President of the Maryville College 
Alumni Association 

Dear Maryville College Alumni: 

As the many of you who were present will agree, Saturday, October 12, was an exciting and satisfy- 
ing Homecoming Day on College Hill. However, we did manage to have a short meeting of your Execu- 
tive Board in order to plan some future events. 

Commencement time is of course a most important time for Seniors, but it is also the traditional 
season for Alumni class reunions. It may seem to be a little early to be writing about class reunions next 
May, but we feel that the sooner we all make our class and personal plans, the better our activities will 

Under our general set-up, each Senior Class President is permanent leader of his class. The classes 
who will normally hold reunions in 1958 and their respective classes are listed on page nine. No doubt 
the presidents will be getting in touch with their classmates early next year. In any event, if your class is 
on the schedule, we are sure that your President will be glad to hear from you and to learn of any sug- 
gestions you may have for your reunion. 

Let's do all we can to make 1958 a big reunion year. 



Don Briggs, a member of the Class of 1933, is employee benefit manager for ACF Industries, Inc., of New York 
City. He is responsible for the supervision and administration of the company's pension and group insurance plan, a 
pretty big undertaking as ACF Industries employs 17,000 workers and has 22 plants in 12 states. 

He is married to the former Ruth Farlee, an alumna of Maryville College in the Class of 1934. They have two 
children, one of whom is a sophomore at Maryville this year. Don and his family live in Freeport, Long Island, N. Y.

12 proved to be successful and pleasant— except the football 
score at the end of the day. Alumni President Don Briggs and 
many others returned to the campus for all or part of the 
day and participated in the various events. Dr. Joseph J. 
Copeland, Pastor of Second Presbyterian Church, Knoxville, 
of which Dr. Isaac Anderson, first President of Maryville 
College, was first Pastor, in a brilliant address made Dr. 
Anderson live again for students, faculty, and alumni. This 
was the 25th Founders Day Convocation, the observance be- 
ing inaugurated in 1933 when we moved the remains of Isaac 
Anderson and his family from the old New Providence Church 
cemetery to our little college cemetery. 

2. THE CHAPEL ORGAN, built during the past two years 
in Cleveland, Ohio, by the Holtkamp Organ Company, Amer- 
ica's oldest organ builders, and installed during the summer, 
has provided new inspiration this year. It will be formally 
dedicated on the evening of November 26, in connection with 
which there will be an organ concert by Dr. Theodore C. 
Schaefer, distinguished organist of Washington, D. C. Else- 
where in these pages is a description of the organ. With this 
and the one at the Fine Arts Music Hall we have two of the 
most notable organs in this part of the nation. 

3. THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS of the College has 
six new members elected by the Presbyterian Synod of Mid- 
South last June. Also there are now seven Honorary Directors 
elected by the Synod in accord with an amendment to the 
By-Laws of the College creating the category of Honorary 
Director for those who reach retirement age as ordinary 
members of the Board and such others as Synod may elect. 
This plan strengthens the Board by increasing its number 
from the thirty-six specified in the College Charter and By- 
Page Four 

Laws, to this number plus the Honorary Directors who have 
all the duties and rights of Directors except to vote and hold 
office. Elsewhere in these pages is a list of the new Directors 
and Honorary Directors. The enlarged Board met October 

4. THE NEW DORMITORY is nearing realization and 
our architects promise that we can move in next September. 
We hope to have a "ground breaking" before long, but cannot 
set the date yet. Our application to the U. S. Government for 
a college housing loan of $400,000 has been finally approved. 
We plan to add half of it to the $200,000 we now have on 
hand for the new women's dormitory, and use the other half 
to rehabilitate Carnegie, Pearsons, and Memorial Halls. We 
will not invest in a major remodeling of Baldwin because the 
present plan calls for using it only a few more years and then 
replacing it with a new general administrative or academic 
building appropriate for that front central location. 

5. THIS YEAR'S OPERATING BUDGET is the largest in 
the College's history due in part to the general inflation, but 
due chiefly to increases in salaries which we count a first 
priority. We have made some salary increase annually for 
several years and propose to continue to do so. Last year our 
operation came out in the red. It will be even more in the 
red this year, unless we receive twice as much in unrestricted 
current gifts as in past years. I wish to appeal to everyone 
among the alumni to include a gift to tlie operating budget 
of the College this year, through the Buck-of-the-Month plan 
or otherwise. 

With hearty good wishes. 

Cordially yours, 

P^aUtf^ /Clrm.A,J^ ;?C<l<»^.<-7 X^ 

Alumni Homecoming - October 12, 1957 

In spite of the very early date and the vicious fki epidemic, 
the 1957 Homecoming celebration was an outstanding success. 
A succession of carefully planned features kept a large crowd 
of returning alumni busy and enthusiastic. 

At the 25th Founders Day Convocation, Don Briggs 
brought greetings from the more than four thousand Maryville 
College alumni. The principal address for the occasion was 
delivered by Dr. Joseph J. Copeland, pastor of Second Presby- 
terian Church, Knoxville. 

The Alumni luncheon, which provides an excellent oppor- 
tunity for informal group reunions, continued a successful plan 
inaugurated last year, and nearly ninety people were present. 
The general consensus of opinion is that it should be made 
a regular feature of the Homecoming schedule. 

As Don Briggs points out in his letter, a meeting of the 
Executive Board was sandwiched in between the luncheon 
and the Homecoming Parade, and several important sugges- 
tions were acted upon. The recommendations requiring im- 
mediate action are described in this issue of the ALUMNI 

After the parade, there was an alumni Open House in the 
court of the Chapel-Theatre. Mrs. Earl Blazer ( Conchita 
Bertran, '31), Mrs. John Kenst ( Faye LeQuire, '31), and Miss 
Jane Huddleston, '49, were in charge. An organ recital on the 
beautiful new Chapel organ by Mr. James Bloy of the Depart- 
ment of Fine Arts gave alumni an opportunity to hear the 
new instrument. Just before the barbecue, an informal ex- 
hibition of swimming and diving at the College Pool under 
the supervision of Mrs. William Largen ( Edith Merle DeLaney, 
'48), added a bit of variety to a busy schedule. 

More than five hundred alumni and friends were present 
at the barbecue. The two Ernies— Ernie B. Lowe, '35, and 
Ernie Coldwell, '35 did another wonderful job as co-chairmen 
of the committee on arrangements for the barbecue. The 
committee on serving consisted of Mrs. Edward Lyle (Edna 
McCamy, '29), Mrs. L. C. Olin (Bessie Henry, '20), Mrs. 

Roy Laughmiller (Polly Park, '43), and Mrs. C. W. Burchfield 
(Martha Henry, '27). 

The entire program was the direct result of extraordinary 
cooperative planning. At least thirty people worked "behind 
the scenes" at the barbecue, another fifty contacted alumni 
in the Maryville-Knoxville areas in the novel Operation Tel- 
Alumni which worked so well last year. In fact, everybody 
cooperated to make Homecoming a tremendous success except 
East Tennessee State!

On Tuesday evening, November 26, the new organ in the 
Samuel Tyndale Wilson Chapel will be dedicated with an 
appropriate program. Many alumni had an opportunity to hear 
the magnificent instrument at Homecoming. 

The Chapel organ, unlike the one in the Fine Arts Center 
Music Hall, has most of the pipes enclosed by silver fiberglass 
fabric stretched by Knoxville Scenic Studios over wooden 
frames anchored to steel uprights. 

Built and installed by the Holtkamp Organ Company of 
Cleveland, Ohio, the oldest organ makers in America, the 
new organ has fifty-eight show pipes which stand in an 
artistic design on oak windchests. These pipes are all "live" 
and are played as part of the organ. There are no "dummy" 
show pipes in either the Chapel or the Music Hall organ. 
The three manual console, finished in oak to match the great 
screen at the back of the platform, is movable, and easily 
placed in various positions and at various angles, as may be 
desirable for singing by the audience, accompaniment at 
such events as the annual rendition of Messiah, and organ 

Specifications for the new organ include 39 stops, 49 ranks, 
and 2,564 pipes. These include a trumpet rank of 61 pipes, 
and in addition, there is a set of 22 chimes. The general range 
is approximately fifty per cent greater than that of the large 
organ in the College Music Hall, which was installed in 1951 
also by Holtkamp. 

The dedication program will be played by Dr. Theodore C. 
Schaefer, of Washington, D. C, organist at the National 
Presbyterian Church. He is also choirmaster at this church, 
which is attended by President Eisenhower. Commercial 
recordings by the choirs on the Mcintosh label include works 
by Britten, Buxtehude, Handel, and others. Dr. Schaefer is 
nationally known as an organ recitalist and lecturer. Currently 
he is in his sixth season of accompanying Mildred Miller, 
mezzo-soprano of the Metropolitan Opera Company, in nation- 
wide tours. Other singers he has accompanied include Vivian 
Delia Chiesa, Alice Howland, Jane Hobson, and Richard 

His program for the dedication of the organ in the Chapel 
will include compositions from the Baroque period by Bruhns, 
Buxtehude, Kuhnau, and Haydn. Romantic and contemporary 
composers listed include Franck, Dupre, Benjamin Britten, and 
Leo Sowerby. 

We would like to remind you that it takes about four weeks 
from the time material is assembled 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. 

Seldom has a project received such widespread approval 
and recognition as Don Briggs' suggestion in the September 
newsletter concerning the publication of an Alumni Directory. 

"Count me in," is the universal reaction in the avalanche of 
notes and letters which have literally poured into the Alumni 
Office. Incidentally, the heavy mail resulted in the best 
month for the BOM receipts since last February. So Don 
really stirred things up with his idea. 

At the meeting of the Executive Board during the Home- 
coming activities, the decision was made unanimously to pro- 
ceed with the Directory. Various suggestions were made and 
many others have been received as to the best method by 
which to approach the project. The most practical ones have 
been carefully noted and we hope the result will be well 
received. It is quite an ambitious undertaking, and it is im- 
possible at this time to even hazard an idea as to a publica- 
tion date. However, a beginning has been made and progress 
will be reported in the SCOTTY-GRAMS. 

Cost of the Directory will probably be limited to fifty 
cents, although many alumni wrote that they would be willing 
to invest a dollar in one. Unsolicited donations from alumni 
to help defray the expenses of the publication have already 
soared over the one hundred dollar mark, so it is at least 
a possibility that the Directory can be published and furnished 
to all alumni for nothing. The Executive Board was of the 
opinion that the Directory should be as simple as possible, with 
no fancy frills. A revision every three or four years would do 
much to help keep alumni interest at its present high level. 

You'll be hearing more about the Directory as plans 


Another decision of the Executive Board has to do with 
the annual award of a plaque or a cup to members of the 
football team for special achievement. 

The suggestion was made that since the members of the 
football team receive comparatively scant attention and recog- 
nition for their faithful performance on the gridiron, day in and 
day out, it would be an appropriate gesture for the Alumni 
Association to make two annual awards: one to the most 
valuable player on the squad, the other to the most inipro\ed 

The Executive Board members unanimously adopted this 
suggestion with the further recommendation that the most 
valuable player award be made on the basis of the vote of 
the team members themselves, and the most improved player 
award go to the player who in the opinion of the coaching 
staff is the most improved. 

Suitable trophies will be secured and presented to the 
players at the annual football banquet in Pearsons Hall on 
Monday, November 25.

Maryville College and the Cammuntty 

For many years, through the Artists Series, the productions 
of the Maryville College Playhouse, the Faith Cooperative 
Parish, an extensive intercollegiate program in athletics, and 
numerous other projects, Maryville College has been an im- 
portant influence in the Maryville community. 

This year, however, the College is assuming a more import- 
ant role in the various phases of community living than ever 

A recent program launched under the direction of Dr. 
Winifred Shannon, instructor in French and German at the 
College, is a case in point. Approximately one hundred and 
thirty-five students at Fort Craig Elementary School are 
learning Spanish, French, and German in the third and fifth 
grades in diis highly interesting experiment. Six student 
teachers from the College devote several hours each week to 
the project while six members of the College faculty act as 

Making extensive use of visual aids, the youngsters learn 
songs, colors, names of objects in the classroom, the parts 
of the body, and other simple words. Costumes and dances 
are used to stimulate interest. 

Very few schools in Tennessee have initiated such pro- 
grams: Oak Ridge, Harriman, the Peabody School in Nashville, 
the East Tennessee State Training School for elementary 
children in Johnson City— there are very few of them. So 
the College is really in on the ground floor with a program 
that has tremendous possibilities. 

The Children's Theatre, which meets on Saturday mornings 
under the direction of Miss Kathleen Craven, is another new 
offering this semester which has proven very successful. There 
are currently thirty children enrolled, with a waiting list of 
twenty-six. A play will be presented each semester by the 
Children's Theatre group. 

Therapy for children with speech disorders is afforded this 
year for the first time under the leadership of Mrs. C. Q. 
Yeaman, a new member of the faculty. There are at present 
seventeen children enrolled. 

The Maryville College Playhouse Film Society conducts two 
film series each year. One designed especially for children 
is held on Saturday mornings. The average attendance has ap- 
proximated two hundred. The series for adults, consisting 
largely of foreign films and some outstanding films that would 
not be shown normally in local theatres, is open to the com- 
munity and has been attended by many townspeople. 

A swimming class for children is offered each Saturday 
morning under the direction of Mrs. Edith Largen. There is 
also a class for women on a week-night. 

Classes in Music and Art have been offered for many 
years. Currently, a total of 169 pre-college age students is 
taking counses in Music and 13 adults are enrolled in Music 
classes. Five adults are registered for Art courses, with a pre- 
college group numbering twenty. Additionally, Mrs. David 
Ramsey teaches Art in the Maryville and the Alcoa High School 
to a total of twenty-three students. This is a new feature 
this fall. 

A serious effort is being made to provide a greater variety 
of offerings for adults in afternoon, evening, and Saturday 
morning classes. A new offering in Ceramics is being taught 
by Mrs. David Ramsey. This is an introduction to the basic 
techniques of pottery, including throwing on the potter's wheel 
and hand-building by the coil, slab, and free-form methods. 
A course in Philosophy meets under Dr. Horace E. Orr, 
making use of the seminar method in dealing with the thinking 
of selected great philosophers. The seminar may be taken for 
credit or audited by students or residents of the community. 

The College is reaching out into the community in other 
ways. Frank Layman, the College Treasurer, is co-sponsoring 
with James W. Hampton, director of public relations, a series 
of informal luncheons with local business men in the Faculty 
Tea Room. 

There are the numerous traditional occasions: the Messiah, 
the May Day fete, the Easter Sunrise Service, and similar 
events. There are several more recent innovations, like the 
annual High School Day when six hundred Blount County 
seniors spend the day on the campus in a program sponsored 
jointly by the Chamber of Commerce and the College, or the 
annual East Tennessee Mathematics Contest, when one hundred 
of the high school math wizards compete in a testing center 
at the College with hundreds of other students throughout the 

And there are additional plans in the hopper! A Faculty 
Speakers Bureau, a Counseling Center at the College— there is 
almost no end to the ideas with which the College seeks to 
fulfill a new destiny in the community. Alumni can be of 
inestimable aid as the College moves forward on every front. 
The Town and Gown relationship is but one aspect of the 
college program, but it is one of the most important.

ALUMNI DAY - 1957 

One of the largest and most enthusiastic crowds in recent 
years attended the annual Alumni Dinner in Pearsons Hall 
during the Commencement Week program. 

The members of the Class of 1932, back for their twenty- 
fifth reunion, stole the spotlight with a large attendance of 
returning alumni from all over the United States. George 
Osbom, president of the Class, brought brief greetings to the 
alumni and Mrs. Cornelius M. De Boe, of Jamestown, North 
Dakota, sang two numbers at the dinner. She is the former 
Naomi Phyllis Willingham. 

An ovation was given to the members of the Class of 1907, 
the fifty-year Class, which was represented by five alumni. 
Another was present at the general alumni luncheon at noon. 
James R. Goan, of Blue Ridge, Ga., was unable to be present 
but sent greetings. Of the ten known living members of the 
Class, therefore, six were present during the Alumni Day 
activities. The following were present: Walter M. Campbell, 
Boulder, Colo.; Charles B. Converse, Knoxville, Tenn.; Fred- 
erick Alexander Elmore, Louisville, Tenn.; Mrs. Earl Smith 
(Cora Franklin), Chattanooga, Tenn.; Louis Phihp Guigou, 
Valdese, N. C; and Richard Clarence Samsel, Bean Station, 

A new feature in the afternoon, an Officers' Reception on 
the lawn near Thaw Hall, was well attended. Another inno- 

vation, an afternoon business meeting of the Alumni Associa- 
tion, was quite successful. Officers for the next year were 
elected as follows: 

President, Donald Briggs, Flushing, N. Y., '33; Vice Presi- 
dent, Mrs. Roy Laughmiller, Maryville, Tenn., '43; Recording 
Secretary, Miss Winifred Painter, Maryville, '1.5. 

New members of the Executive Board were selected as 
follows: Dr. James R. Bennett, '41; Frank Atchison, '36; and 
Mrs. G. W. Burchfield, '27, all of Maryville. Two area mem- 
bers elected for a three-year term were Louis Blair, Cedar 
Rapids, Iowa, '32; and Rev. Andrew Newcomer, Bloomfield, 
N. J., '33. 

Edwin Shelley, retiring president of the Alumni Association, 
presented a check for S3,000 to President Ralph W. Lloyd as 
the last official act of his administration. The money repre- 
sented contributions to the Buck-of the Mondi Club, and 
brought to $12,000 the amount turned over to the College by 
the Alumni Association over a seventeen-month period. 

Joe C. Gamble, Chairman of the Board of Directors of 
the College, reported to the alumni of the activities of the 
Long-Range Planning Committee which was appointed last 
year to study the philosophy and policies of the College.

The 138th annual Commencement exercises of Maryville 
College were held in the Samuel Tyndale Wilson Chapel on 
Wednesday, May 22. There were one hundred and eighteen 
seniors in the graduating class. 

Miss Barbara Wilkie, of Skyland, North Carolina, was 
graduated magna cum laude, the second to attain this honor 
since 1952. A complete report on present occupations and 
activities of the Class of 1957 is given elsewhere in this issue 
of the Bulletin. 

Dr. Robert W. Gibson, president of Monmouth College in 
Illinois and Moderator of the United Presbyterian Church 
of North America, delivered the Commencement address on 
the subject "What Shall I Do?" 

Honorary degrees were conferred by President Ralph W. 
Lloyd upon the following men: Doctor of Letters— Robert W. 
Gibson, Monmouth, Illinois; Doctor of Music— Theodore C. 
Schaefer, Washington, D. C; Doctor of Divinity— Roy Samuel 
Buffat, Centralia, Illinois; Doctor of Divinity— Paul M. Edris, 
Daytona Beach, Florida. Dr. Buffat, who is pastor of First 
Presbyterian Church in Centralia, Illinois, was graduated from 
Maryville College in 1923. Dr. Edris, pastor of the First 
Presbyterian Church in Daytona Beach, Florida, was gradu- 
ated from Maryville in 1932. Fifty-year certificates were 
awarded the following: Walter M. Campbell, Boulder, Colo.; 
Frederick A. Elmore, Louisville, Tennessee; and Ricliiird C. 
Samsel, Bean Station, Tennessee. 


As Don Briggs suggested in his letter, the sooner plans are 
under way for class reunions, the better it will be. We all 
have a tendency to procrastinate! 

Traditionally, each class president is permanent president 
of his class. We are therefore publishing the names of the 
class presidents of all reunion classes in the hope that they 
will start the ball rolling as soon as possible. We want the 
1958 reunion to be the best ever. 

Classes scheduled for reunion on Saturday, May 17, are as 

1953-President, Curtis B, Wilbanks, 228 Dauntless Lane, 
Hartford, Conn. 

1948-President, Charles Hoglan, 403 E. Center Street, 
Searcy, Arkansas 

1943— President, Arthur Bushing, 713 Jones Avenue, 
Maryville, Tennessee 

1938-President, Dr. James N. Proffitt, Route 2, 
Maryville, Tennessee 

1933-President, Ralph Conrad Quenelle, 4157 E. Hawthorne 
St., Tucson, Arizona 

1928— President, John Gordon Jeffries, 1 School Lane, 
Tilton, N. H. 

Get your letters going. And by the way, the Alumni office 
will help in any way possible, provided, of course, you give 
lis a little break in timing. In other words, we'll do our best, 
within limitations! 


Alumni Clubs are increasingly active. We hope this is a 
healthy sign! 

From the Coast comes the belated news of a meeting last 
fall of the San Francisco Alumni in the Menlo Park Presby- 
terian Church. Dr. Lloyd was present, spoke of recent de- 
velopments at the College, and showed some very good slides. 
There were sixteen alumni present. 

The New York City Alumni Club met last May at West- 
minister Presbyterian Church in Bloomfield, New Jersey, with 
more than thirty in attendance. Recordings by the Choir were 
well received. Rev. Andrew Newcomer, '33, president of the 
New York Club and pastor of the church where the meeting 
was held, did such a good job in setting up the meeting that 
he was re-elected. Evelyn French, '44, was likewise re-elected 
secretary-treasurer. The idea of combining with the Phila- 
delphia and Washington Clubs every two years was well 

The irrepressible Florida Alumni met on November 2 at 
George Fischbach's Dude Ranch in Lake Wales with a total 
of 35 regular and honorary members. Friends and children 
brought the total to sixty-eight. Florida Alumni chairman 
Dick Strain, '31, read the speech which Jim Hampton, college 
public relations director, was to have delivered. For the 
second year in succession, "Scotty" had to cancel a Florida trip 
because of illness. Dick reported much progress in alumni

At the Commencement Exercises on May 22, President 
Lloyd made the following announcement regarding Coach 
Lonibe S. Honaker and the audience responded with a moving 

"Coach Lonibe Scott Honaker, who for thirty-six years has 
been Athletic Director and Head Football, Basketball and 
Baseball Coach at Maryville College, has been advised by his 
physicians that he cannot undertake again the strenuous tasks 
of coaching teams in football or basketball. 

"When he and his physicians informed us of this necessity, 
we asked permission to speak of it publicly in order that we 
might report a number of notable facts about his career. 

"One of these facts is that Mr. Honaker has coached 
varsity athletic teams at one college for thirty-six years. This 
has received wide attention and official national recognition in 
high athletic circles. He has received an Award of Honor 
from The American Football Writers Association. It waj 
reported last year that there was not more than one college 
football coach then in active service who had been longer at 
one institution. It is common knowledge that the tenure of 
American football coaches is uncertain and often relatively 
brief. Coach Honaker's thirty-six years at Maryville College 
is an outstanding achievement, both in length and in results. 
He has long been acclaimed one of the best college coaches in 
the South. 

"Before coming to Maryville College thirty-six years ago, 
he had coached at Lincoln College in Illinois, Baldwin-Wallace 
College in Ohio, and Southwestern University in Texas. 

"When we review Coach Honaker's entire career we dis- 
covered a record which, so far as we know, has never been 
equalled anywhere in the nation. It is this: he has coached 
each of three major sports— football, basketball, and baseball- 
more than forty playing seasons. His coaching career covers 
forty-five years, but in those years were two World Wars when 
intercollegiate athletics were interrupted. He has coached 
football teams forty-two years, basketball teams forty years, and 
baseball teams forty-one years. 

"While Coach Honaker must give up his direct participation 
on the football field, and elsewhere, he will continue in his 
present capacity as Chairman of the Division of Health and 
Physical Education and Director of Athletics, I wish not only 
to express appreciation for all that he has done, but also voice 
the hope that being relieved of some of the duties of the past 
he will have increased strength for the other important work 
of his position." 


John A. ( "J D" ) Davis, Associate Professor of Physical 
Education and assistant football coach for the past seventeen 
years, was appointed head football coach for the 1957 season, 
succeeding Lombe S. Honaker. Also he will serve as head 
basketball coach, turning over to another the wrestling team, 
with which he has had notable success. 

Marvin E. ("Big Mitch") Mitchell, last year Assistant 
Coach at Rule High School, Knoxville, captain of the un- 
defeated and untied Maryville College team of 1946, was 
appointed assistant football coach and Instructor in Physical 
Education. He will coach the wrestling team during the winter 

As in the two preceding years, Thomas M. Cragan, '41, 
whose regular work is teaching history, is assisting also with 

In addition to these assignments in major sports. Associate 
Professor Commodore B. Fisher is working with Mr. Mitchell 
in directing intramural athletics, and Professor Ralph T. Case 
is serving as tennis coach, both places having been made vacant 
by the resignation of Assistant Professor Kenneth P. Johnson 
to become head coach and athletic director at West Georgia 
State College. 


Pearsons Hall, and Mrs. Purnell, formerly Assistant in Pearsons, 
is now Head of McLain Memorial Hall. 

Ernest William Taylor, of Friendsville, is at present filling 
the position of Night Watchman, made vacant by the re- 
tirement of Ralph Irwin. 

Doria B. Teaman (Mrs. C. Q.), Instructor in Speech. Mrs. 
Yeanian took part of her college work at the University of 
Southern California, then graduated from the University of 
Tennessee and from the University's Law School. She has 
also done graduate work in speech and has taught at the 
Tennessee School for the Deaf. 

The number of students preparing to teach has increased to 
such an extent that it has been necessary to add to the faculty 
in that field. Dr. V. F. Goddard, '13, who retired this year 
from the superintendency of the Alcoa City Schools and who 
is one of the leading educators of the State, is teaching a 
class in Education and one in Psychology. Mrs. William D. 
Powers, who is completing work on her Ph.D. at the University 
of Tennessee, is teaching two classes in Education. 

Mrs. Lee Hagan, a graduate of the University of Florida, 
is teaching a class in French. 

Mr. C. Herbert Reed is teaching a class in Mathematics, 
made necessary by the increased enrollment in Mathematics. 
Mr. Reed holds the B.S. and M.S. degree from the University 
of Tennessee. 

Mr. and Mrs. Paul Rowland are teaching English half time, 
filling the place of Miss Blair this year. Mr. Rowland was for 
many years Professor of English at MacMurray College, Illinois, 
and Mrs. Rowland also taught there for a time. They came 
to Maryville to live when he retired two years ago.

in 1954. Concert performances in Vienna and Graz were en- 
thusiastically received, and in 1956, the group repeatedly 
toured Western European countries. Their festival appearances 
included several in Salzburg. 

I Solisti will appear in Maryville on Tuesday, December 3.

college sent three teachers and one administrative officer. 
The Maryville four were Dr. Paul J. Cooper of the Foreign 
Language faculty; Miss Kathleen Craven, Drama and Speech; 
Dr. Elizabeth H. Jackson, English; and Miss Viola Lightfoot,

projects, lectures by outstanding guest speakers, trips to New 
York, and so on. 

At the first Faculty Club meeting this fall the four 
delegates made brief reports on the Workshop. Later they will 
make more detailed reports to the President and Faculty and 
to the Long Range Planning Committee, in which they will 
include specific suggestions and ideas which they think will 
be of value to Maryville College.

Sport-Light on the Hill 


The fighting Highlanders came within fifteen seconds of 
staging the biggest upset of the year in Tennessee when they 
fought a highly-favored Carson-Newman eleven to a rousing 
13-13 tie in the season's finale for both teams. 

The Carson-Newman outfit, rated their best in ten years, 
was a four-touchdown favorite to overwhelm the Scots. Mary- 
ville, off to a fine start this season, had run into the flu 
epidemic with disastrous results in several contests, but they 
were high as a kite for the Carson-Newman struggle. 

To the amazement of the crowd and the consternation of 
Carson-Newman, Coach Davis' boys threw the single-wing into 
the ashcan, used the T-formation as if they owned it, and 
played the Eagles off their feet with a breath-taking first-half 
exhibition that found the Scotties scoring a touchdown the 
very first time they had the ball. Completely dominating play 
against their arch-rivals for the entire first half, Maryville 
trotted off the field with a 13-0 lead. 

Carson-Newman snapped back into the ball game in the 
second half with a surging ground attack that led to a score, 
but with only five minutes to go, Maryville worked the ball 
to the Carson-Newman two-yard line, where they lost it on 
downs. The Eagles then took off, with everything working full 
blast against a tiring Highlander line, and aided by a fifteen- 
yard penalty ( the only one in the entire game! ) , went 92 
yards for a score. The touchdown was made by a forward 
pass with fifteen seconds to spare— the only pass completed 
by either team in the game. Fortunately, the conversion was 

The fans who saw the game will be talking about it for 
years. It was a real thriller, fast-moving and clean. The 
result helped those of us who suffered through the Home- 
coming massacre to forget the indignities suffered during that 
long evening! 

Coach John A. ( J. D. ) Davis has reason to be proud of 
his first year as head coach. He and Marvin (Big Mitch) 
Mitchell and Tom Cragan did a superb job with the team in 
the face of heart-breaking circumstances. As they'll leam to 
say in Los Angeles— wait till next year!
