Some Reflections on the Flesh and 
Blood of a Great Man Now Lost 

J. he obituaries on Bishop Frank A. Juhan of Se- 
wanee, which was his spiritual home even before it was 
his actual one, have given the facts of a dignified and 
influential life, as they should. They do not say, as 
they should not, some of the things that break up 
those of us at Sewanee who knew the man behind the 
dignities. They do not say that he referred to him- 
self proudly as "the king of beggars" (for Sewanee), 
that his nurse reported the last two days of his life 
were spent, as almost all his earlier days had been, in 
planning ways to maintain the financial strength his 
alma mater needed to keep her flame alight in the 

When awarded admission to the National Football 
Hall of Fame — one of only two Sewanee men to make 
it — the other, incidentally, Henry Disbrow Phillips, al- 
so became a bishop — Bishop Julian's comment, almost 
his only comment, was, "Let us play for Sewanee and 
pray for Sewanee." 

An alumnus, Ben Sleeper, has spoken for many 
when he wrote, "I know Sewanee is in mourning. I 
too am a mourner. Frank Juhan was Sewanee's guard- 
ian angel. May he continue to watch over her as a 
guide and a guard. Here is a memorial contribution." 
(The family, incidentally, has requested that any 
memorials be made, in lieu of flowers, to the All Saints' 
Chapel completion fund or the Emerald-Hodgson 

However, here is a community that wants to recall 

as best it can in its present grief Bishop Juhan the 

man, one of the most manly men who ever broke a 

tooth on a football field or tracked a duck from an

Bishop Juhan Dies 

The Rt. Rev. Frank A. Juhan, whose name was 
linked with the Episcopal Church and the Uni- 
versity of the South for sixty years, died in 
Emerald-Hodgson Hospital on December 31 after a 
brief illness. 

The eighty-year-old former bishop of the Episcopal 
Diocese of Florida, who served the University as chap- 
lain, teacher and coach of Sewanee Military Academy 
and as trustee, regent, chancellor and director of de- 
velopment, was serving as athletics consultant, with an 
office in the gymnasium which bore his name. 

Funeral services were held in All Saints' Chapel on 
January 2, with the Rt. Rev. Girault M. Jones, bishop 
of Louisiana and chancellor of the University, conduct- 
ing the service assisted by the Rev. Joel Pugh, Uni- 
versity chaplain. 

Bishop Juhan was born in Macon, Georgia, April 27, 
1887, the son of Charles J. and Minnie Hervey Juhan. 
He attended West Texas Military Academy, San An- 
tonio, before coming to Sewanee in 1907 to study in the 
College of Arts and Sciences and the School of The- 

Ordained a deacon in 191 1 and a priest in 1912, he 
married Vera Louise MacKnight Spencer in January, 
1912, and took her with him to begin his career as 
chaplain of West Texas Military Academy and as 
priest-in-charge of missions in Goliad and Beeville, 

They came back to Sewanee in 1913 when the young 
clergyman became chaplain of Sewanee Military Acad- 
emy, a position which, for Juhan, carried with it duties 
as instructor in religion and Spanish and as athletic di- 
rector. At the same time he was line coach for the 
college football team. 

He accepted a call to become rector of Christ 
Church, Greenville, South Carolina, in 1916 and 
eight years later was elected — -at the age of thirty-seven 
— fourth bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Florida. 

He was the youngest diocesan of the House of Bish- 
ops and by the time he retired in 1956, he had become 
the senior active diocesan bishop of the Church in the 
United States. 

Deeply interested in young people, he became known 
throughout the Fourth Province of the Episcopal 
Church as "the young people's bishop." He was re- 
sponsible for building Florida's Camp Weed, named for 

his predecessor, for use as a children's summer camp 
and as a diocesan conference center. 

He also built two entirely new physical plants at 
Beacon Beach and at Camp Gordon Johnston. He 
inaugurated a program for college students at the Uni- 
versity of Florida, Florida State University, and at the 
Florida Agricultural and Mechanical College. 

story, are revealing. Communicant strength of the 
diocese grew from 5,614 in 1924 to 12,178 in 1955, par- 
ishes from sixty-two to eighty, while the diocese's 
giving for total causes grew from $152,602 to $818,303. 
Missionary giving increased ten-fold, from $16,559 to 

He had an intense desire to help young people find 
means for an education and to direct bright, dedicated 
young men into the priesthood. The number of lives 
he touched in both areas is endless. 

Becoming a permanent member of the University 
board of trustees with his election to the episcopacy, 
he became a member of the board of regents in 1934, 
and in 1944 he was elected the University's twelfth 

He became chairman of the Sewanee Centennial 
Fund effort, and when he retired from active status as 
bishop of Florida in 1956 he accepted the position of 
director of development for the University, for which 
he accepted no salary. 

He served for ten years, during which Sewanee's 
growth in physical plant, endowment and salaries at- 
tracted the attention of the nation. He retired again 
in 1965 after the successful completion of Sewanee's 
most ambitious development effort, the Ten Million 
Dollar Campaign. 

The retirement did not last. Soon he had opened 
another office, this time in Juhan Gymnasium, where 
he served as consultant for the athletic department for 
which he had starred as a member of its football, base- 
ball, track and boxing teams during his undergraduate 
days. In 1966 he was named to the National Football 
Foundation Hall of Fame 

Bishop and Mrs. Juhan had three children, two of 
whom survive him. They are the Rev. Alexander D. 
Juhan, Ponte Vedra, Florida, and Mrs. Sollace M. 
Freeman of Sewanee. Another son, Charles J. Juhan, 
was killed in action in Normandy in 1944.

The Library of St. Bede 
Added to University's Services 

for thirty years was staffed by devoted volun- 
teers in New York City as a "lending and refer- 
ence library of books on religion and related subjects 
and a center for study and conference" at the duPont 
Library of the University of the South has been ac- 
cepted with gratitude by the regents of the University. 

Vice-Chancellor McCrady, in transmitting the action 
of the Board of Regents to the St. Bede Board of Trus- 
tees, expressed pleasure that the University will not 
only greatly enrich its library resources but will be 
enabled to enter upon a broader field of service to the 
Church, and, indeed, the nation through lending the 
St. Bede books by mail to members. In fact this ser- 
vice has already begun. 

Seven thousand of the St. Bede volumes have been 
accessioned and are in open stacks in the beautiful 
reading room number two of the duPont Library, which 
has been re-named the St. Bede Room and will be so 
designated with a bronze plaque. An adjacent room is 
being furnished, as was the St. Bede Library home in 
New York, with office materials, mementoes, appro- 
priate works of art and convenient conference tables. 

The St. Bede Library endowment of $25,000 (recent- 
ly augmented by a gift of $892) will allow the annual 
purchase of volumes with $1,200 to $1,500, giving the 
department of religion of the College of Arts and 
Sciences one of the most extensive book-buying re- 
sources on an annual basis of any of the college's de- 
partments. The books are so varied, however, that 
all students will be enriched by their availability. 

While the St. Bede collection will be usable 
by the University's students and faculty on 
the same basis as all the other holdings of the duPont 
Library, and all visitors will be welcome to browse and 
to use material for reference on the premises, the 
unique feature of the St. Bede Library will be its circu- 
lation service to all who wish to take advantage of it for 
a small membership fee. 

A $3.00 annual fee entitles a member to receive lists 
of all the St. Bede materials and to borrow three books 
at a time for a period of up to four weeks, with the 
privilege of renewal if books are not in demand. Len- 
ten loans may be kept through Lent and summer loans 
from June to October. 

A fee of $4.00 entitles the member to all the above 

privileges plus the ordering of books by mail, including 
postage. A list of recent accessions will be issued each 
year and members are encouraged to assist in the se- 
lection of books. Special articles and sections of books 
will be Xeroxed at a nominal additional cost. 

The privilege is also extended to become a con- 
tributing member for $5.00, a subscribing member for 
$10.00, and a sustaining member beginning at $25.00. 
All contributions above the standard membership fees 
($3.00 for local circulation, $4.00 by mail) are tax 
deductible. The growth and increasing potential for 
service of the Library of St. Bede are dependent on 

Mr. William Harkins, librarian of the University's 
duPont Library, which was selected by the trustees of 
the St. Bede Library as its new home when rising costs 
and other considerations made its continuance in New 
York impracticable, points out that for a nominal cost 
any interested person in any small town anywhere can 
go ahead with his studies on religion or be kept more 
aware of what is happening in religion today. 

The holdings are by no means limited to Epis- 
copal works (though these form their backbone) 
nor to what might be ordinarily thought of as religious 
items. For example, the Catholic Encyclopedia is to 
be purchased, and notable works in Jewish thought and 
theology will be included. Toynbee's Study of History 
(unabridged), Reinach's classic work on anthropology 
and comparative religion, Orpheus, T. S. Eliot's col- 
lected poems and plays, works in the history of art and 
essays by Aldous Huxley were random items that some- 
what startled the eye of the browser. Religion and 
civilization are inextricably intertwined, and the St. 
Bede Library has recognized this fully. 

An interesting sidelight on the possibilities of the St. 
Bede collection and a tribute to the thoroughness of the 
cataloging, handwritten over the years by self-trained 
volunteers, came to view last summer when Monroe K. 
Spears, former editor of the Sewanee Review and out- 
standing scholar on W. H. Auden, was researching the 
duPont Library for an introduction that Auden had 
written to a religious work. Mr. Harkins tested the St. 
Bede catalog and was able to find (though not there 
precisely the one Spears was looking for) a similar in- 
troduction of which Dr. Spears had not previously been

The St. Becle collection, now in the duPont Library, is available to the general public as well as to students and faculty. 

in New York in 1937 by Katherine N. Rhoades, 
Mary S. Sims, and Annie Kate Gilbert, members of 
Trinity Church, the Library of St. Becle will be admin- 
istered by a committee which will determine policy and 
select acquisitions. The committee in the new Sewanee 
home of the Library of St. Bede is composed of Miss 
Annie Kate Gilbert and Miss Mary S. Sims of New 
York, the surviving founders; Mrs. Henry Lee Hobart 
Myers of Sewanee; Dr. Hugh Caldwell, professor of 
philosophy at the University of the South; T. Edward 
Camp, librarian of tire University's School of The- 
ology; William G. Harkins, University librarian; the 
Rev. William H. Ralston, assistant professor of Eng- 
lish and associate editor of the Sezvanee Revieiv; the 
Rev. Herbert S. Wentz, instructor in religion in the Col- 
lege; and the Rev. James Brettmann, professor of re- 
ligion in the College, chairman. 

In accord with past practice and the wishes of the 
St. Bede trustees, the majority of the committee will 
be lay persons and the committee will be self-per- 

When arrangements were made to convey this re- 
markable gift to the University of the South, Mr. Har- 
kins, the University librarian, hired a truck and with 
a member of the library staff drove to New York to 
bring the books to Sewanee, thus saving more than a 
thousand dollars for future acquisitions to the collec- 

Miss Annie Gilbert, one o!" the original founders of 
the St. Bede Library and still a trustee, has told us: 
"In October 1965 the American Church Union's Keble 
Award for Distinguished Service to God and Church 
was corporately conferred upon the three founders of 
the Library of St. Bede. The bestowal of this honor 
seemed to mark a climax in the current phase of the 
library's life and served as a spur to the trustees in the 
search for a new home that changed conditions now 
made necessary. 

"After thirty years the library had outgrown its 
space, transportation was increasingly difficult, main- 
tenance costs had risen sharp'y. 

"The search led to Sewanee, and a conference in New 
1 ork with Mr. Harkins, librarian of the beautiful 
new Jessie Ball duPont Library, and Father Ralston, 
representing the University's department of religion, 
confirmed the trustees in their belief that they had 
indeed found at Sewanee the best home for the Library 
of St. Bede. 

"It was with pride and satisfaction that in the sum- 
mer of 1967 the Library of St. Bede, with its books, 
furniture, and assets, was given to the University of 
the South at Sewanee to have there the kind of care — 
of people and of books — that had ever been the desire 
of those who became a part of it in its New York

... A Collection of Alumni Correspondence 

The first letter we quote with considerable cha- 
grin is to Arthur Chitty and is from Nash K. Bur- 
ger, '30, of the New York Times Book Review, 
no less. 

Dear Arthur, 

Enjoyed (as usual) recent (Dec.) issue of Sezvanee 
Nezvs, but I was desolated at no mention of my stir- 
ring biography of Rose O'Neale Greenhow, Confed- 
erate spy. I have, indeed, an official signed and sealed 
appointment from the Governor of Alabama appoint- 
ing me a Colonel in the Alabama State Militia (no 
fooling) on the strength of this volume. Perhaps it is 
not too late to get a mention in the Sewanee News. If 
not, I shall write no more books until you resume edi- 
torship of said News. 


The only plea the present editor can enter for this 
egregious omission is that of Dr. Johnson, with- 
out the majesty that gave even his apologies the 
weight of papal hulls: "Ignorance. Sheer igno- 
rance." Reviews of Mr. Burger's volume have 
since come to this previously ill-informed eye and 
they endorse the hook as a delight. 

In a more serious vein, James A. B. Haggart, '30, 
minister of the Community Methodist Church of 
Middletown, California, notes the publication of 
his neiv book, The Upward Path, published in 
England, and has generously offered to send copies 
to the duPont Library. 

Dear Friends: 

.... The book was six years in the writing and deals 
exclusively with the Book of John. Not only does it 
contain a complete text and new translation of the 
Gospel of John, but it interprets the Gospel, bringing 
out its inner meaning. It is written in the first person, 
as though Jesus were speaking to John about the writ- 
ing of his Gospel, in the same manner as the Book of 
Revelation. While it is true that many books have 
been written about John's work, there has been nothing 
like this one. 

Mr. Haggart's kind current information brings to 
mind part of a communication of three years ago 
from England, which we would like to recall in 
this year when the ecumenical movement has 
gained so much momentum and as a bow to the 
centennial of the Lambeth Conference of 1867 
which sent Bishop Quintard back to Sewanee with 
2,500 pounds sterling, enough to start the Univer- 
sity of the South in 1868 when hope for it had been 
all but abandoned. 

"Serving in the Methodist ministry it is extremely 
interesting for me to be in England at this time. Con- 
versations are going on between the Methodists and 
the Church of England as to union. I find myself 
chairman of many meetings where these discussions 
are going on and try diligently to be impartial. I am 
the recipient of many courtesies given me by the vic- 
ars of the Anglican Church, and their people as well. 
I have already participated in several joint services in 
the parish churches here and will exchange pulpits 
with two vicars who serve the same parishes as my- 
self (Cockington and Shiphay)." 

On quite another subject (Sewanee's lateral pass), 
but one which moved us all, is this: 

When I was a senior in high school, in the fall of 
1924, Sewanee came down to play against the Univer- 
sity of South Carolina, which had a fine team that year. 
Sewanee devastated US.C. by using the lateral pass. 
I believe it was the first time the lateral pass had ever 
been used in the South. Twice, when the ball was 
being laterally passed, it was fumbled but bounced up 
from the ground into the arms of the receiver. Most 
of the people who saw the game, including the news- 
paper reporters, thought that the lateral pass was sup- 
posed to be bounced on the ground. I understand that 
the next fall the Columbia High School coach had his 
backs practice the bounced pass for hours every day — 
Charlie Barron can attest to this. 

That game convinced me that Sewanee was the 
school to go to, but when I got there, I found that it 
was a long time between football seasons and that dur- 
ing this period I was stuck on the Mountain. Willy- 
nilly, I got some learning crammed into me. Professor 
Kayden taught me some economics. Dr. Knickerbocker 
some English, "Tabby" Nauts, Latin; General Jervey, 
math; and Major McKellar, speech. 

I found that when I went to law school at the Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania this learning really came in 
handy. I can't claim the credit, but it was good enough 
to make me the editor-in-chief of the Law Review and 
one of the head men in my class. During the many 
years since, practicing law in New York and in Colum- 
bia, I can attribute all my worldly success to Sewa- 
nee's bounced lateral pass.

Alumni Activities 

G Cecil Woods, chairman of the board of re- 
• gents, will be principal speaker for the Spring 
meeting of the Alumni Council scheduled April 5-6 and 
a host of new members will have the opportunity to 
attend their first meeting of the alumni organization's 
executive body. 

New members of the council are diocesan trustees 
who are alumni of the University. Elected to member- 
ship at the Council's fall meeting, they will add ap- 
proximately 45 members to the Council, which includes 
class and club presidents, national officers, past presi- 
dents of the association, alumni trustees and chairmen 
of standing committees. 

Termed one of the most successful, the fall Council 
meeting attracted some fifty members, many of whom 
arrived in Sewanee on Thursday afternoon to begin an 
intensive two-day schedule of meetings and discussions 
with officials about every aspect of the University 

Also present was Harry McPherson, special counsel 
to the President, who was speaker at a Friday night 
dinner. At the business meeting the Council heard 
reports from alumni vice presidents and from Albert 
Gooch, and then approved new programs for 1968. 

Approved were: 

■ The St. Luke's alumni program, under the direction 
of the Rev. Martin Tilson, vice president for St. Luke's, 
which includes the publication of a St. Luke's Alumni 
Newsletter (mailed with the St. Luke's Journal); the 
organization of a St. Luke's Book Club, which will offer 
at least four new books a year at a reduced price; a 
Fellows in Residence program, through which a num- 
ber of alumni clergy will be given the opportunity to 
return to Sewanee for a specified period — with expenses 
paid — of study; a Sewanee in Atlanta Seminar, to be 
co-sponsored by All Saints' Church, on March 26-28. 
"The Ministry of Change" is the theme of the con- 
ference, to which clergy and laymen from their parishes 
are invited. 

■ An alumni admissions program, under the direction 
of Louis Rice, vice president for admissions. He re- 
ported that he had asked some forty-five alumni to 
serve as admissions counselors with responsibility for 
representing the University in the forty cities in 
which they are located. He is also to write a personal 
letter to each young man accepted for admission to 






the University and to request an alumnus who lives in 
the same city to pay a personal visit to the young man 
and his family to answer questions and to assure them 
that we have a personal interest in them. 

■ The Sewanee Military Academy alumni program, 
directed by president William E. Ward III, is involved 
in the celebration of the Academy's Centennial year 
which includes an educational symposium in March, 
the Centennial commencement and efforts to secure 
the second $500,000 of a $1,500,000 fund raising effort. 

■ Alumni Church Support vice president Morse 
Kochtitzky has secured alumni chairmen for eleven 
of the owning dioceses and is pursuing a planned pro- 
gram for reaching individual parishes with the request 
of one dollar per communicant per year for Sewanee. 

Other plans approved are the Business Career Fel- 
lows, in which alumni corporation executives are asked 
to take a college student — preferably a rising senior — 
into the corporations' executive offices for a summer 
educational experience; the Vietnam Newsletter (see 
page thirty-three); a "continuing education" program 
for commencement which will include at least two semi- 
nars, led by members of the faculty and selected 
guests, and a prominent speaker for the class reunions 
dinner on Friday night. 

March 1968 



our tournaments highlight the closing weeks of 
the season for coaches and players of Sewanee's 
three winter sports squads. 

The College Athletic Conference basketball tourna- 
ment, February 24-26, will return to Julian Gymna- 
sium, where the first conference meet was held five 
years ago, and the Southeastern Intercollegiate Wrest- 
ling Association meet will follow the next weekend. 

Coach Horace Moore's wrestlers will head for St. 
Louis for their CAC meet the weekend of the basket- 
ball tournament and the swimming meet will be either 
February 25-26 or March 1-2 in St. Louis. 

At the break for final examinations in late January 
coach Lon Varnell's basketball team held a 5-5 record, 
the swimmers were 4-5 and the wrestlers showed a 1-3 

Leaders of the young basketball team were the 5- 
foot-n starting guards, freshman Barney Hudson and 
junior Frank Stainback. Hudson sported a 22.2 aver- 
age and a 92.9 per cent free throw shooting mark, 
among the best in the nation. Stainback was averaging 
15.7 points a game and topped the team with 44 as- 
sists. Others playing a key role were senior Mark 
Armstrong, junior Ron Shelton, sophomore Fred Jones, 
and freshmen Mike Burton and Johnny Johnson. 

The swimming team's 4-5 record was a pleasant 
surprise for coach Ted Bitondo, whose prospects were 
shattered by the loss of eight key letter winners, only 
one by graduation. 

Wins have been over Louisville, Chattanooga, De- 
Kalb and Emory, while the losses have been at the 
hands of bigger schools, including Georgia Tech, Van- 
derbilt and Tennessee. 

Top individuals have included Rick Dent, who low- 
ered the school record for the 200-yard backstroke to 
2:15.3 and doubled in the sprints, sprinter John Col- 
more and distance man Doug Baker. Also threatening 
school records are Doug Vanderbilt in the 100-yard 
butterfly and the medley relay team of Dent, Randy 
Love, Vanderbilt and Colmore. 

The wrestlers opened the year with a 32-10 win 
over CAC foe Washington University, but then 
dropped four-point decisions to powerful Georgia at 
Sewanee and Milligan and Maryville on the road. 

Captain Jack Baker leads the team with a 4-0 rec- 
ord, including three pins, in the 1^0- and 137-pound 
classes. Four men — Tee Parker, Bob Green, Bobby 
Lee and heavyweight John Colby — all share 3-1 rec- 

Fred Jones fights for control of 
the ball. 

Frank Stainback shoots 

Coach Lon Varnell, Sewa- 
nee basketball and Sewanee 
were featured in the January 
29 issue of Sports Illustrated 
magazine. Feature writer Har- 
old Peterson of Sports Illus- 
trated spent a week at Sewa- 
nee in November gathering- 
material for his story. 

Eleven members of Sewa- 
neee's College Athletic Con- 
ference championship football 
team were named to the all 
conference squad. Named to 
the team on offense were Mar- 
shall Boon, junior end; Mike 
Knickelbine, senior end; Win- 
ston Sheehan, junior guard; 
Mike Lmderwood, senior cen- 
ter; Charles Gignilliat, senior 
back; and Bubba Owens, 
sophomore back. 

Winning positions on the 
defensive team were Tim 
Hubbard, junior tackle; Mike 
Knickelbine, end; Dell Weible, 
sophomore g u a r d; Ernest 
Kirk, senior center; Jim 
Beene, junior back; and Bill 
Blount, sophomore back.

Rising Costs Temper Success 

1967 Gift Income 
Totals $1,454,215 


By Marcus L. Oliver 
Director of Development 

Gifts totaling $1,454,215.53 were received for all the 
divisions of the University of the South in 1967. Last 
year — with its single bequest of $1,400,000 — was a 
tough act to follow. Omitting this large bequest from 
the comparison, the 1967 gift income total topped 1966 
by $343,603.47. There were over a thousand more 
donors this year than last. 

Again the prayer of the University for "... a never- 
failing succession of benefactors . . ." has been an- 
swered. We are grateful on the Mountain! 

I would be less than honest if I did not admit to 
some concern about the narrowing margin ($43,000 
for the last fiscal year — see Figure 2) between operat- 
ing costs and income. With annual budgets steadily 
increasing it is obvious that income must follow if an 
erosion of quality is to be prevented. 

There are some encouraging signs. The number and 
percentage of alumni contributing are higher than last 
year by 368 and 4.3%. In only four other years before 
have more alumni made gifts. 

While the Church Support total is less than last 
year ($229,433 compared to $195,706) the 1966 figure 
includes $44,825 which was paid in 1965 in advance. 
The actual money received from churches this year is 
well ahead of last year. The Trustees' Committee on 
Church Support is imaginatively developing the chal- 
lenge to owning dioceses and their parishes to increase 
their financial assistance through Sewanee-in-the-Budg- 
et and we expect this important area of support to 
continue to grow. 

Strong increases in membership were experienced in 
the two prestige groups which were formed last year. 
The Vice-Chancellor's and Trustees' Society, whose 
members give or raise at least $1,000, gained sixty- 
one members for a total of 122. The Century Club,

for donors of between $100 and $999, tallied 551 mem- 
bers, increasing from 445 last year. 

I firmly believe that gift support from alumni, own- 
ing dioceses, and friends will increase proportionately 
to Sewanee's success in dispelling the unfortunate and 
unfounded myth of great wealth which is rife among 
many who believe in Sewanee. In my short association 
with the University nothing has impressed me more 
than the sheer ignorance of the financial facts of life 
which I find among Sewanee students, faculty, alumni, 
and friends. 

Let us review the facts. It is quite true that within 

the past fifteen years there has been an increase in 

gift support of Sewanee which has been phenomenal. 

The total endowment has moved from $5,400,000 in

About Alumni Giving . . . 

Responding to a challenge offer of $500 for each class reach- 
ing its assigned dollar or contributor goals, alumni of the Uni- 
versity of the South claimed an additional $20,500 for their 
University. More importantly, they nearly doubled 1966 alumni 
giving (from $106,359 to $193,629) and they increased the num- 
ber of contributors by a whopping 39%, giving 1967 the fifth 
highest number of alumni contributors in history. Total alumni 
giving (honorary, SMA and bequests) pushed the amount to 
$298,186 from 1,507 contributors. Classes reaching their assigned 
goals and winning the $500 challenge grant are: 1901 and earlier, 
'03, '07, '08, '10, '11, '13, '17, '18, '20, '21, '23, '24, '26, '27, '28, 
'29, '31, '33, '34, '35, '36, '37, '39, '41, '42, '47, '48, '49, "50, 
'51, '53, '54, '57, '59, '60, '61, '62, '63, '66. (These classes are 
also italicized in the accompanying table.) "The gains of 1967 
are substantial and an accomplishment of which we all should 
be justly proud," said Robert M. Ayres, Jr., president of the 
Associated Alumni, "yet the fact that the 1,354 donors repre- 
sent only 17.2% of our alumni family indicates that we have 
a terriffic opportunity and challenge for 1968."

the Budget, the gray bars Theological Education Sunday 

1967 Gifts . . . 

(continued from page nine) 
1953 to approximately #20,000,000 today. The physi- 
cal plant — buildings and facilities — has been increased 
by an expenditure of about $12,968,000. If these 
figures are considered alone one might easily get the 
impression of great wealth. But viewed in context 
quite another picture emerges. 

Operating costs in general have skyrocketed and the 
cost of operating a first-rate educational institution is 
no exception. You see that the operating budget has 
more than doubled in only ten years. Our fees and 
tuition already rank right at the top of Southern insti- 
tions and are viewed with alarm by all concerned. 

Our endowment for scholarships — phenomenally in- 
creased though it is — is still inadequate to meet care- 
fully screened needs of students. 

The simplest test of wealth is the balance sheet and, 
as can be seen in Figure 2, operating income exceeded 
expenses by a mere $43,000. A bad month in the 
stock market would have forced the University to 
borrow money on which to operate. Great wealth? . . . 

Funds in hand for the completion of construction 
contracts on Woods Science Laboratories are insuffici- 
ent by $376,913.75 and then it will be incompletely 
furnished and equipped. Great wealth? . . . hardly. 

A soccer field, badly needed and tentatively prom- 
ised, may not be built this year because of lack of 
funds. The present student union is woefully in- 
adequate for the needs of the current student body. 
Some married students and faculty are still crowded in 
sub-standard housing. Great wealth? . . . hardly.

founders' blueprint — is needed to return to the de- 
sired student/faculty relationship in 500-man colleges 
instead of our present 830-man college but must await 
funding. Great wealth? . . . hardly. 

The woman's college, that not-so-magical solution 
to Sewanee's tendency to follow the country's men's 
colleges in becoming a "suitcase" college, is little more 
than an item in our case book for future philanthrop- 
ists. Great wealth? . . . hardly! 

Any college which has Sewanee's well-deserved repu- 
tation for excellence . . . any college which has Se- 
wanee's ever-apparent band of believers . . . any college 
which is proudly owned by nearly a half million 
Episcopalians . . . any such college has, without a 
doubt, great potential wealth. 

This is a wealth more to be desired than fine gold. I 
am confident that the call will be heard and that Se- 
wanee's right to survive in excellence will be assured.

Class Distinctions 


Dr. M. V. Hargrove retired from 
general practice at age eighty-seven in 
January, 1967, but still sees many of his 
old patients. "They won't let me retire 
for good," he says. He still Reaches 
three Bible classes each week in the 
church where he was choir director for 
sixty years. He lives in Oakdale, Lou- 
isiana, and would like to hear from 
other '07ers. 

The Rev. A. C. D. Noe, SAE, rector 
emeritus of historic St. Thomas Church, 
Bath, North Carolina, was honored by 
his former parish with a "Noe Day" in 
November. The Rt. Rev. Thomas 
Wright, '26, SN, bishop of East Caro- 
lina, was guest preacher for the service. 
Other guests included the mayor of 
Bath, who officially made the declara- 
tion of "Noe Day." Mr. Noe still 
serves as president of the St. Thomas 
Restoration Committee and is an active 
member of the Historic Bath Commis- 
sion, having never missed a meeting 
since it was organized in 1959. 


The Rev. Canon William S. Turner, 
SAE, has retired as rector of Trinity 
Church, New Orleans, a parish which 
he had served for twenty-two years 
before his January 31 retirement. He 
has been asked by the Rt. Rev. Girault 
M. Jones, '28, bishop of Louisiana, to 
become Canon to the Ordinary. A 
graduate of both the College and the 
School of Theology, Canon Turner 
went to Trinity Church in 1945. It has 
grown from a membership of 1,545 to 
2,850 during his ministry and has be- 
gun sponsorship of Trinity Episcopal 
School, which today has more than 
three hundred students. He has been

The Sewanee News 





Reflections on a Great Man . . . 

(continued from 
inside front cover) 

improvised blind all of a bitter cold day, 
who was an all-Southern center when 
he played every minute of every game 
for Sewanee in the tough old days, 
skinning knees and shins on the rock 
out-croppings of the field that served 
in 1909; most of all, perhaps, we want 
to remember the man who with a 
twinkle of the eye made the most con- 
troversial and bitter situations come 
into perspective. 

One thing we recall are the two- or 
three-foot snowdrifts that crippled Se- 
wanee mountain from time to time, 
when eighteen-year-old boys called in 
to say that their cars were stuck a 
mile away and they couldn't come in 
to work or class. Bishop Juhan, well 
on into his seventies, put on his hunt- 
ing boots and marched two miles to 
report on the dot to his desk as di- 
rector of development, a position for 
which he never accepted a cent, indeed 
expended his own resources in its pur- 

He hired each summer a crew of 
boys to beautify the campus and earn 
their year's tuition or part of it. He 
selected promising students for schol- 
arships and saw to it that the money 
for them was forthcoming. He never 
missed a home football game and very 
few away ones, and chewed more tor- 
mented cigarettes in practice sessions 
than any man alive. He always bought 
the victorious athletes steak dinners. 
His most prized trophy was one his 
"boys" gave him, naming him honor- 
ary captain of their team. 

He could spot a well camouflaged 
duck on a swamp a mile away, but he 
groped helplessly on his desk for his 

March 1968 

glasses, and hardly ever really got 
around to cleaning them. 

His quips were endless, humorous 
and never barbed, though occasionally 
on the ribald side, and all of us here 
are still too crushed by the thought of 
so much life gone to recall them, but 
they will come to us again. Perhaps 
alumni reading this will help us keep 
a living archive on this man who, next 
tc his Church, Sewanee, football, and 
promising students, loved a good yarn. 

On one hunting trip, shortly after 
being elected the youngest diocesan in 
the Episcopal Church, he spent the 
time on the way to his destination 
yarning with the locomotive engineer, 
in tattered hunting shirt and cap. Af- 
ter a time the engineer said he, too, 
was an Episcopalian and did he (Bish- 
op Juhan) know the new bishop of 
Florida. "Sure," said Bishop Juhan, 
"I'm him." 

"Oh nuts," said the engineer, "keep 
your stories reasonable." 

Louise Davis of the Nashville Ten- 
nessean, who wrote a magazine feature 
aptly titled "Gamest of the Bishops," 
spoke movingly of Bishop Juhan's 
great capacity for joy in spite of the 
tragedy and near-tragedies of his life. 
'Bishop Juhan once told a Sewanee 
graduating class that 'enjoyance' was 
one of the most important things of 

"You should be prepared and capaci- 
tated to enjoy yourself or you have 
failed to attain that rare and priceless 
ability which Christian education at 
this level has offered you and should 
have given you," he told the graduates. 

"A man must learn to enjoy himself 
or he has not come to his best self. 
There is something wrong with him." 

He loved music and gardening and 

cooking and was chief cook on hunt- 
ing trips. 

Bishop Juhan has said repeatedly 
that the greatest thrill of his life 
(with the successful conclusion of Se- 
wanee's Ford Challenge Grant Cam- 
paign a close second) was the annual 
Thanksgiving battle with Vanderbilt in 
1909. Both teams were unbeaten, and 
Sewanee had not defeated Vanderbilt 
in seven years. Sewanee won, 16 to 5. 

Bishop Juhan lost a son to World 
War II in 1944, and could still say at 
Commencement 1945: 

"Life is love and love is stronger 
than death. We believe in life after 
death because we live, because we love, 
because we long. It is deeper in us 
than any theory — therefore we trust it. 

"Now in the contemplation again of 
the courage of these men who have 
died, of their love, of their sacrifice, 
shall we not claim it as our right and 
privilege to make some offering worthy 
of them and theirs? 

"Thrill with the joy of girded men 
And go on forever and fail and go on 

And be mauled to the earth and arise, 
And contend for the shade of a word, 
A thing not seen with the eyes. 
With the half of a broken hope for a 

pillow at night 
That somehow the right is the right 
And the smooth will bloom from the 
And that's enough." 

But what some of us like best to re- 
member about Bishop Juhan here at 
Sewanee is his answer when asked 
what he would like to do now that he 
had reached retirement age. "Part my 
hair in the middle again," he said, "and 
play Vandy."

Heart and Lungs of the Corpus 

The office of provost was created in 1961. Ac- 
cording to the Vice-Chancellor's directive at that 
time, "The provost will be giving full concen- 
tration to academic, developmental, and non-commer- 
cial units of the corporation. Our academic organiza- 
tion incorporates, of course, the Academy, the College, 
and the School of Theology, and also the Air Force 
ROTC, the library, the registrar's and admissions of- 
fices, the athletic department, the health officer, and the 
Sewanee Review." 

The office of dean of administration, created in 195 1 
and held by Dr. Gaston S. Bruton until he became the 
first provost, was abolished. Supervision of the auxili- 
ary enterprises and general University maintenance be- 
came the province of the business manager. 

As provost, Dr. Bruton remained the vice-president 
of the corporation and in Dr. McCrady's absence acted 
as Vice-Chancellor. 

The provost has determined the budget, balancing 
needs against expectations, and allocated a portion to 
each department, all of whom felt that they needed a 
great deal more than they were getting, and managed 
to keep everybody reasonably cheerful. 

The provost is as likely and has been as ready to 
hear problems about the borrowing of tape recorders 
as inquiries from the Ford Foundation about how we 
could use ^2,^00,000 over a ten-year period better than 
someone else could. 

Dr. Bruton as provost has been the heart and lungs 
of the University corpus, as the boards of trustees and 
regents and the Vice-Chancellor have been its head. His 
valedictory on its lifeblood appears on p. 9.

The Provostship To Change Hands 


One of the most important posts in the ongoing 
life of the University will change hands when 
Dr. Gaston S. Bruton retires as provost on 
August 31, to be succeeded the next day by Dr. Wil- 
liam B. Campbell. 

Dr. Bruton, who has by some unexplainable alchemy 
maintained the constant affection and respect of every- 
one on the Mountain while making thousands of de- 
cisions that could not possibly please everybody and 
without modifying his gruff humor and utter honesty, 
joined the University of the South faculty in 1925 as 
assistant professor of mathematics. He became an as- 
sociate professor two years later, full professor in 1942, 
and chairman of the department in 1945. 

He was secretary of the faculty and senate 1946-51, 
dean of the summer school 1947-52, dean of administra- 
tion and vice-president 1952-61, and has been provost 
since that time. He also served as dean of men for a 
year and a half during the period 1951-53. 

He coached the tennis team for thirty years, with 
219 wins, 113 losses, and thirteen ties. He brought his 
computer-like mind to bear on tournament strategy 
and came up with a victory mostly by wily matching. 
He was one of the first coaches to be elected, in 1967, 
to the Tennis Hall of Fame. 

Gaston Swindell Bruton was born in Newton Grove, 
North Carolina, November 22, 1902, the son of the 
Rev. Raleigh Alexander and Clyde Swindell Bruton. 
He attended Tabor and Lumberton High Schools in 
North Carolina, and was graduated from Lumberton 
in 1919. His first two college years were at Trinity 
College (Duke University) and his A.B. and M.A. 
are from the University of North Carolina, his Ph.D. 
from the University of Wisconsin. 

Dr. Bruton's extra-curricular activities have been 
myriad and legend. His wit has made him one of the 
most sought-after after-dinner speakers around. Lan- 
guage is one of his startling avocations, and he has 
presented many lectures and papers on etymology and 
semantics. Numismatics and contract bridge yield tn 
his data-processing brain — he has published upwards 
of twenty-five articles on bridge. 

His memory is phenomenal, and has served the Uni- 

versity not only in his administrative capacity but in 
countless other ways, including the error-free presen- 
tation of diplomas at Commencement. 

He was a member of the Franklin County Board of 
Education for eight years and chairman for three; a 
justice of the peace; president of the Sewanee Civic 
Association; chairman of the Franklin County Masons 
and of the Community Chest. 

Among the responsibilities he has assumed is the 
taking up of tickets for football games. We like to 
think he does this because he enjoys it, but all the years 
of wrestling with the budget have won him such a 
reputation for parsimony that it is said he collects 
tickets himself to avoid the expense of hiring someone 
else to do it. 

Dr. William Bruner Campbell, who will suc- 
ceed Dr. Bruton as provost, is an associate 
professor of history in the College. He joined 
the faculty in 1962, having taught at Mississippi State 
College for Women and the National Adult School Un- 
ion in England. 

He was born in Palestine, Texas, July 10, 192^, the 
son of Thomas Mitchell Campbell, Jr., and Erma 
Langston Campbell. His father was a banker and 
state fire insurance commissioner in Texas and his 
grandfather, Thomas Mitchell Campbell, was governor 
of Texas 1907-1911. 

Campbell is a graduate of Davidson College in North 
Carolina, 1947, with honors in English and history, 
and has the M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of 
Texas. He has also attended the Institute of Histori- 
cal Research in London and the University of Mexico. 

He was in the U. S. Navy during World War II and 
during the Korean war he served as an intelligence 
officer with the rank of captain in the U. S. Air Force, 
attached to British Intelligence. He is still in the Air 
Force Reserves. 

Dr. Campbell's hobbies are creative writing, collect- 
ing art, and "building houses." He has had two vol- 
umes of fiction published, as well as an historical work, 
William Gordon, Priest and Commissary (Michigan 
State University Press, 1963). 

May 1968 

On and Off 
the Mountain 

The Board of Regents at its February meeting 
elected to discontinue the operation of St. Mary's 
School for girls, a responsibility the University as- 
sumed when the Sisters of St. Mary gave it up last 
year. Faculty and staff daughters will be accommo- 
dated at the Sewanee Military Academy, a fact given 
a nation-wide play by the Associated Press — Male 
Stronghold Stormed, and all that. It is not locally con- 
templated, however, that the admission of some forty 
girl day students will bring about the training of Ama- 
zons or any sort of revolution, although the cadets 
perked up visibly at the news. 

The regents also voted an operating budget for the 
next academic year of $6,351,867, over a quarter of a 
million dollars higher than the last budget; the au- 
thorization of a new dormitory on the site of the sec- 
ond college, which already includes Benedict and Ma- 
lon Courts Halls; and the promotion of Andrew Lytle, 
editor of the Sewanee Review, from lecturer in English 
to professor of English. 

The Sewanee Military Academy has celebrated its 
Centennial year with sober fanfare and much solid ac- 
complishment. A symposium, March 16-20, had Fred 
Hechinger, education editor of the New York Times, 
as keynote speaker and a distinctive array of educators 
plus a Harvard psychiatrist facing the topic, "Our Chil- 
dren: What Are They to Become?" Ground has been 
broken for a handsome new academic building by the 
same architect, Edwin A. Keeble, SS'23, who made 
Cravens Hall a honey. The year-long calendar of 
highly notable events will be climaxed by the Centen- 
nial Commencement, when the Rt. Rev. John E. Hines, 
'50, presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church in Ameri- 
ca, will be the orator. 

The School of Theology held a curriculum con- 
sultation March 15-20 in a major thrust to put the 
Pusey Report on theological education into action. Rep- 
resentatives from twenty seminaries of twelve Protes- 
tant denominations in fourteen states met in intensive 
workshop sessions with five consultants and four 
"trainers" from the fields of religion, education, psy- 
chiatry, psychology and school architecture to thrash 
out basic new approaches to preparing men for the 

Baccalaureate preacher for the University's one- 
hundredth Commencement will be the Rt. Rev. 
Thomas George Vernon Inman, D.D., Bishop of Natal 
in South Africa, who will be heard here for the third 
time in that capacity. Honorary degree recipients 
will be the Rt. Rev. Richard Beamon Martin, GST'62, 
suffragan bishop of Long Island, who was to receive 
the degree last year but could not come; the Rt. Rev. 
Francisco Reus-Froylan, missionary bishop of Puerto 
Rico; and the Rt. Rev. Christoph Keller, Jr., GST'54, 
bishop coadjutor of Arkansas. 

Two new scholarships have been established in 
the College and were awarded for the first time this 
semester. The Bruce Scholarship in Forestry, given 
by the E. L. Bruce wood products company of Mem- 
pis and named in honor of the company's honorary 
chairman of the board in recognition of his contribu- 
tions to the forestry field, is held by John Eric Kunz 
of Tracy City. Michael Harries Wills, a junior politi- 
cal science major, is the first student to be awarded the 
Griffis Scholarship for a combat veteran of the war in 
Vietnam. The Griffis Scholarship was founded by 
W. A. Griffis, Jr., an attorney in San Angelo, Texas, 
and the father of two University of the South graduates 
-William A. Griffis III, '61, and Donald W. Griffis, 
'64. The office of financial aid reports that the Uni- 
versity's scholarship program has been built up to the 
point that no qualified student need hesitate to apply 
for financial reasons. 

Harding Chambers Woodall, '17 (1896-1967), has 
been memorialized in the new Sigma Alpha Epsilon 
chapter house he helped substantially to build. Woodall 
Memorial Hall was dedicated March 9, with the Rev. 
G. Cecil Woods, Jr., '47, offering the service and Stan- 
yarne Burrows, '29, president of the house corporation, 
presenting the house to the active chapter, represented 
by John Walker Payne III. G. Cecil Woods, '21, was 
the SAE Founders' Day speaker that evening. 

A warmly received addition to the campus is the 
Hospitality Shop in the business office's former quarters 
behind Thompson Union. Manned, or womanned, by 
charming and bustling ladies for the benefit of Emer- 
ald-Hodgson Hospital, it offers hand-crafted items, 
clothing in good condition, a wide range of new and 
used books, coffee and home-made cake and Tuesday 
lunch among original paintings, marked for sale. By 
mid-April the thriving enterprise had turned over 
$624 to the hospital toward a new isolette. Mrs. 
George Falk is manager and she and her husband are 
responsible for converting cast-offs into a background 
of considerable charm. All manner of contributions 
are invited.

an experience that we shall long remember. Not only 
were we impressed by the beauty and the serenity of 
the place, but more important we were impressed by 
the conduct and attitude of the boys who attend this

here at Sewanee. These students don't ask, 'What will 
I get out of it?' but 'What can I dor' The students' 
main concern here was NOT 'How can I avoid the 
draft?' These students were doing things and not just 
waiting for fate to take over. The University of the

When I left Sewanee (the institution you may have 
thought I was talking about) in 1949, the total college 
enrollment in the country was about two and one-half 
million. Today it is almost six million. Back then 
the colleges were spending about two billion two hun- 
dred million dollars for current operations. Now they 
are spending over thirteen billion. In 1949 four hun- 
dred million dollars was going into plant expansion. 
Now the figure is almost three and one-half billion an-

then — nearly four billion as against five hundred thirty 
million back in 1949.

hunting when a young man is right for a certain soli- 
tude, when he can make those combinations of thought 
and feeling that he will one day sternly separate into 
reason and emotion, each in its lonely grave. There 
is a time for wondering about ideas of God before 
settling on a middle class Sunday Protestant version. 
There is a time when a young man needs to build a the- 
ory of the good life before he accepts ordinary life as 

Sewanee gives him such a time — at a price to be 
sure. When he leaves here and goes on to graduate 
school he may find himself outclassed by a crowd of 
subway strap hangers who have read three times as 
much, been challenged twice as hard, and who are far 
better prepared to draw a bead on the main thing — 
getting on. He wants to study seventeenth-century 
poems, all of them. They want to write about John 
Donne's use of the double "e" in "me" and "thee." 
They are intently focused on an associate professor-

full of enormous potential for absorbing a broad range 
of thought and information about man's progress from 
the cave to the pjresent day, elect to concentrate on the 
enzyme to the exclusion of all else. Others are taught 
the techniques of teaching teachers of teachers. The 
choice doesn't really seem to matter. The society seems 
to be saying, to pervert a phrase of E. M. Forster's, 
"Only matriculate." Somebody — IBM, or Metropoli- 
tan Life, or the government or the graduate schools

will be waiting outside the university with a net when 
you graduate ready to capture you and feed you. We 
need educated people. 

The Coleman report on equal opportunity in 
education, prepared at the request of Congress, 
suggests that the average Negro child graduating 
from the twelfth grade of high school today actually 
performs at about the ninth-grade level. What would 
a study show about the average college graduate to- 
day? I think it would show that he is pretty good in 
a very narrow track. 

William Arrowsmith, a classical scholar and teacher, 
takes a dim view of this as a classical scholar might be 
expected to — there are very few research grants in the 
field of Greek drama. He lays the blame for it not on 
the graduate but on the undergraduate schools which 
have become, as he says, mere servants of national and 
professional interests. In such a situation the role of 
the teacher has become that of a desiccated function- 
ary. Teaching, he says, is not honored among us, either 
because its function is grossly misconceived or its cul- 
tural value not understood. The reason is the over- 
whelming positivism of our technocratic society and 
the arrogance of scholarship. 

"By making education the slave of scholarship," Ar- 
rowsmith says, "the university has renounced its re- 
sponsibility to human culture and its old proud claim 
to possess as educator and moulder of men an ecumeni- 
cal function. It has disowned, in short, what teaching 
has always meant, a care and a concern for the future 
of man, a platonic love of the species, not for what it 
is but for what it might be. It is a momentous refusal." 
To some degree the big institutions are right. The 
problems our society is trying to cope with today will 
not automatically yield to art history or English ma- 
jors. We need systems analysts and biochemists, and 
as we need them so we have to pay for them, for their 
training is expensive. 


ut is the multiversity concentrating almost 
entirely on cutting deeper into the forest of the 
unknown and neglecting to educate those who 
must try to civilize what is already cleared? Is it trying 
to produce informed men and women as well as trained 
ones? Is it interested in people who one day ought to 
be making value judgments for the scientists and en- 

There is another kind of questioning. What's the 
multiversity's relevance for the millions of city kids 
who emerge every year from third-rate high schools, 
performing so poorly that they can neither take ad- 
vantage of traditional college training nor acquire a 
promising job? 

What I'm coming to believe is that the country needs 
and can have three kinds of educational institutions 

beyond the high school level. First, it needs the mam- 
moth university graduate schools. They are the most 
convenient place for performing basic research and the 
most likely place for training specialists and profes- 

Second, it needs many more small liberal arts colleges 
whose resources ought to be considerably augmented 
by private and public funds. These colleges ought to do 
the basic work of educating young people to care about 
the future of man. They ought to be better than most 
of them are today. They ought to be places where the 
teacher is honored if he's good at teaching, not on the 
basis of his production of scholarly articles, or the num- 
ber of meetings he attends in Washington or Cam- 
bridge. Touching and quickening the spirit of the stu- 
dent, causing him to want to search for knowledge for 
his own sake, should be the standard of good teaching. 
Those who cannot do it should be farmed out to the 
graduate schools. 

Third, I think we should explore creating a 
new kind of institution in the cities. Its object 
would be, candidly expressed, the development 
of competence, not excellence. If young Negro high 
school graduates are, as Coleman suggests, producing 
at the ninth-grade level, these institutions would try to 
raise that in four years of part-time study and work 
to about the junior level of college competence, not 
competence in urban problem solving but in basic prob- 
lem solving itself, how to get from "A" to "B." 

The teachers here would not need an alphabetical 
series of degrees after their names. They would be per- 
sons who had proven their ability to work with disad- 
vantaged people. 

I think such an institution would give the poor city 
teen-ager something a trade school or job training pro- 
gram could not give him, the competence to deal more 
authoritatively with his experience. Given that com- 
petence the chances are pretty good that responsibility 
would follow soon alter. There you have it. One more 
vague proposal for improving the higher educational 

The man I work for, who used to teach school in a 
little town in South Texas, cares more about education 
than about anything else in the country. He sees it in 
the traditional American sense, as the only really cer- 
tain door of opportunity for people born outside of 
great affluence. And he has persuaded the Congress to 
devote billions to it at every level, indeed to triple those 
billions in four years' time. That we needed as a be- 

Now we ought to take the next step to make educa- 
tion serve us as it ought to. Sewanee alumni, meeting

Additional rooms can be equipped when needed.

The Financial Crisis 


Provost of the University of the Soutli 

The amount of money currently being spent on 
higher education is greater than it has ever been. 
Nevertheless, anyone conversant with the finan- 
cial needs of colleges and universities knows that the 
next decade will be a most critical period for many in- 
stitutions. Just what is the outlook for a small private 
liberal arts college? 

Each week, on the average, a new public college is 
founded; each month a private college closes, merges, 
or becomes state-owned. Fifty years ago sixty percent 
of college students were in private institutions; today 
the figure is thirty-two percent; by 1980 the prediction 
is twenty percent. Several experts have tolled the knell 
for all four-year liberal arts colleges, public and pri- 
vate. The reasons given are that liberal arts are now 
impracticable, and the four-year colleges are made into 
grist by the millstones of the graduate schools above 
and the junior colleges below. Many of the large pri- 
vate universities are receiving money from government 
sources; on the other hand, the public institutions are 
draining off much of the gift support that formerly 
went to private colleges. Coeducational colleges, in- 
cluding coordinate colleges for men and women, have 
sharply increased. These colleges receive a much higher 
percentage of operating expenses from gifts than do 
men's colleges or women's colleges separately. 

Within the past ten years faculty salaries have al- 
most doubled, student charges have doubled, and budg- 
ets have spiraled. One hears about the shortage of 
teachers on all sides, and every college president is 
familiar with the teacher who wants twice as much 
salary, and half as much teaching load, as he now has. 
Both teacher and student think that small classes are 
not only highly desirable, but almost an absolute ne- 
cessity. A student-teacher ratio of 10:1 is acceptable, 
provided a ratio of 8:1 is not obtainable; of course, 
for graduate students a ratio of five or six to one is 

At one time a small college was one with fewer than 
three hundred students, and many of our alumni and 
faculty shuddered when we passed five hundred. Even 
though the decision was reached in the spring of 1962 
to have the number of students increased to 1,200, or 
1,500-1,600 including women, next fall will be the third 

straight year without increase in the student body. For 
several years I tried to learn the least number of stu- 
dents a small college could have and still operate eco- 
nomically. Prior to 1961 the smallest number I had 
seen mentioned was 1,400, but in that year I came 
across the figure of 1,200. That was the figure used 
in our application to the Ford Foundation. 

In the summer of 1963 I read an article in College 
and University Journal by Sidney Tickton. Mr. 
Tickton probably knows more about small colleges than 
any other person in the United States. He has inspired 
ninety-five percent of the colleges to plan ten years 
ahead, and sixty-one percent of the colleges, including 
ours, have used his book, A Ten-Year College Budget. 
His article was based on an address delivered before 
the Council for the Advancement of Small Colleges. 
He said Beardsley Ruml believed that no institution 
would be able to remain solvent with fewer than a 
thousand students, and his own guess was that the 
figure would be closer to 1,500 by 1975. He told the 
Council that although no one knew precisely what the 
minimum size for survival was, he believed that fifty- 
six out of the fifty-eight members of the Council were 
below the minimum. He also said that he was "not 
ready to write off the private colleges. However, there 
is real concern for worry about five hundred institu- 
tions that are not in the strong prestige group." 

In light of the facts presented in the special report 
entitled "The Plain Fact Is . . ." and in view of the 
problem I have mentioned, I feel we need to ask, and 
to answer, a serious question: is it possible for a pri- 
vate liberal arts college, for men only, not to grow in 
size, not to accept government aid, to adopt a 10:1 
student-teacher ratio, and to survive? My answer is 
NO. The six implied limitations are too many; I sug- 
gest that we retain the important and discard the 

I believe in the necessity for both public and private 
education, and I think the loss of the latter would be 
a catastrophe. I further believe that the liberal arts are 
here to stay. Before people can communicate there 
must be a body of common knowledge. This common 
knowledge must deal with methods and motives, with 


May 1968 

reasons and procedures and values, rather than with 
facts. Within ten years, half the facts will change; 
but with a body of common knowledge and means of 
communication, i.e., with a heritage of liberal arts, 
people can always learn new facts. 

facing all private institutions. I believe that 
most have answered in the affirmative, feel- 
ing that Life With Uncle is preferable to Life Without 
Uncle. I shall beg this question by saying that at 
present, whether it is wise or unwise for the University 
to accept federal aid, I think we can survive without 
it. Hence I accept three restrictions: to remain under 
private control, to be a liberal arts college, and not to 
accept government aid. If we are to retain financial 
solvency, I believe the other three limitations, viz., to 
remain a college for men, not to grow, and to have a 
teacher for every ten students, must be removed. 

Two years ago the Southern Association of Colleges 
and Schools participated in a study of high school 
seniors in eleven southern states. Over fifty-three per- 
cent of those replying ranked in the top third of their 
class, with five percent in the bottom third. Twenty- 
eight percent preferred to attend a small college (up to 
1,500 students), and fifty-six percent chose a medium 
size college (1,500-5,000 students). In the choice be- 
tween a four-year college and a two-year college, 
eighty-two percent chose the first; ninety-two percent 
favored coeducational colleges; eighty-one percent pre- 
ferred an out-of-town school. These eleven states pro- 
vide us with seventy-eight percent of our students. Ap- 
parently the great majority of good students in this 
area prefer a four-year coeducational boarding college. 
These figures are cheering if we grow moderately and 
accept women. Otherwise they are not. 

Within the last two decades, particularly, a great 
deal of study has been spent in educational research. 
Most people consider any research as something eso- 
teric or beyond comprehension. A physicist will keep 
up with research in physics but not with research in 
education. Unfortunately the same is true of most 
faculty members and many administrators. It is hard 
10 keep from being irritated when one hears a colleague 

propounding or defending a thesis that has been cor- 
rectly labeled folklore for fifteen years. Here are some 
items of educational folklore: the smaller the student- 
teacher ratio the better; students learn more in small 
classes than in large ones; students learn less in lecture 
courses than in discussion groups; faculty with a lighter 
teaching load do mere research; a good student learns 
more from his instructor than a poor student does. 
These statements should keep me unpopular with my 
peers for quite some time. 

The advantages of small colleges are many 
and are fairly well known. The handicaps, ex- 
cept for those colleges too small to be viable, 
are fewer and often unrecognized. Thus one serious 
handicap of many small colleges is in trying to do too 
much, to be all things to all men. I think a knowledge 
of Russian is desirable, but I have doubted that small 
colleges should start teaching Russian. My doubts 
seemed justified last fall when a survey showed that 
151 colleges had discontinued their Russian programs. 
Apparently the need for instruction in Russian was 
less than anticipated, or else the difficulties were con- 
siderably greater. I suggest that Hindi and Mandarin 
be left to some large university, perhaps the one I have 
just heard about that is offering instruction in sixty- 
seven languages. I am indebted to President Spald- 
ing of Franklin and Aaarshall for the story about a 
noted mathematician visiting his campus who said, in 
all seriousness and with telling effect, that he had ob- 
served a strange phenomenon in his travels: suddenly 
all the universities are preoccupied with teaching and 
all the colleges are concerned with research. 

I am convinced that the University of the South has 
a unique place in the future. In my opinion the strong, 
small (1,200-2,000), private, liberal arts coeducational 
colleges, with well defined objectives and careful ad- 
ministration, will receive the financial help that un- 
questionably will be needed. The small college must 
not ape the large university; it must not allow itself 
to be sidetracked from its principal task: to preserve, 
extend, and particularly to disseminate knowledge in 
an atmosphere of contemplation where wisdom surely

Plain Fact Is .. . 

... our colleges and 
universities "are facing 
what might easily 
become a crisis" 

Our colleges and universities, over the last 20 years, have 
experienced an expansion that is without precedent — in build- 
ings and in budgets, in students and in professors, in reputation 
and in rewards — in power and pride and in deserved prestige. As 
we try to tell our countrymen that we are faced with imminent 
bankruptcy, we confront the painful fact that in the eyes of the 
American people — and I think also in the eyes of disinterested 
observers abroad — we are a triumphant success. The observers 
seem to believe — and I believe myself — that the American cam- 
pus ranks with the American corporation among the handful of 
first-class contributions which our civilization has made to the 
annals of human institutions. We come before the country to 
plead financial emergency at a time when our public standing 
has never been higher. It is at the least an unhappy accident of

so, it admits ruefully: "Many of the best high-school

as one of the nation's finest, cannot offer its students 
the usual range of instruction this year. Despite inten-

were unfilled at the start of the academic year. 

► A church-related college in the South, whose de- 
nomination's leaders believe in strict separation of church 
and state, severs its church ties in order to seek money 
from the government. The college must have such money, 
say its administrators — or it will die.

Nor does it affect only one or two types of

the future of their institutions. With rare exceptions, the 
presidents agreed on this assessment: That the money is 
not now in sight to meet the rising costs of higher educa- 
tion . . . to serve the growing numbers of bright, qualified 
students . . . and to pay for thp myriad activities that Amer- 
icans now demand of their colleges and universities.

of the coming decade. 

— A university president 

being deferred for lack of money, the presidents said. 
Many admitted to budget-tightening measures reminis- 
cent of those taken in days of the Great Depression. 

Is this new? Haven't the colleges and universities al- 
ways needed money? Is there something different about 
the situation today? 

The answer is "Yes" — to all three questions. 

The president of a large state university gave us this 
view of the over-all situation, at both the publicly and 
the privately supported institutions of higher education: 

"A good many institutions of higher learning are 
operating at a deficit," he said. "First, the private col- 
leges and universities: they are eating into their endow- 
ments in order to meet their expenses. Second, the public 
institutions. It is not legal to spend beyond our means, 
but here we have another kind of deficit: a deficit in 
quality, which will be extremely difficult to remedy even 
when adequate funding becomes available." 

Other presidents' comments were equally revealing: 

► From a university in the Ivy League: "Independent 
national universities face an uncertain future which 
threatens to blunt their thrust, curb their leadership, and 
jeopardize their independence. Every one that I know 
about is facing a deficit in its operating budget, this 
year or next. And all of us are hard-put to see where we 
are going to get the funds to meet the educational de- 
mands of the coming decade." 

► From a municipal college in the Midwest: "The best 
word to describe our situation is 'desperate.' We are 
operating at a deficit of about 20 per cent of our total 

► From a private liberal arts college in Missouri: "Only 
by increasing our tuition charges are we keeping our 
heads above water. Expenditures are galloping to such 
a degree that I don't know how we will make out in the 

► From a church-related university on the West Coast: 
"We face very serious problems. Even though our tuition 
is below-average, we have already priced ourselves out of 
part of our market. We have gone deeply into debt for 
dormitories. Our church support is declining. At times, 
the outlook is grim." 

► From a state university in the Big Ten: "The bud- 
get for our operations must be considered tight. It is 
less than we need to meet the demands upon the univer- 
sity for teaching, research, and public service." 

► From a small liberal arts college in Ohio: "We are 

on a hand-to-mouth, 'kitchen' economy. Our ten-year 
projections indicate that we can maintain our quality 
only by doubling in size." 

► From a small college in the Northeast: "For the 
first time in its 150-year history, our college has a planned 
deficit. We are holding our heads above water at the 
moment— but, in terms of quality education, this can- 
not long continue without additional means of support." 

► From a state college in California: "We are not 
permitted to operate at a deficit. The funding of our bud- 
get at a level considerably below that proposed by the 
trustees has made it difficult for us to recruit staff mem- 
bers and has forced us to defer very-much-needed im- 
provements in our existing activities." 

► From a women's college in the South: "For the 
coming year, our budget is the tightest we have had in 
my fifteen years as president." 

What's gone wrong? 
Talk of the sort quoted above may 
seem strange, as one looks at the un- 
paralleled growth of America's colleges 
and universities during the past decade: 

► Hardly a campus in the land does not have a brand- 
new building or one under construction. Colleges and 
universities are spending more than $2 billion a year for 
capital expansion. 

► Faculty salaries have nearly doubled in the past 
decade. (But in some regions they are still woefully low.) 

► Private, voluntary support to colleges and univer- 
sities has more than tripled since 1958. Higher educa- 
tion's share of the philanthropic dollar has risen from 
1 1 per cent to 17 per cent. 

► State tax funds appropriated for higher education 
have increased 44 per cent in just two years, to a 1967-68 
total of nearly $4.4 billion. This is 2 1 4 per cent more than 
the sum appropriated eight years ago. 

► Endowment funds have more than doubled over 
the past decade. They're now estimated to be about $12 
billion, at market value. 

► Federal funds going to institutions of higher educa- 
tion have more than doubled in four years. 

► More than 300 new colleges and universities have 
been founded since 1945. 

► All in all, the total expenditure this year for U.S. 
higher education is some $18 billion — more than three 
times as much as in 1955. 

Moreover, America's colleges and universities have 
absorbed the tidal wave of students that was supposed to 
have swamped them by now. They have managed to ful- 
fill their teaching and research functions and to under- 
take a variety of new public-service programs — despite 
the ominous predictions of faculty shortages heard ten 
or fifteen years ago. Says one foundation official: 

"The system is bigger, stronger, and more productive 
than it has ever been, than any system of higher educa- 
tion in the world." 

Why, then, the growing concern? 

Re-examine the progress of the past ten years, and 
this fact becomes apparent: The progress was great — 
but it did not deal with the basic flaws in higher educa- 
tion's financial situation. Rather, it made the whole en- 
terprise bigger, more sophisticated, and more expensive. 

Voluntary contributions grew — but the complexity and 
costliness of the nation's colleges and universities grew 

Endowment funds grew — but the need for the income 
from them grew faster. 

State appropriations grew — but the need grew faster. 

Faculty salaries were rising. New courses were needed, 
due to the unprecedented "knowledge explosion." More 
costly apparatus was required, as scientific progress grew 
more complex. Enrollments burgeoned — and students 
stayed on for more advanced (and more expensive) train- 
ing at higher levels. 

And, for most of the nation's 2,300 colleges and uni- 
versities, an old problem remained — and was intensified, 
as the costs of education rose: gifts, endowment, and 
government funds continued to go, disproportionately, 
to a relative handful of institutions. Some 36 per cent of 
all voluntary contributions, for example, went to just 55 
major universities. Some 90 per cent of all endowment 
funds were owned by fewer than 5 per cent of the insti- 
tutions. In 1966, the most recent year reported, some 70 
per cent of the federal government's funds for higher 
education went to 100 institutions. 

McGeorge Bundy, the president of the Ford Founda- 
tion, puts it this way: 

"Great gains have been made; the academic profession 
has reached a wholly new level of economic strength, 
and the instruments of excellence — the libraries and

laboratories — are stronger than ever. But the university 
that pauses to look back will quickly fall behind in the 
endless race to the future." 

Mr. Bundy says further: 

"The greatest general problem of higher education is 
money .... The multiplying needs of the nation's col- 
leges and universities force a recognition that each new 
attempt at a massive solution has left the trustees and 
presidents just where they started: in very great need." 

The financial problems of higher education 
are unlike those, say, of industry. Colleges and 
universities do not operate like General Mo- 
tors. On the contrary, they sell their two pri- 
mary services — teaching and research — at a loss. 

It is safe to say (although details may differ from 
institution to institution) that the American college or 
university student pays only a fraction of the cost of his 

This cost varies with the level of education and with 
the educational practices of the institution he attends. 
Undergraduate education, for instance, costs less than 
graduate education — which in turn may cost less than 
medical education. And the cost of educating a student 
in the sciences is greater than in the humanities. What- 
ever the variations, however, the student's tuition and 
fees pay only a portion of the bill. 

"As private enterprises," says one president, "we don't 
seem to be doing so well. We lose money every time we 
take in another student." 

Of course, neither he nor his colleagues on other 
campuses would have it otherwise. Nor, it seems clear, 
would most of the American people. 

But just as student instruction is provided at a sub- 
stantial reduction from the actual cost, so is the research 
that the nation's universities perform on a vast scale for 
the federal government. On this particular below-cost 
service, as contrasted with that involving the provision 
of education to their students, many colleges and univer- 
sities are considerably less than enthusiastic. 

In brief: The federal government rarely pays the full 
cost of the research it sponsors. Most of the money goes 
for direct costs (compensation for faculty time, equip- 
ment, computer use, etc.) Some of it goes for indirect 
costs (such "overhead" costs of the institution as payroll 
departments, libraries, etc.). Government policy stipu- 
lates that the institutions receiving federal research grants 

must share in the cost of the research by contributing, in 
some fashion, a percentage of the total amount of the 

University presidents have insisted for many years 
that the government should pay the full cost of the re- 
search it sponsors. Under the present system of cost- 
sharing, they point out, it actually costs their institutions 
money to conduct federally sponsored research. This has 
been one of the most controversial issues in the partner- 
ship between higher education and the federal govern- 
ment, and it continues to be so. 

In commercial terms, then, colleges and universities 
sell their products at a loss. If they are to avoid going 
bankrupt, they must make up — from other sources — the 
difference between the income they receive for their ser- 
vices and the money they spend to provide them. 

With costs spiraling upward, that task becomes ever 
more formidable. 

Here are some of the harsh facts: Operating ex- 
penditures for higher education more than 
tripled during the past decade — from about $4 
billion in 1956 to $12.7 billion last year. By 
1970, if government projections are correct, colleges and 
universities will be spending over $18 billion for their 
current operations, plus another $2 billion or $3 billion 
for capital expansion. 

Why such steep increases in expenditures? There are 
several reasons: 

► Student enrollment is now close to 7 million — 
twice what it was in 1960. 

► The rapid accumulation of new knowledge and a 
resulting trend toward specialization have led to a broad- 
ening of the curricula, a sharp increase in graduate study, 
a need for sophisticated new equipment, and increased 
library acquisitions. All are very costly. 

► An unprecedented growth in faculty salaries — long 
overdue — has raised instructional costs at most institu- 
tions. (Faculty salaries account for roughly half of the 
educational expenses of the average institution of higher 

► About 20 per cent of the financial "growth" during 
the past decade is accounted for by inflation. 

Not only has the over-all cost of higher education in- 
creased markedly, but the cost per student has risen 
steadily, despite increases in enrollment which might, in 
any other "industry," be expected to lower the unit cost. 

Colleges and universities apparently have not im- 
proved their productivity at the same pace as the econ- 
omy generally. A recent study of the financial trends in 
three private universities illustrates this. Between 1905 
and 1966, the educational cost per student at the three 
universities, viewed compositely, increased 20-fold, 
against an economy-wide increase of three- to four-fold. 
In each of the three periods of peace, direct costs per 
student increased about 8 per cent, against a 2 per cent 
annual increase in the economy-wide index.

Some observers conclude from this that higher educa- 
tion must be made more efficient — that ways must be 
found to educate more students with fewer faculty and 
staff members. Some institutions have moved in this 
direction by adopting a year-round calendar of opera- 
tions, permitting them to make maximum use of the 
faculty and physical plant. Instructional devices, pro- 
grammed learning, closed-circuit television, and other 
technological systems are being employed to increase 
productivity and to gain economies through larger 

The problem, however, is to increase efficiency with- 
out jeopardizing the special character of higher educa- 
tion. Scholars are quick to point out that management 
techniques and business practices cannot be applied 
easily to colleges and universities. They observe, for 
example, that on strict cost-accounting principles, a col- 
lege could not justify its library. A physics professor, 
complaining about large classes, remarks: "When you 
get a hundred kids in a classroom, that's not education; 
that's show business." 

The college and university presidents whom we sur- 
veyed in the preparation of this report generally believe 
their institutions are making every dollar work. There is 
room for improvement, they acknowledge. But few feel 
the financial problems of higher education can be signifi- 
cantly reduced through more efficient management. 

One thing seems fairly certain: The costs of 
i higher education will continue to rise. To 
F meet their projected expenses, colleges and 
universities will need to increase their annual 
operating income by more than $4 billion during the 
four-year period between 1966 and 1970. They must find 
another $8 billion or $10 billion for capital outlays. 
Consider what this might mean for a typical private 


university. A recent report presented this hypothetical 
case, based on actual projections of university expendi- 
tures and income: 

The institution's budget is now in balance. Its educa- 
tional and general expenditures total $24.5 million a 

Assume that the university's expenditures per student 
will continue to grow at the rate of the past ten years — 
7.5 per cent annually. Assume, too, that the university's 
enrollment will continue to grow at its rate of the past 
ten years — 3.4 per cent annually. Ten years hence, the 
institution's educational and general expenses would total 
$70.7 million. 

At best, continues the analysis, tuition payments in 
the next ten years will grow at a rate of 6 per cent a year; 
at worst, at a rate of 4 per cent — compared with 9 per 
cent over the past ten years. Endowment income will 
grow at a rate of 3.5 to 5 per cent, compared with 7.7 per 
cent over the past decade. Gifts and grants will grow at 
a rate of 4.5 to 6 per cent, compared with 6.5 per cent 
over the past decade. 

"If the income from private sources grew at the higher 
rates projected," says the analysis, "it would increase 
from $24.5 million to $50.9 million — leaving a deficit of 
$19.8 million, ten years hence. If its income from private 
sources grew at the lower rates projected, it would have 
increased to only $43 million — leaving a shortage of 
$27.8 million, ten years hence." 

In publicly supported colleges and universities, the 
outlook is no brighter, although the gloom is of a differ- 
ent variety. Says the report of a study by two professors 
at the University of Wisconsin: 

"Public institutions of higher education in the United 
States are now operating at a quality deficit of more than 
a billion dollars a year. In addition, despite heavy con- 
struction schedules, they have accumulated a major capi- 
tal lag." 

The deficit cited by the Wisconsin professors is a com- 
putation of the cost of bringing the public institutions' 
expenditures per student to a level comparable with that 
at the private institutions. With the enrollment growth 
expected by 1975, the professors calculate, the "quality 
deficit" in public higher education will reach $2.5 billion. 

The problem is caused, in large part, by the tremendous 
enrollment increases in public colleges and universities. 
The institutions' resources, says the Wisconsin study, 
"may not prove equal to the task." 

Moreover, there are indications that public institutions 
may be nearing the limit of expansion, unless they receive 
a massive infusion of new funds. One of every seven pub- 
lic universities rejected qualified applicants from their 
own states last fall; two of every seven rejected qualified 
applicants from other states. One of every ten raised ad- 
missions standards for in-state students; one in six raised 
standards for out-of-state students. 

Will the funds be found to meet the pro- 
jected cost increases of higher education? 
Colleges and universities have tradi- 
tionally received their operating income 
from three sources: from the students, in the form of tui- 
tion and fees; from the state, in the form of legislative 
appropriations; and from individuals, foundations, and 
corporations, in the form of gifts. (Money from the federal 
government for operating expenses is still more of a hope 
than a reality.) 

Can these traditional sources of funds continue to 
meet the need? The question is much on the minds of the 
nation's college and university presidents. 

► Tuition and fees: They have been rising — and are 
likely to rise more. A number of private "prestige" in- 
stitutions have passed the $2,000 mark. Public institutions 
are under mounting pressure to raise tuition and fees, 
and their student charges have been rising at a faster rate 
than those in private institutions. 

The problem of student charges is one of the most 
controversial issues in higher education today. Some feel 
that the student, as the direct beneficiary of an education, 
should pay most or all of its real costs. Others disagree 
emphatically: since society as a whole is the ultimate 
beneficiary, they argue, every student should have the 
right to an education, whether he can afford it or not. 

The leaders of publicly supported colleges and univer- 
sities are almost unanimous on this point: that higher 
tuitions and fees will erode the premise of equal oppor-

returns. — A college president

tunity on which public higher education is based. They 
would like to see the present trend reversed — toward free, 
or at least lower-cost, higher education. 

Leaders of private institutions find the rising tuitions 
equally disturbing. Heavily dependent upon the income 
they receive from students, many such institutions find 
that raising their tuition is inescapable, as costs rise. 
Scores of presidents surveyed for this report, however, 
said that mounting tuition costs are "pricing us out of 
the market." Said one: "As our tuition rises beyond the 
reach of a larger and larger segment of the college-age 
population, we find it more and more difficult to attract 
our quota of students. We are reaching a point of dimin- 
ishing returns." 

Parents and students also are worried. Said one father 
who has been financing a college education for three 
daughters: "It's like buying a second home." 

Stanford Professor Roger A. Freeman says it isn't 
really that bad. In his book, Crisis in College Finance?, 
he points out that when tuition increases have been ad- 
justed to the shrinking value of the dollar or are related 
to rising levels of income, the cost to the student actually 
declined between 1941 and 1961. But this is small consola- 
tion to a man with an annual salary of $15,000 and three 
daughters in college. 

Colleges and universities will be under increasing pres- 
sure to raise their rates still higher, but if they do, they 
will run the risk of pricing themselves beyond the means 
of more and more students. Indeed, the evidence is strong 
that resistance to high tuition is growing, even in rela- 
tively well-to-do families. The College Scholarship Ser- 
vice, an arm of the College Entrance Examination Board, 
reported recently that some middle- and upper-income 
parents have been "substituting relatively low-cost insti- 
tutions" because of the rising prices at some of the na- 
tion's colleges and universities. 

The presidents of such institutions have nightmares 
over such trends. One of them, the head of a private 
college in Minnesota, told us: 

"We are so dependent upon tuition for approximately 
50 per cent of our operating expenses that if 40 fewer 
students come in September than we expect, we could 
have a budgetary deficit this year of $50,000 or more." 

► State appropriations: The 50 states have appropri- 
ated nearly $4.4 billion for their colleges and universities 
this year — a figure that includes neither the $l-$2 billion 
spent by public institutions for capital expansion, nor 
the appropriations of local governments, which account 

for about 10 per cent of all public appropriations for the 
operating expenses of higher education. 

The record set by the states is remarkable — one that 
many observers would have declared impossible, as re- 
cently as eight years ago. In those eight years, the states 
have increased their appropriations for higher education 
by an incredible 214 per cent. 

Can the states sustain this growth in their support of 
higher education? Will they be willing to do so? 

The more pessimistic observers believe that the states 
can't and won't, without a drastic overhaul in the tax 
structures on which state financing is based. The most 
productive tax sources, such observers say, have been 
pre-empted by the federal government. They also believe 
that more and more state funds will be used, in the fu- 
ture, to meet increasing demands for other services. 

Optimists, on the other hand, are convinced the states 
are far from reaching the upper limits of their ability to 
raise revenue. Tax reforms, they say, will enable states 
to increase their annual budgets sufficiently to meet higher 
education's needs. 

The debate is theoretical. As a staff report to the Ad- 
visory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations con- 
cluded: "The appraisal of a state's fiscal capacity is a 
political decision [that] it alone can make. It is not a 
researchable problem." 

Ultimately, in short, the decision rests with the tax- 

► Voluntary private gifts: Gifts are vital to higher 

In private colleges and universities, they are part of the 
lifeblood. Such institutions commonly budget a deficit, 
and then pray that it will be met by private gifts. 

In public institutions, private gifts supplement state 
appropriations. They provide what is often called "a 
margin for excellence." Many public institutions use such 
funds to raise faculty salaries above the levels paid for by 
the state, and are thus able to compete for top scholars. 
A number of institutions depend upon private gifts for 
student facilities that the state does not provide. 

Will private giving grow fast enough to meet the grow- 
ing need? As with state appropriations, opinions vary. 

John J. Schwartz, executive director of the American 
Association of Fund-Raising Counsel, feels there is a 
great untapped reservoir. At present, for example, only 
one out of every four alumni and alumnae contributes to 
higher education. And, while American business corpora- 
tions gave an estimated $300 million to education 


in 1965-66, this was only about 0.37 per cent of their net 
income before taxes. On the average, companies contrib- 
ute only about 1.10 per cent of net income before taxes 
to all causes — well below the 5 per cent allowed by the 
Federal government. Certainly there is room for expan- 

(Colleges and universities are working overtime to tap 
this reservoir. Mr. Schwartz's association alone lists 117 
colleges and universities that are now campaigning to 
raise a combined total of $4 billion.) 

But others are not so certain that expansion in private 
giving will indeed take place. The 46th annual survey by 
the John Price Jones Company, a firm of fund-raising 
counselors, sampled 50 colleges and universities and found 
a decline in voluntary giving of 8.7 per cent in 12 months. 
The Council for Financial Aid to Education and the 
American Alumni Council calculate that voluntary sup- 
port for higher education in 1965-66 declined by some 
1.2 per cent in the same period. 

Refining these figures gives them more meaning. The 
major private universities, for example, received about 
36 per cent of the $1.2 billion given to higher education 
— a decrease from the previous year. Private liberal arts 
colleges also fell behind: coeducational colleges dropped 
10 per cent, men's colleges dropped 16.2 per cent, and 
women's colleges dropped 12.6 per cent. State institutions, 
on the other hand, increased their private support by 
23.8 per cent. 

The record of some cohesive groups of colleges and 
universities is also revealing. Voluntary support of eight 
Ivy League institutions declined 27.8 per cent, for a total 
loss of $61 million. The Seven College Conference, a 
group of women's colleges, reported a drop of 41 percent. 
The Associated Colleges of the Midwest dropped about

5.5 per cent. The Council of Southern Universities de- 
clined 6.2 per cent. Fifty-five major private universities 
received 7.7 per cent less from gifts. 

Four groups gained. The state universities and colleges 
received 20.5 per cent more in private gifts in 1965-66 
than in the previous year. Fourteen technological insti- 
tutions gained 10.8 per cent. Members of the Great Lakes 
College Association gained 5.6 per cent. And Western 
Conference universities, plus the University of Chicago, 
gained 34.5 per cent. (Within each such group, of course, 
individual colleges may have gained or lost differently 
from the group as a whole.) 

The biggest drop in voluntary contributions came in 
foundation grants. Although this may have been due, in 
part, to the fact that there had been some unusually large 
grants the previous year, it may also have been a fore- 
. taste of things to come. Many of those who observe 
■ foundations closely think such grants will be harder and 
harder for colleges and universities to come by, in years 
to come. 

Fearing that the traditional sources of revenue may 
not yield the necessary funds, college and uni- 
versity presidents are looking more and more to 
Washington for the solution to their financial 

The president of a large state university in the South, 
whose views are typical of many, told us: "Increased fed- 
eral support is essential to the fiscal stability of the col- 
leges and universities of the land. And such aid is a proper 
federal expenditure." 

Most of his colleagues agreed — some reluctantly. Said 
the president of a college in Iowa: "I don't like it . . . but 
it may be inevitable." Another remarked: "On the ques- 

tion of federal aid, everybody seems to be running to the 
same side of the boat." 

More federal aid is almost certain to come. The ques- 
tion is, When? And in what form? 

Realism compels this answer: In the near future, the 
federal government is unlikely to provide substantial 
support for the operating expenses of the country's col- 
leges and universities. 

The war in Vietnam is one reason. Painful effects of 
war-prompted economies have already been felt on the 
campuses. The effective federal funding of research per 
faculty member is declining. Construction grants are be- 
coming scarcer. Fellowship programs either have been 
reduced or have merely held the line. 

Indeed, the changes in the flow of federal money to the 
campuses may be the major event that has brought higher 
education's financial problems to their present head. 

Would things be different in a peacetime economy? 
Many college and university administrators think so. 
They already are planning for the day when the Vietnam 
war ends and when, the thinking goes, huge sums of fed- 
eral money will be available for higher education. It is no 
secret that some government officials are operating on 
the same assumption and are designing new programs of 
support for higher education, to be put into effect when 
the war ends. 

Others are not so certain the postwar money flow is 
that inevitable. One of the doubters is Clark Kerr, former 
president of the University of California and a man with 
considerable first-hand knowledge of the relationship be- 
tween higher education and the federal government. Mr. 
Kerr is inclined to believe that the colleges and universi- 
ties will have to fight for their place on a national priority 
list that will be crammed with a number of other pressing

way or another they will endure.

problems: air and water pollution, civil rights, and the 
plight of the nation's cities, to name but a few. 

One thing seems clear: The pattern of federal aid must 
change dramatically, if it is to help solve the financial 
problems of U.S. higher education. Directly or indirectly, 
more federal dollars must be .applied to meeting the in- 
creasing costs of operating the colleges and universities, 
even as the government continues its support of students, 
of building programs, and of research. 

IN searching for a way out of their financial difficul- 
ties, colleges and universities face the hazard that their 
individual interests may conflict. Some form of com- 
petition (since the institutions are many and the 
sources of dollars few) is inevitable and healthy. But one 
form of competition is potentially dangerous and de- 
structive and, in the view of impartial supporters of all 
institutions of higher education, must be avoided at all 

This is a conflict between private and public colleges 
and universities. 

In simpler times, there was little cause for friction. 
Public institutions received their funds from the states. 
Private institutions received their funds from private 

No longer. All along the line, and with increasing fre- 
quency, both types of institution are seeking both public 
and private support — often from the same sources:

only necessary but appropriate. A number of states have 
already enacted programs of aid to students attending 
private institutions. Some 40 per cent of the state ap- 
propriation for higher education in Pennsylvania now 
goes to private institutions. 

► The private philanthropists: More and more public 
institutions are seeking gifts from individuals, founda- 
tions, and corporations, to supplement the funds they 
receive from the state. As noted earlier in this report, 
their efforts are meeting with growing success. 

► The federal government: Both public and private 
colleges and universities receive funds from Washington. 
But the different types of institution sometimes disagree 
on the fundamentals of distributing it. 

Should the government help pay the operating costs of 
colleges and universities by making grants directly to the 
institutions — perhaps through a formula based on enroll- 

ments? The heads of many public institutions are inclined 
to think so. The heads of many low-enrollment, high- 
tuition private institutions, by contrast, tend to favor pro- 
grams that operate indirectly — perhaps by giving enough 
money to the students themselves, to enable them to pay 
for an education at whatever institutions they might 

Similarly, the strongest opposition to long-term, fed- 
erally underwritten student-loan plans — some envisioning 
a payback period extending over most of one's lifetime — 
comes from public institutions, while some private-college 
and university leaders find, in such plans, a hope that 
their institutions might be able to charge "full-cost" tui- 
tion rates without barring students whose families can't 
afford to pay. 

In such frictional situations, involving not only billions 
of dollars but also some very deep-seated convictions 
about the country's educational philosophy, the chances 
that destructive conflicts might develop are obviously 
great. If such conflicts were to grow, they could only sap 
the energies of all who engage in them. 

IF there is indeed a crisis building in American higher 
education, it is not solely a problem of meeting the 
minimum needs of our colleges and universities in 
the years ahead. Nor, for most, is it a question of 
survive or perish; "colleges and universities are tough," 
as one president put it; "they have survived countless 
cataclysms and crises, and one way or another they will 

The real crisis will be finding the means of providing 
the quality, the innovation, the pioneering that the nation 
needs, if its system of higher education is to meet the 
demands of the morrow. 

Not only must America's colleges and universities 
serve millions more students in the years ahead; they 
must also equip these young people to live in a world that 
is changing with incredible swiftness and complexity. At 
the same time, they must carry on the basic research on 
which the nation's scientific and technological advance- 
ment rests. And they must be ever-ready to help meet the 
immediate and long-range needsof society; ever-responsive 
to society's demands. 

At present, the questions outnumber the answers. 
► How can the United States make sure that its col- 
leges and universities not only will accomplish the mini- 
mum task but will, in the words of one corporate leader, 


othing is more important than the critical and 
knowledgeable interest of our alumni. It cannot 
possibly be measured in merely financial terms. 

— A university president 

provide "an educational system adequate to enable us to 
live in the complex environment of this century?" 

► Do we really want to preserve the diversity of an 
educational system that has brought the country a 
strength unknown in any other time or any other place? 
And, if so, can we? 

► How can we provide every youth with as much 
education as he is qualified for? 

► Can a balance be achieved in the sources of higher 
education's support, so that public and private institutions 
can flourish side by side? 

► How can federal money best be channeled into our 
colleges and universities without jeopardizing their inde- 
pendence and without discouraging support either from 
the state legislatures or from private philanthropy? 

The answers will come painfully; there is no panacea. 
Quick solutions, fashioned in an atmosphere of crisis, are 
likely to compound the problem. The right answers will 
emerge only from greater understanding on the part of 
the country's citizens, from honest and candid discussion 
of the problems, and from the cooperation and support of 
all elements of society. 

The president of a state university in the Southwest told 
us: "Among state universities, nothing is more important 

than the growing critical and knowledgeable interest of 
our alumni. That interest leads to general support. It 
cannot possibly be measured in merely financial terms." 

A private college president said: "The greatest single 
source of improvement can come from a realization on 
the part of a broad segment of our population that higher 
education must have support. Not only will people have 
to give more, but more will have to give." 

But do people understand? A special study by the 
Council for Financial Aid to Education found that: 

► 82 per cent of persons in managerial positions or 
the professions do not consider American business to be 
an important source of gift support for colleges and 

► 59 per cent of persons with incomes of $10,000 or 
over do not think higher education has financial problems. 

► 52 per cent of college graduates apparently are not 
aware that their alma mater has financial problems. 

To America's colleges and universities, these are the 
most discouraging revelations of all. Unless the American 
people — especially the college and university alumni — 
can come alive to the reality of higher education's im- 
pending crisis, then the problems of today will be the 
disasters of tomorrow. 

The report on this and the preceding 15 
pages is the product of a cooperative en- 
deavor in which scores of schools, colleges, 
and universities are taking part. It was pre- 
pared under the direction of the group listed 
below, who form editorial projects for 
education, a non-profit organization associ- 
ated with the American Alumni Council.

scope, not all statements necessarily reflect

The Rt. Rev. Charles C. J. Carpenter, 
former Chancellor of the University, 
has announced his plan to retire as 
bishop of Alabama. "It has now been 
my pleasant privilege to serve as your 
bishop for nearly thirty years, and I 
feel that the time has come for me to 
step down and turn this interesting 
work over to a younger man," Bishop 
Carpenter said. The Rt. Rev. George 
M. Murray, 48, former coadjutor who 
succeeds to the diocesan position, points 
to tremendous accomplishment, both 
spiritual and material, during Bishop 
Carpenter's tenure. Among them: bap- 
tized members increased from 16,217 to 
32,806, for a growth of 102 percent; 
diocesan receipts went from $39,826 to 
$556,284, for an increase of 1,297 per 
cent. This was in a period when the 
population of Alabama is estimated to 
have increased by only 17 per cent. 

Bishop Carpenter served in the dio- 
cese of Georgia for ten years before 
being named rector of the Church of 
the Advent, Birmingham, in 1936. He 
was consecrated bishop of Alabama 
June 24, 1938. 

Bishop Murray was ordained to the 
priesthood in 1948, and was chaplain to 
Episcopal students at the University of 
Alabama until he was consecrated suf- 
fragan bishop of Alabama in 1953. He 
became coadjutor in 1959 1 . 

The Rt. Rev. Girault M. Jones, bish- 
op of Louisiana and Chancellor of the 
University, hence chairman of the 
board of trustees, has initiated a series 
of newsletters to its members in an at- 
tempt to give more cohesion to that 
annually deliberating body. Among 
many cogent statements is a reminder 
that Church Support of Sewanee, on 
which the viability of the operating 
budget is to a considerable degree de- 
pendent, is a special charge of the trus- 
tees as individuals. He also points out 
the peculiar concern of colleges in the 
generation gap, since institutions are 
more conservative than persons. "Being 
a trustee of the University must mean 
more than building buildings or watch- 

ing the endowment grow," the Chan- 
cellor said. "Our task is bigger than 
that. As trustees, we are 'entrusted' 
with the present well-being and the 
future potential of a thousand young 
men. Somehow, for their sake as well 
as ours, we must understand them." 

The Chancellor has named commit- 
tees which parallel the regents' stand- 
ing committees. These committees and 
their chairmen are: on the College of 
Arts and Sciences, Bishop John M. Al- 
lin; on the School of Theology, Bishop 
Albert R. Stuart; on the Sewanee Mili- 
tary Academy, Bishop Robert R. Brown; 
on the hospital, Bishop Thomas A. Fra- 
ser; on spiritual and religious life, 
Bishop E. Hamilton West; on buildings 
and planning, Bishop Henry I. Louttit; 
on finance and endowment, Bishop Mil- 
ton J. Richardson; on Constitution and 
Ordinances, Bishop William L. Har- 

Herbert E. Smith, A'98, '03, H'56, of 
Birmingham has been publicly com- 
mended by his bishop for having at- 
tended thirty-nine consecutive meet- 
ings of Sewanee's board of trustees. 

The Rt. Rev. C. Gresham Marmion, 
H'54, bishop of Kentucky, was born in 
Houston, Texas, in 1905. He received 
his early education in the public schools 
in Houston and after graduation en- 
tered the field of banking for five years. 
He received the bachelor of business 
administration degree from the Univer- 
sity of Texas, and his bachelor of di- 
vinity degree from Virginia Theologi- 
cal Seminary. He holds an honorary 
doctorate from VTS as well as from 
Sewanee. He is married and has three 
daughters. For six years he was a mem- 
ber of the National Council of the 
Episcopal Church, representing the 
Province of the Southwest. His particu- 
lar services to the Church as a whole 
have been in the fields of Christian 
education and Christian social relations. 
Prior to his consecration as bishop of 
Kentucky in 1954 he served churches 
in Texas and in Washington, D. C. He 
is a member of the Committee of One 

Hundred for the Sewanee Military 
Academy Centennial campaign. His 
brother, William H. Marmion, is also a 
bishop, of Southwestern Virginia. 

The Rev. Thomas James Campbell 
Smyth, T'45, college chaplain for the 
diocese of North Carolina, was a trus- 
tee from that diocese in 1948-53 and 
again since 1965. He was born in Bel- 
fast, Ireland, attended the Onondaga 
Valley Academy in Syracuse. New 
York, graduating in 1938, Trinity (an- 
other of the Episcopal Colleges) in 
Hartford, Connecticut, and Elon Col- 
lege, from which he was graduated in 
1943. He was named Junior Chamber 
of Commerce Man of the Year in 1948, 
was a six -time delegate to the General 
Convention of the Episcopal Church. 
He married Julia Pepper of Danbury, 
North Carolina, and they have two 
sons. Mrs. Smyth is home-school co- 
ordinator for the Guilford County 

Newly elected trustees are Ledlie W. 
Conger, Jr., '49, Atlanta, replacing John

May 1968 



The basketball team, after suffering through its sec- 
Mid consecutive losing season — finishing the year at 
7-10 — is looking forward to next year when it will have 
ten of the twelve-man team back. 

Freshman guard Barney Hudson led Sewanee scorers 
during the season with a 19.9 average, with junior 
Frank Stainback just a step back at 14.5. 

The most satisfying victory of the season came after 
the team had returned from examinations, when they 
upset David Lipscomb 65-56. 

The Tigers fell twice in the CAC tournament, losing 
to Southwestern (for the third time of the season) 
69-64 and then dropping the consolation game to Wash- 
ington University 59-53. 

Sewanee swimmers finished the season with a 4-8 
dual meet record and second place in the CAC meet. 
High point of the season, according to Coach Ted Bi- 
tondo, came in the conference meet when the Tigers 
edged out Washington University for second place by 
taking the final event, the medley relay. Members of 
the relay team, which set a new school record, were 
Rick Dent, Doug Vanderbilt and John Colmore. Time 
was 3:59.0. 

Doug Baker was a double winner and high-point 
man for Sewanee in the meet. He won the 500- and 
1650-yard freestyle events, placed second in the 200- 
yard freestyle and swam on the freestyle relay teams. 

Dent and Vanderbilt also turned in stellar perform- 
ances, Dent lowering the school record in the 20-yard 
backstroke at 2:14.0. 

Jack Baker, wrestling at 130 pounds, won Sewanee's 
only championship in the Southeastern Intercollegiate 
Wrestling Association tournament held in Sewanee. 

The Tiger wrestlers finished their dual meet season 
at 4-4, then traveled to St. Louis to win the first Col- 
lege Athletic Conference wrestling tournament, taking 
six individual championships. 

Baker was the team's top wrestler, posting a 12-1 
record during the season and avenging the loss — to 
Jim Voss of Auburn — with a convincing 15-7 victory 
in the Southeastern tournament championship. Tee 
Parker, defending Southeastern champion at 115 
pounds, was beaten in the finals of this year's tourna- 
ment and finished second. He had won the CAC title 
a week earlier. CAC champions from Sewanee in ad- 
dition to Baker were heavyweight John Colby, also a 
runner-up in the Southeastern meet; Tee Parker, 115- 
pound division; Bubba Owens, 191-pound division; and 
David Elam, 152-pound division. 

Sewanee's tennis team, a week into April, held a 3-4 







mark and according to Coach Gordon Warden had 
more depth than in his two previous years. 

The team's leader in singles competition after seven 
matches was Phil Eschbach at 4-2, followed by Sandy 
Johnson at 3-1 and John Parsons and Tern Miller with 
4-3 marks. 

Coach Horace A-Ioore, whose track team opened with 
a 114-31 victory over Bryan College, can count on eight 
lettermen from last year's team and one from the '66 
squad to provide experience and depth. Back for an- 
other year are John Colmore, Ronnie Tomlin, Larry 
Dimmitt, Robin Harding, Chris Gardner, Dan Ahl- 
port and Jim Beene. 

With a fairly experienced infield and a talented-but- 
untried outfield coupled with a pitching staff of two 
veterans, the baseball team had an early 6-2 mark. 

Lettermen are Bill Cunningham, Chap Wasson, 
Tommy Tilley, Ernest Kirk, Kesley Colbert and John 
Stewart. Rick Van Orden is at first base and Don Ellis, 
a left-hander, is the newcomer to the pitching staff. 

Through March and early-April campaigning, the 
golf team's record stood at 5-2. One oddity: the seven 
members of the team represent seven states and seven 
fraternities. They are: Rusty Napier, DTD, Florida; 
John Grubb, BTP, New Jersey; Jack Steinmeyer, 
PGD, Oklahoma; Billy Tunnell, SN, Alabama; George 
Waterhouse, ATO, North Carolina; Allen Lang, KS, 
Texas; Don McCammon, SAE, Washington.

Dean George M. Alexander of the School of Theology leads an Alumni Council study group. 


Sewanee Club programs continue to attract record 
attendances over the nation. With the New York and 
Washington meetings still to be held, the total attend- 
ance for alumni-sponsored events stood at 2046. 

R. Andrew Duncan and Robert P. Hare IV com- 
bined forces to revive the Sewanee Club of the TAM- 
PA-BAY AREA and invited Dean John Webb down 
for an October 16 meeting which attracted some sixty- 
six alumni and friends. 

Farther north and one night later the Sewanee Club 
of JACKSONVILLE celebrated Founders' Day at a 
dinner at the Florida Yacht Club with Dr. Charles 
Harrison as guest speaker. There were sixty-six pres- 
ent for the dinner. 

The Sewanee Club of PENSACOLA, winner of the 
Dobbins Trophy for 1967, gathered ninety-five strong 
at St. Christopher's Church on October 23 to hear a re- 
port from the Mountain delivered by the Rev. William 
H. Ralston, associate editor of the Sezvanee Revietv. 

Dr. Robert S. Lancaster was guest speaker for the 
annual Founders' Day dinner of the Sewanee Club of 
CHARLESTON on December 7. 

Christmas receptions honoring prospective students 
in three cities on December 17-18 attracted some 385 
alumni, friends, high school students and their parents. 
The Sewanee Club of NASHVILLE's party, annually 
held at the Belle Meade Country Club, had 160 people. 

The home of Mr. and Mrs. Ledlie Conger, Sr., par- 
ents of the president of the Sewanee Club of AT- 
LANTA, was the site for the second consecutive year 
of the Atlanta Christmas reception. 

Dr. and Mrs. George C. Hart opened their home 
for the Sewanee Club of COLLuMBIA's Christmas re- 
ception on December 18 and eighty-five people — in- 
cluding alumni, friends, a sprinkling of current stu- 
dents and their parents and some high school pro- 
spective students — attended. 

Unexpected snow came to Birmingham in early Feb- 
ruary but despite the weather, which kept a good 
twenty-five alumni and friends from being present, the 
Sewanee Club of BIRMINGHAM'S annual dinner 
meeting was termed a success, with some sixty-four 
persons present to hear Dean John Webb. In charge 
of arrangements were Lee (Pete) McGriff, retiring 
president, and H. Kelley Seibels, secretary-treasurer.

G. Marion Sadler, SAE, has retired 
a? president of American Airlines after 
a twenty-seven year career which he 
began as a ramp agent. He worked his 
way up through sales positions and has 
constantly kept passengers first in his 
thinking. It was Sadler who made halt 
fares available to young people, and 
therefore stimulated a new generation 
to fly. He also is credited with con- 
ceiving airline credit and cut-rate fares 
for military personnel. One of his

Women Applicants Sought 


Graduate and undergraduate, theological and lay, collegiate 
and preparatory 

Gentlemen . . . 
The Vice- Chancellor 

The education of women at The University of 
the South has been a long-considered subject. 
As far as I have been able to discover, no Arti- 
cle of the Constitution, and no Ordinance, has ever 
forbidden it. At least two women, Miss Nannie Cot- 
ten and Miss Sonia Dabney Thurmond, enrolled in 
the Summer School of Music as long ago as 1S96; but 
they were not considered full matriculants or degree 

In 1909 Vice-Chancellor Wiggins tried with the aid 
of Miss Laura Drake Gill of New York City to es- 
tablish a women's college of The University of the 
South, but his death in the same year brought the 
negotiations to a temporary halt. Two years later 
Vice-Chancellor Hall revived the idea and secured the 
approval of the Trustees, a charter, and a set of plans. 
Miss Gill met with the Regents in 191 1 and agreed to 
help raise the necessary endowment. By 1913 a Board 
of Directors had been established and the Cap and 
Gown published a handsome aerial perspective of the 
new campus, which was to have been at Clara's Point 
where Harding Woodall and Cecil Woods later built 
their homes. In 1914 under Vice-Chancellor Knight's 
administration the prospect was finally abandoned be- 
cause insufficient funds had been raised. 

The first actual women matriculants enrolled in the 
Summer School of the College of Arts and Sciences in 
(continued on page 16) 

Trustees Vote To Admit Women 

Commend Students for Restraint in Protest 


The admission of women to the University, 
ordered by a resolution of the Board of Trustees, 
without audible dissent, to begin in the fall of 
1969, immediately raises a number of questions as well 
as emotions, and an irreversible change in the character 
of the University. 

That this change was inevitable, there are few to 
deny. It seems singularly appropriate that the trus- 
tees' action was taken on the heels of the 100th Com- 
mencement. Education all over the world has entered 
a new century, with no certainties established save 
that of transition, and Sewanee, for all its eternal 
never-never land appeal, is in it. 

The world-wide wave of student unrest was reflected 
at Sewanee this spring, in microcosm and with a sig- 
nificant difference. A routine notification that a young 
instructor would not be engaged after his trial period, 
touched off the voicing by a segment of the student 
body of the urge for involvement in administrative 

The administration never wavered in reiterating that 
it had no intention of delegating any of its responsi- 
bilities to a portion of the student body, and at the 
same time demonstrated complete willingness to listen 
to anything the students had to say and to give all due 
weight to their opinions. 

Sewanee was fortunate that the leadership of the 
movement, briefly threatened by the ugly shadow of 
nihilistic agitation from off the campus, remained in 
the hands of able and responsible men. Younger fac- 
ulty members, acting as individuals, are also to be 
credited in the outcome. 

Alumni, wondering how their very special alma 
mater is reacting to the strange university world of to- 
day, will be pleased to know that as the Vice-Chan- 
cellor moved to the podium in Convocation Hall when 
he and the provost and deans came by appointment 
to hear what the two hundred or so students present 
had to say, no one made the ritual introduction but 
all the "protesters" but three rose to honor the Vice- 

One of the requests made by the students was for 
the admission of women, a plan long since approved 
but delayed by the failure of the necessary gifts to 

Whether the trustees' decision was influenced by 
student opinion is not clear, but the board passed 
without dissent the following resolution: 

"Be it resolved that this Board of Trustees com- 
mends the students and faculty for their restraint and 
gentlemanly behavior in airing grievances concerning 
policy and administration of this University. 

"And be it further resolved that we commend the 
administration for their willingness to receive and con- 
sider such complaints and suggestions and urge that 
lines be maintained and strengthened for such proper 
and necessary communication. At the same time, we 
do affirm and support the policy of the administration 
in dealing firmly and promptly with any who partici- 
pate in acts which disturb the order and lawful au- 
thority of the University." 

The regents, charged with approving imple- 
mentation of the trustees' policy decision, met 
before the historic action was taken. The de- 
mise of St. Mary's School and subsequent planned 
absorption of local preparatory-school-age girls into 
the Sewanee Military Academy prompted them to re- 
vise the 1968-69 operating budget upward from 
$6,351,867 to $6,420,238. 

The burden of having to absorb an operating deficit 
of $40,000 at St. Mary's School, plus unusual expenses 
of a Centennial celebration at S.M.A., combined to 
make an operating deficit for the University loom for 
the first time in thirty years. Only gifts beyond normal 
expectations could avert it. 

What additional funds will be needed simply to ac- 
commodate women within the structure of the present 
college are now being worked out. 

To realize the Sewanee dream of maintaining its 
close relationships between students and a faculty who 
know and care about each of them, through two col- 
leges for men and a coordinate college for women, with 
University-wide lectures and major buildings, will re- 
quire perhaps twenty million dollars in additional 
capital funds. 

The Chancellor of the University, the Rt. Rev. Gi- 
rault M. Jones, Bishop of Louisiana, who is ex officio 
chairman of the Board of Trustees, expressed confi- 

"I think this enlargement of the University's ser- 
vice to the Church gives opportunity for tremendous 
advance for the University. It will mean additional 
capital funds but the challenge will be a new one and 
far more wide in its appeal. It can mean a new day 
for Sewanee."

The Rev. Leslie Badham with his Queen, Elizabeth II 
A fortress for learning 

lished after the Civil War swept away domestic hopes. 
The Rev. Leslie Badham, vicar of Windsor and 
chaplain to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth, and Mrs. 
Badham spent several days at Sewanee as part of a 
twenty-one-day peek at the United States. They had 
been guests of Mr. and Mrs. Francis Hickman of 
Memphis, summer neighbors in the English country- 
side. The Badhams were charmed by Sewanee. The 
vicar described us as "a fortress designed by nature 
for learning in this age of the battle for the mind and 

Sewanee will have its fifty-second alumnus bishop 
when the Rev. Hunley A. Elebash is consecrated as 
coadjutor of East Carolina this fall. A graduate of 
the College (B.S. 1944) and the School of Theology 
(B.D. 1950), he has served as a trustee. He also at- 
tended Georgia Tech and did graduate work in mathe- 
matics at the University of Wisconsin. He served in 
the United States Marine Corps from 1943 to 1946 
with the rank of first lieutenant. He was married to 
Maurine Ashton of New Smyrna Beach, Florida, in 
1946 and they have two sons. 

Elebash was appointed executive secretary of the 
diocese of East Carolina in 1965, after serving as rector 
of St. John's Church in Wilmington for eight years. 
He had been rector of St. Catherine's Church in Jack- 
sonville . 


Visitors from England in May put everyone here 
pleasantly in mind of the fact that this is the centen- 
nial year of the Lambeth Conference which endorsed 
the project of the LIniversity of the South and enabled 
Bishop Charles Todd Quintard to solicit in England 
the gifts which permitted the University to be estab- 


Commencement speakers — the Rt. Rev. John E. Hines, 
'30, presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, for the 
Sewanee Military Academy and the Rt. Rev. Thomas 
George Vernon Inman, Anglican Bishop of Natal in 
South Africa for the College and the School of The- 
ology — both dealt with knowledge in the context of 

"The part of wisdom," Bishop Hines told the cadets, 
"is to realize that this is the kind of world in which 
all we know is at the mercy of what we do not know. 
Our fate will be decided not by what we know but by 
whom we love." 

Bishop Inman maintained that in an age of fright- 
eningly swift technological advances and uncertain 
menace they still had perfect freedom to serve God, to 
bear witness with one's life even if the life be lived in 

He pointed out that knowledge is doubling every ten 
years and by the year 2000 may double every two 

"It will take twenty years to educate your sons and 
daughters," he said, "and Heaven help you, you will 
have to pay for it." 


The Sewanee News 

Thomas R. Ward of Meridian, Mississippi, has been 
named chairman for Church Support for the Univer- 
sity, succeeding George Snellings of Monroe, Louisi- 
ana, a regent. 

Ward is a partner in the Meridian law firm of Ward, 
Mestayer, and Knight. He is a trustee from his dio- 
cese and is the father of Thomas R. Ward, Jr., '6y, 
basketball star and Rhodes Scholar. 

The Wards are renovating a house at Sewanee as 
a second residence.

$500,000 GIFT FOR SMA 

Dr. McCrady has just announced that a gift of half 
a million dollars by Mr. and Mrs. David P. Hamilton, 
A'12, C'i6, of Shreveport, puts the S.M.A. Centennial 
Campaign on schedule in its goal of a million and a 
half dollars. The new academic building now under 
construction, architectural companion to the highly 
scuccessful Cravens Hall, will be named for the Hamil- 

■ Insurance policies brought $46,125 to the Univer- 
sity from the estate of Miss Elizabeth H. Knowles, 
who died in Rome, Georgia, May 29. The funds were 
designated as the William Addison Knowles Scholar- 
ship for students in the School of Theology. Another 
policy, the amount of which had not been ascertained, 
was expected. 

■ A bequest of $11,517 by John Adams Sallee was 
received last winter. It will establish a memorial schol- 
arship in his name for qualified senior students. James 
R. Helms, Jr., '49, California attorney, gave generously 
of his time and talents in securing this bequest for the 

■ From the estate of George G. Mitchell in memory 
of his brother, Charles S. Mitchell, has come $29,733. 
The brothers, heirs to the hundred-year-old Mitchell 
candy company, were uncles of George Mitchell 
McCloud, '41, a teacher at the Sewanee Military 

■ The gift of a cardiac console for emergency treat- 
ment of heart patients at Emerald-Hodgson Hospital 
has greatly strengthened the resources of the hospital, 
which has been refurbished from stem to stern and 

presents an appearance of gleaming efficiency without 
sacrificing its cozy and relaxing qualities. Three iso- 
lettes for premature babies, provided largely through 
the efforts of the women's auxiliary and its Hospitality 
Shop, put Sewanee's hospital on a par, even in quantity 
of back-up equipment, in this area with metropolitan 

The $3,700 for the cardiac unit was a gift from the 
Churchwomen of the diocese of Tennessee. Ernest 
Walker, the genial manager of the DuBose conference 
center and a trustee of the University, suggested this 
use of the money after his own recovery from a heart 
attack last fall. The gift was made, said Mrs. Joseph 
T. Howell, president of the women's organization, "in 
honor of Ernie and in appreciation of all he and his 
family mean to this diocese." 

■ The Bank of Sewanee has given $1,000 to estab- 
lish a scholarship for an outstanding entering fresh- 
man from Franklin, Grundy, or Marion County in 
Tennessee — Sewanee's neighbors. 

■ An inlaid marquetry representation of "The Last 
Supper," executed by Frank Lentz of Allentown, Penn- 
sylvania and valued by an insurance company at 
$5,000, is the gift of Harold Nogle of Port Arthur, 
Texas (see Sezuance News, November, 1966). 

■ Hint for company executives: Headache from 
present policy of corporate gifts at Christmas? Why 
not consider what one company did? They sent a card 
to each person on their usual list saying that they 
were making a gift to the University of the South in 
the amount that would otherwise go to material tokens. 
The gift conveying the message might appropriately 
be that used by the LIniversity itself last Christmas, 
with its transparency of a stained glass window in All 
Saints' Chapel, printed in France. These cards are 
available through the LIniversity public relations office. 

The Sewanee Military Academy's Centennial Cam- 
paign will be bolstered by the addition to the develop- 
ment office staff of Burton Blanton Hanbury, Jr., '68. 
Burt was a political science major from Farmville, Vir- 
ginia, and was commander of Sigma Nu. He is a grad- 
uate of Prince Edward Academy, where he was voted 
"most likely to succeed." Burt's title will be assistant 
to the director of development for S.M.A. 
Robert Pepin Jones, '67, will also join the develop- 
ment office staff half time as assistant director of in- 
formation services. He worked last year in the circu- 
lation department of the duPont Library. Bob, who 
is the recording engineer behind Series II of the Uni- 
versity's circulating radio programs and was under- 
graduate vice-president of the choir, handling its 
publicity, will be audo-visual technician and publicity 
assistant. The other half of him will manage Guerry 

September 1968 






The first Distinguished Teacher of the Year award of 
$1,000, announced in May, went to Dr. James T. Cross, 
professor of mathematics. The award is an experi- 
ment for three years, made possible by a gift of $500 
a year from an anonymous donor during this period 
and matched by the University. The selection was 
made by a committee to which the faculty elected 
three of its members and which included the provost, 
the dean of the college, and from the student body the 
head proctor and the president of the Order of Gowns- 
men. Other students were canvassed informally. 

"For distinguished teaching," Dean Lancaster noted, 
"for constant availability for counsel and advice, and 
for his deep dedication to the interests of students 
generally, the committee was pleased to select Dr. 


The honorary degree of Doctor of Science was 
awarded at Commencement to Dr. Gaston S. Bruton, 
retiring provost of the University (see Sewanee Nezvs, 
May, 1968). The citation reviewed his academic and 
administrative service to the University since he joined 
it in 1925, his long list of civic and professional con- 
tributions, and concluded: "This is such an impressive 
list of activities that it is hard to imagine how he has 
found time to cultivate an interest in languages and 
linguistics to the point of acquiring a competence per- 
haps as professional as that which he has in mathe- 
matics. But probably his greatest attribute in the 
minds of many is his profound integrity, and patient, 
thoughtful, concern, which makes his counsel sought 
by large numbers of people in all ranks of society." 

Allen Tate, cne of the literary giants of our 
age, w'll return to Sewanee as a lecturer in 
English. He will teach for one semester in 
the academic year 1968-69 and for one semester of 
1969-70. His appointment was made possible by a 
special anonymous gift to the University. 

Tate was editor of the Sezvanee Reviezv from 1944 
to 1946 and has continued to work closely with it as 
advisory editor. He was editor of the special memorial 
issue on T. S. Eliot which has since been published in 
book form in both the United States and England. 

He was born November 19, 1899, in Clarke County, 
Kentucky, the son of John Orley and Nellie Varnell 
Tate. He is B.A. magna cum laude from Vanderbilt 
University and holds honorary degrees from the Uni- 
versities of Louisville and Kentucky, Colgate Univer- 
sity and Carleton College, and from Oxford Lhiiversity. 

He held the Library of Congress chair of poetry in 
1943-44, an d is currently president of the National 
Institute for Arts and Letters. 

Among many awards he has won the Bollingen 
Prize for poetry, a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Bran- 
deis University Medal Award for Poetry, the Medag- 
lio D'Oro of the Dante Society in Florence, and a 
$5,000 award from the Academy of American Poets. 

Some of his more recent books are The House of 
Fiction (1950), The Man of Letters in the Modern 
World (1955), and Poems (i960). His one novel, 
The Fathers , is considered a high-water mark in Ameri- 
can fiction. 

Tate is married to the former Helen Heinz and they 
have a baby son. They have built a house on Running 
Knob Hollow Lake. 

Joseph David Cushman, Jr., '49, will return to his 
alma mater as associate professor of history. He has 
his M.A. and Ph.D. from Florida State University and 
has taught there since i960, moving to the rank of 
associate professor in 1967. He is the author of A 
Goodly Heritage: The Episcopal Church in Florida 
1821-1802 and editor of Through Some Eventful Years, 
by Susan Bradford Eppes. Both works were published 
by the University of Florida Press at Gainesville. 
Cushman is married to the former Mary Susan Liv- 
ingstone and they have two boys, twelve and six. 
Sherwood Forrest Ebey began his work as assistant 
professor of mathematics in the summer institute just

M.A. Florida State University, 1965. He is a candi- 
date for the Ph.D. at Duke University and expects to 
receive the degree next June. He has done parish 
work in the Episcopal diocese of South Florida and 
was Episcopal chaplain at Rollins College. He was a 
graduate teaching assistant in the department of class- 
ics at Florida State University at Tallahassee 1964-65, 
and as winner of the Duke University research travel 
award was Duke University Scholar at the Institute 
of Historical Research, University of London, England 
during the last year. 

Charles Samuel Peyser, Jr., will be an instructor in 
psychology, bringing the faculty strength of that her- 
culean baby department up to three faculty members. 
Peyser comes from an instructorship at Southern Illi- 
nois University, where he has just taken his Ph.D. 
His A.B. is from Hamilton College, 1963, and his M.A. 
from Southern Illinois. He also attended two summer 
sessions at Gettysburg College. He is the author of 
several articles in professional journals and has read 
three papers in his field. He was born in Fulton, New 
York, in 1942, and is not married. 
David W. Lumpkins of La Follette, Tennessee, will

His bachelor's degree is from the University of Ten- 
nessee, 1966. He was born in 1944 and has been mar- 
ried for four years to Earnest Louise James. 

Cap and Gown 


Dr. John Sedberry Marshall, professor of phi- 
losophy and chairman of that department since 
1950, has retired. 

While retirements do occur, and almost every year 
at that, the loss of Dr. Marshall and Dr. B niton (see 
May Sewanee News) at the same time does seem to 
leave an extra wide gap in the fabric of the University. 

Dr. Marshall came to Sewanee as professor of phi- 
losophy in 1946 after serving for seventeen years in 
that capacity at Albion College in Michigan. He had 
received his B.A. degree from Pomona College in 1921 
and his Ph.D. from Boston University in 1926. also 
studied at Harvard University, the lmiversity of Basel 
in Switzerland, Oxford Lmiversity, and the Russian 
Lmiversity of Prague. 

He is the author of several books defining the the- 
ology of the Episcopal Church. Among them are 
Honker's Polity in Modern English, Hooker's Theology 
of Common Prayer, and The Word Was Made Flesh, 
the last-named a theological document on William 
Porcher DuBose, Sewanee professor who was one of 
America's greatest Anglican theologians. 

Dr. ALarshall served for a number of years as editor 
of the Anglican Theological Review, scholarly religious 
quarterly with an international circulation. It is printed 
by the. lmiversity Press, Sewanee. 

He has been on the advisory committee of the 
Church Congress of the Episcopal Church, and presi- 
dent of the Southern Society for the Philosophy of 
Religion and of the Guild of Scholars of the Episcopal 
Church, an organization of college professors who are 
lay theologians. 

Mrs. Marshall is the former Mary Elizabeth South- 
ard. The couple will continue to make their home in 
the house they built at Sewanee.

The Woods science building in its spring stage of completion. Eye test: see the workman suspended on the 
crane? He was being taken to lunch. 

They Planned Well . 

The J. Albert Woods Science Laboratories, shaping 
up for student use during the coming semester, put 
Sewanee as far ahead in this critical area as the du- 
Pont Library" and Juhan Gymnasium in theirs. 

As the latter two buildings are ample as central re- 
sources for one or more colleges in addition to the 
present one, so, too, should the science building serve 
Sewanee's needs for a long time to come with many 
imaginative plus factors, even in this era of exploding 

Around a central decorative courtyard each disci- 
pline in science and mathematics now taught here and 
one (microbiology) not yet taught has large and small 
laboratories, classrooms, offices and all the aids and 
adjuncts that long and careful planning called for. All 
the involved faculties participated in the planning un- 
der the direction of Dr. H. Malcolm Owen, biology 

There are self-ventilating tile-lined animal rooms 
for biology, psychology, and inter-disciplinary work in 
radioactive isotopes. There is an amphitheater to seat 
three hundred people, furnished with sinks and an ad- 
joining preparation room so that demonstrations may 
simply be wheeled onstage. 

The auditorium has been named for Percy C. Black- 
man, '31, and the greenhouse for Waring Webb, former 
faculty member, in gratitude for gifts. Other gift 
designations are still available. 

There is a completely wired computer room, a lead- 
lined vault sunk in concrete for storage of radioactive 
materials, controlled climate growth chambers for ad- 
vanced work in plant biology, and such relatively small 
amenities as long slate boards set at an angle for op- 
timal viewing of oversize equations, heavy metal loops 

inset into the ceiling for hanging demonstrations in 
physics, and heated corridors with blackboards and 
bulletin boards interspersed throughout their enormous 

The building will be air-conditioned and is wired for 
closed-circuit TV, should that ever be needed. 

Special spray faucets for washing eyes and safety 
showers are provided wherever caustic materials will 
be handled. 

Another safety feature is a door designed to blow 
off in case of an explosion, leading from outside to the 
concrete-walled room where volatile chemicals will be 

The admission of women will not embarrass the 
planners of the new science building. Since women 
have participated for six years in the summer Institute 
of Science and Mathematics, sponsored by the Na- 
tional Science Foundation, the building has ample pro- 
vision for them. 

It is impossible to exaggerate the impression of 
space and amplitude of resources for learning and re- 
search afforded by the new structure, its interior as 
forward-looking as its exterior is reminiscent of tra- 
ditions from the very beginnings of universities. 

Dr. Charles Foreman, professor of biology, points 
out that tremendous leaps of the sort represented by 
the Woods Laboratories are not new to Sewanee nor 
indeed limited to recent years. Carnegie Science Hall, 
he recalls, was built in 1912 and must have been as 
commodious for that student body and that time as 
the new building is now. It is still a solid structure 
and will be put to good use, probably for administra- 
tive offices. 

"They planned well then and they have planned 
well now," Foreman savs.

The Past 




Rebel's Rest, former home of the Fairbanks family 
and the oldest complete building still standing at Se- 
wanee, has been renovated and is now in use as a most 
pleasant guest house and meeting place for the Uni- 

An anonymous gift of $22,450, in addition to gen- 
erous contributions reported earlier, put the under- 
taking in the realm of reality. Gifts of distinctive fur- 
nishings are still being received. 

Clearing and landscaping made a heroic stride when 
Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity made this their Help 
Week project, winning the Leon Cheek trophy for 
their efforts. 

The Rebel's Rest renewal has been the pet project 
of Dean Robert S. Lancaster. 

Sewanee history and the advance prints of the fu- 
ture were never more clearly juxtaposed than in the 
exciting presence at the Sewanee Summer Fine Arts 
Center of Robert Vogel, Hollywood producer whose 
special forte is far-out techniques of animation to ex- 
plain abstract concepts in science and engineering. 

Away back in the 1930s Dr. Robert L. Petry, pro- 
fessor emeritus of physics, was experimenting with 
animation in physics instruction. As a member of the 
American Physics Teachers' committee of visual aids 
he made loops of various diagrams which require mo- 
tion for their explanation and reviewed instructional 
films for the McGraw Hill Company and the Encyclo- 
pedia Britannica. One of his publications was "The 
Use of Animated Diagrams in the Teaching of Phys- 

Vogel, who worked for ten years with Walt Disney 
before becoming a multiple-award-winning independent 

producer of short films for government and industry, 
had a ready disciple for his philosophy and practice 
of communication through film in Professor A. Scott 
Bates, who plans to oversee student entrepreneurs in 
experimental movie-making. 

At the other end of the spectrum of practicality, in 
the here and now, was another student, the Univer- 
sity's director of information services, Edith Whitesell, 
who was absorbent of a wealth of know-how in making 
the next movie about Sewanee. 

The other departments of the fine arts center — sculp- 
ture, drawing and painting, commercial art layout, 
photography, print making, fabric design and weav- 
ing — flourished even beyond their previous excellence, 
and added a new dimension to a Sewanee that was 
once, unbelievably, without an art department. 

The Sewanee Summer Music Center, in its sixth 
year under the direction of Miss Martha McCrory, as- 
sistant professor of music, enrolled some hundred and 
twenty students and continued to enrapture its ad- 
dicts. In this group no less an authority than Profes- 
sor Charles T. Harrison has firmly ranged himself. 
"The young musicians played with eloquence and pre- 
cision," he said in one of his laudatory reviews in the 
Chattanooga Times, which praised students and fac- 
ulty in their demanding variety of public performances. 
The other summer centers — the college summer 
school, Sewanee Summer Institute of Science and 
Mathematics for secondary school teachers, the Grad- 
uate School of Theology, the S.M.A. school camp — 
reported success in their continuing steady endeavors, 
and contributed to the mind-expanding ferment of 
summer on the Mountain. 

September 1968 

One of the most fruitful 
associations in the history of letters 

Evocations of a stable society 

Rebel's Rest was a fitting background for the Sewanee Review seminar. 

Two seminars for alumni and interested members of 
the public during Commencement week end initiated 
the newly renovated Rebel's Rest on a lofty plane. 

The staff of the Sewanee Review, plus Allen Tate, 
former editor now returning to the faculty (see p. 6), 
and members of the political science department led 
the two occasions. 

Discussing the Vietnam war, the political science 
professors (Drs. Lancaster, Gilchrist, and Keele) ex- 
pounded the full gamut of positions except the ex- 
tremes, which were promptly occupied by an older 
alumnus and an undergraduate. 

The Sewanee Review seminar, publicly unheralded 
though it was, was a literary occasion of the very high- 
est importance. Andrew Lytle, editor of the oldest 
of the literary quarterlies, and Allen Tate were intro- 
duced by the Rev. William Ralston, associate editor 
of the Review. Ralston pointed out that Tate's re- 
turn to Sewanee allows the renewal on a daily basis 
of one of the most fruitful associations in the history 
of letters, begun in 1929 with Tate's poem to Lytle, 
"A Message from Abroad." 

Ralston referred to Allen Tate as "One of the dozen 

most distinguished poets in the English language in 
this century,'' and to Lytle as "the finest critic of fic- 
tion since Henry James.'" 

Both men are working on their literary memoirs, 
and each read an excerpt to the group of faculty, stu- 
dents, alumni and visitors. Tate chose an episode from 
his childhood when he was accepted into his family by 
an ancient blind former slave woman whom he de- 
scribed as holding the family authority. 

Andrew Lytle read from the section of his current 
work that has been published in the Sewanee Review. 
The excerpt he chose from the memoir, at present 
titled "A Wake for the Living," evoked from a child- 
hood breakfast at his grandmother's house a luminous 
window on a stable society. 

The question period drew from Allen Tate the pro- 
vocative statement, "There is no such thing as success 
in literature." His upcoming students will no doubt 
hear more about this. 

Queried about the characteristics of the Sewanee 
Reviezv which set it apart from other quarterlies, the 
editors agreed on, chiefly, its Christian posture and 
its wide open door to emerging creativity.

Sixteenth Lake Dedicated 

cent years on the Sewanee plateau none is 
more significant than the very basic element, 

Sixteen years ago, a time well within the memory of 
senior faculty members and administrators, residents 
and youngish alumni, recurrent water shortages threat- 
ened the very life of the community. 

Now, thanks to the vision and enterprise of Charles 
Edward Cheston, professor of forestry and engineer- 
ing, the support of the governing boards and adminis- 
tration, and a few key gifts, there are sixteen lakes. 

With the University's filtration plant, safe water 
has been assured for the foreseeable future. Oppor- 
tunities for swimming, fishing, boating and ideal pic- 
nicking, camping and bird watching have been woven 
into a summer life where once the nearest dip was 
fourteen miles away. 

Waterfront residences and dormitories have a serene 
focus for the eye, an accent for the woodland, and 
even a chance to sail and ice-skate. What this means 
for faculty recruitment and student enjoyment is im- 
possible to compute. 

The dedication of Lake Jackson during Commence- 
ment spotlighted the sixteenth lake, still in work, which 
will cover forty acres when completed. It will form 

a reserve for Lake O'Donnell, where the filtration 
plant is located, and an insured refuge from the grow- 
ing urbanization which, though it does not physically 
threaten Sewanee, still must be encompassed by our 
minds if we are to live in our world. 

Lake Jackson, named after Sheriff M. F. Tackson, 
1888-1962, was made possible in part by a gift of land 
from his wife and son, Dr. Harold Jackson, '42, of 
Greenville, South Carolina. 

The first lake at Sewanee was engineered by Charles 
Cheston in 1952. The dam cost $1,500, and was paid 
for by the sale of timber on the domain. Located on 
what was the University farm, it is still popular for 
fishing and picnicking and particularly for the water 
play of small children. Its name evolved from "the 
farm pond" to Farmer Pond, as a gesture of gratitude 
to Edward Disney Farmer of Fort Worth, Texas, 
whose gift of a quarter of a million dollars in the late 
1920s was the largest the LTniversity had received up 
to that time. 

Lake O'Donnell, near the airport, was made possi- 
ble by a gift from Peter O'Donnell, '47. The filtration 
plant was built there and Sewanee's critical water 
problem was solved. A life guard was stationed and 
formerly arid Sewanee became a mountain resort.

When Lake Cheston was completed beyond

"the Bishop's boys" (student work crews financed by 
the late Bishop Frank A. Juhan, 'n), and extensive, 
beautiful picnic facilities. This is where the Com- 
mencement barbecues, summer school and fall orien- 
tation picnics, etc., are held. 

A residential lake fills Running Knob Hollow. 
Among the noted home builders surrounding this 
are Professors Stratton Buck, Charles Harrison, and 
Allen Tate. 

Two more residential lakes, Lake Finney and Lake 
Gregg, are on the new college campus. They already 
serve Malon Courts dormitory, the Chi Psi fraternity 
house, and a number of fine University-built homes. 

Lake Bratton is at Proctor's Hall, opening up in- 
comparable home sites. 

Lake Torian keeps the golf course watered. The 
Sewanee Military Academy has its own lake. A re- 
mote lake has a cabin on it, the property of the fores- 
try department, and is available to campers. A num- 
ber of professors take their families there to "get away 
from it all" within five miles from home.

The many unnamed lakes dotting the domain serve 
to keep up the water table, even though not directly 

Those of you who remember a B. L. (before-the- 
lakes) Sewanee: go up in Col. Leslie McLaurin's plane 
some time and look down. The gentle contours hold- 
ing water spell a Sewanee that wanted to be, and 
complete it in another element as the chapel and 
carillon, duPont Library and Woods science hall do.

The Rev. W. Brown Patterson, '52, a member of the 
history department at Davidson College; Ashby Suth- 
erland, '42. vice-president and chief legal officer of the 
International Nickel Company and F. Clay Bailey, Jr., 
'50, a Nashville attorney, have been elected to the 
Board of Trustees of the University as representatives 
of the Associated Alumni. Their election at the an- 
nual meeting of the trustees climaxed the closest alum- 
ni election in history. With two lay seats and one 
clergy seat to be filled, and with almost a thousand 
ballots cast, Bailey and Stanyarne Burrows, Jr., '29, 
of Chattanooga, finished in a tie for the number two 
lay seat behind Sutherland, who captured the highest 
number of votes. The dissolution of the tie was de- 
cided by vote of the trustees in favor of Bailey — by a 
single vote! 

Alumni participation in commencement activities be- 
gan on Friday night with an alumni dinner honoring 
members of the classes of 1918, 1920-23, 1959-42, 1958- 
61 and Sewanee alumni who served in World War I. 
The dinner, held in Cravens Hall on the campus of 
Sewanee Military Academy, featured W. Thomas Rice, 
president of Seaboard Coast Line Railroad and a major 
general in the U. S. Army Reserves, as guest speaker. 
He was introduced by General L. Kemper Williams, 
'08, a former chairman of the Board of Regents. 

More than eighty alumni were present on Saturday 
morning for the annual meeting of the Associated 
Alumni, which followed the alumni corporate com- 
munion and memorial service. 

The Dobbins Trophy, awarded annually to the most 
active Sewanee club, was presented to Kirkman Fin-

South Carolina, by the Rev. Lavan Davis, president 
of the Pensacola Club, the 1966-67 winner. 

A strong, aggressive Associated Alumni was reported 
to those present for Saturday morning's annual meet- 
ing. The alumni heard Mr. Ransom praise the effec- 
tiveness of the association's admissions program, di-

The Sewanee News 


Sewanee's 1968 football success may well rest upon 
the team's ability to put the ball into play and in the 
air, says Coach Shirley Majors, beginning his twelfth 
season, seeking to improve his 60-24-5 record as coach 
of the Tigers. 

"'We will begin practice with a squad of about sixty 
men," he said. "Twenty-three will be lettermen and of 
that number fourteen will be either offensive or de- 
fensive starters from last year's 5-3 season. 

"We feel that our running backs are adequate, pos- 
sibly as good a group as we've ever had at one time, 
and we've got some good depth in our line, with the 
end position the deepest of all. But we have not yet 
found an adequate replacement at center nor have we 
fcund a passer we feel can handle the job under 
game conditions right now." 

Coach Majors said that finding personnel for these 
two positions had been the primary goals of spring 
practice and that while the fourteen days of on-the- 
field work had been satisfactory in other areas, the 
coaching staff still faced the task of developing a center 
and a passer. 

''We've simply got to be able to get the football in 
the air if we are to have an effective offense," Majors 
said. "Otherwise cur opponents will gear their defense 
to stop our running attack. We must have that pass- 
ing attack to keep them 'honest.' " 

Facing the same eight opponents against which the 
Tigers posted a 5-3 mark and registered their fourth 
College Athletic Conference football championship. 
Majors looks for considerable improvement from 
Washington and Lee, Fordham (which must be played 
before a large, partisan crowd in New York City this 
year), Hampden-Sydney and Washington University, 
which will present a new head coach and a new system 
for the Tigers to overcome in their final game of the 
season in St. Louis. 

One cf the major assets the Tigers will have is the 
close association the football coaching staff has had 
during the past. Line coach Horace Moore came to 
Sewanee in 1955, two years before Majors came as 
head coach; Clarence Carter, end and defensive back- 
field coach, came to Sewanee with Majors in 1957; and 
Dennis Meeks, who played high school football under 
Coach Moore, joined the staff last year as backfield 
coach and chief scout.

In Key with the Past, V.C. Says 

(continued from page 2) 
1920. During the ensuing ten years there were women 
in every summer session but one, though the number 
never exceeded six in any one summer, and the total 
for the decade was thirty-nine. 

The Second World War brought a new development. 
Not only were seventy-five women admitted in the 
decade 1942- 195 2, but five of these were admitted to 
the regular sessions of the College. The Summer 
French School, which operated only in 1937 and 1938, 
enrolled a total of one hundred and twelve students of 
whom fifty-three, or nearly half, were women. In 
recent years the School of Theology has admitted 
several women to the summer Graduate School of 
Theology, and two to the regular sessions. The In- 
stitute for Science and Mathematics has regularly en- 
rolled both women and men, and some of the women 
have earned Master's degrees. The Sewanee Military 
Academy has enrolled girls during the summer in the 
past, and has already accepted them for the regular 
session in September. There is thus no' part of the 
University which has not admitted women at one time 
or another, though the total number has never been 

I began a study of directions in which the Univer- 
sity might contemplate expansion during its second 
century. The possibilities of a law school, a medical 
school, a graduate school, a second undergraduate col- 
lege for men, and a corresponding college for women, 
were all considered, and estimates were made of the 
probable cost and feasibility of each. My general con- 
clusions were that a four-year medical school would 
not be possible here; but that a two-year medical 
school, a law school, an expanded graduate program, 
an additional men's college, and a women's college, 
were all possibilities that should be given serious study. 
I estimated the minimum cost of a women's college to 
be about $7,500,000, a new men's college about 
$6,500,000, a law school about $2,000,000, a two-year 
medical school about the same as the law school, and 
an extension of our graduate program into other fields 
than theology the least expensive of all, since it would, 
be flexible with respect to the number of departments 
involved and might be initiated at almost any level of 
expense we might choose. 

At the Trustees' Meeting in June, i960, Mr. O'Don- 
nell introduced a resolution asking for a committee to 
consider the establishment of a women's college and 
to report to the 1961 meeting. Bishop Hines moved an 

amendment to include study of the possibility of co- 
education. The amendment was tabled on motion of 
Mr. Grimball. Mr. Dearborn offered an amendment 
to include a study by the same committee of the es- 
tablishment of a second men's college. This amend- 
ment passed, and then Mr. O'Donnell's motion passed 
as amended. The Trustees thus went on record as op- 
posed to coeducation proper, but in favor of consider- 
ing either a second men's college, or a women's college, 
or both. When the Committee reported in 1961 it ex- 
pressed approval of planning for a women's college, 
an additional men's college, and an expanded Grad- 
uate School; but left priorities among them to be 
settled by availability of funds. 

Shortly thereafter the Board of Regents allocated 
the land from Green's View south to the Campbell and 
Pickering leases for a women's campus, and the land 
from the highway in front of Sewanee Inn south to 
Georgia Avenue for the new men's campus, and set 
about trying to raise money for both of these projects. 
Money turned out to be more readily available for 
the men's college than for the women's, so Malon 
Courts Hall, Lake Finney, Lake Gregg, the Chi Psi 
Lodge, and eight new faculty homes have been erected 
on the men's campus; and during the same period the 
enrollment of men has increased from the original limit 
of five hundred to eight hundred and thirty. 

In 1967 an effort was made to get the Trustees to 
authorize the acquisition of St. Mary's School property 
for a women's college, or to substitute a women's col- 
lege for the new men's college already in process of 
construction, or at least to start a women's college as 
scon as possible. In response the Trustees passed a 
resolution "that priority be given to the establishment 
of a second men's college, that a women's college not 
be substituted therefor, and that the Administration 
move ahead with the men's college as soon as funds 
become available." On the basis of this decision plans 
for a new dormitory have been authorized, and some 
pledges of gifts toward its financing have been ac- 

In June of this year, without recommendation from 
the Administration or the Regents, and in direct 
opposition to their own previous decisions, the Trustees 
suddenly decided that women must be admitted by 
1969. In a sense, of course, they were asking for 
something which had already been granted, and thus 
not at all out of keeping with past actions — women 
have already been admitted to every part of the

giate and preparatory. But that is not what they really 
meant. Though they did not say so explicitly, they 
really meant that women must he admitted in signifi- 
cant numbers to the residential undergraduate pro- 

Since all of the other arguments had been heard be- 
fore, it seems apparent that the argument which pre- 
vailed in this particular meeting was a plea of neces- 
sity. It was said that if women were not enrolled in 
significant numbers, the College of Arts and Sciences 
would not be able to enroll a student body of the 
quality it has had recently, or should have. This, in 
itself, I am convinced is unjustified. As I explained 
last year, we have known for eighteen years that the 
pool of applicants would be smaller in 1966, '67, and 
'68, than it was in 1963, '64, and '65, for the simple 
reason that more babies were born in 1945, '4^; and 
'47, than were born in 1948, '49, and '50. The same 
statistics which should have prepared us for this de- 
cline in applicants, provide equal assurance that the 
pool will start increasing again in 1969. But there is 
another and even more important point which seems 
to have been overlooked by the spokesmen of alarm. 
The fact is that, according to the report of the Di- 
rector of Admissions, in spite of the smaller number 
of applicants this year, "The academic quality of the

be able to 
rejoice . . . 

new class is better than (that of) the class that en- 
tered in 1968." We still had considerably more appli- 
cants than we could accommodate, and their quality, 
as far as it can be judged from preliminary statistics, 
is better than that of the previous year. The proper 
justification for trying to get more women is not that 
we are facing any sort of crisis, but that we ought to 
offer to the daughters of our constituency what we offer 
to the sons. 

Now, that obligation has been officially recognized 
for some time. We would have had a women's college 
in 1913 if people had been interested enough to pro- 
vide the necessary funds. This situation recurred in 
1 961. The only new element in the 1968 situation is 
that, without revoking either the plan for a new men's 
college or that for a women's college, the Trustees have 
decided we are not to- wait for the full realization of 
either of these before enrolling more women, but must 
begin in 1969. 

Accordingly, I have already instructed the Director 
of Admissions to advertise for and begin processing 
applications from prospective women students. I be- 
lieve I am justified in assuming that those who pre- 
scribed the timing are fully aware of their share of 
the responsibility for making it possible. If the Trustees 
who voted for the admission of significant numbers 
of women in 1969 will seriously set about helping to 
raise the money to provide accommodations for them, 
we shall be able to rejoice in a new era of real achieve-

ON THE COVER— The drawing "The Patriarch" is one of 
fifty original etchings by Nahum Tschacbasov presented by 
the artist to the University Art Gallery. Tschacbasov, born 
in Russia in 1899 and brought to this country at the age of 
eight, enjoys international esteem as an artist and teacher; 
and H. Stanford Barrett, Sewanee's artist-in-residence and 
gallery director, engaged in correspondence in an effort to 
secure some of his etchings for a special showing. The 
artist and wife, who handles his business, evidently were 
infected by the Barrett enthusiasm for art, Sewanee, and its 
gallery because they asked if the University would accept 
fifty original etchings as a gift for the permanent collection. 
The answer was a resounding affirmative. 

The University Art Gallery in Guerry Hall, under Bar- 
rett ministration, has more than doubled its holdings in the 
last four years, now numbering some 500 items being cata- 
loged by Mrs. Barrett. The catalog includes earlier gifts, 
such as the portraits of founders in Convocation Hall, and 
a number of more recent acquisitions placed around the 
campus for optimal exposure — the drawings of birds from 
Buist Hanahan, '61, as well as an Audubon print from Con- 
vocation Hall, for example, have been hung in Rebel's Rest. 

The impetus for the establishment of the gallery came 
when Mrs. Louise Claiborne-Armstrong of Apopka, Florida, 
gave the University her collection which included many 
pieces of furniture and art objects calling for museum-type 
display. These are grouped in periods and are a valuable 
resource in the teaching of art history, Barrett says. The 
gallery holdings also include a dozen fine examples of the 
School of Paris given by Mr. Samuel Silverman through 
the good offices of Victor Hammer of Hammer Galleries, 
New York.

Bruton Dies 


On September 18, after a year or more of un- 
flagging courage and gallantry that can hardly 
have been surpassed in the annals of the hu- 
man spirit, Dr. Gaston Swindell Bruton ended forty- 
three years of service to the University of the South 
with his death. 

We hope that distant friends who may not have 
known of his long bout with cancer will forgive us for 
supporting the myth he created that nothing was 
amiss. Everyone familiar with the unremitting rigor 
of his sense of duty will learn without surprise that 
despite repeated surgery he carried the mountainous 
load of the provost's office to the normal two weeks' 
vacation period before his retirement date, August 31. 

The only give-away in his manner has been an un- 
wonted gentleness. No one recalls having been chewed 
out recently. His gaiety and wit flashed as instan- 
taneously as ever, his step yielded nothing in its vigor. 

C">a.ston Bruton was born in Newton Grove, North 
JT Carolina, on November 22, 1902, the son of the 
Rev. Raleigh Alexander and Clyde Swindell Bruton. 
He joined the University of the South faculty in 1925 
as an assistant professor of mathematics, after having 
taught at the University of North Carolina and the 
Georgia School of Technology. 

In terms of time his forty-three years constituted 
one of the two or three longest tenures in the history 
of the University corporation. In terms of work out- 
put, of single-handed mastery of myriad detail, of a 
steadfast recognition of the important in constant con- 
flict with the urgent, no comparison is possible. 

Two years after joining the faculty, at the age of 
twenty-five, he was promoted to associate professor. 
He became full professor in 1942 and chairman of the 
mathematics department in 1945. 

He was appointed dean of administration and vice- 
president of the University in 1952 and held that po- 
sition until 196 1, when the office of provost was es- 

He was educated at Lumberton High School in 

North Carolina, Duke University and the University 
of North Carolina, from which he received the B.A. 
and M.A. degrees in 1923 and 1924. His Ph.D. was 
from the University of Wisconsin in 1932. 

The honorary degree of Doctor of Science was con- 
ferred on him by the University of the South at the 
last commencement. 

At Sewanee, in addition to his duties as administra- 
tor and mathematics professor, Dr. Bruton coached 
the tennis team from 1926 through 1965, excluding a 
four-year period from 1957 to i960. His record as 
coach was 218 victories, 113 defeats. His teams won 
the Tennessee Intercollegiate tennis championship 
more times than all other teams combined. 

He was elected to membership in the Helms Athletic 
Foundation's Tennis Hall of Fame in 1966. 

He was also very active in community affairs. 
He served as a member of the Franklin County 
Board of Education, including a three-year chairman- 
ship, was on the Franklin County Quarterly Court, 
and for six years was president of the Franklin County 

He twice directed the Sewanee Community Chest 
drive and put in a year as president of the Sewanee 
Civic Association. 

He has been chairman of the mathematics section 
of the Tennessee Academy of Science and wrote many 
articles in his professional field as well as on his 
hobbies — linguistics and contract bridge. 

He was married to the former Esther Newberry in 
1925. Airs. Bruton survives him. Their son, Major 
Gaston S. Bruton, Jr., A'43, C47, was killed in a 
parachute accident at West Point, where he was an 
instructor in mathematics, in 1961. Another son, their 
only other child, died in infancy. 

If one had to isolate a single salient characteristic of 
Dr. Button's it would have to be his integrity. He never 
tailored his convictions to circumstance nor his mode 
of expression to his audience. And everyone in the 
academic, business, and laboring communities he dealt 
with daily found him to be, comfortablv, his man.

Anonymously installed 









women as a beginning number for 1969, the regents 
decided in their first meeting since the trustees made 
the policy decision last June. The girls will be housed 
in the sandstone dormitory at Morgan's Steep which 
was originally planned for nurses at Emerald-Hodgson 
Hospital and is not now needed for that purpose. 
This handsome structure will accommodate twenty- 
four girls and a matron, and funds will be sought to 
build a wing for twenty-five more. An increase of fifty 
men students will also be permitted, bringing the pro- 
posed total enrollment in the College for next year to 

Dr. Joseph Martin Running, University organist and 
choirmaster and chairman of the department of music, 
is the latest faculty member to win his doctorate. He 
is a D. Mus. from Florida State University, Tallahas- 
see, 1968. This brings to fifty-four the number of fac- 
ulty members with doctor's degrees. Total faculty 
now numbers seventy-four in the College and ten in 
the School of Theology. With an enrollment of 802 
in the College and 60 in the seminary, the faculty- 
student ratio is back very close to one-to-ten. 

A STUDENT CENTER to cost a minimum of 
#750,000 has been selected by the Committee for a 
Memorial to Bishop Julian, as a tribute that the group 
of friends of the bishop, chaired by Dean Robert S. 
Lancaster, believed to be most in accord with the last 
intensely felt wishes of Sewanee's late great friend. 
The campaign to secure the necessary funds began 
immediately after the announcement October 18 and 
will continue until December 31, 1969, second anni- 
versary of Bishop Frank A. Tuhan's death. 

A student center is the last projected building to 
complete the present college campus, Dean Lancaster 
pointed out, and it is expected to serve additional 
colleges in the future. The admission of women will 
make the need for such a center for dates, meetings 
and games, acute. 

The committee which selected the memorial and is 
spearheading the campa:gn to raise funds for it in- 
cludes Bishop Cirault M. Jones of Louisiana, Chancel- 
lor of the University; G. Cecil Woods, '21, chairman 
of the board of regents; Dr. Edward McCrady, Vice- 
Chancellor; and Marcus L. Oliver, director of develop-

units of the University corporation was in the air when 
Church Support chairmen from twenty owning dioceses 
met at Rebel's Rest in September and heard state-of- 
the-institution messages from leaders of each of the 
divisions. An arresting suggestion was made by the 
Rev. James McDowell, headmaster of the Sewanee 
Military Academy, who said, "We ought to go right out 
on a limb and say that we stand for God and a good 
education." Vice-Chancellor Edward McCrady under- 
scored the opportunity for a private college to be inti- 
mate and personal where a tax-supported one, by the 
nature of its obligations, cannot. 

Dean Robert S. Lancaster and Dr. Charles T. Harri- 
son, chairman of the College's English department, 
dwelt on the spirit of free inquiry and the atmosphere 
for learning which a college needs and which, in their 
opinion, Sewanee does have. Dr. Harry Yeatman, 
professor of biology and one of the University's most 
widely published researchers, expressed his belief that 
research is not only possible in a small college but can 
actually flourish better where it is not required for

world, the School of Theology, is meeting its challenges 
with imagination and strength, as became abundantly 
clear in the presentation by its dean, the Very Rev. 
George M. Alexander. In the face of demands upon 
seminaries to be urban, ecumenical, and re-organized, 
St. Luke's does not concede the necessity of the first, 
is doing what it can toward the second, and has led its 
field in accomplishing the third.

An orientation program in laboratory format brought 
in five distinguished professional trainers to meet with 
the men and their wives for a week to help "create a

men worked on semantics, problems of communication,

standing. The middlers were directed toward bringing 
their summer's clinical experience into the context of 
their studies. The seniors went through a planning 
disc.pline, assuming professional responsibility for their 
last year of theological education. All the wives — ■

The President's Men, by Patrick Anderson. New 
York: Doubleday, 1968. $6.95 

It is a commonplace among students of American 
politics that the task of being President of the United 
States is too great for any one man to handle without 
considerable assistance. The Brownlow Committee Re- 
port of 1936 put it succinctly: "The President needs 
help/' and since that time staff assistance has been 
provided by statute. That these men wield consider- 
able power has been generally accepted, but very little 
research has been devoted to their activities. With the 
recent publication of his book, The President's Men, 
Patrick Anderson, '57, has gone a long way toward 
filling the gap in our knowledge. 

Mr. Anderson begins his work with the Roosevelt 
era, at a time when there was no legal provision for 
White House aides. Roosevelt's top advisors were 
therefore placed in a variety of unrelated offices. The 
author's description of the roles played by Louis Howe, 
Raymond Moley, Rexford Tugwell and others gives 
us many extremely informative insights into the work- 
ings of the early New Deal. The later Roosevelt era is 
largely built around a description of Harry Hopkins 
in action. The account of the Truman staff ("The 
Missouri Gang") is both comic and tragic. The period 
of Dwight D. Eisenhower's presidency is well handled, 
especially the description of Sherman Adams' tremen- 
dously important role. 

With the advent of the Kennedy administration, the 
book takes on new freshness and vividness. It is evi- 
dent that the author has a special "feel" for this more 
recent period of political history. He shows quite ef- 
fectively that the contemporary view of the Kennedy 
staffers as men who "dazzled the nation by intellectual 
brilliance and social swank" was pure mythology, and 
that a far better description would have been "cold, 
practical and at times ruthless." 

The book concludes with a section on the Johnson 
staff. The author's view of the current President's 
method of operating is indicated by the phrase used to 
characterize the Johnson group: Caligula's Court. To 
Sewanee alumni, however, this is the most interesting 
part of the work because it contains a description of 
the part played by Harry McPherson, '49, in the cur- 
rent administration. Although the sketch of McPher- 
son is brief, it clearly shows how he has been able to 
maintain his ideals, his balance and his personal in- 
tegrity, while at the same time apparently maintaining 
the respect of the President. 

The President's Men is a valuable and welcome ad- 
dition to current political literature. It must be classi- 
fied as required reading for all serious students of the

Power in the House, by Richard Boiling. Dut- 
ton, $6.95. 

The Hon. Richard Walker Bolling, who has been 
perennially mentioned as a likely speaker of the House 
of Representatives, has three degrees from the Uni- 
versity of the South: B.A. 1937, M.A. 1939, D.C.L. 
1963. He is the author of an earlier book on the 
chamber he knows so well, House Out of Order. 

Concerning his new book, just published in October, 
we thought we would let a stout political opponent 
speak. James J. Kilpatrick in his syndicated column 
(reprinted from the Nashville Banner by permission) 
says: "Boiling has just published a book that contains 
so much that is sound and instructive (along with 
much that is specious and inconsistent), that even con- 
servative back-benchers will want to applaud his 

"Boiling has served in the House for nearly twenty 
years, since January of 1949. Almost alone among his 
brothers, he has made himself a serious student of 
the chamber. A few of the old Southern bulls may be 
his masters in parliamentary procedure and precedent, 
but in terms of the long histcrical view, he ranks as full 
professor and dean of the school. 

"In his new book. Power in the House, Bolling is 
concerned chiefly with this historical view. As Bolling 
sees it — and it is hard to quarrel with his conclusion — 
the House functions efficiently only when a strong 
speaker is in the chair. A speaker can abuse his powers, 
as the irascible Joe Cannon abused his, but in Boiling's 
view it is better to risk such abuse than to permit the 
House to disintegrate into feeble fiefs controlled by 
untouchable barons.

Quantitative Chemistry: A Study of Chemical 
Measurement and Equilibrium, by William B. 
Guenther. Boston: Addison-Wesley. $9.75. 
This textbook by Dr. Guenther, associate professor 
of chemistry at the University, was published this 
summer by a major science-mathematics publisher, 
many of whose texts have been used here. The text 
grew out of curriculum development in chemistry at 
Sewanee during the last eight years. Students have 
participated in research programs which helped de- 
sign new research-oriented laboratory projects which 
are a major feature of the new text. 

The publisher's consulting editor, Dr. Bonner of New 
York State University, said in reviewing the book for 
publication approval, "The author has a sound point 
of view . . . his command of chemistry is excellent, he 
is well and properly concerned about pedagogic prob- 
lems, and he is putting together something that is 
both modern and up-to-date."

. . . Everyone was deploring the need to cut budgets 
and to devise means of meeting even the reduced bud- 
gets. It was all very depressing. Finally a big man who 

had not appeared before got up and said, 'For two days 
I've listened to all that's been said. All I've heard is 
that we don't have the money and therefore we can't. 
Not once in these two days has anyone even mentioned 
God or the Lord Jesus Christ. Why can't we say that 
we're involved in the Lord's business and therefore we 
must"! And if we must we can in His Name!' 

The "big man" was Henry D. Phillips, '04, in his first 
meeting with the assembled clergy who were soon after 
to participate in electing him their bishop. 

The story as told by George M. Alexander, '38, 
Dean of the School of Theology, is unmistakably of a 
Sewanee man. Factually, he held three of her degrees, 
he was an all-round big man on campus as an under- 
graduate, one of the University's all-time great foot- 
ball players (he was elected to the National Football 
Hall of Fame), and served his alma mater as line 
coach, chaplain, trustee, and lifelong friend in need. 

In the realm of the intangible, this account repeat- 
edly reveals personal qualities in its subject that recur 
so frequently in Sewanee men in high places as to defy 
the probability of accident. Unfailing courtesy, grace 
and charm, the absorption of stress without allowing 
others to feel it, a combination of dedication with 
worldly effectiveness (he was a superb fund raiser, re- 
peatedly refused offers of high positions in business) . . . 
the author himself, Dean Alexander, shares many of 
these qualities, as does the presiding bishop, John E. 
Hines, '30. The late Bishop Frank A. Julian, 'n, was 
coached by Phillips and in many startling ways dupli- 
cated his career. 

Phillips, while modest about his football celebrity, 
did not hesitate to use it to help establish communi- 
cation with the public he hoped to serve. He used all 
his talents effectively toward service, including 
"chicken-doctoring" (p. 23I) and amateur movie mak-

William H. Barnwell, '60, has written a book that 
has stirred many critics. 

"The 'Richard' of the title is a retarded Negro boy 
who would seem to offer little to an author, but Mr. 
Barnwell uses him to illustrate not only the restricted 
lives of the slum Negroes but of the progress of 
Charleston itself." — W. H. J. Thomas in the Charles- 
ton News and Courier. 

"What happened to William in 'Richard's world' 
comprises a poignant learning experience. William saw, 
smelled and tasted ghetto poverty. He looked hope- 
lessness straight in the eye. . . . The best of the book- 
is found in William's exceptional honesty concerning 
what he felt inside himself as he beheld the outlines 
of Richard's world."- — Malcolm Boyd, New York

December -1968 

Provost William Campbell and Arthur Ben Chitty, '35, 
in Founders' Day procession 

Arthur Ben Chitty, Jr., '35, historiographer of 
the University of the South and president of 
the Association of Episcopal Colleges, was 
Founders' Day speaker, 1968. Chitty, who for 
twenty years was Sewanee's voice to the pub- 
lic, serving as director of public relations, 
alumni director, and editor of the Sewanee 
News, had last given a classic rundown on 
the history of the University on Founders' 
Day fifteen years ago. This year he faced the 
turbulent years intervening since his last look 
at the University's history, and examined its 
role in the context of the Episcopal Church. 
The text of this address, as well as that of 
Edward Crosland, below, is available on re- 
quest from the office of public relations. Fol- 
lowing is his conclusion. 

Chitty - 

I'll take my stand on this. The University of the 
South has been for over a century an increasingly 
sound educational enterprise. It is better than many 
of its closest friends realize. It has been increasingly 
significant in its area until today it owns a national 
stature among undergraduate institutions. No informed 
person would attempt a list of a dozen of the best 
without considering it, and few would fail to include it. 

Less well understood, however, is a new dimension 
of service which Sewanee has rendered the Episcopal 
Church. By its example it has brought new hope, new 
confidence to church-related colleges, especially those 
in the Episcopal orbit, as to the viability of religious 
orientation and ethical posture in education. 

If in the evolving educational scene the continuing 
liaison between ethics and professional training, the 
liaison of faith with intellect, of conscience and brain, 
of religion with education is found useful and valid, 
then Sewanee not only has a place but Sewanee has a 
message important to its region, its nation, and its 




The dialogue between the generations has always 
had an elusive quality. But in recent years there 
have been occasions — more and more of them — ■ 
when the bonds of understanding between parents and 
children, teachers and students, the old and the young, 
have been stretched almost to the breaking point . . . 
when communication has tended to cease entirely. 

Everyone, of course, has his own pet theory as to 
why such failures, such lapses in understanding be- 
tween the generations, have taken place. 

I should like to offer my own. 

It seems to me that the problem stems not so much 
from the difference in our years as from a fundamen- 
tal difference in our times. The world has changed 
more in the past twenty years or so, since World War 
II, than in many previous centuries. We have wit- 
nessed, among other changes, a demise of colonial 
empires and an emergence of many new independent 
nations ... a great upsurge in the striving of minority 
groups for social and economic equality ... an epi- 
demic of international conflicts . . . the steadily in- 
creasing role of government in all of our lives. We have 
been privy also to the first glimpses of man's ultimate 
control over his environment . . . the unleashing of 
thermonuclear forces . . . the extension of the electron 
to virtually every human activity . . . the exploratory 
probings into the secrets of life . . . the reaching out to 
the moon and the planets. 

And the pace of change continues to accelerate. A 
recent article in the New Scientist stated that "of all 
the scientists who have ever lived, three-quarters are 
alive and practicing their professions today." Another 
writer has estimated that man's total body of knowl- 
edge doubled between 1775 and 1900. It doubled again 
between 1900 and 1950, again between 1950 and 1958, 
and it is now thought to be doubling every five years. 

Think of it! Is it any wonder that so many parents 
and teachers have difficulty in communicating with to- 
day's young people? What can we say to them? 

And yet, I like to believe that parents and teachers — 
and perhaps even speakers like me — still have some- 
thing of value to offer the young. 

Whatever the distance between us, there is a bridge

that can bring meaning and understanding to our dia- 
logue ... if we both will try for that ... if we both 
will understand that forces beyond our control have 
altered the traditional relationship between us. The 
bridge of which I speak is mutual respect, girded by a 
recognition of our dual obligations. It is the obligation 
of the older generation, I think, to acknowledge that 
the younger is today confronted with unique and chal- 
lenging tasks. It is the obligation of young people to 
acknowledge that their elders have provided them with 
a very proud heritage indeed, notwithstanding its frail- 

It is not possible any longer to describe precisely 
the parameters of what today's youth will have 
to undertake and undergo in the years ahead. But 
I think we can accurately describe the kind of men 
and women our new world demands — the kind of men 
and women that the University of the South, and other 
educational institutions, are being called upon to pro- 

First of all, this new ivorld obviously demands people 
who can thrive on change — and more and more change. 

There is little place in the world today — there will 
be even less place in the world of tomorrow — for 
people who react ot new situations defensively. 

Secondly, our nezv world demands people with a 
sense of the "wholeness" of things. 

Can we avoid an Orwellian future? I'd say yes. But 
to do so, we clearly must have a more informed citi- 
zenry, a more humane citizenry, a bilingual citizenry 
that understands the implications of the humanities 
and technology. 

Speaking at the dedication of the Blackman 
Auditorium of the new J. Albert Woods Sci- 
ence Laboratories on October 11, Edward 
Burton Crosland, '32, vice-president for fed- 
eral relations of the American Telephone and 
Telegraph Company, made a basic examina- 
tion of our time that we feel should be in the 
hands of every person who thinks and cares. 
We like to think that the broad vision ex- 
emplified by this alumnus well illustrates the 
kind of education he tells us our times de- 

Edward B. Crosland, '32, at Blackman 
Auditorium dedication 

What has produced today's ferment, its turmoil? 
Why do we have this peculiarly sudden intensification 
of efforts to build a better, more humane society? Is it 
because the problems are today more extensive than 
they were in the past? Hardly. 

It can be proven, statistically, that poverty has de- 
clined in America and is continuing to decline. 

It can be argued convincingly that racial and relig- 
ious discrimination have waned over the past few dec- 

And it can be shown that our slums and ghettos are 
gradually receding — one has only to visit Philadelphia 
or Pittsburgh or St. Louis or the lower east side of 
New York to see the evidence of this. 

At least part of the answer lies, I believe, in a very 
simple fact. It is that now, for the first time, we have 
the wherewithal — the tools, the resources, the capa- 
bility — to do the things we want to do. While we may 
differ over methodology and priorities, there is fairly 
general agreement today that poverty can be greatly 
alleviated, that the worst aspects of inter-racial and 
inter-religious strife can be mitigated, that urban de- 
terioration can be reversed, that crime and violence 
can be reduced, and reduced significantly. 

Fortunately, there are individuals in business, and 
in the professions, in this country who are not only 
undaunted by the forces of change, but who are help- 
ing to turn those forces to the service of mankind. 
Fortunately, there are educators who know that our 
schools must be relevant to the needs of a society that 
is radically different from any that has existed in the 
past. And very fortunately indeed, there are men like 
Percy Blackman who understand that our institutions 
of learning must be strongly supported in their efforts 
to provide young people with the depth of knowledge, 
and broadness of vision, our new world needs. 

And let me add this. So long as America possesses 
institutions like the University of the South — schools 
that understand that the truth of poetry and the 
truth of science are both true — then there is all the 
reason in the world to be hopeful about the nation's

Some Good Ball — 

4-4 Season 

Millsaps 16 — Sewanee 

Coach Shirley Majors' Tigers ran into a rough and 
ready band of Millsaps Majors, who had an opening 
game victory under their belts, and dropped a 16-0 
1968 season opener. 

Present as special guests of the University were 
members of Coach Majors' Sewanee football teams of 
1957-67, and as honored guests, members of the un- 
defeated teams of 1958 and 1963. 

The big downfall of the Tigers on the sunny Sep- 
tember afternoon was the Majors' alert pass defense, 
which stopped Sewanee offensive drives on four oc- 
casions with key interceptions. 

Millsaps scored in the second quarter on a 17-yard 
field goal and the two teams battled over that three- 
point margin until early in the fourth period when 
Millsaps scored two quick touchdowns to move out 
of reach. 

Bright spots for Sewanee were Nathaniel (Bubba) 
Owens, who gained 57 yards in sixteen carries, and 
John Popham, who stopped a Millsaps drive by knock- 
ing down a pass at the Tiger 20-yard line. 

Sewanee 21 — Hampden-Sydney 12 

The Tigers got into the victory column the next 
Saturday, spoiling homecoming festivities at Hamp- 
den-Sydney by claiming a 21-12 victory. Sewanee 
scored first on a 63-yard drive, with a 46-yard pass 
from Bill Blount to Tim Hubbard the key play. 

Hampden-Sydney scored early in the second quarter 
but missed the conversion attempt, and a little later, 
Sewanee's Tim Turpen picked up a fumble and ran 
65 yards for a touchdown. Sewanee was soon on the 
scoreboard again when Wiley Richardson blocked a 
Hampden-Sydney punt and recovered the ball at the 
eleven. Keith Bell scored. 

Sewanee 21 — Fordham 

Sewanee spoiled a second homecoming in as many 
games a week later, defeating Fordbam's Rams 21-0 
in New York City. 

The Tigers rolled up 47 r yards in combined offense, 
Turpen leading the ball carriers with 123 yards in ten 
carries. Bell had 117 yards in six carries. 

Sewanee scored in the opening period when Blount 
recovered a Fordham fumble on the initial kickoff at 
the 25. Fordham's defense held then, but was forced 
to give up field position and on Sewanee's next offen- 
sive series, Owens scored on a one-yard plunge. 

Touchdowns two and three came in the second quar-

ter with Owens going two yards to climax a 78-yard 
offensive drive and with Marshall Boon scoring on a 
23-yard end-around play. 

Austin College 14 — Sewanee 7 

The passing combination of Wesley Eben to Roland 
Rainey, which accounted for 242 yards, spelled a 14-7 
victory for Austin College's Kangaroos over Sewanee 
when the Tigers returned home for the first time since 
the opening Millsaps game. 

The victory left Austin unbeaten, but the gamely- 
fighting Tigers stopped the Kangaroos short of their 
five-touchdown-per-game average with tenacious de- 
fensive play. 

Sewanee scored first with a second quarter nine-yard 
run by Owens, a touchdown set up by Turpen's inter- 
ception of an Eben pass, which he returned to the Aus- 
tin 30-yard line. Sewanee scored seven plays later with 
Owens and Blount doing most of the work. 

Austin scored on the next series, marching 59 yards 
in eight plays to tie the score. Just four minutes later, 
as a result of a 68-yard Eben-to-Rainey pass, Austin 
had another touchdown to push the score to 14-7. 

Centre 24 — Sewanee 14 

The second-half defensive effort against the invad- 
ing Centre Colonels was as disheartening as the pre- 
vious week's had been encouraging. 

Leading 14-0 in the second quarter and 14-7 at half- 
time, the Tigers played lackluster defense in the sec- 
ond half and saw the score tied in the third quarter 
with Centre going ahead to win with a 10-point fourth- 
period effort. 

Owens scored the Tigers' first touchdown from the 
one-yard line and Turpen added the second on a 34- 
yard dash. Turner added his eighth and ninth consecu- 
tive extra points of the season. 

But the combination of a stalled offense which 
needed an air attack, defensive mistakes and a fumbled

punt, which gave Centre, leading 17-14, the ball in 
Sewanee territory and the opportunity to score the 
decisive touchdown, was too much for the Tigers to 

Sewanee 28 — Southwestern 14 

The Tigers finally gave the hometown folks a look 
at winning football as they ran over the Southwestern 
Lynx 28-14 in the annual homecoming game. 

As the week before, Sewanee struck early in the 
game, capitalizing on a Southwestern fumble and send- 
ing Bill Blount over for the score just eight plays later. 

With twenty-one seconds left in the first period Se- 
wanee had another touchdown, this one masterminded 
by senior Jim Beene, who directed a thirty-four yard 
drive in eight plays and scored himself from the one- 
yard line. Blount got the third score five mmutes deep 
into the second period, going into the end zone on a 
fourth-and-three situation. 

The Lynx scored just before halftime, and each 
team added a touchdown in- the second half — Sewa- 
nee's coming on Beene's seventy-one-yard dash 
through a gaping hole at left tackle. 

Defense played a key role in the victory. Sewanee 
held the Lynx to ninety-one yards on the ground, re- 
covered three fumbles and intercepted two passes. 

Washington and Lee 16 — Sewanee 7 

Washington and Lee took an early 2-0 lead with a 
safety on the opening kickoff and added two scoring 
drives, the result of a devastating passing attack, to 
record a 16-7 victory over the Tigers in Lexington. 

Soccer and cross country, one a brand new varsity 
sport and the other a revived one, had rough sledding 
during the fall campaign. The soccer team finished at 
3-8-1 for the 1 season, taking third place in the Cove- 
nant College invitational tournament. High scorers on 
the team were David Eaton and Bruce Bass with four 
goals each, while goal keeper George Westerfield was 
credited with key saves in a 2-0 victory over Vander- 
bilt. The cross country team was led by Ronnie Tom- 
lin, who took a third place finish in the annual con- 
ference meet, held at Sewanee. 

Winter coaches are looking forward to good seasons. 
Coach Ted Bitondo's swimmers have eleven returning 
veterans and five newcomers, but may be* hurt by a 
lack of depth as they move' towards the CAC swim 
meet to be held in Sewanee; Coach Lon Varnell has 
a stable of returnees back for another year of action 
in addition to two transfers ready to open against the 
University of Georgia; Coach Horace Moore is look- 
ing for experience and depth to boost his wrestlers 
far above the .500 mark this season. 

Behind a scant few seconds into the game, the Ti- 
mers rallied to march eighty yards in fourteen plays 
with Blount connecting on an eleven-yard pass to Bell 
tor a touchdown just before the end of the first period. 
Turner converted and Sewanee led 7-2. 

Washington and Lee then put two quick touchdowns 
on the scoreboard on drives of sixty-seven and fifty- 
six yards, both engineered by quarterback Chuck 
Kuhn. He completed five of six passes in the first 
drive and climaxed it with a thirteen-yarder to Bucky 
Cunningham for the touchdown. The second touch- 
down came on a ten-vard pass, again to Cunningham. 

Trailing 16-7 in the second half, Sewanee mounted 
two offensives but each time they were stopped short 
on crucial fourth-down situations inside the Generals' 
twenty-yard line. Likewise, potential scoring drives 
were interrupted in the fourth quarter on interceptions. 

Sewanee 35 — Washington 28 

In his final game for Sewanee, Jim Beene rushed 
for 146 yards and scored one touchdown to give the 
Tigers a 4-4 break-even season with a 35-28 victory 
over Washington Lhiiversity in St. Louis. 

The Tigers scored first in the game on a forty-seven- 
yard Hubbard-to-Boon pass, but fell behind 17-15 at 
halftime after giving up two touchdowns and a field 
goal in the second quarter. Owens had gotten the Ti- 
gers' second touchdown in the second quarter on a 
two-yard plunge and Blount had added a two-point 

Sewanee bunched three touchdowns in the third 
quarter to spurt to a 55-20 lead. Getting those touch- 
downs were Bill Blount, on an eight-yard run, Robert 
Akin on a fifteen-yard pass from Tim Turpen, and 
Beene on a sixty-yard run. 

One record on the season was the extra-point per- 
formance by freshman Mike Turner. Lie booted sev- 
enteen of seventeen attempts — a perfect record !

Alumni Affairs 

an address by Edward Crosland, C'32, was the 
highlight of one of the best attended and most success- 
ful meetings of the Alumni Council ever held in Se- 

Present as special guests of the council were Percy 
Clarke Blackman, C'31, donor of the auditorium in 
the new science building, Mrs. Blackman and their 
son, Clarke, a student in the College. 

The forty-seven alumni attending Saturday morn- 
ing's business meeting heard a report on Sewanee's 
plans for the admission of women students, prepared 
by alumni president Robert M. Ayres, Jr., Dr. Edward 
McCrady, director of admissions John Ransom and 
University provost Dr. William B. Campbell. Members 
of the council had the opportunity to question the 
speakers and other members of the administration, who 
were seated in the audience, at the conclusion of the 
prepared remarks. 

In other action the council heard and discussed re- 
ports from: 

9 Louis Rice, vice-president for admissions, who 
stated that fifty-two alumni admissions counselors had 
accepted responsibility for assisting the admissions ef- 
fort in fifty-eight cities across the nation. He also said 
that at the request of the admissions office, alumni 
had made 120 visits during the spring to young men 
who had been accepted for admission to the Univer- 
sity, in order to encourage them to enroll at Sewanee. 

H Caldwell Marks, vice-president for regions, who 
noted the reactivation of two clubs, Jackson, Missis- 
sippi, and Little Rock, Arkansas, and the impending 
organization of a new club in Montgomery. 

9 Morse Kochtitzky, who described the new alumni 
effort to supplement the program of the trustees' com- 
mittee for Church Support. 

B James W. Gentry, Jr., who outlined plans for 
the 1968 alumni-giving solicitation. He reminded the 
council of its goal of at least 2,000 alumni contributors, 
which would set a new record for number of alumni 

■ Albert Gooch, executive director, who commented 
briefly on the general alumni program and then dis- 
cussed in detail the Alumni Servicemen Newsletter 
(see accompanying article) and the Business Career 
Fellows program, which offers students the opportunity 
to spend a summer in the executive offices of major 
corporations. He continued the discussion of plans for 
the alumni-giving program begun by Mr. Gentry. 

>nr^ hree days after the Alumni Council meeting, fifty 
V. members of the St. Luke's Alumni Association 
came to Sewanee to celebrate St. Luke's Day and to 
participate in the annual business meeting of the as- 

President Martin Tilson and members of the St. 
Luke's faculty discussed the four-point program the 
association had followed during Tilson's presidency, 
which began in June, 1967, and will continue through

Let Us Give Him the Student Center He Wanted 


When this photograph by Franke Keat- 
ing appeared on the cover of the August, 
1965, Seiuanee News, announcing the 
triumphant conclusion of the Ford Foun- 
dation challenge grant campaign under 
Bishop Juhan's captaincy as director of 
development, a friend of the Bishop's 
drew a crown cocked over his brow and 
wrote, "Hail the King!" 

"Some king!" the Bishop snorted. 
"King of beggars." The name caught on. 
He was, indeed, the king of beggars for 
Sewanee. Translated into Latin, that was what was engraved on the gold medallion presented tc 
him on his retirement from the development office. He never really retired. He moved over tc 
Juhan Gymnasium as athletics consultant, and continued to beg gifts for Sewanee until the day 
he died. 

No student who ever came to him for athletic or spiritual counsel, a loan or a gift (it was always 
that — he never accepted repayment, merely requesting each recipient to pass the favor on to an- 
other student some day), an anecdote or a wise crack, ever came away empty-handed. His lasl 
unfulfilled wish for Sewanee was a center where his students might come for recreation and re- 
freshment. Since we are asking in his name, we cannot let them go empty-handed.
