Inching Upward Again 

1968 GIFT TOTAL $1,468,261 

by Marcus L. Oliver, Director of Development 



A slow starting 1968 ended in a crescen- 
doing December with exciting implications 
for 1969. More than 1,800 gifts in December taxed 
our gift-processing capacity, putting us in the para- 
doxical position of being embarrassed for the right 

The gift total for 1968 exceeded that of 1967 by 
over $14,000. This is the first reversal of the down- 
ward trend of each successive year since the peak of 
the Ford Matching Campaign in 1965. 

The total value of all gifts to the several divisions 
of the University Corporation for 1968 is $1,468,261.16. 

There are a number of things to shout about: 

More alumni 

lade gifts in 1968 than ever 

• There was a 79 per cent increase over last 
year in unrestricted dollars, by all odds the 
most needed kind. 

• Gifts for scholarships — for which we are al- 
most always in desperate need — more than 
tripled in 1968. 

• Identifiable gifts from trustees and regents 
increased by 93 per cent. 

© Church support — that sustaining flow of funds 
from dioceses, parishes, and individual church 
members — increased eight per cent for a total 
of over $212,000. 

• For the third consecutive year, the number 
of members of the Century Club has in- 
creased. In 1968 615 members gave over 

• The Vice-Chancellor's and Trustees' Society, 
those persons who give or are responsible for 
raising at least $1,000 per year, is responsi- 
ble for over $553,500 from 127 members. This 
is an increase of more than $120,000 from 
eleven less members. 

• The most encouraging single aspect of the en- 
tire year was the number of volunteers, both 
alumni and friends, who cared enough about 
Sewanee to ask for and get gifts for her. This 
in the final analvsis is the test of a great in- 

stitution. For no paid staff can even approach 
the effectiveness of an interested army of 
partisans doing battle for a cause they believe 

Kudos to those many individual alumni, parents, 
and friends who not. only gave of their own financial 
resources but enthusiastically sought the support of 
others. Deep and abiding gratitude to all who con- 
tributed to the ongoing life and purpose of Sewanee. 

The success experience in 1968 can be attributed 
to the efforts of many people. Some members of the 
boards of trustees and regents worked personally and 
effectively. Alumni leaders mounted programs of sup- 
port on class, club, and regional levels. Parents en- 
listed the participation of other parents. A revitalized 
effort to inform and involve individuals, rectors, and 
vestries demonstrated the great and relatively un- 
tapped potential which the Church offers. 

Nowhere was the volunteer effort more dramati- 
cally demonstrated than in the letter Associated Alum- 
ni president Robert M. Ayres, Jr., sent, late in De- 
cember, to college alumni whose 1968 gift had not 
been received. The plainly worded letter made a strong 
case for alumni making an annual gift to Sewanee. It 
was a hard message to ignore because it was actually 
wrapped around a real dollar bill ! 

Anticipating a certain amount of reaction to so rash 
an appeal, Mr. Ayres explained in the letter: "Before

matics types, 1968. The Institute is sponsored by the National Sci- 
ence Foundation and is swing'ng in:o its ninth year. 


The fifty-third alumnus Bishop in Sewanee history 
was consecrated January 10, when the Ven. George 
Edward Haynsworth, T49, GST'52, became Bishop of 
Nicaragua. He had been archdeacon of Managua in 
that diocese. Before going into the mission field in 
San Salvador in Central America he had served 
churches in South Carolina and Georgia. 

Bishop Haynsworth's B.A. degree is from the Cita- 
del. During World War II he was a first lieutenant 
in the combat infantry and won the Purple Heart. 
He is the brother of the Rev. W. R. Haynsworth, T'38, 
of Adams Run, South Carolina. 

The Rt. Rev. Harold C. Gosnell, who was awarded 
an honorary doctorate by the University in 1956 and is 
a former regent and long-time good friend, was conse- 
crated as bishop coadjutor of West Texas on Sep- 
tember 11. He became the diocesan on the retirement 
of Bishop Everett Jones January 1.

Jr., 71, in a four-way swap for boys on the Mountain. 


thriving in its first year of organization and leadership 
by forty students of the college, headed by Brad 
Whitney, a junior from Batesburg, South Carolina. 
The ingenuity, drive and devotion — and success — ex- 
hibited by the students have evoked the respect of 
everyone. Bowling, basketball and swimming and 
individual tutoring for community boys who needed 
it were flourishing even before the students wangled a 

The clubhouse is a study in cooperation and recipro- 
cation that ought to make the United Nations feel 
ashamed of themselves. The students got the Uni- 
versity administration to give them old Palmetto, 
doomed to razing, plus $6,000 toward moving it to a 
site near the L and N depot. Professors Baird and 
Cross volunteered their time and carpentry skills 
toward the remodeling. Men from the Office of Eco- 
nomic Opportunity's work-study program work on the 
buildings mornings, and afternoons they have classes in 
it, with student sponsors of the Boy's Club volunteer- 
ing their time to give the men individual instruction. 
A visitor from a government office speculated that 
these must be students of social work on an assign- 
ment, and seemed a bit bewildered when it was ex- 
plained to him that no, these were mostly English and 
history majors who just wanted to help. 

The Sewanee News 


the National College Athletic Association has been 
won by James R. Beene, '69, of South Pittsburg, 
Tennessee. He was one of thirty-three outstanding 
football players with high academic and character 
qualifications to be so chosen from the entire United 

He is the fourth Sewanee man to win this award 
since the program's inception five years ago, a record 
thought to be unmatched in the college division and 
exceeded in the university division only by Caltech 
and Yale. Previous Sewanee winners were Frank 
Stubblefield, '65, and Rhodes Scholars Doug Paschall, 
'66, and Tom Ward, '67. 


IN THE YEAR AND A HALF since Marleen Bengel 
Allen took over the office of financial aid and placement 
she has become recognized as one of the outstanding 
specialists in her field. In recent months she has been 
invited to speak or confer in four high-level gatherings, 
in one of which she was the only woman among eleven 
men from six states. Mrs. Allen, who has a master's 
degree from Syracuse Umiversity in student personnel 
administration in higher education, was the wife of the 
late Dr. William T. Allen, head of the University's 
physics department before his death in 1965. 

All types of financial aid in the college — scholarships, 
loans and jobs — are handled by Mrs. Allen, and she 
tries in every way possible to see that no otherwise 
qualified student be deprived of a Sewanee education 
for financial reasons. A total of #335,000 has been 
awarded by the college so> far in 1968-69 in scholar- 
ships and loans and an additional #50,000 spent for 
student employment coordinated through her office. 
Increasing enrollment and the imminent admission of 
women (many of whom are daughters of Episcopal 
clergymen and thus entitled to an automatic tuition 
reduction) have put further out of reach the almost- 
achieved goal of giving all needed aid, but endowed 
scholarships have received recent additions from the 
Dale Reich memorial (totaling $10,000 in February) 
and the Lawrence W. Bell scholarship in forestry. 
Malcolm Fooshee, '18, and Hinton Longino, H'52, 
have substantially increased the scholarships they have 

An exciting innovation in the placement field is the 
Business Career Fellows program, initiated last sum- 
mer with the placement office cooperating with the 
alumni director to place promising undergraduates in 
summer jobs with major organizations (see p. 33). 


A project to extend and resurface the Jackson-Myers 
Field runway to accommodate light twins with a good 
margin of safety is welcome news for a number of air- 
borne residents and visitors. New fields at Jasper and 
Winchester are expected to increase traffic. Col. Leslie 
McLaurin, '39, airport manager, cites figures showing 
that a new airport in a district brings in seven times 
the previous traffic for the whole area. 

One ol the Sewanee airport's regular fiyers-in is now 
the Postmaster-General of the United States, the Hon. 
Winton Blount. He is the father of Winton M. Blount 
III, '66, and Samuel R. Blount, who attended the col- 
lege 1965-68, iand the uncle of Bill Blount, '70. one of 
the football team's major assets. 


THE REV. DARYL CANFILL, '59, has returned to 
his alma mater as assistant chaplain. He was a 
Rhodes Scholar at Oxford and then entered General 
Theological Seminary, where he received the S.T.B. 
degree in 1963. Since that time he had been serving 
a parish and missions in the Baton Rouge area of 
Louisiana, achieving prominence in the diocese's youth 

THE REV. JAMES R. McDOWELL, headmaster of 
the Sewanee Military Academy, has been elected to 
membership in the exclusive Headmasters' Association, 
limited to heads of seventy-live private schools and 
twenty-five public schools in the United States. 


tling team record stood at 3-1, the swimming team's 
at 5-2 while the basketball team, suffering through its 
poorest season in many years, was at 2-1 1. 

The wrestlers lost to Georgia 24-12 but individual 
victories by Jack Baker, Bob Green, Bobby Lee, and 
Lawson Whitaker were impressive. The three team 
victories were over Southwestern at Memphis, Wash- 
ington University and Maryville College. 

The swimmers lost to powerful Tennessee and to 
Vanderbilt but have victories over Centre College, the 
University of Louisville, DeKalb College, Emory and 
Georgia Tech. Strongest event has been the fifty-yard 
freestyle event in which freshman Steve Griggs set a 
new record of 22.6 only to see it broken two meets 
later by John Colmore's 22.5. 

Despite its poor record, the basketball team put to- 
gether a team effort and a shooting percentage ap- 
proaching sixty percent to defeat David Lipscomb 47- 
44 in its final pre-exam outing which provided long- 
suffering fans a spark of hope for the remainder of 
the season. 

March 1969 

Dialogue was established 

Theology is Where the Action Is 

Sometimes an Ivory Tower, if it has doors and 
windows and a good airport close by, can be 
closer to God and His world than a house in the 

For as far back as anyone can recall, the School of 
Theology on the mountaintop campus of the Uni- 
versity of the South has been grappling with the cru- 
cial concern of all religions and hence all seminaries — 
how to demonstrate the church's relevance to the 
twentieth century. Paralleling the studies that went 
into the controversial Pusey Report, the School of 
Theology has poured its collective creative energy into 
re-shaping itself to meet present-day needs. 

A recent effort to bring theology to life and life to 
theology was a dramatic three-day conference, called 
"Making Theology," in Winston-Salem in December. 
In cooperation with the Church and Clergy Institute, 
the entire faculty went to where the action was. 
Twenty-two clergymen of six denominations followed 
leading business men on the rounds of their daily life, 
and the faculty of Sewanee's School of Theology, as 
continuing education, asked them to discover in the 
experience a theology of industrial life. 

The School of Theology has sponsored a curriculum 
consultation guided by experts from several fields, 
secular as well as religious, with participants from 
twenty seminaries of twelve denominations. 

It has added representatives of other denominations 
to its faculty, pioneered in demanding expression from 
the total selves of its students under the leadership of 
an advanced communications expert, revolutionized its 
orientation program to get students to command their 
education structure in partnership with the faculty. 

An earlier attempt to take theological education out 
into the field — "putting the School on wheels," Dr. 
Stiles Lines described it — was the Ministry of Change 
conference in Atlanta last spring, attended by some 175 
clergymen and laymen. 

March 16-21 the senior class will make a "field 
plunge" from St. Luke's to Chicago, where they will 
have a guided experience in the problems of the church 
in the inner city, with the cooperation of the inter- 
denominational Training Center for Christian Mission. 

A Fellows-in-Residence program was inaugurated 
January 19, when three alumni of the seminary re- 
turned for a two-week period of study and reflection on 

their ministry, away from daily pressures. The Rev. 
Edward A. Rouffy, '6i, Rev. C. Murray Lancaster, 
'63, and Rev. John M. Barr, '51, were the first in what 
is hoped will be a continuing procession benefiting 
from the positive side of Sewanee's isolation. This 
new venture was made possible by the support of 
the St. Luke's Alumni Association, as was the Winston- 
Salem experiment. 

Thus, instead of waiting to be pulled along by ir- 
resistible currents, the School of Theology is taking 
its place in the forefront of the movement toward 
more adequate theological education, to produce, as 
its dean, the Very Rev. George M. Alexander, says, 
"a cadre of men who will be able to lead the church 
solidly and powerfully into the 21st century." 

The School of Theology has given long and deep 
thought to the possibility of moving away from Se- 
wanee to a cluster of theological schools in an urban 
center, as Bexley Hall moved away from Kenyon Col- 


"This approach is clear and compelling," Professor 
Charles L. Winters concedes. "It can accomplish in 
one stroke ecumenical dialogue, contact with the latest 
secular thought, and involvement in urban living." 

The School of Theology, however, has decided it is 
where it wants to be and where it should be. For one 
thing, with improved highways and convenient air 
transport the School of Theology can be mobile, as it 
is demonstrating. 

"Most important," says Father Winters, "many of 
us are not convinced that the urban cluster is really 
getting to the heart of the problem." 

The School sees the problem as how to remain 
faithful to the gospel while at the same time being 
flexible enough to adapt to change. 

"Usually a clergyman assumes he must choose be- 
tween fidelity and change. We are concentrating on 
helping a candidate for the ministry to see the tra- 
dition as a record of how people have responded to 
calls from God to do new things — as Abraham was 
called from his homeland, Israel from Egypt, and the 
disciples from their old lives — rather than as a deposit 
of changeless answers." 

The Sewanee News 

For who knows what the currents of change will 
be in twenty years? Father Winters compares 
the kind of theological education required to a 
liberal arts grounding on the undergraduate level, with 
adaptation to specific conditions to be acquired on the 

The task is not a light one. "It is much easier to 
tell a man what to think than to teach him how to 
think," Father Winters says. "We attempt to provide 
a situation in which a man is encouraged to deal, him- 
self, with what is happening to him." 

The recent experiment in Winston-Salem helped the 
faculty evaluate how far this approach may be feasible 
and at the same time to test past theological training. 

Were the highly selected clergymen flexible enough 
to perform the vigorous thought processes demanded 
of them? Could the new breed, having undergone the 
dynamic new program, do better if the experiment were 
repeated in three years' time? How can we best pre- 
pare them? These are some of the questions that are 
being asked very hard in St. Luke's Hall. 

The Rev. Martin R. Tilson, '48, president of the 
St. Luke's Alumni Association, was a member of the 
staff for the conference. Alumni clergymen partici- 
pating were the Rev. Thomas Eugene Bollinger, '59, 
the Rev. C. Phillip Craig, '58, the Rev. Robert L. 
Haden, '60, and the Rev. Peter Robinson, GST '53. 

Organizations that cooperated with the participation 
of their high-level management in North Carolina were 
Western Electric, the nuclear medicine laboratory of 
the Bowman Gray School of Medicine, Pilot Freight 
Carriers, R. J. Reynolds Tobacco- Company, Renfro 
Hosiery Mills, Chatham Manufacturing Company, 
Heritage Furniture, Security Life and Trust, Wachovia 
Bank and Trust, and McLean Trucking Company. 

Clergy and management fauna to the surprise of 
both that many of their problems are similar. "Pro- 
fessional management has to deal constantly with 
human beings and help them solve their problems so 
they can perform adequately," Father Winters says. 
"It is very similar to what we call pastoral counseling." 

Enlightening owners (stockholders, the supporting 
church) to necessary change was seen as another prob- 
lem in common, with business having much to offer in 
the way of helpful techniques. 

One of the collaborating business men thought his 
clergymen-visitors, while respecting the results of 
management's concern for workers, were critical of its 
motives as profit-making rather than religious. 

Not so, say the professors. 

Dr. Stiles Lines, head of the planning committee 
for the School of Theology, says, "We recognize the 
validity of self-interest as an inevitable and perhaps 
desirable part of any social enterprise, whether under- 
taken by business men or priests. The question is, 
how is this self-interest dealt with and how open are 
the persons involved to negotiation when confronted 
with the self-interest of others?" 

The Cross, symbolizing complete self-abnegation, is 
not a transferable model, says Lines, for a nation, a 
corporation or any other group. "If a business gave 
away all its assets to the poor it would merely be de- 
priving society of a resource." 

Although they felt more time was needed for the 
group evaluation of the Winston-Salem experience, the 
professors were by no means discomfited by some 
heated reactions from the clergy group to the thought 
processes to which the men were asked to subject 

"Dialogue was established," says Father Winters. 

Getting a first-hand look at the- daily pressures facing modern business men during the St. Luke's conference in Winston- 
Salem were, from left, Ed Dell, managing editor of the Episcopalian magazine, the Rev. Robert L. Haden, Jr., of Trinity 
Church, Columbia, South Carolina, and the Rev. Charles Winters of the St. Luke's faculty. Their host was Robert Ge- 
roy, vice-president-information services, Security Life and Trust Company.

The Rt. Rev. George Leslie Cadigan, 
seventh Bishop of Missouri, is a native 
of Mt. Vernon, New York. He attended 
the public schools of Mt. Vernon, 
Episcopal High School in Alexandria, 
Virginia, and was graduated from Am- 
herst College in 1933. After Amherst 
he attended Episcopal Theological 
School, Cambridge, Massachusetts, for 
two years, leaving to spend a year at 
Jesus College, Cambridge University, 
England. Ordained in 1935, he served 
as curate in Amherst and as a rector 
in Brunswick, Maine; Salem, Massa- 
chusetts and Rochester, New York, be- 
fore being elected Bishop Coadjutor of 
Missouri in 1958. He served less than 
a month as coadjutor and then suc- 
ceeded the Rt. Rev. Arthur Lichten- 
berger, who resigned to become Pre- 
siding Bishop. He has been particu- 
larly noted for furthering ecumenical 
and interracial relations. He is married 
to the former Jane Jones of Cincinnati 
and they have three sons and a daugh- 

The Rt. Rev. Thomas Augustus Fra- 
ser, Jr., became Bishop Coadjutor of 
the diocese of North Carolina and 
hence a trustee in 1960 and 
diocesan bishop in 1965. Born in At- 
lanta, Georgia, he was educated in pub- 
lic schools of Brooklyn, New York and 
is a graduate of Hobart College. His 
B.D. degree is from Virginia Theologi- 
cal Seminary, 1941. He served as rec- 
tor of St. Paul's Church, Alexandria, 
Virginia and St. Paul's Church, Win- 
ston-Salem, North Carolina. He has 
been on executive councils of the dio- 
ceses of Long Island, Virginia, and 
North Carolina; on the board of trus- 
tees of Virginia Seminary; and on 
diocesan departments of missions, pro- 
motion and Christian education. He 
is married to the former Marjorie 
Louise Rimbach and they have a son 
and a daughter. 

The Very Rev. Robert Ray Parks, 
T'49, dean of St. John's Cathedral, 
Jacksonville, has served two three - 
year terms as a Florida trustee, one 
1960-63 and the other 1966-69. He was 
graduated from Landon High School 
in Jacksonville and the University of 
Florida, B.A. 1940. As an undergradu- 
ate he majored in English and was a 
member of Chi Phi fraternity. During 
World War II he was a combat naval 
aviator with the rank of lieutenant. At 
Sewanee he was president of the stu- 
dent body of the School of Theology. 
He is married to the former Nancy 
Lamar Bostick of Quincy, Florida, and 
they have two sons. Dean Parks is 
chairman of the board of trustees for 
Jacksonville Episcopal High School, 
president of the Travelers' Aid So- 
ciety of Jacksonville, president of the 
Florida Council of Churches, and 
chairman of the board of directors of 
Cathedral Manor, Inc. 

William Chipman Honey, '53, is in 
his twelfth year as a member of the 
board of trustees from the diocese of 
Missouri. A Beta Theta Pi, he majored 
in English, went on to Washington 
University law school, and won the 
LL.B. degree in 1955. He then served 
two years in the army and went into 
law practice in St. Louis, where he is 
in the firm of Lashly, Neum and Wat- 
kins. He is TV committee chairman 
for the St. Louis Bar Association and 
is also a member of the American Bar 
Association. He has been an active po- 
litical worker and has served as a pre- 
cinct captain and on his county com- 
mittee (party not known). He has also 
been a vestryman and secretary for 
his parish. He was married to the 
former Roberta Mare and has four 
children, a boy and three girls. He has 
two alumnus brothers, A. E. Honey, 
Jr., and J. Kimpton Honey. 

Honey's fellow Missourian, the Rev. 
Harry E. Maurer, GST'59, has served 
two three-year terms as a trustee, the 
first starting in 1960. Vicar of Trinity 
Church in Kirksville, he attended the 
Graduate School of Theology for six 
summers. He was graduated from the 
University of Missouri in 1949 with a 
B.S. in business administration, is a 
member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. He 
worked in hotel management before 
entering Eden Theological Seminary in 
Webster Groves, Missouri, in 1954. His 
B.D. is from the Episcopal Theological 
Seminary of the Southwest, 1957. He 
has taught "Life and Literature of the 
New Testament" at Northeast Missouri 
State Teachers College. 

Institutions, including colleges, 
ore usually more conservative 
than individuals, and are there" 
fore extremely slow to update 
themselves. And this in part ac- 
counts for the restlessness on 
many campuses. Too often we 
are forcing the new wine of an 
ebullient, sophisticated youth in- 
to the old wineskins of a former 
generation. We should not be 
surprised when the skins give 
and there is spillage. 

All of which prompts me to 
suggest that being a Trustee of 
the University must mean more 
than building buildings or watch- 
ing the endowment grow. Our 
task is bigger than that. As Trus- 
tees, we are "entrusted" with 
the present well-being and the 
future potential of a thousand 
young men. Somehow, for their 
sake as well as for ours, we must 
understand them.

December Surge 

Promises New 
Momentum in Giving 

(continued from page 3) 
you become too exercised about the recklessness of 
this communication let me assure you that this is not 
Sewanee's dollar. Not yet anyway. It can be, along 
with many more, when you help. This dollar is one of 
over #5,000 I have raised personally to do for Sewanee 
a job which only we can do." 

The reaction was immediate. The specially marked 
reply envelopes began pouring in. By the end of Janu- 
ary, 1,730 replies had been received and they continue 
to come. Many (921) simply returned the dollar bill, 
usually with no identification of the sender. These, of 
course, even when identified, were not counted as con- 

The gift total so far from Mr. Ayres' letter is 
upwards of #16,979, exclusive of returned "seed" 
money, coming from 809 alumni. 
Mr. Ayres' letters produced a number of comments 
from alumni, most of which were complimentary and 
approving. But a few — less than fifteen — expressed 
opinions which ranged from mild disapproval to vio- 
lent protest. Some of those who registered objection 
sent gifts nevertheless, several for the first time in 
their lives. One alumnus wrote that the technique 
was so offensive that he almost did not send his gift 
of more than #1,000, his first gift since 1965. 

Many alumni gifts did not arrive in time to be 
counted in the 1968 gift record and will be credited 
as 1969 contributions. These alumni will not be so- 
licited again this year. 

It is important that those alumni who object to Mr. 
Ayres' letter — and other appeals for gifts which may 
be somewhat different in tone from the usual Sewanee 
approach — understand the new inflection in the voice 
of request. There is no desire to offend, no affinity for 
the undignified, no interest in degrading the good 
name of Sewanee. Rather it is a genuine respect for 
Sewanee and an urgent belief that the world deserves 
the survival of an even better Sewanee which dictate 
the words of appeal. 

1959 I960 1961 1962 1963 1964 1965 1966 1967 

The black bars represent Sewanee-in-the-Budget, the gray bars 
Theological Education Sunday Offerings. 

The realization of the hard facts of economic sur- 
vival which face all private educational institutions 
makes those who believe in Sewanee bold. Accurate 
communication of the facts — those which describe 
problems and those which define success — becomes 
more important than style. A sufficient number of 
loyal Sewanee supporters are ready to do battle for 
a noble cause and some chips will fall. 

It is well that a momentum of both spirit and action 
continues into the new year. The need for "normal" 
gift support will be no less. In fact, it will be required 
that #446,811 of unrestricted money be raised in fiscal 
1968-1969 just to balance the operating budget. In 
addition we have the announced objective of raising 
#750,000 during 1969 to build a student center as a 
memorial to the late Bishop Frank A. Juhan. 

Under the chairmanship of Dean Robert L. Lan- 
caster, a committee of able volunteers is preparing to 
launch the drive for Juhan memorial gifts soon. Al- 
ready more than #130,000 has been subscribed. 

Alumni and friends who are familiar with Sewanee 
are aware that the existing "student union" is a wholly 
inadequate solution to the need for a center for the 
social and extra-curricular activities of students. The 
addition of women intensifies a problem which is al- 
ready all but intolerable. An attractive student center 
is widely cited as Sewanee's most glaring need. It is 
appropriate that this structure has been chosen as the 
memorial for a man whose interest in students was 
conspicuous throughout his life. Those who loved and 
admired the Bishop and those who care about students 
have an opportunity, through the Bishop's Center, to 
give tangible expression to their special concern.

Here's to Robert Ayres 

Whose lead we have to foller, 

Who among the Christmas cards 

Sends us all a dollar. 

He takes an awful chance 

Dispensing these greenbacks. 

My Christmas bills are piling up; 

There's January's tax. 

I'm tempted to retain it 

And say to Ayres — tough luck — 

You gambled on the wrong 

Horse, and lost Sewanee's buck. 

But wait — Ayres jolts us with a further fact, 

Staggering if true — 

When matched with Amherst's giving grads, 

They beat us 8 to 2. 

(Why Amherst with, he matched us, 

In percentage of donation? 

Could it be because in gifts 

They're tops in all the nation?) 

I never met an Amherst man 

(That giver altruistic) 

But I'd be an ass if I'd let one surpass 

Me as a donative statistic. 

— Ogden Nash Gray, '53

// is, of course, largely by the extent of the support 
accorded to a college by its own graduates that 
the ivorld judges of the right of that college to 
seek cooperation of others in planning for the 
future. An institution that cannot rally to its 
financial assistance the men who have taken its 
degrees and whose diploma is their passport into 
the world is in a poor position to ask assistance 
from others. It is not merely what alumni give; 
it is the fact that they do give that is of 
supreme importance.

Special thanks to those who gave small gifts 

when they could afford no more. 

. . . I am a po' graduate student, 
financially below the officially-established 
poverty line, but your appeals for 
money for Sewanee get to me anyway. 
I can't give much. But Mr. Ayres' 
recent challenge seems to indicate that 
the number of contributors is almost 
as important, for purposes of impressing 
foundations, as is the number of dollars 
contributed. So add one more member 
of the class of '63 to the list, but forget 
how little he could contribute.

The government by the nature of its obligation 
to its citizens in a democracy must provide 
education and utilitarian training for vast numbers. 
While state-supported institutions can be and in 
many instances are academically excellent, it is 
nearly impossible for tax-supported institutions 
to be intimate and personal. 

If the church is to stay in the business of 
education it may be because it has always 
recognized the transcendent value of the 
individual. Discovery of the nature and needs of 
each student is possible in a small college as it 
is not in a state-supported institution. 

— Edward McCrady

cident. He is survived by his wife, 
four daughters and a son. Burial was 
in the Sewanee Cemetery. 

Charles Lynwood Pueschel, '61, KA, 
was killed in an automobile accident in 
mid-October. He had operated the 
family business, the Pueschel Frozen 
Food and Produce Company of Lake 
City, Florida, since his graduation from 
Sewanee in 1966. He entered the Uni- 
versity in 1958 and was a member of 
that year's undefeated football team. 
After serving in the army, where he 
won an award as the outstanding 
trainee of his unit at Fort Jackson, 
South Carolina, he returned to Sewa- 
nee to receive his degree in economics. 

Lieutenant Franklin A. Mitchell, 
'62, was killed in an Air Force training 
flight near Selma, Alabama, on April 
7. He took off on the training flight 
in a T-33 jet with an instructor and 
shortly after evidently collided with 
another training plane piloted by a for- 
eign student making his first solo flight. 

Thomas Fletcher Reed III, T'70, was 
killed in a traffic accident January 23. 
A retired Air Force technical sergeant, 
he left a wife and three children. He 
and his wife were both active in scout-

models the company has made from Leonardo da Vinci's 
designs. Trie traveling exhibit was on display in both the 
art gallery and the Woods Science Laboratories. H. Stanford 
Barrett, artist-in-residence and inter-disciplinary activist, 
arranged the exhibition and was a featured speaker at the 
Tennessee Academy of Sciences meeting here in April. The 
three-section inter-disciplinary seminars are flourishing. The 
new dean of the College, Dr. Stephen E. Puckette, '49, in an 
address following the dedication of the science building, 
outlined his hope that the sciences might be drawn together 
for study in an orderly progression, pointing out that inter- 
disciplinary barriers are much less unbreachable at Sewanee 
than at most colleges.

Kayden, Hempstone 
Among Honorees 

The awarding of eight honorary degrees and a 
seminar on Europe Today by one of the world's 
most sensitive reporters are among this year's Com- 
mencement events. 

The Baccalaureate preacher is the Rev. Canon Rich- 
ard F. Cartwright, vicar of St. Mary Redcliffe, Bristol, 

Alumni bishops number fifty-two and fifty-three, 
Hunley A. Elebash and George Edward Haynsworth, 
head the roster of other honorary degree recipients. 
Elebash is bishop coadjutor of the diocese of East 
Carolina and Haynsworth is bishop of Nicaragua. 

Eugene M. Kayden, professor emeritus of economics 
and highly praised translator of Russian poetry, will 
receive the degree of Doctor of Letters. 

Smith Hempstone, '50, European correspondent for 
the Washington Star and the author of four major 
works based on his coverage of Africa and the Vietnam 
and Arab-Israeli wars, will receive his alma mater's 
doctorate of letters. He is the speaker for the Satur- 
day morning seminar. 

Berkeley Grimball, '43, headmaster of the Porter- 
Gaud School in Charleston, will receive the Doctor of 
Civil Law degree. 

Robert Worthington of New Canaan, Connecticut, 
a metals engineer who retired in 1968 as president of 
the Church Pension Fund after thirty-five years of 
service, will become a Doctor of Civil Law. 

A charming bypath from the Commencement 
solemnities will be offered on Saturday afternoon, when 
Emeline Dobbins will present a puppet show and 
exhibit of antique puppets. Mrs. Dobbins is the wife 
of E. Ragland Dobbins, '35. She was elected a member 
of the International Platform Association in the field 
of puppetry. This presentation is under the sponsor- 
ship of the Emerald-Hodgson Hospital Auxiliary, and 
the proceeds will benefit the hospital. 

Hunley Elebash received his B.A. from the LJniver- 
sity of the South in mathematics and did graduate 
work in mathematics at the University of Wisconsin, 
planning to become a teacher. During World War II 
he was a first lieutenant in the Marine Corps. He 
decided to enter the ministry and came back to Se- 
wanee to the School of Theology, winning the B.D. de- 
gree in 1950. He served churches in Florida and North 


Carolina and in 1958 was awarded a fellowship to 
the College of Preachers in Washington, D. C. He 
became Bishop Coadjutor of East Carolina on October 
2, 1968. 

George Edward Haynsworth served in the Army 
infantry during World War II, and was awarded the 
Purple Heart. He earned a B.A. from The Citadel 
in 1946 and a B.D. in 1949 from the University of the 
South. He served churches in South Carolina and 
Georgia, holding a number of diocesan posts in 
Georgia. He entered the Church's newest mission 
field, Central America, when he became rector of St. 
John's Church in San Salvador in i960. He was con- 
secrated Bishop of Nicaragua January 10, 1969 in a 
bi-lingual ceremony in Managua. 

Since Eugene Kayden retired from the University 
of the South economics faculty in 1955 he has 
made a career of his former avocation, translating 
Russian poetry. His translation of Boris Pasternak's 
Poems was the only volume of poetry by an American 
author to appear on Time Magazine's "Year's Best 
Books" list for 1959. His rendering of Pasternak's 
poems has been praised by Pasternak himself and 
by Sir Maurice Bowra, Oxford University linguist and 
scholar, among many critics. 

Smith Hempstone, who has been covering the Paris 
peace conference for the Washington Star, as well as 
Nixon's trip to Europe, followed his graduation from 
Sewanee with ten months as a Marine Corps officer in 
Korea. This military experience lends strength to his 
two war novels, A Tract of Time and In the Midst 
of Lions. His work as a war correspondent in Viet- 
nam and the Middle East has given both works a rare 
authenticity. The Institute of Current World Affairs 
sponsored Hempstone on a tour of Africa's developing 
countries, and he served as African correspondent for 
the Chicago Daily Neivs. From these experiences 
came two notable books, Africa — Angry Young Giant 
and Rebels, Mercenaries, and Dividends — the Katanga 
Story. He was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard 1964-65.

n and Off 

Plans for the dedication of the J. Albert Woods 
Science Laboratories and press seminar included 
Robert Lowell as the cluPont lecturer, and Andrew 
Lytle and Allen Tate evoking their specialized nos- 
talgia. It all seemed right as rain. This gave rise 
to some reflection. 

Many things about Sewanee have arisen by chance 
and been clung to by faith, that other, larger, more 
efficient institutions study, sweat over, and decree. 
Interdisciplinary spark-making is one of them. Se- 
wanee is so small and the men it has attracted to 
teach have necessarily had such broad interests that 
the disciplines here have never really had any 

This issue of the Sewanee News celebrates this as- 
pect of Sewanee happenchance. 

Lead-out scientist for the Woods Laboratories dedi- 
cation May 10 was to be Gerald Tape, Kennedy 
appointee as one of the five commissioners of the 
Atomic Energy Commission. He had been president 
of the Associated Universities in atomic energy and 
director of the Brookhaven National Laboratory. 

Along with the dedication of the building, brief cere- 
monies were planned for the Cooper Procter Benedict 
Court, the William T. Allen Physics Seminar Room, 
the Webb Greenhouse and Botanical Facilities, the 
Roy Benton Davis Reading Room, and the H. Fraser 
Johnstone Book Collection. 

A Vice-Chancellor's and Trustees' Society dinner in 
Cravens Hall was set for the evening. Dr. Edward 
McCrady, Sewanee's one-man inter-disciplinary an- 
thology, was asked to re-state the reasons for the 
University's decision not to seek federal aid to finance 
the science building. Members of the press were in- 
vited to question the Vice-Chancellor as sharply as 
thev chose. 

Members of the Education Writers Association were 
invited to an institutional open house for the day of 
the dedication and the three days following. The Edu- 
cation Writers Association is a national professional 
organization of reporters and editors who specialize 
in education, and the University of the South is an 
affiliate member. 

Sewanee's invitation to the press to share a self-ex- 
amination focused around three central topics: "A 
Small College in a Science-Oriented World," "Have the 
Sewanees a Chancer" and "The World Student Move- 
ments." The academic showcase was also- to exhibit 
Allen Tate and Andrew Lytle in "Meet the Sewanee 
Review" and a regular meeting of Section A of the 
inter-disciplinary seminar, Contemporary Conjecture. 

The new dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, 
Dr. Stephen E. Puckette, '49, consented to come in 
from Kentucky to share with Dr. Harry Yeatman, 
professor of biology, the consideration of the role in 
science of a small college. 

Senator Howard Baker of Tennessee, who attended 
Sewanee during World War II in the Navy program, 
agreed to join the discussion on the puzzling phe- 
nomena appearing on campuses all over the world. 
Also to speak on this subject was John Popham, 
managing editor of the Chattanooga Times, chairman 
of the Southern Education Reporting Service, and 
father of John Nicholas Popham IV, '71, star athlete 
and honor student. 

Deans Lancaster and Webb were prepared to offer 
views from faculty and administration, and Stephen 
Zimmerman, 71, Purple feature writer, agreed to 
represent the students. 

On the vital question of whether any small independ- 
ent liberal arts college could realistically hope to sur- 
vive, Robert Sailstad, director of educational affairs 
and public information for the Duke Endowment, was 
to offer an objective prognosis.

Dr. McCrady's course in the philosophy 
of science. Biology 316, was a precursor 
of the thriving inter-disciplinary semi-

Professor Robert Lundin's widely used psychology 
textbook, Personality, has been revised and updated 
for a new edition. MacMillan is the publisher. The 
subtitle has been changed from An Experimental Ap- 
proach to A Behavioral Analysis, reflecting an increased 
behavioral emphasis in the light of recent studies as 
well as the expanded scope of the book. This, Dr. 
Lundin's fourth major volume, sells for $7.95 and is 
available through the University Supply Store. 

A new assistant director of admissions is expected July 
1, replacing David Paschall, '6y, who plans to return 
to graduate school. The new man is Paul Ervin 
Engsberg, now assistant registrar at Washington Uni- 
versity in St Louis. A native of Lebanon, Missouri, 
he holds a B.S. degree from Central College, Fayette, 
Missouri, in business administration and psychology 
and an M.E. from the University of Missouri in guid- 
ance and counseling. He has done five years of college 
student personnel work, two in admissions, and is in 
his sixth year as assistant registrar. 

Sports Illustrated in its February 24 issue carried an 
amusing story on Lon Varnell and Sewanee. Called 
"Down with the Heathen" (from the Sewanee cheer, 
"Down with the Heathen, LTp with the Church"), the 
story is summarized by the magazine: "Lon Varnell 
coaches gentlemen at the University of the South, 
meaning he is a fellow with great patience and hope." 
One aberration that caught the fancy of the writer, 
Harold Peterson — "Illustrating their ferocity and fer- 
vor as fans, the Arcadian Tigers bring books along to 
read at basketball games. " 

a home on the Mountain and will continue to work 
for her. In his two years as Chancellor he has made 
that office far more than a ceremonial one. He has 
kept the trustees informed and active and beat the 
bushes for Church Support for the University of the 
South. There stems to be no legal obstacle to his 
completing his six-year term as Chancellor, but in 
whatever position, at a youthful sixty-five there is no 
doubt that he will render the University many years 
of wise and vigorous service. 

Doing their part to keep up Sewanee's record for 
graduate scholarships, which whenever analyzed has 
held in the nation's top ten college-level institutions, 
are, so far, four seniors. 

Two out of three newly established Oxford Scholar- 
ships at Keble College went to Sewanee men — George 
I. Chamberlain of Lookout Mountain and J. Edgar 
Schmutzer of Sevierville, Tennessee. Honorable men- 
tion was given James Beene of South Pittsburg. The 
scholarships are designated for graduates of Episcopal 
Colleges and are financed through the Association of 
Episcopal Colleges (Arthur Ben Chitty, '35, president) 
with the selection made by Keble College. 

William L. Taylor of Danville, Virginia, has been 
named a Woodrow Wilson Fellow and V. Gene Robin- 
son of Lexington, Kentucky, honorably mentioned. 

Jon Larson Jaenicke has a Root-Tilden scholarship 
to the New York LJniversity School of Law. 

Louisiana's loss when Bishop Girault AT Jones 
retires in June will be Sewanee's gain. He has built 

Prospective deans of women have been frequenting 
the campus and it is hoped that an appointment will 
be announced shortly. John Ransom, director of ad- 
missions, is delighted with the calibre of girls who 
have signed up. It looks as if more than a hundred 
will be here in the fall.

After McLuhan 

An inter-disciplinary colloquy, 
recorded for radio, between 
Dr. John M. Gessell, associate 
professor of pastoral theology, 
and Dr. Francis X. Hart, 
instructor in physics. 



Gessell: We really are living in a post-McLuhan age. 

What I mean by that is that many are aware that 
several years ago he wrote the Gutenberg Galaxy, but 
more people are aware of, even a fewer years ago, 
Understanding Media and this came to many people 
as an eye opener. Now, in a very short time, and 
maybe this is part of McLuhan's thesis, we have 
moved beyond his eye opener and are, in a sense, in 
a post-McLuhan age when I think no one in a general 
sense is going to quarrel with his insight — we may 
want to correct it and we may want to adjudicate, and 
we may want to disagree with specific applications, 
but here we are, having been made aware of one very 
important aspect of our modern culture, namely, the 
effect of media on the way we think. Now it seems 
to me we are working out in many fields the implica- 
tions of this initial insight that he was able to bring 
very forcefully to the attention of so many people. 

Hart: I have to agree with you that we are in a sense 
in this post-McLuhan age. We do agree with his 
central thesis, that media do 1 have a tremendous effect 
on the way we experience reality. I know that for 
the students, for example, the fact of the communica- 
tions explosion has opened up a new awareness of 
what is going on in the world. It has opened up for 
them a new awareness of just the technology itself, 
and has caused them to react against this. I think 
that McLuhan's -imposing the importance of technology 
on us has created a reaction on the part of humanists 
and: students in particular against this. 
Gessell: What about the humanists'- reaction? Do 
you have anything to say about that? About the re- 
action of people who are humanistically oriented? 

Hart: I think they are very disturbed by the tre- 
mendous influence that media have upon us. I think 
rightfully so. A couple of aspects I would like to 
bring out about the effects of the electronic media — I 
can talk about physics in particular — is that it has had 
beneficial and bad effects. For example: it has 
enabled us to do a lot more in high energy in nuclear 
physics because we can carry out calculations in a 
few minutes that would have taken years to do just 
by hand, and it has built up our space program, of 
course. It has had a bad effect in the very nature of 
the information explosion which he has discussed. He 
mentions the existence of the information explosion 
and he feels that this is a good thing. But I would 
like to point out that there are limitations in this, be- 
cause I know, personally, one gets overwhelmed by 
the vast amount of data in the field which you have 
to assimilate as a person. 

Gessell: That has been my experience, precisely. 
Information overload and trying to sort out all the 
competing signals. 

Hart: And in a sense it doesn't increase your efficiency 
as he would claim but rather decreases it — the effici- 
ency of the scientist in the field, as a whole — because 
since I can't read all the literature someone else may 
be doing exactly the same thing that I am doing and 
we have really lost a good deal of time in this. In 
addition, there are some limitations on these com- 
puters that McLuhan himself doesn't seem to realize. 
For example: for computers to analyze you have to 
be able to put the data in quantitative terms. You 
have to set them up as bits of information that you 
can put mathematically onto* a magnetic tape as a 
signal. And you can only extract data from reality 
which are susceptible to coding. And SO' there are 
many things in reality that you cannot do this to — 
that you cannot code — that you can't put on com- 
puters. You mentioned something about the applic- 
ability of computers to' solving social problems. I 
think that we would be very limited in this. 
Gessell: Let me ask you a question. I was talking 
to a planner the other day who is working with some 


The Sewanee News 

of the programs at the University of Tennessee Space 
Institute down in Tullahoma. He said that one of 
the interesting things for him was working on the 
problem of qualifying qualities, that is, assigning a 
number to a quality so that it could be computed. 
What do you think about that? 

Hart: I think that is interesting. Things of this 
nature have to be done, but you have to realize the 
limitations. The Army, for example, has worked out 
a lot of tests assigning numbers to emotions — you 
present a person with a given situation and ask him 
how he feels and then you can qualify this. This 
has great limitations. I've worked personally with a 
test of this sort, and you have to take it with a grain 
of salt. 

Gessell: It seems to me that the reporting of the 
subject would be highly subjective. 
Hart: Yes. 

Gessell: Then what kind of objectivity would you 

Hart: Different people will develop different codes 
and come up with different — slightly different — con- 

Gessell: So then every code is subject to the peculi- 
arities of the guy who is doing the coding? 
Hart: Right. 

Gessell: How would you, for instance (if you want 
to be a little amusing), codify the degrees of love that 
a person exercises towards a loved one — a husband 
toward his wife, for instance. 

Hart: I suppose you can set up alternative systems, 
as the amount of time he is willing to spend with her; 
the amount of money he is going to spend on her; the 
number of kisses per day he gives her; the number of 
times a day he praises her. Each of these would give 
you a different index and it could all be interpreted. 
Gessell: I suppose there is a limit to that possibility. 
I hope there is, to tell you the truth. 
Hart: Just one thing I wanted to mention on com- 
puter technology. McLuhan often says that the past 
and the present are all brought to you at once. That 
you are able to have, in principle, a total knowledge 
of the past and the present that you can go to, to 
help you with the solutions to problems. I have to 
point out that there is a real limit, a finite limit on how 

much information a computer can process. This is be- 
cause there is a limit on the number of logical steps 
that you can do, a lower limit. If you are going to add 
a certain number of figures or subtract, which is 
mainly what computers do, there is a certain lower 
limit on the steps you can take and also there is a 
lower limit physically on the speed for each step. And 
so you have to edit the information you put into a 
computer, just as you have to edit the information that 
goes out. 

Gessell: I take it that to some degree you find 
McLuhan's thesis too general, maybe a little glib, and 
possibly you would feel that you could not share the 
kind of enthusiastic optimism that he brings to- his 
view of the technological age in which we live. Is this 

Hart: Yes, this is true. I think that in order for him 
to win basic acceptance for his thesis he had to proceed 
in this glib fashion, in a popular way. If he had con- 
densed his work into thirty-five pages in a scholarly 
paper, it would have been widely ignored, probably, 
but because he was able to popularize it as such, and 
make these wild speculations, it created a lot of atten- 

Gessell: I ran across something that has been very 
helpful to me, and that is the way in which Professor 
Walter Ong, who is at St. Louis University, under- 
stands McLuhan's insight. He sees the real problem 
as, not how to control technology, nor how to harness 
the computer, nor how to do our planning in a rational 
way so that all problems can be solved well into the 
future. Walter Ong says, "We need to understand 
our own conditioning," and in this he is talking as 
McLuhan does. In some sense the cultural forms and 
structures that are the media, or the bearers of the 
content of our culture, do in fact have a very important 
influence on the ways in which we do our thinking. 
Here I am going to speak as a theologian, as you will 
speak as a physicist. My understanding of man, as a 
creature, is that he has the unique capacity for self- 
transcendence. That is to say, he is not limited by the 
biological limits that might describe him. It seems 
to me that he has the capacity, by a unique quality of 
the human spirit and by his very use of the powers of 
reason, to transcend his own limitations to some degree. 
(continued on next page) 

May -1969 

If we can understand those forces which condition 
us, then it occurs to me that we can also transcend 
the limitations of those conditions that the cultural 
media place upon us. If this is true, then it seems to 
me that there are a lot of implications for both social 
planning — and here I would like to include educational 
planning, and the implications that McLuhan has for 
both — for social policy and for educational curriculum 
design. And this to me is one of the positive implica- 
tions of McLuhan's thesis. 

Hart: I have no quarrel with his basic thesis — it's 
just the extensions of this that I have in some cases 
quarrels with. But I would like to point out that I 
don't feel that you can ever entirely get beyond this 
cultural conditioning. Because even the way we ex- 
amine our cultural conditioning is in turn influenced 
by our previous cultural conditioning, and so you 
really can never get outside of it. 

Gessell: I don't mean to imply that we get outside of 
it — I meant that we could use it positively, that these 
need not be unconscious aspects of our culture, but that 
we use the very things that condition us positively. 
Hart: I agree with that. I think that we have done 
that to a certain extent now — certainly advertising 
does it, and politicians do it, or make use of it, in 
appealing to voters and setting up government pro- 
grams. And I think that, again, its use depends upon 
the person who is effecting it, but certainly if it is used 
wisely, it can be a tremendous help. But, used un- 
wisely, it can certainly lead to 1984. 

I would like to ask you, whose responsibility do you 
feel it is for such a policy; if we are to use this con- 
ditioning for some good, who is to determine how it is 
to be used? 

Gessell: You mean, who is going to plan the plan- 
Hart: Yes. 

Gessell: My answer to my students when they ask 
this kind of question, and I think they ask it with 
some sense of anxiety, is that any society has within 
its normal structures the devices by which to- gain 
consent for social policy. That is, the policy makers 
can presumably use the insights of the planners. I 
doubt if the planners are the policy makers. The policy 

makers are generally, in our society, elected officials, 
the political structures of any community. 

For instance, people are always afraid that (now 
maybe I'm meddling here, but this is the analogy that 
I'm very conscious of) people are often afraid, and 
express it very forcibly in many ways in the public 
press that federal aid to education ultimately means 
control of education, and we don't think this is a kind 
of policy that we want to effect in the United States. 
My answer to this, and I am not alone, is that whether 
government aid to education does in fact mean govern- 
ment control is not automatic decision. We are not 
simply reduced to helplessness in the face of this kind 
of thing, but it does depend on whether or not we 
wish to make this our social policy. It is perfectly 
possible for government aid to education to be simply 
financial aid to assist private and public institutions in 
doing the best possible kind of job they can and that 
no control needs to be effected. But this is a matter 
of decision. 

This is partly, Frank, what I mean when I say that 
by becoming aware of the conditioning factors in the 
ways in which we look at the world, we are not subject 
to them as exercising a kind of unconscious tyrannical 
power over us. If we are conscious of these factors 
in our personal and social lives then I think we are 
freed to choose between options in a way we could not 
have been before. And this seems to be one of the 
gains of becoming aware of the way in which the 
media, or the matrix, or the structures of our lives 
have an effect upon the way we look at the world and 
the way we do our thinking. We can't be freed from 
the conditioners, but we are freed to use them and to 
effect the kinds of policies we want to. That's a long 
kind of response to your quick question. 
Hart: The reason I raised it is that I was recently 
at a Physical Society meeting in New York at which 
this technological explosion was discussed and the 
implications that it had for physicists in relation to 
society. If such planning is to take place, should 
those responsible for technical aspects take the prime 
responsibility for it, or should these decisions be left 
to "moral experts" such as theologians? And I was 
wondering if you felt that there was a real clanger that 
technocrats could just take this over. 

The Sewanee News 

Gessell: Yes, I think there is that danger and I 
would be against technocrats becoming responsible for 
the final decision, not because I distrust their tech- 
nology, because I don't really, but I distrust any one 
group of experts to make final decisions. You asked 
me if I thought the theologians or the moralists should 
make the decisions. I would say, for heaven's sake, 
no. not alone. 

One time I suggested to a friend of mine who was 
in a very important position in NASA that what they 
needed there was a kind of independent planning com- 
mission to be made up of the scientists, the politicians, 
the sociologists, the behavioral scientists and theo- 
logians. My inclusion of the theologian into this mix 
was something of a surprise to> my friend who- really 
had never thought of this. Then we began to talk ol 
the possibility of decision-making that comes out of 
this kind of consultation between people who represent 
a variety of concerns and a variety of disciplines, no 
one of which has, in our day, it seems to me, any way 
to be knowledgeable enough to make the final decision. 
I think this is a good model. I don't know anybody 
who is able to follow it, although if you look at the 
kind of staff that our presidents have gathered around 
themselves in recent administrations, I think you do 
find something approximating this kind of advisory 
and decision-making model, bringing together people 
from many, many areas of expertise and knowledge- 

AacLuhan, it seems to me, has been very dramatic 
by selecting out of all of the social structures the in- 
fluence of communications media on the ways in which 
we do our thinking, and has focused specifically, and 
I find myself fascinated by this, on the influence of the 
linear effect of the printed line on the way in which 
we perceive causality, for instance, or the way in which 
we perceive the forms of historical influence, and the 
way in which we see logic. Now, by suggesting that 
the visual mode of the printed line is no* longer an 
adequate model for interpreting perception, suddenly 
we are freed to look at things in a thousand ways we 
never were before. If we plan an educational design 
and we ask ourselves, what are the dominant factors 
in the educational environment that condition the ways 
in which our students think and learn, then this seems 

to me to free us to do some curriculum designing in 
ways that we were not able to do before, by taking 
seriously the conditioning factors that effect the ways 
in which they learn. 

Hart: McLuhan seems to feel that much of the tra- 
ditional classroom situation learning is losing its effect 
because of the influence that the media have had on 
the students of today. Would you comment on this 
in the light of what you just spoke of on curriculum 

Gessell: I have noticed in the past several years that 
the influence of printed media has declined. I think it 
is too soon to say why, and also we get a group of 
students that are so highly selected that it is not a 
normal population from which to make very many 
generalizations. But nevertheless, in professional the- 
ological education in the past five years, the influence 
of printed media has been partly taken over by the 
apparently greater effectiveness of the kind of free and 
open dialogue in which there is an immediate exchange 
of information between persons. I don't mean Mc- 
Luhan has done this, I mean he simply pointed out 
that this is what's eoing on. 

Hart: I know that with physics I find it hard to vis- 
ualize such a situation; for elementary physics or for 
teaching almost any course in physics. I think this 
linear presentation is good and I find it hard to picture 
any other way. And then so much of physics and 
mathematics instruction is concerned with involved 
mathematical expressions that I find it hard to imagine 
a simple oral type of learning. But at the New York 
meeting, again, which I attended, a method was sug- 
gested which was influenced mainly by McLuhan, in 
devising a new method of instruction for physics. A 
tape recorder carried the lecture at the same time that 
the student assistant put slides up for the students to 
view. Of course the two were run simultaneously, so 
that the students were bathed in sound and also< had 
these slides before them. And the person who had 
developed this method felt that because of McLuhan's 
ideas this would be a tremendous new way of teaching 
Gessell: What did you think?

Forestry Futures 

Sights high 

In the history of Sewanee happenchance, nothing 
is more peculiar than the evolution of its Depart- 
ment of Forestry. With a domain of ten thousand 
wooded acres to take care of, there had to be foresters. 
Nothing would do for Sewanee but the most scientific- 
ally oriented foresters, and so grew a department and 
a specialized vocational training. 

With a difference. Forestry majors were required 
to meet the demands of a liberal arts program. 

Forestry has offered another apparent anomaly. At 
a Sewanee asserting its intention to remain independ- 
ent of government, no cooperation has been more vi- 
able and fruitful than that between the Department of 
Forestry and the United States Forestry Service lab- 
oratory next door. 

If there is anything to the vigorously held tenet that 
liberal arts enhance a man's chances for leadership in 
a technical pursuit, Sewanee's forestry graduates ought 
to show it. The department had the curiosity and, per- 
haps, the temerity to find out. 

Recent forestry graduates were queried about their 
careers and the answers are summarized here. 

• Julian R. Beckwith III, '61, is assistant professor 
and student advisor in the School of Forest Resources 
at the University of Georgia. He teaches half time 
and does research and academic counseling the rest of 
the time. 

• Francis G. Watkins, '51, is director of the Division 
of Strip Mining and Reclamation for the Department 
of Conservation, State of Tennessee. This division is 
responsible for the administration and enforcement of 
the new Tennessee strip mine law which was enacted 
by the General Assembly in April, 1967. The law re- 
quires that surface mining operators obtain permits 
from the division and restore the mined areas to some 
useful condition. This is usually done by planting 
legumes, grasses, or trees. The division not only 
enforces compliance but advises operators in the proper 
conservation techniques to meet the requirements of 
the law. 

• Gary D. Steber, '59, is Forester, General Forestry 
Assistance Branch of the Cooperative Forest Manage- 
ment Division, State and Private Forestry, Southeast- 
ern Area, based in Atlanta. His job is to assist, 
through cooperative agreements, any timber organiza- 
tion in applying computer systems and techniques to 
forest manag-ement. He works in thirteen Southern 


states, from Texas and Oklahoma to Virginia and all 
states south. 

• Richard Applegate, '63, is District Supervisor for 
tlie Tennessee River Pulp and Paper Company in 
Tennessee, managing approximately 53,000 acres of 
forest land. 

• Hart W. Applegate, '58, is Forest Insect and 
Disease Specialist with the Tennessee Division of For- 
estry. His job involves detection and control of forest 
insects, diseases, and other pests on a statewide basis. 
Considerable informational and educational work is 

• Charles F. Prather, '55, is District Forester of the 
Northeastern District, Kentucky Division of Forestry, 
He has charge of all forestry and related activities for 
fifteen counties covering 1,250,000 acres. His re- 
sponsibilities include fire control, continuous forest 
management, tree planting, combating insects and 
disease, information and education, state forests, and 
such programs as the Neighborhood Youth Corps, 
Mainstream, and Concentrated Employment Program. 
He directs nineteen full-time employees and about 
twenty-five more during the fire season. 

Beckwith. Watkins, Steber and Richard Applegate 
have master's degrees in forestry from Yale University. 
Hart Applegate has an M.S. from the University of 
Tennessee with a major in entomology. Prather did 
not so to graduate school. 


The Sewanee News 

OciKxci:, mortality, government, student 
involvement, and social problems formed an 
inter-disciplinary mix for more than a hun- 
dred alumni, parents and friends of Sewanee 
who attended the first Sewanee-at-Kanuga 
conference April 11-15. 

Sponsored by the Associated Alumni and 
directed by Stuart R. Childs, '49, Fred 
Mitchell, '48, and Lester Leigh Smith, '49, 
alumni of Charlotte, North Carolina, the 
weekend continuing education conference 
at Kanuga Conference Center, Henderson- 
ville, North Carolina, attracted speakers 
from a variety of backgrounds.

SUNDAY SUMMING-UP: from left, Stuart Childs, Harry McPherson (speaking), Joe Gumming, H. Malcolm Owen, Brown 


May 1969 


High point of the conference came in the 
final session when Joseph B. Cumming, Jr., 
'47, chief of Newsweek Magazine's Atlanta 
bureau, reviewed the civil rights struggle 
since the Supreme Court's 1954 decision, 
from his vantage point as a Newsweek 
staffer who had covered virtually every epi- 
sode in the Southeast during that period. 

"His keen reporter's insight into the prob- 
lems which face the South — and the nation 
— during these times and his ability to 
articulate the depths of feelings of blacks 
and whites, who see their worlds changing 
so rapidly, made his lecture a stirring ex- 
perience for me," one alumnus wrote. 

Joining Cumming on the program were 
Harry C. McPherson, Jr., '49, a Washing- 
ton, D. C. attorney and former special 
counsel to the President of the United 
States; Harry Golden, a Charlotte, North 
Carolina, editor, publisher, author and 
social critic; Dr. H. Malcolm Owen, chair- 
of Sewanee's biology department; the Rev. 
Martin Tilson, T'48, Birmingham clergy- 
man and president of the St. Luke's alumni 
association; Dr. W. Brown Patterson, '52, 
associate professor of history at Davidson 

THE SOUTHERN SCENE: Joe Cumming, Sunday morning.

College and the organizer of the Sewanee 
Boys' Club. 

GOLDEN REFLECTIONS: Harry Golden (seated), 
Childs, McPherson. 

McPherson, who had been credited in a 
recent issue of Newsweek Magazine with 
playing a major role in President Johnson's 
decision to halt the Vietnamese bombing, 
touched briefly on the Vietnam situation 
and foreign affairs, but devoted the main 
thrust of his remarks to the government's 
part in social ills. 

He began his address immediately after 
Brad Whitney, Robert Crichton and John 
Barr had given a presentation on the Se- 
wanee Boys' Club, tracing its beginning 
from early discussions on the part of con- 
cerned students to the successful efforts to 
move the old Air Force ROTC building 
down to the village to serve as a home for 
the club. 

Purpose of the club, Whitney said, is to 
plan constructive play activities for young- 
sters in the community, to offer educational 
storing not only to youngsters but to adults 
as well, and to offer some technical train- 
ing for those who wish to prepare for a 
variety of jobs. 


The Sewanee News 

"I have never been more proud of Se- 
wanee than I was as I listened to those 
young men a few minutes ago," McPherson 
said. "They have placed their finger on a 
solution to the problems which face us- — 
personal involvement." 

Personal involvement in another area was 
demonstrated by Mr. Golden's remarks en- 
titled "Problems to be Faced and Dealt 
with." He discussed the social and psycho- 
logical problems of the Negro struggle for 
equality and human rights, pointing out that 

IN DISCUSSION: Moultrie Burns, '31, Brad Whitney, 70, 
Dr. Owen. 

the problems are not going to be solved 
until people begin to see the existing situa- 
tions from points of view other than their 

"Until then," he said, "we are simply 
going to continue meeting these crises with 
nothing more than 'make-do' solutions." 

An illustrated lecture on DNA, the newly 
photographed genetic code, served to bring 
those attending the conference into the 
classroom and demonstrated Dr. Owen's su- 
perb teaching ability. 

"Altough we've known in theory for 
many years that this existed and that it 
played the major role in genetics, its exist- 
ence has been proven by photographs only 
since February," he said as he proceeded 
to explain the complicated biological dis- 
covery in terms which made it relatively 
easy for everyone to understand. 

Calendar Cue 


April 3, 4, 5 

Sewanee alumnus and clergyman-profes- 
sor Brown Patterson elicited prolonged re- 
sponse in the question-and-answer period 
which followed his discussion of the student 

He said he had found a new student 
interest and outlook when he returned to 
his Davidson classroom last year after a 
period of study at Cambridge. He believes 
students are concerned about the affairs of 
the world and want to have a part in it. 

Mr. Tilson's Friday evening opening lecture, 
"The New Morality," had as its major point 
personal responsibility. 

"Responsibility to one's neighbor, one's 
partner, one's society, one's church will be- 
come a critical factor upon which our gene- 
ration and future ones will depend," he said.

Houston alumni, parents and friends turned out in record numbers to hear the Sewanee Choir in concert at the annua! 
Sewanee Club of Houston dinner held at Houston's new Racquet Club. 

Alumni Affairs 

Sewanee Clubs in Memphis, Texas and Mississippi 
joined with host parishes in welcoming the touring Se- 
wanee Choir during March and April. The programs 
consisted of the concert of sacred music followed by a 
reception in the parish hall where alumni, parents and 
prospective students had the opportunity to meet the 
students. To conclude the program, the choir gathered 
around a piano for an impromptu concert of secular 
numbers and Alma Mater. 

In Houston, where the choir spent a weekend, it 
provided entertainment for more than a hundred per- 
sons attending the Sewanee Club of Houston dinner. 

Alumni hosts in Houston were Willard Wagner, 
club president, Henry 0. Weaver and William M. 
Bomar, whose swimming pool made his home the 
gathering place for the choir and alumni. Alumni 
sharing responsibilities for the tour in other cities were 
George Clarke, Memphis; Billy Schoolfield, Dallas; 
Bob Ayres and Maurice Benitez, San Antonio and Jim 
Pettey and A. C. (Chip) Marble, Jackson, Mississippi. 

Sewanee Club events in other cities featured Dean 
John Webb in Washington and New York, Dr. Robert 

Lancaster in Tampa, and Dr. William Cocke in Green- 
ville, Mississippi. 

Three alumni of the School of Theology spent the 
last two weeks of January in Sewanee as the St. Luke's 
Alumni Association's first Fellows-in-Residence and a 
fourth came in April. 

Sewanee Club Awards, presented to outstanding high 
school juniors in Sewanee Club cities, are to be pre- 
sented to a record number of students this year. Vice- 
President of Admissions Louis Rice reports an en- 
couragingly early number of requests for the award 

Another major Sewanee Club contribution to the 
admissions program was the Birmingham Club-spon- 
sored trip to Sewanee for ten high school juniors in 

The Alumni vacation period, which began two years 
ago by offering dormitory accommodations for vaca- 
tioning alumni families at nominal costs, is scheduled 
for June 15-20, 1969. Meals at the University's dining 
hall, which have not previously been offered, will be 
available to vacationers this year. Also included in 
the vacation period fee are reduced rates for the Uni- 
versity's recreational activities.

The annual meeting of the Associated Alumni, on 
Saturday, June 7, will conclude the two-year admini- 
stration headed by President Robert M. Ay res, Jr., '49, 
which has brought about a new direction in the affairs 
of the association. 

Through the leadership of vice-presidents, the alum- 
ni organization can point to: 

© The largest number of alumni contributors in 
history. 2088 in 1968. 

• Increasingly effective work in Sewanee's admissions 
program with some 58 alumni serving as admissions 
counselors and others accepting special assignments 
from Louis Rice, admissions vice-president. 

• A renewed St. Luke's Alumni Association under the 
direction of Martin Tilson, vice-president for St. 

• An active role in Sewanee's Church Support pro- 
gram in which the alumni have agreed to "tackle prob- 
lem parishes." 

• The beginning of a continuing education program, 
with the Kanuga conference, St. Luke's conferences, 
Fellows-in-Residence, the St. Luke's Book Club having 
proved successful. 

• Service to the student body through Business 
Career Fellows. 

• An increased efficiency in the Sewanee Club pro- 
gram, with attendance figures surpassing those for 
previous years. 

Terms of the new president and his slate of officers 
will begin when they are elected at the annual meeting. 
One vice-president, the Rev. James Coleman, vice- 
president for St. Luke's, has already been chosen, by 
virtue of his recent election as president of St. Luke's 
Alumni Association. Other officers elected in mail 
balloting are the Rev. George Kuhnert, '50. first vice- 
president; the Rev. Ross Jones, '65, second vice-presi- 
dent; the Rev. Carl Jones, '63, secretary. 

Nominated for election by the University trustees 
as Associated Alumni representatives on the board 
are Dr. W. Reed Bell, '51, Pensacola and Dr. O. Morse 
Kochtitzky, '42, Nashvillle as lay representatives and 
the Rev. Martin Tilson. T'48, Birmingham as the 
clergy representative. 

Sewanee claimed its third College Athletic 
Conference golf title in four years and the 
baseball team shared a championship with 
Washington University, but despite these two 
victories, Sewanee finished fifth in the annual 
CAC competition. Washington and Lee won 
the President's Trophy for the second con- 
secutive year. 

In addition to spring titles, Sewanee won 
swimming and wrestling competition but 
championships in these sports will not count 
towards the overall CAC crown until next 

With the season-ending College Athletic Conference 
Spring Sports Festival scheduled for May 9-10 at 
Centre College, Sewanee needed a miracle to pull into 
contention for the 1968-69 CAC championship. 

They entered the two-day competition with twenty- 
live points, trailing Southwestern, which had amassed 
seventy-five through the fall and winter sports. 
(Wrestling and swimming championships claimed by 
Sewanee will not count in competition for the overall 
title until next year.) 

The golf team was given the best chance to> win a 
CAC title. It held a 10-7 season record and boasted a 
fourteenth-place finish in the University of Miami 
invitational tournament. The team is a young one 
and with this year thought to be one for rebuilding, 
its record was a pleasant surprise. Sewanee has domi- 
nated previous CAC golf tournaments, winning three 
of the last four. 

Sewanee's track team, off to> a disastrous o-} start, 
pulled above the .500 mark in late April with victories 
over Georgia State, Emory and a 116-30 defeat of 
Bryan College. John Colmore, competing sometimes 
in half a dozen events, has been the leading point 

The baseball team had a 6-13 mark after dropping 
a doubleheader to Middle Tennessee and a 6-2 de- 
cision to Vanderbilt on the last weekend in April. At 
the midpoint, second baseman Kesley Colbert had 
recorded two victories as a pitcher and had been a 
leading hitter, getting a grand slam home run to pull 
the Tigers from a seven-run deficit to victorv against 
Morris Harvey College. 

Tennis at Sewanee stood at 6-4, including a third- 
place finish in the TIAC tournament in Chattanooga. 
Tern Miller, playing in the number two singles spot, 
had a 13-4 individual mark.

Reading Lists 

The Alumni Council has suggested that it would be 
appropriate to include in the Sewanee News from time 
to time reading lists recommended by professors in the 
various disciplines. Following are the first two to be 

Hart: I certainly think that working with slides is 
very useful but as far as having someone else give a 
tape-recorded lecture. . . . 

Gessell: McLuhan would say that what you are 
talking about is the utilization of all the senses at once 
so that the learner is, as you say, bathed in an en- 
vironment, or bathed by an environment in which all 
the senses get into the act at once. And this is what 
he sees, I guess, as the communications revolution, isn't 
it? That we are not simply related to oral or visual 
modes, but the total, all the senses of the whole per- 
son are involved in this learning process. Some people 
learn better one way, others, another; but in any case 
they're all involved. So I assume that he would see 
this as supporting his thesis, and that the electronics 
media simply extend, in a very decisive way, the senses 
that we possess; extend them beyond ourselves in their 
capability for receiving messages. 

But I share your critical concern and I think that 
maybe if you and I said any one thing to each other, 
it might be that as educators, we are concerned to 
exercise our critical judgment about the thesis that is 
proposed by McLuhan, and that we need to select and 
to be critical of generalization. But that we need to 
select out of our own new forms of understanding, 
those things which work best. We need to work 
some experiments, for instance, to see what does work 
best. What is the best mode of teaching? What are the 
best ways in which students learn? This is partly what 
I mean by being freed to innovate in ways that I never 
would have thought of a few years ago< — -to innovate in 
our curriculum designing and our educational environ- 
ment to include in them the things we think the stu- 
dents need to be confronted with and need to experi-

had earlier spoken of plans to retire 

from his active ministry, which had 
been spent entirely in the Diocese of 
Texas. He had served parishes in Nac- 
ogdoches, College Station, Bryan and 
Kilgore and had served on several di- 
ocesan boards and commissions. His 
last visit to Sewanee came in 1966 when

pomattox-Buckingham area of Virginia. 
He was a retired Navy officer. 

A great segment of the past of Se- 
wanee and the South is lost in the 
death March 14 of Medora Cheatham 
Hodgson at the age of ninety-one. She 
was the widow of Telfair Hodgson, Jr., 
treasurer of the University from 1907 
to 1950, and the daughter-in-law of a 
vice-chancellor, who served from 1879 
to 1890. Her great-grandfather was 
General James Robertson, who, with 
John Donelson, was co-founder of 
Nashville. Her father was Major Gen- 
eral B. Frank Cheatham, C.S.A., a di- 
vision commander of the Army of Ten- 
nessee. One brother, Major General 
Benjamin Franklin Cheatham, Jr., was 
quartermaster of the U. S. Army and 
another brother was Admiral Joseph 
Johnston Cheatham, paymaster general 
of the U. S. Navy. As a newspaper 
editorial writer phrased it, "We know 
of no one who bore so much of history 
in one lineage." Generations of Sewa- 
nee students will remember Mrs. Hodg- 
son more for her grace of person than 
her historical connections. She is sur- 
vived by her daughter, Mrs. Edward F. 
Parker of Charleston, and by five 
grandsons, three of them presently in 
the college. 

Jack Hawkins, Sr., for forty-three 
years an employee of the University 
Supply Store, died February 6 at the 
age of seventy-three. He is survived by 
his wife, Catherine; a brother, Harry 
Hawkins of Sewanee; twelve children 
and twenty-six grandchildren. The sur- 
viving children are Jack, Marshall and 
Joe Hawkins and Miss Sue Hawkins, 
R.N., of Sewanee; John Hawkins of 
Chattanooga; Major Edward Hawkins, 
USMC, stationed in Vietnam; Robert 
Hawkins of Monteagle; Mrs. Joe Gar- 
ner of Cowan; Mrs. Jim Johnson, Se- 
wanee; Mrs. James Marshall, Nashville; 
Mrs. Dwight Sholey, Jr., Sewanee; and

ON THE COVER— Miss Judith Ward, first girl registrant as 
a full-time student in the college of the University of the 
South, is the sister of Rhodes Scholar Tom Ward, '67, and 
the daughter of a regent and former Church Support chair- 
man, Thomas R. Ward of Meridian, Mississippi, and Mrs. 
Ward. The sister of Bo Sheller, Tom Ward's classmate and 
fellow Rhodes Scholar, is also in the college. 

Change and Sewanee 


here is Sewanee in the strange academic 
world of today, so foreign even to younger 
alumni of the nation's colleges? Will her 
mountaintop isolation and the unmarred serenity of 
her natural environment screen her from the winds of 
change, frightening to some, exhilarating to others? 

Alumni and friends have a right to the best an- 
swers we can give them. And the view from the 
mountain may have more pertinence to non-alumni 
than they would suppose. The colleges that stayed 
out of the headlines last spring may well, from their 
good fortune in preserving the university's ability to 
observe and deduce in peaceful give-and-take, have 
more to contribute to the crucial national symposium 
than their scarred and shaken sisters. 

We lay no flattering unction to our soul. This 
writer firmly believes that Sewanee and similar small 
institutions escaped (so far) the ravages of the world- 
wide student revolution because they were not suffici- 
ently prominent targets to engage the most skilful 
wreckers, those bent on destroying with no more end 
result in mind than spars from a shipwreck riding a 
storm wave to batter down a shaky pier. 

In May the University of the South held a press 
seminar in connection with the dedication of the 
J. Albert Woods Science Laboratories. The purpose 
of the seminar was to invite the nation, primarily 
through members of the Education Writers Associa- 
tion (a professional organization of reporters and 
editors specializing in education), to observe at first 
hand a university that is guarding her independence 
at what may prove to be great cost. 

The scrutiny that led to the panel on "Can the Se- 
wanees Survive?" exposed the dangers as clear and 
present (see also p. 23). Monday's sessions — "Sci- 
ence in a Small College" and "Meet the Sewanee 
Review" — offered exciting reasons for fighting through 
the financial dangers. The dedication and the new 
building itself, unsurpassed anywhere for undergrad- 
uate instruction, offered a bright portent that o'er- 
leaping technology may still be the servant of man 
when guided by comprehending minds. 

As part of the seminar schedule a symposium was 

September 1969 

held on the world student movements. Significant ex- 
cerpts are included in this magazine (p. 8). Stu- 
dents of all known shades of opinion were invited to 
attend and to express their views. Verbal fireworks 
blazed in tradition-soaked Convocation Hall. At their 
conclusion a student, fully equipped with beard and 
the other superficial accoutrements that affront many 
elders, identified himself as secretary of the most radi- 
cal of the local student organizations and affirmed that 
to his knowledge no Sewanee student believed in in- 
terfering with the academic process. 

Another thanked the speakers for their honesty and 
said he felt the students had had a good hearing. 

How can one not be chauvinistic about Sewanee? 

Amherst College, too, underwent self-searching and 
open airing of problems last spring. No doubt many 
other colleges did, and in so doing helped to keep 
themselves from public notice. 

But there is change — make no mistake about 
it. Women are entering the college at Sewanee 
this fall, no of them. Girls have been happily 
received in the Sewanee Military Academy for a year. 

The Board of Trustees voted in June to include stu- 
dent representatives, two from the College of Arts 
and Sciences and one from the School of Theology. 
If this constitutional change passes the necessary sec- 
ond reading in 1970, students will be on the board 
the following year. 

Meanwhile they will have seat and voice. The Se- 
wanee Military Academy was also invited to nominate 
official observers to sit with the board and to be given 

The board in effect also abolished chapel attendance 
as a requirement for graduation, while at the same 
time taking steps to fortify the free religious explora- 
tions at this unabashedly Christian university. 

The new dean of the college, Stephen E. Puckette, 
'49, is pondering sweeping revisions in the curriculum. 
The faculty has already been moving strongly in the 
direction of inter-disciplinary flexibility. 

Sewanee is not, then, shielded from the winds of 
change. But embedded in her very traditions is 
resilience. The wind hurtles up from the valley but 
our precipice breaks tornado force, and only occasion- 
ally a few weak trees go down. 

On and Off 
the Mountain 


GIRLS are what's new at the college this fall. 

Lest anyone think that Sewanee has thrown over- 
board its habit of due deliberation (founders' plans 
for multiple colleges beginning to be realized a hundred 
years later, chapel completed fifty years after it was 
begun, etc.), it should be noted that Miss Judith 
Ward, our cover girl, is by no means the first co-ed. 
She is the first registrant toward a college degree. A 
great lady who liked to call herself "Sewanee's first 
co-ed" died July 13 at the age of eighty-eight. Eleanor 
Walter Thomas, Ph.D., D.Litt., was allowed to sit in 
on classes in the summer of 1901, provided she did 
not ask questions. 

Janis Lane and Elizabeth Murolo (now Pesillo) 
were the first women to be granted an earned Sewanee 
degree in 1965. Both ladies received the M.A.T. 
through work in the Sewanee Summer Institute of Sci- 
ence and Mathematics. 

In 1909 serious explorations were made toward a 
women's college, stopped only by lack of money. The 
Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Edward McCrady, has recounted 
the slow steps toward Judith Ward and her fellow 
women registrants in the September, 1968, Sewanee 
News. He mentions two ladies who antedated Misd 
Thomas by seven years. 

Here we are now, with so many highly qualified 
women applicants that the original timorous figure of 
an initial fifty has risen to 110. They come from 
twenty-one states and two foreign countries. Hawaii 
and Massachusetts have both sent daughters. 

Benedict Hall, the first dormitory to be built on 
the second campus, will house most of the giris. Two 
transfer students have been appointed proctors and 
they will also work with the warm and friendly dean, 
Miss Elizabeth Morrow (see p. 7). Benedict has 
been renovated and carpeted and such amenities as 
hair driers and full-length mirrors added, thanks to 
Dean Morrow. The dean has also included in her 
busy summer such activities as dashing about campus 
to see how many more ladies' rooms were needed. 

Asked to look into her crystal ball to predict the 
impact of the girls on the life of the college, Dean 
Morrow grew earnest. "I hope the men will not con- 
tinue to think of girls as play people for week ends 

but begin to think of women as people, with intellec- 
tual interests. It is this aspect of college which ought 
to bring people together, not just physical attraction." 
H Another new dean who has had a busy summer 
is Stephen E. Puckette, '49, dean of the college of arts 
and sciences. Dean Puckette, looking as slender and 
boyish and intent as he did as an undergraduate and 
with as little side, paced up and down like a caged 
lion in front of a large group of undergraduates at the 
invitation of the Student Forum in May, and an- 
swered all their questions frankly and engagingly. He 
thinks many curriculum changes are due and is work- 
ing them out with the faculty. Directions may be 
toward more inter-disciplinary flexibility in the first 
years, earlier specialization. 

"High school graduates now are much more sophis- 
ticated academically than they were ten years ago and 
I think we ought to take advantage of that. In gen- 
eral they are more capable of choosing for them- 
selves," he says. "They are able to specialize earlier 
without any real loss to their educational breadth." 

Dean Puckette is as dedicated as any of his prede- 
cessors to the Sewanee concept of the whole man. He 
thinks everyone should have horizons. A mathema- 
tician who in the last few years has headed up the 
undergraduate math program at the University of 
Kentucky, he avers that he has known people whose 
horizons were co-terminous with the edge of their 
graph paper. 

What will he do about possible dissidence and fric- 
tion? "I think friction is a good thing. When things 
go too smoothly in the life of a college we are in for 
a dull time. 

"No one is compelled to think as much as when he 
has his values questioned." 

K The college has retooled its orientation program, 
as the School of Theology had already done. Along 
with much general mingling and a close-packed three 
days of individual goal-seeking and in-soaking, small 
groups of new students will join upperclassmen and 
faculty members in discussions around a pre-set 
theme. It is hoped that relationships will be estab- 
lished which will be useful at least throughout the 
first year. Chairman for the program is the Rev. 
Daryl Canfill, '59, assistant chaplain. 


With the death of Mrs. Cora C. Webb of Nashville 
on July 14 at the age of ninety-three, a bequest with 
a current market value of $772,600 came to the Uni- 
versity. Nathan A. Crockett, chairman of the board 
of directors of the Third National Bank of Nashville, 
named the University in 1946 as residuary legatee of 
his estate, with a life interest to four brothers and 
sisters, among whom Mrs. Webb was the last sur- 
vivor. He died in 1949. 

The Sewanee News 

The Bishop's Common 

Called the Mary Lou Flournoy Crockett Fund in 
honor of Crockett's first wife, the trust is designated 
for scholarship aid to students from Middle Tennes- 
see, with Giles County to be given preference when 
there are qualified applicants from that area. Marleen 
Allen, outgoing director of financial aid (see p. 7), 
points out that this bequest will bring endowment for 
scholarships to over $3,500,000. Most of the interest 
will not be available immediately because of commit- 
ments by the fund's trustees to students at other col- 
leges, but the legacy is an enormous long-range boost 
to the vital scholarship program. Meanwhile the Uni- 
versity is dipping into its operating budget and re- 
placement funds are being sought to help ensure that 
no student who wants and should have a Sewanee 
education will be hampered by financial need. 


There is some semantic controversy (come on in, 
the water's fine) over the tentative name, the Bishop's 
Common, for the new student center but all 'else is 
proceeding with hopeful harmony. There is no one on 
earth or moon to gainsay the need, or the appropriate- 
ness of making it a memorial to Bishop Frank A. 
Juhan, '11. An anonymous gift of $100,000 and 
pledges of $30,000 from the William Stamps Parish 
Fund and $25,000 from Robert M. Ayres, '49, should 
get the project off the ground. Cost estimates run a 
million dollars, more or less. (Doesn't that always 
mean more?) Dean Robert S. Lancaster and his com- 
mittee invite, cajole and exhort gifts that will memo- 
rialize not only the Bishop but an unlimited number 
of other persons designated by the givers, and pro- 
vide for the social life of generations of Sewanee ladies 
and gentlemen. Is there a better investment? 

Architects are Godwin and Beckett of Atlanta, who 
were responsible for the duPont Library and the J. 
Albert Woods Science Laboratories. This will be an- 
other major structure. It will include a refectory, pub 
and snack bar, dining rooms, a ball room, post office, 
lounges and date rooms, card and game rooms, offices 
and work space for student activities. The building will

The score for summer 1969 is two up, three clown. 

The Sewanee Summer Institute of Science and 
Mathematics, sponsored by the National Science Foun- 
dation, and independent research on the undergraduate 
level were stimulated even beyond their earlier aston- 
ishing level of achievement by the new science build- 
ing, with its multiple laboratories and faculty-planned 

The Sewanee Summer Music Center was true to 
its form of every season better than the last, but it 
is hard to see how they can top this one, with 145 
students in Martha McCrory's hatchery for the na- 
tion's orchestras, and smash hit concerts to write to 
Vienna about. The Vice-Chancellor, no mean musi- 
cian, continued to play with the Cumberland Orches- 
tra, which is second string to the Sewanee Symphony. 
Radio programs of chamber music by the center fac- 
ulty and orchestra pieces played by the all-student 
Sewanee Symphony, programmed by Leah and nar- 
rated by Brinley Rhys, continue to be circulated. They 
have logged some thousand hours in the air from 
Maine and Canada to Alaska and Hawaii inclusive. 

On the sad side was the absence of the Sewanee 
Summer Fine Arts Center, which for three years 
tossed a bright-burning creative fervor into the Moun- 
tain mix. 

Enrollment in the College Summer School and in 
the Graduate School of Theology was down. Could be 
the only reason more undergraduate men and women 
are not availing themselves of the opportunity to 
shorten their college years, or more clergymen are not 
coming for intellectual updating and the chance to 
pursue a master's degree in normal vacation time on 
the delectable Mountain is because they do not know 
about it. One man was in the GST this summer after 
receiving his Master of Sacred Theology degree in 
June. He just couldn't stay away. 

September 1969 

Behind a smoke screei 
Abbott Martin 



If a Gallup poll were taken to determine the Sewa- 
nee professor most alumni remember with most affec- 
tion, Abbott Cotten Martin might well lead all the 
rest. He has lived for and in his students, and leaves 
little as a written record of his illumined perceptions 
of the English Language and literature, but much in 
human memory and personality. 

During his forty-one years on the College faculty 
"Abbo" won student friends behind a smoke screen 
of insult, prejudice, and derision. His most-often citeci 
prejudices include bad writing. Yankees, plant pests, 
and Germans. The last one he explained by saying 
that a German was a Yankee drawn to a logical con- 
clusion. Plant pests inspire his ire because they men-

For six vice-chancellors 
Mrs. Sutherland, John Sutherland, Dr. McCrady 


Forty-nine years ol trying to get Purple copy from 
student editors, holding a priority balance against 
clamors of "now" from every section of the campus, 
of turning out distinguished printing for the most dis- 
tinguished literary quarterly in America (the Sewa- 
nee Review) etc., etc., etc., ended August 31 with the 
retirement of John Calhoun Sutherland. 

Mr. Sutherland was born in Sewanee January 18, 
1902. When he first came to the University Press in 
1920 all type was set by hand. The first linotype was 
bought in 1929, and is still in use. In 1946 he was 
appointed foreman and in 1950 he became manager. 
He worked under Vice-Chancellors Knight, Finnev, 
Guerry, Gass (acting Y.-C), Green and McCrady. 

The duPont Library has on exhibit much of Mr. 
Sutherland's work. 

In the best traditions of Sewanee and the old world, 
John Sutherland will be succeeded by his able son 
Jack, who has worked with him for fifteen years. He 
is a rarely-skilled compositor. 


Dr. T. Felder Dorn, associate professor of chemis- 
try, is leaving after eleven years, three of them as di- 
rector of the Sewanee Summer Institute of Science 
and Mathematics. 

Dorn is joining the College Entrance Examination 

The Sewanee News 


Board in New York, as Dr. Ben Cameron, '42, now a 
national vice-president who also was once a chemistry 
professor, did before him. 

Dorn's successor as director of the National Science 
Foundation-sponsored summer institute is Dr. Eric 
Ellis, assistant professor of physics. 


Newest of the new appointees in the sense that her 
position is so fresh out of the box is Dean Elizabeth C. 
Morrow (see also p. 4). She came from Richmond, 
Virginia, where she was assistant dean of students for 
the Medical College of Virginia. She is a graduate ot 
Queens College, Charlotte, North Carolina, and has a 
Master's degree in religious education from the Bibli- 
cal Seminary of New York and an M.A, in guidance 
and student personnel administration from Columbia 
University. She has worked in administration and 
student counseling at William and Mary, Duke, Win- 
throp of South Carolina, Lees-McRae of North Caro- 
lina, the University of Mississippi and the University 
of Cincinnati. 


Marleen Bengel Allen, who in only two years as di- 
rector of financial aid and placement turned her newly 
established office into one of the most effective arms of 
the University, married her opposite number at the 
University of Kentucky. The wedding was on Sep- 
tember 13 at Otey Parish. Mrs. Allen was the 
widow of Dr. William T. Allen, chairman of the de- 
partment of physics. They had two sons. As director 
of financial aid she worked closely with the develop- 
ment office and built up the whole scholarship pro- 
gram, coordinated it with other kinds of financial aid, 
made each student who came to her her strong per- 
sonal concern, and won outstanding recognition from 
her peers throughout the South. 


Edv/in P. Welteck will join the development staff 
as director for special resources. He comes to us from 
the University of the Pacific at Stockton, California, 
where he worked in development since 1966. Except 
for a two-year leave of absence in 1961 to 1963 to 
work with Stephens College, he has directed fund- 
raising campaigns for Burrill, Inc., professional fund- 
raisers, since 1956. 

Born in New York, Welteck attended New York 
University. He is an Episcopalian. He is married to 
the former Mary Faye Jackson of Atlanta and has a 
married daughter. 

Marcus L. Oliver, director of development, expressed 
high hopes of Welteck. "We expect him to bring his 
rich, experience to bear on our need to find increased 
financial support," Oliver said. He will work in the 
major gifts area with alumni and friends of all divi- 
sions of the Corporation. 

Thomas D. Moore of Sewanee has been named di- 
rector of financial aid and placement for the college, 
replacing Marleen Allen. He has been administrative 
assistant to the headmaster of the Sewanee Military 
Academy and has also served the academy as business 
manager, soccer and baseball coach, and director of 
the summer school. He is a graduate of Tennessee 
Technological University and has an M.A. in educa- 
tional administration and Ed.S. (education specialist) 
from George Peabody College in Nashville. He has 
been principal of public schools in Tennessee and Co- 
lumbus, Ohio. He is the brother of Horace Moore, 
wrestling and track coach and assistant football coach 
for the college. 

Randolph C. Charles. Jr., '69, will work with Albert 
Gooch as director of special projects for the Associ- 
ated Alumni. The son of Dr. R. C. Charles, '33, of 
Bennettsville, South Carolina, Randy was an English 
major, chairman of the Honor Council, president of 
Delta Tau Delta, and held a number of other campus 
offices. He was selected for inclusion in Who's Who i/t 
American Colleges. 

Victor H. Gramount, Jr. has joined the University 
as audio-visual coordinator and public relations 
assistant. He is a 1946 graduate of Blair Academy in 
New Jersey, attended Georgia Tech and Georgia State 
and received the A.B. degree from Emory in 1963 
with a major in psychology and a minor in languages. 
Navy-trained in electronics, his service included duties 
as a communicator and combat aircrewman. He is now 
a lieutenant (public affairs designator) in the Navy 
Reserve. He was an actor and announcer for a num- 
ber of years in radio and television in Atlanta, and as 
Dick Gray was the object of teeny-bopper fan club 
squeals. His most recent position was as an informa- 
tion officer in the Georgia State Parks department. 

Paul Engsberg, assistant director of admissions, has 
taken hold most promisingly in that crucial depart- 
ment (see May Sewanee Nezvs). 

September 1969 

A symposium on the world student movements 
teas part of Sewanee's offering to the press in 
connection with the dedication of the J. Albert 
Woods Science Laboratories. Significant excerpts 
are offered here. 



Dr. Robert S. Lancaster 

Professor of political science, 

former dean of the College: 

All over the world students are restless, some 
of them engaging in revolutionary activity. 
They are concerned about the world in which 
they live, where it's headed, what they can do 
to improve man's lot in this world. We 
sympathize with that greatly. This panel will 
concentrate principally upon the grim scene 
today in the United States. Great universities 
have been disrupted. All of you have seen on 
television the character of this disruption. If 
is having many consequences for higher 
education ; it is disturbing administrators, 
sometimes driving them from their places. All 
are apprehensive, all are concerned. The 
disruption of the learning process inherent in 
the upheaval causes a great deal of concern and 
rage on the part of the public and will affect 
the amount of money that is available for higher 
education. The bewilderment, and divided 
loyalties among students and faculty members, 
the concern of both, and the militancy of some 
which characterize the disruptions will 
be explored in today's discussion. 


I might point out some of the causes for the wide- 
spread disruption which will serve as a framework 
within which this discussion might take place. Con- 
temporary knowledge does not appear as a unified 
whole, but as a group of distinct and specialized dis- 
ciplines. The age is characterized intellectually by 
tentative hypotheses, shifting and changing observa- 
tions. All of this has come to typify a way of think- 
ing. The curriculum in college has lost unity and 
cohesiveness. Complexity, diversity, specialization 
have made it more difficult to isolate a body of funda- 
mental knowledge. More and more of what we teach 
needs to have greater immediate utility. Colleges and 
universities are no longer considered merely as instru- 
ments for preserving and passing on traditional knowl- 
edge. They serve the economy. They serve as instru- 
ments of change. They discover and propagate new 
knowledge. Universities have acquired a new role in 
our society. 


Education has become public to an amazing extent. 
The number of persons in college has grown in the 
hundred years from 1869 from one and one-tenth per- 
cent of young persons eighteen to twenty-four years 
old to about twenty-five percent. Colleges and uni- 
versities have grown from the thousands to twenty, 
thirty, forty thousand students in one institution. They 
are consequently becoming impersonal, machine-like, 
almost ungovernable — cities in themselves with one 
president and a few assistants to direct the affairs of 
these complex institutions with a host of problems. 
Often teaching is done by student assistants struggling 
for a degree. Students get tired of all this — they get 
tired of being considered merely symbols for data 


Faculties have developed a new independence, a new 
sense of status. Higher salaries and the availability 
of grants from foundations and from government 
sources have resulted in a new attitude on the part of 
both faculty members and students; they look upon 
centers of learning as belonging to them. Students 
often expect an education as a matter of right. The 
colleges have tended to become public, even though 


The Sewanee News 


they are private. A new breed of students has 
emerged, in my opinion, from families that no longer 
command or discipline, but suggest and reason. The 
student has acquired learning from an early age by 
doing and experiencing. Students do more things and 
experience more things at an earlier age than they 
ever have before. Formerly they acquired some 
knowledge in this way too, but principally, I think, 
by remembering and by deducing. 

I suggest that all of these things that have happened 
over the past ten years in American education con- 
tribute to what we find on American campuses today. 

Dr. John M. Webb 

Francis S. Houghteling Professor of History, 
dean of men: 

We have to recognize that we are dealing with a 
generation which, as Kenneth Kenniston has 
pointed out, has taken the ideals of an older 
generation seriously. They ask why we are not 
putting these ideals into practice. They are 
impatient to move ahead. It is a generation which 
has grown up on the heels of the Civil Rights 
confrontation. It perhaps wants a confrontation 
of its own, and it has a set of goals taught it 
by the generation of its parents and of its 
teachers. It is a generation which has read and 
absorbed a good deal of the existentialist message. 


Recently there has been a rash of stern statements 
directed toward college administrators, but intended 
to be heard by students and faculties, urging a policy 
ot toughness with undergraduate restlessness. We do 
not need to waste time proving that we are opposed 
to the intrusion of irrational means into institutions 
whose fetish is reason. We do not have to say at 
length that we are opposed to force, to violence, and 
trespass, or to guns, vandalism, fires and disruption. 
All of us are in agreement here. There are, however, 
some related questions that have to be considered. 
While students may reject these irrational techniques, 
they ask the sensible questions: How do you get ad- 
ministrators and faculties to listen? They do want 
their legitimate requests discussed frankly and hon- 
estly. They don't want tired solutions and they do 
want imaginative responses. It is a generation that 
places some emphasis, I think, on style. 

Our problem where the suggestions, grievances, or 
demands are voiced, is to listen and to convince stu- 
dents that we are listening with an open mind. The 
conclusion that I am forced to is that for many stu- 
dents, the tactics which seem to be in such vogue re- 
flect a crisis of confidence. Students do not feel they 
are being listened to; hence, they adopt measures 
guaranteed to secure a hearing. 


It is not surprising that this generation has con- 
cluded that we have failed to meet our goals. Al- 
though we have good goals, we have not developed 
the means to achieve them. Thus, our education 
(whether you think of education as content or tech- 
nique) failed to provide the means; it did not train 
us in ways and ideas which were relevant to the task 
at hand. Consequently, we must re-examine and 
overhaul our educational philosophy and our educa- 
tional system. One group of students' demands then 
is aimed at an alteration of curricula patterns, curricula 
forms, and content of curricula. But this demand en- 
counters the habits and entrenched interests of the 
faculty and it encounters the habits, the budgets, and 
the experience of administrators. Out of these con- 
flicting interests, then, will emerge different definitions 

September 1969 

of relevance. The product is misunderstanding and 
some confusion. 

The student of today also senses that his world, the 
world of post-igjo, is going to be a vastly different 
place from the world which we think of as normal. 
He wants his education keyed to that fact. He also 
wants to get on with the job of resolving some of 
these problems. He is genuinely concerned about 
poverty, about the problem of the inner city, the in- 
justice to minorities, and about peace. The facts re- 
lating to these problems violate his conception of the 
democratic dream. He would like to get on with it. 

What happens if he asks loud urgent questions, then 
is told to be quiet: When he calls for a major drive 
on social problems, he is told there is no money in 
the budget. The war in Vietnam seems to intrude into 
every discussion and every desicion which involves 
him, the future, and his role in it. He can't plan his 
career. He can't drop out of college to work, to think, 
to mature, or to get married. There's the draft. The 
war has not been sold to him as a valid manifestation 
of national interest. The more disenchanted he be- 
comes, the more faults he finds in the system and the 
more he resists the war, the draft, and the political 
economic system tied in with it. 

College campuses then have found themselves caught 
up in agitational movements concerned with national 
issues and we really are not prepared by organiza- 
tion or by experience to cope with significant move- 
ments of this sort. As the agitation continues it draws 
recruits from other movements concerned with purely 
internal institutional matters, curriculum, internal stu- 
dent government, etc. Often they become merged 
into a single movement and thus generate and re- 
generate their own energy. At this point those who 
disagree with their ends and those who dislike their 
means also join forces and add to the confusion. 
Statements in support of sternness and support for 
the old-fashioned virtues simply do not get to the 
root of the matter. 


Recently, Amherst devoted two days to a long dis- 
cussion of the many questions that interest and vex 
students. From it came a statement which called on 
our leadership to get on with the job. Out of it, also, 
came an apparently candid discussion of their own 
local problems and some decisions. The results were 
visible and convincing evidence that all interested par- 
ties had been heard and listened to. Confidence was 
maintained. The sense of community at Amherst may 
well have been enhanced. I should expect that stu- 
dents, faculty, and administration (the academic trin- 
ity) emerged with greater understanding and with 
greater respect for one another. In any event, no build- 
ings were occupied, no lawless disruptions dragged 

Amherst through the headlines, and no force was em- 
ployed on either side. No doubt lots of paper was 
consumed and I would assume that the mimeograph 
machines ran overtime. But, Amherst remains an in- 
stitution where reason still reigns and men of good 
will can sit down together. I like this solution better 
than that of the national administration's. What we 
really need is a moratorium on eloquent statements 
and hypcibolic resolutions. 


Dr. Robert Jay Lifton, professor of psychiatry at 
\ ale, sees evidence of a new psychological pattern 
which amounts to a new kind of person — the "Protean 
Adan." The term derives from Proteus, obviously of 
Greek mythology, who could change his shape with 
relative ease. He could not and would not commit 
himself to a single form, the form most like his own, 
until he was seized and chained. Dr. Lifton has found 
his new man in Asia, Europe, and America, and has 
given us a valuable insight into these campus char- 
acters who worry so many people. His diagnosis is 
rational, and for me, hopeful. Too often we are told 
that there is only a noisy minority of activists who 
don't really stand for anything. The solution is to 
stand firm, crack heads, and take no nonsense. It is 
the law and order syndrome. 

In point of fact, we are dealing with a generation 
in search of itself: hence, the identity crisis; the yearn- 
ing for a sense of personal identity suggesting an inner 
stability which is derived from a vision of a tradi- 
tional culture in which man's relationship to his in- 
stitutions and symbols is fairly intact. This is not 
the case today. Much of the old sense of oneness, or 
unity, with an authoritative culture has been eroded 
by affluence, and its contrast with poverty, and by 

The new man, then, is a product of two modern 
historical forces. The first is the decline in the sense 
of connection and continuity which men have long felt 
for the symbols and myths of their cultural traditions. 
These include the family, ideologies, religions, etc. To- 
day many find these irrelevant or burdensome, yet 
they are unable to escape them and continue to carry 
them around and to be affected by them. 

The second force is the flood of images beamed at 
this generation by our communications media. These 
images touch and overwhelm the generation with su- 
perficial messages, undigested cultural elements, and 
numerous partial alternatives in every facet of their 

From every side the new man has presented to him 
an endless series of experiments and explorations 
which he may try, adopt, and discard with abandon. 
The result is a good deal of confusion both on the 
surface and down inside. He no longer has simple 


The Sewanee News 

choices between good and evil, or between right and 
wrong. Pie has a set of alternatives, each attractive 
and rational, to choose among. No wonder he emerges 
as a character, or an actor, with several masks or im- 
ages of himself. Each one expresses something of 
himself. But which one expresses himself best — to 
himself and to the world: He does not know. How does 
he make a choice? He does not know and neither do 
we. Yet we tell him he must choose. 

The result is that he makes one choice now and an- 
other later. Before we know it. he has made a third, 
a fourth, and even a fifth choice. Like Augie March: 
"I touched all sides and nobody knew where I be- 
longed. I had no good idea of that myself." So he 
dreams impossible dreams, adopts impossible roles, 
and aspires to impossible goals. 

If our Protean Man is to carry out his explora- 
tions, act out his various roles, he needs to be free of 
the overriding verities which our traditional culture- 
has always transmitted through the family, the church, 
and the schools. He needs this freedom from restraint 
for his search; but ultimately he needs this supertruth 
when his voyage of discovery is over. It is perhaps 
the object and purpose of his search. Here, then, is a 
paradox. He needs to be freed from the restraints of 
his culture in order to find and adopt them. 

The new. Protean, man can no longer give unques- 
tioning obedience to the old verities. Nevertheless, he 
is hungry for ideas and feelings that make the world 
coherent and make it merge his masks. While he yearns 
for absolutes, he finds fragmentary images more ac- 
ceptable than the complete ideologies of the past. Po- 
litical and religious movements will attract him briefly 
and alter his allegiances, but not for long. 

This constant flux of emotions and beliefs suggests 
to him that the world may, indeed, be irrational, and 
he takes refuge in absurdity and mockery. Plence, the 
put-on. If mockery and absurdity seem a part of the 
generation's life style, it is also its passport to sanity. 


How does this relate to our situation? The great ma- 
jority of our students are probably not budding Pro- 
teans, but they are watching, listening, and thinking. 
They were reared in the old cultural style and are 
not rebels. So long as they continue to find the faculty 
and the adminstration sympathetic, approachable, and 
responsive, they will follow us. Sewanee has always 
been a place where men, and now women, could ex- 
plore and experiment together. As long as the educa- 
tional process continues to take place in an atmos- 
phere of intimacy and concern, we can take heart. Se- 
wanee's strength has always been that it is a college 
where students are people and teachers are profes- 

sionals. These teachers have both a professional and 
a personal commitment to their students and the in- 
stitution. So long as we maintain this atmosphere, we 
will weather the adjustments that lie ahead. 

Stephen Zimmerman, '7/, of Pompano Beach, 
was the choice of the Purple editor to be stu- 
dent speaker on the symposium. Zimmerman 
opened with the statement that lie represents 110 
substantial body of Sewanee student opinion. He 
is the author of a series of articles in the Purple 
on. the student movements in various parts of 
the world. 

Stephen Zimmerman, student: 

/ think the student movement has to he under- 
stood in terms of questioning the very ends to 
which we are efficiently being channelled. The 
means have been found, and they work very 
efficiently; we have the draft system; we have an 
educational system which prepares us to become 
managers and take other positions of leader- 
ship — essentially paper-stamping jobs in large 
corporations. The system has provided our 
parents, at least, with many material benefits — 
color televisions and two cars are available to 
many in our society. They are not available 
to all, and this growing disproportion between 
those who do have color televisions and 
country clubs and those who do not is one 
increasing source of agitation, of unrest, today. 


Young people in this country today between the 
ages of fifteen and twenty-five have three alternatives 
facing them: they may go to school, they may go to 
the army, or they may join the ranks of the unem- 
ployed. The occupations which are open to them, that 
of student or soldier, are not so much opportunities 
for privileges granted to them but are occupations 
which are essential for the maintenance of the eco- 
nomic and political system in which we live. We need 
men for the Army to preserve this system and we need 
men and women with the trainins; and know-how to 

September 1969 


further and advance the corporate industries of mod- 
ern America. 


I do not think that Sewanee is engaged in war re- 
search, in the development of new bombs and chemi- 
cals, or the reliance upon large corporations to deter- 
mine the course of its academic study. Nor does the 
valid criticism of large, impersonal universities, with 
teaching done by assistants who do not have degrees, 
while the professors engage in research, as a stated 
cause for student unrest, apply to Sewanee. In the 
University, students are told that although they are 
"mature" enough to make a decision about whether 
they will give their lives for their country or will take 
the life of others; although they can at eighteen in 
some states, and in all states at twenty-one, decide on 
a President of the United States, still they are not 
mature enough to make decisions which directly affect 
their lives. Some see a contradiction in this. At Sewanee 
this theory expresses itself in what is called in loco 
parentis, which states that students are essentially chil- 
dren, and administration and faculty are parents away 
from home. Often students have been away from home 
for quite a long time. Many of us have been in the 
Peace Corps, others of us have been in the Army, or 
working, and this theory makes little sense to us. . . . 


What is important to recognize is chat the student 
movement is a world-wide movement. In communist 
or capitalist countries, young people are discovering 
from their own experience in those societies that the 
nineteenth century ideologies are in need of drastic 
change. The question is, then, how to go about that 
change? For those of us concerned with the question 
of where are we going, the problem is acute. 


Last week at Cornell University, black militants 
stormed a building at the University and came out 
with guns, and we are to say why. One professor at 
Cornell pretty well summed it up when he said, "Well, 
you know, guns work." Now I think this is wrong. 
But the only example that we have to look to is a 
generation and system which says quite openly that 
they do work. I don't think we need to ask why they 
did it if we believe their rights as individuals and hu- 
man beings were being jeopardized, if we believe they 
were fighting a system that would use those means 
against them. I was glad to hear Dean Webb speak 
against the law^and-order syndrome because I believe 
it is the institution of such means that brings about 
the growing militancy or the use of guns on campuses. 





The Sewanee New, 

September I9 6 9 

Managing Editor of the Chattanooga Times, 

Until our revolutionaries in the student 
movement begin to accept the consequences of 
their decisions and their acts, I reject their 
revolution out of hand. But I feel very 
profoundly that in many ways the students' 
desire for identification, for new existentialist 
understandings of the tremendous impact of 
the interaction of humanity is one of the most 
hopeful things in our country. 


I was asked to speak here today in the role of a 
parent of a Sewanee student. But I would like to 
address myself to the student movement in terms of 
my professional revolutionary background. I am sure 
that with many of you I share parenthood, but I sus- 
pect I am the only person here who has been a pro- 
fessional revolutionary in this country. I was one of 
the founders of the Newspaper Guild. I walked my 
picket lines; I went to jail. I have had a long record 
of activism in the labor movement of this country. 


We must recognize a few fundamental facts before 
we can address ourselves to the student movement. 
This is the most revolutionary period in all human 
history. The most powerful impact on our political 
and social structures throughout the world is the co- 
coon of communication that is being put around this 
planet. We da 11 it the electronic satellite communica- 
tion network. Estimates are that in about five years 
we will have universal television links all in order 
which will enable man for the first time in his history 
to have total capacity for immediate awareness and 
simultaneous knowledge. Moreover, in some ten or 
fifteen years from now, at the very peak of the ca- 
reers of these young men here, we should have atomic- 
powered manned platforms in outer space. Any coun- 

try that possesses a cluster of these will have the 
capacity for an additional 500 television stations and 
500,000 voice channels for the exchange of data pro- 
cessing information which ultimately brings about enor- 
mous material benefits and tremendous changes in the 
social and political apparatus of man's social orders. 
Obviously, what this means is that in this particular 
point of history we are approaching, the kinetic image 
will be the central and decisive experience for vas! 
majorities of people on this earth and therefore man's 
understanding of the sacredness of human personality. 
the extraordinary range of cultural diversity on this 
earth and the enormous conception of myth and poetiy 
that gives man some sense of spiritual fulfillment will 
have to be understood in a depth and range beyond 
anything we have ever known in human history. 

In a large measure this brings about what we call 
the educational crisis in the Western world. A trained 
citizenry, people who provide a sort of cutting edge 
in the social structures of the civilizing processes of 
man, will be in greater demand than we have ever 
known. This is the world in which you are going to 
live and from which there is no escape. Man will not 
hold back from his technological advance. 


Another fact that must be recognized is that we have 
a population now of three billion people on this planet, 
and it is estimated that within less than thirty-five 
years, by the turn of the century, the population will 
have doubled — the swiftest growth in the shortest 
period of time in man's recorded history. In our own 
country it is estimated that within another ten years 
we will add population that can best be measured per- 
haps in terms of having an additional fifty-five cities 
the size of San Francisco. We now have the specter 
of hunger and famine for millions upon millions of 
people on this planet. Population experts estimate that 
by t°74 we will begin to see the effects of famine and 
hunger at their most macabre; we will be witness to 
the most devastating moral challenge to people in the 
Western world. You will view it on your television 
screen just as you have viewed the impact of the 
Vietnamese war. 


Let me make this point. As I said, I have been a 
professional revolutionary in this country. When i 
first went to New York as a young reporter forty years 
ago I came from a very solid set of Southern ortho- 
doxies. In New York at that time we would meet 
often and talk until four o'clock in the morning with 
a group of Irish plasterers and bricklayers. The im- 
portant thing about it is that they were not precisely, 
or only, Irish laborers, but were professional killers, 
assassins, members of the Irish Republican Army, 


The Sewanee News 

having participated in the Irish uprisings in Dublin 
in 1916 and 1918. From them you learned one funda- 
mental thing about a revolutionary movement — that 
is, that there is always the great danger that there 
will come a time when you are so caught up in pas- 
sions, and the tyranny you oppose, that you may find 
you are seeking vengeance rather than justice. This is 
what Andre Malraux was discovering at the same time 
in China when he was the Minister of Information and 
Cultural Affairs for the Committee of Twelve in 
Shanghai. He too had discovered that one of the great 
problems was that in developing a real hard-nosed 
cadre of revolutionaries so often you must have people 
who in effect almost make a hobby out of murder. 


There is one vital distinction between the labor 
movement in the early days in which I participated 
and the student movement Mr. Zimmerman has dis- 
cussed here. I agree with his three alternatives but I 
think he has left out the important fourth alternative. 
Every man has always had this alternative oppor- 
tunity — to accept the consequences of his decision. We 
were involved in revolutionary conduct in which we 
were not being supported by our parents, we were not 
in some particular enclave within the social order but 
on the contrary, our jobs and our livelihood were ac 
stake. We had to have defined and stated goals. We 
had to come to some conclusions about where we would 
compromise; we had to understand something about 
the evil nature of man; we had to understand some- 
thing about the corruption of the social structures we 
were combating and how we might make a moral de- 
cision to share a little of that corruption if it gave us 
the goal. These are hard decisions to make if you must 
take the consequences. I think the thing you have to 
understand about the student movement is that, in 
my judgment, at this stage it is not a true revolution- 
ary movement. 

Former Sister Jacqueline Grennan, President of 
Webster College, recently made a statement that the 
gieatest problem for the student movement and the 
students on the campuses in this country is that there 
is no requirement that they live by the consequences 
of their acts. They are supported by their parents, 
they live on the campus. It is offensive to the poor 
and despairing of this country to see students live on 
campuses and engage in these simulated acts of revo- 
lutionary conduct and this wasteful attitude. One sees 
riots causing #200,000,000 worth of damage; yet the 
cry of the student leaders is the need not to waste our 
money on the Vietnamese war; among other things, 
we have to rebuild the cities ! It's a question of who 
wastes the money, Dow Chemical or acts of vandal- 
ism, destruction of property by student revolution- 
aries. This $200,000,000 is also taken out of the same 

taxpayers' pockets, depriving the same poor in the 
ghettos and the slums of our country. It doesn't make 
any sense to them. 

One of the great crises of this country is what we 
call the crisis of childhood — the abuse of children. 
This is one of the great health problems in our coun- 
try and yet you don't find anybody in the student 
movement addressing hims'elf to this. There isn't 
anything in the world wrong with leaving the campus 
and going to work, working within the system, work- 
ing against the structures and getting your education 
at the night schools that are proliferating all over 
this country. 


There are many wonderful, existentialist, appealing 
things about the student movement that I think arc- 
very valid. For instance, the understanding of the mo- 
rality of life that seems to emerge from the student 
movement; the feeling that if you are within a large 
institution you just don't want so many decisions made 
for you; the relationship between fellow students of 
both sexes — the deeper and richer existentialist under- 
standings that make me respect the integrity of your 
personality — -that if I am to possess you as a person 
I must always recognize that your love, your affec- 
tion, your trust are the most precious things you give 
to me. These are rich understandings and they will 
have tremendous impact on the cultural developments 
of our country. I happen to feel that the student move- 
ment in a philosophical sense is one of the most ex- 
citing and hopeful things in the country, but I have 
to say as a revolutionary in the past, I reject their 
revolutionary methods out of hand. 


In closing I might add that where Dean Webb men- 
tioned Protean Man, I would prefer Promethean Man. 
I feel that this is still a marvelous myth and symbol — 
man's stealing the fires from the gods, the wisdom, the 
knowledge, accepting the consequences of his act, but 
knowing always that he has found something divine 
in this world. I recommend from a revolutionary back- 
ground that you enjoy these four years; that you 
learn in the literature of man that there is a magnifi- 
cent thread of the power of love, the power of being- 
able to possess other people in the most rich and 
meaningful sense. I think the deceits and the hypo- 
crisies that you find in regular life are easy enough to 
overcome and that you have to make the decisions to 
combat those things. But I think you are in a very 
fortunate period in a rather strange society undergoing 
enormous changes; a very fortunate period to spend 
four years in an institution like this or its counter- 
parts; that in the possession of wisdom and knowl- 
edge and insight, the Promethean man, in my judg- 
ment, is still the one who offers us the highest hope.

Regents and 

Death of a Chancellor 

Bishop Charles C. J. Carpenter, 
former Chancellor of the Univer- 
sity and hence presiding officer of 
the board of trustees, died at his 
Birmingham home June 27 at the 
age of 69. He became acting Chan- 
cellor in i960 after the death of 
Bishop Thomas N. Carruthers of 
South Carolina. The next year he 
was named 15th Chancellor and 
served a six-year term. A native of 
Augusta, Georgia, he was gradu- 
ated from Lawrenceville School in 
1917. He received his A.B. degree 
from Princeton, where he was a 
champion wrestler, and his B.D. 
from Virginia Theological Semi- 
nary. He held honorary doctorates 
from the University of the South 
and the University of Alabama. Af- 
ter his ordination in 1925 he served 
churches in Georgia until 1936, 
when he became rector of the 
Church of the Advent in Birming- 
ham. He was consecrated Bishop of 
Alabama in 1938, and for a num- 
ber of years before his retirement 
in 1968 he was senior active mem- 
ber of the House of Bishops. 

Trustees Lay Down 

Far-Reaching Policies 

The present Chancellor, who 
succeeded Bishop Carpenter two 
years ago, is the Rt. Rev. Girault 
M. Jones of Louisiana. Already his 
board of trustees has made the his- 
toric decisions to admit women to 
the college, move toward student 
representation in its membership, 
and end required chapel attendance. 

A long-range planning and strate- 
gy committee was recommended 
last June, to plan for the assimila- 
tion of women; the choice and 
training of a successor to the Vice- 
Chancellor, who is planning to re- 
tire in three years; and to prepare 

Charles C. J. Carpentek 

a long-range program for the fu- 
ture of the Sewanee Military x\cad- 

The trustees gave weighted de- 
liberation to their responsibility for 
helping to channel financial support 
to the University. Bishop Jones has 
agreed to accept leadership for 
Church Support following the move 
of the active and able chairman, 
Thomas R. Ward, to the board of 

In abolishing the chapel require- 
ment the trustees at the same time 
recommended more convocations of 
the Wjhole community to include 
religious services. They asked for 
more instructors in the department 
of religion "to handle competently 
instruction in the meaning and in- 
terpretation of the Christian re- 
ligion in the world today." 

They also called for a periodic- 
review by a group to include stu- 
dents as well as faculty, adminis- 
tration and some of the trustees of 
what it means for this University 
to be a church university.

board of regents: the Rev. Lavan

The Sewanee News 

Independence Is Frequently Costly 

A message on occasion of the dedication 
of the J. Albert Woods Science 
Laboratories, May 10, 1969. 


President of the University of Chicago 

The dedication of the Albert Woods 
Science Laboratories is a significant 
occasion for all who are dedicated to 
scientific discovery and to the understand- 
ing of the methods of science. The Univer- 
sity of Chicago rejoices with you in the 
completion of these laboratories. We con- 
gratulate you on this achievement. 

This facility symbolizes a commitment 
to the intellectual search for truth and the 
transmission of intellectual values. These 
are the basic values shared by institutions 
of higher learning when they are worthy of 
their calling. These values require a con- 
tinuity of endeavor and a steadiness of pur- 
pose. They gain in value as they are ad- 
hered to over time. They bridge the gap 
between the many worlds of intellectual en- 
deavor for they are central to them all. 
They represent both an independence and 
an obligation. 

The independence must be from the pres- 
sures — the many pressures of the moment—- 
which would continue the enslavement of 
the mind. These pressures represent our 
own ways of thought which we fear to re- 
examine, the desire for popularity both 
within and outside the intellectual com- 
munity, an understandable willingness to 
gain support, even at the cost of many val- 
ues. Universities must continually remind 
themselves and their friends that independ- 
ence is frequently costly, but it is, never- 
theless, the necessary condition for a true 
university. The independence must be 
safeguarded and renewed by many actions, 
and must be symbolized in many ways. 
Complete independence is not possible- — ■ 

neither within ourselves nor within the so- 
ciety of which we are a part. For this rea- 
son, in particular, it is important that 
institutions of higher learning recognize the 
value of that diversity among themselves 
which enables each to pursue that excellence 
which is appropriate, and at the same time 
to add independent strength to the entire 
intellectual community. It is important to 
symbolize this diversity and this independ- 
ence. It is significant in this context that 
these laboratories have been created and es- 
tablished in such a way as to symbolize this 

a way as to remind and symbolize 
an abiding obligation. First, there 
is the personal obligation to maintain and 
create, without which private institutions of 
higher learning would disappear. Second, 
there is the obligation to attempt to under- 
stand and thus to respond to the conditions 
of our world. Failure to do this makes a 
mockery of learning, a pretend exercise 
which avoids the substance of issues. Third, 
there is the moral obligation to try to ad- 
here to the path of truth — a road of in- 
tellectual inquiry requiring the frequent ad- 
mission of failure. The independence which 
we all seek is for the obligations which we 
must embrace. 

This is a time when the very quality of 
American life is at stake and when our 
ability to maintain the highest morality of 
intellectual inquiry will be decisive in de- 
termining that quality. 

I congratulate the University of the 
South on its continuing commitment to in- 
dependent inquiry, on its present achieve- 
ment and on the hope for the future sym- 
bolized by the Albert Woods Science Labo-

Regents Tune In Students' Voice 

Increased responsibility for government by students 
has been approved by the regents. For over a year a 
faculty-student-regent committee has been working out 
a constitution for the new legislative body which will 
have power to legislate in all matters concerning stu- 
dent affairs and to appoint students to sit on all fac- 
ulty and University committees directly relating to 
student interests, in concurrence with the faculty and 
administration. Steps have already been taken to in- 
clude students on the board of trustees. 

A constitution providing for the new Delegate As- 
sembly in addition to the present Order of Gownsmen 
is now in effect. 

The Order of Gownsmen, established in 1879, has 
been, of course, the traditional governing body of the 
students at the University. It is composed of upper- 
classmen who attain stated academic averages (2.00 for 
seniors, 2.25 for juniors and 3.00 for sophomores). All 
graduate students, that is, all students in the School of 
Theology, are also automatically Gownsmen and they 
are also invited to elect representatives to the Dele- 
gate Assembly. The Assembly will be elected by the 
students in a ratio of one to twenty five. 

Dr. McCrady, commenting on the change, sees it 
as "evolution — an orderly progression. The faculty has 
not abdicated all responsibility for the students be- 
yond their academic qualifications," he made clear. 
"This would change Sewanee from what it was founded 
for. We must still strive to produce educated Christian 
gentlemen and now we must add, ladies. Wc ought 
to be able to combine this with an increase in student 
decision-making into a workable system. 

"We have always entrusted the students with the 
most important thing of all — honor," the Vicc-Chan- 
cellor points out, "and they have run it with responsi- 

The Order of Gownsmen will continue to enforce 
the honor code and to provide discipline for infractions 
of the code. It will also have a veto power, by vote of 
three-fourths of its membership, over acts of the Dele- 
gate Assembly. 

One of the stated purposes of the new policy-making 
group is to work in harmony with the Order of Gowns- 
men for responsible representation of the student 
body. That is, the two groups, one heavy with tradi- 
tion and precedent, the other vibrant with new com- 
mitment and an increased sense of participation, will 
together form the organized voice of the students at 
the University. All who have been attendant on the 
birthing of this new organization have high hopes for 
its role in making audible to one another all the voices 
of the University. 

Robert M. Ayres, Jr. 


Board of Regents 

Robert M. Ayres, Jr., of San Antonio, is the new 
chairman of the board of regents, elected by the board 
in their October meeting. Ayres is president of the 
investment banking firm of Russ and Company in San 
Antonio. After receiving his B.A. from the University 
in 1949, he did graduate work in economics at Oxford 
and at the Wharton School of Finance and Commerce 
of the University of Pennsylvania, from which he re- 
ceived an M.A. 

Ayres has responded generously to Sewance's call 
for enlightened leadership since his graduation. After 
the ten million dollar campaign, his "especially effec- 
tive brand of leadership" and his "quiet energy and 
dedicated involvement" were noted by administrative 
officers here who had been working with Ayres. 

In a speech delivered to the Alumni Council, Ayres, 
w ho was then president of the Associated Alumni, 
recorded his strong views on the University's job of 
producing enlightened leaders — "In today's rapidly 
changing world, where education is so important in the 
development of informed leadership, of equal im- 
portance is an informed, dedicated alumni to the fur- 
therance of our University's goals." 

He has served as a member of the board of trus- 
tees of the University, past president uf the board of 
trustees of Texas Military Institute, and a member of 
the board of the Good Government League of San An- 
tonio, to mention only a few from a long list of com- 
mitments to education and to civic responsibilities. 

Twenty-Second Diocese 

With the formation of the new diocese of Southeast 
Florida the University again has twenty two owning 
dioceses. At one time in the past there were twenty 
two, but the diocese of Easton (Maryland) later 
dropped from the list leaving twenty one. 

Last January the diocese of South Florida voted to 
divide into three sections. The central part of the 
state remains the diocese of South Florida; the new 
diocese of Southeast Florida includes the southeast 
coast and the southwest coast will become the third 
diocese. Approval for the plan was gained at General 
Convention in South Bend but the southwest area 
had not yet held its convention or elected its bishop. 

December 1969

Another Owning Diocese 

One of the first acts of the new diocese of Southeast 
Florida was to adopt unanimously a resolution to be 
one of the University's owning dioceses. The new 
bishop of Southeast Florida, the Rt. Rev. James L. 
Duncan, formerly suffragan bishop of South Florida, 
is automatically a member of the University's board of 
trustees; three other trustees were elected by the dio- 
cese. They are the Rev. James E. Rasnick of Jupiter, 
Florida; William F. Quesenberry of Coral Gables; and

Grant to Sewanee Review 

The Sewanee Reviezv received a $500 grant from the 
National Endowment for the Arts for publishing Ely 
Green's Aristocratic Mouse in the Winter '68 issue. 
Green's story of his life in Sewanee, called, simply, 
Ely, and published by Seabury Press, was reviewed in 
this magazine on its publication. The rest of the #1500 
award will go to Green's estate. The grant results 
in publication of the material in an anthology to be 
brought out early in 1970 by the Viking Press. The 
aims of the grant are to provide larger circulation to the 
writers of the selected pieces, to supplement small pay- 
ment to the writer and to reward the publishing jour- 
nal for its perspicacity in selecting the material for 

St. Luke's Day 

The keynote address for the annual St. Luke's Con- 
vocation was given by Oscar Carr on Tuesday, Octo- 
ber 14. Carr is a Clarksdale, Mississippi planter and 
was a deputy to the General Convention. Wednesday's 
speakers at the day-long affair included the Rev. 
Frederick B. Williams, president of the Union of Biack 
Clergy and Laity, now vicar of St. Clement's Church 
in Inkster, Michigan, and Dr. Nicholas Paster, pro- 
fessor of psychology and education at City College 
of New York. The junior class skit and the St. Luke's 
Society dinner followed by a dance in the Phi Gamma 
Delta fraternity house ended the session on a more re- 
laxed note.

Seminarians Attack Camille 

Residents along the Hurricane Coast were long on 
praise of the seminarians who were "lent" to them 
following the disaster of Hurricane Camille. Two of 
the men, Herschel Atkinson, T'70, and David Tilley, 
T'70, who were assigned to work with members of St. 
Patrick's Episcopal Church in Long Beach, received 
particular plaudits. All that remains now of St. Pat- 
rick's are the concrete steps which have been the set- 
ting of a marriage ceremony. In a letter of thanks to 
George Alexander, dean of the School of Theology, 
Tilley and Atkinson were described as "untiring in 
their efforts, unflagging in their good humor, and re- 
luctant to quit at the end of each day. At a time when 
we were all sinfully depressed and in shock these men 
came to us like a breath of fresh air. The parishes that 
call either of these fine men will be fortunate indeed!" 
We salute all of the seminarians who helped create 
some order out of the chaos of Camille.

Grant Foundation Award 

It is the aim of the University that no student should 
be prevented from enrolling for financial reasons. Se- 
wanee has long turned out a disproportionately large 
number of business and political leaders, Episcopal 
bishops and Rhodes scholars. In order to continue to 
attract the leadership of the future, she is continuing 
to increase scholarship aid in the faith that support 
can be found. 

Two new grants to the University have been allo- 
cated to scholarship funds. The Nathan A. Crockett 
bequest of $772,600 was reported in this magazine in 

The Charles M. and Mary D. Grant Foundation has 
awarded the University a grant of $30,000, income 
from which is to be awarded annually by the Vice- 
Chancellor to worthy and needy students. This grant 
lias been made through the Morgan Guaranty Trust 
Company of New York "in recognition of the superior 
leadership and quality of your fine institution over the 

Dr. McCrady, in his reply to the foundation, said 
"Your grant comes at a time when we need every cent 
of scholarship money possible." The University has 
been dipping into its operating budget until previous 
commitments by the Crockett Fund's trustees are met. 

Aid Totals Half a Million 

Tom Moore, director of financial aid, has announced 
the University has awarded almost half a million dol- 
lars in financial aid for the current school year. Of 
the approximately 900 students attending the Univer- 
sity, over a hundred hold scholarships of varying 
amounts, totaling about half the financial aid given. 
The other half consists of student loans and remission 
of tuition to sons and daughters of Episcopal clergy, 
college staff and residents of the county. Campus jobs, 
held by many students, are not included in the total. 

New Student Health Officer 

Dr. Roger Way, '30, retired urologist from Spartan- 
burg, South Carolina, began his duties as University 
Health Officer on November I. He will assume respon- 
sibility for the health of the University and SMA stu- 
dents. His office is located in the building formerly 
occupied by Dr. C. B. Keppler. His son, Roger Way, 
jr., is a member of the class of '69. Dr. and Mrs. Way 
are currently renting "Miss" Polly Kirby-Srnith's house 
which has lately become the property of Peter Taylor, 
distinguished short story writer.

Faculty on Leave 

Three members of the college faculty are on sab- 
batical leave this year. Miss Martha McCrory, assist- 
ant professor of music and director of the Sewanee 
Summer Music Center, is spending eight weeks in Eng- 
land and on the continent to study and observe music 
schools. She will spend the remaining weeks at East- 
man School of Music and Peabody College observing 
undergraduate and graduate courses before returning 
to the Mountain in time to teach her second semester 

Thaddeus C. Lockard, assistant professor of Ger- 
man, is spending the academic year 1969-70 at Vander- 
bilt, completing course requirements for the Ph.D. in 
German and working on his dissertation. Mr. Lockard 
was ia recipient of a grant from the Ford Foundation's 
Humanities Faculty Development Program for his 
work at Vanderbilt. 

Dr. Eric W. Naylor, '58, assistant professor of Span- 
ish, is off to Madrid where he is working with a co- 
author at the University of Madrid on the second vol- 
ume of an edition of the Libre de Buen Amor by a 
fourteenth century writer, Juan Ruiz. The collaborators 
published the first volume in 1965. Dr. Naylor will 
return to Sewanee in the fall of 1970. 

The Rev. Herbert S. Wentz, assistant professor of 
religion, is on leave of absence for two years to the 
University of Exeter, England. He is working under 
the theology faculty on research leading to the Ph.D. 
Wentz also received a grant from the Humanities Fac- 
ulty Development Program to assist him during his 
two-year stay in Exeter. 

Ford Grant for Humanities 

The Ford Foundation grant to establish a Humani- 
ties Faculty Development Program given to the Uni- 
versity last year has been used to help support and 
stimulate creative and scholarly activity on the part 
of the humanities faculty. Nine applicants received 
38,850 in the first year of the program. 

In the pattern of most foundation giving, the award 
of $25,000 by Ford will be matched in increasing 
amounts by the University until at the end of the four- 
year period specified in the grant, the total cost of a 
$12,500 a year fund will be taken over by the Uni- 

"Incentive awards are now the most popular form 
of foundation giving," said the Dean of the College, 
Dr. Stephen E. Puckette. who will administer the fund 
with a committee. "The foundations are willing to 
pay as long as the institution is doing its part. Once 
the pump has been primed, they clear out and invest 
in another program.''' 

Faculty members have received awards for travel, 
research and assistance in attending professional meet- 
ings and seminars. Recipients for 1969 are Dr. Wil- 
liam T. Cocke III, assistant professor of English, who 
spent the summer at the Southeastern Institute of 
Medieval and Renaissance Studies held this year at 
the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill; the 
Rev. Herbert S. Wentz (see notes on sabbatical 
leaves); Dr. A. Scott Bates, professor of French, who 
will be given a reduced teaching load in order to edit 
and translate; Thaddeus C. Lockard (see notes on sab- 
batical leaves).

Faculty Family 
Extends a Hand 

Dr. and Mrs. Sherwood Ebey have been responding 
to the "crisis of childhood" for some time. 

John Popham, managing editor of the Chattanooga 
Times, spoke of the tens of thousands of children in 
this country who are beaten, molested, the children 
of men and women in prison, in the press seminar dur- 
ing last spring's dedication of the Woods sc ; ence build- 
ing. Quietly, and with care and concern, the Ebeys 
have worked out a relationship with three inner-city 
children, now wards of the state, until the children 
consider the Ebeys "family" and Sewanee "home." 

Ebey, assistant professor of mathematics, his wife 
and four young Ebeys came to Sewanee to join the 
mathematics department last fall from Mercer College 
in Macon where they first met "the children" as they 
say, four years ago. Now thirteen, ten and nine, 
Sherry, Jim and Mike were then hardly old enough 
to understand their father's desertion of the family, 
their mother's lack of organization and judgment. 

"I used to visit their mother and she talked and 
talked. I tried not to preach; she needed someone to 
listen to her. She lived from crisis to crisis, ate on 
welfare, and finally became a voluntary patient in a 
mental institution," Mrs. Ebey said. "Last summer 
the mother was eventually declared unfit to care for 
her children," continued Mrs. Ebey, "and they were 
sent to an orphanage by order of the juvenile court, 

The children's visit to Sewanee last summer was 
unexpected, but with characteristic generosity, the 
Ebeys agreed immediately that the children's vacation 
from the orphanage should not be spent in Macon, 
but in Sewanee. 

"The boys, especially, wanted to call us Daddy and 
Mother — but we said no. After all, the judge decides 
their fate and we think it important the children learn 
to accept this," said Ebey. "They obviously think of 
this as home, which pleases us, but we are not their 

Given bicvcles and the kinds of freedom Sewanee 
children have always had, Sherry and the boys had a 
taste of what life outside the inner-city might be like. 
They learned to swim in the Red Cross swimming pro- 
gram at Lake Cheston, checked out books weekly from 
the Thurmond Library (the boys read the same books 
the Ebey's four-year-old daughter enjoys), and res- 
cued two lost kittens, which the Ebeys have as a sum- 
mer legacy. 

Mrs. Ebey continued, "The thing the children loved 
best to do was sit around the table after dinner and 

"One of the great crises of this coun- 
try, taking place at this very hour, is 
what we call the crisis of childhood."

talk. The idea that a family could have things to talk 
about and that their own contributions were valuable 
was a new one to the children. We made plans for 
weekend guests and shopped weekly for groceries, 
which the children hadn't done before. They were sur- 
prised when I bought more than one bag of cookies at 
a time." 

Ebey took up his wife's comments to point out that 
"the biggest difference in the way our own children 
are raised and the upbringing the children had is the 
lack of sense of order, or organization — a concept of 
time as something more than immediate. They don't 
have the idea of a day as a unit. Planning for the next 
one was a new experience. Why buy two bags of 
cookies when all you can eat right nozv is one bag? 
Any sense of order or identity the children have came 
from the housing project they lived in, not from their 

The Ebeys obviously believe that positive environ- 
mental influences will have some effect on these chil- 
dren's future. "If we can encourage them to under- 
stand and then articulate their predicament it will be 
helpful," Dr. Ebey said in casual understatement. 

"The boys, and Sherry especially, feel their father 
didn't do right. Sherwood is the first man they've had 
around them over a period of time to give them an idea 
of the role a man should play in a family," added Mrs. 

Both of them are realistic about the children's pros- 
pects. "They've been tested and we know they will 
not be able to compete in a professional world but 
would do well in a skilled trade or a clerical job. As 
for their immediate future, they're welcome to come 
to us for Christmas and in the summers if they're al- 
lowed vacations from the Home," concluded Dr. Ebey. 

December 1969 

Allen Tate: 

Residents of Sewanee have become accustomed 
now to the sight of one of the country's most 
august poets and critics unobtrusively getting 
his gas tank filled at Ab's. 

Back in 1964 Allen Tate had decided to come back 
to the South on his retirement from the University of 
Minnesota due in 1968. He and his wife (the former 
Helen Heinz of Minneapolis) built a lovely house on 
Running Knob Hollow Road and Tate started teaching 
in the . English department and acting as consultant 
to the Sewanee Review on a day-to-day basis not pos- 
sible before his move to Sewanee. 

Allen Tate, erudite and witty, with the elegant man- 
ners so often forgotten now, puts one in mind of other 
more spacious and orderly times. He is a complex and 
intricate person, with his cold intellectualism and warm 
attachments to old friends and places, his sardonic 
glance and gentle humor, the blue eyes sometimes fiery 
and often sad. Occasionally the accumulated weight of 
the world's barbarism seems to rest on his shoulders, 
but then his quick, light step dispels that mood. 

A list of his honors and achievements runs to two 
closely-spaced typed pages. 

Is it any wonder we were all at least properly re- 
spectful toward and mostly a little awed by Mr. 
Tate's return to Sewanee. (He lived in Sewanee and 
edited the Sewanee Review 1944-46.) His decision to 
teach two semesters at the University brought to the 
English department here the kind of prestige which 
few colleges can achieve. But then Mr. Tate is an ex- 
perienced poet-in-residence. 

"In fact," he .said. "I was the second poet to be 
asked to become poet-in-residence, at Princeton in 
1939. Robert Frost held the position at another place 
before that. It was then I established the pattern of 
the position for the whole country. A poet must be 
able to teach in the classroom. He must work into 
the university pattern and not sit around being visited 
and propounding views. The pattern has been followed 
since then, although not always happily!" 

Since his retirement from Minnesota, Mr. Tate has 
been working on his literary memoirs. They have 
proved a more difficult task than he anticipated. The 
first chapter is autobiographical and is concerned with 
his childhood and early education. The rest of the 
book will treat the poet's literary friendships and re- 
lationships during his long and extraordinarily distin- 
guished career. ''The difficulty arises because I don't 
know what the truth is. I don't know the truth about 


A]]en Tate in a humo:ous moment ai the Labyrinth, student- 
lun coffee house, where Tate and others on the Mountain 
have read poetry to large groups of students and faculty 
rr embers. 

my friends and my relationships with them. I don't 
know enough about myself." The task then, has be- 
come one of discovering anel then facing the truth of 
his life and his relationships. 

Tate's views on some of the new poetry and poets 
are firm. ''Poetry has nothing to do with political 
revolution. I take a dim view of political activists 
marching in the streets and writing poetry." Three 
young men whose writing Mr. Tate admires are A. R. 
Ammonds, Daryl Hines and Phillip Appleman. ''They 
don't write like the beatniks who say, 'we must have 
a new consciousness; let's kill the past; the king is 
dead, long live the king!' There is no new conscious- 
ness, there is just consciousness. The real influence of 
the beats on poetry is over but goes on like a pebble 
in a pool sending out waves; people still imitate the 

"It's easier to get poetry published today. My first 
publishers were willing to take a chance on my poems 
only after I had written a biography for them which 
had made a little money. Now the university presses 
will publish any of the young poets." 

Mr. Tate returned to the editor's chair recently to 
edit a special memorial issue of the Sewanee Reviezv 
on his friend T. S. Eliot. The issue lias since been 
published in book form both in the United States and 
England. He maintains close contact with the journal 
as an advisory editor, and through his long friendship 
with present editor Andrew Lytle, another member of 
the original Fugitive group. 

Two new books will be added soon to the list of 
verse, criticism, biography and a novel which Mr. Tate 
has published. Essays of Four Decades will be pub- 
lished in Chicago this year and in London in 1970. 
The Swimmers and Other Selected Poems will be pub- 
lished in London and New York in 1970.

Bertram Wyatt-Brown, '53, associate professor of history 
at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, has pro- 
duced his first book: Leiois Tappan and the Evangelical 
War Against Slavery. 

The various phases of Tappan's life (1788-1873) are des- 
cribed by the author — his boyhood in rigidly Calvinistic 
Northampton; his rise to business success in Boston and 
later New York; and his avid support of the evangelical 
and social movements in the decades before and during the 
American Civil War. The relationship between Tappan and 
the reformers of the period is skillfully and fully analysed, 
especially the intriguing connection between Tappan and 
William Lloyd Garrison, the Abolitionist editor of The Lib- 
erator. The two men were deeply involved in the activities 
of the American Anti-Slavery Society, but they broke in 
1840 after Garrison advocated tying other social reforms to 
the banner of abolition. Tappan's enthusiasm for emanci- 
pation led him to found and generously support the more 
avid American and Foreign .Anti-Slavery Society. 

Lewis Tappan presents a balanced yet sympathetic study 
of ante-bellum religious and social reform. The leaders of 
the reform movements were not always attractive nor did 
many of them exude much human warmth, yet the authoi 
paints them with color, style, and occasionally, when they 
merit it, humor.

Socrates, The Father of Western Philosophy, by Dr. Bayly 
Turlington, '42, chairman of the department of classics, 
has just been published by Franklin Watts, Inc. The book 
was written under contract to the publisher and is part of 
a series on Immortals of Philosophy and Religion being 
commissioned by Watts. Dr. Glanville Downey, former fac- 
ulty member at the Graduate School of Theology, has writ- 
ten the book on Plato in the series. 

Written with young adults in mind, the book will fill the 
gap in the field between children's illustrated biographies 
and more specialized material intended for classics initiates. 
Any layman should find the book entertaining and infor- 
mative. Recent scholarship on the Sophists has been taken 
advantage of, and included in the volume is Turlington's 
translation of the Apology of Socrates, his speech of de- 
fense when on trial for his life, as reported by Plato.

Louis Untermeyer and Kenneth Patchen have written 
forewords for A. Scott Bates' Poems of War Resistance: 
from 2300 B.C. to the Present. Bates, professor of French, 
has edited what Patchen calls "the finest collection of anti- 
war poetry now available in English." He has divided these 
poems, which cover both pacifist and resistance poetry, into 
eight sections, each concerned with its own specific voice 
and protest, ranging from a single man confronting another 
with a weapon, to mass slaughter by thermonuclear war- 
heads. Bates includes in his selection such poets as William 
Blake, Aristophanes, Howard Nemerov and e. e. cummings. 
It is his aim in the collection to make a permanent record 
of peace poetry throughout the ages from all cultures.

The Raven and Other Fairy Tales, retold and illustrated 
by Joan Balfour Payne (wife of Dr. John B. Dicks, '48, of 
Sewanee, formerly a member of the department of physics) 
has been published by Hastings House in time for Christ- 
mas buying. 

In her dedication Miss Payne says, "Fairy tales are the 
common heritage of the human race. The earliest ones were 
told between the very roots of the family tree of man and 
countless generations of stoiv tellers have told and retold 
them with infinite variations. No children should leave 
childhood without having envisioned themselves in their 
magical roles of kings' sons and daughters, gifted with 
beauty and power over evil. The following four stories I 
first retold and illustrated, without thought of publication, 
for the children of the Sewanee Kindergarten and Nursery 
School. Now I offer them, as a book, to all children who 
can delight in the magic, wit, and beauty of humanity's 
old tales." 

The Story of the Blazers, Otto J. Scott's The Exception: The 
Story of Ashland Oil and Refining Company, published by 
McGraw-Hill, is a heartening one. 

Rexford S. Blazer is a regent of the University and this 
story of his company ought to have a particular interest to 
Sewanee alumni and friends; but no particular interest is 
needed to become fascinated by this glimpse into the work- 
ings of big business and the enormous acumen that it ab- 
sorbs. As the title indicates, Ashland sprang up by a process 
reversing that of most oil companies. The story of Paul 
Blazer, Rexford's uncle, and of Rexford Blazer himself 
is an exception in another sense. In this day of the or- 
ganization man here is proof that there are still some ''inner- 
driven" types making the wheels turn (David Riesman's 
category in The Lonely Crowd) and the Protestant ethic is 
not dead.

The Logic of Love 

Founders' Day Address 

Love is a four-letter word; even in Latin. And like 
other four-letter words, we tend to regard it in a half- 
humorous and half-disreputable manner. We've had a 
certain reversal of respectability of four-letter words 
in this generation. Some which previously were un- 
speakable, on principle, now apparently are not, 
whereas others, like "love," "rich," "poor," have be- 
come almost unmentionable. 

Nevertheless, love is an integral part of the social 
system and it is worth serious study, even by the so- 
cial scientists. Theologians have been studying it 
seriously for a long time. But the Queen of the Sci- 
ences has been locked up in her room for several cen- 
turies and nobody knows about this. 
Civilization has had an absurdly good press. 

If we look at society, which is my business, and ask 
ourselves, how is it organized, what are the genes of 
social organization, I think we will find three of them. 
You know in our trinitarian society everything comes 
in threes. The first of these is threat. I say to you, 
"You do something I want or 111 do something you 
don't want." This is quite an important organizer. 
It produced slavery; it still largely organizes the in- 
ternational system very expertly; it is occasionally 
very helpful in the raising of children; and it is oc- 
casionally noticeable even in such irenic institutions 
as universities — "You do this paper or you don't get 
a grade." 

The other organizer is exchange. This is my business 
as an economist. This happens when I say to you, "You 
do something that I like and I'll do something that 
you like." And this is a very important organizer. It 
has a much larger horizon of development than the 
threat system which tends to get stuck at a rather 
low level of development. All the threat system can 
produce is civilization and that's not good enough. 
That is, I regard the age of civilization as now pass- 
ing away and I regard this as a good thing. Civiliza- 
tion has had an absurdly good press. We are now 
moving into what I used to call post-civilized society. 
But I find this scares everybody so I now call this the 
developed society. It is what you get as the result of 
development. It's hard to come oul against the devel- 
opment of society. 
My love for my tax collector is very low quality. 

The third of the organizers is called the integrative 
system in my more respectable moods, but today let's 
call it the love system. This is that whole aspect of 
society which doesn't really fall under the other two, 
but deals with things like status, community, identity, 
legitimacy, loyalty, trust and love. And without this 

Dr. Kenneth Ewart Boulding, speaker for the annual 
Founder's Day convocation, received the honorary degree 
of doctor of letters from the University. At this convocation 
the new provost, Dr. William Brunei- Campbell, and dean, 
Dr. Stephen Elliott Puckette, '49, were formally invested in 
a Latin ceremony performed by Vice-Chancellor Edward

Colorado, Dr. Boulding is a prolific writer of books, articles, 
reviews and occasional poems. 

the others fall apart. Threats have to be legitimated 
before they can organize anything. Naked threat is 
very weak. The bandit can organize a temporary so- 
cial system. He says to me "Your money or your 
life." I give him my money, he gives me my life. It 
looks like an exchange, but it's a fraud. Anyway, it's 
temporary. If he wants to do this every week, he's 
got to be a tax collector. That is, 1 would have to re- 
gard this as in some sense okay. We have to be mem- 
bers of a community. We have to be bound together 
in some kind of integrative structure. I must say, my 
love for the tax collector is very low quality but it is 
still at the bottom of the scale of something one should 
call love. 

Without this, also, we can't have exchange. If ex- 
change loses its legitimacy, if people do not trust one 
another, then you can't really have exchange. As a 
matter of fact, my spies in the anthropology depart- 
ment tell me that exchange often begins in what is 
called silent trade — people who cannot even meet 
without killing each other are able to trade because 
one tribe puts out the salt and the other comes and 
takes it. You have trade in the absence of any com- 
munication. The stock market is more complicated than 
that although it has some similarities. The stock bro- 
ker is the altar on which you lay your offerings. It 
becomes obvious that without an enormous degree of 
trust, confidence and other integrative things, any 
complicated exchange is impossible. 

We have only what we call folk knowledge about 
love. Now, folk knowledge is good knowledge. On the

ether hand, you can't be an astronaut by folk knowl- 
edge; you'd better know something about differential 
equations. And there is such a thing, I've been ar- 
guing, as social astronautics. There are large and diffi- 
cult problems of the total society, the answers to which 
we don't know. Maybe we could know them. 
Love, like all simple words, has a lot of meanings. 

Now, as I just said, we don't know anything about 
love. However, I've been thinking about it and have 
some tentative propositions. In the first place there 
are at least five varieties of it. The first one is simple 
desire. We love ice cream. This is a legitimate mean- 
ing of the word — without desire we wouldn't be here, 
snd we wouldn't do anything. 

It can mean mutual desire: I want you; you want 
me. It is an important human experience at all sorts of 
levels — whether at the sexual level or just at the level 
of friendship. This is something that has gone on for 
a long time and is not to be despised. 

In the third place, love is a sentiment, what I call 
a sentiment of affection. This is a kind of agreeable 
warmth; it is the thing that binds us together in the 
family, in the friendship group, even perhaps in the 
economics department. And affection also is not to be 
despised. Without it the world would be horribly 

Then there is a fourth meaning — benevolence. That 
is, if I perceive that you are better off, I am better off. 
We can be quite mathematical about benevolence. 
That is, the rate of benevolence is how much you will 
sacrifice in order to see that I am better off by a dol- 
lar. If by two dollars, then my rate of benevolence 
is two. I calculate that our rate of benevolence toward 
the North Vietnamese is minus four — it costs us four 
dollars to do a dollars 7 worth of damage to them. 

But, benevolence is a mysterious phenomenon. With- 
out it, society would fall apart. If you're malevolent 
to most people, you can't even trade with them. 
You're benevolent; maybe not very benevolent, but 
without that you cannot sustain any kind of complex 
society. One of the very puzzling questions is how we 
learn benevolence and malevolence. Because these are 
not instinctual. The awful truth is, not even sex is 
instinctual. All we have is the vaguest of desires. You 
have to learn to love just as you have to learn to hate. 

The fifth meaning of love is particularly appropriate 
to this setting. The love for which there isn't an Eng- 
lish word is, of course, agape. It is the love which 
binds us together into communities; the love which is 
identification. This is the love which says, I am you. 
It is also something without which the world would 
fall apart. 

I've never understood the desirability 
of being hard-nosed. 

Now, as we all know, everything has pathological 
states. Everything has diseases and so does love. De- 

sire has the disease of lust, which is inordinate desire. 
This isn't only sexual; you can have an inordinate de- 
sire for economics. It is hard to tell what is inordinate 
because we don't know what is ordinate. 

Then, as we know, even mutual desire also has its 
pathological state. The two people who are wrapped 
up in each other are embarrassing to everybody else. 
There can be an exclusiveness of mutual desire which 
is pathological. We see this in the possessive mother. 
We also see it in the love of country which again can 
either be ordinate or inordinate. 

Even on the side of affection, there's a pathology 
of sentimentality on the one hand and anti-sentimen- 
tality on the other. We ran from extremes of senti- 
mentality in the nineteenth century to extremes of 
h nti-sentimentality in the twentieth. Now we are all 
hard-nosed. Anybody who confesses to affection or to 
sentiment or even to a taste for Gothic architecture 
obviously has something wrong with him. 

In the case of benevolence, I'm prepared to argue 
that malevolence is always pathological. It always 
makes everybody worse off. My own view on this is 
if you can achieve selfishness, you've come a long way. 

The pathology of identification, or the fifth variety 
of love is, on the one side, alienation, and on the other 
side, false identity. I don't know where pathology 
begins; all I know is that it begins somewhere. 

One of the great problems of 
society is motherhood. 

Well, if love has a pathology, does it have a therapy? 
1 think the answer has to be yes — but we don't know 
very much about what it is. It is taught more by ex- 
ample than by precept, Em quite sure. We learn to 
love from our mothers. If our mothers don't iove us 
we're in a bad way. If our mothers love us too much, 
we may be in a bad way also. One of the great prob- 
lems of society is motherhood and nothing can be done 
about it. I think we ought to put a great deal more 
into improving the skills of motherhood. There is no- 
thing natural about motherhood. 

This is the importance of Dr. Spock. My generation 
is the loveless generation. We cried in our cradles and 
we learned very early nobody loved us. And that was 
a real pathology. I must say I don't think the world 
will be any better until my generation dies off. This 
new generation has a different set of pathologies but 
they are much more entertaining. This is largely the 
result of Dr. Spock. I would nominate him as the most 
influential American of this century. Because "The 
hand that rocks the cradle rules the world" is perfectly 
true. He who rocks the rocker of the cradle rules the 
world twice. This is something which ought not to be 

What I'm arguing I suppose, is that we ought to 
take love seriously, but not too seriously.

The impact of the arrival of the 
girls has been as varied and com- 
posite as the life on the campus to 
which they've come this fall for the 
first time. If some of them feel that 
acceptance by the male student 
body has yet to be offered, others 
have begun writing for the Purple, 
singing in the formerly all-male 
choir, and, probably most signifi- 
cantly, been given the black gown 
as symbol of their membership in 
the tradition-laden Order of Gowns- 

A small number of upperclass- 
men, seemingly appalled at the 
thought of having girls in these 
sacrosanct organizations, have sug- 
gested treating the girls as they 
have asked to be treated — "just like 
us." Some of the girls echo this 
sentiment and do not want special 

Another question raised by the 
arrival of the girls is the whole idea 
of responsibility. As Dean Morrow 
points out, "No emancipated woman 
wants to live under rules, but do 
these girls really want to handle 
themselves independently:" She 
thinks not, because of the number 
of girls who have asked her to es- 
tablish a formal system of privileges 
for evening hours, weekend ab- 
sences and dress rules (which are 
similar, in Dean Morrow's rendi- 
tion, to the coat and tie rules re- 
established by the students year af- 
ter year). 

The impact of being able to 
spend one's entire day in the com- 
pany of a girl has made itself felt. 
It requires an adjustment on the 
part of both, and a rethinking of 
the possibilities for more complex 
and varied relationships inherent in 
frequent formal and informal meet- 


So the dialogue goes on. And 
gradually, as we all become accus- 
tomed to our new roles, as we try 
to redefine the kind of school we 
are, and as we learn to recognize 
again the validity of the principles 
upon which this University was 
founded, we will emerge not only 
with new understandings about Se- 
wanee, but about ourselves as well 
in this changing, changeless time. 

"A log with a e;ood teacher on one end 
and a student on the other." In the 20th 
century this definition of education is still 
a valid one at Sewanee, which has always 
stressed the intellectual and human quali- 
fications of its faculty. 

However, in these days of rockets to the 
moon and technology explosions, good 
teachers are no longer enough. Sophisti- 
cated instruments are needed to teach a 
sophisticated science. Happily, Sewanee has 

The recent gift to Sewanee Military Acad- 
emy from Texas Eastern Company for the 
completion of Hamilton Hall's science lab- 
oratories rounds out the physical facilities 
for the study of science at Sewanee. The 
J. Albert Woods Laboratories, completed 
last year, offer students of the College of 
Arts and Sciences access to equipment un- 
surpassed on the undergraduate level for 
course work and independent research. 

Plaques throughout both buildings honor 
donors of specific rooms and equipment.

oratories and Hamilton Hall are available

Alumni Affairs 

A picture of the Associated Alumni as a momentum- 
gaining organization was presented to fifty six mem- 
bers of the Alumni Council present for the November 
7-8 meeting in Sewanee. Presided over by new presi- 
dent James G. Cate, Jr., '47, the council heard reports 
from vice-presidents of the association dealing with 
the alumni fund, church support, Sewanee clubs, ad- 
missions, Sewanee Military Academy and the School 
of Theology. 

They also heard a State of the University address 
from Dr. William B. Campbell, provost of the Univer- 
sity, and a discussion of the new student government 
system by Carolis Deal, '70, president of the Delegate 

Speaking to an audience of more than one hundred, 
composed of alumni, their wives and members of the 
University administration at the Friday night dinner 
which opened the weekend program, Wallace West- 
feldt, '47, producer of the Huntley-Brinkley Report, 
said, "Those who ignore the tube in great intellectual 
splendor are foolish ostriches. To ignore what this 
medium is doing to our people is the most dangerous 
thing an intellectual can do."' He was introduced by- 
President Cate, a Sewanee classmate. 

Other speakers at the Saturday morning meeting in- 
cluded the chaplain, the director of admissions, direc- 
tor of development and the dean of the college. 

The weekend was preceded by the first in a series 
of Alumni Career Counseling programs. Seven alumni, 
each prominent in an aspect of the field of law, were 
invited back to the campus to talk with students con- 
sidering careers in law. They were introduced to the 
students at an informal get-together in Rebel's Rest on 
Thursday afternoon and spent the remainder of the 
evening and Friday morning in talking with interested 
students either individually or in small groups. 

Alumni taking part in the program were Clendon 
Lee, '41; H. Powell Yates, '25; Bertram C. Dedman, 
'$j; W. Sperry Lee, '43; W. Haigh Porter, '56; Gor- 
don Peyton, '62; Jay Reynolds, '66, a law school stu- 

The alumni office was assisted in the program by a 
student committee headed by Dick Lodge. Reaction 
to the initial program was enthusiastic and plans are 
now being made for future programs to include medi- 
cine, business, communications, public service and

law were, left to right, Bertram Dedman, '37, General Coun- 
sel for Insurance Company of North America, Philadelphia; 
Jay Reynolds, '66, senior at Emory Law School; Nathaniel 
Owens, 70; Henry Grimball, 70 and Frank Failla, 71. 

The initial group of St. Luke's Alumni Association 
Fellows-in-Residence were in Sewanee November 10- 
21 for a two-week period of study under the direction 
of a St. Luke's faculty advisor. They were the Rev. 
Martin Tilson, T'48, the Rev. Barnum McCarty, '54, 
T'56 and the Rev. Frank Ross, T'51. Each received 
a full grant for his study period from Associated 
Alumni funds. 

A reading program for clergymen, sponsored by the 
St. Luke's Alumni Association, has begun in the dio- 
cese of Upper South Carolina. Under the chairman- 
ship of the Rev. Robert Haden, the course had forty- 
one registrants. The book selected is Moultman's 
Theology of Hope and Dr. Charles Winters of the 
seminary faculty will lead a two-day seminar to dis- 
cuss the book at the conclusion of the reading period. 
Other such courses are scheduled for Birmingham 
and Upper East Tennessee.

Meeting with development office staff members Sollace Freeman and Mark Oliver and Associated Alumni vice-president for 
church support George Langstaff, '48, in early September, were these alumni who accepted responsibility for visiting par- 
ishes in their area on behalf of pa.ish support for Sewanee. left front row: Ralph D. Quisenberry, Jr., '33, KS; Dr.

Vice-president for Church Support George Lang- 
staff, '48, .concentrating on key parishes and key dio- 
ceses, was in Dallas and Houston with Mark Oliver, 
Sollace Freeman and Tom Ward in early September 
for meetings with alumni who had volunteered to ac- 
cept responsibility for calling on one parish each to 
ask for inclusion of Sewanee in the parish budget. 

Joe McAllister, '56, vice-president for admissions, 
has recruited sixty-five alumni admissions counselors 
in fifty-nine cities to assist the admissions office in seek- 
ing out and encouraging students to consider Sewanee. 

Louis Rice, '50, vice-president for regions, has be- 
gun work on an Alumni Welcome program, in which 
newcomers to a city will be greeted by an alumnus 
already living there. The purpose is to provide assist- 
ance in helping the newcomer get settled. 

"This is potentially the greatest service the alumni 
organization can offer its constituents," Rice said. "We 
hope to have it in operation by the first of the year." 

Alumni representing the University at special 
events on the campuses of other colleges and uni- 
versities recently have been: Charles Hugh 
Campbell, Jr., '48, at Coker College; l)v. John 
Chipman, Jr., '20, Gordon College and Gordon

College and Linfield College, and Dr. Burr

The dedication of Hamilton Hall and the vote to re- 
join the Associated Alumni organization headlined the 
annual SMA alumni weekend in October. Under the 
direction of president George F. Wheelock, Jr., A'45, 
the Academy alumni organization will continue its 
efforts in behalf of the SMA capital gifts drive and 
will begin to broaden the base of alumni support 
through various new programs. 

One of these will be an SMA Today program, which 
is to begin in February. Three groups of eight to ten 
alumni will be invited back to the campus for a two- 
day seminar to reintroduce them to the Academy. 

"We feel the amazing number of changes the Acad- 
emy has experienced these past few years has not been 
communicated to our people and we hope this will be 
an effective way to tell our story," Albert Gooch, exe- 
cutive director of the Associated Alumni, said. 

Sewanee Club activity for the fall began in late sum- 
mer with back-to-school parties in Columbia, Nashville 
and Atlanta. Sewanee dinners have been held in Flor- 
ence, South Carolina, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Nashville, 
Pensacola and Birmingham and parties preceding Se- 
wanee football games were held in Sherman, Texas; 
Jackson, Mississippi; and Memphis. The Charleston 
Sewanee dinner is scheduled for December 2. 

Enjoying a pre-dinner conversation at the Founders' Day 
dinner of the Sewanee Club of the Pee Dee area in South 
Carolina were, from left, W. Haigh Porter, '56, president of 
the club; Dr. Robert S. Lancaster, professor of political sci- 
ence, who was the guest speaker; the Rt. Rev. Gray Temple, 
bishop of the diocese of South Carolina, H'61, and St. Julian 
M. Barnwell, '17, who received the alumni exornati key, 
awarded to members of classes which have celebrated their 
fiftieth anniversary. 


Future football history buffs will not pair 1969 with 
1899, nor with more recent glorious seasons, but it 
offered great moments. 

After suffering losses in their first six games, the 
Tigers came to life to end the season on a two-game 
winning streak. The Tigers started their season with 
a 42-16 loss to a powerful Millsaps squad. In the fol- 
lowing weeks they lost to Hampden-Sydney 28-6, 
Maryville, 34-22, Austin 35-18, and two College Ath- 
letic Conference foes. 

In their first CAC engagement of the 1959 season, 
the Tigers met CAC champions Centre College and 
were defeated 20-8. The following week the Tigers 
traveled to Southwestern at Memphis for their second 
CAC contest in which they were defeated 36-22. 

Finally Homecoming rolled over the Mountain and 
the Tigers let loose by defeating CAC rival Washing- 
ton and Lee 37-21. The 1969 Sewanee football team 
was at last on the go. In their final game of the year 
the Tigers smothered CAC opponent Washington Uni- 
versity at St. Louis 36-20. It was a heartbreaking 
season, but it ended on a sweet note. 

Early in the season the Tigers lost the talent and 
ability of two< seniors because of injuries, Eric Newman 
and Chip Watt. Both were big losses to the squad. 
The other Tiger seniors are Howard Rives, Walter 
Merrill, Nathaniel Owens, Terry Roberts, Dean Hol- 
land, Pete Enwall, John Pullen, and Shropie Dunaway. 

Senior Nat Owens was, for the third year in a row, 
the Tigers' leading rusher with a total of 617 yards. 
Sophomore Keith Bell was the offensive leader with 
141 yards passing and 569 yards rushing. Beli also led 
the scoring with forty six points while Owens was a 
close second with forty two. Junior Tim Turpen was 
the leading pass receiver, catching twenty seven passes 
for 334 yards and three touchdowns. 

Turpen also handled the punt and kickoff return 
chores for the Tigers with a total return yardage of 
459. Sophomore Mark Tanksley served as the Tigers" 
punter with a conference-leading 37.4 yards per punt. 

Two freshmen led the Tigers in the passing depart- 
ment. Wally Wilson pulled off thirty completions in 
sixty five attempts, but had his record marred by ten 
interceptions. Gary Sims was the second leading 
passer with thirty one completions in ninety two at- 
tempts for 311 yards and only nine interceptions. Sims 
was also the third leading rusher with 247 yards be- 
hind Bell and Owens. 

The Sewanee Tigers can look forward to a strong 
year next year if they see the return of this year's 
standouts. Many of the men were inexperienced this 
year but could come back next year with a winning

Soccer — A Difference 

In the second year of varsity soccer at Sewanee, the 
Tigers had a season record of 6-3-1, a vast improve- 
ment over last year's record of 3-8-I. One big reason 
for this difference is a young man from Texas named 
Kyle Rote, Jr. 

Scoring seventeen goals for the Tigers, Rote gave 
Sewanee the offensive potential that they have lacked 
in the past. On the other end of the field Bill Tinsley, 
freshman goalkeeper, along with defensive stalwarts 
Chris Mason, Brocky Brown, and Bret Smith, turned 
away opponents' potential goals at a prodigious rate 
in many games until the offense could score. 

Tinsley had several games with more than twenty 
saves. The defense had its greatest hour in the last 
game of the season in which Jacksonville Lhiiversity, 
fourth ranked in the South, was held to two goals, the 
lowest number that they had scored all season.

s O Q 




Tor (be man Ulbo fia$ ewrytbing . . 

Does he really want camels bearing apes, ivory and 

peacocks ? 

Or a partridge in a pear tree: Or a rhinoceros foot? 
Maybe he thinks rhino feet belong on rhinos. 
Maybe he's the practical type and wonders where he 

would garage all those camels. 

Maybe he would like a lab or classroom, or a college 

Give him his own faculty lounge at only $7,500. Or 

name a scholarship after him. 
(Even the man who doesn't have everything might 
rather have a small gift made in his name to Sewanee 
than, say, a seat cover in the shape of Santa Glaus, 
luminous bar glasses, or a rhinestone flea collar for 
his dog.)
