THE PRAYER OF OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

Father of Wisdom, Master of the Schools of Men, of 
Thine all-knowledge grant me this my prayer: that 
I MAY be wise in Thee. Sink Thou my foundations 
deep into Thy bosom until they rest upon the vast 
rock of Thy counsel. Lift Thou my walls into the 
clear empyrean of thy truth. cover me with the 
wings that shadow from all harm. lay my threshold 

IN HONOR AND MY LINTELS IN LOVE. SET THOU MY FLOORS 
IN THE CEMENT OF UNBREAKABLE FRIENDSHIP AND MAY MY 
WINDOWS BE TRANSPARENT WITH HONESTY. LEAD THOU UN- 
TO me, Lord God, those whom Thou hast appointed to 

BE MY CHILDREN, AND WHEN THEY SHALL COME WHO WOULD 
LEARN OF ME THE WISDOM OF THE YEARS, LET THE CRIMSON 
OF MY WINDOWS GLOW WITH THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. LET 
THEM SEE, O MY LORD, HlM WHOM THOU HAST SHOWN ME; 
LET THEM HEAR HlM WHOSE VOICE HAS WHISPERED TO ME 
AND LET THEM REACH OUT THEIR HANDS AND TOUCH HlM 
WHO HAS GENTLY LED ME UNTO THIS GOOD DAY. ROCK-RIB- 
BED MAY I STAND FOR THY TRUTH. LET THE STORMS OF 
EVIL BEAT ABOUT ME IN VAIN. MAY I SAFELY SHELTER THOSE 
WHO COME UNTO ME FROM THE WINDS OF ERROR. LET THE 
LIGHTNING THAT LIES IN THE CLOUD OF IGNORANCE BREAK 
UPON MY HEAD IN DESPAIR. MAY THE YOUNG AND THE PURE 
AND THE CLEAN-HEARTED PUT THEIR TRUST SECURELY IN ME 
NOR MAY ANY THAT EVER COME TO MY HALLS FOR GUIDANCE 
BE SENT ASTRAY. LET THE BLUE ASHLARS OF MY BREAST 
THRILL TO THE HAPPY SONGS OF THE TRUE-HEARTED AND MAY 
THE VERY HEART OF MY CAMPUS SHOUT FOR JOY AS IT FEELS 

the tread of those who march for god. all this i pray 
Thee; and yet this more: that there may be no stain 
upon my stones, forever. amen.

THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNIVERSITY* 
BOARD OF FOUNDERS 

The details of the management of Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity are handled by an Executive Committee of 
twenty-one men. The property is legally kept in trust 
by a Board of Trustees of seven men. The General 
Board of Directors meets at least once each year, at 
commencement time, on the university campus near 
Atlanta, to inspect the institution, to review all mat- 
ters of large importance in the University, and to 
give directions to the Executive Committee which is 
elected by them and from their number, and which at- 
tends to the details of management of the Institution 
between the meetings of the Board of Directors. Each 
member of the Board represents a gift of two thou- 
sand dollars or more to the University, or an annual 
gift of not less than $100.00. 

Thus there is no one associated with the ownership 
or control of the institution in an important capacity 
who is not making a personal sacrifice in its behalf. 

In many cases they represent groups, societies, 
churches or families who combined their gifts in the 
founding of the University. 

Prospective students will not fail to note the quality 
of these men, representing the thousands of men and 
women whose sacrifices and prayers have consum- 
mated this fine purpose. As representatives and gov- 
ernors of the Institution they will take pleasure in 
giving any inquirers information as to the aims and 
progress of the University.

HISTORICAL SKETCH 



The historical genesis of Oglethorpe University 
takes us back to the middle of the eighteenth century 
when, under the leadership of Presbyterian men, 
Princeton College was founded in New Jersey and rap- 
idly became the institution largely patronized by the 
young men from Presbyterian families all over the 
world. After a while the long distances which must 
be traveled by stage or on horseback, suggested the 
building of a similar institution under the auspices of 
Presbyterianism in the South. The movement began 
with the Spring meeting of Hopewell Presbytery in 
the year 1823, and eventuated in the founding of a 
manual training school, and this, in turn, became 
Oglethorpe College in 1835 when Midway Hill, in the 
suburbs of Milledgeville, then the capital of the State 
of Georgia, was chosen for the location of the insti- 
tution. Old Oglethorpe College was thus the first de- 
nominational college or university between the Atlan- 
tic and Pacific Oceans south of the Virginia line, and, 
of a right, claimed to be the Alma Mater of all that 
brilliant company of institutions which were born 
after her in this vast empire. 

The facilities of the old Oglethorpe were adequate 
for the time. The main building was probably the 
handsomest college structure in the Southeast when 
it was erected, and "contained the finest college chapel 
in the United States not excepting Yale, Harvard or 
Princeton." 

In the Faculty of the Institution may be found the 
names of men who are world-famous. Among these 
were Joseph Le Conte, the great geologist; James 
Woodrow, the brilliant and devoted Christian and

scientist; Samuel K. Talmadge, the eminent adminis- 
trator, and many others. It is, perhaps, the chief 
glory of Old Oglethorpe that after three years of in- 
struction she graduated Sidney Lanier in the famous 
class of 1860 and that he was a tutor to her sons un- 
til the spring of '61 when with the Oglethorpe cadets 
he marched away to the wars. Shortly before his 
death, Lanier, looking back over his career, remarked 
to a friend that the greatest intellectual impulse of his 
life had come to him during his college days at Ogle- 
thorpe through the influence of Dr. Woodrow. Her 
other eminent alumni include governors, justices, 
moderators of the General Assembly, discoverers, in- 
ventors and a host of honest, industrious and superb 
laborers for the highest ideals of humanity. 

Oglethorpe "died at Gettysburg," for during the 
war her sons were soldiers, her endowment was in 
Confederate bonds, and her buildings, used for bar- 
racks and hospital, were later burned. An effort was 
made to revive the institution in the 70's and to lo- 
cate it in Atlanta, but the evils of reconstruction days 
and financial disaster made the adventure impossible 
and unsuccessful, and after a year and a half of strug- 
gle the doors were closed for the second time. 

Only eighteen years have passed since the present 
movement to refound the university began and they 
have been years of financial disaster and utter tur- 
moil, yet the assets and subscription pledges of the in- 
stitution have passed the sum of one and a half mil- 
lion dollars as the result of unusual and self-sacrific- 
ing liberality on the part of over five thousand peo- 
ple. 

The corner stone of Oglethorpe University was laid 
on January 21, 1915, with her trustful motto engrav- 



18 Oglethorpe University 

ed upon it: "Manu Dei Resurrexit" (By the Hand 
of God She Has Risen From the Dead.) 

THE OPENING, SEPTEMBER 20, 1916 

Oglethorpe University opened her doors in the Fall 
of 1916. After fifty years of rest beneath the gray 
ashes of fratricidal strife she rose to breathe the airs 
of a new day. Her first building, constructed of gran- 
ite, trimmed with limestone, covered with slate and as 
near fireproof as human skill can make it, was ready 
for occupancy in the fall of 1916, when her first class 
gathered on her beautiful campus on Peachtree Road. 
A faculty equal to that of any cognate institution in 
the country has been formed. The work of raising 
funds and new construction goes steadily on. And all 
of this has been done in the midst of financial disas- 
ter that darkened the spirit of the whole nation, and 
against the evil influences of a colossal war, which 
caused the very joints of the world to gape. 

THE ROMANCE OF HER RESURRECTION 

The story of the resurrection of Oglethorpe reads 
like a romance. Beginning only eighteen years ago 
with a contribution of $100.00 a year for ten years 
from her present president, it soon gathered with it 
a band of great-hearted Atlanta men who determined 
to see that their city had a university, as well as a 
band of far-seeing educational leaders, who wished 
to erect a certain high type of institution in this splen- 
did metropolis. The story of how dollar was added to 
dollar during a campaign of four years ; of how no less 
than seventy Atlanta men gave each $1,000.00 or more 
to the enterprise; of how the story was told in 101 
cities, towns and country all over the South from Gal- 
veston, Tex., to Charlottesville, Virginia, and from 
Marshall, Missouri, to Bradenton, Fla.; each one of 



Oglethorpe University 19 

them giving $1,000.00 or more to the enterprise; the 
splendid triumph of the Atlanta campaigns; all this is 
well known. Since that time the same wonderful rec- 
ord has been maintained. There are now something 
like five thousand men, women and children all of 
whom have contributed or promised from fifty cents 
to $1,000,000. They are the Founders' Club which 
is carrying the movement forward so splendidly. 
HER ARCHITECTURAL BEAUTY 

An idea of the quality of construction and design of 
the institution may be gained from the accompanying 
illustrations. (See Frontispiece.) 

It will be seen that the architects and landscape 
artist spared no pains to make it one of the really 
beautiful universities of America. The architecture 
is Collegiate Gothic; the building material is a beau- 
tiful blue granite trimmed with limestone. All the 
buildings will be covered with heavy variegated 
slates. The interior construction is of steel, concrete, 
brick and hollow tile. The first building is the one on 
the right of the entrance seen in the foreground of 
the bird's eye view. The building, given by Dr. and 
Mrs. Lupton and their son, our beloved benefactors, 
is the one with the tower just opposite on the left of 
the entrance. Lowry Hall, the gift of Col. and Mrs. 
R. J. Lowry, stands completed at the end of the main 
axis directly in front of the entrance. The total cost 
of construction of the buildings shown in the above 
design with the landscape work required, will be ap- 
proximately $4,000,000. The building plan will be fol-

By the generosity of Mr. William Randolph Hearst, 
Oglethorpe is the possessor of one of the finest college 



20 Oglethorpe University 

campuses in the entire world. In the summer of 1929 
Mr. Hearst gave to the University the entire Silver 
Lake Estates, four hundred acres of primeval forest 
surrounding an eighty acre lake with something like 
five miles of graded roads winding through it. As 
this property immediately adjoins the two hundred 
acres already possessed by the University, the com- 
pleted campus consists of a body of six hundred acres 
of land in one tract in the immediate vicinity of At- 
lanta, on Peachtree Raod and on the main line of the 
Southern Railroad. This gift of Mr. Hearst provides 
for the University ample space for future development 
and protects its growth from encroachment by urban 
Atlanta whose suburbs are rapidly surrounding the 
campus. 

HERMANCE STADIUM 

During the summer of 1929 the first section of 
Hermance Stadium was erected at a cost of some- 
thing over $100,000. Like all the other Oglethorpe 
buildings it is constructed of granite, trimmed with 
carved limestone. The seats are of reinforced con- 
crete. This first section which seats about five thou- 
sand, comprises approximately one-ninth of the total 
seating capacity. When completed it will have cost 
something like $750,000 and will have a seating capac- 
ity of approximately that of the Roman Colosseum, 
45,000. It is named in honor of Dr. and Mrs. Harry 
P. Hermance, Hal Hermance and Miss Helena Her- 
mance, the donors. 

HER SPIRITUAL AND INTELLECTUAL IDEALS 

But it is not so much the magnificent exterior of 
the institution about which the men who are founding 
Oglethorpe are most concerned, it is the spiritual and 



Oglethorpe University 21 

intellectual life of their university. To that end they 
have resolved to maintain a faculty and a curricu- 
lum that will be of the highest possible quality, their 
thought being excellence in every department. They 
will take the superb traditions of the old Oglethorpe 
and add the best of this present age to them. 

FOUNDERS' BOOK 

In the Founders' Room at Oglethorpe there will be 
a Book containing the name of every man, woman and 
child who aided in the founding of the University, 
arranged alphabetically, by states. That Book will 
be accessible to every student and visitor who may 
want to know who it was from his or her home that 
took part in the doing of this, the greatest deed that 
has been attempted for our sons and daughters in 
this generation. The Book is not yet complete, be- 
cause the work is not yet finished, and each month is 
adding many to this roll of honor, whose name will 
thus be preserved in the life and archives of Ogle- 
thorpe University forever. 



CLOCK AND CHIMES 

In the tower of the new building given by Dr. and 
Mrs. J. T. Lupton, is installed a clock and chimes, 
with three dials, ten bells and night illumination, the 
gift of friends of the University. It is interesting to 
note that this is the only chimes on any college cam- 
pus in Georgia. Concerts on the chimes are given 
daily and are broadcast over station WJTL. 



22 Oglethorpe University 



RADIO STATION 



By the generosity of Dr. John Thomas Lupton, 
there has been installed in Lupton Hall a complete 
Radio Broadcasting Station, WJTL, the Radio Division 
of Oglethorpe University. The purpose of the instal- 
lation was to enable the University to reach thousands 
of persons in and around the city of Atlanta who can- 
not conveniently attend college on the campus of the 
University but who desire to take courses with or 
without matriculation for college degrees and credits. 

Station WJTL was installed and began operation on 
May 24, 1931 and a complete statement of its scope and 
of the courses offered will be found elsewhere in this 
catalog.

THE FACULTY OF THE UNIVERSITY 

The Board of Directors of Oglethorpe University, 
realizing the responsibility upon them of selecting a 
faculty whose spiritual and intellectual equipment 
should be capable of satisfying the tremendous de- 
mand of a really great institution of learning, has 
spared no effort or pains in securing a body of men 
who would not only possess that first requisite of a 
teacher, a great soul, but should also have those two 
other requisites of almost equal importance: power 
of imparting their ideals and knowledge, and intellec- 
tual acquirements adequate for their department. 
The most important element in education is the creat- 
ing in the student of an intense yearning for and de- 
light in the Good, the True, and the Beautiful, and 
the first essential for the creation of such a spirit is 
the example set before him by the Faculty. The ob- 
ject of an Oglethorpe education is to furnish the stu- 
dent with deeper thoughts, finer emotions and nobler 
purposes to the end that he may more clearly under- 
stand, more fully enjoy and more excellently behave 
in the world. It has been the purpose of the Board 
of Directors in making their selection of members of 
the faculty to choose them from as many different 
sections of America as possible, thus providing a rep- 
resentative and cosmopolitan American corps of 
teachers.

IMMEDIATE PURPOSE AND SCOPE 

The purpose of Oglethorpe University is to offer 
courses of study leading to the higher academic and 
professional degrees, under a Christian environment, 
and thus to train young men who wish to become spe- 
cialists in professional and business life and teach- 



34 Oglethorpe University 

ers in our high schools and colleges, and to supply 
the growing demand for specially equipped men in 
every department of human activity. 

Students who are looking forward to university 
work are invited to correspond with the President, in 
order that they may prepare themselves for the ad- 
vanced courses which are to be offered. 

Adequate library and laboratory facilities are pro- 
vided. Free use is made of the city of Atlanta, in 
itself a remarkable laboratory of industrial and scien- 
tific life, whose museums, libraries and municipal 
plants are at the disposal of our students for obser- 
vation, inspection and investigation. 

A glance at the frontispiece of the catalogue, show- 
ing a bird's-eye view of the University, gives the stu- 
dent an idea of the quality of the buildings and the 
lay-out of the campus. This campus consists of ap- 
proximately six hundred and fifty acres of land, in- 
cluding an eighty acre lake which is located in the 
nortwestern section of the campus. It is located on 
Peachtree Road, and immediately in front of the en- 
trance is the terminus of the Oglethorpe University 
street car line, and an attractive little stone station of 
the Southern Railway main line, between Atlanta and 
Washington. The first building to be located on the 
campus, the Administration Building, contains in the 
basement a dining room; on the ground floor, chem- 
istry and physics lecture rooms and laboratories and 
the Bursar's office and lounging room for young 
ladies attending the college; on the second and third 
floors, the hospital and dormitories. Lupton Hall con- 
sists of three separate structures which, combined, 
contain the library, the President's office, radio trans- 
mitting and broadcasting rooms, class rooms, dorm- 



Oglethorpe University 35 

itories, an Assembly Hall seating approximately six 
hundred, equipped also as a theatre for the pres- 
entation of student dramas, and in the basement, bas- 
ketball court, swimming pool, lockers and showers, and 
quarters for the University Press. The University 
Press is equipped with a Babcock optimus press, lino- 
type machine and two smaller presses, with a num- 
ber of type stands and other printing equipment 
given by a friend of the University. Lowry Hall 
houses the Lowry School of Banking and Commerce, 
and the Art studios. It is largely a replica of old Cor- 
pus Christi College, Oxford, the alma mater of James 
Edward Oglethorpe. It contains class rooms and dor- 
mitories, and will stand as a perpetual memorial to the 
generosity of Colonel R. J. Lowry and Emma Markham 
Lowry. 

STANDARDS FOR GEORGIA COLLEGES AND 
JUNIOR COLLEGES * 

The following standards have been adopted by the 
State Board of Education of Georgia. They are de- 
signed to serve two purposes: 

(a) A basis for granting charters to new or pro- 
posed higher educational institutions under the pro- 
visions of Section 14 of the Georgia School Code.** 

(b) A basis for preparing an approved list of teach- 
er-training institutions for the State of Georgia. 

It is not proposed that these standards should oper- 
ate to make it impossible for a worthy new enterprise 



* These standards have been adopted by Oglethorpe Univer- 
sity and are effective as of September 23rd 1931. 

** Section 14. No charter giving the right to confer degrees 
or issue diplomas shall be granted to any proposed institution 
of learning within the State of Georgia until the proper show- 
ing has been made to the State Board of Education that the pro- 
posed University, College, Normal, or Professional school shall 
give evidence of its ability to meet the standard requirements 
set up by the State Board of Education. 



36 Oglethorpe University 

to be begun, nor for a worthy institution now in oper- 
ation to be denied a fair opportunity for development. 

It is, therefore, agreed that: 

(a) In the case of proposed new institutions of 
higher learning, if the Board of Education is satisfied 
that such institution has a reasonable possibility of 
meeting these standards within three years, a provis- 
ional charter for three years may be granted, such 
charter to be made permanent if and when such insti- 
tution shall have met the conditions of these stand- 
ards. 

(b) In the case of institutions now in operation, the 
application of these standards shall not go into effect 
until after the expiration of three years from the date 
of the adoption of these standards. 

STANDARDS FOR COLLEGES 

1. Definition: 

A standard college, university, or technological in- 
stitution — designated as 'college' in this statement of 
standards is an institution: 

(a) Which is legally authorized to give non-profes- 
sional Bachelor's degrees; 

(b) Which is organized definitely on the basis of the 
completion of a standard secondary school cur- 
riculum ; 

(c) Which organizes its curricula in such a way that 
the early years are a continuation of, and sup- 
plement the work of the secondary school and at 
least the last two years are shaped more or less 
distinctly in the direction of special, profes- 
sional, or graduate instruction; 

(d) which is separate and distinct, both in faculty 
and operation, from any high school. 



Oglethorpe University 37 

2. Entrance or Admission: 

A college shall demand for admission of candidates 
for degrees the satisfactory completion of a four year 
course (16 units from a four year high school or 
twelve units from a three year senior high school) in 
a secondary school approved by a recognized accred- 
iting agency or the equivalent of such a course, as 
shown by examination. The major portion of the sec- 
ondary school course accepted for admission should be 
definitely correlated with the curriculum to which the 
student is admitted. 

Persons over 21 years of age, who do not meet re- 
quirements for admission, may be admitted to regular 
college courses if the authorities of the college are 
satisfied that such persons can carry the courses satis- 
factorily. These shall be classified as special students 
and shall not be admitted to candidacy for bachelor's 
degrees until all entrance credits shall have been satis- 
fied. 

3. Graduation. 

A college shall require for graduation the completion 
of a minimum quantitative requirement of 120 semes- 
ter hours of credit (or the equivalent in term hours, 
quarter hours, points, majors, or courses) with fur- 
ther qualitative requirements adapted by each insti- 
tution to its conditions. 

A semester hour is defined as a credit for work in a 
class which meets for at least one sixty-minute period 
(including ten minutes for change of classes) weekly 
for lecture, recitation, or test for a semester of 
eighteen weeks ( including not over two weeks for all 
holidays and vacations). Two hours of laboratory 
work should count as the equivalent of one hour of 
lecture, recitation, or test. 



38 Oglethorpe University 

4. Degrees: 

Small institutions should confine themselves to one 
or two baccalaureate degrees. When more than one 
baccalaureate degree is offered, all shall be equal in 
requirements for admission and graduation. Institu- 
tions of limited resources and inadequate facilities for 
graduate work should confine themselves to strictly 
undergraduate courses. 

5. Permanent Records: 

A system of permanent records showing clearly all 
credits (including entrance records) of each student 
shall be carefully kept. The original credentials filed 
from other institutions shall be retained. As far as 
possible, records of graduates should be kept. 

6. Size of Faculty and Number of Departments: 

A college of arts and sciences of approximately 100 
students should maintain at least eight separate de- 
partments with at least one professor in each devoting 
his whole time to that department. The size of the 
faculty should bear a definite relation to the type of 
institution, the number of students, and the number of 
courses offered. With the growth of the student body, 
the number of full-time teachers should be correspond- 
ingly increased. The development of varied curricula 
should involve the addition of other heads of depart- 
ments. 

7. Training of Faculty: 

Faculty members of professorial rank shall have not 
less than one full year of graduate work, majoring in 
the subject taught, in addition to a bachelor's degree 
from a fully-accredited college, and should have two 
years of training in an approved graduate school. 

The training of the head of each department shall 



Oglethorpe University 39 

be that represented by two full years of graduate work 
or its equivalent. 

8. Faculty Load: 

The number of hours of class room work given by 
each teacher will vary in different departments. To 
determine this, the amount of preparation required for 
the class and the amount of time needed for study to 
keep abreast of the subject, together with the number 
of students, must be taken into account. Teaching 
schedules, including classes for part-time students, ex- 
ceeding 18 recitation hours or their equivalent per 
week per instructor, will be interpreted as endangering 
educational efficiency. Sixteen hours is the recom- 
mended maximum load. 

9. Size of Classes: 

Classes (exclusive of lectures) of more than thirty 
students should be interpreted as endangering educa- 
tional efficiency. 

10. Financial Support: 

The minimum annual operating income for an ac- 
credited college, exclusive of payment of interest, an- 
nuities, etc., should be $30,000 of which not less than 
$15,000 should be derived from stable sources, other 
than students, such as permanent endowment, public 
funds, or church support. Increase in faculty, stu- 
dent body and scope of instruction should be accom- 
panied by a corresponding increase of income from 
such stable sources. The financial status of each col- 
lege should be judged in relation to its educational 
program. 

A college that does not have such support from en- 
dowment, church, state, or public sources must show, 
for a period of three consecutive years immediately 
preceding its application for accrediting, that its 



40 Oglethorpe University 

charges and expenditures are such as to show a min- 
imum average annual net surplus of not less than 
$15,000 from non-educational services, such as board, 
room rents, etc., which may be used to supplement 
tuition fees. 

11. Library: 

A college should have a live, well-distributed, ade- 
quately housed library of at least 8,000 volumes, ex- 
clusive of public documents, bearing specifically upon 
the subjects taught, administered by a full-time pro- 
fessionally trained librarian, and with a definite an- 
nual appropriation for the purchase of new books. 

12. Laboratories: 

The laboratory equipment shall be adequate for all 
the experiments called for by the courses offered in 
the sciences, and these facilities shall be kept up by 
means of an annual appropriation in keeping with the 
curriculum. 

13. General Equipment and Buildings: 

The location and construction of the buildings, the 
lighting, heating, and ventilation of the rooms, the 
nature of the laboratories, corridors, closets, water 
supply, school furniture, apparatus, and methods of 
cleaning shall be such as to insure hygienic conditions 
for both students and teachers. 

14. Proportion of Students Candidates for Degrees: 
No institution shall be admitted to the accredited 

list, or continued more than one year on such list, un- 
less it has a college registration of at least 100 regular 
students. A notably small proportion of college stu- 
dents registered in the third and fourth years will 
constitute ground for dropping an instution from the 
accredited list. 

At least 75 per cent of the students in a college 



Oglethorpe University 41 

should be pursuing courses leading to baccalaureate 
degrees. Provided, however, that this shall not apply 
to students enrolled in extension, correspondence, or 
other similar departments, not in regular course for a 
degree, in an institution which otherwise meets these 
standards. 

15. Character of the Curriculum: 

The character of the curriculum, the standards for 
regular degrees, the conservatism in granting honor- 
ary degrees, provision in the curriculum for breadth 
of study and for concentration, soundness of scholar- 
ship, the practice of scientific spirit including freedom 
of investigation and teaching, loyalty to facts, and en- 
couragement of efficiency, initiative and originality in 
investigation and teaching, the tone of the institution, 
including the existence and culture of good morals and 
ideals, and satisfaction and enthusiasms among stu- 
dents and staff shall be factors in determining its 
standing. 

16. Extra-Curricular Activities: 

The proper administration of athletics, student pub- 
lications, student organizations, and all extra-curricu- 
lar activities, is one of the fundamental tests of a 
standard college and, therefore should be considered in 
classification. 

17. Professional and Technical Departments: 

When the institution has, in addition to the college 
of arts and sciences, professional or technical depart- 
ments, the college of arts and sciences shall not be ac- 
cepted for the approved list of the State Department 
of Education unless the professional or technical de- 
partments are of approved grade, national standards 
being used when available. 



42 Oglethorpe University 

18. Inspection and Reports: 

Filing of Blank — No institution shall be placed on 
the approved list unless a regular information blank 
has been filed with the State Department of Education. 
The blank shall be filed again for each of the three 
years after the college has been approved, and trien- 
nially thereafter, but the Department may for due 
cause call upon any member to file a new report at any 
time. Failure to file the blank as required shall be 
cause for dropping an institution. 

Inspection — No college will be placed on the ap- 
proved list until it has been inspected and reported 
upon by an agent or agents regularly appointed by the 
State Department of Education. All colleges accred- 
ited by the Department shall be open to inspection at 
any time. 

STANDARDS FOR JUNIOR COLLEGES 

(This is printed for the benefit of prospective students who 
expect to present credits from schools of junior college rank.) 

1. Definition. 

The junior college, in its present development, comprises 
different forms of organization. First, a two-year institution 
embracing two years of collegiate work in advance of the com- 
pletion of an accredited secondary school course. The two-year 
curricula of this type shall be equivalent in prerequisites, 
methods, and thoroughness to those offered in the first two years 
of an accredited four-year college. Second, an institution em- 
bracing two years of standard collegiate work as defined above 
integrated with one or two contiguous years of fully accredited 
high-school work administered as a single unit. 

2. Entrance or Admission. 

A junior college shall demand for admission to the first col- 
legiate class the satisfactory completion of a four year course 
(15 units from a four year high school or twelve units from a 
three year senior high school) in a secondary school approved 
by a recognized accrediting agency or the equivalent of such a 



Oglethorpe University 43 

course shown by examination. The major portion of the sec- 
ondary school course accepted for admission should be definitely 
correlated with the curriculum to which the student is admitted. 
For entrance to terminal or finishing courses in the two-year 
junior college or the upper division of the four-year junior col- 
lege the equivalent of fifteen units should be required. This 
equivalent may be demonstrated by entrance examinations, 
ability tests, or by the proven ability of the student to profit 
by the instruction offered. 

3. Graduation. 

A junior college shall require for graduation the completion 
of a minimum quantitative requirement of 60 semester hours 
of credit (or the equivalent in term hours, quarter hours, points, 
majors, or courses) with further qualitative requirements adap- 
ted by each institution to its conditions. 

A semester hour is defined as a credit given for work in a 
class which meets for at least one sixty-minute period (in- 
cluding ten minutes for change of classes) weekly for lecture, 
recitation, or test for a semester of eighteen weeks (including 
not over two weeks for all holidays and vacations). Two hours 
of laboratory work should count as the equivalent of one hour 
of lecture, recitation, or test. 

4. Degrees. 

No junior college shall grant degrees. 

5. Permanent Records. 

A system of permanent records showing clearly all credits 
(including entrance records) of each student shall be carefully 
kept. The original credentials filed from other institutions 
shall be retained. As far as possible, records of gradutes should 
be kept. 

6. Size of Faculty and Number of Departments. 

The junior college shall offer instruction in at least five sep- 
arate departments. There shall not be fewer than five teachers 
employed specifically for instruction in the upper level of the 
junior college, giving the major portion of their time to such 
instruction. 

7. Training of Faculty. 

The training of the members of the faculty shall include at 



44 Oglethorpe University 

least one year of graduate study majoring in the subject to be 
taught, together with evidences of successful experience of ef- 
ficiency in teaching. 

8. Faculty Load. 

The number of hours of class room work given by each teach- 
er will vary in different departments. To determine this, the 
amount of preparation required for the class and the amount 
of time needed for study to keep abreast of the subject, together 
with the number of students, must be taken into account. 
Teaching schedules including classes for part-time students, ex- 
ceeding 18 recitation hours or their equivalent per week per 
instructor, will be interpreted as endangering educational ef- 
ficiency. Sixteen hours is the recommended maximum load, 
When a teacher devotes part-time to high school instruction 
and part-time to college instruction his load shall be computed 
on the basis of one high school unit for there year hours. 

9. Size of Classes. 

Classes (exclusive of lectures) of more than thirty students 
should be interpreted as endangering educational efficiency. 

10. Financial Support. 

The minimum annual operating income for an accredited 
junior college, exclusive of payment of interest, annuities, etc., 
should be $20,000 of which not less than $10,000 should be de- 
rived from stable sources, other than students, such as per- 
manent endowment, public funds, or church support. Increase 
in faculty, student body, and scope of instruction should be ac- 
companied by a corresponding increase of income from such 
stable sources. The financial status of each junior college should 
be judged in relation to its educational program. 

A junior college that does not have such support from en- 
dowment, church, state, or public sources must show, for a 
period of three or more consecutive years immediately pre- 
ceding its application for accrediting, that its charges and ex- 
penditures are such as to show a minimum average annual net 
surplus of not less than $10,000 from non-educational services, 
such as board, room rents, etc., which may be used to supple- 
ment tuition fees. 

11. Lib vary. 

A junior college should have a live, well-distributed, ade- 



Oglethorpe University 45 

quately housed, library of at least 3,000 volumes, exclusive of 
public documents, bearing specifically upon the subjects taught, 
administered by a full-time professionally trained librarian, 
and with a definite annual appropriation for the purchase of 
new bookss. 

12. Laboratories. 

The laboratory equipment shall be adequate for all the ex- 
periments called for by the courses offered in the sciences, and 
these facilities shall be kept up by means of an annual appro- 
priation in keeping with the curriculum. 

13. General Equipment and Buildings. 

The location and construction of the buildings, the lighting, 
heating, and ventilation of the rooms, the nature of the labor- 
atories, corridors, closets, water supply, school furniture, ap- 
paratus, and methods of cleaning shall be such as to insure 
hygienic conditions for both students and teachers. 

14. Number of Students. 

No institution shall be admitted to the accredited list, or con- 
tinued more than one year on such list, unless it has a regular 
college registration of at least fifty students. A notably small 
proportion of students registered in the final year, continued 
over a period of several years, will constitute ground for drop- 
ping an institution from the accredited list. 

15. Character of the Curriculum. 

The character of the curriculum, the standards for regular 
degrees, the conservatism in granting honorary degrees, pro- 
vision in the curriculum for breadth of study and for concen- 
tration, soundness of scholarship, the practice of scientific 
spirit including freedom of investigation and teaching, loyalty 
to facts, and encouragement of efficiency, initiative and origi- 
nality in investigation and teaching, the tone of the institution, 
including the existence and culture of good morals and ideals, 
and satisfaction and enthusiasms among students and staff shall 
be factors in determining its standards. 

16. Extra-Curricidar Activities. 

The proper administration of athletics, student publications, 
student organizations, and all extra-curricular activities is one 
of the fundamental tests of a standard college and, therefore, 
should be considered in classification. 



46 Oglethorpe University 

17. Professional and Technical Departments. 

When the institution has, in addition to the college of arts 
and sciences, professional, or technical departments, the junior 
college shall not be accepted for the approved list of the State 
Department of Education unless the professional or technical 
departments are of approved grade, national standards being 
used when available. 

1%. ..Inspection and Reports. 

Filing of Blank — No institution shall be placed on the ap- 
proved list unless a regular information blank has been filed 
with the State Department of Education. The blank shall be 
filed again for each of the three years after the college has been 
approved, and triennially thereafter, but the Department may 
for due cause call upon any member to file a new report at any 
time. Failure to file the blank as required shall be cause for 
dropping an institution. 

Inspection — No college will be placed on the approved list 
until it has been inspected and reported upon by an agent or 
agents regularly appointed by the State Department of Ed- 
ucation. All colleges accredited by the Department shall be 
open to inspection at any time. 

COURSES OF INSTRUCTION AND REQUIRE- 
MENTS FOR DEGREES 

In the session of 1931-32 Oglethorpe University will 
offer courses in the undergraduate classes of six 
schools leading to the customary academic degrees. 
The degree of Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) in the Liberal 
Arts will be conferred upon those students satisfactor- 
ily completing a four years' course as outlined below, 
based largely on the study of the Humanities. The 
degree of Bachelor of Arts in Science will be conferred 
upon those students who satisfactorily complete a 
four years' course largely in scientific studies. The 
degree of Bachelor of Arts in Literature and Journ- 
alism will be given to those students who complete a 
course including work in languages, literature and 
journalism. The degree of Bachelor of Arts in Com- 



Oglethorpe University 47 

merce will be conferred upon those students who satis- 
factorily complete a full four years' course in studies 
relating particularly to business administration. The 
degree of Bachelor of Arts in Education will be confer- 
red upon those students who complete the studies in 
the School of Education. The Degree of Bachelor of 
Arts in Secretarial Preparation will be conferred upon 
those students who complete the studies in that School. 

By a careful study of the courses outlined below, the 
student will be easily able to make the choice most 
suitable to his tastes and probable future life. 

In general, it may be suggested that students 
preparing to enter such professions as the ministry 
or law, will choose the A.B. course in Liberal Arts; 
those looking forward to medicine, dentistry and other 
scientific work, the A.B. course in Science; those ex- 
pecting to enter the literary and journalistic field, the 
A. B. Course in Literature, and those who intend to 
spend their lives in the business world, the A. B. course 
in Commerce, or the A. B. course in Secretarial Prep- 
aration ; those who expect to teach, the A. B. course in 
Education. 

While each of these courses is so shaped as to in- 
fluence the student towards a certain end, colored 
largely by the type of studies, yet each course will 
be found to include such subjects of general culture 
as are necessary to the making of a life as distin- 
guished from a living. 

Graduates of standard normal schools or junior col- 
leges are admitted to the junior class. 

EXAMINATIONS, CREDITS, GRADUATION 

Effective with the class entering September, 1931, 
the new Oglethorpe plan of credits and examinations 



48 Oglethorpe University 

will go into effect. The traditional four year course of 
study will be divided into two groups. The first two 
years of work will be designated as the College Divis- 
ion, and the remaining two years of work as the Uni- 
versity Division. The teaching will be as heretofore 
with similar schedules, with the customary lectures, 
laboratory work, quizzes, and examinations. But the 
marks attained at the close of the term are not entered 
as credits for graduation, — only as an indication to the 
student and the instructor of the character of work 
being done. When the student appears to have satis- 
factorily completed two years of work he will be rec- 
ommended by the Dean of his department to the Fac- 
ulty for a final, comprehensive examination, both writ- 
ten and oral, on all subjects taken. Upon the satisfac- 
tory completion of this test he will be awarded a certi- 
ficate stating that he has completed the College Di- 
vision of studies and may be admitted to the Univer- 
sity Division. The same plan will be followed in the 
University Division. Upon completion of a satisfac- 
tory comprehensive examination the degree and di- 
ploma will be conferred. It is believed that the new 
system will incite the student to select and coordinate 
his course of study as a whole, and to master it. The 
inferior student will stand small chance of passing the 
comprehensive examinations. In fact, he will not even 
be recommended by his Dean for the examination, but 
will be asked to do additional and better work to qual- 
ify himself for graduation. Under the new plan cheat- 
ing, cramming, and coasting will be less of a tempta- 
tion, as ill gotten marks will avail nothing on the final 
comprehensive examination. The new plan will be an 
incentive to mastery and excellence. 



Oglethorpe University 49 

UNIVERSITY EXPENSES 
Tuition 

Effective for all students entering Oglethorpe on and 
after September 1931, the tuition fees charged by the 
University are the same in all departments and in all 
schools, and are based upon the actual amount of in- 
struction given to the student as measured by the time 
devoted thereto by the instructors. The figure set is 
$5.00 per term for each one hour per week. The 
courses offered at the University usually run two, 
three, or four hours per week. The charge per term 
(approximately three months) for each one hour per 
week course (usually called a minor) is $5.00. The 
charge per term for each two hour per week course is 
$10.00. The charge for each three hour per week 
course for one term is $15.00. The charge per term 
for each four hour per week course is $20.00 and the 
charge per term for each seven hour per week course is 
$35.00. Other courses in exact proportion. The charges 
for work done in the laboratories, art departments, 
etc., is one-half of above rates. Inasmuch as a complete 
college and University course of four years, more or 
less, calls for 66 week hours of instruction, equal to 66 
minors, the total charge for the four years, more or 
less, of instruction, including tuition, laboratory and 
other college fees is approximately $247.50 per year. 
The tuition charge includes tickets to all athletic 
games played on the campus and to the annual per- 
formance of the Oglethorpe Players Club. 

Board and Room Rent 

The dormitory facilities of Oglethorpe University 
are the safest and most comfortable of those of cog- 
nate institutions in the South. All permanent buildings 



50 Oglethorpe University 

of the University will be like those now finished, which 
are believed to be absolutely fireproof, being con- 
structed of steel, concrete and granite with partitions 
of brick and hollow tile. 

The prices named below are based upon two grades 
of rooms. The first of these comprises the entire third 
floor of the Administration building, the third floor 
of Lupton Hall, and the second and third floors of 
Lowry Hall, divided into individual rooms, with gen- 
eral toilet and bath on the same floor. Each room con- 
tains a lavatory furnishing hot and cold water. The 
second grade is that of the second floor of the Admin- 
istration building, and is composed of suites of rooms, 
each suite containing a bedroom, bath and study. The 
price charged includes first class board, steam heat, 
electric lights, water and janitor's service, and all 
rooms are furnished adequately and substantially. 
Every room in the dormitories contains ample closet 
space. The rooms are large, airy, safe and comfortable. 

The furniture is of substantial quality and is ap- 
proximately the same for all rooms, including chif- 
fonier, study-table, single bed, springs and mattress 
for each student. 

Room linen and bed clothing will be furnished by 
the student. Applications for rooms should be filed 
at once. For reservation of room inclose $5.00 reser- 
vation fee, to be credited on first payment. 

The expenses at Oglethorpe University are made 
as low as the quality of instruction, of rooming accom- 
modations and of table fare will permit. No fees 
such as matriculation, library, hospital, contingent, 
athletic, etc., are charged. 

All students rooming in the dormitory are required 
also to board in the college refectory but any student 
not rooming on the college campus may take his meals 



Oglethorpe University 51 

in the University refectory upon payment monthly in 
advance of the regular charge for board, Students 
employed by the University must board and room on 
the campus. 

The charge for board and room rent combined is as 
follows : 

Administration Building, third floor; Lupton Hall, 
third floor; and Lowry Hall, second and third floor, 
$107.50 per term. Administration Building, second 
floor $127.50 per term. The charge for board alone 
is $81.50 per term. The cost of one meal ticket is 
$.50— three for $1.00. 

INFIRMARY 

The University maintains at all times an excellent 
infirmary, with a nurse in attendance, for the prompt 
treatment of accidents and of such cases of sickness 
as may occur. By this means prolonged and serious 
illness can often be prevented. There is a University 
physician who can be secured on short notice when his 
services are needed. Students whose medical needs 
exceed the facilities of the Infirmary find every re- 
quirement satisfied by the hospitals of the city. 

The University makes no charge to the students 
for infirmary service, which includes also the attend- 
ance of the college physician in the infirmary. In 
case of special illness requiring operations or the ser- 
vices of specialists, while the University frequently 
is able to secure reduced charges for our students, yet 
we assume no responsibility beyond such services as 
our college physician and college infirmary are able 
to render. 



52 Oglethorpe University 

DIRECTIONS TO NEW STUDENTS 

Students coming to Oglethorpe University from a 
distance should remember that Oglethorpe University 
has its own station on the main line of the Southern 
Railway between Atlanta and Washington. Tickets 
may be purchased and baggage checked to Oglethorpe 
University, Georgia, the station being immediately in 
front of the campus. Students coming to Atlanta over 
other lines may either re-check their baggage to the 
University station, or may have it delivered at a spe- 
cial rate by the Atlanta Baggage & Cab Company. In 
using the latter method mention should always be 
made of the special students' rate at the time the order 
is given. 

SUMMER SESSION 

The summer term of Oglethorpe University meets 
the requirements for regular students who desire to 
speed up their courses or make up work that is un- 
satisfactory. It also serves the large number of stu- 
dents in the down town courses and teachers working 
toward some degree. 

All summer courses are credited toward the attain- 
ment of a degree, and afford a convenient way to push 
up by one year the date of graduation. The down 
town students can do more than the work usually 
done in the extension courses during the year. It can 
be so planned that a teacher in or near Atlanta can in 
twelve calendar months finish the regular year of 
work. 

GRADUATE SCHOOL 

It is the purpose of Oglethorpe University to de- 
velop a thoroughly excellent Graduate School, offering 
courses in all departments leading to the Master's de- 



Oglethorpe University 53 

gree. In supplying this need, which has for a long 
while been acutely felt in the South, the management 
of the University will be content with only the very 
highest grade of work and facilities. 

Courses leading to the Master's degree in certain 
departments will be found outlined elsewhere in this 
catalogue under the appropriate department heading. 
This degree is based upon that of Bachelor of Arts of 
Oglethorpe University or of some other approved in- 
stitution. The candidate must have an aggregate of 
fifteen hours/wf graduate work, with at least two Pro- 
fessors; twoTr i ic hours must be done with Oglethorpe. 
In addition a thesis is required. But the degree is not 
guaranteed at the end of a fixed period of time. A cer- 
tain amount of work must be accomplished, and the 
quality of it must be such as to satisfy the Professors 
concerned and the whole Faculty. During the past 
three years the University has established several cen- 
ters of study in the city of Atlanta. Hundreds of 
the Atlanta teachers have been enrolled in these 
courses. At each center as much as six hours' work 
per week has been done, this making possible the at- 
tainment of a previously incompleted Bachelor's or 
Master's degree. This opportunity will be continued 
during the next year. 

In this connection, the prospective student will be 
interested in learning that all Professors chosen as 
the heads of departments in Oglethorpe University 
must have obtained the highest academic degree offer- 
ed in that department. This fact is mentioned in or- 
der to indicate the earnest determination of the Board 
of Directors of the University that her Faculty shall 
include only men of the highest intellectual attainment 
as well as men of great teaching power and strong per- 
sonal character. 



54 Oglethorpe University 

The President of the University will be pleased to 
answer any inquiries as to graduate courses to be of- 
fered. 

SCHOOL OF LIBERAL ARTS

If three minors are taken, one must be studied for 
two years, and each of the others for one year. 

If Latin be chosen as the major, Greek must be 
taken as one of the minors. If Greek be taken as the 
major, Latin shall be one of the minors. 

A student must have at least one year of German 
and one year of French, either in High School or in 
College. 

Any subject above enumerated that has been 
studied in High School shall be replaced by some elec- 
tive. 

THE LOWRY SCHOOL OF BANKING AND 
COMMERCE 

Leading to the degree of A.B. in Commerce 

The aim of all instruction in the Lowry School of 
Banking and Commerce is to furnish the general basis 
of business facts, standards and theory which the be- 
ginner finds it difficult or impossible to acquire in his 
early business experience. It avoids any pretense of 
covering fully the practical details and routine and the 
special technique of the particular business or industry 
which he will enter. 

The Lowry School offers two regular courses of 
study, the General Business Course and the Account- 
ing course. The aim is to concentrate upon the fun- 
damentals of business and with this in view every stu- 
dent is required to obtain a thorough knowledge of the 
basic subjects including accounting, finance, econom- 
ics, and business law. 

Those intending to teach commerce subjects in pub- 
lic high schools should take a sufficient number of

SCHOOL OF EDUCATION 

Leading to the Degree of Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) in 
Education 

The school of Education is both an undergraduate 
and also a graduate school. A number of graduates 
from such schools in Oglethorpe University as well 
as other colleges have entered the teaching profession. 
Much of the work being psychological and humanis- 
tic, the discipline of this school is a preparation for 
various lines of work besides that of teaching. This 
school is a good preparation dealing with all forms 
of human contact sides of life work. We especially 
recommend the courses in shorthand and typewriting 
to be taken as part of the electives in Junior or Senior 
years or earlier by substitution, for secretarial careers, 
or commercial teaching in high schools.

PRE-PROFESSIONAL COURSES 

Students who are contemplating the profession of 
law or dentistry and who do not desire to study for an 
academic degree, are allowed to take such work as will 
prepare them for entrance to professional schools. In 
addition to the required high school units for college 
entrance, professional students must complete one or 
more years of college work, according to the require- 
ments of the institution that they are planning to 
enter. The attention of the prospective student, how- 
ever, should be called to the fact that each year finds 
it more necessary for the professional man to have a 
thorough foundation for his professional studies, and 
the professional schools are becoming more strict in 
their requirements for entrance. Particularly is this 
the case in medicine where the best colleges require a 
diploma from a standard college for entrance. Having 
this in mind Oglethorpe University has discontinued 
its two year pre-medical course and we strongly advise 
our students of medicine to have their college diploma 
safely in hand before they begin their professional 
studies. The course which we recommend for them is 
that leading to Bachelor of Arts in Science, outlined 
on page 61.

Journalism.

tervening period. The study will include the mastery 
of the history contained in the Bible, an analysis of 
each book, and such other matters as are required 
for the proper understanding of the work. It will 
be treated not from a sectarian point of view, nor as 
mere history or literature. The aim will be to impart 
such a knowledge of the subject as every intelligent 
man should possess, enabling him to read his Bible 
with pleasure and profit. 

The effort will be made to give the students the 
proper defense of seeming difficulties in the Bible, both 
for their own benefit, and that they may be able to 
meet the objections of unbelievers.

Philosophy, the President of the University will meet 



96 Oglethorpe University 

the Senior Class one hour per week, Tuesday, at 11 :30, 
in a seminar covering a story of human life following 
the broad outlines of Astronomy, Geology, Paleontol- 
ogy, Embryology, Anthropology and Archaeology. The 
course closes with a study of the first ten chapters of 
Genesis in relation to modern discoveries. It is es- 
pecially designed to give the graduates of Oglethorpe 
University a conception of the harmony between re- 
ligion and modern science and is required of all Sen- 
iors. It is believed that this work of co-ordination of 
modern science with religion can best be done in the 
senior class, to the end that in harmonizing the truths 
learned their faith may not be unsettled. 

STENOGRAPHY AND TYPEWRITING 

Dr. Burrows Thelma Brogdon Willie Woodall 

Stenography 211-2-3. A study of the principles of 
Gregg shorthand with dictation practice. The re- 
quirement for a passing grade for the third term is a 
demonstration of ability to write 100 words per minute 
in new matter. The testing is in accordance with 
standard national usage. In addition to acquiring skill, 
methods of teaching are given considerable attention, 
as many taking this subject are preparing for teaching 
commercial subjects. Students deficient in their Eng- 
lish are advised not to take up this subject until the 
English deficiency is removed. Five times per week. 
Four hours. 

Typewriting 111-2-3. The first term is devoted to 
a mastery of the standard keyboard by the touch 
method, with considerable attention to proper tech- 
nique, and a knowledge of the mechanism of the type- 
writer. If the student's work is satisfactory the first 
term he or she receives a grade, but no credit on the 



Oglethorpe University 97 

Registrar's books. For a passing grade and credit for 
the second term, a net speed of 30 words per minute 
must be attained after deductions have been made for 
errors, using the national standard. For a passing 
grade and credit for the third term a minimum net 
speed of 40 is required. Five times per week. Two 
hours. 

SELF-HELP 

Approximately fifteen per cent of the Oglethorpe 
student body are "working their way through college 
in whole or in part." 

It is the intention of the authorities of the Univer- 
sity to see that a way is provided as far as possible 
for the assistance of any student who may be in pe- 
cuniary need and yet desirous of prosecuting his 
studies at Oglethorpe. A special Faculty Committee 
will co-operate with students to that end. 

As a general rule it is best for the student that he 
should be able to devote all of his time to his academic 
duties, but where circumstances require it, many stu- 
dents may undertake various tasks, payment for which 
materially aids them in meeting their expenses. 

For further information address the President, 
Oglethorpe University. 

SPECIAL LOAN FUND 

By the generosity of a good friend who does not 
wish his name mentioned, the University is able to 
lend a limited sum to deserving students who would 
otherwise be unable to prosecute their studies at Ogle- 
thorpe. Further details upon application. 

ATHLETICS— HERMANCE FIELD 

The magnificent generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Harry 
P. Hermance in giving to Oglethorpe an Athletic Sta- 



98 Oglethorpe University 

dium, makes feasible the development of all forms of 
field sports, including not only the great games of 
football and baseball, but also vaulting, jumping, dis- 
cus and javelin throwing, track work, etc. Physical 
culture for all students will be required. 

A sanely encouraging attitude is taken by the Uni- 
versity toward intercollegiate athletics, and Ogle- 
thorpe University is acquitting herself well in that 
sphere of her educational life. 

SILVER LAKE 

In addition to those sports common to all well 
equipped colleges in the South, Oglethorpe University 
is the fortunate possessor of a beautiful lake covering 
eighty acres located conveniently to the University 
campus, with a part of its shores set aside for a univer- 
sity boat house. This will enable the institution to add 
a crew to its list of athletic sports. The lake is ad- 
mirably suited for boating, rowing, swimming and 
fishing. 

The policy of Oglethorpe University includes the 
care of the physical life of our students as a matter 
of large importance. Regular instruction, looking to 
symmetrical development of the entire man will be 
given in the Athletic Department of the University, 
under competent medical guidance. Special attention 
is at present given to "outdoor athletics. Adequate pro- 
vision is being made for football and baseball grounds, 
tennis courts, etc. Work has been begun on Hermance 
Stadium, and a section is now completed providing ac- 
commodations for five thousand spectators and partici- 
pants. 

UNIVERSITY STORE 

One of the interesting features of university life at 
Oglethorpe is the Petrel Shop operated by a group of 



Oglethorpe University 99 

students, under the superintendence of the Faculty. 

In the store are kept all necessary college acces- 
sories. Any ordinary purchase may thus be made 
most conveniently, as full lines of goods answering the 
various college requirements are constantly kept on 
hand. 

MORAL AND RELIGIOUS ATMOSPHERE 

The ability of a college or university to develop 
worthy character in its students depends largely upon 
that indefinable quality called "college atmosphere." 
As a mother, she breathes her own soul into her boys. 
They inherit all she has been through, all of labor and 
strength and faith and prayer. If her judgments 
have been bought out with money, they inherit that; 
if with blood, they inherit that. Every storm through 
which she has passed strengthens them for their own 
conflicts in the days that are to come. 

Oglethorpe is a daughter of battle and faith and 
prayer. God alone built her, touching the hearts of 
multitudes of His children at the voice of her call. 
Alone of all the prominent ante-bellum universities 
she died for her ideals and alone of all the universi- 
ties of America, God has raised her from the dead. 

By her every battle, her every faith, her every tri- 
umph, she has learned what things are really worth 
while and what hand really to lean upon. She will 
tell her children of Him. 

SPECIAL RELIGIOUS SERVICES 

Regular assembly exercises which the students are 
required to attend, are conducted by each of the mem- 
bers of the faculty in turn. The student life of Ogle- 
thorpe is also blessed by the activities of the Petrel 
Bible Class and frequent sermons and addresses by 
visiting pastors and evangelists.

LIBRARIES 

By the generosity of many friends, so great as to 
be almost unparalleled, and by purchase from special 
funds provided, the University received during the 
first year of its life approximately fifty thousand 
volumes for the library. These consist of stand- 
ard works in Literature, History and Science, with 
many valuable reference works in special departments. 
The private libraries of Dr. Sellers in Science, of Dr. 
Nicolassen in the Classics and of Dr. Burrows in Ed- 
ucation are all available for the use of the students in 
these departments. The policy of the institution is 
to let no year go without the enlargement of the 
library. A competent librarian is in charge and the 
rooms will be open during the year of 1931-32 ap- 
proximately ten hours per day. The Carneige Library 
of Atlanta is also available for the use of our students. 

KING LIBRARY OF ENGLISH 

By the splendid generosity of Dr. Cheston King the 
University has been given a Library of English incom- 
parably the finest south of Washington. The volumes 
for this library, including some seventeen thousand 
books and pamphlets, have been received, and are now 
available for graduate work. 

OGLETHORPE COAT-OF-ARMS 

Among the unique honors offered at the University 
is the presentation of a sweater with the Coat-of- 
Arms blazoned thereon, which will be awarded in the 
future under the terms of the following resolution 
unanimously adopted by the Faculty of the Univer- 
sity, upon recommendation of the President: 

"Resolved, that on and after September 1st, 1922, 
the Coat of Arms of Oglethorpe University shall be 
given to those students carrying a minimum of fifteen 



Oglethorpe University 



101 



hours weekly, of excellent personal character and 
conduct, whose general average of all the courses 
taken during five preceding consecutive terms shall 
have been not less than 93, or who, in lieu of said 
general average, shall have so distinguished them- 
selves in some intellectual, creative, or constructive 
accomplishment as to entitle them thereto in the 
judgment of the Faculty."

THE OGLETHORPE IDEA 

Quality is the word that expresses the Oglethorpe 
idea — quality in location, in climate, in campus, in ar- 
chitecture, in student character, in college life, in ath- 
letics and sports, in faculty, in curriculum and in re- 
ligion and morals. Every one of these we offer at 
Oglethorpe. 

Located in the commercial and educational capital 
of the South, with an unrivaled climate, on the most 
elegant street of that city, on a most beautiful cam- 
pus of over six hundred acres of woodland and mea- 
dow, including an eighty acre lake which belongs 
to our students for swimming, boating and fishing, the 
physical advantages offered by Oglethorpe University 
are unsurpassed anywhere in the section. 

One by one a splendid body of buildings is being 
erected on its campus. Every one of them will be 
of granite trimmed with limestone and covered with 
variegated slates. All of them will be as fire-proof 
as human skill can make them and as commodious and 
comfortable as our architects can plan them. They 
will be like the first buildings already erected, which 
are believed to be the safest, most beautiful and most 



Oglethorpe University 103 

efficient college or university buildings in the South- 
east. 

THE OGLETHORPE SITE— ATLANTA 

The attractions of the city of Atlanta as an educa- 
tional center are fast making it one of the great in- 
tellectual dynamos of the nation. Gifted with a soft, 
Southern mountain climate, convenient of access to 
the entire nation over its many lines of railway, 
known everywhere as the center of Southern activ- 
ities, she draws to herself as to a magnet the great 
minds of the nation and the world. Hither come lec- 
turers, musicians, statesmen, evangelists, editors, 
teachers and officials of the United States. An intel- 
lectual atmosphere created by such conditions and the 
frequent opportunity of contact with these leaders in 
all branches of human activity, offered frequently to 
our students, give Oglethorpe University an advantage 
of position and of opportunity which she will cultivate 
to the uttermost. Facilities for hearing and meeting 
the great musicians and authors and public speakers 
and the leaders in all spheres of intellectual activity 
are offered our students. The tremendous influence 
of such contact upon the young lives committed to us 
will be felt in increased ambition and redoubled de- 
termination to perform, themselves, their duty to 
their race and their God. 

THE SILENT FACULTY AT OGLETHORPE 

It is not going too far to say that the aesthetic 
tastes and home habits of many young men are ruined 
at college by the cheap and unattractive furnishings 
of their rooms and the ugly forbidding architecture 
of the buildings, whose walls often deface their cam- 
pus. The architecture of an institution of learning 
should be a constant source of delight and inspiration 



104 Oglethorpe University 

to its students, teaching quietly but surely the highest 
ideals of life. Indeed all those qualities of soul we 
know as honesty, solidity, dignity, durability, rever- 
ence and beauty may be expressed in the face of a 
building and are so expressed on the Oglethorpe 
campus. 

Not less important are the personal surroundings of 
the student's room. Cheap, ugly and ill-equipped apart- 
ments have exactly the same influence on the soul of 
a boy that cheap, ugly and ill-equipped human com- 
panions have. That is why the rooms at Oglethorpe 
are handsomely furnished. The sons of the poor are 
entitled to the information and inspiration such sur- 
roundings offer, and the sons of the rich will deter- 
iorate without them. 

In brief the college education that does not teach a 
love of beauty and tidiness and what is popularly called 
"decency," is essentially and dangerously defective. 

This is the special work of the silent faculty at 
Oglethorpe. 

THE EXCEPTIONAL OPPORTUNITIES OF OUR 
PERSONAL ATTENTION 

Young men who desire to enjoy the daily personal 
contact and instruction of the heads of departments 
will note with interest that Oglethorpe offers excep- 
tional opportunities of that nature. It is well known 
that in all our large institutions only the upper class- 
men come in any close contact with the full profes- 
sors, who as heads of departments occupy their time 
in other matters than educating Freshmen. 

We believe in giving our Freshmen the best we have, 
and they will be taught by men who have taught in or 
had offered them, chairs in the greatest universities 
of America. This will be a permanent policy at Ogle- 
thorpe. 



Oglethorpe University 105 

PUBLIC UTILITIES 

Oglethorpe University has the double advantage of 
being located in the suburbs of Atlanta, so far out as 
not to be subject to the distractions of city life, yet 
so near in as to enjoy all the public utilities of a great 
city. Among these are city water, electric lights, city 
trolley line, telephone and telegraph service, and in 
addition thereto the University has its own post- 
office, express office and railway station, all known as 
Oglethorpe University, Georgia. 

WOMAN'S BOARD 

One of the most remarkable gatherings, even in this 
city of remarkable gatherings, was the assembling of 
approximately two hundred of the representative 
women of the city of Atlanta at the home of President 
Thornwell Jacobs, Saturday afternoon, November 25, 
1916, to organize a Woman's Board for Oglethorpe 
University. 

The purpose of the Board is to aid the University 
in every wise and efficient way, with counsel of and 
guidance by the proper authorities of the institution. 
Already more than four hundred of the finest workers 
and most representative women of the city have of- 
fered their services and joined the organization. Their 
activities are directed toward the support and develop- 
ment of Oglethorpe in every phase of its growth and 
activities. Each of the ladies is assigned to the com- 
mittee on which she feels best able to serve. These 
committees cover the various departments of the Uni- 
versity, and among them are: Ways and Means, Fi- 
nance, Grounds, Press, Entertainment, Hospital, Music, 
Library, Arts, Refreshments, Transportation, and such 
other committees as it may seem wise to the Board 
from time to time to appoint. 



106 Oglethorpe University 

The authorities of the University welcome the for- 
mation of this organization with the greatest joy. 

The mere fact that they have promised a devoted 
allegiance to the enterprise has its own genuine value, 
but those who know the women of Atlanta, with their 
marvelous capacity for earnest and consecrated work 
directed by a swift and accurate intelligence, will 
realize what must be the results of the efficient aid 
which they are giving to the institution. 

The Woman's Board has established a permanent 
endowment fund and is being incorporated under the 
laws of Georgia in preparation for handling funds do- 
nated or bequeathed to the University through the 
Woman's Board. 

Officers and Chairmen of the various committees 
have been unanimously chosen as follows: 

Mrs. Haynes McFadden, President; Mrs. J. M. High, 
First Vice-President; Mrs. William Healey, Second 
Vice-President; Mrs. Frank Inman, Third Vice-Pres- 
ident; Mrs. J. Henry Porter, Fourth Vice-President; 
Mrs. James D. Robinson, Fifth Vice-President; Mrs. 
I. R. Carlisle, Recording Secretary; Mrs. B. F. Ulmer, 
Treasurer. Directors at Large: Mrs. E. Rivers, Mrs.

Vice-Chairman. Honorary Presidents: Mrs. J. T. Lup- 
ton, Mrs. Harry P. Hermance, Mrs. Jas. R. Gray, Sr.,

REVISED CHARTER OF 
OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

PETITION TO AMEND 

GEORGIA — Fulton County. 

The petition of Oglethorpe University respectfully shows: 

1. That by an order of this honorable court, petitioner was 
duly incorporated on the 6th day of May, 1913; to which pro- 
ceedings reference is made. 

2. That Paragraph 4 of said charter granted as aforesaid, 
is sought to be amended by enlarging the scope thereof, by 
substituting in lieu of the original Paragraph 4 the follow- 
ing: 

The corporate functions which shall mean the control of the 
property of the corporation, its purchase, sale and other dis- 
position shall be by a Board of Trustees of such number as 
may be provided in the by-laws; no one is or shall ever be 
eligible to membership on such board except a member in 
good standing of a Presbyterian or Reformed Church. This 
Board shall be elected from among those of the Board of 
Founders, hereinafter provided for, who shall possess the 
requisite qualifications. No mortgage, sale or other disposition 
of the real property of the corporation shall ever be made 
except by vote of the Board of Trustees in a regular meeting 
or in a special meeting called therefor. Notice must be given 
of the call for any such special meeting of the purpose to con- 
sider such disposition. 

There shall be a Board of Founders of such number as may 
be prescribed by the by-laws who shall be persons who have 
shown their interest in the purposes of the University by con- 
tributing thereto, or in whose behalf there has been contributed 
in cash, property, or solvent promises not less than one thou- 
sand dollars and who are of such character and with such 
interest in promoting religion, morality and education as fits 
them for membership. This board shall have the power and 
it shall be its duty to have control and supervision over the 
educational functions of the University, of its President, of- 
ficers, faculty, and courses of study; to elect from among its 
members the Board of Trustees; to borrow money but not to 
secure the same by lien on the real property; to elect from 
eligible persons successors of the present Board of Founders; 
to create an Executive Committee with authority to perform 
all its functions when the Board is not in session, as may be 
provided for in the by-laws and to perform generally the ad- 
ministrative functions of the University. The present Board 
of Trustees-Founders shall constitute the Board of Founders, 



124 Oglethorpe University 



whose members and their successors hold for life unless they 
are removed or resign. 

3. That at a regular meeting of the duly authorized of- 
ficers of the corporation held in accordance with the charter 
thereof, the aforesaid amendment was authorized as appears 
from a copy of the resolutions attached hereto, marked EX- 
HIBIT A. 

WHEREFORE, petitioner prays an order of this honorable 
court amending its charter as aforesaid. 

WATKINS, ASBILL & WATKINS, 
Attorneys for Petitioner. 
403-10 Atlanta Trust Co. Bldg. 

EXHIBIT "A" 

Resolved by the Board of Trustees-Founders of Oglethorpe 
University that paragraph 4, as it now reads in the original 
charter thereof dated May 6, 1913, be stricken and in lieu 
thereof, a new paragraph 4 shall be inserted as follows: 

The corporate functions which shall mean the control of 
the property of the corporation, its purchase, sale and other 
disposition shall be by a Board of Trustees of such number 
as may be provided in the by-laws; no one is or shall ever 
be eligible to membership in such board except a member 
in good standing of a Presbyterian or Reformed Church. This 
Board shall be elected from among those of the Board of 
Founders, hereinafter provided for, who shall possess the 
requisite qualifications. No mortgage, sale or other disposi- 
tion of the real property of the corporation shall ever be made 
except by vote of the Board of Trustees in a regular meeting 
or in a special meeting called therefor. Notice must be giv- 
en of the call for any such special meeting of the purpose to 
consider such disposition. 

There shall be a Board of Founders of such number as may 
be prescribed by the by-laws who shall be persons who have 
shown their interest in the purposes of the University by 
contributing thereto, or in whose behalf there has been con- 
tributed in cash, property or solvent promises not less than 
one thousand dollars and who are of such character and with 
such interest in promoting religion, morality and education as 
fits them for membership. This Board shall have the power 
and it shall be its duty to have control and supervision over 
the educational functions of the University, of its President, 
officers, faculty, and courses of study; to elect from among 
its members the Board of Trustees; to borrow money but not 
to secure the same by lien on the real property; to elect from 
eligible persons successors of the present Board of Founders; 
to create an Executive Committee with authority to perform 



Oglethorpe University ■ 125 



all its functions when the Board is not in session, as may be 
provided for in the by-laws and to perform generally the* ad- 
ministrative functions of the University. The present Board 
of Trustees-Founders shall constitute the Board of Founders, 
whose members and their successors shall hold for life unless 
they are removed or resign. 

Resolved further that the President of the Board of Trus- 
tees-Founders be authorized and directed to take the necessary 
steps to amend the Constitution of Oglethorpe University as 
herein before resolved. 

I, Joseph R. Murphy, Secretary, Board of Trustees-Foun- 
ders, Oglethorpe University, hereby certify that the above and 
foregoing resolutions were duly and legally passed at a legal 
meeting of the Board of Trustees-Founders of Oglethorpe 
University on the twenty-first day of October, 1926.

HISTORICAL 

(From a copy of the Milledgeville Journal, September 5, 1837. 
Presented to the University library by Miss Emma Thomas 
of Athens, Georgia, the great-granddaughter of Mr. B. P. 
Stubbs, Secretary, who signed the notice in behalf of the Ex- 
ecutive Committee.) 

OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

It has already been announced, that this Institution will 
commence its exercises on the first Monday of January, 1838. 
The Board of Trustees, while again calling public attention 
to this fact, offer some remarks in explanation to a new feature 
which they have given to its character. 

The University will consist of three departments, Collegiate, 
Academic, and Primary. 

Any person desirous of seeing the laws which govern the 
Collegiate department, can obtain a copy of the pamphlet con- 
taining them, by application to B. P. Stubbs, of this place, Sec- 
retary and Treasurer of the Board. 

Candidates for admission into the Freshman Class, must be 
prepared to stand an examination on Caesar's Commentaries, 
four books, Cicero's Select Orations, Mair's Introduction to 
Latin Syntax, the Gospels in the Greek Testament, Dalzel's 
Collections Graeca Minora, together with Latin and Greek 
Grammar, including Latin Prosody; also, on English Gram- 
mar, Arithmetic and Geography, ancient and modern. 

The course of instruction in the several classes, will be as 
follows, towit: 

Freshman Class 

WINTER SESSION SUMMER SESSION 

Cicero de Amicitia, Cicero de Officiis and Horace 
Graeca Majora, (Odes) 

Latin and Greek Exercises, Graeca Majora. 

Algebra (Davis), Latin and Greek Exercises 

Geography, Roman Antiquities.

(Priestley), History. 



Oglethorpe University 127 



Junior Class 

WINTER SESSION SUMMER SESSION 

Spherical Trigonometry, Integral Calculus (Young's) 
Analytic Geometry, (Includ- Natural Philosophy, 

ing Conic Sections) Cicero de Oratore, 

Descriptive Geometry, Longinus, 

Differential Calculus, Natural Theology, 

Nautical Astronomy, Logic. 
Evidences of Christianity,

Longinus,

(Provision will also be made for instruction in Modern 
Languages.) 

The Academic Department will consist of those who are 
preparing for entrance into this or any other college. 

The Primary Department will be composed of those pur- 
suing the ordinary branches of an English education. 

The students in these two departments, as well as the Col- 
legiate, will be instructed by the Faculty of the College. 

In consequence of this arrangement, boys, in the early stage 
of their literary course, will enjoy advantages perhaps un- 
surpassed in this country, as they will be taught by a regular 
Faculty, while the students of the college will receive the full 
amount of instruction ordinarily given them, as will be seen 
by a reference to the course of study. This system will vastly 
increase the labor of the Faculty; this labor they have how- 
ever consented to undergo. 

The adoption of this new plan has been caused by the pecu- 
liar state of the times. Though the amount on our subscrip- 
tion list is sufficient to warrant the commencement of the work 
in its original form, yet from the present state of affairs, it 
would have been more than indelicate to call upon many in- 
dividuals for their subscriptions. On the other hand, many 
parents have been making arrangements to send their sons to 
Midway during the next year. Such persons it would be 
painful to disappoint, yet it would be impossible to proceed 
for want of surplus in hand. The course now announced as 
being adopted, was then proposed — that is, to bring the Acad- 



128 Oglethorpe University 



emy and College under the government and instruction of the 
fame President and Professors. By this arrangement the ex- 
pense of the institution will be sustained, and all difficulties 
in its way removed. 

The Board of Trustees takes this occasion to say, that this 
year the Steward's Hall will be discontinued. This is done, 
that there may be no hindrance in the way of such persons as 
may wish to move to Midway for the purpose of taking 
boarders. 

The Trustees close this communication by suggesting to 
parents, (who desire their children to be educated, and who 
cannot afford to send them abroad for this purpose) the pro- 
priety of settling themselves at Midway. By taking boarders, 
the expenses of their family could be more sustained, and 
their children of all ages receive thorough and finished edu- 
cation. To others disposed to turn their attention to keeping 
boarders as a business, we would suggest that Midway offers 
inducements inferior to few if any other positions at the South 
— a healthy and delightful location, and as many boarders as 
they may be able to accomodate. 

By order of the Executive Committee. 

B. P. STUBBS, Secretary. 
July 11-tf.

(It is believed that Oglethorpe University is the first ed- 
ucational institution to offer full hour all day educational in- 
struction. As a matter of historical interest, below is given the 
radio announcement issued in the Spring of 1931, with the 
courses offered. Students were enrolled in all these classes. 
In all a total of 60 took the work, and the examinations in per- 
son at stated intervals. An announcement is being prepared 
for the radio lectures for the coming school year. Those inter- 
ested are invited to send for a copy of the forthcoming an- 
nouncement. Address all communications to President Thorn- 
well Jacobs, Oglethorpe University, Georgia.) 

RADIO DIVISION OF OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 
Announcement of Courses 

Effective June 5th, 1931, Oglethorpe University in- 
augurates a complete program of college education by 
lectures over the radio, supported by correspondence, 
conferences and examinations. These courses will be 
conducted in a standard, permanent and systematic 
manner and will be the full equivalent of similar 
courses offered in the class rooms of the University. 

The territory covered by the broadcasting station 
will be that of greater Atlanta and the courses will be 
offered on a convenient schedule during the mornings 
and afternoons for six days of the week. The courses 
to be offered which are summarized below are designed 
to constitute the greater part of a standard college ed- 
ucation. Until television has been successfully accomp- 
lished it will be impossible to teach certain subjects 
successfully over the radio; but such courses as those 
in English, History, Education, Sociology, Modern and 
Ancient languages will one by one be added to the 
program. 

The lecture periods will be the same as those in use 
on the campus of the University and in the down town 
classes. During the summer of 1931, the periods will 
last for one hour. 



130 Oglethorpe University 

The tuition charge -is $15.00 per year hour (one 
minor) the same as that for the other divisions of the 
university. This means that a course, one hour per 
day for six days of the week during a radio term (6 
term hours) will cost $30.00. The applicant will be 
enrolled as a regular student of Oglethorpe University 
and will be notified as to what text or texts should be 
purchased and be given general instructions as to how 
to avail himself of the lectures offered. The schedule 
of the radio courses will be forwarded to him or her 
and will also be published in the local Atlanta news- 
papers daily. The student who is a candidate for a col- 
lege degree is required to do the work in a regular and 
systematic manner, to attend the radio lectures reg- 
ularly, make notes thereon, submit them to the profes- 
sor in charge for examination and criticism, study the 
texts and correspondence sheets furnished by the 
University, meet the professor at convenient intervals 
for conferences and guidance, either personally or by 
telephone, stand the customary examinations at the 
close of the work and, of course, pay the regular tu- 
ition fees. After each lecture the student is supposed 
to forward the notes made on the lecture immediately 
by mail to the professor in charge for criticism and re- 
view and is also expected to append thereto any 
questions that he may desire to have answered and 
this will be done by radio at the next lecture period. 

Careful tests will be made to determine the exact 
quality of the work done over the radio as compared 
with that done in the present Extension department 
and on the campus. Comparative results will show the 
relative value of radio work and relative college credits 
will be granted accordingly. In as much as it is con- 
fidently believed that this work will be the full equiv- 



Oglethorpe University 131 

alent of that done in the other divisions equal course 
credits will be given from the beginning and until and 
unless the University finds that the work done differs 
in quality from that done in other divisions of the 
University. The radio division will be of equal stand- 
ing, dignity and order with the undergraduate and 
graduate departments of the University. The studio 
has been installed on the University campus. The 
equipment is the best purchasable with crystal control 
and complete modulation and with it the University 
has been assured that it will be possible to completely 
cover with a dependable signal the territory of greater 
Atlanta. 

The Radio Division will be inaugurated beginning 
with such courses as may be deemed most practicable 
for radio instruction. The broadcasting station will 
operate under the call letters WJTL being thus named 
for Mr. John Thomas Lupton, donor of Lupton Hall in 
which the station is located and donor also of the 
equipment of the station itself. It will be perhaps the 
only station in America which is operated exclusively 
for educational purposes.

The History and Interpretation of the Bible by Dr. 

D. Witherspoon Dodge, one hour per day for six days 
per week. Two hours (2 minors). Tuition fee $30.00. 
The purpose of this course is to show how the Bible, 
as we now have it, came to be. It is a fascinating 
story. The path of its composition winds all the way 
through the handing down from one generation to 
another of oral traditions, the gathering of oriental 



132 Oglethorpe University 

folk-lore, the collection of stories told by the family 
fireside, the careful writing of historical documents by 
priest and scribe, the re-editing of this material for 
didactic and moralising purposes and its final codifi- 
cation into the present separate books of the Bible. It 
is no less a human than a divine process; and its in- 
terest is all the greater for this reason. It embraces 
practically every form of extant literature — story, al- 
legory, poetry, historical document, essay, proverb, 
novel, prophetic utterance and sermon. To trace the 
record of the personal and social development of the 
wonderful people whose history we have in the Bible, 
will make of the Bible a new book. 

Comparative Religions, Dr. D. Witherspoon Dodge. 
One hour per day for three days per week. One hour 
(one minor). Tuition charge $15.00. 

A noted Frenchman once remarked that "man is 
incurably religious." Indeed he is. It matters not in 
what land we find him, he has his gods, his religious 
ceremonies, his spiritual beliefs. To pass in review 
these different religions of man will be the object of 
this course. Study of the religious process from an- 
imism, fetishism, taboo and totemism of primitive 
people to the polytheism, monotheism and great spirit- 
ual ideals and ways of life of the civilized nations, will 
be made. The course will compass a thorough exam- 
ination of the religions of India, China, Japan, Persia, 
Babylonia, Assyria, Greece and Rome as well as of 
Israel. One of the most interesting features of the 
study will be the discovery of the many similarities as 
well as the contrasts of other religions to that of 
Christianity. The text-book to be used will be "The 
History of Religions" by Professor E. Washburn Hop- 
kins, Ph.D., LL.D. (MacMillan). 



Oglethorpe University 133 

The Story of the Earth and Its Inhabitants by Dr. 

Thornwell Jacobs, one hour per day for three days per 
week. One hour (one minor). Tuition charge $15.00 
Text book:The New Science and the Old Religion, 
Jacobs. (Oglethorpe University Press). 

This course may well be described as a general in- 
troduction to life. It is a study of the sciences chron- 
ologically, beginning with astronomy and following the 
geological history of the earth from its birth and then 
of life on the earth as told in palaeontology, embryol- 
ogy and anthropology, etc. It endeavors to answer the 
questions, where we came from, what we are and 
where we are going. It embodies the full story of ev- 
olution and constantly compares the new knowledge 
and the old faith. The endeavor is made to find a true 
and honest harmony between science and religion. 

Types of English Literature by Dr. James Routh. 
One hour per day for three days per week. One hour 
(one minor). Tuition charge $15.00. 

In this course Dr. Routh will pass up the usual his- 
torical treatment to come face to face at once with the 
still more vital question, Why do men like literature 
at all? And what is the psychology of their likes and 
dislikes ? 

The lectures will discuss the stage from the view- 
points of author and audience, the short story and 
novel from the same viewpoints, the feature article 
and magazine essay, and if time permits, poetry. Hear- 
ers who present themselves for examination will,' on 
passing, receive three units of credit toward a college 
degree. 

Introduction to Sociology by Dr. Mark Burrows. 



134 Oglethorpe University 

One hour per day for three days of the week. One 
hour (one minor). Tuition charge $15.00. 

A course giving briefly the historical background 
for the subject, and noticing next in the order of their 
importance the large natural factors conditioning the 
behavior of man, such as the geographic and climatic 
factors, biological implications, and the psychological 
and cultural foundations. The whole subject is treated 
from the behavioristic standpoint. All this is to lead 
to the problems of contemporary society of which 
there are many, and most of them necessarily are of 
a controversial nature. The course incidentally is to 
afford training in open mindedness. 

Beginners' Course in German by Dr. H. J. Gaertner, 
one hour per day for six days per week. Two hours 
(two minors). Tuition charge, $30.00. 

The method of this course emphasizes speaking 
ability. No formal grammar is allowed. The work 
will begin with phrases so nearly like English that 
their meaning is grasped directly without referring to 
the English equivalent. The method has been success- 
ful and has been elaborated by years of experience. 

Psychology by Dr. H. J. Gaertner. One hour per day 
for six days per week. Two hours (two minors). Tu- 
ition charge $30.00. 

This is a general foundation course. Methods for 
obtaining the basic facts of the subject are treated. 
The differences of schools of Psychology are discussed 
and modern viewpoints emphasized. 

Principles of Education by Dr. H. J. Gaertner. One 
hour per day, six days per week. Two hours (two 
minors). Tuition charge $30.00. 

This course will study some of the theoretical back- 



Oglethorpe University 135 

grounds for school programs. The various back- 
grounds of the past upon which curricula were based 
and the newer, present bases should make this an in- 
teresting subject especially for teachers and parents. 

Banking and Business by Dr. Wallace McCook Cun- 
ningham. One hour per day for three days per week. 
One hour (one minor). Tuition charge $15.00. 

This course covers the fields of money theory and 
of banking fundamentals treated in the ordinary col- 
lege course in money and banking. It differs from 
such a course in holding the practical interest of the 
business man constantly in view. For example, in 
discussing the effects of the variation of the quantity 
of gold and of bank credit upon the price level the ef- 
fects upon the profits of various types of business are 
shown. The relationship of the business man to his 
bank and of the bank to the Federal Reserve and the 
functions and services of the commercial trust, sav- 
ings and investment departments of banks are ex- 
plained and illustrated. 

Markets and Prices by Dr. Wallace McCook Cunning- 
ham. One hour per day for three days per week. One 
hour (one minor). Tuition charge $15.00. 

The course covers stock and commodity exchanges, 
their activities, operations and functions, the factors 
influencing security and commodity price levels and 
the forecasting of such prices with special reference to 
our present position in the business cycle. The type 
of subjects covered is illustrated by the following lec- 
ture topics: 

1. The language of exchanges and of speculation. 

2. The characteristics of stocks and of bonds. 

3. The nature and value of a continuous market. 



136 Oglethorpe University 

4. The short sale and its economic and social 
functions. 

5. The regulation of brokerage transactions and the 
conduct of brokers. 

6. The money market in its relation to security- 
prices. 

Corporation Finance and Investments by Dr. Wal- 
lace McCook Cunningham. One hour per day for six 
days per week. Two hours (two minors). Tuition 
charge $30.00. 

This course gives the student an insight and know- 
ledge of the formation of corporations, their structure 
and management, the qualities of the various types of 
stocks and bonds and their status as regards market- 
ability, safety of principal and certainty of income. In 
brief it gives the information most needed by the in- 
vestor. Special attention will be given to the various 
types of fraudulent promotions and the ear marks of 
fraudulent issues will be described in detail. 

Beginner's Course in Conversational French by 
Mademoiselle Madeline Groleau, one hour per day, for 
six days per week. Two hours (two minors) tuition 
charge $30.00. It is a well known fact, accepted by 
all educators that languages can best be taught 
through the ear so that the Radio is an ideal means of 
learning to speak a foreign language. In this way the 
entire attention is fixed on the sound of the word, 
phrase and the sentence. 

Beginner's Course in Conversational Spanish by 
Professor Francisco Perez, one hour per day, six days 
per week. Two hours (two minors) tuition charge 
$30.00. The Spanish language lends itself especially 



Oglethorpe University 137 

well to instruction by Radio. The Professors of Mod- 
ern languages are careful to pronounce and spell all 
words which may be mistaken. Our experience so 
far has proven that the language can be taught over 
the Radio as well and perhaps better than in the 
average college class room. 

Method of Registration 

All persons desiring to take the Radio courses in a 
regular and systematic manner should fill out the 
matriculation sheet supplied on request and mail it 
accompanied by a check to cover the course or courses 
desired as stated above. It is not necessary in order 
to take these courses for one to become a candidate 
for a degree immediately. Later on if you desire to do 
so, the proper credentials can be supplied to the regis- 
trar, enabling any student to qualify as a candidate 
for the bachelor's degree. All students desiring to do 
this work in a systematic manner should provide them- 
selves immediately with a good loose leaf notebook and 
with such texts as may be required by the professors 
in charge. All professors may be reached by day over 
the University phone and by night at their homes. 
Notes must be taken on all lectures and must be mailed 
to the professor of the subject taken the following day 
as evidence of attendance on classes and for purposes 
of correction and advice. All students who are can- 
didates for degrees are required to take the final, gen- 
eral comprehensive examinations such as are required 
in all other departments of the University. 

All courses at Oglethorpe University, whether by 
radio, on the campus or by extension are of equal value 
and quality and may be used interchangeably for cred- 
it toward degrees upon approval of the dean of the de- 
partment in which the student is working.
