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 thresholds 
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 who 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 attends 
to the details of management of the institution be- 
tween 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.

Oglethorpe University 15 

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 Ogle- 
thorpe 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 



16 Oglethorpe University 

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 nineteen 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 people. 

The corner stone of Oglethorpe University was laid 
on January 21, 1915, with her trustful motto engrav- 
ed upon it: "Manu Dei Resurrexit" (By the Hand of 
God She Has Risen From the Dead). 



Oglethorpe University 17 

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 was formed. The work of raising funds 
and new construction goes steadily on. And all of 
this has been done in the midst of financial disaster 
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 nineteen 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 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 
ciites and towns, and all over the South from Gal- 
veston, Tex., to Charlottesville, Virginia, and from 
Marshall, Missouri, to Bradenton, Fla. ; each one of 
them giving $1,000.00 or more to the enterprise; the 



18 Oglethorpe University 

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 en- 
trance. 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 de- 
sign with the landscape work required, will be ap- 
proximately $4,000,000. The building plan will be fol- 
lowed out in its entirety. 

The Oglethorpe Campus 

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



Oglethorpe University 19 

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 Road 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 something 
over $100,000. Like all the other Oglethorpe build- 
ings it is constructed of granite, trimmed with carved 
limestone. The seats are of reinforced concrete. This 
first section which seats about five thousand, com- 
prises approximately one-ninth of the total seating 
capacity. When completed it will have cost something 
like $750,000 and will have a seating capacity of ap- 
proximately that of the Roman Colosseum, 45,000. It 
is named in honor of Dr. and Mrs. Harry P. Hermance, 
Hal Hermance and Miss Helena Hermance, 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 
intellectual life of their university. To that end they 



20 Oglethorpe University 

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 names 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 set of chimes on any college 
campus in Georgia. Concerts on the chimes are given 
daily and are broadcast over station WJTL. 

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 installa- 



Oglethorpe University 21 

tion 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 catalogue. 

The Faculty of the University 

The Board of Directors of Oglethorpe University, 
realizing the responsiility upon them of selecting a 
faculty whose spiritual and intellectual equipment 
should be capable of satisfying the tremendous de- 
mands 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- 



22 Oglethorpe University 

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- 
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 observa- 
tion, 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 
northwestern section of the campus. It is located on 
Peachtree Road, and immediately in front of the en- 



Oglethorpe University 35 

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 consists of 
three separate structures which, combined, contain the 
library, the President's office, radio transmitting and 
broadcasting rooms, class rooms, dormitories, an As- 
sembly Hall seating approximately six hundred, equip- 
ped also as a theatre for the presentation of student 
dramas, and in the basement, basketball court, swim- 
ming pool, lockers and showers, and quarters for the 
University Press. The University Press is equipped 
with a Babcock optimus press, linotype machine and 
two smaller presses, with a number 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 Corpus Christi College, Oxford, 
the alma mater of James Edward Oglethorpe. It con- 
tains class rooms and dormitories, and will stand as 
a perpetual memorial fo the generosity of Colonel R. 
J. Lowry and Emma Markham Lowry.

sue special courses not leading to a degree may do so 
as unregistered students upon the passage of an exam- 



38 Oglethorpe University 

ination or examinations satisfactory to the Dean of the 
department in which the work is to be done. 

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 of granting charters to new or pro- 
posed higher educational institutions under the pro- 
visions of Section 14 of the Georgia 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 
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 



* These standards have been adopted by Oglethorpe Univer- 
stiy and are effective as of September 23, 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. 



Oglethorpe University 39 

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. 

2. Entrance or Admission: 

A college shall demand for admission of candidates 
for degrees 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 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 



40 Oglethorpe University 

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. 

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. 



Oglethorpe University 41 

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 professional 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 
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 endanger- 
ing educational efficiency. Sixteen hours is the recom- 
mended maximum load. 

9. Size of Classes: 

Classes (exclusive of lectures) of more than thirty 



42 Oglethorpe University 

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 
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 



Oglethorpe University 43 

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 institution from the 
accredited list. 

At least 75 per cent of the students in a college 
should be pursuing courses leading to baccalaureate 
degree; 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 



44 Oglethorpe University 

ideals, and satisfaction and enthusiasm among 1 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 colleges 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. 

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. 



Oglethorpe University 45 

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 insti- 
tution embracing two years of standard collegiate work as de- 
fined 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 
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 
college 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 holiday and vacations). Two hours 



46 Oglethorpe University 

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 graduates 
should be kept. 

6. Size of Facility and Number of Departments. 

The junior college shall offer instruction in at least five sep- 
arate departments. There shall not be fewer than five teach- 
ers 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 
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 of 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 three 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 



Oglethorpe University 47 

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 
expenditures are such as to show a minimum average annual 
net surplus of not less than $10,000 from non-educational ser- 
vices, such as board, room rents, etc., which may be used to 
supplement tuition fees. 

11. Library. 

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

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 originality 
in investigating and teaching, the tone of the institution, in- 
cluding the existence and culture of good morals and ideals, 
and satisfaction and enthusiasm among students and staff 
shall be factors in determining its standards. 

16. Extra-Curricular 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. 

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. 

18. 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. 

Oglethorpe University was the first educational in- 
stitution in Georgia to be inspected and fully accred- 
ited by the State Board of Education after their adop- 




"S 



Oglethorpe University 49 

training as engineers, program directors and station 
tion of the above standards, following the approval of 
them by all the educational institutions of the com- 
monwealth. 

Courses of Instruction and Require- 
ments for Degrees 

In the session of 1932-33 Oglethorpe University will 
offer courses in the undergraduate classes of nine 
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 languages. 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- 
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. 

The degree of Bachelor of Arts in the Fine Arts will 
be given to those students who complete the require- 
ments in the School of Fine Arts. 

The degree of Bachelor of Arts in Physical Edu- 
cation will be given to those students specializing in 
that department; and the degree of Bachelor of Arts 
in Radio Broadcasting to students receiving special 



50 Oglethorpe University 

managers. A diploma, but not a degree, is given to 
students completing a two year course in Art. 

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 pre- 
paring 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 
went into effect. The traditional four year course of 
study is now divided into two groups. The first two 
years of work are designated as the College Division, 
and the remaining two years of work as the Uni- 
versity Division. The teaching remains as heretofore 
with similar schedules, with the customary lectures, 
laboratory work, quizzes, and examinations. But the 



Oglethorpe University 61 

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. 

All transfer credits in order to be acceptable to 
Oglethorpe University must come from standard insti- 
tutions of at least junior college or normal grade. 

In determining the rating both of high schools and 
colleges for any given year the University is governed 
by the rulings of the Department of Education of the 
State of Georgia. 

Transfer credits are allowed only for courses which 
parallel those given at Oglethorpe. 



52 Oglethorpe University 

Definite transcripts are required for admission both 
to the graduate and under-graduate divisions. 

The Atlanta School System has asked that teachers 
take work on only Friday and Saturday, not definitely 
limiting the amount of credit. Fifteen to eighteen col- 
lege hours is considered a reasonable amount of work 
for a pupil giving all his time to instruction. There- 
fore, as teachers are supposed to give at least half of 
their time to their teaching and to its preparation, 
we do not feel that any teacher in service should try 
to carry more than seven and a half or nine college 
hours' work a year as a maximum, not including sum- 
mer school work. When it is understood that this 
means seven and a half to nine hours of class room 
work a week, not to mention the preparation involved, 
it will be seen that this is reasonable. 

All candidates for all degrees are required, in ad- 
dition to passing such examinations, quizzes, tests, 
etc., as may be prescribed by the professors in charge 
of the courses taken, to stand a final, comprehensive, 
written examination, covering the entire course which 
they have taken for the degree. If and when these 
examinations have been successfully passed the candi- 
date is required to stand an oral examination of the 
same general comprehensive nature before a commit- 
tee of the Faculty and in the case of candidates for 
the Master's degree, to submit a thesis of a nature 
satisfactory to a special committee of the Faculty, 
appointed to review same. 

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 



Oglethorpe University 53 

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 clock hour of instruction 
per week. The courses offered at the University 
usually run two, three, or four clock 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 pro- 
portion. The charges for work done in the laborator- 
ies, 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 year hours of 
instruction, equal to 66 minors, the total charge for the 
four years, more or less, of instruction, including tu- 
ition, laboratory and other college fees, is approximate- 
ly $247.50 per year. The tuition charge includes tick- 
ets to all athletic games played on the campus and to 
the annual performance of the Oglethorpe Players 
Club. There are no other fees. All tuition charges are 
payable quarterly in advance and no rebates are given. 
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 
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 



64 Oglethorpe University 

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 comfort- 
able. 

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 
as early as possible. For reservation of room inclose 
$5.00 reservation 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 
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. 



Oglethorpe University 55 

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. 

All charges are payable in advance by the term of 
approximately three months as per college calendar, 
and no rebate is allowed for any reason. 

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 Universtiy frequently 
is able to secure reduced rates for our students, yet 
we assume no responsibility beyond such services as 
our college physician and college infirmary are able 
to render. 

Directions to New Students 

Students coming to Oglethorpe University from a 
distance should remember that Oglethorpe University 



56 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 degrees. 

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- 
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. 



Oglethorpe University 57 

Courses leading to the Master's degree in certain 
departments will be found outlined elsewhere in this 
catalogue under the appropriate department heading, 
in the 500's. This degree is based upon that of Bache- 
lor of Arts of Oglethorpe University or of some other 
approved institution. The candidate must have an ag- 
gregate of fifteen hours of graduate work, with at least 
two Professors ; all this work must be done with Ogle- 
thorpe. In addition a thesis is required. But the de- 
gree is not guaranteed at the end of a fixed period of 
time. A certain amount of work must be accomp- 
lished, and the quality of it must be such as to satisfy 
the Professors concerned and the whole Faculty. Dur- 
ing the past four years the University has established 
several centers of study in the city of Atlanta. Hund- 
reds 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 
attainment 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. 

Students entering the Graduate School in selecting 
their major courses must present not less than two 
years (six year hours) of undergraduate work in the 
same or closely related subjects evidenced by official 



58 Oglethorpe University 

transcripts from standard institutions recognized as 
such by the Department of Education of the State of 
Georgia. In addition to this the student must have 
had one year (three year hours) of work in any sub- 
ject selected as a minor. 

A class that meets once a week during the session 
of nine months, carries a credit of one hour (one year 
hour) . A class that meets three times a week (three 
clock hours) during a term carries a credit of one hour 
(one term hour). 

A minimum of fifteen college hours or one year of 
work and a minimum of one year (nine months) resi- 
dence is required for the Master's degree. A minimum 
of one year or approximately nine months' residence 
is required also for the Bachelor's degree. Of the 
fifteen hours required for the Master's degree not less 
than nine shall be devoted to the major subject and 
the other six or more selected by the advice and coun- 
sel of the Dean of the Department in which the student 
is working. In addition a satisfactory thesis must be 
presented to the Faculty Committee upon a subject 
approved by them and filed with the Committee not 
less than ten days before the date of graduation. 

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

School of Liberal Arts 

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

G. F. Nicolassen, Dean 

This course of study is intended to encourage es- 
pecially the study of the languages, ancient and mod- 
ern. No Latin is required for entrance. 

A student must take one language as a major, and 
two or three languages as minors. The major lan- 
guage shall be carried through four years. If two 
minors are taken, each must be pursued for two years. 

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. 

Latin 

Latin 111-2-3. For entrance into this class the stu- 
dent is expected to have had at least three years of 
high school Latin. He must be able to translate Eng- 
lish into Latin with some facility. Livy, Cicero de 
Senectute and Sallust's Catiline will be studied in this 
year. A brief history of Rome will also be included. 
Prose composition, both oral and written, will be car- 
ried on throughout the year. Elective. Three hours. 

Latin 211-2-3. The studies of this class will be in 
Cicero's Letters, Horace and Plautus. A course in 



Oglethorpe University 61 

Latin Literature will also be given. Twice a week 
throughout the year. Elective. Two hours. 

Latin 311-2-3. This class will begin with Terence, 
and then take up Tacitus and Juvenal. Ancient Ro- 
man life will be considered in this part of the course. 
Twice a week throughout the year. Elective. Two 
hours. 

Extension Classes 

On Saturdays classes will be arranged for students 
in the Extension Department. A beginners' class will 
meet for two hours. The work will be adapted both for 
those who have never studied Latin and for those who 
wish to review the first year's work. Second year 
Latin will be studied in another class, also meeting for 
two hours. 

Greek 

Greek 111-2-3. Preparatory. This class is de- 
signed not merely for those who have no knowledge 
of the language, but also for those whose preparation 
is inadequate. The most important subjects, both in 
inflection and syntax, are presented early in the course 
and then, by a system of weekly reviews, are kept 
constantly fresh. 

Text-Books: White's First Greek Book, Xenophon's 
Anabasis (Goodwin and White) . Three times a week 
throughout the year. Elective. Three hours. 

Greek 211-2-3. The preparation for entrance into 
this class is not so much a matter of time as of 
thoroughness. The student is expected to know the 
ordinary Attic inflections and syntax, to have read 
about one book of the Anabasis, and to have had con- 
siderable practice in translating English into Greek. 
The use of accents is required. 



62 Oglethorpe University 

A part of the work of this class consists of the min- 
ute study of the verbs, their principal parts, synopsis 
of tenses, and the inflection of certain portions. 

Written translations of English into Greek are re- 
quired once a week. On the other days a short oral 
exercise of this kind forms a part of the lesson; so 
that in each recitation some practice is had in trans- 
lating English into Greek. Elective. Two hours. 

Text-Books: Xenophon's Anabasis (Goodwin and 
White), Memorabilia, Adams's Lysias, Goodwin's 
Greek Grammar, Pearson's Greek Prose Composition, 
Myers's Eastern Nations and Greece, Liddell and 
Scott's Greek Lexicon, (unabridged). 

Greek 311-2-3. In the first term Demosthenes will 
be read ; in the second, Herodotus ; in the third, Homer. 
The subject of Phonetics is presented and illustrated 
by chart and model of the larynx showing the position 
of the vocal organs. Elective. Two hours. 

Greek 411-2-3. The time of this class will be di- 
vided between prose and poetry. After the study of 
Thucydides and Plato, the reading of Sophocles will 
be taken up. The life of the ancient Greeks will also 
be considered. Elective. Two hours. 

Graduate Courses in Latin and Greek 

511-2-3. Those who are thinking of taking gradu- 
ate courses are advised to write to the President or to 
the Professor, that their preliminary studies may be 
so guided as to fit them for the work. The require- 
ments for entrance into these courses are given else- 
where in this catalogue, under the head of Graduate 
School. 

In Latin the following course will be offered for the 
A.M. degree in the session of 1932-33: Vergil's com- 
plete works; Vergil in the Middle Ages; History of 
Classical Scholarship; Textual Criticism. 



Oglethorpe University 63 

Mythology and Etymology 

The first term will be devoted to the study of Myth- 
ology, that readers of English Literature may be able 
to understand allusions to classical stories. 

The second part of this course is designed to show 
the origin of English words derived from Greek and 
Latin, especially scientific terms. Students looking 
forward to medicine will find this course particularly 
helpful. No knowledge of either language is required 
for entrance. Elective. Two hours. 

German 

German 111-2-3. Elementary German, largely con- 
versational and oral, developing reasonable fluency in 
speaking. Elective for Freshmen. Fall, Winter and 
Spring terms. Three hours. 

German 211-2-3. Easy reading of a number of 
novelettes, such as Storm's Immensee, Zillern's Hoeher 
als die Kirche, etc., together with critical study of 
grammar and exercises in composition, letters, etc. 
Elective for Sophomores. Fall, Winter and Spring 
terms. Two hours. 

German 311-2-3. German Classics, mainly dramatic 
writings of Schiller, Goethe and Lessing, together with 
the elementary principles of language science and 
also composition. Elective for Juniors and Seniors. 
Fall, Winter and Spring terms. Three hours.

companied by some anthology of the leading poets and 
writers, covering the leading authors. Elective. Fall, 
Winter and Spring terms. Three hours. 

German 511-2-3. Graduate courses leading to the 
degree of Master of Arts will be arranged upon de- 
mand. 



64 Oglethorpe University

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.

School of Literature and Journalism 

James E. Routh, Dean 

Leading to the degree of bachelor of arts in general 
literary culture, professional, literary and newspaper 
practice, and preparation for the study of law in law 
schools that require literary prerequisites. No Latin 
is required for entrance. Literary students desire an 
increased appreciation of literature, but they also wish 
the command of good usable English for everyday use. 
For either, good habits in the use of language are es- 
sential, and are a prime consideration in the depart- 
ment. 

The work in English in the college division is de- 
signed to give students a mastery of their own tongue 
for speaking and writing, and to familiarize them with 
the best English literature. The elective courses, 
given mainly for students in the university division, 
provide intensive study in special fields. The summer 
courses, though not identical with the winter courses, 
are planned along similar lines. This will enable a 
student to complete a portion of his requirements for 
a degree in the summer. 

For graduate students work is offered leading to the 
degree of A.M. See page 72.

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 



86 Oglethorpe University 

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 84.

Commerce

W. McCook Cunningham, Dean 

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

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.

present status; socialism and social control; social 
pathology and methods of social investigation, and an 
estimation of progress. An examination of the prin- 
ciples of the subject with some attempt to give the 
student a first-hand insight by means of visits to in- 
stitutions, exercises, questions for debate, and the pre- 
paration of special studies in social problems. A re- 
quired course in the School of Education and Secre- 
tarial Preparation. Elective to others. Open only to 
Juniors and Seniors. Three times a week throughout 
the year. Three hours. 

Cosmic History 411-2-3 by President Jacobs. In the 

endeavor to give to the graduates of the University 
a course that will co-ordinate the knowledge they have 
obtained of such subjects as Biology, Geology, Pale- 
ontology, etc., with their work in Bible, Ethics and 
Philosophy, the President of the University will meet 
the Senior Class one hour per week, Thursday at 10:30, 
in a seminar covering a story of human life following 
the broad outlines of Astronomy, Geology, Paleontol- 
ogy, Embryology, Anthropology and Archeology. 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 



Oglethorpe University 103 

Senior class, to the end that in harmonizing the truths 
learned their faith may not be unsettled. One hour. 
The History and Appreciation of Music 311-2-3. An 

inquiry into the evolution of music from the earliest 
times to the present. The plan contemplated is a com- 
bination of history, musical form, and appreciation. 
While the historical phase is interesting, and an un- 
derstanding of musical form appeals to the intellectual 
and scientific, the main object is to cultivate increased 
appreciation of its beauty and of its power as an in- 
instrument of expression. The course will introduce 
simple and primitive forms with explinations and il- 
lustrations. This will be followed in proper sequence 
by the folk songs, the dance form, the suite, grand 
opera, oratorio, and the symphony. Attention will be 
given to instrumentation and the development of the 
modern orchestra. Illustrative material will be sup- 
plied by the living voice, the piano, and the recently 
perfected forms of electrical recording. The course 
will be semi-laboratory in its presentation. Those 
taking the course for college credit may present it as 
a three hour elective in the School of Education. Re- 
quired in School of Radio Broadcasting..

School of Physical Education 

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

Donald Harper Overton, Dean 

Its purpose is two-fold : To train, protect and de- 
velop the bodies of all the students of the University, 
and to offer a special training, equipping them for 
positions as Physical Directors in other schools, col- 
leges and universities and in Y. M. C. A.'s and the 
Army. 

As a school for the special preparation of students 
for positions as physical directors and coaches in high 
schools, prep schools and universities, a regular cur- 
riculum has been arranged offering instruction in the 
following subjects, the completion of which will lead 
to a degree of Bachelor of Arts in Physical Education. 

Intramural Athletics 

In order to extend the benefits of organized ath- 
letic competition to all students of Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity, instead of only to those who take part in 
intercollegiate competition, the Department of Physi- 
cal Education sponsors the program of Intramural 
Athletics. 

The purpose of the intramural department is to en- 
courage every student to participate in some or all 
intramural sports, to provide facilities for this par- 
ticipation, to organize and promote intramural com- 
petition, and to stand for fair play and true sports- 
manship. 

This program includes competitive sports for every 
student on the campus. Students thus benefit from 
the wholesome effect of organized sports, and from the 
physical development which naturally follows. 



110 



Oglethorpe University 



Intramural competitors, strangers at first but later 
friends, learn courage, determination, and self control. 
Qualities of loyalty, self-sacrifice and team play are 
also thoroughly ingrained in each individual through 
this program. 

The fact that the intramural program provides con- 
tinuous competition in some sport throughout the 
school year assures each participating student of phys- 
ical exercise every day of the school year.

Scholarships for Athletes 

We are constantly receiving inquiries from pros- 
pective students concerning "athletic scholarships." 
The only scholarships offered by the university are 
given as rewards for exceptional high school and col- 
lege attainment. The only way in which a football or 
baseball player can receive aid at Oglethorpe is in the 
same way that other students are aided by such self- 
help jobs as it may be possible for them to fill con- 
sistent with their week-end absences. These positions 
pay from twenty to forty cents per hour and if oc- 
cupied industriously and efficiently will cover the stu- 
dent's college expenses in large part. The university 
must necessarily assign self-help students taking part 
in inter-collegiate athletics to such self-help positions as 
their engagements may permit them to hold. 

Our endeavor and policy is to treat all students ex- 
actly alike, neither favoring nor discriminating against 
a boy who happens to be a fine football player. 

Rules For Eligibility of Players in Inter-Collegiate 
Sports at Oglethorpe University 

1. All students engaging in inter-collegiate sports 
must be fully registered and qualified under the en- 
trance requirements of the University as published 
in the catalogue. 

2. All students engaging in inter-collegiate sports 
must carry at least twelve hours (24 semester hours) 
of standard college work. 

3. All students engaging in "varsity" inter-collegiate 
sports must have passed not less than twelve hours 
of work during the preceding year or under the new 
system of Education must have tentatively passed 
said amount by tentative figures furnished the Regis- 
trar by the faculty. 



112 Oglethorpe University 

4. No student at Oglethorpe University shall be 
shown any preferences financially or academically be- 
cause of engaging in inter-collegiate athletics, but the 
fact that the student engages in inter-collegiate sports 
shall not prejudice his selection in self-help positions 
open to all members of the student body. 

5. Oglethorpe University will not, under any cir- 
cumstances, permit the payment of any moneys for 
the services of athletes, either by alumni, friends, or 
by the college itself. 

6. The University assumes no responsibility for in- 
juries to students who engage in inter-collegiate ath- 
letics, but in lieu thereof will remit to those students 
who make the varsity or the first year squad a sum 
equivalent to their room rent, which sum is remitted 
for the purpose of paying hospital, doctor, dentist 
bills, etc., in case of injuries or treatments made neces- 
sary by their participation in any game and personal 
assumption of the risks thereby involved.

School of Radio Broadcasting 

James E. Routh, Dean 

Oglethorpe University announces the inauguration 
of a School of Radio Broadcasting, especially designed 
to prepare students for the technical, the commercial, 
the production and the managerial departments of 
Radio work. Four distinct courses will be offered. 

The first, a one year course, prepares the student to 
obtain a Government license of the commercial second 
class or of the unlimited broadcast class. This course 
is outlined below. 

The second, a two year course, prepares the student 
for the position of Program Director and at the same 
time enables him to obtain a Junior College diploma. 

The third prepares the student for the position of 
Studio Manager. To these three courses an extra year 
may be added, at the successful completion of which 
the student will receive the degree of Bachelor of Arts 
in Radio Broadcasting. 

It is believed that this is the first school of Aerial 
Journalism established in the history of the world. 

Oglethorpe University is the first college in America 
to plan systematic college work leading to proficiency 
in Radio Studio Management and Program Directing. 
Students who heretofore have had to attend technical 
schools of Radio can now get this work in connection 
with such college studies as they may wish to take, in 
addition, for a liberal education. Those who are es- 
pecially ambitious may get a college degree while spe- 
cializing in Radio practice and qualifying for a calling 
or profession. 

The Station WJTL of Oglethorpe will provide first 
hand information and familiarity with actual work; 
the existence in Atlanta of the radio regional director's 
office will facilitate keeping in touch with the require- 



114 Oglethorpe University 

ments laid down by the United States Government, 
and licenses issued by the Government can be passed 
on in Atlanta. 

The courses outlined below are founded upon stand- 
ard college work in Physics, Chemistry, English, For- 
eign languages, and business courses. To these have 
been added certain special courses necessary for equip- 
ping the student professionally in the art and business 
of broadcasting. 

The work will be under the direction of the Radio 
staff of WJTL and the regular faculty of the univer- 
sity. 

The courses are as follows: 

Radio Theory 

Radio Theory (A). This course is of a technical 
nature designed for those who wish to secure a United 
States Government radio operator's license, broadcast 
class. 

Every phase of radio including the fundamental 
principles of electricity and magnetism, motors, gener- 
ators, storage batteries, radio theory, radio broadcast 
transmitters and studio equipment, and radio law and 
regulations will be thoroughly covered. In addition 
special work in the fields of air craft, radio equipment, 
talking pictures, television, geophysical research, radio 
equipment, etc. will be taught. 

Upon completion of this course the student will have 
a knowledge of radio equal if not superior to that 
taught by any radio school in the United States and he 
will be more adequately prepared to pass the Govern- 
ment examinations. 

Six hours of lecture classes and six hours of lab- 
oratory per week are required. Three units of credit 
are given for the theory and the three for the labora- 



Oglethorpe University 115 

tory work. In addition the student may or may not 
take fifteen hours of code practice per week depending 
on whether he wishes a restricted or an unrestricted 
broadcast license. Five hours of credit are given for 
the fifteen hours of code practice. 

Radio Theory (B). This technical course is some- 
what similar to the one listed above except that it is 
designed to prepare the student for the United States 
Government commercial second class radio operator's 
license. 

The fundamental principles of electricity and mag- 
netism, radio theory, motors, generators, storage bat- 
teries, and radio laws and regulations will be thor- 
oughly covered. Broadcast transmitters and equip- 
ment, air craft radio, television, talking pictures, geo- 
physical research, radio equipment, etc. will be touched 
upon. An intensive and minute study of continuous 
wave transmission, and transmitters, commercial and 
ship equipment, will be undertaken. 

Six hours of lecture classes and six hours of lab- 
oratory work per week are required. Also fifteen hours 
of code practice per week are necessary. Three hours 
of credit are given for the theory, three for the labora- 
tory work, and five for the code practice. 

Studio Management (A and B). A two year course 
of a practical nature completely covering every phase 
of studio work from the first principle of microphone 
approach to the formulation and direction of a com- 
plete radio program. 

Announcing, continuity work, production, and pro- 
gram direction are the four general divisions to be 
covered during the four years. Subdivided under these 
general heads will be found such specialized subjects 
as voice culture, commercial and sustained continui- 
ties, plays, presentation of programs, arrangement of 



116 Oglethorpe University 

artists and instruments, selection of talent, acoustics, 
arrangement of programs, selling over the air, news 
value, etc. 

Six hours per year for two years. Six hours of 
credit are given for the twelve hours work. 

Studio Management (C). A course for the senior 
year of those who are working for the Bachelor of 
Radio Broadcasting degree. 

The purpose of this course is to correlate practically 
and theoretically the various courses taken during the 
preceding years. The knowledge gained during those 
three years will be classified and consolidated finally 
and concretely in the mind of the student, while the 
managerial aspect of studio work will be especially 
emphasized. 



The courses in the Commercial Branch of the Radio 
Broadcasting Course include Research (statistics, sales 
plan, rates, merchandising, sales promotion, selling) ; 
Advertising (distribution, good will, publicity, sales 
results) ; Entertainment (founded on a knowledge of 
English with incidental knowledge of modern lan- 
guages covering announcing) ; Languages (Italian, 
French and German, voice culture, public speaking, 
singing, history of music, articulation, inflection) ; Mu- 
sic Study Appreciation (production, microphone place- 
ment, presentation, frequency of tone, acoustics, in- 
struments and instrumentation) ; Plans and Sales 
Ideas; Contest Idea Department (commercial musical 
adaptations) ; Directing of Programs (brilliance, speed, 
selection of talent, balancing, timing, gauging) ; Pro- 
gram Directing (selection of talent, auditions, sale of 
talent, arrangement of programs, prestige, what not 
to sell, news value, listeners' interest) ; Radio Writing 
(rhetoric, commercial continuity, dramatic writing, 



Oglethorpe University 117 

typing) ; The Ethics of the Air including a study of 
the rules and regulations of the Federal Radio Com- 
mission, the best practices in salesmanship and com- 
mercial ethics. 

The above constitute the outline of the special pro- 
fessional subjects covered in the courses offered the 
students who desire to become proficient in the com- 
mercial or entertainment divisions of Radio Broad- 
casting.

Dean. 

Correspondence Radio Courses 

Standard correspondence courses, supplemented by 
radio lectures broadcast over station WJTL constitute 
the Correspondence Radio Division of Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity, and maybe used to the extent of twenty-five 
percent toward the Bachelor's degree in any depart- 
ment. 

(It is believed that Oglethorpe University is the first edu- 
cational 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.) 



Oglethorpe University 119 

Correspondence Radio Division of 
Oglethorpe University 

Announcement of Courses 

Effective June 5, 1931, Oglethorpe University in- 
augurated a complete program of college education by 
lectures over the radio, supported by correspondence, 
conferences and examinations. These courses are con- 
ducted in a standard, permanent and systematic man- 
ner and are the full equivalent of similar courses of- 
fered in the class rooms of the University. 

The territory covered by the broadcasting station 
is that of greater Atlanta and the courses are offered 
on a convenient schedule during the mornings and 
afternoons for six days of the week. Some of the 
courses to be offered which are summarized below are 
designed to constitute the greater part of a standard 
college education. Until television has been success- 
fully accomplished it will be impossible to teach cer- 
tain subjects successfully over the radio; but such 
courses as those in English, History, Education, So- 
ciology, 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 1933, the periods will 
last for one hour. 

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 



120 Oglethorpe University 

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 Uni- 
versity, meet the professor at convenient intervals for 
conferences and guidance, either personally or by tele- 
phone, stand the customary examinations at the close 
of the work and, of course, pay the regular tuition 
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. 

The correspondence radio division of the University 
is essentially a thorough standard correspondence de- 
partment supplemented by radio lectures. Effective 
September 25, 1932, Oglethorpe will not give credit 
for ordinary correspondence work. The radio division 
is of equal standing, dignity and order with the under- 
graduate and graduate departments of the University. 
The studio has been installed on the University cam- 
pus. 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 terri- 
tory of greater Atlanta. 

The Radio Division has been inaugurated beginning 
with such courses as have been deemed most prac- 
ticable for radio instruction. The broadcasting sta- 



Oglethorpe University 121 

tion is operated on a frequency of 1370 kilocycles and 
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 sta- 
tion in America which is operated exclusively for edu- 
cational purposes.

The method of this course emphasizes speaking abil- 
ity. 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 successful 
and has been elaborated by years of experience. 

Mental Hygiene by Dr. H. J. Gaertner. One hour 
per day for three days per week for three terms. Col- 
lege credit one hour (one minor) per term. Tuition 
charge $15.00 per term.

for mental failures, the problem of happiness in liv- 
ing, causes of abnormal mentality and the general way 
in which the normal mind is formed. 

The History and Appreciation of Music by Dr. Mark 
Burrows. One hour per day for three days per week, 
three terms. College credit one hour (one minor) per 
term. Tuition charge $15.00 per term. 

An inquiry into the evolution of music from the 
earliest times to the present. The plan contemplated 
is a combination of history, musical form, and appre- 



122 Oglethorpe University 

ciation. While the historical phase is interesting, 
and an understanding of musical form appeals to the 
intellectual and scientific, the main object is to culti- 
vate increased appreciation of its beauty and of its 
power as an instrument of expression. The course 
will introduce simple and primitive forms with explan- 
ations and illustrations. This will be followed in pro- 
per sequence by the folk song, the dance form, the 
suite, grand opera, oratorio, and the symphony. At- 
tention will be given to instrumentation and the devel- 
opment of the modern orchestra. Illustrative material 
will be supplied by the living voice, the piano, and the 
recently perfected forms of electrical recording. The 
course will be semi-laboratory in its presentation. 
Those taking the course for college credit may pre- 
sent it as a three hour elective in the School of Edu- 
cation.

low, the lectures will cover the same ground as John 
Drinkwater's Outline of Literature, Putnam, 1931, 985 
pages, $5.00. For reading specimens of good poetry, 
the text will be Beatty and Wowyer's First editions 
of English Poets, Richard R. Smith, Inc., 1931, $4.00.

Beginners' Conversational Spanish by Prof. Fran- 
cisco Perez. One hour per day for three days of the 
week. College credit one hour (one minor) per term. 
Tuition charge $15.00 per term.

mar.

leine Groleau. One hour per day for three days per 
week, three terms. College credit one hour (one min- 
or) per term. Tuition charge $15.00 per term.

guage correctly themselves. Only so much of the fun- 
damentals of grammar as are necessary is included. 

The History and Interpretation of the Bible by Dr. 
D. Witherspoon Dodge. One hour per day for six days 



126 Oglethorpe University 

per week for three terms. College credit two hours 
(two minors) per term. Tuition fee $30.00 per term. 
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 an- 
other of oral traditions, the gathering of oriental folk- 
lore, the collection of stories told by the family fire- 
side, the careful writing of historical documents by 
priest and scribe, the re-editing of this material for 
didactic and moralizing purposes and its final collection 
into the present separate books of the Bible. It is no 
less a human than a divine process ; and its interest is 
all the greater for this reason. It embraces practically 
every form of extant literature — story, allegory, 
poetry, historical document, essay, proverb, novel, pro- 
phetic 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 for three 
terms. College credit one hour (one minor) per term. 
Tuition charge $15.00 per term. 

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 ani- 
mism, fetishism, taboo and totemism of primitive peo- 
ple to the polytheism, monotheism and great spiritual 
ideals and ways of life of the civilized nations, will be 
made. The course will compass a thorough examina- 
tion of the religions of India, China, Japan, Persia, 



Oglethorpe University 127 

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). 

Contemporaneous Civilization, by Dr. D. Wither- 
spoon Dodge. One hour per day for three days per 
week, three terms. College credit one hour (one min- 
or) per term. Tuition charge $15.00 per term. 

The purpose of this course will be to acquaint stu- 
dents with what is happening in the world of our own 
day, and in addition to try to trace the trend of con- 
temporary events. It will seek to orient the mind to 
a closer observation, a keener examination and a more 
philosophical interpretation of what is going on in our 
modern world. It will submit the current events re- 
corded in our newspapers to the same critical study 
that is given to past history. Such matters as the im- 
portance of new inventions, the significance of politi- 
cal policies, the influence of economic and social forces, 
the value of new scientific discoveries and the conse- 
quences of new national and racial relationships, will 
form the material of the study. To use a somewhat 
slang but very expressive phrase, the course will put 
its students in a most advantageous position to "know 
what it is all about." 

Philosophy by Dr. D. Witherspoon Dodge. One hour 
per day for three days per week, three terms. College 
credit one hour (one minor) per term. Tuition charge 
$15.00 per term. Text book: An Introduction to Phi- 
losophy by Prof. G. T. W. Patrick. 

Philosophy's purpose is to explain reality to man- 
kind, so that man's way through life may be more 



128 Oglethorpe University 

clearly understood." A course with such a purpose 
will appeal to many. After clearly denning the na- 
ture of philosophy, the study shows the relation of phi- 
losophy to science and religion. Next, the matter of 
method in philosophy is briefly presented. Then fol- 
lows the discussion of such subjects as "The Cosmos," 
"Is the World Purposive?" "The Problem of God," 
and "The Search for the Soul." The various Theories 
of Reality — Dualism, Materialism, Idealism and Plur- 
alism — are then submitted to a thoroughgoing exami- 
nation. The course will end with a review of the The- 
ories of Knowledge and an appraisal of The Higher 
Values of Life, Moral and Aesthetic. 

A Study of Society by Dr. D. Witherspoon Dodge. 
One hour per day for three days per week, three terms. 
College credit one hour (one minor) per term. Tuition 
charge $15.00 per term. Text book: An Introduction 
to Sociology, by Jerome Davis and Harry Elmer 
Barnes. 

All of the phenomena of human society arising from 
the association of mankind in groups, will constitute 
the subjects of study in this course. It will begin at 
the beginning with the origin of man, and trace the 
development of the social process through the do- 
mestic, clannish, tribal, national and international 
groups. The concentric human circles of classes with- 
in classes will also come in for attention and under- 
standing. Most of the time will be spent in an en- 
deavor to unravel the persistent, practical problems 
of social health and disease, recreation, poverty, crime, 
industrial difficulties, economic enigmas, class preju- 
dices, racial antipathies, the home and city planning. 
Such larger problems also as those of war and peace 
and inter-national relationships will receive considera- 
tion. The course should throw much light on the 



Oglethorpe University 129 

question, "How can human beings live together har- 
moniously and happily?"

Although the knowledge of our own bodies is the 
most important and useful and necessary of all know- 
ledge, few have any thing like an adequate idea of 
their workings, their diseases, and their proper care. 
This general introduction to physiology and hygiene 
will prove especially valuable to all those who desire 
to get the best service from their physical organisms 
and to preserve their powers of enjoyment and action 
in health and strength. 

Health and Parental Education by Dr. Willis A. Sut- 
ton, one hour per week for a total of three terms. Col-

This course by Dr. Sutton has been planned for Sat- 
urday morning from eight thirty to nine twenty so 
as to be available for parents and teachers not only, 
but also for students all over the city. Oglethorpe 
University will give a college credit of one hour (one 
minor) to all persons who do this work in a thorough 
and systematic manner. The course comprehends a 
general discussion of the proper attitude of the indi- 
vidual toward his health; proper diet; sleep, rest and 
recreation; use of the discoveries of modern medical 
science and a general discussion of preventive medi- 
cine. The part of the course devoted to Parental Edu- 
cation will cover the health habits of the child, their 
effect on his after life and his whole physical, in- 
tellectual and moral care from infant to adult.

three hours per week for three terms. College credit 
one hour (one minor) per term. Tuition charge $15.00 
per term. 

This course is designed for the large percentage of 
persons who have had one or two years of instruction 



Oglethorpe University 131 

in French, either at High School or in College or by pri- 
vate lessons. It is a continuation of the conversational 
method used during the first year and leads up to a 
study of French literature. 

Method of Registration 

All persons desiring to take the Correspondence 
Radio courses in a regular and systematic manner 
should fill out the matriculation sheet supplied on re- 
quest 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 registrar, enabling any student to qual- 
ify as a candidate for the bachelor's degree. All stu- 
dents desiring to do this work in a systematic man- 
ner should provide themselves immediately with a 
good loose leaf notebook and with such texts as may 
be required by the professors in charge. All profes- 
sors 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 attend- 
ance on classes and for purposes of correction and ad- 
vice. All students who are candidates for degrees are 
required to take the final, general comprehensive ex- 
aminations such as are required in all other depart- 
ments of the Unievrsity. 

All courses at Oglethorpe University, whether by 
correspondence radio, on the campus or by extension 
are of equal value and quality and may be used inter- 
changeably for credit toward degrees upon approval of 
the dean of the department in which the student is 
working, with the exception that only twenty-five per- 



132 Oglethorpe University 

cent of Extension or Correspondence Radio work may 
be used for a degree. 

Extension Division 

H. J. Gaertner, Dean 

The work is largely planned for those seeking grad- 
uation in the Junior College Division, or for those 
working for Bachelor's or Master's Degrees. Accord- 
ingly, Oglethorpe will date the educational history of 
each student and plan the work necessary for gradua- 
tion. 

In planning such work we see that certain definite 
studies must enter the curriculum of each student. For 
the Bachelor's degree, the student must have fulfilled 
the following requirements: Science, 8 year hours; 
Foreign Language 5 or 6 year hours ; Education 9 year 
hours ;English 6 year hours; History 3 year hours. 
One of the courses in English is a foundation study of 
English speech, grammar and writing. 

During recent years all Colleges have been working 
toward a better organized curriculum. It is this ten- 
dency that demands the above definite requirements. 
There is required a total of 66 year hours of acceptable 
credits. A minimum of fifteen year hours must be 
taken in Oglethorpe University. 

The Master's degree is based on the Bachelor's de- 
gree. The minimum requirement for the Master's is 
fifteen year hours. All of these must be taken from 
Oglethorpe University except in some instances where 
city administrations require 5 or 6 hours in the specific 
field in which the teacher is employed. This applies 
especially to certain vocational fields in Manual Arts 
or subjects not offered by Oglethorpe University. 

A thesis, approved by the thesis committee is also 
required. In addition hereafter, each candidate for 



Oglethorpe University 133 

the Master's degree is required to take a course in 
thesis writing and higher English to be approved by 
the Dean. 

In addition to the Extension Division, Oglethorpe 
University offers a Summer Quarter divided into two 
terms of six weeks each. By concentrating intensively 
on a few subjects each class meets six times a week. 
Three year hours each term or six year hours during 
the quarter is the regular amount of credit earned. 
However, any honor student, having a standing of 
90% the previous term either at Oglethorpe or any 
other approved institution will be allowed to take one 
additional hour each term, thus making 8 year hours 
the possible maximum. 

In addition, during some summers, Dr. H. J. Gaert- 
ner has taken a class of students through Europe. On 
these tours, intensive study in German, twice each day, 
is pursued on the boat followed by language Work on 
land and completed in regular classroom after return- 
ing. This makes it possible to earn 3 year hours in 
German as also three year hours in European civiliza- 
tion, attested by a full note book of travel information 
and incorporated into a travel diary. Such a tour is 
being planned for 1933. Both of these courses are to 
be followed after the party returns by study during 
the remainder of the Summer Quarter. Those who 
have taken this delightful and highly profitable plan 
for summer work bear testimony to its great value. 

According to the rules of the City administration of 
Atlanta all extension work of their teachers must be 
done after school closes on Friday. This means Fri- 
day afternoon, Friday night and Saturday. Not more 
than two courses, one on Friday and one on Saturday 
will be permitted the city teachers, 6 year hours at 



134 Oglethorpe University 

most. This meets the wishes of the Atlanta School 
administration. 

For many of the teachers not in the city system, 
classes will be organized at convenient centers. For 
these, not more than 8 year hours will be permitted, 
three during the school week and 4 or 5 on Saturday. 
By these plans, teachers combining extension work 
and Summer School attendance will be able to receive 
their degrees in a reasonable time. 

At present the number of College graduates offering 
for teaching places is so large that we are rapidly ap- 
proaching the time when College graduation will be 
required as a minimum for the profession. 

In all divisions of Oglethorpe University there is 
now a uniform charge of fifteen dollars per year hour. 
A year hour is two semester hours or frequently re- 
ferred to as a minor. Tuition is payable by the term 
(or per year hour) in advance. However, arrangements 
can be made to divide this into monthly payments. 

The times and places of meeting for some of the 
classes will be determined by the demand and require- 
ments of those enrolled. Certain classes are at pres- 
ent definitely planned. Among these are: 

Spanish 1, Commercial High, Friday, 3 P.M. Prof.

These will be in charge of Dr. J. F. Melton, Prof. 
Luther Hogan, and Dr. Elmer Campbell.

Self-Help 

Approximately fifteen per cent of the Oglethorpe 



Oglethorpe University 137 

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- 
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. 



138 Oglethorpe University 

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- 
comodations 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 
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 



Oglethorpe University 139 

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 her 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 vol- 
umes for the library. These consist of standard works 
in Literature, History and Science, with many val- 



140 Oglethorpe University 

uable reference works in special departments. The 
private libraries of Dr. Sellers in Science, of Dr. Nic- 
olassen 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 1932-33 from 
7:30 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. The Carnegie 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 unani- 
mously adopted by the Faculty of the University, 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 
hours weekly, of excellent personal character and con- 
duct, 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 themselves in 
some intellectual, creative, or constructive accomplish- 



Oglethorpe University 



141 



ment as to entitle them thereto in the judgment of 
the Faculty." 

For students who entered in September, 1931, or 
later, the award will be made on the basis of their 
comprehensive examination at the close of the College 
Division.

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 



Oglethorpe University 143 

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 
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 activities, she 
draws to herself as to a magnet the great minds of the 
nation and the world. Hither come lecturers, mu- 
sicians, statesmen, evangelists, editors, teachers and 
officials of the United States. An intellectual atmos- 
phere created by such conditions and the frequent op- 
portunity 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 ut- 
termost. 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 con- 
tact upon the young lives committed to us will be felt 
in increased ambition and redoubled determination 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 



144 Oglethorpe University 

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 
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. 



Oglethorpe University 145 

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. 

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 



146 Oglethorpe University 

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. 

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 has been 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 
for the year 1932-33 are as follows: 

Mrs. William Fisch, President ; Mrs. William Healey, 
First Vice-President ; Mrs. Frank Inman, Second Vice- 
President; Mrs. J. Henry Porter, Third Vice-Presi-

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 following: 

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 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 



Oglethorpe University 171 

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, 
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. 

(Signed) WATKINS, ASBILL & WATKINS, 
Attorneys for Petitioner,

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, Aritnmetic and Geography, ancient and modern. 

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

Freshman Class

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

Latin and Greek Exercises, Graeca Majora,

ing Conic Sections) Cicero de Oratore,

(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- 



176 Oglethorpe University 

emy and College under the government and instruction of the 
same 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 occason 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.

Illustrated Booklet of Views 

The Oglethorpe University Press has published a 
very beautiful illustrated booklet of views showing 
the college buildings, many campus views and various 
features of college life. It also carries with it a four- 
color reproduction of Audubon's famous picture of 
The Stormy Petrels for which the athletic teams of 
the college are named. This booklet is sold for $1.00; 
but we will gladly send a copy of it without charge to 
any prospective student with the understanding that 
it will be returned to us after inspection. 

A postal card addressed to the President will bring 
a copy of this literature to you by return mail.
