The 1965 NOCATULA 

Mrs. Claryse D. Myers 

Mrs. Myers 

A woman who for many years has been a symbol of achievement at 
Tennessee Wesley an College is Mrs. Claryse D. Myers. Her accomplish- 
ments have been applauded on previous occasions; we would like to rec- 
ognize them again. 

Mrs. Myers was born in Dawson, Texas. She remained in Texas to earn 
her baccalaureate degree at Texas State College for Women. She moved to 
Tennessee, where she was awarded her master's degree by George Pea- 
body College in Nashville. After teaching English at Chicago Training 
School, she came to Tennessee Wesleyan as an instructor in English, and 
with the exception of one year, has been associated with the college since 

Since Mrs. Myers became head librarian of Merner-Pfeiffer Library in 
1951 , the library has become a place of increasingly intense intellectual 
excitement. Ten years ago it housed classrooms as well as book rooms; 
moreover, its periodicals collection was crowded into spaces among refer- 
ence works in the North Reading Room. Today the classrooms are gone; 
the library is completely a library— where, since the summer of 1962, there 
has been a room devoted exclusively to periodicals. 

The librarian who has guided these changes is a teacher and adminis- 
trator totally dedicated to her work. She has constantly looked for ways 
and means to make the library operate more efficiently. These have 
ranged from such small, but very necessary, things as insisting that all 
cards be kept precisely in order and that each of the countless book lists 
from publishers be thoroughly checked, to such unselfish efforts as visit- 
ing many other libraries during her vacations to seek neiu methods for 
improving the library of Tennessee Wesleyan. Her influence has ex- 
tended beyond the library to the enthusiastic promotion of everything 
which would sharpen the rational and cultural perception of students. 
However, Mrs. Myers' greatest contribution to the improvement of the 
library has been her constant attitude of courage when solving the prob- 
lems which arise in a growing college. She has patiently directed her assist- 
ants in the difficult task of improving the library to its present serviceability. 

And so, in appreciation of her years of service to Merner-Pfeiffer 
Library; her untiring interest in the students of this college; her devotion 
to that which Tennessee Wesleyan has been; her work for that which it 
is; and her dreams of that which it can become; we, the senior class of 
1965, dedicate this NOCATULA TO 

Mrs. Claryse D. Myers 



The intellectual hub of the Tennessee Wesleyan Campus is the Merner- 
Pfeiffer Library, whose operations and growth have been directed most recently 
by Mrs. Claryse D. Myers, who retires this year as Head Librarian after thirty 
years of dedicated service to the College. A gift of Mrs. Henry Pfeiffer of New 
York City, the Library was built in 1940-1941. The cornerstone was laid in 
November, 1941, and the formal dedication was held on November 5, 1941, 
with Bishop Paul B. Kern, Mrs. Pfeiffer, and Governor Prentice Cooper par- 
ticipating. Under Mrs. Myers' careful supervision, Merner-Pfeiffer Library has 
attained a high professional standard of operations and has greatly expanded 
its holdings. The building has spacious reading rooms, fireproof stack areas 
with shelving for 30,000 volumes, study carrells, offices, and special workrooms. 
Visitors and examiners for educational associations have consistently given 
the Library excellent and superior ratings. Enjoying a sunny Fall day on the 
library steps are (left to right) Jim Murrian, Kathy Oates, Debbie Adams, 
Gene Sledge, and Roy Sewell. Pictured below are, left, Linda Fowler and, 
right, Emma Martin. 


Chatting before class-time at Ritter Hall are (left to right) Roy DeLotelle, 
David Hnrd, John Beller, and George McGrew. Built in 1891 to honor the 
memory of Elizabeth Ritter, Ritter Hall is one of the beautiful older buildings 
which connects a growing Tennessee Wesleyan with its past. Once owned and 
operated by the Woman's Division of the Board of Missions of the Methodist 
Church, Ritter Hall was a gift to the College, under the auspices of the Woman's 
Society of Christian Service. A dormitory for women until 1962, it is now a 
dormitory for men on the south side and women on the north, and houses 
offices for the Business and Education Departments and their classrooms. It was 
deeded to the College in 1963 by the W.S.C.S.

The brisk days of autumn and sunny days of spring both bring athlet- 
ically-minded students and faculty of Tennessee Wesleyan en masse to the 
Beene Tennis Center's excellent facilities. Dinah Dean (left) and Debbie 
Pollard appear for a practice session at the Center, which was made pos- 
sible by the donation of Mr. Jones C. Beene, III and was constructed in 
the Fall of 1962. Honoring the memory of Jones C. Beene, Jr., the College's 
first football coach, the center has three courts available to TWC students, 
TWC faculty, and to members of the Athens Tennis Club. 


The stately entrance to the Lucy Hornsby Fowler Residence Hall for 
Women expresses the dignity of the Colonial architecture to be seen in 
many of the buildings on the Tennessee Wesleyan College campus. Leaving 
for classes from Fowler Residence Hall, which houses 128 female students, 
are (front, left to right) Lana Mynatt and Nan Hughes, and (back, left to 
right) Ann Waller, Norman Frazier, and Debbie Adams. Constructed in 
1962 at a cost of $520,646, the residence hall commemorates Lucy Hornsby 
Fowler, and through her the traditional ties between the Fowler and 
Hornsby families and TWC. Major James Hornsby, the father of Lucy 
Hornsby Fowler, was an original incorporator of Tennessee Wesleyan; her 
husband, General James A. Fowler, was associated with the college as stu- 
dent, professor, trustee, and president of the Board of Trustees. The hall 
includes two apartments for resident supervisors, a formal lounge, two 
study lounges, and a recreational lounge. 


The cultural center of the Tennessee Wesleyan College campus is the Sherman Fine Arts 
College Center, memorializing Mrs. Laura T. Sherman. Facilities for the Department of Music 
and the TWC Choir are located in the East wing of the building, while the center is occupied 
by the large dining hall, a private dining hall for faculty and guests, and a student lounge. The 
West wing houses a soda shop, book store, post office, a day students' lounge, student publica- 
tion offices, the chaplain's office, and a small prayer chapel. The center was a gift to the College 
from the Holston Conference Expansion Crusade, interested friends and foundations, and Mr. 
Tom Sherman, an Athens businessman who is an honorary member of the TWC Board of Trus- 
tees. Gathered before the dining hall entrance are (left to right) Paul Reeverts, Relus Fleming, 
Doug Smith, Lee Quillian, Allen Dennis, Judy Johnson, and Michael Gross.

Yesterday and Tomorrow meet, Past and Fu- 
ture are blended in the building which sym- 
bolizes the continuity of tradition at Tennessee 
Wesleyan College. Begun by the Independent 
Order of Odd Fellows, McMinn Lodge No. 54, 
the institution was started with the name of 
Athens Female College in 1854. By the invitation 
of its trustees in 1857, the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, South, responded by providing addition- 
al financial support. After the sum of $2,000 was 
raised, Old College Building was completed at 
a cost of about $5,500. Two more acres of land 
were obtained, and Methodist sponsorship of the 
College was begun. 

During the War Between the States, Old Col- 
lege was used as a hospital for wounded troops. 
But despite the interruptions of the Civil War, 
the College had become a coeducational institu- 
tion in a decade with 52 men and 34 women stu- 
dents. Others were enrolled in the Preparatory 

Mellowed with time, Old College is main- 
tained in faultless condition, and continues to 
serve the classroom needs of Tennessee Wesleyan 
College. Its beautifully-spacious porch is a fami- 
liar meeting place for students chatting about 
their day's activities.

Tennessee Wesleyan students found themselves in the spirit of the 1964 presidential campaign when they conducted 
their own Republican Convention in the spring of 1964. The Convention, directed by the Social Science Department 
and Wesleyan's Student Government, had as its National Chairman, Rick Myers, with chairmen and delegates repre- 
senting each state in the Union. 

The Convention opened with Representative William Brock (R.-Tenn.) introducing the distinguished Senator from 
Colorado, Peter Dominick. 

All of the formalities and demonstrations of a National Convention were a part of the mock convention. When the 
campaigning was completed and the votes counted, Senator Barry Goldwater (R.-Ariz.) was selected as the Presiden- 
tial nominee and his running mate for the Vice-Presidency was Governor George Romney from Michigan.

Myers, Jean Burton, Keith Nicholson. 


The college cafeteria was transformed for an evening into a 
lovely setting for the annual May Dance. 

Candidates for the honor of May Queen were selected by their 
respective classes, and these girls, with their escorts, made up the 
May Court. The high point of the evening came with the presen- 
tation and grand march of the candidates, and was climaxed by 
the crowning of the Queen, Judy Jones, a senior. The two 
runners-up, Jean Burton and Sue Ella Hankins, also seniors, 
were selected as her Maids of Honor. The Queen and Maids of 
Honor were chosen by a vote of the Student Body. 

The success and beauty of the evening can be largely attributed 
to the able assistance of Mrs. Ralph Mohney, who worked with 
the candidates and their escorts. 

The Queen and her court display radiant smiles. 


Mr. T.W.G. 

Hugh Walker, III, popular choice of the student body for Mr. T.W.C. of 1965, calls Knoxville

Melba Davis, with her friendly smile and unfailing courtesy, was chosen by the student body as 
Miss T.W.C. for 1965. She has majored in mathematics and secondary education, and plans to 
teach mathematics next year. Melba was also honored by her sorority, Sigma Kappa, by being 
elected treasurer this year. Her parents are Mr. and Mrs. Charles M. Davis of Delano, Tennessee. 



The Tennessee VVesleyan Student Government is composed of 
twenty-one hard-working, dynamic, and interested students in 1964-65. 
This body serves as the organizing board for campus activities, con- 
ducts student-body elections, and greatly facilitates student-faculty 
relationships. This year the Government has been especially active in 
providing Wesleyan students with a variety of entertainment through 
concerts, dances, and special programs.

No other organization, probably, is more sought after than the Ambassadors. Each 
year fourteen students are selected to serve as official hosts for all college events 
related to the Offices of Development, Admissions, and Alumni Relations. They 
also participate in high school visitation programs which are conducted by the Ad- 
missions Office.

The Tennessee Wesleyan College Choir has continued 
this year in its excellent tradition. With appearances in 
high schools, churches, and other colleges, the choir, 
under the vivid direction of Mr. Andrew Harper, has 
further extended its growing reputation. 

Beginning with the fall quarter, the choir opened its 
doors to nearly thirty new members, and total member- 
ship exceeded seventy voices. Preparation for a winter 
concert was begun immediately with such numbers as 
"The Night Before Christmas," "Gloria," a portion of 
the Christmas section of Handel's "Messiah," and the 
"Fantasia on Christmas Carols." 

The choir returned from Christmas holidays ready to 
whip a winter and early spring tour into shape. The 
highlight of the winter quarter was a trip to Wheat 
Street Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia, on February 
13-14. A tour followed in the break between winter and 
spring quarters. The choir traveled principally in the 
southern end of the conference this year, singing in 
churches and high schools around the Chattanooga area. 

The annual Spring Show took all the efforts of each 
member, and opening night of "The Music Man" showed 
the reward of many hours of practice. The production 
was a great success, and another hit was chalked up for 
the choir.

The 1964-65 academic year marked another first for the 
Tennessee Wesleyan debate squad as they became bona 
fide participants in Pi Kappa Delta intercollegiate com- 
petition. Wesleyan is proud of its Tennessee Iota Chapter. 

The varsity squad closed out the last season by win- 
ning first place in extemporaneous speaking in the South- 
east Province Tournament. This year we had four re- 
turning varsity debaters: Allen Dennis, who has debated 
four years for our team, and is president of Pi Kappa 
Delta; Haney Howell, vice-president; Frances Freestone, 
secretary; and Rick Myers, recorder. Each of these three 
has debated for two years. 

The novice team proved to be one of the best in the 

state as they took honors in the Carson-Newman Invita- 
tional and won second place at the Middle Tennessee 
State Novice Tournament. The novice team included 
Curtis Sims, who has also debated varsity this year, Ann 
Pratt, Rachel Edds, Margaret Edds, David Stapley, Char- 
lotte McManus, Judy Johnson, Jim Gillespie, Bill 
Ketchersid, and Fred MacArthur. 

The varsity squad entered cross-examination competi- 
tion for the first time this year. They used this form of 
debate before civic clubs in Athens and also in an assem- 
bly program last January, and competed at Murray State 
College in Murray, Kentucky. This has been a climactic 
year in Wesleyan's forensic program. 


(Top to bottom) Mr. William Yates, Rick Myers, Haney Howell, 
Allen Dennis, Frances Freestone. 

The squad was quite busy in that they participated in many 
tournaments which were: Maryville College Novice Tour- 
nament, Appalachian State, Carson-Newman Novice Tour- 
nament, Middle Tennessee State Novice Debate and Judg- 
ing Tournament, Old Gray Mare Cross-Examination Tour- 
nament, Tennessee Wesleyan Novice Invitational, Tennes- 
see Intercollegiate Forensic Meet, the South Atlantic Fo- 
rensic Tournament, the University of Tennesssee Invita- 
tional, the National Pi Kappa Delta Convention at Tacoma, 
Washington, and the Virginia Intermont Women's Foren- 
sic Tournament. 

Honorary members of our Pi Kappa Delta, Tennessee 
Iota Chapter, include Ralph W. Mohney, Nell Mohney, 
Jack D. King, Harry Coble, Fred Puett, Neal Ensminger, 
and Dean Grant. Graduate members include Tommy Bur-

orary biological society, was installed at Tennessee Wesleyan 
in the spring of 1962. The purpose of this organization is 
to stimulate sound scholarship, to promote the dissemina- 
tion of scientific truth, and to encourage investigation in 
the life sciences. The activities include regular meetings, 
outings, and attendance at regional meetings by appointed

1964-65 brought the Alpha Xi Delts an abundance of 
wealth in various fields. Rush brought to the chapter a 
mint, in the form of fifteen top pledges. One of the pledges, 
Sara Jo Card, is a featured soloist with the Wesleyan 

A golden touch was added to the sorority room last 
spring when Alpha Xi's brought home the Greek Weekend 
Trophy. Harri Kay Brooks proudly reigns as Greek Queen. 
The golden quill shines brightly on three sisters chosen 
as sweethearts. Harri Kay Brooks is sweetheart of Sigma 
Phi Epsilon; Suzanne Smith, Rose of Pi Kappa Phi; and 
Mary Walker, sweetheart of Circle K. Serving as Sigma 
Phi Epsilon Queen of Hearts is Kay Murray. 


Leading the cheers for the Wesleyan Bulldogs were 
H. K. Brooks and Mary Walker. Connie Beaver and Judi 
Cunningham were selected as Wesleyan Ambassadors. 
Alpha Xi's show an interest in school activities as Mary 
Walker is editor of the New Exponent and H. K. Brooks 
is co-editor of the Nocatula. Leading the sophomore class 
as officers are three Alpha Xi's: Connie Beaver, vice-presi- 
dent; Mary Walker, secretary; and Pat Cole, girl repre- 

Alpha Xi's are proud of sister Kay Murray who won 
the intramural archery trophy. 

Philanthropic projects play an important part in the 
life of our Alpha Xi chapter. For the annual project, the 
Alpha Xi's are supporting a Negro community center near 
Atlanta, Georgia. 

Alpha Xi Dream Man, Bill Smalling, was honored at the 
annual sweetheart party, Snowman's Ski Chalet. 

The Alpha Xi Rose Formal was the bright point of 
winter quarter as sisters celebrated their founder's day with 
this dance at Springbrook Country Club. 

Miss Martha Hedley is deeply appreciated for her work 
as our faculty advisor.

Two new trophies graced the sorority room this fall. 
They are the Scholarship Cup for maintaining the highest 
average among the sororities, and the trophy which was 
awarded to Sue Ella Hankins, Most Outstanding Sorority 
Woman. Fall rush brought us nineteen new pledges. In- 
formal rush skit was an adaptation of "Graduation Day" 
which won the Talent Night competition in Greek Week- 
end last spring.

The start of a new year brought many honors to the Kappa Deltas. Lana Mynatt 
was elected to Who's Who in American Universities and Colleges, secretary of the Stu- 
dent Government, and was re-elected Phi Sigma Kappa Moonlight Girl. Lynne Woods 
and Susan Blackburn are Sigma Phi Epsilon Queens of Hearts, Judy Jones and Jill 
Rogers are members of the Pi Kappa Phi Rose Court, and Elaine Lewin is Sig Ep 
Pledge Princess. Also, Nan Hughes is vice-president of the Senior Class and Robin Lee 
was elected Freshman Girl Representative. Serving the Wesleyan Bulldogs as cheer- 
leaders are Joan Mynatt, head cheerleader; Susan Blackburn and Sylvia Bates. 

The pledge class sponsored the second annual Hootenanny in February, and again 
this year it was a great success. A few of the service projects we have sponsored are: 
"adopting" an underprivileged girl, assisting with the March of Dimes and the Heart 
Fund, and assisting the Athens Lion's Club in their annual sight-saving campaign. 




Sigma Kappa sisters worked hard and had lots of fun on their spring Rush 
Retreat at Watts Bar Lake. The rewards reaped came in the form of eighteen 
wonderful pledges. 

Our projects for the year have been numerous. At the present, we are in the 
process of redecorating our chapter room. Funds for this project have been greatly 
enhanced by a .f 100.00 contribution from our Pledge Class.

Sisters Linda Buttram and Cynthia Hicks Wilson had the 
pleasure of attending the 1964 Sigma Kappa Convention at 
Hot Springs, Arkansas. This indeed was a rare treat. They 
met with other sisters from all over the United States for a 
week of both work and pleasure. The week was climaxed by 
the announcement that our next convention will be in Puerto 

Honors Day brought many new trophies to our trophy case. 
The place of honor is occupied by our sports plaque, which 
we have won for the past two years. 

Gamma Psi Chapter was honored with the visit of our 
National President, Mrs. Betty Douglas. While visiting our 
chapter, she attended the Initiation Banquet. Sister Cynthia 
Wilson and Pledge Donna Adams were the recipients of the 
Best Active and Best Pledge awards presented by Mrs. Douglas. 

The Sorority is very proud of the following individual honors: 
President of Governing Board for Dorms, Maxine Bennett; 
President of Fowler Hall, President of Panhellenic Council, 
Girl Representative, Gail Lowery; Miss T. W. C, Melba Davis; 
Most Athletic Woman 1964, Cheerleader, President of Women's

The first major national fraternity installed on the cam- 
pus of Tennessee Wesleyan College, Phi Sigma Kappa, 
combines the tradition of a well established national 
fraternity with the sincere friendliness and vigorous ac- 
tivity of a thriving young group. 

As the Phi Sig brothers cheered their intramural teams 
to victory, the chapter won the campus championships in 
both football (6-0) and volleyball (5-0) this fall. Social 
activities included a dance honoring new pledges, the an- 
nual Thanksgiving banquet, and a Faculty Tea honoring 
our beautiful Moonlight Girl, Miss Lana Mynatt. Civic 
activities included a "Toys for Tots" drive at Christmas. 
Later activities during the year included a Founders' Day 
Banquet, when the chapter gathered with its alumni, and 
the annual formal banquet and dance, the Carnation Ball. 

Phi Sigma Kappa, one of the older national college 
fraternities, was founded on March 15, 1873, at Massachu- 
setts State College in Amherst, Massachusetts. Conservative 
in its policies of growth, the Fraternity now has seventy- 
eight chapters over the United States, with 35,000 living 

members. Omicron Tetarton Chapter was initiated into this 
national organization on December 5, 1959. 

The Phi Sig chapter at Tennessee Wesleyan is striving 
to create its own tradition of a strongly united brotherhood 
which is friendly to all students and campus groups, and 
to achieve a balanced emphasis on scholarship, social activi- 
ties, and sports. Omicron Tetarton also maintains close 
ties with the complex of Phi Sigma Kappa chapters in 
East Tennessee, located at the University of Tennessee 
in Knoxville, and at East Tennessee State University in 
Johnson City, Tennessee. This interchange adds much in 
fun and convenience to the cosmopolitan outlook which 
Phi Sigma Kappa seeks to cultivate. It is also a prime 
objective of the chapter to contribute to the climate of 
high academic standards and personal friendliness so re- 
markable on the campus of Tennessee Wesleyan College. 

Faculty co-advisors are Dr. Mark Schafer, Chairman of 
the College's Division of Social Sciences, and Dr. Harry 
Merrill, III, Chairman of the Humanities Division and 
the Department of English.

April 17, 1965, the first anniversary of the chartering of 
the Beta Psi Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity, marked 
the end of one of the most decisive years for the Gold and 
White on the Tennessee Wesleyan College Campus. The 
brothers of Beta Psi are proud to be a part of a great, grow- 
ing fraternity, founded December 10, 1904, at Charleston 
College, South Carolina, now encompassing 53 chapters. 

The Fall of 1964 found a scrappy Pi Kappa Phi football 
team battling to a second-place tie. The annual pancake 
supper was, as usual, packed full of hungry students eager 
to consume Burkett's delicious Pi Kapp flapjacks. 

Pi Kapps ascended to various positions of campus leader- 
ship during this decisive year: Joe Eldridge, Outstanding 
Freshman Award; Toll Coulter and David Keebler served 
as IFC officers; Harry Howard became Student Christian 
Association President; Joe Eldridge served his second term 
as Class Representative on the Student Government; Toll 
Coulter, Dick Burdette, and Don Forshay were Ambassa- 
dors. In these and many other ways, Pi Kapps answered the 
challenge to help make Tennessee Wesleyan one of the lead- 
ing small colleges in the South. 

Indeed, no flower that grows is like our Rose, Miss Suz- 
anne Smith, of Knoxville, Tennessee. Her grace and charm 
have added immeasurably to the spirit of the Pi Kapp 
house. She is assisted by her court: Misses Judy Bangs, Judy 
Jones, and Jill Rogers. 

The annual Planning Retreat was held February 19-21, 
in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Despite snow and plenty to do, 
much was accomplished in the way of strategy formulation 
for the coming year. 

Pi Kappa Phi is proud to be the sponsor of Tennessee 
Wesleyan's first campus-wide All-Sing. Competitors will 
come from all Greek and independent groups, and trophies 
will be given for large and small groups. We believe this 
All-Sing will become a vital and highly anticipated part of 
campus activities. 

The brothers of Beta Psi are glad to 
be a part of an expanding fraternity 
system, here and elsewhere, for we, 
along with the other two fraternities 
and three sororities on campus, be- 
lieve in the ideals of the early Greek 
societies. The spirit of Pi Kappa Phi 
can truly be summed up in the words: 
"Nothing shall tear us asunder."

The Brotherhood of Sigma Phi Epsilon returned to 
school this fall with spirit. This spirit was given a boost 
when it was learned that they had received the Scholar- 
ship Trophy for having the highest accumulative average 
among fraternities for 1963-64. 

Rick Myers ably led the Student Government as Presi- 
dent of the Student Body, and Lynn Monday was elected 
Treasurer of the Student Government. Other Government 

officers were: Hugh Walker, Senior Boy Representative; 
Bill Climer, Junior Vice-President; Bill Lockerby, Sopho- 
more President; and Tim Oliver, Freshman Boy Repre- 
sentative. Rick Myers was selected to Who's Who Among 
Students in American Universities and Colleges; Bill Small- 
ing was selected Alpha Xi Delta Dream Man; and Hugh 
Walker was selected by the Student Body as Mr. T. W. C. 

This year, on the social agenda, we led off with our 
Annual Beatnik Party where the Pledges selected Miss 
Elaine Lewin as Pledge Princess. At Christmas we played 
Santa to a group of underprivileged children of Athens 
at our annual Christmas Party. Winter Quarter we honored 
Miss Harri Kay Brooks, our sweetheart, at the annual 
Sweetheart Dance. Also honored were the Queens of 
Hearts: Misses Kay Murray, Barbara Harrison, Susan 
Blackburn, and Lynne Woods. 

Spring quarter brought our Spring Banquet and Awards 
Night, which is the highlight of the year for the brothers 
of Sigma Phi Epsilon.

Pi Kappa Phi discusses plans for their first place skit. 

Kappa Delta's winning skit "Graduation Night: 


Greek Weekend, held during spring quarter, plays a tremendous role in strengthening 
the fraternity system at Tennessee Wesleyan College. 

The activities of 1964's Greek Weekend began with a Friday night skit competition. 
From among the sororities, Kappa Delta won first place with the theme "Graduation Night." 
Sigma Kappa sorority took second place. Pi Kappa Phi took first position among the frater- 
nities; Phi Sigma Kappa, second. 

Field events on Saturday included egg-tossing, sack-racing, three-legged racing, etc. for 
the girls. Alpha Xi Delta sorority emerged victorious as close competition prevailed. The 
fraternities engaged in more strenuous activities. Phi Sigma Kappa was for the second con- 
secutive year tops in field events. 

Saturday night featured a banquet and dance as a finale of a memorable weekend. Tro- 
phies were awarded to the winners of the earlier competitions, and Greek King and Queen 
were announced. Milton Mcllwain of Sigma Phi Epsilon reigned as King and Harri Kay 
Brooks of Alpha Xi Delta was Queen. Other nominees for Queen were: Sue Ella Hankins, 
Kappa Delta; Linda Buttram, Sigma Kappa. Nominees for King were: Jack Edmonds, Pi 
Kappa Phi; and Joe Bowden, Phi Sigma Kappa.

The Panhellenic Council is the governing body of so- 
rority life on the Wesleyan campus, making all the rules 
for rushing, pledging, and initiation concerning the 
sororities. The activities of "Greek Week" form an 
important part of the work of the Council. Two dele- 
gates from each of the three sororities make up the 
Council. The president of the Panhellenic Council is 
elected each year from the representative delegates. 


The Inter-Fraternity Council is set up to promote the 
fraternity system on the Wesleyan campus. The Council 
governs the fraternity rush rules, establishes committees 
for intramural athletics, and organizes the functions of 
"Greek Week." Three representatives from each of the 
three fraternities make up the Council, with a president 
elected independently each year by the IFC.

Lacking in height, but a bushel of hustle! 

That's the best way we can think of to describe the 
1964-65 edition of the team we call the Tennessee Wes- 
leyan College Bulldogs. Any other team so short on 
height in a conference that puts a premium on the big 
man might have fallen into mediocrity, but not the 

Bill Johnston, the soft-spoken senior from West Mil- 
ton, Ohio, absorbed a deep personal tragedy— the death 
of his infant son— but roared back to turn in some of 
the finest performances ever evidenced on the TWC 
boards. Even at 6' 5", Bill was often dwarfed by opposing 
players during the season, but always gave a good ac- 
count of himself. 

The other co-captain was the red-haired Kentuckian 
with the lazy gait, oF TD himself, Tommy Davis. Give 
him a shot and it usually ripped the netcords. The shot 
which never seemed to arch enough to clear the front 
rim, did more often than not. 

Larry Cunningham, Junior College transfer, also con- 
tributed a lion's share to the Bulldogs' success. The be- 
spectacled Indianan, who alternated between scaring the 
crowd and wowing them with his daringly reckless style 
of play, caused Coach Cate to take more than one deep 
breath during the season with an unorthodox shot which 
somehow twisted in with the special type of "English" 
which only Larry knows how to apply. 

Freshman Ronnie Barry made a name for himself on 
a nationwide scale with his outstanding field goal per- 
centage, and always seemed to come through with a 
clutch goal when it was needed most. Who will ever 
forget his hook shot in the tight moments of the 74-71 
loss to the Eagles?

All of the team spoke loudly at times, too, as Doug Raymer, Clyde Abernathy, 
Roy DeLotelle, David Hurd, John Lee, and Tommy Cain all had their moments 
of glory during the season. 

Then, going to the guards, we have "Mr. Cool" himself, John Saylors. The fancy 
dribbler, with the deadeye from the keyhole, probably evokes more confidence 
from the crowd than any other member of the team when he's dribbling the ball. 
Johnny never seemed to lose the ball, and if he found himself free at the head of 
the circle, it was nets for the basketball. 

Not since Jerry Edmonds made his debut as a freshman in 1958-59 has a fresh- 
man had such success as the other red-haired Caneyvillian, Bobby Davis. Folks who 
started calling him "Tommy's little brother" soon found he had a name, too, and 
knew him well before the season was over. Bob, playmaker supreme, shooter ex- 
traordinary, and foul-shooter superb, played well in every phase of the game— even 
rebounding— and if he leaves anything to be desired as a guard, it is yet to be dis- 

These are our boys— fellows we'd be proud to have represent us anywhere, both 
for their athletic ability and for their friendliness and good example of conduct, 
both on the floor and off during this school year. 

These are twelve nice fellows.

A tournament in football, basketball, volley-

In no other activity on campus does one find the spirit 
that is generated in Wesleyan's Intramural program. 
This program offers exercise and competitive sport to 
those individuals and groups who may or may not 
rate themselves as varsity or professional players.
