what their relationship 
to the Alumni Association is. 

Mailings, including two copies of the Alumni Bulletin 
per year, are sent to all graduates and former students 
for whom the Office has usable addresses. Both grad- 
uates and former students arc eligible for membership 
in chapters of the Alumni Association. Any grad or 
ex-Student may be elected to hold an office in a Mary- 
villc College club. But only graduates may hold of- 
fice in the Alumni Association as a whole. That is 
stated in section two, article five, of the Alumni Associ- 
ation's By-Laws. 

As may be noticed in this issue of the Bulletin, all 
designations oi graduate or former students have been 
purposely omitted. No distinction whatever has been 
made beteween the graduate and the former students 
(formerly listed as Ex, '36, etc.). The Office would 
like your reaction to this practice. Why not drop a 
line tf> the Alumni Office and let us know your ideas 
on the subject. 

How Can Wc Form a Club? 

A club may be registered as a branch of the Associ- 
ation whenever there are ten graduates who are actively 
interested in such an organisation. All students who 
have attended the College at least one year arc en- 
couraged to become members. 

Alumni who desire to organise such a chapter of 
the Alumni Association can write to the Executive 
Secretary for area lists and other organizational mater- 
ial. Secretaries arc urged to submit regular reports of 
elections, membership, and activities to the Alumni 
Office at the College.
