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

TO ALL ALUMNI OF MARYVILLE COLLEGE:
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
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,
DEDICATION OF THE FINE ARTS CENTER
THE 1951 COMMENCEMENT
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.
FINE ARTS FACULTY
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

and Speech; W. Curtis Hughes, Orsan and Voice; Charlotte I!.
Johnson, Art; Thelma Nelson, Piano and Theory; Dorothy H.
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

The Daisy Chain, 1950 Commencement.
DEATH OF MRS. JOHN WALKER
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
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.

Morningside, March 1951
THE PRESIDENT'S HOUSE
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-
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.
SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS FOR HONOR STUDENTS IN
BLOUNT COUNTY HIGH SCHOOLS
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

Ned N. Skolnick recently returned for a brief visit, particular-
ly to express his gratitude to Dr. Will T. Bartlett, '01, who
lives in Maryville. At the age of seven, Mr. Skolnick earned
what he could carrying bags at a New York railroad station. It
was in this way that he met Dr. Bartlett, then a young minister.
"He took me out and bought me shoes and clothes," said Mr.
Skolnick, "and then took me home with him and later sent me
to Maryville College, where I spent a year and a half in the prep
department." He spent some of his time in Maryvillr with Dr.
Bartlett's mcther and was also befriended by the late Miss
Margaret Henry. Mr. Skolnick now lives in Indianapolis, where

year I have been Matron in one of the girls' dormitories at
State Teachers College, Framingham, Massachusetts. I have 110
girls in my large hall, freshmen and sophomores. This work is
most interesting and constantly challenging. I recommend it for
keeping one younger in spirit."

SMALL COLLEGE SURVEY
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
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.
SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS IN THE FINE ARTS
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.
SOCIAL SECURITY EXTENDED TO COLLEGES

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

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.

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-
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.
