L Mwyvitte College i f BULLETIN < ■ 1 i r ' ii i • ^Hi ALUMNI ISSUE OCTOBER 1954 FOUNDERS AND HOMECOMING DAY 22nd Annual Observance SATURDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1954 ( Special dispatch to the ALUMNI NEWS ) Hurricane Hazel was unable to be present for Homecoming, but she made a few vicious side-swipes at the goings-on. The Parade was a chilly affair but it was the barbecue that really caught it. After six weeks of dry weather, just as about three hundred and fifty hardy souls were beginning to work on their steaming hot coffee and delicious barbecue, the heavens opened, the dry spell was over, and a lot of alumni caught the sniffles. It was fun, though, and nobody seemed to mind. The Founders' Day exercises in the new Chapel were extremely impressive. Mrs. J. R. Salsbury, of Kansas City, Mo., President of the Presbyterian Women's Organizations in the United States, addressed the convocation on the subject "What's in a Name." The day's festivities ended in a thrilling 14-14 tie football game under the lights with our arch rival, Emory and Henry. (The rain had stopped and the spectators by that time had nothing to fight but the shivering cold. ) THE SCHEDULE FOR THE DAY: 10:30 a.m.— Founders' Day Service (Samuel Tyndale Wilson Chapel) 3:00 p.m.— Homecoming Day Parade 5:45 p.m.— Homecoming Barbecue on the Baseball Field 8:00 p.m.— Football game under the lights with Emory and Henry 1955 COMMENCEMENT May 14, Saturday — Alumni Day May 15, Sunday — Baccalaureate Day May 16, Monday — Commencement Day OFFICERS OF THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 1954-1955 President Edwin J.

EDWIN J. BEST, PRESIDENT OF THE MARYVILLE COLLEGE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION Graduated from Maryville College in 1936, Mr. Best was associated witli the TVA for several years thereafter. He was granted leave of absence in 1941 to do graduate work at Harvard University. Tlie outbreak of World War II abruptly terminated his studies. He was in the Armed Forces from 1942-46 and in the recent Korean crisis was again called to active duty. He holds the rank of Major in the U. S. Army Reserves. With the exceptions noted, Mr. Best has been continuously in the employ of the TVA. He is a Budget Analyst in Knox- ville. In 1938, he married Leone Ann Brown, a classmate in the Class of '36. They have a son, Edwin J. Best, Jr. Dear Maryville College Alumnus: Now that Homecoming Day is over, the barbecue consumed, and the wild and woolly 14-14 tie with Emory and Henry is a matter of history, we alumni have a natural inclination to relax, awaiting an invita- tion to the Alumni banquet next spring. But I doubt that we really want a winter of Alumni inactivity, particularly when there is a job that we are uniquely qualified to perform. In other words, to paraphrase an old recruiting poster- MARYVILLE COLLEGE NEEDS YOU! In your home community, there are openings for part-time representatives of Maryville College. How many are needed in each community depends entirely upon how many Maryville graduates are in it. We need all of you, wherever you are, to sell Maryville College to parents and to prospective students. The Executive Committee of the Alumni Association has begun to lay plans for enlisting the support of all graduates in presenting Maryville College to young men and women who are beginning to think about choosing a college. We are certain that we can render a great service to our communities and our college by advertising Maryville. We put the question to you: Would you be willing to recommend Maryville College to a High School student with a choice to make? Maryville always needs more students. Will you heli) recruit them by serving as a local representative? A second challenge before us is the strengthening of our Alumni regional organizations. There are less than a dozen active Maryville College Clubs in the United States. More are needed. These clubs are ex- cellent extensions of Maryville College. We hope that during the year ahead more regional clubs can be organized and that all of them can develop active programs in the interest of student recruitment. Your siiuucstions will be of great value to the Executive Committee in the formulation ot detailed plans. When these plans are further developed, we shall tell you what you can do. In the meantime, let's all sell the College. With best wishes, Edwin J. Best President of Alumni Association Three President Lloyd's Page DEAR ALUMNI FRIENDS: ( 1 ) This Letter. For a good many years now the Alumni Issue of the Maryville College Bulletin, each fall and each spring, has granted me the privilege of writing for this page whatever I might wish to say to Maryville College alumni. It is a real privilege, both because communication between the president and the alumni of a college is necessary and natural, and because it is my good fortune to know most of you personally. Yet, to write a page which will be really valuable and fresh in view of all the other pages in this magazine is no easy privilege or assignment. There is no need to make it a news letter, for other pages carry news. There is no need for descriptions of special events and plans of the College because specific articles cover them. So, this page is designed for comments and underscorings on a few of the matters which are important at the time. (2) Moderatorial Schedules: Needless to say, the year between May, 1954 and May, 1955, is for me unlike any of its predecessors— or its successors. There has gradually de- veloped in the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. a tradition and a general expectation that produce an almost continuous speaking and conference schedule for the Moderator of the General Assembly. This very letter is being written in the Chicago Airport between planes enroute to Denver, Colorado. However, it is a year of rich personal experiences, and I sincerely pray that it will be a productive one for both the Church and the College. I deeply appreciate the confidence and good will of all who at the General Assembly in Detroit last May felt I might render a service of some value as Moderator this year. Perhaps when the year is over, I may write for Maryville alumni an informal story of the year. (3) An Ecumenical Summer would be an accurate title so far as my own experience is concerned. For the two weeks beginning July 25, I was not only a delegate but Chairman of the Program Committee at the 17th General Council of the World Presbyterian Alliance meeting in Princeton. Then, after four or five days back at the College, I was in Evanston for three weeks as a delegate to the Second Assembly of the World Council of Churches and as a member of the old and new Central Committees which met before and after the Assembly. These meetings constituted a great experience this year, as they did in 1948; but it is probably fortunate that they come only at intervals of five or six years. Of course, church summer assemblies began for me much earlier than July— the General Assemblies of the U.S.A. (Detroit) and the U.S. (Montreat) Churches, the Presbyterian Women's National Meeting at Purdue, and Synods of Mid-South, New Jersey, and North Carolina. At all of these one meets many courtesies and many personal friends of Maryville College. (4) Church Union also is a special concern this year. As all Presbyterian alumni will know, the General Assemblies of the three largest American Presbyterian bodies ( Presbyterian, U.S.A.; Presbyterian, U.S.; and United Presbyterian) approved a Plan of Union and sent it down to the presbyteries for vote. I have served as Chairman of the joint committee which pre- pared the plan. By spring the vote will be in. At the present time, we expect it to be favorable in the U.S.A. and U.P. Churches, and hope it may be so in the U.S. (Southern) Church, where there is organized opposition endeavoring to defeat it. (5) The New Enrolment Policy, of which I am writing on another page, has made a good start in practice; and I trust will have the encouragement and support of alumni. The ideals of freedom, justice, equal opportunity, and Christian brotherhood are part of the Maryville Spirit. (6) The Samuel Tyndale Wilson Chapel was dedicated on May 16, 1954, as described on another page, and is in daily use even though still not completely furnished. It is a magnificent building. I wish to appeal earnestly to all alumni to make the completing of the Chapel fund a priority until the task is finished. ( 7 ) Our Enrolment is not back to normal yet after the post-war inflation and deflation. You, who are alumni, are our principal recruiting staff; hence, I pass on this report. Heartiest good wishes. /\OUtp^ /CItzl_4^Lo ^^6j^c-7^ Four Here is a picture of an unusual group of church notables gathered together recently to honor Maryville College on the occasion of Homecoming Day celebration on the campus. A miniature "Who's Who" of the Presbyterian Church in the USA, the picture includes the following: Seated, left to right: MRS. F. A. GRIFFITTS, Maryville, Tenn., president of Union Presbyterial Society MRS. ROBERT D. ELLY, Birmingham, Ala., president of Synodical Society of Mid-South MRS. J. R. SALSBURY, Kansas City, Mo., president of Nation- al Council of Women's Organizations DR. RALPH WALDO LLOYD, Maryville, Tennessee, Mod- erator of the General Assembly MRS. W. VERNE BUCHANAN, New Philadelphia, Ohio, former president of the National Council of Women's Or- ganizations MRS. PAUL MOSER, New York City, former president of the National Council of Women's Organizations MR. D. W. PROFFITT, Maryville, Tenn., former president of the National Council of Presbyterian Men Standing, left to right: MISS CLARA JOE MINARIK, Tucson, Arizona, former presi- dent of the National Council of Westminster Fellowship MISS MARGARET SHANNON, New York City, Secretary of the Board of Foreign Missions, former contact secretary of the National Council of Women's Organizations MRS. D. W. PROFFITT, Maryville, Tenn., member of the Board of Christian Education and former member of the Executive Committee of the National Council of Women's Organizations REV. DR. DONALD A. SPENCER, Chattanooga, Tennessee, Moderator of the Synod of Mid-South REV. DR. JOSEPH J. COPELAND, Knoxville, Tennessee, member of the Board of Christian Education MR. JOE C. GAMBLE, Maryville, Tennessee, chairman of the Board of Directors of Maryville College Dr. Lloyd, class of 1915, is the President of Maryville College and a member of the Board of Directors. Mrs. Paul Moser, Mr. D. W. Proffitt, class of 1916, Miss Margaret Shan- non, Hon. LL.D, Maryville 1947, Dr. Donald A. Spencer, Dr. Joseph J. Copeland, and Mr. Joe C. Gamble, class of 1926 are also members of the Board of Directors of Maryville Col- lege. Mrs. F. A. Griffitts, class of 1932, is the wife of a professor at the college and Miss Clara Joe Minarik is a sopho- more at Maryville. Mrs. D. W. Proffitt was graduated in 1916. PRESIDENT LLOYD PRESBYTERIAN MODERATOR President Ralph W. Lloyd, of Maryville College, was elected Moderator of the 166th General Assembly of the Pres- byterian Church in the U.S.A. The Assembly met in Detroit, Michigan, May 20-26. His term of office is for one year or until his successor is elected. The next ( 167th ) General As- sembly will convene in Los Angeles on May 19, 1955, and a new Moderator will be elected on that day. The nominating and seconding speeches for Dr. Lloyd were made by two Maryville graduates - Mr. David W. Proffitt, '16, and Rev. Dr. Earle W. Crawford, '35. Dr. Lloyd had been officially endorsed by his own Presbytery of Union. The speaking and ecclesiastical demands are such as to fill a large proportion of his time, but he spends such days as he can at the College and keeps in touch while away. SYNOD OF MID SOUTH OBSERVES MARYVILLE COLLEGE DAY On Sunday, October 10, the two hundred and thirty-six churches in the five-state area comprising the Synod of Mid- South joined forces in observing Maryville College Day. Pastors in the various churches and speakers from the College spoke for the cause of the Christian College in America and for Maryville in particular. Impetus for the observance came from the action of the Presbyterian Women's Organizations in selecting the new dor- mitory for women as their project for Opportunity Giving for 1954. At the meeting of Synod in June, this program was endorsed and made the basis for the Maryville College Day appeal. It is impossible at this early date to evaluate the effects of the day's events. Newspapers all over the South carried the story of the tribute to Maryville and the reception given to guest speakers was very encouraging. Dr. Donald A. Spencer, pastor of the Second Presbyterian Church of Chattanooga and Moderator of the Synod of Mid- South, served with Dr. Joseph J. Copeland, pastor of the Second Presbyterian Church of Knoxville, as co-chairman. Maryville College Day was another significant event in the last twelve-month period that has produced an impressive number of outstanding honors for the College. THE FIFTY YEAR CLASS Five of the thirteen members of the Class of 1904 are living. Only two, however, were able to be present for their fifty-year reunion: Mrs. A. E. McCulloch (Freddie Goddard), who lives in Maryville and whose husband was long a leading jeweler here; and Dr. Henry J. Bassett, Professor of Latin at Maryville College from 1905 to 1920 and Professor at South- western, Memphis, at the time of his retirement a few years ago. Dr. Bassett is not well but was able to appear briefly at the Graduation Exercises to receive his Fifty-Year Certificate. The other three living members of the Class arc Mr. Marion Bertram Hunter, of Warsaw, New York; Miss Grace Eleanor McReynolds, of Maryville; and Colonel Joseph Ben- jamin Pate, of Atlanta. Five THE 1954 COMMENCEMENT The 1954 Commencement will be remembered in the years to come as the first in the Samuel Tyndale Wilson Chapel. Daily chapel had been held in the chapel auditorium since the February Meetings, but the other parts of the build- ing had not been completed. By working around the clock after the workmen moved out, the stage crew and electricians were ready for the Commencement Play on Friday night of Commencement Week. The play chosen to inaugurate the theater and to fit into the dedication program of the building was a play with a religious theme, "Family Portrait," a story of the family of Jesus. It was movingly presented, and the theater itself was very exciting. The other events of Commencement Week took place in the chapel auditorium — Senior Class Chapel, the Baccalaure- ate Service, Commencement Vespers, and the Graduation Exercises. The Class of 1954 numbers 118; a report of their present activities is given elsewhere in this issue. President Lloyd's Baccalaureate Sermon theme was "En- large the Place of Your Tent" (Isaiah 54:2). The Commence- ment Address was given by President Robert Worth Frank of McCormick Theological Seminary, Chicago, on the theme: "On Being Mature." The Commencement Vesper Sermon on Bac- calaureate Sunday was preached by Rev. Dr. John A. Gates, formerly on the Maryville faculty, now Professor of Philosophy and Bible at Westminster College, Fulton, Missouri, whose son David was in the graduating class. His theme was "Where Is the Wise Man?" S* \ hdiM Kinsler Lamont Smith The honorary degree of Doctor of Divinity was awarded to three alumni: Francis Kinsler, '25, Presbyterian missionary in Korea. Robert James Lamont, '41, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, Pittsburgh, Pa., and member of the General Council of the Presbyterian Church in the USA. James Rhodes Smith, '35, one time Executive Secretary of the Alumni Association and now pastor of Graystone Presby- terian Church, Knoxville. The Chapel proved to be excellent for these college events. The stage was designed to be very large so that at Commence- ment there would be room for the faculty and choir without the uncomfortable crowding of the old Chapel. The auditorium seats 1150, exclusive of those on the platform, which means that for most events everyone who comes can be accom- modated. And the outdoor court, colonnade, and terrace are ideal for people to gather after such an event as the Graduation Exercises - for greeting old friends, visiting with acquaintances, picture taking, "milling around." The first wedding in the new building was held Com- mencement afternoon in the Little Chapel, even though the room was not finished or furnished. The Little Chapel, which will seat about 75, was planned especially for worship services of groups too small for the large chapel, for private devotions, weddings, and the like. CLASS REUNIONS - 1954 The Class of 1924 More than half of the members of the class of 1924 at- tended the thirty-year reunion. Those present were: Thelma Adair Gander, Paul "Army" Armstrong, Mary Broady Heald, Grace Brown Ross, Hugh Clabough, Floyd Corry, Hugh Coulter, Cecil Crow, Dorothy Dickerson, Dollie Enoch John- ston, Tom Greenlee, John Hall, Jim Hardin, Lois Alice Johnson Sloan, Sarah Kiskadden Howell, Mason Mann, Margaret Mc- Kinney Rives, Malcolm Miles, John Nuchols, "Bumpous" Owens, Christine Painter Richmond, Charles Partee, Verton Queener, Alma Regnemer Harmon, Mary Robison Bevan, Bertha Russell, Lynn Russell Copeland, Irene Sharp Burchfield, Guy Sneed, Vashti Thweatt Taylor, Cecil Timblin, Charles and Blanche ( Moore ) Wathen. All were housed in a motel near the campus, practically taking it over. On Friday night Jim Hardin brought a national champion Drum and Bugle Corps down from Greeneville to play in our honor. On Saturday there was luncheon at Kinsel Springs - "Sun- shine" in our day. In the evening we were together at the Alumni banquet; "Army" was in good form in his response. After the banquet we gathered at the home of Joe Gamble, '26, for more "talk". On Sunday, after attending the Baccalaureate service, we had a picnic lunch in the Y. W. rooms in Thaw Hall. There was great fellowship and good fun on all these occasions. Many letters came from those who could not be with us, and these were read at our Saturday luncheon. Three members of the class of '54 were children of mem- bers of our class: Mary James Bevan, Ann Taylor, and Hazel Timblin. Quite a few were bragging about grandchildren. Mason Mann is the "groom" of the class, having been married only four years. Floyd Corry is certainly the most distin- guished looking '24er. We are already making plans for another reunion in 19.59. Verton Queener The Class of 1929 On May 15, 1954 some forty members of the Class of '29 officially met on the Maryville Campus to celebrate the twenty- fifth anniversary of our graduation. Some of us came for the first time since that event and others had been more or less regular attendants through the years. Most of us congregated in front of the new chapel soon after the Chapel hour and renewed acquaintances and remi- nisced with "Brownie" who always makes us forget that so many years have intervened since certain events transpired (which we shall not mention here). About thirty-nine of our ninety-eight put in an appearance in the course of the day. At noon we were the guests of Sena ( McCurry ) and Earl Wilkinson at an outdoor picnic lunch. All of the faculty who were at the College during our schooldays were special guests and with our families made a total of seventy-five, at least. We spent the afternoon visiting familiar places and calling on old friends in the vicinity until four o'clock when we were invited by Edna McCamy Lyle and Sarah Moore Traylor to an informal tea at Edna's home where we continued the pro- cess of "catching up" on the news of what various people were doing who could not be with us. We repaired to Pearsons Dining-room where in the course of the program of the evening our most able president, Dr. Florian Hopkins, introduced: Mary Cohron Boswell, Anna Lou Miller McAmis, Betty Jane Sharp Harold, Algie Sutton, David and Ruth Weese Marston, Beatrice Green, Mary Fitzgerald Six Kennedy, Alice Pratt, James Cox, Rev. Albert Tull, Eugene Gabbard, Ada Belle Campbell Howard, Rugh McClelland, Vir- ginia Sting Thomas, Roger and Ruth Rusk, Ralph Lawson, Fan- cher Smart! C.alhraith, Ruth Lockmiller Snyder, Billy Craw- ford, Walter Headrick, Ben Prince, Mary Louisa Rodgcrs, Evelyn Sherard Roe, Vlnny Smithson New, Mildred Taylor Harsh- barger, Norman and Jane Sherrill Vaughn, Arta ("Pud") Wat- kins Hall, Earl Wilkinson, Walter Williams, Inez Burns, Nellie Caldwell Morton, Earl Keller, Edna McCamy Lyle, Sarah Moore Traylor, and Anna Rowe Templin Storey. After the Banquet we adjourned to the lounge in the new (to us at least) Fine Arts Center, where fortified by coffee served by Mr. and Mrs. Harold Bird, Inez Burns, and Mr. and Mrs. Carl Storey, we visited to a late hour since most of us would not be able to get together again until a later "reunion" date. Inez Burns Other Class Reunions The Class of 1934 at their twentieth reunion: First row, I. to r. — Maisie Thomas Tunnell, Maurine Willocks Sweitzer, Clifford Withers Walker, Ercelle Hunter Snyder Second row — Lucille Swafford Johnson, Mary Sloane Welsh, Jasmine Orr, Helen Mahan Payne, Katherine Wayland, Thelma lies Dodd, Herbert Dodd Third row — Mrs. Herbert P. Dunning, Ernest Coldwell, Frances Massey, Viola Lightfoot, Margaret Edith Cooley LeQuire Back row — E. E. McCurry, T. Madison Byar, Mrs. E. E. McCurry, Herbert P. Dunning, Randolph Shields, Arta Grace Hope Shields, Mrs. Andrew Alexander, Andrew L. Alexander The class of 1934 had twenty members present for its twenty-year reunion. They enjoyed a picnic lunch at Willard House (formerly the President's Home) on the campus, where Frances Massey, Dean of Women and member of the class, lives. Thelma lies Dodd was chairman of arrangements for the reunion. The class of 1939 had a picnic at the home of Sara Fay Kittrell Schwam; Mary Jo Husk was co-chairman or arrange- ments. The class of 1944 met for luncheon at Niles Kerry Grill, then toured the new Chapel and Fine Arts buildings, and later gathered at the home of Dorothy ( Credig ) and Al Dockter. The class of 1949 celebrated the fifth anniversary of its graduation with a luncheon at the Niles Ferry Grill. Vera ( Lusk ) and Bill Proffitt were co-chairmen of arrangements. CLASS REUNIONS IN 1955 The classes scheduled for reunions in May, 1955 are: 1905, 1915, 1925, 1930, 1935, 1940, 1945, and 1950. The Alumni Office will be glad to assist the president (or someone appointed as reunion chairman ) of each of these classes by providing a mailing list of the class. It has been observed that early planning is essential to a successful reunion. NEW ADMISSIONS PRACTICE On August 11, 1954, Maryville College released to the press a statement which began as follows: "In the August issue of the Maryville College Bulletin, just mailed to students and faculty, President Ralph W. Lloyd makes the following announcement of enrollment policy: "The Directors of Maryville College have taken action reestablishing the College's policy of accepting qualified students without re- gard to race and color'." In our first semester under this re-established policy, there are six Negro students enrolled, four girls and two boys, with one girl and one boy living in the dormitories. Their integra- tion into the life and work of the campus has gone forward smoothly. Students of many races and countries have attended Mary- ville College in all periods of its long history, and prior to 1901 some of these were of the Negro race. In 1901, however, the State of Tennessee, which had long had certain segregation laws touching public schools, enacted additional legislation making it illegal, under penalty of fine and imprisonment, for "white and colored persons (of African descent) to attend the same school, academy, college, or other place of learning" or for anyone to allow them to do so or to instruct them to- gether. Seventeen states and the District of Columbia have had general school segregation laws, of which the Tennessee statute, enacted on March 13, 1901, is one of the most inclusive and rigid. On May 28, 1901, the Directors of Maryville College, forced to decide whether the College should enroll white or Negro students, took the following action: "In compliance with the present law of the State, it is voted that from September 1, 1901, only white (non-Negro) students be admitted to Maryville College." Since a choice had to be made, this was, of course, the inevitable one, for the ratio of white to Negro students had always been more than twenty to one. Only now, after a half century, are institutions in Ten- nessee freed from this restriction. During the past decade, U.S. Supreme Court decisions affecting several states, including Tennessee, required various tax-supported graduate and pro- fessional schools to accept Negro as well as white students, and one state, Kentucky, relaxed its law; but the first general decision toward the ending of compulsory segregation in schools was that of May 17, 1954. The President of the College, who is the writer of this report, and the Chairman of the Board of Directors, Attorney- Joe C. Gamble ( '26 ) , compiled information about the laws, the history of Maryville College, and the actions of important church and educational bodies, and transmitted a summary of it to each Director of the College, under authorization and in- struction given by the Directors at their Spring Meeting on May 19, two days after the unanimous decision of the U.S. Supreme Court. With this data we sent a list of ten "Deter- mining Factors" (pro and con), and recommended the action reported at the beginning of this article. All thirty-five Direc- tors participated in the vote which Overwhelmingly adopted the recommendation. I think the basic grounds for the action were the opinion that it is now legal, the conviction that it is right and in accord with the will of Christ, and tin- belief that a church-related Christian college should lead rather than follow the tax-sup- ported colleges. It was fully realized by all that admitting Negro students would he criticized by many good people, including some alumni; but we are confident that most who consider all the (acts will respect the sincerity ami informed judgment of Mary- ville's distinguished Board of Directors and able Faculty. So far we have heard far more approval than disapproval. Seven This prompt and courageous step by Maryville College is in harmony with declarations of principle and policy by the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. and of its Synod of Mid-South (to which the College is organically related); by the General Convention of the Southern Baptist Church; by the National Council of Churches; by the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S. (Southern); by the Holston Conference of the Methodist Church (in whose bounds Maryville is located); and all other principal church bodies which have met since the Supreme Court's decision. All have voted approval of that decision and called on institu- tions and churches to eliminate discrimination and segregation based on race or color. - Ralph Waldo Lloyd MARRIAGES Sophia Masterson, '28, to Henderson M.

Eight ■ .fii * rfi' FOOTBALL REVUE Highly explosive, powder-keg football has characterized the pigskin fortunes of the scrappy Highlander eleven this fall. The team can boast of no undefeated, untied season, but it has given a good account of itself in every game and the contests have all been the type that leaves the spectators limp and weary, with the possible exception of the opening game with Hiwassee. Ushering in Coach Honaker's thirty-fourth year at the helm of the Maryville football fortunes, the Scotties took the measure of Hiwassee by a 26-6 score. Coached by Howard Davis, former Maryville College football luminary, now in his first year of coaching at the Madisonville institution, Hiwassee gave a good account of themselves before bowing to a lusty second-half Highlander attack. The following week, powerful Jacksonville (Ala.) State piled up a 14-0 first-half lead on the Scotties and held off a number of Maryville threats in the second half, winning by the 14-0 margin. The Alabamans spoiled Coach Honaker's sixty- sixth birthday celebration. He is now the dean of active Ameri- can college football coaches in point of length of service. A spine-tingling 12-7 victory over Centre put the Scotties back on the right side of the ledger. In a Frank Merriwell finish, the Highlanders scored the winning touchdown in the last 35 seconds of the game. East Tennessee State turned the tables in the next game by winning out in the last half in a 20-14 thriller. The Homecoming game with Emory and Henry was an- other dog-fight, ending in a 14-14 tie. This was a real hair- raiser, with undefeated Emory and Henry blocking a kick with less than two minutes to go and working the ball to the two- yard line with less than a minute remaining, and the fighting Scotties taking over in the shadow of the goal-line just as the final whistle blew. The schedule for the season: Sept. 18 - Maryville 26 Hiwassee 6 Sept. 25- - Maryville Jacksonville State 14 Oct. 2 — Maryville 12 Centre 7 Oct. 9 — Maryville 14 East Tenn.

TWENTY-FIVE YEAR CLUB Two faculty members joined the "twenty-five year" group this fall and were re- cognized at the first meeting of the Faculty Club on Oc- tober 4. Bonnie Hudson Brown is a graduate of Maryville College in the Class of 1927, and holds an M.A. degree from the University of Ten- nessee. Between high school and college she taught three years and after graduation from college she taught a year at Alpine High School, Tennessee, and a year at the University of Tennessee as a teaching fellow in botany. In September, 1929, she joined the biology faculty at Maryville College. In 19.36 she married Rev. George E. Brown, and since then has become more and more active in the life of the churches of this Presbytery. By coincidence, Mrs. Brown was the speaker at the Faculty Club meeting on October 4. She gave a talk illus- trated with beautiful slides of the flowers of the Great Smoky Mountains Park. Miss Jessie Eleanor Mc- Corkle completed twenty- five years of service in the Treasurer's Office in Sep- tember. She was born in Knox- ville and attended school there. Before coming to the College, she was secretary and bookkeeper for sixteen years in two department stores at Johnson City, Ten- nessee, and for three years at Lees-McRae College in North Carolina. She has reached the retirement age established by Maryville College, but at the request of the College has thus far continued her work as As- sistant in the Treasurer's Of- Mits McCorkla fice.

For the first time in many years, Maryville College is now officially represented by a Public Relations officer. With a wealth of experience in secondary school guidance and ad- ministration and an invaluable knowledge of the small college field, it will be his purpose to help Maryville College attain the lofty position which it richly deserves. You can be sure that if enthusiasm and energy pay off, the College on the Hill will see some fireworks. Actually, tin size of the spark generated will depend largely upon you. As Mr. Best indicates on his page, it will take all the alumni working together to achieve the results desired. The Public Relations program will be based upon three important factors: 1. Alumni interest: greater spirit, the development of regional alumni representatives to counsel with pro- spective students as a sort of Alumni Associate, acti- vation of more Alumni Clubs, contribution of time and energy as well as material resources to create the Maryville of the Future. 2. Student recruitment: an energetic program of visits to secondary schools, church groups, alumni clubs, to pre- sent to prospective students the Maryville Plan of Edu- cation. The kick-off in this campaign comes the first week in November when Florida West Coast com- munities will be visited. 3. Church support through pastors, particularly the many Maryville alumni. One pastor, an alumnus, brought five young women to college in September. That is the spirit we want to encourage. Your hearty cooperation is solicited. If you will serve as a regional representative, please write to James W. Hampton, Public Relations Office. If you have ideas, send them in. Think, plan, talk, write Maryville! NEW BOOK BY DR. HUNTER Shakspcre and Common Sense by Edwin R. Hunter is to appear this fall. It can perhaps be best summarized in the words of the publisher: "A teacher of literature for main years. the author has become, perforce, an interpreter of the pla> 5 ol Shakspere, which is one of his principal interests. He docs not for a moment seek to minimize the richness and even the profundity of much that there is in Shakspere. He is simply one ol tin- main, who through familiarity and repeated reading and pondering, have become increasingly nun meed of the great playwright's insight, humanity and common Sense. It is around the growing realization ol the element of common sense in his works and workmanship that the author's special phi- losophy ol interpretation has gathered and crystallized." The bunk in. is be ordered from the Christopher Publishing House. 111(1 Columbus \\enuc. Boston 20. Massachusetts, at lour dollars the copy. Eleven Dr. Lloyd receiving honorary doctor's degree last August from Lake Forest College on campus of that institution DR. LLOYD RECEIVES HONORARY DEGREE In a most unusual ceremony, Dr. Ralph Waldo Lloyd, the President of Maryville College and Moderator of the General Assembly, was honored last August at a special convocation at Lake Forest College, Lake Forest, Illinois. The occasion was in connection with the second assembly of the World Council of Churches held in Evanston, Illinois. Six leading Presbyterian colleges each awarded an honorary degree to a Presbyterian or Reformed church leader attending the World Council sessions. Dr. Lloyd was the only American thus honored. He received an honorary doctor's degree from Lake Forest College, on whose campus the convocation was held. Dr. Lloyd received further honors when he was chosen as one of the members of the Central Committee of the World Council of Churches. He is thus one of a select world group of ninety members and one of a smaller group of twenty lead- ing American churchmen and educational leaders elected to the Committee. Maryville College awarded an honorary doctor's degree to the Rev. Max Philippe Dominice, a leading pastor of Geneva, Switzerland. He is chairman of the European Area of the World Presbyterian Alliance. Rev. Max Philippe Dominice, pastor of Geneva, Switzerland, who received honor- ary doctor's degree from Maryville Col- lege Twelve ALUMNI CLUBS The Chicago Alumni Club had an excellent meeting and evening garden supper at the Horace Dawson's, 2609 Lincoln Street, in Evanston, Illinois, on August 29th. There were approximately seventy persons in attendance. Alumni from New York to California were present because of the timing of the meeting to coincide with the sessions of the World Council of Churches in Evanston. Officers elected for the ensuing year were as follows: Dr. George B. Callahan, president (831 N. Sheridan Rd., Wauke- gan, 111.); Dewey M. Beck, secretary, (E. Crystal Lake Ave., Crystal Lake, 111.). The Cincinnati Alumni Club had a reunion the last week in May on the occasion of the visit of the Maryville College Vesper Choir to the Kennedy Heights Presbyterian Church in Cincinnati. Rev. Raymond W. Swartzback wrote to the Alumni office and notified the ALUMNI NEWS Editor of the meeting, but details have not as yet been received. The arrangements for the Cincinnati reunion were in charge of Herbert Hunt. The National Capital Maryville College Club met for a picnic in Rock Creek Park, Grove 25, on Saturday, May 22, 1954. There was a good attendance and many future Mary- villians came with their dads and mothers. Homer McCann brought a barrel of lemonade and there was a roaring fire where hot dogs and hamburgers sizzled de- lightfully. There was a brief business meeting after the picnic and William C. Crowe, the president of the club, told of his visit to the campus, bringing back many memories of the good old days on the Hill. It was voted unanimously to send a telegram of congratu- lation to Dr. Lloyd, who had just been made Moderator of the General Assembly. The following officers were elected for the coming year: President: John Tope, '33; vice president, Carol Corbett Jackson, '51; and secretary-treasurer, Lois Ann Holzworth, '41. On April 27, forty-six Merry Villians of the New York City area got together for a dinner at the West Side Y.M.C.A. Misti Smith was elected president for the ensuing year, suc- ceeding James Barr, who had moved to Oneida. Lavinia Rodriguez was elected secretary-treasurer. Dr. Lloyd was delayed by plane connections but arrived shortly after the business meeting was over. Classes represented ranged from 1896 to 1953, with seven of the "brand new cubs" present. YOU CAN BE PROUD - That Maryville College is beginning its one hundred and thirty- sixth year of Christian service That Maryville College has a President so widely honored and deeply respected - a Maryville alumnus, of course That Maryville College has been recognized by the Presbyterian Women's Organizations who have specified the new dorm- itory for women as an object for Opportunity Giving for 1954 That Maryville College has a campus that is among the most beautiful in the United States That Maryville College has a Vesper Choir which is one of the most magnificent organizations of its kind in the nation That Maryville College has a faculty with men and women of God, people like Dr. Hunter, Dr. Orr, Mrs. L. A. Black, with whom those all too few years of association are a never-to-be-forgotten experience That Maryville College has the courage to believe that Jesus Christ came to save all men That YOU are an alumnus of one of America's truly great Christian colleges (These random thoughts for Maryville College alumni were inspired by the impressive exercises at the Founders' Day services, Saturday, October 16) DEDICATION OF NEW CHAPEL The beautiful new Samuel Tyndale Wilson Chapel was formally dedicated on Baccalaureate Sunday, May 16, 1954. Hundreds of alumni, students, and other friends of the college witnessed the impressive ceremony. Copies of the program were sent to all alumni in a recent communication. Of particular interest to the alumni of Maryville College, especially those who remember Dr. Wilson and his family personally, was the presence at the dedicatory service of three of his six children. Mrs. Howard B. Phillips (Ruth Wilson, Class of 1909), of Flandreau, South Dakota, who as the oldest gave the address of response; Mrs. Clyde T. Murray ( Olive Wilson, Class of 1913), of Maryville; and Mrs. Ben E. Watkins (Mary Wilson, Class of 1918), of El Paso, Texas. With them were Rev. Dr. Phillips (Class of 1909); Mr. Murray (ex 1912, currently a Director of the College); Rev. Carl C. Murray, (Class of 1948) the son of Mr. and Mrs. Clyde T. Murray; his wife, the former Ernestine Harrison (ex. 1947); and Mrs. John A. Griffiths (Doris Murray, Class of 1943) of Altadena, California, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clyde T. Murray. Dr. Wilson's other three children, (Howard, Class of 1915, now in Florida, Lois, Class of 1916, now in the mission field in Lebanon, and Lamar, Class of 1921, now in California ) were unable to be present but sent greetings and appreciation. A message was read from the family of Elizabeth R. Voor- hees, for whom the old chapel was named, who had approved the plan to name the new Chapel for Dr. Wilson. PRESENT STATUS OF NEW CHAPEL The new chapel auditorium has been in use since the February Meetings of last year. The theater has been in use since Commencement time. The classrooms and choir rooms have been in use since September first. And the whole build- ing was formally dedicated on May 16, 1954. But the Samuel Tyndale Wilson Chapel is still incomplete. The fixed seats are in both the large chapel auditorium and the theater and most of the extensive theater stage and lighting equipment is installed. But there is as yet no perma- nent furniture for the chapel auditorium platform, for the Little Chapel, or for the classrooms, offices, or studios. These will be installed gradually. The chapel platform and Little Chapel furniture is being specially designed. There are a number of light fixtures and other equipment yet to be in- stalled. First steps have been taken to have an organ built, but they have been halted for the present by lack of funds. The tree in the Chapel Court will be transplanted when cold weather comes. Grass has made a good start around the new building in spite of the exceedingly dry weather in late sum- mer and early fall. Yes, the building still lacks a considerable number of things, but it is occupied daily and is a magnificent structure with an amazing variety of uses. When more complete, pictures will be taken and made available. All pictures so far show the incompleted status of the building. All should bear in mind that the funds also are incomplete. Before the building and furnishings arc paid for a large sum must be secured. Toward the cost of approximately $600,000 there has been received about $400,000, with the other $200,000 yet to be found. Every gift is valuable.

The Chapel, which holds twelve hundred persons com- fortably, will lend itself admirably to the 1954-5 Artists Series. The most impressive array of distinguished talent to be pre- sented in many years will appear during the present season. Featured artists and the dates for their appearances are as follows: Nov. 2 - Nelson and Neal, popular piano team which has made previous visits to the campus Nov. 18 - Cornelia Otis Skinner, famous writer and ac- tress in a program of character sketches, mono- logues and impersonations March 10 - The Original Don Cossack Male Chorus, Serge Jaroff, conductor April 14 - St. Louis Sinfonietta, small orchestra, Paul Schreiber, conductor The Artists Series was reorganized this year to include the community with a committee made up of interested citizens in addition to the College Faculty and student members. This is the first year that the Artists Series has functioned under such joint participation. NEW WOMEN'S DORMITORY From time to time it has been reported to alumni that progress was being made in building a fund for a new women's dormitory, to make possible turning Memorial back to the men and at the same time increasing the facilities for women. As explained in the past two issues of this Alumni Issue of the Bulletin, during the year 1954 this Maryville College dormitory is a special Christian Education object for the Op- portunity Giving of Presbyterian women. Gifts have been coming to be added to the funds already in hand. It will not be known until sometime after January how much will be given by Presbyterian women. Meanwhile, the Synod of Mid-South observed Maryville College Day on October 10, with the dormitory fund parti- cularly in mind. Some churches took offerings, others plan to do so later, and various ones will contribute to the fund in some other way. Schweikher and Elting, of Chicago and New Haven, and Barber and McMurry, of Knoxville, who were associated Archi- tects for the new Chapel, are being engaged to design and direct the building of the dormitory and have started sketches. It is possible that construction may be started next summer. The location to be used is the high ridge, where the Lamar House formerly stood, somewhat back of Pearsons and Willard (formerly the President's house). We would like to remind you that it takes about four weeks from the time material is as- sembled until it is printed and distributed to alumni. If you don't see an item you sent in therefore, it is probably because it was received too late for use in this issue.

We are listing below some of his speaking appoint- ments beginning with Sunday, October 31, in the thought that alumni might like to know when he is to be in their area. He hopes to see alumni as he travels over the country and will be very glad if they will make themselves known to him, as in most cases his time in a city is so tightly scheduled that he cannot look up anyone. These Moderatorial appointments are made through the Stated Clerk's office in Philadelphia. October 31 - November 3 Synod of Illinois October 31 - Oak Park, First Church November 1 - Rock Island November 2 - Mattoon November 3 - Murphysboro, one of Dr. Lloyd's former pastorates November 7 - Birmingham, Michigan, First Church November 8 - Newburgh, New York, Calvary Church November 14 - Newark, New Jersey, Roseville Church November 15 - Bloomfield College November 16 - Princeton Seminary November 21 - Hyattsville, Maryland November 27 to December 3 - National Council of Churches, Boston December 4-5 - New England Churches December 6 - Presbytery of Newark December 7 - Presbytery of Detroit December 10 - Presbyterian Men of Greater Cincinnati December 12 - Akron, Ohio, Westminster Church December 13 - Presbytery of Cleveland December 19 - Falls Church, Virginia December 21 - Maryville, Junior Chilhowee Club January 3 ( probably )- Washington, D. C, National Church ( annual Communion Service at opening of Congress ) January 14-25 - Synod of California January 14-19 - Presbytery of Los Angeles January 20-21 - Presbytery of San Joaquin January 22-25 - Presbytery of San Francisco January 30 - Maryville, New Providence Church ( introduction of February Meetings ) Many of the dates after the close of the February Meetings are still rather tentative, and so we are not listing here any of his spring schedule. In addition to these speaking engagements there are meet- ings of the Presbyterian General Council, Presbyterian College Union and so on, which Dr. Lloyd must attend. It is hoped that alumni meetings can be arranged in Boston, Los Angeles, and San Francisco at the times of Dr. Lloyd's visits, as he is to be in each of those areas more than one day.
