Dear Fellow Alumni of Maryville College: 

Another year has rolled bv in alumni history. Notable since the last Bulletin has 
been the excellent and proud use of the new Fine Arts building on the campus which 
many of you have not had the pleasure of seeing. Dedication of this building will 
take place during Commencement Week. 

A local event was a reception honoring the twentieth anniversary of Dr. and 
Mrs. Ralph Lloyds' outstanding leadership at our College, given by students and 

Also, at a banquet for him several honors were accorded Coach Honaker for a 
record thirty years of athletic leadership. He was presented a new Buick automobile 
and a sizable sum of money (and a vacation trip was suggested) as a reward for the 
excellent tvpe of sportsmanship which he has so consistently fostered. Former 
athletes came from near and far to congratulate and honor him. 

Although it is not yet under construction a new Chapel has been assured for 
Marvville College. It is mv understanding that as soon as architects' plans are ap- 
proved and materials are made available, work will begin on this new and much 
needed edifice in memory of Dr. Samuel T. Wilson. 

Commencement Week this year begins May 10th Alumni Day will be May 12th 
and the dedication of the Fine Arts Center on May 13th. We hope you will plan 
your vacation now to include this opportunity to come back to see what vour Alma 
Mater is now doing toward the continuation of education. Also it is an excellent op- 
portunity for class groups to get together for their reunions, to renew old acquaint- 
ances and think and talk again of the wonderful times we have had together in years 
gone by. 

Paving vour alumni dues will help us to keep up with students, including your- 
self. We feel this Bulletin coming to you each year should bring you satisfaction in 
news of your Alma Mater and of your contemporaries, and that you reallv want to 
continue to keep it coming. Now is the best time to write and mail that check for 
$2.00 to Maryville College Alumni Association along with any pertinent news as to 
vour attainments. 

May I urge you again to make your plans to attend Commencement this year.

ALL ALUMNI. The number of our living graduates is 3527 according to records in the 
Alumni Office. All would receive this bulletin if we knew everyone's address. Actually there 
are about 300 graduates from whose recorded addresses mail has been returned unclaimed; and 
at each mailing of this bulletin to addresses we think to be correct about one hundred notices 
come from the Post Office saying the addressee is no longer there. Therefore, if any one who 
receives this knows of some other graduate or former student who does not receive it, please send 
the correct address to the Alumni Office, and be sure to send- word whenever you move or change 
your name. For I would like to send the greeting which this page contains to ALL alumni, and 
have ALL receive the college news which is in all these pages. 

ENROLMENTS. The question most frequently asked us and most frequently discussed in 
writings about colleges these days is, "How many students are you going to have?'' It is a 
question which I wish some one could answer. All college administrators and commentators make 
predictions, more or less confidently, but no one really knows yet what enrollments will be next 
Fall. All think there will be a decrease; many think now that the decrease will be smaller than 
was predicted three months ago. At this writing Congress has not yet completed legislation con- 
cerning military service, which will be the principal factor affecting college enrollments. There 
appears to be a growing disposition on the part of Congress and Selective Service to extend the 
provisions for remaining in college. My personal expectations are less optimistic than those of 
most of my college president friends. I shall be surprised and of course pleased if next Fall finds in 
liberal arts colleges more than two thirds as many men as are there now. Present conditions, 
with high paying jobs, increased numbers of marriages, and general disturbances of family plans, 
tend to reduce also the number of yhls going to college. 

COLLEGE FINANCES. The prophets of despair who write in secular journals nbout small 
colleges base their predictions of crippling and closing on (a) unlimited tax monies fcr the state 
institutions, (b) reduced student fees, and (c) inflation. They are correct about the causes; I 
hope and believe they are mistaken about the ultimate results. But the results will depend in 
no small measure on the conviction of Americans about the essentiality of the church and private 
college and a new sense of obligation on the part of alumni and others. Maryville is increasing 
overall charges about 15 percent for the Fall Semester, but students cannot and should not 
carrv all the burden. The net total of tuition, room, board, and -books at Maryville College is 
still less than at other colleges of similar rank, but I wish we could escape these periodic increases 
in charges. During my twenty years at Maryville, our budget has doubled because of growth, 
improvements in program and plant, higher salaries, and higher prices. We have added ap- 
proximately three quarters of a million dolhrs to our endowment and yet it has beer, necessary 
to increase charges in about the ratio of budget increase. (Even at that students still get three 
meals a day— good meals— for one dollar!) We have come through Depression and War and 
"Post-War" without debt. We shall make every effort to continue so— but the next few years 
will be rough. Alumni can help by joining our Living Endowment Plan. (If you will, write 
for information.) 

THE NEW BUILDINGS. On another page are announcements about dedication of the 
Fine Arts Center on May 13, preceded by the Fine Arts Festival and Awards. The Chapel Fund 
was wonderfully advanced in January by a gift of $100,000 by an anonymous donor and is near 
the goal of $400,000 only to find building costs going on ahead like a will-o-thc-wisp. But with 
the additional gifts of alumni and other generous friends, we will one day have announcements 
of the beginning of a notable building. 

You arc always welcome on the campus. 

Most cordially yours, 




Although the Fine Arts Center has been in use since last 
September, it has taken all the college year to complete the de- 
tails and secure the furnishings. Even now the Music Hall seats 
have not arrived. It was decided to set the dedication in the 
Commencement season and to inaugurate with it in annual 
Fine Arts Festival and Scholarship Award Competition. 

The formal dedication will take place on Baccalaureate after- 
noon, May 13. But it will be preceded by three days of emphasis 
upon Art, Drama, and Music. A number of distinguished speak- 
ers are to be present. On Alumni Day, Saturday, May 12, there 
will be competitions in Art and Music with scholarship awards 
to the successful contestants. (See description under separate 
heading.) The donors of the building. Mr. and Mrs. Glen Alfred 
Lloyd, will participate in the formal dedication ceremony. 

It is planned to conduct a fine Arts Festival and the Competi- 
tions each spring, perhaps a few weeks earlier than Commence- 

The 1951 Festival will include chapel addresses by notable 
guest speakers on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday mornings, 
May 10, 11, and 12; Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing* 
on the nights o( May II and 15; the competitions all day on the 
12th; addresses on architecture and art at and after the Alumni 
Dinner; and the Dedication itself. The special emphasis of the 
period will be in mind in pLmning the Baccalaureate and the 
Commencement Vesper services. 

As this is written, the following have accepted invitations to 
take part in this program: Price Doyle, President of the National 
Association of Schools of Music; John Walker, Chief Curator of 
the National Art Gallery, Washington; E. William Doty, Dean 
of the College of Fine Arts of the University of Texas; Rev. Dr. 
Paul Calvin Payne, General Secretary of the Presbyterian Board 
of Christian Education, and Malcolm Miller, Knoxville, drama 
and music critic and impresario. 


For many years Maryville College has offered work in the 
line arts. However, until 1936 it was outside the regular degree 
offerings and college credit was not given. Since that time, 
majors leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts have been 
offered in music, drama, and art and the Division has grown 
rapidly. The faculty of this year are listed below. 

Katharine C. Davies, Piano and Music Literature, Chairman 
of the Division. Berniee Cathcart Blair, Voice; Kathleen Craven, 
Drama and Speech; E. Kathcrine Crews, Violin and School 
Music; Malcolm J. Dashiell, Art; Alice Archibald Eaddy, Piano 
and History of Music; Harry H. Harter, Voice and Choir; 
Dorothy D. Home, Music Theory; Mildred W. Hughes, Drama 
and Speech; W. Curtis Hughes, Orsan and Voice; Charlotte I!. 
Johnson, Art; Thelma Nelson, Piano and Theory; Dorothy H. 
Vawter, Piano. 

The graduating class of 1951 will number approximately 172. 
This is the second largest class; the Class of 1950 numbered 
177. It is made up of students completing their work at three 
dates— the end of the Fall Semester (December 1950), the end 
of the Spring Semester (May 1951), and the end of the sum- 
mer of 1951. An unusual number, 25, completed their work in 
December, 1950. Only in December, 1942 have there been more 

Commencement Day is Wednesday, May 16. The Directors of 
the College will hold their Spring Meeting at 8; 30 a.m. that 
morning, and the graduating exercises will be at 10:30 a.m.

Vespers at 7:00 p.m. 

Alumni Day will be Saturday, May 12. The Alumni Dinner 
will be at 7:00 p.m., and will be followed at 9:30 p.m. by an 
illustrated lecture in the Fine Arts Center. Reunion classes will 
get together as they may plan during the day, while students take 
exams and music contestants compete for the scholarship awards 
offered. The twenty-five year class (1926) has been working 
for some time on its reunion plans. 

The annual reception by President and Mrs. Lloyd will be 
held at Morningside, in the College Woods, their present home, 
on Tuesday afternoon, May 15, from 3:00 to 5:00 p. m. 

The Commencement play will be given twice, once on Friday 
evening. May 11, as part of the Fine Arts Festival, and again 
on Tuesday night, May 15. This year it»is Shakespeare's "Much 
Ado About Nothing." 

As described elsewhere, the events of the Fine Arts Festival 
will be on May 10. 11. 12, and 13. There will be chapel pro- 
grams also on Monday and Tuesday, May 14 and 15. 

The Daisy Chain, 1950 Commencement. 


Mrs. John Walker, the beloved builder and occupant since 
1932 of Momingside, in the College Woods, died on December 
14, 1950, and was buried in the College Cemetery beside her 
sister Mrs. William Patton Stevenson. 

At the time of her death Mrs. Walker had attained the re- 
markable age of 98 years, 8 months, and 5 days. She had been 
quite well until five weeks before her death when she fell in 
the house and broke her hip. 

The story of Mrs. Walker's residence on the campus and re- 
lationship to the College is an interesting one. She was a sister 
of Mrs. William Patton Stevenson, wife of our former College 
Pastor who served from 1917 to 1940. In 1932, Mrs. Walker's 
husband, 3 former associate of Andrew Carnegie and other build- 
ers of the steel business, died in Pittsburgh at the age of 87. Mrs. 
Walker, who was then 80, was given permission to build a home 
in our College Woods. She said that she wished to live out her 
"few remaining years" near her sister, who was fifteen years 
younger. It was her intention to spend only part of each year here, 
as she had homes also in Fittsbursri and Canada. However, al-. 
though Mrs. Stevenson died in 1939, she liked the year-round 
climate and the situation here so much that she soon kept this 
as her only home. 

Mrs. Walker built three houses on the campus— the large 
residence in which she lived, a three-car garage with a small 
four-room apartment over it, and a charming five-room brick 
"Guest House" a hundred yards away. These, of course, were 
properties of the College from the beginning since they were 
on the College's grounds; and this fact was emphasized in Declara- 
tions of Trust which gave Mrs. Walker full possession and re- 
sponsibility of them during her lifetime. Her will transfers to the 
College the furnishings. 

Her living at the College turned out to be a happy arrange- 
ment for her and a benediction to the College in ways much 
beyond her monetary gifts even though they were considerable 
and continuous. It will be of interest to know that the first 

gift for rebuilding the Chapel was $1,000 from her. And the 
last check she signed, the day before her fall, was one for $1,000 
to the Chapel Fund (with others between these two). She was 
especially interested in landscaping. It was she who supervised 
the grading of the old red bank and the building of the steps 
below Camegie. She made the corduroy into a road rather than a 
path and erected the gateway on that side of the campus. Her 
secretary and business manager was Miss Nellie P. McCampbell, 
'09, a member of the College's Board of Directors, who rejoiced 
in and encouraged Mrs. Walker's interests in the College and 
its program. 


In the course of a year there are many eventc and many ac- 
tivities on the campus. Among the traditional events are the 
singing of "The Messiah" on a Sunday afternoon before Christ- 
mas (this year 225 sang in the chorus), the Good Friday service 
at chapel, the Easter Sunrise Service (this year it was cold but 
clear and almost five hundred people attended), and of course 
the February Meetings. Another tradition is Barnwarming on 
Thanksgiving evening. The theme for 1950 was "Golden Jubilee" 
and depicted episodes in the life of one family over the half 
century. The king and queen were Andy Clark and Judy Breen. 
The May Day pageant will be based on early English Mav 
Festivals. Election of the queen will take place shortly. "Our 
Town" and "Mr. Pirn Passes By" have been given by the Play- 
house and recently the Experimental Theatre gave two' one-act 
plays on a stage in the center of the Bartlett gym floor as an 
experiment in "theatre-in-the-round." The Artists Series has 
presented the University of Alabama String Quartet, the North 
Texas State College A Cappella Choir, and Wiktor Labunski, 
noted Polish pianist. Dr. Labunski spent two days on the campus, 
lecturing to music classes, conducting a piano clinic, and giving 
a formal concert as one of the Artists Series numbers. Alumni 
will be interested in the fact that the Director of the North 
Texas State Choir was the son of Frank D. McKinley, Prep. 
'95-'98, who came down from his home in Winchester, Kentuckv 
for the concert.

President and Mrs. Lloyd at 
Morningside, March 1951 


On March 1 President and Mrs. Lloyd moved to Morningside, 
in the College Woods, the former home of Mis. John Walker. 
It was Mrs. Walker's wish that Morningside become the presi- 
dential residence. 

The house in which the Lloyds have lived for twenty years 
was also the home of two former presidents: Dr. Boardman for 
ten years and Dr. Wilson for twenty-nine years. It was built 
in 1890 by Mrs. Sylvester Willard of Aubum, New York, as a 
memorial to her husband. The present plans are to use it for 
additional women's residence facilities. 


As an expression of interest in the high school students of this 
area and as an incentive toward scholarly achievement, the College 
has announced that tuition scholarship awards will be given to 
■the first-honor graduate in each high school of Blount County 
and in Greenback High School of Loudon County. The high 
schools are: Alcoa, Everett, Friendsville, Lanier, Maryville, Porter, 
Townsend, Walland, and Greenback. In case the highest rank- 
• ing student in any school does not accept the scholarship, it will 
not be awarded in that school. 

Each scholarship will be for one half of the tuition each year 
for four years, under the conditions stated below. On the basis 
of present tuition charges the scholarship would amount to $120 
per year or a total of $480 over the four years of college. It will 
apply only to attendance at Maryville College and will not be 
transferable to another person. To qualify the student must meet 
these requirements: hold the highest scholarship average in the 
graduating class over all work taken throughout the entire four- 
year high school course; be recommended by the high school 
faculty as a person possessing such qualifications of character, 
personality, aptitude, and purpose as would give promise of 
success in college; meet all college entrance requirements as 
published in the Maryville College catalog including the com- 
pletion of prescribed high school subiects and the furnishing of 
necessary references and certificates. To continue to qualify for 
this award after the freshman year, the student must maintain 
each semester a satisfactory record of scholarship, attitude and 
general progress.

According to the Alumni Office records the next oldest gradu- 
ate is Horace McBath of the Class of 1881. However, he has 
been "lost" since 1943 and it may be that he has died. Leroy S. 
Hanna, '82, is living in St. Petersburg, Florida. The Office has 
heard that Millard Fillmore Sparks, '82. died manv years ago 
but has never been able to verify that fact.

demonstrated it all over the world. In 1944 he gave the Almuni 
Dinner address on the progress of medicine in "One Doctor's 
Life." He had a large private hospital in San Francisco, Sts. 
John Hospital. At the time of his death he was planning a trip

ary, 1951, in Collinsville, Illinois, where she lived with her

Several inquiries have come as to why Maryville College was 
not included in "Good Housekeeping's" annual survey of small 
colleges. Maryville was included in the two previous surveys 
but this year the magazine changed the survey intc what ap- 
pears to be almost an accrediting process and asked each college to 
submit extensive reports and fill out a voluminous questionnaire. 
There is a general belief among college leaders that too many 
individual and departmentalized accrediting agencies are harmful 
and Marvville decided not to send in a report. 


Baseball, tennis, and track are under way although spring is 
late arriving. So far this year wrestling has had the best record. 

The squad closed a good season by winning second nlace in the 
SEAAU tourney at Chattanooga early in March. They had two 
firsts in the tourney; in one the final match was between two 
Maryville men. 

At present the enrolment of men for next year :s uncertain 
but it is hoped that all sports can be continued as usual. The 
football schedule is still not complete as one or two of the 
opponents scheduled have announced they are dropping football, 
at least temporarily. 


The debate squad of thirteen took part in five debates this 
year, including the National Pi Kappa Delta Tournament, at 
Stillwater, Oklahoma. Four of the debaters, with Miss Arda 
Walker, assistant coach of debate, attended the latter and made 
a good record. 

The men, Lewis Evans and Newell Witherspoon (son of Helen 
Newell, '19, and John K. Witherspoon, ex '19), won three out 
of eight debates. The women, Carol Corbett and Carolyn Miller, 
won five out of eight and received a rating of Good. Carolyn 
Miller also won Good in Women's Oratory. This national tourna- 
ment is held every two years and this year 831 debaters from 
150 colleges in 35 States took part. 


Through the generosity of friends of the College, a fund has 
been set up to provide scholarship awards in the fine arts, based 
upon competitions conducted by the Division of Fine Arts. It 
was decided to conduct the competitions this year in piano, voice, 
and art. A bulletin, containing the following general informa- 
tion and detailed instiuctions, has been mailed to high schools 
and teachers throughout this general area. The awards are, in 
piano, $200; in voice, $200; in art, $100. If the winner elects 
to attend Maryville College, the College will add a $100 award, 
making the totals— piano, $300;' voice, $300; art, $200. These 
awards will be made at the close of the competitions on May 
12, 1951, tc three individual competitors, one in piano, 
one in voice, and one in art. These will te determined by 
eminent authorities invited to be judges, whose decision shall 
be final. The judges will have power to decide that there is no 
winner in a particular competition of sufficient merit to receive 
the award. Each award on May 12 will be in the form of a 
certificate for the amount indicated, to be applied toward ex- 
penses at a college or school of music or art approved by Mary- 
ville College. A candidate for competition must be a high school 
senior or graduate who has not attended college or professional 
school and is planning to do so. In music he must perform in 
competition at the College on May 12; in art he must submit a 
portfolio containing six examples of his work. In both cases he 
must submit his high school record and have the endorsement 
of his principal and teacher. 

Have you paid your dues, $2.00, for this year? The 
fiscal year closes May 31 but your money is good any time. 


Mary Wills, Homecoming yueen, 

with her two attendants, Ruth 

Nicholas and Sally Kemp. 


Homecoming Day last fall started off as a beautiful October 
day but just as the baibecue was ending that evening it began to 
rain and it continued throughout the football game. The queen 
Mary Wills, senior from Baltimore, was crowned before the game, 
but by the half it was raining so hard the pageant planned could 
not be held and the band could not play. The pageant, on the 
United Nations and featuring the flags of all the member na- 
tions, was held at the next game and was very effective. Students 
decorated the dormitories in honor of the returning alumni and 
the Pep Committee sponsored a parade in the afternoon which 
included twenty floats made by different campus organizations. 

The annual Founders Day Address at the Founders Day 
service that morning was given by President John A. Mackay of 
Princeton Theological Seminary, noted church leader, who spoke 
on "God's Springtime in Asia." 

Founders Day and Homecoming next fall will be on October 
27. The game will be with Carson-Newman, and we will hope 
for better weather. Plan now to come. 


Church-related and private college employees are among the 
groups to which Federal Social Security coverage was extended 
as of Januarv 1, 1951. Maryville College added it to the Retire- 
ment Annuity Plan which it has had in effect for twelve 
years. Prior to 1951 educational institutions were not eligible for 


At the annual meeting of the Western Section of the World 
Presbyterian Alliance in February, President Lloyd was elected 
Secretary of the Western Section and Acting American Secretary 
of the World Presbyterian Alliance. Sometime ago he was elected 
a member of the Central Committee of the World Council of 
Churches. Duties in connection with these two appointments 
will probably take him to Europe about the middle of the sum- 
mer. The Central Committee of the World Council is to meet 
August 4-11 in Rolle, Switzerland, and the Executive Committee 
of the World Presbyterian Alliance August 13-15 in Basle, 
Switzerland. He will probably meet certain other appointments 

in Great Britain but will return before the end of August. 
Among articles President Lloyd has written in recent months 
were one on "Pastors and Presbyterian Union" in Monday Morn- 
ing, an article "Can the Presbyterians Get Together Again" in 
Presbyterian Life, "Ours is a Cooperative and Uniting Church" 
in the Southern California Presbyterian, and "Our Colleges" in 
the March 31 issue of Presbyterian Life. On the anniversary ot 
the Lloyds' coming to Maryville College in 1930, the faculty

Lloyd, who was then attending the Southern Association of 
Colleges in Richmond. On January 30 faculty and students gave 
a reception in the Lloyds' honor. 

Professor Howell has been appointed Secretary of the Faculty, 
in the place of Dr. Davis, who retired last May. The Howells

his former athletes, in recognition of his thirty years of service 
at Maryville College. They gave a banquet in his honor at 
Chilhowee Inn (Walland), and presented to him a new Buick 
car and a purse for SI, 000. Wide newspaper publicity was given 
to the event and to the fact that Coach Honaker is one of the 
few coaches in the country who has been able to stay so long at 
one college. 

Miss Clemmie Henry, who has been spending the winter at

Maryville is participating again this year in the survey made 
by the Population Reference Bureau to determine how many 
college graduates marry and how many children they have. 
Cards are sent to the graduates of the ten-year and the twenty- 
five-year classes. The answers received are reported to the 
bureau, which tabulates and analyzes them. The results of last 
year's study show that in Maryville's Class of 1925 the women 
had 1.13 children per graduate (national average 1.29), and the 
men had 2.15 per graduate (national average 1.77). Of the 
women, 78% are married (national average 74%) and 75% of 
the marriages are fertile (national average 77%). Of the men, 
95% are married (national average 94%) and 89% of the mar- 
riages are fertile (national average 83%). 

The statistics of the Class of 1940 are, for the women: chil- 
dren per graduate 1.14 (national average 1.09); 80% married 
(national average 74%); 81% marriages fertile (national aver- 
age 80 r y ). For the rnen: children per graduate 1.58 (national 
average 1.29); 97% married (national average 88 f /(); 88% mar- 
riages fertile (national average 79%). 

The Population Reference Bureau has calculated that 2.1 
children per graduate are needed to replace the parents and a 
minimum of 3 children in each family to compensate for the 
unmarried and the infertile. These studies of more than 150,000 
college graduates show that their families are too small to re- 
place them. 

Our sociology department and the Alumni Association feel that 
this Bureau is doing a worthwhile piece of research and ap- 
preciate the cooperation of the graduates who have returned the 
cards sent them. 


The most extensive trip ever taken by a Maryville College 
student group is scheduled for April 13-25. By the time this is 
read the Choir (40 of the 60 members of the full Choir) will 
have made a tour of 1900 miles to the East and North. Faculty 
members accompanying them are: Harry H. Harter, Director and 
Assistant Professor of Music; Miss Frances Massey. Dean of 
Women; and Dr. F. A. Griffitts, Professor of Chemistry and 
Chairman of the Division of Science. 

Appearances are scheduled for Washington, D. C: Philadel- 
phia, Pennsylvania; Salisbury, Baltimore, Aberdeen, Maryland; 
Wilmington, Delaware; Darby, New Brighton, Pittsburgh. Penn- 
sylvania; Columbus, Cincinnati, Ohio.
