Announcement of the Sesquicentennial
Development Program is a significant
event in Maryville College history. In
collaboration with Dr. Joe C. Gamble,
Chairman of the Board, and with other
officers of the College, I prepared and
presented to our faculty and students at
Chapel on February 16 the formal an-
nouncement which now appears in this
issue of the Maryville College Bulletin.
It was released to the public at a press
conference which Dr. Gamble and I held
immediately after the chapel service.
Probably the plans in the College's
history most nearly paralleling the ones
in this present Sesquicentennial Pro-
gram were those connected with the
Centennial Fund during the years pre-
ceding the 100th Anniversary in 1919.
But there is no record of a previous
Maryville College long range plan so
comprehensive as is the one we now
announce. The blueprint we have de-
veloped includes purpose as well as pro-
gram, people as well as plant, and covers
not only the years leading up to our
Sesquicentennial, but also years far be-
Changing conditions may require re-
visions in the blueprint; and the Direc-
tors have power, of course, to alter at
any time their own decisions. Priorities
especially in plant development are sub-
ject to modification either because of
change of priority in need or because

MARYVILLE COLLEGE DIRECTORS ADOPT SIX MILLION
DOLLAR SESQUICENTENNIAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
On Tuesday, February 16, an important announcement was made by Dr. Lloyd at
Chapel. This statement describing the Sesquicentennial Development Program is one of the
most momentous in the history of the College. The complete text is presented herewith for
serious consideration by the Alumni and friends of the College.
A TEN-YEAR PROGRAM
The Directors of Maryville College have adopted a far-reaching Sesquicenten-
nial Development Program, to culminate at the College's 150th Anniversary in 1969.
The program is built around specific essentials in the long range purpose and
plans which the Directors have set before the College as to its nature, facilities,
and work. It includes the raising of funds totaling $6,000,000 for capital and
current uses outlined later in this statement.

This ten-year plan and its goals are based upon studies and recommendations
made by a Long Range Planning Committee, appointed in 1956, composed of direc-
tors, faculty, and officers of the College; and by the President of the College, and
committees and members of the Board. Some elements in the plan have been an-
nounced previously; but this present statement constitutes the first public announce-
ment of the program as a whole.
THE 150TH ANNIVERSARY
Maryville College was founded by the Synod of Tennessee of the Presbyterian
(now the United Presbyterian) Church in the USA, through a resolution adopted
(Continued on next page)

of the special interest of benefactors
of the College. But we, as officers and
Directors of the College, have drafted
what we believe to be the best design
possible in light of the facts of today
and the known prospects of the future.
As I write this, two important proj-
ects lie immediately before us. The first
is the Maryville College Day scheduled
for March 8, 1960, when an extensive
solicitation for current funds will be
made in the community. This is the
most comprehensive and extensive ef-
fort for local current support yet made,
and we hope not only for its success
this year but for its continuance in fu-
ture years. The other immediate proj-
ect is the effort to secure funds for the
much needed new science building and the
rehabilitation of Fayerweather Science
The Sesquicentennial Program has
roots in all of the past — not merely the
period since 1956 when our Long Range
Planning Committee began its work; not
merely since it became evident college
populations would, like general popula-
tions, "explode" in the 1960s and 1970s;
not merely since World War II which
required many revisions of plans; not
merely since 1930 when the sixth presi-
dency began (there have been only six
presidents in the College's history of 140
years); but back to the Centennial and
to the Semi-Centennial and to the Found-
ing itself. As now announced it is based
on facts of the long past and the ex-
pectations of the far future. But even
more, it is rooted in the conviction that
God has a continuing and enlarging es-
sential service for Maryville College to
render to the world.

Published in May, June, August, October,
November, December, February, March, and
April by Maryville College. Entered May 24,
1904, at Maryville, Tennessee, as second class
matter. Acceptance for mailing at special
rate of postage provided for in Section 1103,
Act of October 3, 1917, authorized February
on October 19, 1819. The 50th Anniversary in 1869, three years after the College
re-opened following the Civil War, was marked by laying the foundation of Anderson
Hall, the first building on the present campus, and by filling the office of Presi-
dent which had been vacant since the outbreak of war in 1861. The 100th Anniver-
sary in 1919 was preceded by the raising of the Centennial Fund of more than a
half million dollars, a sum equivalent then to more than twice that now. The
125th Anniversary in 1944 during World War II was observed in a special convoca-
tion, but due to the War the celebration had to be very limited. The 140th Anni-
versary, October 19, 1959, was observed in a significant way by the important action
of the Directors, five days later, in adopting the Sesquicentennial goals now an-
nounced for the 150th Anniversary in 1969.
Maryville College has a long and honorable history, being among the fifty
oldest of the 2,011 colleges and universities in the United States. It now provides
courses in twenty-five fields of the liberal arts and sciences; has a Christian faculty
of high academic training and a student body from more than forty states and
foreign countries; possesses a campus of 375 acres on which there are some twenty
buildings; and is accredited by the official, national, regional, and state accrediting
bodies. But the future in which the church-related Christian college has an essential
role to play presents a challenge to strengthen and expand our program and facili-
ties for service which makes necessary this Sesquicentennial Development Program.
ESSENTIALS IN LONG RANGE PURPOSE
Basic to all major plans for the future is a clear concept of the long range
purpose the College aims to achieve. Therefore, the Directors have adopted in
substance, as a policy blueprint for the future, a list of essentials in Maryville's
long range purpose. These call for the continuance and further development of
Maryville College as:
A private (non-tax-supported), coeducational, four-year college of liberal arts
and sciences, conferring the bachelor's degree, with due regard to the possibilities
of vocational preparation within the framework of its basic curriculum;
An accredited college academically, not only meeting but surpassing the mini-
mum standards of the accrediting bodies; with a faculty superior in training, ability,
and Christian character; with admission policies which give quality priority over
quantity and include the continued strengthening of entrance requirements;
A Christian college in its announced purpose, character, program, and results;
a college related, as it has been since its founding in 1819, to the (United) Presby-
terian Church in the USA; a college in which qualified persons may be accepted
as students, faculty, and directors without discrimination because of race or color;
A college of limited size, but with a schedule of increases from the present
total enrollment of 750 to 900 in five years and 1,000 in ten years, with the expec-
tation that the proportion residing in campus dormitories will continue to average
approximately eighty per cent of the total student body;
A college financially within reach of qualified students of moderate means as
well as those of ample means, with such revisions in details as may be deemed
wise in light of changing conditions and of Maryville's historic policies of reasonable
charges and organized student aid.
The goal of $6,000,000, established by the Directors as part of the Sesquicen-
tennial Development Program, includes three principal objectives. One consists of
the cumulative ten-year total of necessary annual current funds; the second is
additional endowment as a source of current funds; and the third is for buildings
and other physical facilities. These may be described as follows:
1. ADDITIONAL CURRENT OPERATING INCOME, with ten-year objectives
that call for a 100% increase in the College's salary budget, through regular annual
advances, within an 807r over-all increase in the Educational and General Operating
budget. The cumulative total of these current funds over the ten-year period is
estimated at $2y 2 million. Substantial and continuous increase in operating budget
is absolutely essential if the College is to meet the demands and the challenge of
the coming decade. Although the academic program is now highly accredited, its
quality must continue to be improved and its scope expanded; College salaries must
be raised as rapidly as possible to levels comparable to those of other spheres of
service, and then advanced as national standards advance; instruction, library
service, and residence facilities must be made available for increasing numbers of
students; and if the past trends are indications of the future, costs in general will
increase rather than decrease. All of this represents service to people, which is
the primary purpose of all assets and efforts of a college like Maryville.
These necessary current funds are to be realized from three sources: (1) earn-
ings of additional endowments as provided in the second financial objective described
later in this statement; (2) additional student fees, through increased enrollment
and/or increased charges; and (3) additional gifts for current use. The proportion
required from current gifts will depend to a considerable degree on the amount
of additional income realized from new endowment and student fees. However, the
present advance estimate is that in each of the next ten years it will be necessary
to obtain in current gifts $20,000 more than had been received in the preceding year.
II. ADDITIONAL ENDOWMENT— $1,500,000. A college's endowment funds, soundly
invested, constitute a primary assured source of income. The Directors have set
a Sesquicentennial goal of $1,500,000 in additional endowment, which, on the basis
of the College's present investment earnings, will add approximately $75,000 a year
to the College's current operating income. This is an absolutely necessary part
of the additional current operative income projected in the first financial objective.
The present endowment is approximately $3,100,000 (market price), and the amount
in the Sesquicentennial goal will bring the total to more than four and one-half
million dollars, a ten-year increase of almost fifty per cent.
III. FOR A TEN-YEAR PLAN OF COLLEGE PLANT DEVELOPMENT—
$2,000,000. The present college campus of 375 acres and the existing buildings and
facilities are carried on the books at a conservative figure of $4,300,000. To meet
the immediate and the long range needs of the future, the Directors, since com-
pletion of the Chapel in 1954, have approved twenty-eight major building and plant
improvement projects, as listed below. Of these, the first seventeen (including
Nos. 1-9 completed before 1960) have been given priority in the ten years leading
up to the 150th Anniversary in 1969.

ministration and classroom building; (27) Anderson Hall first floor remodeled;
(28) Chapel bell tower.
(Estimated total cost of these Other Approved Long Range Projects — $2,000,000.)
Campus Master Plan
The Directors have approved a campus
plan to provide a regulative pattern for
the location of future buildings and de-
velopments listed in Projects Nos. 1-28
above. Top priority has been given to
the construction of a new science build-
ing and the rehabilitation of the present
Fayerweather Science Hall.
THE PAST TEN YEARS
The development record of the decade
from 1949 to 1959 includes: (1) increas-
ing the average instructional salaries
65% plus additional benefits such as So-
cial Security and major medical insurance
for all faculty and staff, and increasing
the total operating budget 357< ; (2)
adding something more than $600,000 to
the Endowment; (3) constructing and
furnishing the Fine Arts Center at a
cost of approximately $450,000, given
by an alumnus and his wife; (4) con-
structing and equipping the Samuel
Tyndale Wilson Chapel and Theater at
a cost of approximately $695,000, all of
which has now been provided except
$217,000; (5) paying off an overdraft of
approximately $95,000 on the heating
plant which had been completed in the
preceding decade; (6) rehabilitating Car-
negie, Memorial, and Pearsons Residence
Halls at a cost of approximately $275,000,
provided by a U. S. Government loan and
gifts; (7) constructing and furnishing
a new women's dormitory at a cost of
approximately $465,000, provided by
gifts and a U. S. Government loan.
Thus the 1950s have constituted a no-
table decade in the College's develop-
ment, and have given direction and
impetus to the yet greater plans for the
1960s which will culminate in the Mary-
ville College Sesquicentennial.
THE NEXT TEN YEARS
We enter on this Sesquicentennial
decade grateful to God and to generous
friends for the progress of the College
to this time, and with expectancy that
yet greater progress and service lie
ahead. We look with confidence to gen-
erous individual friends, philanthropic
foundations, business corporations,
churches, students and their families,
and alumni, who recognize in Maryville
a soundly established and forward look-
ing private, church-related, Christian
college, which is of strategic importance
in this unprecedented era of higher edu-
cation in America.

With the announcement of the Sesqui-
centennial Development Program in this
issue of the Maryville College Bulletin,
the annual Alumni Day observance this
year takes on special significance. In
addition to the normal urge to meet
classmates and reminisce over the good
old days, there is the incentive this year
to hear of the latest happenings on
campus, particularly as they relate to
the Development Program.
As early as February first, the Class
of 1925, the 35-year Class, was busy
sending out letters to class members
urging attendance at the reunion on the
14th of May. James W. King, Dr. Fred
A. Griffitts, and Doris Musick were the
loyal alumni of the 35-year Class who
started the ball rolling.
Col. E. Newman Smith, President of
the 25-year Class, has already been in
touch with Ernie B. Lowe in Maryville
and with the Alumni Office to get plans
under way for a large attendance of the
Class of 1935.
Jim Etheridge, President of the 20-
year Class, has also been in touch with
the Alumni Office in an effort to get
an early start with reunion plans for
Letters have gone out from the
Alumni Office to all Presidents of the
reunion classes, suggesting that if the
Office can be of help in contacting class
members, every effort will be made to
give one hundred per cent cooperation.

ficers of the Five and Ten year classes

Where Lies the Responsibility?
By The Hon. Joe C. Gamble
Chairman, Board of Directors, Maryville College
Elsewhere in this issue is the report of an announcement by the Directors of
the College of perhaps the most important step taken by the College since the turn
of the century. I refer to the announcement made by the President at Chapel on
February 16, 1960, of the Sesquicentennial Celebration of the College to be held
in 1969 and of the program that has and will lead up to it.
A great part of the program deals with financial objectives gained and to be
gained — but not all. It has to do with spirit, with superior teaching, with
academic excellence, and with moral standards. For all of these the College con-
tinues to strive and I wish all Alumni could see as I am able to see, the strong
young faculty men and women who are stepping into the places of those faculty
members whom so many of us knew to be great. I wish also that you could see
the great student body of this year and the spirit that prevails on the campus.
The financial program, the success of which is necessary for the attainment
of the objectives of the College is a continuing one, and as you will notice from
the announcement, is not a program just now starting but is a continuance of
special emphasis which has been in progress since the Fine Arts Center was built
and has continued with the building of the new Chapel and Theatre, the new girls'
dormitory, and the rehabilitation of Carnegie, Memorial and Pearsons. But this
financial program must continue with the next major building objective, the
financing of a new science building. Through all the building program and
probably paramount to it must also be the strengthening of the endowment of the
College and the increasing of current gifts so that the offerings at the College will
be equal or superior to the physical plant.
Where will be the responsibility for this financial program? Well, for its
organization and presentation, the College Administration will have to lead as it
has and will, but leadership is not enough. The Directors are responsible but unlike
many College directorates, they are not wealthy persons but they have moved
toward their responsibility. The local community is responsible and toward accept-
ing responsibility, the first Maryville College Day in the College Community is
being planned for March 8, 1960. The Church is responsible and year by year
our own Church is giving more attention to its responsibility to the various church
related colleges, including Maryville. But most of all, the Alumni are respon-
sible — not only by their own gifts but by the contacts which they may have and
will make for the College with persons or foundations with money. I am sure that
every Alumnus of Maryville has contacts with at least one person or foundation
with money to give to good causes. Let us all make friends for Maryville during
the next ten years.

THE NEW SCIENCE HALL
On page one is the architect's render-
ing of the proposed new science build-
ing which will consist of a basement,
a ground floor designed primarily for
Physics and Earth Sciences, a second
floor designed for Chemistry and Re-
search, and a separate but connected
amphitheatre type lecture hall of 175
seats, available to all departments of
the College. The architect's drawings
on page four give a good idea of the
main features of the structure.
A covered passageway to Fayer-
weather Science Hall will connect the
new building. Fayerweather is scheduled
for extensive remodeling and re-equip-
ping to provide laboratory and other
facilities primarily for Biology, Psychol-
ogy, and Home Economics. Preliminary
estimates of combined costs, as seen in
the Sesquicentennial Development sched-
ule, are in the neighborhood of $575,000.
In view of the importance of the an-
nouncement of the Sesquicentennial De-
velopment Program, it was decided to
delay the printing of the February issue
of the Maryville College Bulletin in or-
der to include the complete statement
made by Dr. Lloyd. An Alumni issue of
the Bulletin was due in March. In view
of the delay of the February issue, it
seemed inadvisable to publish two issues
only two weeks apart. This issue, there-
fore, represents the regular February
Bulletin combined with the March issue.
The latter was scheduled to include
Alumni News which is printed in this
The next Bulletin will be distributed
in April. The next issue containing
Alumni News will be the August issue.
Material should be received in the
Alumni Office by the fifteenth of the
month preceding publication.

CHANGES IN COLLEGE
CALENDAR AND COSTS
The new catalog, announcing courses,
charges, and calendar for the college
year of 1960-1961 is now going to press
and will be delivered in about four or
The calendar for the next academic
year contains an important change in
the opening and closing dates of the two
semesters. The first semester will open
on September 13, 1960, and close on
January 24; the second semester will
open on January 27 and close with Com-
mencement on May 31.
After a considerable experience with
closing the first semester before the
Christmas holidays, this change has
been made in order to equalize the length
of the two semesters. Even though Col-
lege has started very early in the fall
under the former system, there has been
no way to get enough time for a stand-
ard semester before Christmas. The new
plan will give more time in September
to get ready for the opening day of
College and still will keep Commence-
ment earlier than that at most colleges.
Another announcement of the new
Catalog of interest to all students of
next year and to alumni will be some
revision in tuition and the cost of room
and board. Beginning next fall, tuition
will be $240 per semester, and there will
be a slight increase in room and board,
amounting to $5 per semester for room
and $5 per semester for board. The
total costs are still below those in al-
most all first-rank private colleges in
America and very much below those in
a large proportion of colleges, especial-
ly those in the North and the East. Ap-
proximately sixty per cent of all small
liberal arts colleges in the United States
are raising fees for the year 1960-1961.
ON FRED HOPE DAY
More than $2,000 was pledged by stu-
dents and faculty members at the annual
Fred Hope Day program in Chapel on
Miss Emma Curtis, instructor in
physical education, and Phyllis Stine,
Terry Lee Dick, and Nancy Jo Martin,
Maryville College students, participated
in the program as representatives of
the YM-YWCA Committee on Ecumeni-
cal Encounters who will go next sum-
mer to Africa in the unique Operations
Crossroads project for which the Fred
Hope fund is being raised this year.
In the past, the Fred Hope fund has
given Maryville College students the
opportunity to share with other people
all over the world. The project for
1960 is unique in that the students
themselves will visit foreign countries.
With one hundred and fifty students
from thirty other colleges and universi-
ties, the Maryville College representa-
tives will spend a week in June at a
camp in New Hampshire, then fly to
London for another week of briefing, and
finally will spend nearly six weeks in
Africa at work camp sites in the in-
To help finance the project, which
will cost in the neighborhood of $5,000,
the YM-YWCA Committee on Ecumeni-
cal Encounters, with the help of the
proceeds of the annual Barnwarming in
November and a substantial gift on a
matching basis from an anonymous
donor, had realized about $1,600 before
the Fred Hope Day program. The
pledges of $2,000 on that occasion, with
the possibility that still more may be
pledged, make it appear that the goal
may be reached shortly.
Miss Nancy Jo Martin, in discussing
the project before the students, charac-
terized Operation Crossroads as a sym-
bol of "our concern for others. It is
an effort to build a bridge of under-
standing and truth."
"Africa is becoming a vital force in
the world today," said Miss Stine.
"There are two hundred and twenty mil-
lion people in an area four times that
of the United States. And unfortunately,
Islam is making ten converts to every
one that is made for Christianity."
Susan Allen Green Black
Mrs. Louis A. Black, who before her marriage in 1946 was Miss Susan Allen
Green, died at the age of 79 in a nursing home near Maryville on January 23, 1960.
The funeral service was held January 24 in the Music Hall of the Fine Arts
Center, on the campus, by President Ralph W. Lloyd, and Rev. Dr. Barnett S. Eby,
Pastor of New Providence Presbyterian Church, Maryville. Interment was in the
Maryville College Cemetery near the graves of Dr. Horace E. Orr, Miss Mary E.
(Miss "Molly") Caldwell, and former Treasurer Fred L. Prof fit.
"Miss Green" was known and esteemed by eleven generations of Maryville
College students. A native of Massachusetts, a graduate of Smith College, holding
the Master's degree from the University of Chicago, she was Professor of Biology
at Maryville College from 1906 until her retirement in 1950.
Soon after retirement she suffered a stroke which made her an invalid for the
remaining ten years of her life. She is survived by her husband, Mr. Louis A. Black,
who was Director of Maintenance at the College from 1931 until 1953.
Her service of 44 years as a teacher in Maryville College is notable both for its
quality and for its length. Only three persons in the College's history of 140 years
have served longer: Mr. Ernest C. Brown ("Brownie") still college Engineer, has
now completed 49 years on the staff; Dr. Samuel Tyndale Wilson, who retired in
1930 and died in 1944, was a Professor for 17 years and President for 29 years, a
total of 46 years; Professor E. R. Walker, who retired five years ago and is living
in Maryville, also served 46 years.
In 1930 Maryville College conferred upon her the honorary degree of Doctor
of Humane Letters (L.H.D.), the first honorary doctor's degree ever given by
Maryville to a woman.
When the College adopted the present divisional curriculum organization plan,
Mrs. Black (then Miss Green) was appointed Chairman of the Division of Science
and held that position until her retirement.
A prize fund to be known as the Susan Allen Green Scholarship Prize Fund
was set up by Mrs. Black in 1943. The income from this fund is to be awarded
annually to the most outstanding and promising member of the junior class majoring
in biology. The award will be made for the first time in May, 1960.
Since her death various persons have sent memorial gifts to the Maryville
College Chapel Organ Fund in the hope that others of her many former students
and friends will do likewise. Mr. Black and the officers of the College are deeply
grateful, for this is a real and continuing need.
HONORS DR. WILLIAM
WADE HAGGARD, '17
A tradition at Western Washington
College in Bellingham, Washington, that
no building on the campus is named for
an individual, was broken last fall when
the trustees of the college voted to name
a new $2,500,000 science building for
Dr. William Wade Haggard, '17, who
retired last year after serving as Presi-
dent of Western Washington for a period
of twenty years.
Dr. Haggard, who was born in Mary-
ville, was a member of the Class of
1917. He showed promise while on the
Maryville College campus of the ability
which was to make him a nationally
known figure in the field of higher edu-
cation. In fact, a prophetic understate-
ment appears in the 1917 year-book as
follows: "We expect to hear of his being-
dean of a Christian college or a similar
institution some day." He was secre-
tary of the junior class, secretary of
Alpha Sigma, then president, president
of the Wilson Club in his senior year,
president of the Carnegie Hall Students'
Council in his senior year, president of
the College Debating Council, and an
assistant in psychology in 1916-17.
After graduation, Dr Haggard taught
in the secondary schools of Michigan
and Illinois for a number of years. In
1927, he received his A.M. at the Uni-
versity of Michigan. In 1928, he be-
came superintendent of schools in Joliet,
Illinois. He achieved national recog-
nition and in 1931, was elected vice
president of the National Association
of High School Principals. In the fol-
lowing year, he became President of
the Association. In 1937, he received
his Ph.D at the University of Chicago,
and in 1939, became President of West-
ern Washington College.
Board Chairman Joseph Pemberton of
Western Washington noted at the dedi-
cation ceremonies last fall that when
Dr. Haggard first came to Bellingham,
the college was a "rather obscure
school." Under his direction, it became
a leading educational institution. The en-
rollment at Western, primarily a teach-
ers' college, is more than 2,000 students,
according to the 1958-59 U. S. Directory
of Higher Education.
The dedication of the W. W. Haggard
Hall of Science came as a complete sur-
prise to Dr. Haggard. Correspondence
may be addressed to him at 519 Oak
St., Bellingham, Washington.
The 1960 February Meetings
The Rev. Dr. Raymond V. Kearns, Jr., pastor of the Broad Street Presbyterian
Church in Columbus, Ohio, was the leader of the February Meetings for 1960, held
daily from February 3 through February 11. This was the 84th year of the Meet-
ings, which rank among the oldest spiritual emphasis programs in American
Speaking on the general theme Your Faith and Your Life, Dr. Kearns chal-
lenged his listeners with a series of penetrating, yet simple and straightforward,
analyses of the questions which daily perplex the professing Christian.
"How can we face the future with confidence? How can we comprehend God?
Where is God? Why do we pray? Who is the unpurchasable man?" These were
some of the basic questions which Dr. Kearns posed and discussed with deliber-
ation and simplicity. One of the most outstanding pastors and ministers to college
students of the United Presbyterian Church in the USA, Dr. Kearns was eminently
qualified by training and experience to make an impressive contribution to the his-
toric Meetings, and students and faculty were in complete agreement that his mission
was truly outstanding. In addition to serving pastorates in Washington and Kan-
sas, Dr. Kearns had been Director of the Westminster Foundation at the University
The I960 February Meeting Team: Mr. Donald R. Mathis, Dr. Raymond V. Kearns, Jr., and Dr.
Henry (Barrie) Barraclough.
of Nebraska, had served as Director of the Department of Adult Work of the
Board of Christian Education, and since 1953, has served as pastor of Broad Street
Presbyterian Church in Columbus. He is a member of the Board of Trustees of
the College of Wooster, is a vice president of the Commission of Ecumenical Mission
and Relations of the United Presbyterian Church in the USA, and serves in many
other significant positions.
Assisting in the Meetings were Mr. Donald R. Mathis, minister of music at the
First Presbyterian Church of St. Petersburg, Florida, as song leader, and Dr. Henry
(Barrie) Barraclough, assistant stated clerk of the United Presbyterian Church
in the USA, who served as piano accompanist for the ninth year.
In addition to preaching twice daily, Dr. Kearns conducted individual confer-
ences with a large number of students, held several group discussions after the
evening services, and met with students in the dormitories for further counsel.
Mr. Mathis, in his first visit to Maryville as song leader, did a magnificent
job of interpreting many of the hymns, giving interesting background and historical
data on them, and providing inspiring leadership in the actual singing. Dr. Barra-
clough, the incomparable accompanist who has endeared himself to Maryville students
for many years in previous visits, provided a vigorous musical background, with
excellent assistance by Mr. Robert Triplett, of the music faculty, at the Holtkamp
Basketball Team Winning Thrillers
The Maryville College basketball team in its first year under Coach Boydson H.
Baird has enjoyed an excellent season, winning eleven and losing seven as the
Bulletin goes to press. Four games in five nights at the very close of the season
will tell the final story, but regardless of the outcome, the Highlanders have done
a magnificent job.
Starting slowly, they lost to Milligan then reversed things with a victory the
following week. After dropping a game to Sewanee, Maryville rolled to successive
triumphs over undefeated Tennessee Wesleyan, Tusculum, Emory and Henry, King
College — twice in three nights, Hiwassee, Sewanee, and a spine-tingler with Ten-
nessee Wesleyan, 62-57. Tusculum threw a monkey-wrench in the machinery with
a 79-70 victory at Tusculum after the Scots had put eight successive victories
Then came a spell of the flu, with two cancellations, followed by victory over
Carson-Newman by a 65-56 score. Then came a four-game losing streak, an over-
time loss to Chattanooga, an unexpected beating by Cumberland, a costly loss to
U. T. Frosh in which George Herron suffered a dislocated ankle, and a drubbing by
Carson-Newman, 78-71. The team got back in the groove against Hiwassee, coming
from behind to roar to a 77-69 win.
Maryville has had a tremendous one-
two-three-four punch this year, with
Tom Morris, Bob Carpenter, Bill Owen-
by, and George Herron hitting the cords
in the double figures with consistency.
Morris is averaging 20 points per game,
Carpenter is right behind with a 15
average, followed by Owenby and
Herron. Freshman Fred Porter, a find
at guard and a tremendous floor man,
has hit double figures on occasion also.
It has been a great season, with fine
competitive spirit, good support from
the students, two capacity houses at
basketball-wrestling double-headers, and
plenty of promise for a great year in
Fred Porter, 5' 7" guard, goes high in the
air in the Highlander's second victory over pow-
erful Tennessee Wesleyan.
Tom Morris, Maryville College senior, scored 57 points in the final game of
the 1959-1960 basketball season, setting a new College individual scoring record
and sparking the team to a convincing come-from-behind victory over the University
of Chattanooga by a score of 90-83. Morris finished the season with a total of 497
points and a four-year scoring total of 1,611 points, also a new College scoring
record at Maryville. The team finished the season with a 14-8 record.
Coach John A. (J. D.) Davis' matmen finished third in the Southeastern
Intercollegiate Wrestling championship held at Maryville on February 26-27. De-
fending champion Auburn was first, with the University of Chattanooga second.
Jim Baxter won the 115-pound championship, scoring one of the four pins in the
finals. Stewart Johnson was second in the 147-pound class, while Don White, in
the 167-pound class, Don McFerron, in the 177-pound class, and Art Fairchild,
wrestling in the heavyweight division, all took thirds.
A tense moment in the match between Auburn
WRESTLING TEAM POINTS
Starting with only two or three per-
formers from last year's wrestling team
which finished second in the Southeast-
ern Tournament, Coach John A. (J. D.)
Davis has developed his squad into a
strong unit which will give plenty of
trouble to the opposition in the Tourna-
ment which will be held this year in the
Alumni Gym on Friday and Saturday,
February 26 and 27.
The Highlanders started as usual with
the powerful Knoxville YMCA team
and lost. Two weeks later, they turned
the tables on the Y and came out vic-
torious. Losses followed to the Univer-
sity of Chattanooga, Auburn, Appalach-
ian State, and in a return match with
Chattanooga, a real thriller which the
Mocs won by 14-13. The Highlanders
then ran rough-shod over Birmingham-
Southern and triumphed over Emory
University by a 17-16 score.

three-and-five record, Maryville's hopes
will ride on the smaller men, particu-
larly little Jim Baxter, 123-pound fresh-
man who has won five straight matches
by pinning his opponent, including last
year's champ from Chattanooga, and
Auburn's entry. Other consistent win-
ners have been Charles Crissman, 137-
pound entry; Bill Hartman, 157-pounder,
and Art Fairchild, heavyweight who has
been improving steadily.
