President of Maryville College Aliimiii Association Dear Fellow Alumni: Your Ahiinni Bulletin is reaching you after Homecoming this \ear clue to the fact that October 18 was so early in the year that we could not get the Bulletin to you before that time. Homecoming weekend was a very full and satisfying one. Thursday evening man\ Alumni attended the Industrial Appreciation Banquet for Area businessmen and their wives at which Mr. Frank .\Iagee, Presi- dent of the Aluminum Company of America, made the keynote address. Miss Ware, as usual, prepared us a very delightful meal. Friday evening brought something new to the campus in the way of musical entertainment. A compan\- from Broadway presented the musical satire "Candide." It was also the first "standing room only" in the Artist Series history. Saturday, at the Founders Day Ceremonies, Mr. Magee was awarded an LL.D. degree and was wel- comed as a new Alumnus by your president. Mr. Magee was great in his praise of the contribution Mary- ville College has made to the Aluminum Company of America as well as to the nation and the world. This was followed by an Alumni Luncheon attended by fifty-five persons, a soccer game between .Mar\ville and King College, an organ recital, a parade, a swimming and diving exhibition and was climaxed by the annual barbecue at which more than five Inmdred and fifty lunches were served. Ernie (Caldwell, Ernie Lowe and the many others who worked so faitlifully in preparing and serving the meal deserve tiie praise of all of us. Oh yes — there was a football game but tlie Alumni Association takes no responsibilit\ For the score. We .\iumni can contribute much to our Alma Mater and shoidd do so at every opportunity. The best aiKertising the (^olli-ge can get is through the enthusiastic recommendation of an Alunmus. Let us begin now to help send more freshmen to the Hill next fall. The new dormitory will be finished and there will be room for many more students. I hope you presidents of reunion classes won't wait too long to begin making plans for the biggest Commencement ever: the one in Ma\', 1959. Sincerely, HOWARD F. LAMOX. |R. Page Three President Lloyd's Page Ralph W. Lloyd President of Maryville College DEAR FELLOW ALUMNI: 1. A FACULTY RETREAT was a new event in the open- ing week of the college year. For most of two days between seventy-five and a hundred members of the faculty and staff were at Laurel Lake, in the mountains fifteen miles from Maryville. Long range and short range plans were discussed and made. It was adjudged a valuable addition to our pro- gram and probably will be repeated in some form next year. 2. THE FOUNDERS AND HOMECOMING DAY events on October 18, reported in more detail elsewhere in this issue, were both pleasant and significant. The weather was perfect. The Founders Day Convocation emphasized Maryville College in the business world and the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws was conferred upon Frank L. Magee of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, President of Aluminum Company of America ( ALCOA ) . Two days before, there had been held a com- munity "Industry Appreciation Dinner" in our College Dining Hall with 650 present and Mr. Magee as the speaker. On Saturday afternoon we had one of the largest Homecoming crowds of alumni of recent years, and the students' Home- coming parade was above average in its floats and community- college interest. 3. THE DIRECTORS' FALL MEETING on October 17-18 was well attended and there were some important actions, of which probably the most far-reaching had to do with our Development Program. I am writing a brief article about that program for another page. A comprehensive plan and organization have been effected and the Directors have initiated a vigorous long-term effort in which alumni will be asked to take an important part. You will be hearing more about it. 4. LOSSES BY DEATH in our official family during 1958 have been heavy. Two of these have been in the Board of Directors. Judge Samuel O. Houston, an alumnus of the Class of 1898, a Director since 1909 and Chairman of the Board from 1932 to 1953, died on August 29. Rev. Dr. Stuart Nye Hutchison of Pittsburgh, a Director since 1943, died April 5. Bonnie Hudson Brown, a member of our Biology faculty since 1929, fell ill of a brain tumor in August and died September 12. We are grateful for their services, saddened by their going, and under necessity of increasing our commitment and endeavors to compensate in some measure for our loss of them. 5. THREE NEW DIRECTORS were elected by the Synod of Mid-South in June: R. Arnold Kramer, Maryville College '40, Knoxville Attorney; Rev. Paul Floyd Jones, Pastor of Graystone Presbyterian Church, Knoxville; and Rev. Robert Barr Stewart, Pastor of Second Presbyterian Church, Chatta- nooga. All three were present at the Fall Meeting. In June also the Synod elected as Honorary Directors three Directors in the Class of 1958 whose terms had expired and who had reached the retirement age of seventy specified in the By- Laws: James L. Getaz, New York; Albert D. Huddleston, Orniond Beach, Florida; and Roy E. Vale, Indianapolis. Honor- ary Directors are eligible to serve in all ways that Directors serve except that they are not eligible to vote or hold office in the Board. To these we are grateful and to those who are new we offer a hearty welcome "to take part in this service with us." 6. THE SYNOD OF MID-SOUTH, which elects our Di- rectors and to which we report, is now an "integrated" synod. Heretofore, it has in fact been a "white synod," since its pres- byteries and congregations had only white members. In June it officially united with Blue Ridge Synod, whose presbyteries and churches were composed of Negro members; and also accepted the former United Presbyterian Presbytery of Ten- nessee, whose members were for the most part of the Negro race. This merger, to which Maryville College has an indirect relationship, represents what we at the college count a sig- nificant advance in the life of our Church in the South. 7. THE NEW WOMEN'S DORMITORY is now well along in construction as will be noted on another page. It was delayed by a general strike in the summer but we are still hoping to move into it before Commencement. 8. REHABILITATION OF OLD DORMITORIES made striking progress in the interior remodeling of Carnegie, as you will find reported on the front cover and in these pages. Work in Memorial is scheduled to begin as soon as we move into the new dormitory, and in Pearsons immediately after Commencement. The cost for renewing these three older buildings will total something like $275,000, of which all but $50,000 is being secured through a long-term loan from the U. S. Housing and Home Finance Agency. All of this is part of the Development Program. 9. ATTENTION IS CALLED to an article in this issue by Alumni Executive Secretary James W. Hampton concerning Maryville College graduates who received earned doctorates between 1936 and 1956. His analysis and comparisons should be gratifying to all who are interested in Maryville's scholastic excellence. Cordially yours. President Page Four 7 UK pir/nn.s o/ ncu laiilciui hull /nr imnifti. Idkin by Dr. Griffitts on October NEW DORMITORY As tlif iicc()nip;inying picture will show, the new women's (lorinitory, on wliieli eonstruction began in early summer, is now at full height even though far from complete. The schcchile calls for occupancy in the middle or late spring, to allow the start on rehabilitation work in Memorial referred to by President Lloyd on his page. Even in its skeleton form the building is attracting con- siderable attention and promises to be not onl>' an exceed- ingly solid structure of concrete, steel, brick, and glass, but also one of great artistic beauty. And its location is unsur- passed, on high ground with open views of the Great Smoky Mountains on one side and of the Tennessee Valley and distant Cumberland Mountains on the other. There will be a recreation and utility basement; a ground floor of lobby, offices, and apartments for housemother and guests; and second and third floors of rooms with space for ninety-six students. Interior — the "netc Carnef^ic." CARNEGIE HALL while the big news is the story of the final appearance on campus of the long-awaited residence hall for women, the story of Carnegie Hall is also of far-reaching significance. The renovation and remotleling of this dormitor\. which cost approximately $14(),()()0, has resulted in what is practically a new building. The work was completed last summer in time for the opening of college by B. F. Churchill of Kno.wille. I'lans and specifications were prepared by Barber and Mc.Murry, architects, of Knoxville. Many major changes were made, including new steel stair- ways, new hardwood floors in all rooms and the fourth floor hall, new doors throughout the building with tran.soms elimi- nated, new plumbing, rebuilt bathrooms with marble partitions and tile baths, alumuuun window frames in fourth floor nmms, a clothes closet for each person, alteration in the size of many ri«)ms, additional lounge space on the groimd and first floors with a total loss of twenty-three beds, bringing the student capacity ilown to one hundred and ninety-four men. elevator shaft fire doors, repair and new painting throughout. New furniture finally arri\etl for the lobby and lounge and on Sunday, No\fmber 2. there was an Oix-n House which was attended by between four and five hundred persons. Needless to say, there has been a tremendous improvement in morale among the Carnegie men this year. In all respects, the ilormitor>- is just about the etjuiNalent of a new dormi- tory. As the new residence hall for women becomes available in the spring or whenever the ilate may be. if is planned to turn Memorial over for u.se by men students, thus providing an all-around increase in living quarters which will make po.ssible a substantial increase in enrollment. Page Five ACHIEVEMENT IN EXCELLENCE Tlie remurkable record of Manjville College in the production of Doctorates in the Sciences, Arts, and Humanities for the years 1936-1956. By James W. Hampton Executive Secretary, Maryville College Alumni Association; editor from 1949-1953 the Good Housekeeping Report on Small Colleges; contrdnttor to national magazines and editor of The Small College Annual. In 1948, a book on doctorate-level training called The Baccalaureate Origins of Science Doctorates Awarded in the United States, 1936-1945, was published. It showed clearly that the great preponderance of scientists in America origi- nated in the small colleges of our nation. Some years later (1945), a second study on the same subject but adding a fifteen-year span to the original period made its appearance. In 19.56, a third book, including this time the Arts, Humani- ties, and Social Sciences, doctoral fields not covered in the previous studies, was published, and recently, the most com- prehensive of the four-volume series. Doctorate Production in United States Universities, 1936-1956, with Baccalaureate Origins of Doctorates in Sciences, Arts, and Humanities, ap- peared. Published by the National Academy of Sciences and the National Research Council, this important document com- piled as were the previous studies by the Office of Scientific Personnel under the direction of Dr. M. H. Trytten, combines all doctorate fields into a single volume and covers a span of twenty-one years. As an alumnus of Maryville College, you are justified in wondering how your Alma Mater stacks up in a comprehensive study like this. Has Maryville produced a fair share of Ph.D.'s in the various doctorate fields — the Sciences, Arts, and Humanities — or does the College on the Hill have to take a back seat in comparison with other institutions of higher learning? Prepare yourself for a pleasant shock: a shock that ouglit to make your spine tingle with pride. For Maryville not only holds her own with the best of the small college field — she outstrips most of them, especially the church-related colleges within the Maryville enrollment limitation. Let's start right here at home and see how your Alma Mater compares in doctorate production with other colleges in Tennessee. Note, if you will, how evenly divided the doctorates are in the four fields, a factor which seems to indicate quite clearly that Maryville is indeed a College of Arts and Sciences. Here are ten institutions of higher learn- ing in Tennessee, with their respective doctorate productions; Number of Doctorates in Arts & Nat. Social Humani- CoUege: Sciences Sciences Educa. ties Total Lincoln Memorial 5 2 6 2 15 King 8 2 1 6 17 Tusculum 9 3 4 2 18 Carson-Newman 10 7 8 7 32 Univ. of Chattanooga 18 9 4 12 43 University of ttie South 20 10 2 13 45 Southwestern-at-Memphis . 20 13 2 19 54 MARYVILLE 28 20 17 25 90 VanderbUt University 64 40 13 48 165 University of Tennessee... 126 38 39 15 218 In other words, Maryville tops every institution of higher learning in the state except, of course, Vanderbilt University ( 1957 enrollment, 3,437 ) and the University of Tennessee (1957 enrollment, 13,612)! Actually, the Maryville total is nearly double that of the nearest competitor in the small college field. So much for Tennessee. How does Maryville fare in comparison with some of her sister colleges in the Presby- terian fold — nationally? Again, you are in for something of a shock — a pleasant one. Only Wooster and Lafayette out- rank Maryville, the former with 226 and Lafayette with 155. Enrollment in 19.57 at these colleges was 1,134 and 1,616, respectively. Of the other Presbyterian colleges, twenty-seven had fifty or less in the total doctorate column! Maryville and Occident:d are tied with ninety each. Coe with 88, Park with 87, Monmouth with 86, and Muskingum with 83 are Mary- ville's closest competitors. Which seems to indicate that Maryville alumni can hold their heads up in any Presbyterian company! Enrollment at Maryville in 1957 was 732, in case you're interested in comparative enrollment figures. So much for the Maryville rating against ( 1 ) home state competition, and (2) Presbyterian institutions of higher learn- ing. Now I'd like to get in some pretty stiff comparisons nationally with outstanding small colleges of all denomina- tions as well as those which are independent. For a list which affords top calibre comparison, I shall use the original Good Housekeeping list of recommended small colleges which appeared in my 1949 report and was considered by leading educators an excellent representative list. This list was expanded in subsequent reports by action of an Advisory Board consisting of leading American edu- cators, but remained a solid basic list in all of the Annual Reports. There were fifty of these colleges in the 1949 study. They are listed below, with their 1957 enrollment and the total doctorates in the 21 -year period of the Trytten report: Albion 1,283 Allegheny 1,092 Antioch 1,098 Baker 543 Baldwin- Wallace 1,895 Beloit 1,017 Bethany (W. Va.) 570 Birm.-South 1,047 Central (Mo.).... 589 Centre 452 Clark 1,410 Colby 1,261 Cornell 769 Davidson 854 Earlham 807 Furman 1,379 Gettysburg 1,381 Grove City 1,284 Hamline 1,226 Hanipden- Sydney 399 Hendrix 429 Hiram 560 Hope 1,036 Jamestown 477 Knox 795 78 Lawrence 881 106 142 Loras 1,269 45 143 Marietta 1,033 74 65 732 90 605 891 11 67 Millsaps 52 89 Monmouth 654 86 62 114 Muskingum Our Lady of the Lake 1,097 508 83 9 89 Park 344 474 87 36 163 66 Randolph- Macon 5?, Redlands 1,241 108 120 156 Ripon St. Lawrence .... 580 1,.582 43 71 Shorter 236 586 , 1,324 4 71 99 97 74 Southwestern-at- Memphis Trinity (Conn.) 54 94 75 U. of the South 1 498 45 Ursinus , 686 78 64 Wabash , 598 , 818 , 1,293 . 1,110 113 47 77 Whittier 60 120 Willamette 96 34 Wofford , 790 74 98 Yankton . 229 49 Of these fifty outstanding small colleges throughout the nation, Maryville, in total actual doctorates, ranks sixteenth with a total of ninety. Top third isn't bad, but it seems fair to eliminate those with an enrollment of more than one thousand, which cuts out Clark (163), Antioch (143), Page Six Allegheny (1-12), Mope (120), BirmiriRham-Soiitlum (111), Redlands (108), Furman (99), Gettysburg (97), Willamette (96), ami Trinity (9-4), leaving only six eoUeges with an enrollment of less than one tiiousand. of which Mary\ille stands sixth. We eoukl stretch a point, in all fairness, and go a step further, eliminating the men's colleges and the private coed colleges and work Mary\ille up to first place as the top, church-related, coeducational college in the entire group of fifty, which is actually the case. But these three lists ought to convince you of something you knew all along anyway: that Maryville College is doing an outstanding job, one of which you can be jiroud, one about which you can do some talking. This is incontrovertible fact, not the vague, intan- gible bombast of college promotional material! This is out- standing achievement in excellence of which every alumnus of Mary\ille should be aware. Top small college in Tennessee in producing doctorates in four major fields, among the leading three or four Presby- terian church-related colleges regardless of size, and in the upper five or six per cent among all church-related colleges in the United States, within enrollment limitations: this is your Alma Mater. As Maryville embarks upon a major Development Pro- gram outlined on another page in this Bulletin, we hope you will take an active part in telling the Maryville Story — to prospective students, to prospective donors, to all whose in- terest is essential to the College. For this Story is well worth the telling! FACULTY NEWS Two faculty members returned to the campus with Ph.D. degrees. Miss Walker, Associate Professor of History, was on leave of absence last year doing graduate work at the University of North Carolina and the University of Paris, France. Her degree was granted by the University of North Carolina in June 1958. The title of her dissertation is "Life and Status of a Generation of French Women from 1150- 1200." Mr. Lynn, Associate Professor of Business Adminis- tration, was awarded the degree of Doctor of Philosophy by the University of Illinois, Urbana, and is returning to the campus after an absence of two years. His dissertation is entitled "Wholesaling Used Automobiles." Dr. Lynn is not only teaching this year but he is also helping with the manage- ment of Carnegie Hall. He and his wife (Naomi Burgos, '54) and daughter, Mary Lou, are living in the right-hand comer apartment in Carnegie. Other faculty members returning after an absence from the college are: Mr. Ainsworth, Political Science, who for the past year has done graduate study at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland; Miss Blair, English, who has been doing graduate study at the University of Tennessee; and Miss Crews, Music, who for the past year has done graduate study at the Florida State University. Continuing on leave is Miss Martin, Spanish and French, who is studying at the University of Madrid, Spain. Four other persons are absent from the College this fall. Miss Craven, Drama and Speech, will be away on Sabbatical Leave for the entire year studying at Yale University; Miss Hunter, Dr. Lloyd's Secretary, following visits to Hawaii, Philippines, and the Far Fast this summer, is spending six months in India doing volimtary work under Dr. Dorothy Lee I'erris ( '28 ) at the Frances Newton Hospital in Fer<JZepore; Dr. and Mrs. Queener are on Sabbatical Leave during the first semester and are located in London, England, where Dr. Quccner is studying at Queen Mary's College, University of London, and Mrs. (.)ueener is studying in the Department of Ilealtli Kducalion, University of London.

A number of faculty members were abroad this summer. After completing his study in Switzerland, Mr. Ainsworth returned to the United States via Holland and the Brussels World's Fair. Others visiting in Europe were Mr. Bloy, Miss Lightfoot, Dr. Lloyd, Mrs. McNiell, and Miss Davies which was a part of her trip around the world. Another traveler, to a far-away state, was Mrs. Kramer, who spent most of the summer in Alaska with her daughter and family. Several of last year's faculty engaged in further study this summer. Mr. Bloy studied organ with Helmut W'alcha in Frankfurt, Germany, and piano with Bruno Seidlhofer at the International Academy, Mozarteum, Salzburg, Austria; .\Ir. Cragan and Miss Moose were at the University of Tennessee; Miss Guss studied at the Concordia Lutheran Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri; and Mr. Harter was at Union Theological Seminary again. Teaching this summer were Dr. Barker and Dr. Briggs at Furman University, Dr. Griffitts at Birmingham-Southern, and Mr. Howell at the University of Tennessee. Weddings among the faculty included Mr. Collins who married Marion Lois Dando on June 1 and Mr. Witherspoon who married Mary Lee, '56, on June 21. Additions to families are reported by the Beards, a little girl, Caroline, born July 28; and the Tom Cragans, a boy by the name of Dan, born August 4. Also, Dr. Buchanan is reporting the birth of a granddaughter, Margaret LeNoir Buchanan, born September II. Several members of the faculty ha\e had articles and choral works published during the past year. Mr. Collins had "Superstitions and Belief Tales from Louisville, Kentucky," published; Reinholdt Publishing Company published a Chemi- cal Encyclopedia in which Dr. Griffitts had an article on Catalytic Poisons; Mr. Hampton's article, "Is Your Child Col- lege Material?" appeared in The Rotarian for May 1958; Harr>- Harter had a spiritual, "Koom bah-ya" and "One Church, One Faith, One Lord" published in Jime 1958 b>- Shawnee Press, Inc.; Dr. Hunter's "Keats' Idea of Beauty" appeared in Tennessee Studies in English; Dr. L\nn had an article in Business History Reiiew imder the title of "In- stallment Credit Before 1870"; a series of articles on Soviet Education by Dr. McClelland appeared in The Maryville- Alcoa Daily Times this past summer; and Mr. Williams wrote a c-ouple of articles for the Augvist 1958 }oumal of Proto- zoology. Page Seven MARYVILLE COLLEGE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM Raijtnond I. Braliams, Jr. The Board of Directors at its Spring Meeting in 1956 voted "That the President and Chairman of the Directors be authorized to appoint a committee, known as a Special Long Range Planning Committee, to give special study to the future development of the College." Of course, both short and long range planning has always been part of the regular on-going service of the Directors, the President, and the Faculty and Staff; but this was to be special, intensive, and comprehensive. Pursuant to this action, a special committee of thirteen was appointed, composed of the President of the College as Chairman, the Chairman of the Board, si.x: other Directors, and five other faculty and staff members including the Dean. This Special Long Range Planning Committee has met from time to time during the past two years; as a whole committee and also in four sub-committees dealing with: (1) Curricular and E.xtra-Curricular Offerings and Program; (2) Faculty and Staff; (3) Physical Facilities; (4) Relationships. A year ago seventeen Faculty Study Committees were appointed by the President; also alumni have provided useful information and estimates through questionnaires sent out by the Long Range Planning Committee, and have made valuable sugges- tions. With the aid of the studies and suggestions of these various groups, the Board of Directors has recently taken a number of significant actions relating especially to additional funds and clientele. A Development Committee has been erected, consisting of the Chairman of the Board, Joe C. Camble; the President of the College, Ralph W. Lloyd; the following fund-raising committee chairmen: David W. Proffitt (Capital Gifts Com- mittee), Earl W. Blazer (Individual Current Gifts Commit- tee), Rev. Dr. Francis W. Pritehard (Church Relations Com- mittee), Howard F. Lamon, Jr. (Alumni Annual Fund), Edwin J. Best (Foundations Committee), the chairman of a Business and Corporation Committee, and a General Chair- man not yet appointed. Organized work is being inaugurated on the first stage of a new long range financial program of which alumni as well as others will be hearing more specifically from time to time. All of this effort is related to the total purpose of maintaining and increasing the greatness of Maryville College. On September I, 19.58, Raymond L Brahams, Jr., began service as Director of Development. At the same time through a special arrangement, Mr. Milton L. Smith, on leave of absence from Lake Forest College where he has achieved distinction as Vice President for Development and Public Relations, began to give about one fourth of his time during the ne.xt year to Maryville College. They are leading in the organization of the Development Program. "Brick" Brahams, as he is generally known, is a graduate of Maryville College in the Class of 1949, holds an M.A. degree in history from the University of Colorado, served as high school teacher and athletic coach in Phoenix, Arizona, and for the past two years has been Director of Public Relations at Whitworth College, Spokane, Washington. "Brick" was an excellent student at Maryville and he and his brother "Hap," who then lived in California, were star ath- letes at Maryville. Alumni from those years will remember "Brick's" high scores as, with his 6'-4," he played center on the Nhiryvillc College basketball team. His wife was Ellen Collins who graduated from Maryville in the Class of 1950. -Ralph W. Lloyd NEW DIRECTORS Rev. Paul Floyd Jones, Pastor of the Graystone Presbyte- rian Church, Kno.xville, Tennessee. He is a native of Ohio, a graduate of Davidson College, North Carolina, and Union Theological Seminary, Richmond, Virginia. He was a pastor in Florida and New York before coming from North Pres- byterian Church, New York City, to First Church, Elizabeth- ton, Tennessee, in 1950, and to Graystone during the past year. Two of his daughters have attended Maryville College from which Patricia graduated in 1955. Rev. Dr. William Robert Dawson, a graduate of Maryville College and Chair- man of the Board of Directors from 1927 to 19.32, was the founder of the Graystone Church and its pastor for a third of a century. And Mr. Jones' immediate predecessor there was Rev. James R. Smith, a graduate of Maryville College and for several years Alumni and Public Relations Secretary at the College. R. Arnold Kramer, Kno.xville, Tennessee, is a practicing attorney in the law firm of Kramer, Dye, McNabb, & Green- wood, of which his father, Russell R. Kramer, is the senior partner and with which his brother Jackson C. Kramer, '42, also is associated. Arnold is a graduate of Maryville College in the Class of 1940, and of the Law School of the University of Michigan. As a college student he was a leading athlete and debater. The family has long been prominent in the Methodist Church. Arnold was the oldest among four sons and a daughter in his parents' home, all five of whom gradu- ated at Maryville College. He married a Maryville classmate, Sara Lee Heliums, of Rotan, Te.xas. Rev. Robert Barr Stewart, Pastor of Second Presbyterian Church, Chattanooga, since the fall of 1956. He was born in Wishaw, Scotland, took a teacher's degree in shorthand in Scotland and a Royal Society of Arts degree in accounting in London, and for some time did sports and other news- paper reporting in London. He then came to this country, decided to take a liberal arts college course, graduated at the College of the Ozarks, and went to Princeton Theological Seminary. After graduating at Princeton, he was a pastor in Maryland and New Jersey until he came to Tennessee. In Chattanooga he succeeded Rev. Donald A. Spencer, now of Pittsburgh, also a Director of Maryville College. Rev. Dr. Edgar A. Elmore, a graduate of Maryville College, and Chairman of the Board of Directors from 1906 to 1927, was pastor of this same church for more than thirty-five years. Page Eight THE ALUMNI DIRECTORY With ;i iiii;inimous vote i)i the Executive Board of the Ahiiiiiii Association to provide eiicoiiragciiient, the piibhcation of tlu.' 1958 Ahiinni Directory was undertaken in hite October, 1957, and cuhninated nearly ten months later with tlu- long- awaited appearance of the finished prothicl. More than one liundred notes and letters have already hecn received from enthusiastic ahunni, ranging from pithy "Congratulations on a job well done" to a lengthy two-page epistle from an alumnus of an older generation who was roused to the heights of nostalgic reminiscence by the names which the Directory recalled. Acknowledgement of these letters and of the many checks in extra amounts from pleased alumni has been an impossi- bility. Checks have ranged from the fifty cents set as the cost to as high as twenty-five and thirty dollars! Alumni ( and alumnae! ) from whom we haven't heard in years were moved to express their thanks in writing, like the alumna who quipped: "I have spent all afternoon looking at it . . . You have literally heaped coals of fire on my head by keeping me on the mailing list when I have been so remiss. I promise to do better in the future." Typical comment comes from the Rev. John T. Wriggins, '28, of Bremen, Ohio, who writes: "The Directory should go a great way toward bringing Maryville folks together." "A monumental job," comments Beth H. Kemen, '47, of Craw- fordsville, Indiana. And Dr. Wendell Whetstone, ex'42, now of Vero Beach, Florida, says, "You and your staff are to be congratulated on the fine completion of a staggering under- taking." The heart-warming experience of browsing through the Directory and renewing acquaintances with names long-forgot- ten was emphasized by many. Mrs. John C. ( Myrtle Ardis ) Groome, '25, Mt. Holly Springs, Pa., reports an immediate personal experience while holding a conference at Carlisle ( Pa. ) High School. She was called to the phone, and a "voice of the past," that of Dr. Clinton M. Puff, '26, of Scottdale, Pa., came to her ears. It was the result of a perusing of the Alumni Directory by Dr. Puff, who was at- tending a meeting in nearby Harrisburg. And all the way from Vernon, Texas, Mrs. Curtis Renfro (Vera Scales) writes: "I have just returned from a week in the hospital to find my new Directory. Needless to say, I spent many hours studying it — and now I can write letters to some of my friends." From "right around home," Mary W. Wolfe, ex'20, of Piney Flats, Tenn., offers the following comment: "The Direc- tory has meant the renewing of some old friendships that I doubt I would have made otherwise. College friendships are just different and more lasting than others." And Mrs. N. H. (Ruth Buchanan) Briggs, '30, of Maplewood, N. J., echoes the idea: "The Alumni Directory is a wonderful piece of work. I have been poring over it, looking up old friends, and enjoying reminiscences." Lest you think the alumnae are the only one impelled to say something, here is a quote from Lciand T. Waggoner. '38, a Vice President of the Life Insurance Company of North America in Philadelphia, Pa.: "The Directory \\'as received, and I just want to say that I think this is the best project the Alumni Association has ever had." Jim Dance, '51, a real pro who knows what he's talking about since he is a librarian at the Detroit Public Library with an impres- sive record of outstanding T\' productions and similar acliieve- ments, chimes in with this word: "The Directory is a compact and useful little volume, and you are all to be congratulated for producing it with such efficiency." Jim then makes a couple of top-notch suggestions which we are tucking away for future reference. There were omissions and errors. We're sorry, and we appreciate the fact that ahunni have been extremely under- standing. Don Briggs, who practically fathered the project as Alumni Association President last year, wrote a highly complimentary note thovigh his wife's name had not appeared! Actually, her name has not been on our mailing list as all communications from the College are addressed to Don, which explains the omission but does not excuse it. For your in- formation, she was Ruth Farlee, ex'34. Joe C. Gamble, Chairman of the Board of Directors, also tripped us up with several corrections among his family, and although we par- tially saved face, he had us dead to rights on at least one. But Joe and Don and all the other patient alumni not only came through with a congratulatory note, despite the errors of commission and omission, but also helped with a sub- stantial contribution over and above the fifty cent minimum! As of this date — late October — we've received S640 since August first, and approximately $150 had come in prior to last summer. That's about half the publication cost. 'N'uff said? We knew we were vulnerable on several counts, and three or four criticisms, all very kindly, have been made on these points. We are taking steps to remedy each. A handy supplement for alumni in the years from the 1880's to about 1910 is planned immediately, for it is indeed difficult for some of them to search through the fine print of the Direc- tory in an effort to find the few names of their classmates and friends; the Class of 1958 will also come in for special treatment in another supplement; and the many corrected addresses which we knew would be the inevitable result of the publication of the Directory will be made available shortly. By the time we get around to another edition of file Directory, we'll be set up (we hope) to handle either an alphabetical or a class by class Directory — or both. In addi- tion, of course, to the present geographical presentation. You'll have to admit we made a good try! THE BEWLEY STORY The Associated Press last May carried on its wires throughout the nation the fascinating story of one of the Maryville College graduates in the Class of 1901. It barely missed by a week the perfect timing which would have made it a natural for the Commencement Week program. Dr. Luther B. Bewlcy, who has been tenncd the "father of education" in the Philippines, was the alunmus thus hon- ored. Dr. Bewley went to the Philippines in 1902, just a year after graduation from Maryville, and served variously as teacher, di\ision superintendent of sch(X)ls, assistant di- rector of education, and finally, as Director of Education, a post which he held for eighteen years, the longest period any man has held this position. Dr. Bewlcy retired from public service in 1957, shortK' after the death of the late President Ramon Magsaysay in a plane crash. He now lives in the Manila Hotel, where the .■\P dispatch says his secluded life is punctuated by visits to or from his two young grandchildren.

COMMENCEMENT WEEK-END The week-end of Commencement got off to a rousing start with the Alumni Dinner, when the 25-year Class as usual stole the show, particularly as Don Briggs, retiring as Presi- dent of the Alumni Association, was a member of the 25-year group. The quarter-centuiy club is pictured on tiie previous page. Nine members of the thirty-year Class, including Mar\' Helen Crowder Barrett, Beta MeCall, Mary Clopton Kring, Joe L. Marshall, J. Earl McCall, Ethel Adkins (Mrs. Shorty) McCall, Betty Griffes Newberry, and Alice Stinecipher Black- burn were present. They autographed a menu and sent it to their class President, Gordon Jeffries, who was unable to be here. About twcK'e or fifteen members of the 2()-year Class were present, and Dr. Jim Proffitt and his wife were hosts to the group at an informal luncheon. Spike's Restaurant was the scene of the noon reunion of the ten-year Class. Fourteen class members attended, the total including husbands and wives reaching eighteen. The members of the Class of 1948 who were present included Barbara Blair, Martha (Brindley) Ziegler, Janet Campbell, Elizabeth (Crawford) Roper, Alverta (Fink) Smilie, Merrill Griibbs, Marilyn ( Hartpence ) Torrey, Thomas Horst, Margaret Howell, Mary Gene ( Lawson ) Roberts, Scott McClure, Julia (Pancoast) Householder, Thomas Wheeler, and Lorraine (Swift) Abbott. Additional class members responded to the hmcheon annoimcements but were imablc to be present. Six- teen of these wrote letters which were read aloud. It was hoped that the news contained in the letters and the informa- tion obtained from those ,il the luncheon could be duplicated and sent to members of the Class of 19-18. However, Tom Horst, who undertook the job, was tied up unexpectedly for the sununer, so the project was not completed. Tom regrets th.it it h.is been impossible to finish the job. Page Elccen DEATH OF JUDGE HOUSTON DEATH OF BONNIE HUDSON BROWN One of the most honored names among Maryville College alumni and Maryville College Directors has long been that of Judge Samuel O'Grady Houston, '98, who died on August 29, 1958. He was Chairman of the Directors for twenty- one years, from 1932 to 1953. At the Fall Meeting of the Board of Directors, October 17, President Ralph W. Lloyd read the following minute which he had prepared concerning Judge Houston, and we are glad to make this available to all alumni ; Samuel O'Grady Houston, a Director of Maryville College for 48 years, chairman of the Board for twenty- one years, and an Honorary Director for one year, died at his home on Island Home Pike in Kno.wille, on August 29, 1958, at the age of eighty-seven. Judge Houston, as he was universally known, was born on April 13, 1871, in the venerable parish of Eusebia Presbyterian Church, twelve miles east of Mary- ville; and his boyhood home was there. His paternal ancestors came to East Tennessee from Virginia. A grand uncle was General Sam Houston who lived as a youth in the Maryville area before going west to achieve fame in Tennessee and Te.xas. Samuel O'Grady Houston and four brothers in due time attended Maryville College and Samuel graduated with the B.A. degree in 1898. He then attended the Law School of the University of Tennessee, from which he received the degree of Bachelor of Laws in 1902. He was married to Catherine Love whom he met when she too was a student at Maryville College. For the twenty-four years after graduation from Law School he practiced law in Knoxville. In 1926 he was elected Judge of Knox County in which office he served sixteen years, until 1942, when at the age of seventy-one he returned to the practice of law in which he continued until forced by health to retire. Judge Houston served on many civic committees and boards to which men of integrity, judgment, and devotion to the public good are called. He was for many years an elder in the Presbyterian Church, and for long periods served as Sunday School teacher and superintendent. For more than fifteen years he was Chairman of Pres- bytery's Committee on National Missions. He was closely related to Maryville College: as a student and graduate; as father of three sons who at- tended the College; as a member of the Board of Directors for forty-nine years, being elected in 1909 only eleven years after his graduation; and as Chairman from 1932 to 1953. Some of the present Directors will remember well the interest, the judiciousness, and the kindliness with which he presided here for so many years. Two Presi- dents and a host of others have testified to his interested, wise and loyal counsel and leadership. Judge Houston exemplified the Christian spirit and ideals of Maryville College to a remarkable degree, and in 1938 the College recognized this officially in conferring upon him the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws. As he closes his earthly career in the fullness of years we thank God again for his life and work. About the middle of August Bonnie Hudson Brown and her husband. Rev. George E. Brown, went to Kentucky for a short vacation before the opening of college and the begin- ning of her fall work as Assistant Professor of Biology. She drove the car and seemed well. On arrival she noticed some slight trouble in coordination, soon found it increasing, ulti- mately was taken to a hospital in Louisville where diagnosis indicated a brain tumor, an operation was performed, and then a second operation. But the condition was so serious that she became steadily worse and died on September 12. Her body was brought back to Maryville for burial. On September 14 President Ralph \V. Lloyd and Professor Horace E. Orr conducted the funeral service in the College Chapel. Mrs. Brown graduated at Maryville College in 1927 and was a member of the Faculty from 1929 initil her death. She was married in 1936 to Rev. George E. Brown, a Maryville graduate of 1933. She was an excellent teacher, was much beloved and her loss is a serious one for the College. Since this Almnni Issue went to press there have occurred two deaths in the Faculty and Staff about which fuller information will be given to alumni later. Dr. Horace E. Orr, a Professor at Maryville College since 1920, died on November 1; and Mrs. Elizabeth Benedict Hall, whose service as Matron of the College Infirmary began in 1920, died on November 11. Page Twelve PRESIDENT LLOYD'S TRAVEL ABROAD FEBRUARY MEETINGS - 1959 During 1958 President Ralpli W. Lloyd luis iiuido three trips outside of the United States. All have been in eon- nection with the Churehes' ecumenical mission and relation- ships. During August Dr. Llo\d attended two meetings across the Atlantic. The first was that of the Executive Committee of the World Presbyterian Alliance in Edinburgh, Scotland, August 4-9. The second was that of the Central Committee of the World Council of Churches at Nyborg Strand, Den- mark, August 21-28. He and Mrs. Lloyd, accompanied by their daughter Ruth Lloyd Kramer, M.C. '47, and their niece Margaret Sloan of Pittsburgh, went over on the Queen Mary to Southampton, England, and returned by air ( KLM ) from Amsterdam. There were visits also to the World's Fair in Brussels, to Paris, and to Munich, Germany; and Dr. Lloyd had speaking engagements in London, did a BBC broadcast in Edinburgh, and spent a week in Geneva, Switzerland, on business of the World Presbyterian Alliance. The last week in September took President Lloyd to Mexico City as official representative of the World Presby- terian Alliance to the Second Conference of the Presbyterian Churches of Latin America. There were present appro.xi- mately seventy-five representatives from eight Latin American countries. Dr. Lloyd was one of the speakers on the pro- gram and on Sunday preached in the principal Methodist Church of Mexico City. On the way to Mexico, he stopped at Trinity University, San Antonio, Texas, where he spoke at the opening chapel convocation of the year. He saw there three Maryville College alumni who are on the faculty and staff there: Frank R. Neff, Jr., '33 (Associate Professor of Religion), Stanley H. Hall '37 (Associate Professor of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation) and Walter P. West, '38 ( Director of Admissions ) . During the first half of November, Dr. Lloyd visited Brazil and other countries of South America, in behalf of the World Presbyterian Alliance. He is General Chairmari of the Committee on Program and Arrangements for the 18th General Council of the Alliance which will be held in Brazil July 27 to August 6, 1959. This is a meeting held usually once in five years with delegates representing a Presbyterian and Reformed Church constituency of about forty-five million in over forty countries. Dr. Lloyd and Dr. Marcel Pradervand of Geneva, Switzerland, (M.C. Honorary Alumus, '49), Gen- eral Secretary of the Alliance, were together in Brazil con- ferring with Brazilian church leaders on arrangements for the world meeting next siunmer. He filled various speaking appointments in Protestant churches in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Bogota, Colombia, and in other church groups including J. M.C. (Col- lege) in Brazil where Olson Pemberton, Jr., M.C. '43, is Dean, and the Presbyterian Theological Seminary at Campinas, Brazil. There are a number of Maryville College alumni in Latin America and Dr. Lloyd was able to see several of them both at the September Conference in Mexico City and on this trip to Brazil. The 83rd scries of I'Vbruary Meetings is scheduled for February 4-12, 19.59. The leader and speaker will be the Rev. Joseph J. Copeland, D.D., Pastor of Second Presbyterian Church, Knoxville, Tennessee. -Associated with him to torm the "February Meetings Team" of three will be Rev. John Magill, D.D., Pastor of Abington Presbyterian Church, Abington, Pennsylvania, as song leader; and Henry Barraclough, LL.D., Philadelphia, as pianist. This will be the second time Dr. Copeland has led the Meetings, the first being in 1954. The invitation to return, which he has generously accepted, is evidence of the great effectiveness of his ministry then. Dr. Copeland has been Pastor of Second Church, Knoxville, since 1952, when he came from the First Presbyterian Church, Denton, Te.xas, as successor to Dr. Clifford E. Barbour. Since the 1954 Meetings his church has built a large and beautiful completely new plant at a cost of nearly one million dollars. He is a graduate of Trinity University, Texas, and McCormick Theo- logical Seminary, Chicago; is a member of the Board of Directors of Maryville College, and of the Board of Christian Education of the United Presbyterian Church in the U.S..\. This will be the sixth time that Dr. Magill has led the singing. He is a graduate of Maryville College in the Class of 1939 and of McCormick Seminary and renders this ser\-ice as a kind of avocation. Music is not his vocation but merely one of his various accomplishments. He takes time for the Meetings from heavy duties as pastor of a church of nearly twenty-five hundred members. Likewise Dr. Barraclough ( "Barrie" ) gives this big block of time from a crowded program which is quite apart from music. As is well known, he is Associate Stated Clerk of the General Assembly of the United Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. When a young man he came from England to America as pianist of the famous evangelistic team of Chapman and Alexander, and his playing in the February Meetings is a brief annual return to that notable period in his career. This will be his eighth year at Maryville. The Meetings will open on Wednesday morning, Febru- ary 4, and close on Thursday morning, Febnuiry 12, with daily services at 9:45 a. m. and 7:00 p. m. IN APPRECIATION .... The spring issue of the Alumni Bulletin was dedicated to Mr. Ernest C. Brown, or "Brownie," as he is well known to hundreds of alumni, lie and Mrs. Brown have received uiany messages from friends all over the world following the publi- cation of the Btillctiii. They ha\e asked that these man>- notes and letters be acknowledged and the writers thanked in this issue. It is a virtual impossibility for them to answer them all personally. But the> arc truly apprcciati\e. Page Thirteen SPORT-LIGHT ON THE HILL Facing a tough schedule with a typical situation this fall — few returning letternien and a number of promising freshmen — Coach John A. (J. D. ) Davis and his assistants, Marvin Mitchell and Tom Cragan, switched from the tradi- tional single-wing to the T-formation which was used so successfully at the close of the 1957 season. Only nine letter- men returned this fall, and the squad numbered at least fifty per cent freshmen. Opening the season was a newcomer, Gordon Military College, of Georgia, an unknown which turned out to be a tartar, taking the Scots by an 8-6 score. It was a good game, close all the way, and a couple of breaks could have turned things in favor of the Highlanders. But the cards simply didn't fall that way. Centre College of Kentucky, traditionally one of our better games, was another squeeker, with the Scots coming out once more on the short end of the score, 1.3-7. Jacksonville State, of Alabama, a powerhouse as usual, ground out a 28-8 victory over the Highlanders in their third start. Then the injury jinx, successor to last year's flu epidemic, hit the small but fighting squad, with three starters sidelined with knee injuries and an assortment of other ailments which really riddled the team. Georgetown of Kentucky, a top- heavy favorite to roll over the Scots, had its hands full and was happy to escape with a 25-12 victory. The scrappy Highlanders, with half a dozen freshmen in the starting lineup, made a real battle of it but went down from sheer force of numbers, outweighed in the line by more than twenty-five poimds per man. Emory and Henry, with one of its best teams in years, caught the decimated Maryville eleven in the Homecoming game before an enthusiastic and loyal alumni crowd and steam-rollered them by a convincing 42-0 count. The High- landers never could generate steam in this one and were clearly overpowered. Sewanee, enjoying a pigskin renaissance with a slick squad ably coached by Shirley Majors, then powered its way to a 46-0 victory over the Maryville eleven, making the season's record after si.x games a rather unimposing 0-6 count. Remaining on the schedule are contests with powerful Lenoir-Rhyne, for three years in succession the winner of the North State Conference in North Carolina, Concord State, of West Virginia, and the final contest of the season with arch- rival Carson-Newman, Lenoir-Rhyne packs too many heavy guns for the Highlanders to hope for much in this engage- ment, so whatever is to be salvaged from a disheartening season will have to be gained in the Concord State game and the Carson-Newman setto, when anything can happen. In the meantime, we'll be hoping! Again, the Alumni Association will present two trophies to members of the football squad, an award to the most valu- able player, and a similar trophy to the most improved player. It won't be long now before the winter sports season starts. Basketball hopes are high and the wrestling squad will have several veterans. Here are the schedules: MARYVILLE COLLEGE BASKETBALL SCHEDULE- 1958-1959 Dec. 8— Tenn.

The final record was two wins and four losses. The two victories, one over Carson-Newman by a 5-4 count and the other over the Uni- versity of Tennessee by a 3-0 score, were very encouraging, and showed definite promise of better things next year, as the twin victories came in the final games of the schedule. Last year, two games were played, both resulting in losses to King College. King also took the measure of the High- landers this fall in two well-played games, 2-1 and 3-0. The other two early season losses were to U.T. by a 3-2 count and to Carson-Newman in a 3-0 contest.
