VOL. LI October, 1952 No. 5 

Published quarterly by Maryville College. Entered May 24, 1904, at Maryville, Tennessee, as second- 
class mail matter. Acceptance for mailing at special rate of postage provided for in Section 1103, Act of 
October 3, 1947, authorized February 10, 1919. 


After graduation in 1931, Mr. Storey took a posi- 
tion with Proffitt's Department Store in Maryville, 
and was there from 1931 to 1944 as a department 
manager. From 1944 to 1946, for a period of two 
and a half years, he was employed by the Atomic- 
Energy Commission at Oak Ridge, where he was 
shift supervisor in the chemical division. Since 1946, 
he has been a department manager with McArthur's 
Department Store, in Maryville. His wife, Anna 
Rowe Templin, graduated in 1929. They have two 
children, Linda, ten, and Susan, six. 

Greetings to Maryville College Alumni Everywhere: 

It is with pleasure that I serve as your president during this year. The officers and committees 
of the Association held their first meeting on September 9th. Plans were made for the Homecoming 
and the publishing of this issue of the Bulletin. As you already know from a letter which went out 
earlier. Homecoming is set for Saturday, November 1st. It is hoped that ground will be broken for 
the new Samuel Tyndale Wilson Chapel on that date. Details for the Homecoming activities are list- 
ed elsewhere. I do want to urge all who possibly can to attend the Homecoming event. 

While for the second year the enrollment on the hill is below the usual S00, yet the spirit on the 
campus and in the town appears to me to be excellent. For one thing the football team has started 
better than it has for a couple of years. We old football players especially like that. As this Bulletin 
goes to press, the Highlanders have already won their opening game 39-0 over Hiwassee, and have 
played the strong State College from Jacksonville, Alabama, I can assure you there will be more pep 
and enthusiasm at Homecoming this year than there was last. 

Local alumni and friends of the College are really displaying a new brand of interest and enthu- 
siasm this fall. We hope you all catch the spirit. I think before the year is over you will see some de- 
finite goals accomplished through the efforts of alumni. Local alumni and businessmen put on a 
banquet for the entire football squad, coaches and other College personnel before the opening game. 
We feel is was a very successful occasion. Other meetings with President Lloyd and faculty members 
have produced favorable results. We hope to furnish you with further information during the year 
about definite accomplishments worked out with the College. At present, I can say there is a feeling 
of mutual cooperation between the College and its alumni. We are working together in trying to 
erect a score board on the football field, make plans to dedicate the new field, and secure band uni- 

Now the important thing is our Alumni Association doesn't have much money. From those of 
you who are out of town, we need your financial support. How about sitting down and writing out 
a check for at least $2.00 to your Alumni Association. That covers your dues for one year, then if 
you are one who failed to mail in your dues last year how about mailing the check for S4.00. Surely 
Maryville College means that much to you. Make the check to Maryville College Alumni Association. 
Maryville College, Maryville, Tennessee. 

I am looking forward to seeing many of you at Homecoming on November 1st. I appreciate the 
suggestions sent in from many of you and hope more of you will write me during the year. I shall do 
all I can for the best interest of Maryville College. 


President of Alumni Association 


President Lloyd's Page 

We shall be increasing our recruiting activity at the 
College. So much of the time in the past we have had more 
applicants than we could take that this is a rather new situation 
for us. The falling-off in liberal arts colleges is general, due 
in varying degrees to smaller high school classes ( due in turn 
to reduced birth rates in the depression years), to a trend 
toward technical and professional courses, to the aggressive- 
ness and resources of tax-supported universities and colleges, to 
high paying jobs available to high school graduates, and to the 
abnormal attendance during the war and after the war when 
the veterans flocked to college. New veterans are just begin- 
ning to enter college (we have about 30), and high school 
classes will begin to grow next year. 

3. We plan to break ground for the Chapel on Saturday 
morning, November 1, which is Founders and Homecoming 
Day. The ceremony will be part of the Founders Day Exer- 
cises, which are described on another page of this Bulletin. 
The architects are aiming to have the working drawings com- 
pleted in time to get contractors' bids into our hands long 
enough before November 1 to permit a decision as to a contract. 
There are, of course, two contingencies which might prevent 
our breaking ground as planned: (1) failure of the architects 
or contractors to meet this time schedule; (2) discovery that 
all bids are so much larger than our present estimates and our 
funds that we cannot award a contract without revision of the 
plan. But we are proceeding on the assumption that we will 
break ground on November 1. 

4. The Fall Meeting of the Directors will be held on 
October 31 and November 1. Members of the Board will parti- 
cipate in the Founders Day Exercises and the ground breaking. 
It promises to be a largely attended meeting, at which the 
present and future program of the College will be considered. 
The names of the Directors are printed each year in the catalog, 
but because a majority of the alumni do not see the catalog 
and because the personnel of the Directors changes some each 
year, we are printing on another page of this Bulletin the 
names and addresses of the thirty-five persons now serving as 
Directors ( there is one vacancy ) . We have lost two Directors 
by death during the past year— Rev. Dr. Joseph M. Broady and 
Rev. Chester Fred Leonard. Two new Directors were elected 
in June, 1952— Rev. Dr. Joseph J. Copeland, new Pastor of 
Second Presbyterian Church, Knoxville; and Rev. Dr. George 
H. Vick, '33, Pastor of First Presbyterian Church, Charleston, 
West Virginia. One third of the Directors are elected each year 
for a term of three years by the Synod of Mid-South of the 
Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. The Board of Directors is 
the controlling body of the College and is the legal corporation. 

May I extend cordial greetings to Maryville College 
alumni everywhere and ask them to keep their Alma Mater in 
their thoughts, plans, and prayers. 

Sincerely yours, 


Since this letter and the articles in the Bulletin were written, it has become apparent that the chapel plans will not be finished 
in time to break ground on Founders Day. However, the service with the theme announced will be held in preparation for 
the breaking of ground later in the year. 

1. The college year of 1952—1953 opened on September 
2 and is now well under way. The First Semester will close 
on December 19. The Second Semester will open on January 
14, 1953, and close on May 20. The attention of alumni should 
be called especially to two dates during the year— Saturday, 
November 1, which is Homecoming and Founders Day, and 
Saturday, May 16, which is Alumni Day with the specified 
class reunions and the annual Alumni Dinner and Meeting. 

2. The enrolment for the First Semester is 676, compared 
to 695 in 1951, and 828 in 1950. The new freshmen number 
223 (113 women and 110 men), which is 16 per cent more 
than entered a year ago, but approximately 20 per cent under 
the 300 which we have come to count "normal" for us. There 
are 20 fewer women freshmen than last year but 51 more men 
freshmen. The senior class this year represents the last of the 
postwar "inflation" and has 21 fewer than the senior class of 
last year. It numbers 131, which is about normal for the en- 
rolment of 800 which we maintained before the war and still 
desire to maintain. But the sophomore (176) and junior (129) 
classes are abnormally small. The smaller enrolment is not 
especially noticeable to an observer on the campus. But it will 
be noticeable in the year's finances. While in the aggregate 
each student always costs the College a good deal more than he 
pays, yet it costs almost as much to operate the College for 676 
students as for 800 students. And 800 students pay approxi- 
mately $30,000 more for tuition and nearly $45,000 more for 
room and board than do 676. We closed the last year with a 
small deficit; it is obvious that, unless we find some additional 
current gifts this year, the President and Directors have some- 
thing to worry about. And I repeat my appeal of last spring 
to alumni to commend Maryville College more than ever to 
qualified young people who will be ready for college next year 
(or the Second Semester of this year). 



Saturday, November 1 is the L952 Founders and Home- 
coming Day. 

The Founders Day program will lie in connection with 
the daily chapel service at 9:45 a.m. (mined from the usual 
8:00 a.m. chapel hour). 

The general theme will he "The Place of the Chapel on 
a Christian College Campus." The principal speaker will he 
the Rev. Dr. Roy Ewing Vale, Pastor of the Tabernacle Pres- 
byterian Church, Indianapolis, Indiana, and a Director of 
Maryville College for the past thirty-three years. Dr. Vale 
is an eminent church leader and was Moderator of the 1944 
General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. He 
is a former Pastor of Second Presbyterian Church, Knowille, 
Tennessee; of First Presbyterian Church, Oak Park, Illinois; 
and of Woodward Avenue Presbyterian Church, Detroit, 

If plans materialize as now projected, the principal event 
of Founders Day will be the formal breaking of ground for the 
Samuel Tyndale Wilson Chapel. 

The Directors of the College will be in session all day 
Friday and on Saturday morning. They will participate in 
the Founders Day events. 


The annual Homecoming events are in the afternoon and 
evening of the same day on which the Founders Day events 
are held in the morning. This year it is Saturday, November 1. 

The schedule for the day is found on the inside of the 
front cover of this issue. 

While alumni are welcome to "come home" for the whole 
day, the two special alumni events are in the late afternoon 
and evening. 

At 6:00 p.m. the annual Homecoming Barbecue will be 
held on the college baseball field. It will be in charge of the 
Alumni President, Carl M. Storey, '31, of Maryville. There 
will he long tables of food (at 50 cents) under the electric 
lights and by the bonfires; a table at which alumni may pay 
dues ( $2.00 a year ) ; and a table where football tickets may 
be purchased at the student rate of 75 cents. If it should rain, 
the Barbecue will move into the Alumni Gymnasium. 

The other evening event is the Homecoming football game 
at 8:00 p.m., on the Maryville College Football Field nearby. 
This is the third season the new field has been in use. The 
grass is gradually getting a start, but is still not fully rooted 
and spread. The use of the field in two rainstorms last year 
(remember Homecoming?) made it necessary practically to 

start over this year. The seating capacity of the permanent 
bleachers is 2,600 ( 1,100 on the west side where our students 
and a good many others sit; and 1,500 on the east side, where 
the reserved seats and the visiting school sections are located ) . 
All games, both at home and away, are being broadcast by 
Station WGAP of Maryville. 

The Homecoming game this year is with Georgetown 
College, a Baptist institution of Georgetown, Kentucky, which 
fields a strong team in the Kentucky conference each year. 


Two new Directors of Maryville College were elected in 
June, 1952, by the Synod of Mid-South, to fill vacancies caused 
by death. 

One is Rev. Dr. George H. Vick, Pastor of the First Pres- 
byterian Church, Charleston, West Virginia, a great church 
of more than 3,000 communicant members, affiliated with the 
Presbyterian Church in the US (Southern). Dr. Vick graduated 
at Maryville College in the Class of 1933, received the B. 1). 
degree from Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary in 
1936 and the Th.M. degree in 1937. He was awarded a 
fellowship at Louisville and spent a year in study at the Uni- 
versity of Edinburgh, Scotland. Prior to going to Charleston 
in 1945, he held pastorates in Owensboro, Kentucky, and St. 
Joseph, Missouri. 

The other new Director is Rev. Dr. Joseph J. Copeland. 
new Pastor of the Second Presbyterian Church, Knowille. 
Tennessee. The Second Church has a historic relationship to 
Maryville College, because in the year (1S19) that Dr. Isaac 
Anderson, then Pastor of New Providence Presbyterian Church 
of Maryville, became the founder and first President of Mary- 
ville College, he also began a ten-year service as the first Pastor 
of Second Church, Knowille. He continued as Pastor in Mary- 
ville until 1857 and merely carried the work at the College 
and in Knowille as extras. 

Dr. Cupel. mil was called From a pastorate in Denton, 
Texas, to Knowille to succeed Rev. Dr. Clifford E. Barbour, 
another Director ol the College, who is now President ol 
Western Theological Seminary, Pittsburgh. Dr. Copeland is a 
graduate ol Trinity University, in Texas, and ol McCormick 
Theological Seminary. 



Older alumni may be interested in seeing the registration 
schedule followed at the opening of the college year, younger 
alumni may like to see it again, and to all it will surely bring 
back many memories— of one kind or another. 

For new students the dormitories opened Monday after- 
noon, September 1, and the first meal was served at noon on 
Tuesday. Beginning early Tuesday morning, the YWCA and 
YMCA welcoming committees met trains and buses in Knox-

For many years a formal Convocation (a calling together) 
has been held, as listed in the schedule, at the regular chapel 
hour on the first day of classes. At this service a Convocation 
Address is given by the President. As students and faculty 
filed out from this year's service they were handed a mimeo- 
graphed page containing the following summary of President 
Lloyd's Convocation Address for 1952: 

What Seek Ye? 

(John 1:38) 

The word "seek" is from an Anglo-Saxon word which means 
to go in search of, to look for, to strive after. The question, 
" 'What seek ye' at college?" is of large importance because 
what you really search for you are likely to find. 
I. Are you seeking a college education?— or just a college de- 

gree? The main thing is the education 

get, not the 



degree or the prestige or the higher earning power. It is 
possible to accumulate enough credits to get a college de- 
gree and yet fail to get a college education. Every student 
should strive for both. 

Are you seeking Christian culture?— or just vocational train- 
ing? Both are essentials, but the demands of modern in- 
dustry and modern war have tended to throw an excessive 
emphasis on technical and professional training at the ex- 
pense of Christian culture. Yet the basic need of life is the 
Christian interpretation, character, and service which make 
up Christian culture. 

Are you seeking real friends— or just self interest? The 
Maryville College campus presents one of the best opportun- 
ities of your lifetime to make real friends. But you will 
miss them if you withdraw into your own shell, or if your 
conduct is irritating and self-centered, or if you try to use 
the friendship of others to promote yourself. 
IV. Are you seeking serious business at college?— or just a com- 
fortable time? A college course ought to be counted a seri- 
ous business; it takes 1/20 of your life if you live to be 
eighty. It offers unlimited possibilities for abundant living 
in the years ahead if it is taken as a truly serious business. 
These familiar and famous words of Jesus state one of the 
basic laws of life: "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and 
ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you; for every- 
one .... that seeketh findeth." 

Registering in the Personnel Office for classes

The Class of 1902 

Fifty-Year Certificates were awarded to the three living 
members of the Class of 1902. No one of them was able to be 
present, although all sent greetings. 

Helen Elaine Ervin is now Mrs. W. E. Roberts, of Las

At the 1952 Commencement last May, it was announced 
that John Herbert Kiger, Assistant Professor of History, was 
retiring from his place on the Maryville College faculty. 

Professor Kiger gradu- 
ated at Maryville College 
with cum laude rank in 
1919, and was a member of 
the Maryville faculty from 
January, 1924 until May, 
1952, a period of twenty- 
eight and a half years. Dur- 
ing the first twelve and a 
half years he taught Bible; 
during the past sixteen years 
he has taught History. 

Since his graduation from 
Maryville College, Mr. Kiger 
has studied at Bethany Col- 
lege, Oberlin College, Lane 
Theological Seminary ( two 
years ) , Duke University, 
University of North Carolina, 
and Ohio State University. 
He holds a master's degree from each of the last two. He 
taught three and a half years at high schools in Ohio and 
Tennessee before joining the Maryville faculty. 

His long connection with Maryville College has been 
marked by his careful and extensive academic preparation, his 
conscientious attention to his work, his loyalty, and his dedica- 
tion to a life of Christian service. 

Mr. and Mrs. Kiger are continuing to make their home in 
Maryville, where Mrs. Kiger is teaching in the county schools. 
Their daughter, Sara Jo, '49 ( now Mrs. Carl W. Wilson ) is in 
California, and their son, Alan, ex '50, is stationed in Norfolk.

At the pre-season community-college football dinner on 

September 15, President Lloyd gave a number of facts from a 
complete tabulation be has made of Maryville's sixty years of 
intercollegiate football. He has found written reports of foot- 
ball seasons back to L898, and lias gathered a few verbal and 
written facts about the seasons between 1892, when the first 
intercollegiate game was probably played by a Maryville team, 
and 1898. A picture of that first team, of which Kin Takahashi 
was coach and captain, was taken about 1893 or 1894 and has 
been published frequently. 

There was no team in 1898 or 1899, but President Lloyd 
pointed out that beginning with the season of 1900 (with a 
schedule of two games) Maryville College has played inter- 
collegiate football every year except those of 1901 and three 
years during World War II (19-13, 1944, 1945). 

The total number of games played from 1900 through 
1951 was 390. Of these Maryville won 199, lost 170, and tied 

There have been three seasons in which the team was 
undefeated in regular season play. In 1903, Maryville won all 
its 5 games. In 1915, there were 6 wins, no losses, and one 
tie. In 1946, the first year of football after World War II, 
Maryville won 9 and lost none in the regular season. This 
record brought an invitation to play in the "Tangerine Bowl" 
in Florida, where Maryville lost. 

There have been four seasons when only one game was 
lost (1902, 1921, 1941, 1947). In the first two of these, the 
loss was to the University of Tennessee. 

There have been four seasons when Maryville lost all its 
games (1900, 1904, 1950, 1951). 

Prior to the middle 1930's, Maryville's schedule usually 
included games with the larger universities of the South, gen- 
erally considered by the universities as "warm-up" or "breather" 
games. Often they were just that and resulted in one-sided 
scores. But occasionally, before the now familiar "big-time 
football" programs at these universities, Maryville teams won 
or came near winning. 

Here are some further details in the record compiled by 
President Lloyd: ( 1 ) Maryville College played the University 
of Tennessee 25 times between 1900 and 1936. Of these 25 
games Maryville won but two (1903 and 1906), tied one 
(1924), and lost the others. Some of the losses were by big 
scores (for example, 41-0 in 1928 and 60-0 in 1932.) But 
some of the losses were by close scores: in 1910 it was 
13-0, in 1918 it was 19-7, in 1921 it was 7-0, in 1926 it 
was 6-0, and in 1927, it was 7-0 again. (2) There were 
20 games with the University of Kentucky between 1907 
and 1938. We never succeeded in winning one, although 
the 1927 game was a tie (6-6), and the score was only 5-2 in 
1907, was 12-5 in 1910, was 19-0 in 1917, and was 13-6 in 
1925. After the tie in 1927, we lost 40-0 in 1929, and in the 
most recent game played (1938), the score was 46-7. (3) 
The record shows three early football games with the University 
of Alabama (in 1905, 1906, 1907), which Alabama won 17-0, 
6-0, and 17-0. (4 (Before World War I there were four 
games with Vanderbilt and there was another in 1929, all lost 
by one-sided scores. (5) The record shows one game with 
Georgia Tech (in 1906), with a tie score of 6-6; a game with 
Mississippi State in 1916 resulted in a tic score of 7-7. 

Before World War I Maryville played a rather large 
proportion of her games each year against these universities, 
usually for the practice benefit of the universities and some 
comparative financial benefit for Maryville's small athletic 
budget, though often with excessive physical damage. In those 
days fewer small colleges had teams. This continued with 

Tennessee and Kentucky into the 1930's, even after college 
teams became more available for competition, and with con- 
siderable sustained success on Maryville's part in the 1920*1. 
The development of "big-time football" at these universities 
has made games with smaller, unsubsidized teams like that at 
Maryville, something of the past only, but the very prominence 
of these "big" teams makes the record interesting. 

The percentage of wins against liberal arts colleges of 
comparable size has been overwhelmingly in Maryville's favor. 
For example, Maryville College has won 18, tied one, and lost 
only 11 of the 30 games played since 1903 with one of her 

strongest traditional rivals. 

The main values of intercollegiate athletics, however, are 
not in the win and loss columns. Maryville has won its share 
of games and it is hoped she can continue to do so, while at 
the same time she maintains her high academic standards and 
her no-subsidization policy. It is increasingly hard to win on 
this basis in a subsidizing athletic world, but the College's 
policy is controlled by die conviction that the loss of games is 
less serious than would be the loss of standards and principle.

Many alumni will recall the Artists Series of 1937-38 and 
the delightful concert given by the Trapp Family, then on 
their first American tour. Since then the Trapp Choir has 
become one of the most popular attractions in die concert 
world. They have been written up in Beader's Digest, The 
American Magazine, Time; and many newspapers have carried 
feature stories about them. They also have made many record- 
ings (some for Victor Bed Seal), and they have opened their 
own summer music camp in Vermont. 

The Trapp Family will again appear at Maryville College 
as the first number on the 1952-53 series. Monday evening, 
November 17. The second recital on the scries will be given 
January 23 by Luigi Silva, cellist. Mr. Silva, known as "The 

Pagannini of the Cello," was Formerly artist teacher of cello 

at the Eastman School of Music, but resigned lour years ago 
to devote more of his time to concertizing. He still docs some 
teaching ol vcr\ advanced students at Juilliard. and at present 
is engaged in re-editing the entire cello literature for G. 
Schirmer, music publisher. 

Season tickets, including reserved seats, are $3.50, and may

Floor Plan — First Level 

Seating estimated: Chapel main floor 805, balcony 315; 
Little Chapel 100. Chapel platform is 58 x 30 feet, with 
estimated seating capacity of 225. Seating of Eliza- 
beth R. Voorhees Chapel was 683 on main floor and 
124 in balcony. Size of Voorhees auditorium was ap- 
proximately 63x90 feet; of the new Chapel 74x120 



feet. The open Colonnade is 165 feet long and 15 feet 
wide, has reinforced concrete pillars, and is covered by 
extending the theater roof. The standard theater stage 
floor has trap doors to storage rooms below. Lines 
on drawing show two stage wagons and the cyclorama 

The New Chapel 

At this writing the architects are pushing through the work- 
ing drawings of the Chapel, trying to have them in time to per- 
mit the completion of contractors' bids before Founders Day. If 
this schedule holds, and if there is an acceptable bid, the plan 
is to hold ground-breaking ceremonies in connection with the 
Founders Day Exercises. 

The April issue of this Bulletin reported that Schweikher 
and Elting of Chicago and Barber and McMurry of Knoxville 
had been engaged as Associate Architects. In May, the Di- 
rectors approved the design and preliminary drawings. 

When the Elizabeth R. Voorhees Chapel, erected in 1906, 
was destroyed by fire on the night of March 26, 1947, efforts 
began to secure funds and to determine the kind of building 

The donors of the Fine Arts Center made possible an 
undreamed of replacement and expansion of music and art 
facilities. That left the Chapel and drama and speech facilities 
to be provided. 

The first studies assumed that the new chapel auditorium 
would be used also for plays, but gradually the conviction 
grew that there should be separate auditoriums and stages. 
The present plans are on that basis, although it means consider- 
ably more space and some more cost. The first thought was 
that the new Chapel should have white pillars like those of the 
old Chapel. But it was soon evident that the stone pillars 
required for a fireproof building would be very expensive and 
merely decorative. When the Fine Arts Center was built in 
contemporary style, it became necessary to take it into account 

in planning the style of the Chapel. So the conception has 
evolved into a design which is contemporary, original, simple, 
appropriate, comprehensive, and economical. 

The floor plans of the first and second levels with ex- 
planatory designations are reproduced below. There is no 
basement except under the theater stage area where there are 
rooms for storage, heating connections, and caretakers' quarters. 

The Samuel Tyndale Wilson Chapel is in fact, as the 
drawings show, an assembly of three buildings linked together 
around a large center court 60 by 45 feet in size. The entrances 
are through this center court. The entire length of the three 
parts is 285 feet (a football field is 300 feet) and the width 
is 94 feet. Over the theater stage is a standard stagehouse 
60 feet high, and beside the open court a 60-foot campanile 
which eventually will contain a peal of bells. 

The materials now contemplated are gray brick, reinforced 
concrete, steel, aluminum, glass, and a limited amount of wood. 
The center court will be enclosed on three sides by walls of 
glass. The stagehouse will be of brick, the campanile of steel. 

The location will be the general area of the old Chapel. 
The building will be set down the hill about 60 feet from the 
road which runs in front of Anderson and Baldwin Halls, and 
will extend across the area. The chapel end will be toward 
Carnegie Hall and the theater end toward the Fine Arts Center. 
The entrance to the center court will be at about the center 
of the old Chapel, in line with the walk which runs from 
Thaw Hall and the Book Store. 


Floor Plan — Second Level 

Although not indicated on the drawing, a standard stage house approximately 60 x 30 feet in size, designed for overhead handling 
of scenery, rises 60 feet above the theater stage floor. There is no seating balcony in the theater but there are rear gallery 
rooms for stage light control and for projection, film storage and rewinding. The center court has no roof. The proposed 
campanile and carillon is not shown but is designed to stand apart from the building, on the campus side, in line with the 
chapel narthex. 


The 77th series of the February Meetings will be 
held February 4-12, 1953. The leaders will be Rev. Howard 
Moody Morgan, D.D., of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the 
singing will be directed by Rev. Sidney E. Stringham, D.D., 
of St. Louis, 

This will be the fourth time that Dr. Morgan has been the 
leader (1937, 1941, 1949, 1953). It will be the thirtieth year 
for Dr. Stringham. He has missed only two years (of which 
last year was one) since he directed the singing thirty-two 
years ago. 

The morning services will be held in Alumni Gymnasium 
and the evening services in one of the churches. The Meetings 
have been held year by year, in times of peace and war, pros- 
perity and depression. Their value continues to be very great. 


The Choir records, announced in the Bulletin last April, 
arc now on sale at the College Book Store and may be ordered

Are you aware that the income-tax law was changed 
in July to increase, from 15 to 20 pel cent of an indivi- 
dual's adjusted gross income, the limit for income-tax 

deductions for individuals for contributions to charitable 

educational, religious, and Other similar organizations? 
This is applicable to taxable years beginning after 

December 31, 1951. And it means, ol course, that this 

year, when Maryville so needs i;ilts lor current expenses, 
for the Chapel, tor other improvements, vim can give 
a higher percentage of your income without paying tax 
on it.
