®hF Alumni Pr^stii^nt*B il^saagr 


Dr. Watkins, whose home is in Loudon, Tennessee, 
graduated from JMarj'ville College in 1923 and from 
V;mdcrbilt Medical School, Nashville, in 1927. He 
interned at Knoxville General Hospital. He has been 
practicing medicine in Loudon since July 13, 1927, 
and operates two farms. He is the father of three 
sons and two daughters. He is a loyal aluiimus and 
visits the Hill often during football season and 

Dear Fellow Alumni ! 

October is here again. That means that another year cf activity and progress 
has already started on "the Hill." 

The Fine Arts Center was officially dedicated at the Commencement Exercises 
last Mav, 1951. What a Fine Arts Building it is! In fact, it is a great step forward in 
the architectural lines and beauty that has never before been equalled on the college 

At this same Commencement T was elected your Alumni President for the en- 
suing vear. For this honor you ha\'c bestowed on me I am indeed grateful. I shall 
endeavor to do my best for the Alumni Association in my meager way. 

Our chief concern as an Alumni Association now, as I see it, is to get under 
way the construction of our much-needed Chapel building with the funds we now 
ha^'e on hand. We must bear in mind that we may be called on for more money to 
complete the same because of the ever-increasing cost of building materials, etc. In your 
year of planned giving, please go your limit to help us put this project over the top. 
A Chapel is a MUST! You alumni who ha\'e not returned in recent years try to vis- 
ualize Marvville College without a Chapel, hampered in it? many activities. Let 
us put our shoulders to the wheel f^ make the "Samuel T\'ndale Wilson Memorial 
Chapel" a reality. I feel that would be as great a step forward as we of the Alumni 
Association can hope to achieve for our Alma Mater. 

Remember our Homecoming G;me and Annual Barbecue October 27. Plan to 
be there.

Year's Opening. Our 133rd academic year opened officially 
on Tuesday, September 4, when new students reported for the 
beginning of their registration and orientation program. Return- 
ing students began to register the next day, and the first classes 
were two days later on Friday, September 7. As all alumni of 
the past ten years know, our. early opening date in the fall and 
our early closing date in the spring are due to our plan of 
completing the first .semester's work before Christmas. This 
schedule is different from that of most colleges, but both our 
students and faculty like it because it clears off examinations 
before vacation. Since winter and spring combined are longer 
than the fall alone there is no need to "hurry back'' after Christ- 
mas. The \acation this year will last from December 2! until 
January 16, almost four weeks. This helps all to accept the in- 
conveniences of the early opening. The 1952 Commencement 
date is May 21. 

Fall Semester Enrolmen. On this page last April I said, 
"My personal expectations (about enrolment for 1951-52) are 
less optimistic than those of most of my college president 
friends." As I write this (which, because of time required for 
printing, is considerably earlier than your reading) there are no 
extensive enrolment reports available. But a preliminary survey 
by the New York Times finds a general decrease ranging from 
59r to iO'A in those colleges and universities checked. In most 
cases the decrease is larger in colleges like Maryville and smaller 
in the big universities, although I note a direct check at the 
University of Illinois shows a drop of 13%. At Maryville 
College it is 14%. The loss is in men students. We have 10 
more women than we had a year ago but 143 fewer men. Of 
our 700 students, 45% are men and 55%. women. During the 
past four years 55% of our students have been men, a material- 
ly larger percentage than before the war. The highest enrolment 
of veterans was 273 in 1946, representing 64% of all men 
enrolled. At present only 14% of our men students are veterans. 
The first semester enrolments at Maryville, in the six years 
since World War II have been respectively, 833, 898. 886, 905, 
828, 700. Whether another year will sec the enrolment of men 
go up again cannot now be anticipated. 

Current Operating Budget. We closed the last fiscal year 

on May 31 with a deficit, the largest deficit in the twenty years 
I have been at Maryville. It was not unexpected, but it was un- 
fortunate that we had to cut into our accumulated surplus at a 
time when the problem of balancing future budgets is increas- 
ing. In these twenty years we have had but few deficits. But 
with a reduced number of dollars because of a reduced number 
of students and with a reduced value to each dollar because of 
inflated prices, I cannot at this time see how we can balance the 
1951-1952 budget. What we can save on the smaller enrolment 
is nowhere near as much as the losses of so many tuitions, as 
relatively modest as each tuition is at Maryville. We shall be 
working on the budget problem throughout the year. Alumni 
help greatly when they give on the "Living Endowment" plan. 
Many more should do so. The Alumni Office or Dr. F. A. 
Griffitts or any one else at the College will be happy to arrange 
for participation. If you are not in the plan, I hope you will 
write at once. 

The yiew Buildings. On another page I am writing an 
account of the Dedication of the Fine Arts Center last May and 
of the Competitions in Music and Art. Studies of the tj'pe of 
Chapel to be built are under way. It became necessary to build 
a new unit of our heating plant, partly to increase the plant's 
capacity and partly to be prepared if either of the present 
boilers should break down. We are just now completing an en- 
largement of the building, the installation of a single boiler 
equal in capacity to the two older boilers, and the erection of 
a second chimney equal in height to the present chirnney but 
larger in diameter. This heating plant addition is costing almost 
$100,000. We have no funds to cover this except on a temporary 
basis. We very much need gifts for this purpose as well as for 
the Chapel. Progress costs and the calls are therefore continuous 
upon us all. 

The Summer. During six weeks of July and August, Mrs. 
Lloyd and I were in the British Isles and Europe. Of this there 
is an account on another page. We returned saddened by the 
conflicts and problems we saw yet encouraged considerably by 
the fellowship of Christian faith and the will for unity in the 
Churches. And we are more certain than ever that the Christian 
gospel and Christian education are essential in our world. 

Sincerely yours,

speaking at the dedication 


The climax of the Fine Arts Festival, conducted l?st May 
in connection with the Commencement program, was the 
service of dedication of the Fine Arts Center. 

The service was held in the outdoor court of the Center. 
President Lloyd presided. The building was formally pre- 
sented to the College by the donors, Mr. and Mrs. Glen A. 
Lloyd, of Chicago, each of whom made a brief but impressive 
address. There was a short address of acceptance by Attorney 
Joe C. Gamble, '26, Recorder of the Directors, representing 
Judge Samuel O. Houston, '98, Chairman of the Directors, 
whose presence was prevented by illness. Miss Katharine C. 
Davies, Chairman of the Division of Fine Arts, spoke of the 
use of the building. 

Greetings were e.xpressed by Dr. Price Doyle, President, and 
Dr. Burnet C. Tuthill, Secretary, of the National Association 
of Schools of Music. The central address was by Dean E. 
William Doty, College of Fine Arts, University of Texas. 

In addition to faculty, students, and alumni, there were 
present loyal and distinguished friends of the College and of 
the Fine Arts. 


The Harry H. Proffitt family will be missed this year on 
the campus. For the first time in seventeen years they will not 
be represented among the students. James, now a doctor 
practicing in Maryville, entered in 1934 and graduated in 1938; 
next came the twins in the Class of 1942 - Mary (now Mrs. 
Robert C. Wright of Maryville) and Margaret (now Mrs. 
Ben A. Cunningham of Rogersville, Tennessee); Elizabeth Jane 
graduated in 1946 and works in Woodbury, Tennessee; William 
graduated in 1949 and Robert last year. Mrs. Harry Proffitt 
was Leila Graham, '12 and Mr. Proffitt graduated from the 
old Preparatory Department. 


As part of the Fine Arts Festival connected with the ded- 
ication of the Fine Arts Center in May, there were held com- 
petitions in piano, voice and painting. These were for seniors 
in high school. At the close of the competitions awards were 
made to one competitor in each of these three fields. The win- 
ners were as follows: 

In Piano: Virginia L. Gross, Tyner High School, Chatta- 
nooga, Tennessee. 

In Voice: Sheila Blake Sutton, Chadbourn High School, 
North Carolina. 

In Art: Isabella Frances Gibbs, North Wilkesboro High 
School, North Carolina. 

The awards offered were $200 in Piano, $200 in Voice, 
and $100 in Art. If a winner should elect to attend Maryville 
College, the College announced that it would add a $100 

Sheila Sutton, winner of the competition in singing, is 
registered a; Maryville College. Her father is Algie Sutton who 
graduated in l'^29. 

Isabella Gibbs, winner in the art competition, was registered 
at Maryville College, but at the last minute was prevented by 
illness from entering this semester. 

Virginia Gross, winner of the piano competition, is at- 
tending a music conservatory elsewhere. 

The competitions will be held again in the spring of 
1952 and will be open to high school seniors. A fund of five 
hundred dollars each year for three years for these awards 
has been provided by friends of the College. 


The Ohio Valley Maryville College Club elected Charles 
L. Edgcmon, '!9, president last April. On July 20 the Club 
held their annual picnic at the home of Rev. and Mrs. Homer 
M. Noble, '06 (Varina Bayless, '06). If there are alumni in the 
Cincinnati area who are not on the Club's mailing list, get 
in touch with Mr. Edgemon at 1536 Union Trust Building. 

The Mary\iHf College Club of Philadelphia met on April 
21, 1951. There wore 37 present. Miss Clemmie J. Henr>', who 
was attending the D. A. R. Congress in Washington that week, 
was the chief speaker of the evening. The Icillowing ofliccrs were 
elected: John Magill, '39, president; Clyde Powell, '38, vice 
president; and Helena Farrar (Mrs. W. A.) Packard, '25, secre- 
tary-treasurer. Her address is 325 Vine Street, Hammnnton, 
New Jersey. The Club held their annual picnic at Knights 
Park, Ciillingswood, New Jersey on August 17 and Mr. Magill 
reported th;it although the attendance was not large they had 
an excellent time together.

The Lloyd family and luncheon guests at Momingside on one 
of the days of the Fine Arts Festival 

The Commencement season in May, 1951, was different 
from that of the ordinary year because the usual Commence- 
ment program was combined with a Fine Arts Festival and the 
dediciuion of the Fine Arts Center. 

The program may be considered to have begun with the 
annual breakfast for seniors given in two installments on 
May 8 and 9 by President and Mrs. Lloyd at their home. 

The Fine Arts Festival included a series of addresses on 
consecutive days covering the general fields of Music, Art, and 
Drama. On May 10, Mr. Malcolm Miller, Knoxville impresario, 
spoke concerning "Drama and Music Personalities I Have 
Known." On May 11, Dr. Paul Calvin Payne, General Secre- 
tary of the Presbyterian Board of Christian Education and 
Chairman of the Division of Christian Education of the 
National Council of Churches, spoke on "The Christian College 
and Tomorrow's World." On May 12, Mr. John Walker, 
Curator of the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D. C, 
spoke on "The Enjoyment of Art: Our Rights and Our Obli- 
gations." At the Alumni Dinner on May 12, Mr. Paul Schweik- 
her of Schweikher and Elting, architects of the Fine Arts Center, 
spoke on the architecture of the building. This was followed by 
an illustrated address by Mr. John Walker on "A Survey of 
American Painting." On May 13, Dr. E. William Doty, Dean 
of the College of Fine Arts at the University of Texas, spoke 
on "Music in Liberal Arts Education." 

In addition to these addresses, the Mary\'ille College 
Playhouse produced on two different evenings Shakespeare': 
"Much Ado About Nothing," and seniors majoring in music 
presented the annual senior music hour. There was a specia 
exhibition of paintings in the gallery of the Fine Arts Center 

On May 12 there were held competitions in Music anc" 
Art for high school seniors and graduates. Music competitor: 
came to Maryville to perform and were judged by person: 
prominent in the field of Music. Competitors in Art seni 
samples of their work, which were judged by prominent arl 
authorities. The three winners were selected and received 
scholarship awards as reported elsewhere in this bulletin. 

On Sunday. May 13, the Baccalaureate sermon wa« 
preached by President Lloyd on "Christian Culture," and the 
annual Commencement vesper sermon was preached by Dr. 
Paul Calvin Payne on "Mirrors or Windows." The Commence- 
ment address on May 16 was given by Dr. Stuaft Nye Hutchison. 
Bachelor degrees were conferred upon 168 seniors; four honorary 
degrees were conferred; and certificates were given to the 
living members of the Class of 1901. 

The dedication of the Fine Arts building was impressive 

and the whole Commencement program was significant and 


The speaker at the Founders Day Service on Saturday 
morning, October 27, at 9:45 a.m., will be the Rev. Dr. Eugene 
Carson Blake, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who in May 
was elected by the Presbyterian General Assembly to the office 
of Stated Clerk, to fill the vacancy caused by the death of 
Dr. William Barrow Pugh. 

Dr. Blake came to this work from Pasadena, California, 
where for the past eleven years he has been pastor of the large 
Presbyterian Church there. Although a comparatively young 
man of forty-five he has attained a reputation as one of the 
leading American preachers and was selected to preach the 
sermon in connection with the constituting of the National 
Council of Churches last year. 

Dr. Blake is a graduate of Princeton University and Prince- 
ton Theological Seminary, was a student in New College, 
Edinburgh, Scodand for a year and a teacher in Forman 
Christian College in India for a year before becoming assistant 
pastor of the Collegiate Church of St. Nicholas in New York 
City in 1932. In 1935 he became pastor of the First Presbyterian 
Church, Albany, New York, where he remained until he went 
to California. He has been a member of the Presbyterian Board 
of Christian Education, is a trustee of Occidental College in 
California, and holds other influential positions. 


Each year the art department, as an educational and 
cultural contribution to the whole campus and to the town 
as well, hangs a number of traveling exhibitions. The art 
gallery of the Fine Arts Center was built with this purpose in 
mind as well as to provide a place for a permanent collection. 
The first exhibit this year is a collection of prints of the French 
nineteenth century, lent by the National Gallery of Art, Wash- 
ington, D. C. It includes prints by such artists as Cezanne, 
Daumier, Delacroix, Matisse, Picasso, Renoir, Rodin, Toulouse- 
Lautrec, and Van Gogh. These prints will be on display until 
the end of October and all alumni here for Homecoming are 
urged to see them. 

Another exhibition will also be on display until about 
October 23. It is a collection of fourteen pieces by contemporary 
American sculptresses in aluminum, cast stone, terra cotta, and

The Class of 1926 had a fine twenty-fifth reunion, accord- 
ing to reports and observation. They began arriving on Friday 
afternoon and gathered at the Joe Gambles' home that evening. 
Saturday noon the group had lunch together at Chilhou'ee Inn, 
Walland, and of course Saturday night attended the Alumni 
Dinner. Afterward they again went to the Gambles. Katherine 
Franklin Harvey had planned a tea at her home just off the 
campus for the Class but unfortunately was ill during com- 
mencement week. On Sunday following the Baccalaureate 
Service the Gambles entertained the entire group and their

President and Mrs. Ralph W. Lloyd, their daughter Louise, 
and Miss Katharine C. Davies, Professor of Music at the 
College, were in Great Britain and Europe during the summer. 

Miss Davies and Louise sailed from New York for Liverpool 
on May 25, spent two weeks in England. Scotland, and France, 
and then settled down to study piano with Walter Frey at the 
Conservatory of Music in Zurich, Switzerland. Louise graduated 
Irom Maryville College in May with a major in piano. She 
had been a student of Miss Davies throughout her course. Later 
in the summer after touring Switzerland together, Louise 

went to Italy with Mrs. Lloyd, and Miss Davies went to 
Denmark, Holland, and Belgium with another friend. 

President and Mrs. Lloyd sailed from New York on the 
Queen Elizabeth July 7 and returned on the same ship 
August 27. Dr. Lloyd went abroad for the primary purpose of 
attending meetings of the World Council of Churches Central 
Committee and the World Presbyterian Alliance Executive 
Committee in Switzerland during two consecutive weeks in 
August. He and Mrs. Lloyd spent more than two weeks in 
the British Isles where he filled preaching appointments on 
three consecuti\e Sundays in London, Belfast, and Edinburgh. 
Between Sundays he held conferences with Presbyterian groups 
and individuals of England, Wales, Northern Ireland, and 
Scotland, in the name of the World Alliance and also in the 
interests of Anglo-American Church relations. 

He spent several days in Belgium visiting work of the 
Christian Missionary Church and several days in Geneva, 
Switzerland, where the headquarters of the World Council 
and the World Alliance are located. 

About the middle of August he was joined by Mrs. Lloyd, 
Louise, and Miss Da\ies, and all four flew to Berlin for five 
intensely interesting days there. Three of those days overlapped 
the period of the much publicised Communist youth rally. Dr. 
Lloyd preached on Sunday in the American Church in Berlin 
and in one of the U. S. army chapels. On August 21 they 
flew from Berlin to Paris, and on the 22nd boarded the Queen 
Elizabeth at Cherbourg. 


"The Messiah" will be given this year at three o'clock 
Sunday afternoon, December 9, in the Alumni Gymnasium. 
The annual Christmas Vespers will be on December 16 at 
the regular hour of seven o'clock. One of tjje— features of the 
Vespers each year is the Madrigal Singers. iThey are a small 
group who sing in the authentic malTfieiv' without direction 
or accompaniment and seated about a table. This was the 
custom in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries when madrigal 
singing was a popular form of musical entertainment. jThough 
the selections sung are not truly madrigals, they are-'arrange- 
ments of Christmas carols of that period and resemble the 
- style of the madrigal. 

In addition to these two college services, most of the 
student organizations have Christmas programs. 

Christmas holidays begin Friday noon, December 21, 
or earlier— for each student when he finishes his finals. The 
Second Semester opens and the holidays end with the chapel 
service Wednesday, January 16.
